Nokia Lumia 710 Cell Phone Review

Edit

Submitted by MG3 on Aug 31, 2012

The Nokia Lumia 710 is a great entry-level smartphone. It has excellent hardware, is tough and reliable. Windows Phone 7.5 didn’t disappoint us. Several features are obviously “inspired” by the iOS present on Apple’s iPhone, which is not a problem for the user. Usage is easy and intuitive, and installing (and uninstalling) applications and games is also quite easy.

Nokia Lumia 710 Review: Windows Phone, Now With 4G

Edit

Submitted by MG3 on May 07, 2012

The Nokia Lumia 710 is a solid, if a bit basic, smartphone. The Windows Phone 7.5 OS and its Metro UI are definitely a matter of taste -- I can recognize that plenty do not love them like I do -- but if you're a fan of it, the this smartphones is a great way to get the full, most up-to-date experience with the platform. And in terms of value, it's tough to beat: it's a 4G smartphone (granted, on T-Mobile's sub-par network) that you can now get for as cheap as $40 with a mail-in rebate and a new two-year contract with T-Mobile. Its specs are a little weak, what with the single-core processor, its meager and non-expandable 8 GB of onboard memory, and 512 MB of RAM. However, for entry-level users who don't need a powerhouse phone but want to jump on the 4G bandwagon, the Nokia Lumia 710 is a good option for a reasonable price.

Nokia Lumia 710 vs. Samsung I8350 Omnia W: Battle of the affordable Windows Phones

Edit

Submitted by MG3 on May 04, 2012

It really is a close call between the Lumia 710 and the Omnia W. If you started here , you'd think there's no story to tell. Of course, it's the (sometimes minor) details that set these virtually identical phones apart. The Lumia 710 does better at video recording but is failed by its battery in both video playback and web browsing. The Omnia has a slightly better still camera and clearly superior battery backup. Other major deciders besides battery performance are the difference in screens and the software bundle. A Super AMOLED screen lets you fully appreciate the beautiful simplicity of the Metro UI and the Omnia W has a clear advantage over regular TFT displays. However, the Nokia Lumia isn't too far behind - its ClearBlack display has more than decent contrast and commendable brightness.

Nokia Lumia 710 Review

Submitted by MG3 on May 04, 2012

Can the Lumia 710 help extend Nokia's reach into the mass market segment and help the company regain some lost grounds? The answer is not a convincing yes but it is still possible. However, competition from the likes of HTC and Samsung are going to give Nokia a tough time. Despite scoring a few brownie points with its solid build quality and feel, consumers may be hard pressed to choose its all-plastic chassis. To accentuate this point, consider the beautiful unibody metal chassis of the HTC Radar, and the Samsung Omnia W with its combination of plastic and metal materials in its design. From all perspectives, both devices portray a better finish and quality than the Lumia 710. The HTC Radar also has a longer battery life and an overall better imaging capability. When it comes to processor clock speed and screen technology, the crown goes to the Samsung Omnia W as it boasts a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display and 1.4GHz single-core processor.

File Windows Phone, in its current state, under: Great first impressions and shows great promise. Indeed, bargain hunters may be tempted to grab a Lumia 710 as a second phone, but there’s a long way to go. Some of the improvements, particularly for power consumption, need to be made urgently, and may deter the undecided. But if you're tempted, at least you can slot in another battery, which is its saving grace in this area.

The Nokia Lumia 710 is a good little Windows Phone handset. The differences between it and the 800 aren’t vast. The key changes are the halved storage, a less capable camera and a less stylish look. The only real problem we had was with the back-plate.

Nokia Lumia 710 for T‑Mobile review

Edit

Submitted by MG3 on Feb 14, 2012

The Lumia 710 comes at an awkward time for the consumer electronics industry. It launches quite literally during CES, the tradeshow where every major smartphone manufacturer announces its US lineup for the weeks and months to follow. Nokia will be there, too — rumors suggest it’ll unveil “Ace,” a new flagship Windows Phone device for AT&T’s LTE network. The Lumia 710 is an entry level phone for consumers without patience or foresight. It’s for those who have already decided on T-Mobile’s network, have no affinity for Android, and probably think the HTC Radar 4G looks awkward (not an unfair point) — and bonus, you can accessorize with different-colored back panels. But even then, the Radar 4G is a better value: it has internet sharing, a front-facing camera (both of which Lumia 710 lacks) and is virtually free on contract (at least when purchased online). It always feels like a cop-out to say just wait and see what comes out next, but that rings particularly true now. Although it was never built to be an aspirational device, as Nokia's first US product in its new era, I can't help but be disappointed.

