Nokia Lumia 710: First Impressions

A new entrant to the Nokia Windows phone array is the Nokia Lumia 710, a budget option introduced by Nokia. Coming after the Nokia Lumia 800, this device also promises interesting features at an affordable price. But does it live up to expectations? Here’s taking a closer look:

Design and Quality

Nokia Lumia 710 will probably have a greater appeal for the young generation, due to the funky colored back panels that can be attached to the device. This smartphone has a plastic build and fits into the hand easily. The front of this device is dominated by a 3.7″ capacitive touchscreen having 480×800 pixel resolution. Nokia boasts of a ClearBlack screen with anti-glare properties, so that screen visibility outdoors is perfect. Below the screen there is a long slim bar containing three physical buttons: Search, Back and Windows. Above the screen there is a proximity sensor. While the volume rocker and camera key are located on the side of the Nokia Lumia 710, the top of this device contains the 3.5mm headset jack and power button. The rear of this device contains the camera lens and speaker grille.

Specifications

Nokia Lumia 710 measures 4.6″×2.4″×0.4″ and weighs 4.4 ounces. This smartphone runs on a single–core 1400MHz Qualcomm processor. It has a mass memory of 8GB and RAM 512MB. There is no support for memory extension through microSD cards.

Features

Nokia Lumia 710 is a Windows Phone 7.5 Mango device. Along with Microsoft’s apps, there are some apps by Nokia such as Nokia Music with Mix Radio and Nokia Drive(offering voice navigation). Functions are performed fast on this device and users can easily shuttle between the homescreens. Apps are shown as large tiles, with some of them getting automatically updated. Users can customize what to place where. Connectivity options include Bluetooth and WiFi. Access to the internet is smooth from this device, with the pinch-to-zoom feature helping in getting a closer look. It is too early to state whether this device will be able to heavily stream information, as Nokia is trying to gear its users for, but so far things seem okay.

Camera

Nokia Lumia sports a 5MP camera lens at the back of the device. The camera contains various features such as geo-tagging, blur reduction, exposure compensation and so on. While the physical camera key is easy to use, image quality is average.

Battery

Nokia Lumia 710 has a rated talktime of 7.6 hours and a standby time of 400 hours.

While Nokia Lumia 710 does not come with impressive specifications, it does offer a lot of standard functions to users. For those who are thinking of a budget-friendly option, this smartphone may be considered.
