Review: Nokia Lumia 710

Why to buy:

The Nokia's Lumia 710 comes with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS and gives one lot of features to enjoy and work on. The camera is superb and so is the video quality. The 1.4 GHz Qualcomm processor powers the device.

Why to avoid:

The plastic body of Nokia Lumia 710 is not impressive. It has 512 MB of RAM, not fit for faster browsing. The keys/buttons are rigid and hard to press. It does not have front facing camera.

Our Take:

The Nokia Lumia 710 is simple yet amazing phone. It gives you good software advantages but has few hardware functions.

Rating:

Price:
Rs. 15, 500

Detailed Review

Design:

The Nokia Lumia 710 is simple phone priced at 15,500. Built with plastic body the dimensions of the phone are 119 mm, 62.4 mm and 12.7 mm in height, width and thickness. It weights 126 gm. Lumia 710 has Portrait display orientation with 3.7 inch display. For the safety of its screen it has Corning Gorilla Glass. The back cover is swappable and is available in many enchanting colours.

      

Interface/OS:

The Lumia 710 works on Windows platform and has windows phone 7.5 mango operating system. The Nokia Lumia 710 is power by 1.4 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. The Windows 7.5 mango operating system runs perfectly fine on this device.

Features:

The home screen or the start menu of the Lumia 710 is vertically arranged with live tiles. One can set your own personalized tiles on home screen like facebook, messaging, call alerts, e-mail and etc. It gives one live updates on these tiles as well. Lumia 710 has people hub inherited, which includes: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, Chat and SMS. For internet access one get Bling, Internet Explorer 9, HTML, Wi-Fi and Browser. For navigation one has Bling Maps and Nokia Maps in Lumia 710 and for GPS it has A-GPS in built. Filled with all basic and new home screen feature Nokia has made it value with Lumia 710 but fell short with 512 RAM. 

                       

Camera:

The Nokia Lumia 710 has a 5 megapixels main camera with LED flash light that gives perfect resolution to pictures but Nokia has left their trend leaving Carl Zeiss lens from it. One gets 4X digital Zoom to closely check images and mostly all graphics modes such as JPEG, BMP, etc, to be compatible with all system formats. And no doubt, Nokia has built their image for delivering good quality cameras and Lumia 710 comes with that same quality. The quality one gets with this phone is really amazing. The 5 MP camera shoots video in 720 pixels resolution and the outcome is great. But in this same price range other manufacturers provides HD resolution, which gets hard for Nokia to justify.

                                             

Audio/Video:

The Audio quality of Lumia 710 is clean and clear. But when on loudspeaker mode, the voice is clear but sounds thick. With access to almost all music formats it has media player supporting both audio and video hub. The music section in the media player consists of albums, songs, playlists, genres and artists. And to store all downloaded audios and videos and then there is Podcast section under music folder. With the Lumia 710 one gets  3.5 mm universal handset WH – 208 with which you can tune in to FM too if want to enjoy latest tracks and record to your playlist also. The media player plays all your videos, be it downloaded or recorded video or even live browsed video. It gives you 720 pixels sharp resolution that fits best with 3.7 inches screen size. But it lacks HD trend that gives edge to its competitors.

Memory:

Lumia 710 provides only 8GB of inbuilt memory with no micro SD card slot. So, one will have to be satisfied with this limited space. Though, it is enough to save one good number of images, few small size videos and data.

Battery:

The Nokia Lumia 710 offers one 1300 mAh BP – 3L battery which works just OK with the phone, but thanks to the 512 MB RAM which gives this phone smart Talk Time and Stand By Time. The Talk time on 2G is 6.9 hours and 7.3 on 3G, whereas the Stand By time is almost same to around 400 hours both on 2G and 3G.

Conclusion:

The Lumia 710 of Nokia with this price range has couple of restrictions like, the memory storage is limited to only 8 GB and with no HD video resolution. But apart from these drawbacks Nokia Lumia 710 has made its presence well noticed. Strong 1.4 GHz Qualcomm processor will assure one fast processing and downloading. The 5 MP camera is amazing as it gives you sharp and clear images even in less light or indoor shoot. But with 512 MB of RAM one will have to wait a bit to switch to another programme or apps instead moving quickly on android. The 7.5 mango Windows operating system is good and fits best in this phone. Overall, we give this phone a 3.5 star rating.