Nokia and T-Mobile have just introduced the Lumia 710 on the T-Mobile network. This is an important launch for Nokia because part of the company’s future depends on how it is able to “reset” its relationship with U.S carriers that are The key players in the world’s largest wireless market. The Lumia 710 has been designed from the ground up to appeal to “first-time smartphone users”, a segment of the population that Nokia intends to win over. Overall, users will very much get the same user experience than they would on the high-end Nokia Lumia 800, but they won’t get the awesome Lumia 800 industrial design, the faster HSPA+ network, or the slightly larger battery capacity. Instead, T-Mobile users will get a noticeably lower price on the handset, which is always a classic trade-off.

When you stack the 710 up side-by-side with its sexier sibling the 800, you'll be hard pressed to find exactly what keeps this particular Lumia 90 points lower on the Nokia totem pole. It's certainly not the specs, as both handsets are nearly identical in that respect -- powered by a 1.4GHz MSM8255 processor, 512MB RAM and boasting the same undersized 3.7-inch screen, plus or minus the display tech. Really, it's the design (invisible vs. alluring) and camera module (five megapixel vs eight megapixel) that drive a price gulf between these two Mango offshoots. Contrast the 710 with its other budget WP 7.5 peers, factor in that super affordable $50 on contract pricing and, hands down, it's easily the most attractive of the single-core lot. Will it succeed in giving Nokia the US market traction it's long sought after? Probably not. The Mr. and Mrs. Johnny-come-latelies of the mobile world will neither make nor break the company's stateside success. That heavy lifting will surely fall to future Lumia progeny of the higher-end sort. No, the 710 is a solid smartphone for first-timers marred only by its faltering camera and nondescript construction. If you're just learning how to surf the internets and / or send a text, this phone's for you.

Nokia's first Windows Phone for the United States was really designed to be a budget smartphone. Many may be disappointed that it doesn't bring anything ground-breaking like the 12 megapixel camera from the Nokia N8 or even the polycarbonate body of the N9. Still you're looking at a device that packs a lot of great features into a sturdy, attractive, fast, and stable smartphone. If you're in the market for a Lumia 710, hopefully you don't care about a front-facing camera, Wi-Fi tethering, or a huge screen. Really you should buy this device for the inexpensive price tag, feature-rich people-centric operating system, and maybe even the interchangeable colors that you'll be able to get soon.

Nokia Lumia 710 Review - T-Mobile's Nokia WP7

Edit

Submitted by MG3 on Feb 07, 2012

The way the Lumia series is launching in the US is a bit puzzling to me. For all intents and purposes, the 710 is the first Nokia WP7 arriving on US soil, not its higher end brethren, the Lumia 800. Just like I noted with the HP Veer, it’s a daring move to put the midrange product out first, a step ahead of the super high end counterpart. No doubt that high end counterpart is coming at CES in some shape or form (possibly with LTE), but still, a daring move nonetheless. On the other hand, I noted earlier that the midrange is where I wager the volume of the smartphone platform war will be fought and won, and it’s here that WP7 is in a unique position to finally make feature phones obsolete. For $50 after subsidy, you get a device that comes with the same SoC as the other higher-end WP7 devices, a 5 MP camera that produces great photos, and whose only caveat is 8 GB of NAND.

Review: Nokia Lumia 710 for T-Mobile USA

Edit

Submitted by MG3 on Feb 07, 2012

The Lumia 710 is a solid smartphone from Nokia and a good addition to the ranks of Windows Phone devices. My only really quibbles with the 710 are the crummy buttons. Otherwise the hardware performs as it’s supposed to. Phone calls, in particular, were excellent on the 710 and it was a strong performer on T-Mobile's network in the NYC area. Battery life scored well and the 710 exhibited zippy performance all around. The Mango software from Microsoft is a solid operating system and offers a cleaner-looking alternative to the likes of Android. The additions from Nokia -- notably ESPN and Nokia Drive -- represent a good start for Nokia's potential in the Windows Phone space, but Nokia will have to do more with the ESPN Hub to impress me.

Nokia Lumia 710 review: Smack in the middle

Edit

Submitted by MG3 on Feb 07, 2012

The Nokia Lumia 710 has to share what's left of the spotlight with its Lumia 800 sibling - the one with the fancy unibody and AMOLED screen. Looks aside though, the two aren't that different and the 710 does come cheaper. The screen could have been better - in terms of viewing angles in particular - but it stacks up very well against mid-range competition. The camera was also pretty good, especially the HD video recording. And we didn't spend too much time crying over the non-unibody design, easy access to the battery makes up for that (and you get the added bonus of being able to spruce things up with a colorful new back cover). The Nokia Lumia 710 has certain limitations: storage is non-expandable, and 8GB isn't spectacular to begin with. USB and Bluetooth usability is limited too, but those are par for the Windows Phone course. And only two other devices come with free voice-guided navigation, both of which are Nokia made.

