Nokia Lumia 510 review: Down a gear

 

With things starting to look up financially and amid rumors of a successor to the Lumia flagship, the Finns shift down to speed up as they try to get one last lap out of the old Windows Phone generation. The Nokia Lumia 510 is old hardware running new...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4.0" 65K-color TFT capacitive touchscreen of WVGA resolution ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera, VGA video recording ; Windows Phone 7.8 OS ; Resizable tiles...

LCD display of questionable quality ; Some apps incompatible due to low RAM (Can't run Skype, no HD video) ; No USB mass storage (Zune only file management and sync) ; No video calls and no front-facing camera either ; No memory card slot ; No native...

Nokia Lumia 510 Review

 

Nokia Lumia 510 is the rock bottom price point for a Windows Phone Lumia, starting in the sub-$200 without a contract, and available in various flashy colors. The price range and color scheme indicate that it is geared towards emerging economies and...

Good picture quality ; Free voice-guided navigation ; Well built, pleasant to hold and look at chassis

Just 4 GB of storage with no memory card slot ; Some apps won't run with 256 MB of RAM ; Phone's microphone relays voices a tad distorted

There are no overly weak points in the Lumia 510 performance, and Nokia has even managed to create an above average looking and feeling 4” handset for its sub-$200 price point without a contract.

Nokia Lumia 510: Ultra Entry Level Windows Phone

 

With the Nokia Lumia 510, Nokia brings down the price (SRP P7,300) and compromises the specs and the tactile feel of its most affordable Windows Phone. The result is that the Lumia 510 clearly shares some of the physical attributes of the higher end...

There’s this fine line between careful cheap and brazen cheap. The Nokia Lumia 510 fits the former. You feel that there’s just enough of the phone, on the phone, inside it, to make it look and feel maybe Okay. No one’s asking for grand-premium-smug...

Nokia Lumia 510 Review

 

When Nokia launched their Windows Phone 7 lineup, they had the high-end Lumia 900, mid-range Lumia 800, and the lower mid-range Lumia 710 all available....

Affordable ; Solid Build Quality ; Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and whatever else Nokia brings ; col_1_4 ; col_1_4 style="box border box_yellow

Screen’s a bit dull ; No front facing camera ; Very average camera ; Dated hardware means some apps wont run ; Some lag and Frame rate drops (though much less than a similarly priced Android) ; No LED Flash ; No MicroSD Card slot ; col_1_4 ; col_1_4...

Recently bought a Lumia 800 and I can say that it’s the best phone I had ever used. But, this 510 seems good enough with touch keys and a bit larger display.
