  • Nice and simple phone crippled by the lack of Win 8 update

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I've had Lumia 710 for over 2 years now. Battery still hold for about 2 days (1 day if its heavy use). Lots of room for music and stuff, no lag or crashes, pre-installed Office works decent. But due to the fact that you are stuck with the Win 7.8, there is very little you can do with the phone (all the new apps and updates are for the Win 8 and newer OS versions). I gave the phone 3 stars because it server me well over the past 2 year, with battery holding up and no crashes at all. But I will not recommend this phone due to the fact that it can not update to the newer versions of WP OS.

  • The only problem is that it's windows

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This phone is the perfect phone; easy to use; personalised to suit you; and it survived 2 dips in a swimming pool and many falls. The problem I had was this phone is that it's a windows phone and I first got the phone when windows phones were pretty much unheard of so the apps were absolute basics and they aren't the same as android or iOS apps which means everyone's exploring all the new fun apps while your still waiting on windows basics. Maybe I'll try another lumia in a few years when windows have had time to sort something out but for a phone which is built on apps it was a bit of a disappointment and its just not worth the money waiting for.

  • Lacks most of the basic features

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This phone looks nice but it lacks a lot of basic features: It doesn't support folders to sort files, you can't plug it in as a removable drive to copy files (or even rename them). There is no WiFi calling feature (even though it has WiFi). The calendar needs an update (it doesn't allow for things like Every Tuesday till December, it only does Every Tuesday till forever). Also the reception is not very good. For example you can't put the phone between your shoulder and ear. Overall it could be a good phone if Nokia tried to improve the basic software. Or if T-mobile ever allowed Windows 7.8

    Windows Phone 7.5 Tango OS is awesome, plus 1.4GHz processor & 512MB of RAM and affordable price, Nokia Lumia 710 is just quietly brilliant!

  • An excellent, fluid and easy to use mid-range smartphone

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    I purchased this phone in July 2012. I've had it for some time now, and I can say it's a really good phone. I was excited to try the Windows Phone OS, because I had read positive reviews praising it. Here's my review: Pros: * This is a mid-range smartphone, but the OS is really fast, I was amazed because it never had any kind of lag like some Android phones in the same range do. * Windows Phone is truly beautiful, the live tiles are very easy to use and there's no need for a notification center like in Android or iOS. * With the Windows Phone 7.8 update, it's possible to resize the tiles with 3 possible sizes to choose which is very useful as you can save space, and it also has a wider variety of colors to personalize the phone. * You can set up your Microsoft, Nokia, Google and/or Yahoo! accounts and have them all integrated on the phone. * The People hub is a quick way to see the latest news in all your social networks and interact easily with your contacts. * Xbox Live is fully integrated with the phone and enhances the gaming experience. * Includes Nokia's high quality services like Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and Nokia Music. * It has SkyDrive built-in, so you can access your files on the cloud on your phone and computer and keep your life in sync. * The camera is really good, and Nokia provides additional apps so you can improve your photos. Cons: * Windows Phone Store is in process of expansion, so you don't have a variety of apps as wide as in Google Play or App Store. * The phone is not upgradeable to Windows Phone 8, although you have Windows Phone 7.8 which brings the resizable tiles, additional colors and Bing backgrounds for your lock screen. It's also incompatible with Windows Phone 8 apps, so you usually have to wait until a new app is developed separately for this version of Windows Phone. * Battery life is not as great as you would expect, you may need to charge it everyday. * It doesn't have a front-facing camera, which would've been nice to videochat via Skype. In general, I'm very satisfied with my phone. It may lack a few apps, but the Windows Phone Store is slowly growing and most apps arrive for both Windows Phone 8 and 7.8. Too bad that it doesn't have a front-facing camera, it really would've been a plus. Still, congratulations Nokia and Microsoft, you have made a really awesome device for a very accessible price!

    I was using Nokia c6 before using and I was fed up with it.. It frequently hangs and a slow mobile.. I thought I should never take any Nokia handsets.. But when I went to buy a new mobile to the showroom.. The shop guy told me about lumia 710.. I was really impressed by the features and thought to give an another try to Nokia.. And guess what im really happy with it.. Great experience when compared with Nokia c6.. I love windows mobiles now.. I recommend each and everyone of my friends to take windows mobiles that too only Nokia lumia's.. I didn't like the other companies windows mobiles.. :D :D

  • Good product

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    First of all, the quality of the plastics is very good, except for the back case, which is not as I expected. After almost one year of continuous use of the phone, I had to replace it due to the fact that it started to squeak when pressure applied to phone. Lucky me, multiple colors available, another plus. The quality of the photographs is very good, low light and decent high ISO values are handled easily and the final result, along with the freedom of manual exposure value setting, does not let down at all. Software-wise, I feel the lack of a rotation lock capability of the screen. As the description says, the processor is powerful enough for a regular user. On the other hand, there is a HUGE shortage of official apps in my country (Romania), or if available, they cannot be downloaded in this region. Nokia, keep up the good work!

  • A pain to set up and use.

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    Okay, the pros first. Decent camera, decent speed, decent price, not as many apps as the iphone or android, but plenty for most users. Cons: Hard to set up, would not sync properly with my calendar, instructions wrong or lacking altogether, had to create Windows Live account to use. I hated the fact that even though the phone uses Windows apps, the apps would not sync with my computer through a data cable. Instead, calendar and documents had to go through the Windows Live first, which added time and in some cases, one or two additional steps. The instructions for syncing my calendar did not work, and despite online searches, I was unable to find instructions that actually worked to allow me to automatically sync my phone calendar with my computer calendar. ("Sync calendar" was not an option in my phone's Windows Live account.) In order to sync my calendar, I had to first go online, manually sync Windows Live with my computer, then go onto my phone and manually sync the account with my phone. Unacceptable. I returned the phone.

    Great little phone for the money and I like the Windows OS, very fast and responsive. The phone is reliable and has never frozen once. The only negative is the battery life, unfortunately the battery life is extremely poor and under normal conditions will not see you through the day. I hope Nokia find a way to improve battery life as this would make this handset a real winner.

    Had some issues with the windows phone, so got another 710 to replace the one we have, yet when we want to move the apps and contacts we have on the existing phone it is not possible to do without an extreme hassle. If possible I would go back to a regular operation cell phone.

    This phone replaced an android phone that I had, after practically pulling my hair out trying to figure the darned thing out (I'm not a techie). Right out of the box, the Lumia 710 is a breeze to set up, use, download apps and in general adapt to my needs. Hasn't frozen, no dropped calls and battery life is quite a bit better than my Android phone. What's even better, I got it free from T Mobile.