Although we would buy the Nokia Lumia 710 over the HTC Radar, it's overshadowed by the Nokia Lumia 800, which impressed us a lot more and makes the Nokia Lumia 710 feel more like its cheaper relative than we would have liked. We know that the phone costs less, but the cost savings feel too apparent. For the small drop in price and the expectation that both phones are to drop in price, we're left feeling that, unless you really want the changeable cover and removable battery, you're better off saving up a little more money and buying the Nokia Lumia 800 instead. The older phone gives a lot more bang for your buck. Based on the recent announcements from Nokia and rumours flying around the internet, it's likely this will remain the budget option for the foreseeable future - a little bit more of a price drop and we'll be a lot more impressed with this otherwise decent handset.

The Nokia Lumia 710 is a nice U.S. introduction to the Finnish company's foray into Windows Phone, but it leaves me wanting more. I was impressed with the Lumia 800 and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll see a higher-end Nokia Windows Phone next week at CES. But for first-time smartphone owners or for people who don't want to shell out a lot of money for a smartphone, the Lumia 710 for T-Mobile is a good choice.

The Nokia Lumia 710 could have been the first budget Windows Phone handset to attract users in large numbers, but the inherent limitations placed on Nokia by Microsoft, along with a couple of poor design choices mean it falls just short of being a great budget handset. However, if Nokia gets the pricing right, it could represent great value for money for those looking to take their first step on the Windows Phone 7 platform.

T-Mobile Nokia 710 review

Submitted by MG3 on Jan 24, 2012

The T-Mobile Nokia 710, known internationally as the Lumia 710, is a fine addition to the Windows Phone family. Nokia has played it safe here with a collection of hardware bits that not only fit the Microsoft set of parameters set out for devices running their mobile OS, but fit right inside what we’ve seen in the past for Nokia’s own line as well. It’s a convergence of minds here, ladies and gentlemen, and if Nokia can stay the course with Windows Phone here for a few more devices, I’d say they’re good to go for quite a few more years in smartphone manufacturing on the whole.

The Lumia 710 isn't as nice as the 800 but then we know that it isn't supposed to be. This is about making Windows Phone 7 affordable, and on that front the 710 is perfectly pitched. With the Lumia 800 around the £35 price point on contract, we suspect that you'll be able to get the Lumia 710 for around £15 - £20 a month with the handset "free". That's a good price in anyone's books. The Lumia 710 is perfect at showing that you don't need to have powerful expensive specs to still get a phone that is enjoyable to use day-in, day-out. It might not be as durable as the metal clad HTC Radar, but you won't be disappointed.

Nokia Lumia 710 (T-Mobile USA) review

Edit

Submitted by MG3 on Jan 17, 2012

As it represents Nokia's first effort in the U.S. with a Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone, it's hard not to feel disappointed with the Lumia 710. It doesn't turn any heads or break any new ground in design or performance, and there are some issues with the quality of the components in its construction. Still, it is a solid smartphone that offers a simple interface, quick performance, great call quality, and decent battery life - and at T-Mobile's $49.99 asking price, there really isn't much room for complaint here. For a first-time smartphone, a buyer could do much worse than the Lumia 710, that is for sure. Nokia has promised that it will bring a "portfolio" of devices to the U.S. this year, so those who pine for a high-end smartphone will just have to stay tuned. The Nokia Lumia 710 will be available from T-Mobile on January 11, 2012.

Nokia certainly has created a compelling Windows device in the $49.99 Lumia 710. Sure, friends and family with expensive Android hardware likely won't be impressed by the Lumia's small LCD screen and plastic design. That said, its low price, solid build quality, and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango capabilities just may wipe a few smug grins from their faces.

Behind the lights and glamor of being the first Nokia smartphone to arrive in the US with Windows Phone on board, there’s some expectations riding with its release. However, we’re simply not convinced that the Nokia Lumia 710 is going to be THAT device to bring Nokia from the ashes, but rather, we’ll have to wait a bit longer to find it. It’s not to say that it’s a totally boring device, but it simply lacks the star power to propel it over other recent Windows Phones. Frankly, it is a nice Windows Phone and the best thing going for this one is its $49.99 on-contract pricing right from the starting line – so it’s sure to attract those on a budget. Beyond that, it’s hardly a gleaming competitor to even things like the HTC Radar 4G or the Samsung Focus Flash.
