    The 9720 seems positioned to replace the Curve 9320 (in the UK; model number slightly different elsewhere) which was relatively inexpensive, but had a very small screen with noticeably poor resolution and PPI. Also it felt very plastically and was clunky. How is the 9720 by comparison - especially regarding screen and keyboard?

    If you watched a few hands on videos on YouTube, you'd probably get your answer. I have no experience with either devices, but I know enough to know that the 9720 is leaps ahead of the 9320, but far behind the competition.

    Hi mate, just switched from 9320 to 9720 for pretty much the reasons you specified. Screen is a vast improvement on 9320 and I can now view the web pages that I couldn't on the 9320, obviously It's not as good as 9900 screen but I will happily trade that off for the much longer battery life of the curve. Touchscreen is a great addition that I thought I didn't miss from the 9900 but it turns out I do!!

    Battery life is also superb on the 9720 - first charge took two and a bit days to get down into the red and it still hadn't switched the radio off when I plugged it in to charge. That was with very heavy use so will have to see how it pans out over the next few days and weeks. It was simple to set up for UMA and seems a much more stable connection than on the 9320 so happy with that.

    My only grumble of it so far is that Deezer, iPlayer and Sky Mobile TV are not currently compatible with the device so I am hoping that will change shortly. Other than that I am very happy with it.

    HTH
