Nokia Lumia 610 Review

 

The Lumia 610 is an interesting entry into the Windows Phone family. Microsoft lowered the barrier to entry with an update to the OS, dubbed Tango/Refresh, allowing handsets with lesser specifications into the fray. The Lumia 610 is the first shipping...

If the price of the Lumia 610 was a little lower, then maybe we could look past its transgressions and recommend it as the simple point of entry into the smartphone world it’s designed to be. Unfortunately, that’s not the case thanks to the current...

Windows Phone on the cheap ; Great battery life

Lack of memory will rule out some apps ; Camera only barely gets the job done ; Terrible web browsing except on mobile sites ; You can get the Lumia 710 for not much extra

Despite its many flaws, the Lumia 610 serves up a lovely dish of Windows Phone for a good price. Just don't get it if you're into web browsing or photography.

Nokia Lumia 610 review: Basement window

 

According to recent estimates Nokia's smartphone sales could really use a boost. The Finns are putting most of their hopes on the WP flagship Lumia 900 and the Symbian 808 PureView cameraphone, but the one we're about to review might come in quite...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support ; 3.7" 65K-color LCD capacitive touchscreen of WVGA resolution ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, VGA video @30fps ; Windows Phone 7.5 OS...

Some apps are incompatible due to low RAM ; No Flash or Silverlight support in browser ; No USB mass storage (Zune-only file management and sync) ; No video calls and no front-facing camera ; No memory card slot ; microSIM card slot ; No native...

Making Windows Phone more accessible was one of the goals Nokia set out to achieve when the deal with Microsoft was sealed. Well, it took the Finns only five months after the release of their first Microsoft-powered smartphones, to come up with the...

Microsoft and Nokia's work on Windows Phone Tango devices, to lower device specification requirements, has led to the Lumia 610, a low-end handset primarily designed for emerging markets like China. Although it will be available in a number of other...

Low cost ; Great battery life ; Good design

Poor display ; Lack of third party apps ; 256MB of RAM restrictions ; No 720p video recording

A budget handset for those new to smartphones

Expert review by:

Nokia Lumia 610

 

Nokia's Lumia 610 is designed to be the one of the lowest-cost Windows Phones yet; if it comes to the U.S., I expect it to be free with contract.

Least expensive Windows Phone yet

Slower than other Windows Phones. Lacks some Mango features, including multitasking

Nokia Lumia 610 Review

 

Here came MWC 2012 and the Nokia Lumia 610 was unveiled – an inexpensive representative of the Windows Phone breed. The modest internals are the cause for the device's price advantage. The processor inside it is a 800MHz single-core accompanied by the...

Affordable Windows Phone ; Free offline GPS navigation

Performance issues are common ; Some apps do not run

The Nokia Lumia 610 has both its strengths and weaknesses. On one hand, you should be able to get one for about $250, as long as you do some digging around, which makes it a decent entry-level offering. On the other, you will have to accept the...

Nokia Lumia 610 review

 

We know the Nokia Lumia 610 is one of the more affordable Windows Phone handsets in the market today, but is it really worth? Well, it is. And it isn't. Confused? Read on as I explain.

Surprisingly durable ; Nokia Drive is a heaven sent ; Reasonably priced

512MB RAM limits the apps you can download ; Not upgradeable to Windows Phone 8

This is where the Lumia 610 enters the picture. It fills your need for Windows Phone without breaking the bank.
