Reviews summary

Based on 28 reviews

The ever ambitious Nokia is at it again with their very first Windows phone. The Nokia Lumina 710 boasts the Windows Phone 7.5 operating system and definitely offers bang for your buck. With its 3.7 inch LCD display at a 480x800 resolution, you'll get a crystal clear, colorful image even in direct sunlight.

The smart phone runs a 1.4 GHz processor and has 512 MB RAM which will give you a lightning fast and smooth experience, regardless of what you are using your phone for.

If you're concerned about the call quality, have no fear. The smart phone has remarkable clarity, and no one will ever miss a word with the well-adjusted volume on the speakers and microphone. If you don't get good reception in your area, you may not get the full benefit of your network's capabilities; but you will still get a decent connection.

The phone also has a very neat, concise and user-friendly interface; however, this only applies internally. The "start", "search" and "back" buttons are all placed on a single plastic bar which causes some difficulty when trying to select one option, and the buttons themselves are not as responsive as they need to be. This problem also carries over to the camera and volume buttons.

As far as multimedia goes, the Lumina 710 is equipped with a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash. The phone also will provide the user with access to the awesome Zune music service; and with an impressive, distortion-resistant external speaker you will be able to enjoy your music even without headphones.

Unfortunately, the Lumina 710 does not have the capability of having an SD card, and so you are limited to a tiny memory bank of 6GB. This phone may not be a groundbreaking juggernaut, but between the competitive price, great camera, good battery life, great UI and lag-free processing it will provide any user with a solid experience.

Need to know: Nokia Lumina 710

1. This phone exceeds its price range in terms of performance. You may not find another phone with the features and power of this one for such a low price. A solid entry-level smartphone for the first time buyer. (The Good)

2. If you spend a lot of time on the phone, the call clarity and reception combined with the bulky battery life will please you greatly. (The Good)

3. Unlike many smartphones, you won't be saving many pictures or songs on this one. With a miniscule 6GB of memory and no ability to expand it, you will feel pretty restricted in what you keep on your phone. (The Bad)

4. The physical user interface is not the best. If you are not particularly dexterous or used to small buttons, the plastic bar and volume/camera buttons may prove pretty frustrating for you. (TheBad)

A solid device at a decent price with a great operating system

from Know Your Mobile

All in all the Nokia Lumia 710 is an extremely competent smartphone. It looks good, has some very competitive hardware and comes packed with plenty of useful features and applications like Nokia Music, Drive and Maps. It’s also very well priced at £300, and while we’d definitely recommend the Lumia 800 over it, you will have to pay extra for the difference, which is predominantly cosmetic anyway. Windows Phone 7 is Windows Phone 7 whether its on a £800 phone or a £300 one. Overall, we seriously rate the Nokia Lumia 710. If you’re looking for a Windows Phone 7 handset but don’t wa...

Responsive UI, simple control, limited apps available

from Mobile88
In terms of pricing, the Lumia 710 is priced at RM999, while the Lumia 800 is priced at RM1650. It is obvious that the Lumia 710 would be an economical choice over the Lumia 800. Plus, the Lumia 710 also offers the same simplistic OS (Microsoft Window Phone 7.5 Mango) and it comes with decent specs as well... Full review

Very affordable, great build, poor battery life

from Brighthand

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-co... Full review

Good size, very comfortable to hold, poor viewing angles, very good battery life

from Mobile Syrup

Priced at $49.99 on a 3-year term, and $254.99 on a month-to-month plan, the Lumia 710 is a bargain, especially for those unwilling to re-sign a contract. Though its screen and camera are no match for the more-expensive (and coming soon) Lumia 800, this is a fantastic entry-level smartphone and one of the best examples of “the whole package” over individual components. Only when taking photos did I feel like I was missing out on the full smartphone experience, and even then the 5MP camera will suffice for most casual users.

Despite the handset's great performance, its average display is a letdown

from TechTree
The Lumia 710 has a beautiful and fluid UI. Its specs are better than those of competing Androids. The phone excels in the music playback and camera departments. What's more, Nokia Drive gives it an edge over the competition. On the other hand, despite the handset's great performance, its average display is a letdown. The 710 would have been a killer gadget had Nokia shipped it with an AMOLED screen. Overall though, at the price tag of Rs 15,500, it's still better than most Androids... Full review

Excellent display, no microSD card expansion, Internet Explorer 9 renders pages extremely quickly

from Reghardware
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... Full review

Good screen, great Nokia apps, good price point

from v3
With the Lumia 710 retaining most of the high-end specifications of the more expensive Lumia 800 despite the cheaper price tag, it is a very attractive proposition. Performance is very smooth and the seamless interaction with business apps such as Outlook and Office cannot be underestimated.The only real differentiating features between this handset and the Lumia 800 are the camera, internal memory and design. The Lumia 800 is perhaps the more attractive of the two, but the fact that the 710 has a swappable battery is likely to give it longevity... Full review

You're looking at a device that packs a lot of great features into a sturdy, attractive, fast, and stable smartphone

from Pocketnow

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-... Full review

Cheap, fast, free GPS app, good camera

from Pocket-lint

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 durab... Full review

Storage is non-expandable, disappointing audio quality, unimpressive battery life

from GSMArena

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 a... Full review

I've had my phone for 4 months Pros: - $0 on wind tab for 2 years (budget friendly smart phone) - a "decent" amount of apps I suppose....not great though - relatively easy to understand & use once you get used to it - decent size & fit - decent storage space - good fb app - makes for a good flashlight w/ free app Cons: - ugly cheap looking - Camera SUCKS! 5mp my a**! (only saving grace is that you can edit it w/ some free photo editing apps) - I don't like how you have to scroll down as opposed to left & right for the various icons - no folders to place icons in them - only 3 levels of brightness adjustment (i still find it too bright) - horrible sound quality (so much static); especially bad when you use head phones....don't even think of using it as a music playing device - can only turn on/ off the phone w/ the hold button (feels like it would break easily) - extremely hard to remove the back cover - no front facing camera - not so great alarm clock (you'll understand if you ever decide to get the phone) - TERRIBLE calendar....with its TINY writing (never use it) - not so great charger - short battery life - it has already turned off on me a few times....and I had to take out the battery & put it back in for it to work again. I'm pretty sure this is not good for my phone in the long haul...but hey...at least it still works.
