Nokia Lumia 710 vs. Samsung I8350 Omnia W: Battle of the affordable Windows Phones

 

This sure looks like a non-starter. Comparing Windows Phone handsets is about as constructive as deciding which is right and which is left in a pair of socks. HTC and, to a lesser extent, Samsung have been making sure though there's no shortage of...

If saving a bit of money now is important, the Lumia 710 is a good phone for the price.

Nokia Lumia 710 review: Smack in the middle

 

Nokia Lumia 710 has a tall task at hand. The second brainchild of the Nokia- Microsoft partnership is the budget-friendly option in the lineup. It will try to entice first time smartphone buyers, while battling the Windows Phone establishment in the...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support ; 3.7" 16M-color ClearBlack LCD capacitive touchscreen with WVGA resolution ; Scratch resistant Gorilla glass display cover ; 5 megapixel autofocus camera...

LCD display's quality is questionable ; No Flash or Silverlight support in browser ; No USB mass storage (file management and sync pass only through Zune) ; No video calls and no front-facing camera either ; No memory card slot ; microSIM card slot ;...

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.

Nokia Lumia 710 for T-Mobile review

 

It's not the Nokia / Microsoft lovechild we've all been patiently awaiting here in the states. No, it's the other Lumia -- the low-end one. And it's

Speedy 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor ; Vibrant 3.7-inch ClearBlack LCD display ; Lightweight, sturdy build ; Attractive price

Clumsy five megapixel rear camera

Nokia's first stateside Windows Phone Mango handset is an all around solid performer and for the budget price, it's a must-have.

Nokia Lumia 710 Review: Affordable, Solid Windows Phone

 

When I learned that Nokia would be teaming up with Microsoft for the next generation of Windows Phones, I was very excited. Nokia phones have a long-standing reputation for high quality, durability, and solid specs, but they've been held back by a...

Agile performance ; Inexpensive but still feature-rich

Middling camera ; Uneven call quality

The Nokia Lumia 710 might not be the most powerful phone, but its reliable performance, array of business and entertainment features and crisp display makes it a top choice for first time smartphone owners and those on a tight budget.

Nokia Lumia 710 (T-Mobile)

 

Nokia's first Windows Phone for the U.S. is solid, but underwhelming.

Fast processor. Free turn-by-turn navigation. Exclusive apps promised in future.

Flimsy screen material. Limited, non-expandable memory. No 4G or hotspot option.

Nokia's flagship, exclusive apps are Maps and Drive. Drive gives you free, spoken driving directions, which no other Windows phone has (all Android phones do, however). Nokia's maps, meanwhile, are much more attractive and readable than Bing Maps and...

Review: Nokia Lumia 710

 

Its specs are just "good enough." But with a $50 price point and the ability to pair it with a low-cost data plan from T-Mobile,...

Cheap. Comfortable size, shape and materials. Comes with enough built-in apps and services (ESPN, Netflix, The Weather Channel, My Account) to be convenient, but not overburdened. Comes in black or white

Call quality sounds slightly muddy, even though you sound very clear to people on the other end. Can only record video by pressing the hardware button. 8GB of storage, but not expandable — there’s no SD card slot

Nokia Lumia 710 for T‑Mobile review

 

It's been almost nine months since Nokia released a carrier-branded smartphone in the US, the Symbian-powered Astound for T-Mobile. That was before the company's sea change — it has come a long way...

Great call quality ; Low cost ; Colorful back panel options

Subpar LCD with bad viewing angles ; No internet sharing ; No front facing camera

A decent entry-level Windows Phone — but seriously, just wait

Nokia Lumia 710 (T-Mobile) review

 

Need a modern smartphone choice on T-Mobile but aren't willing to spend the hundreds of dollars usually required? Perhaps you should take a gander at Nokia's new $49.99 Lumia 710. With strong features for work and play, plus a 4G connection, it could...

Thanks to its Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS, Nokia's Lumia 710 provides plenty of power for both fun and productive uses. It has a smooth and engaging user interface, satisfying photo quality, and 720p HD video, all in a compact and affordable package.

The Lumia 710's all-plastic construction doesn't scream luxury and its small physical buttons are stiff and often tough to press. The handset also lacks a front-facing camera, so video chat is out of the question.

The $49.99 Nokia Lumia 710 is an excellent way to get the growing capabilities of a Windows Mango smartphone for a rock-bottom price. Though it isn't an Android superphone with a luscious AMOLED display, it's a practical device that covers all the...

Nokia Lumia 710 Review - T-Mobile's Nokia WP7

 

Yesterday we took a look at the flagship of Nokia's Lumia series - the Lumia 800. Today we're looking at its younger and more entry-level sibling, the Lumia 710. Though the specs are lighter weight and the device isn't a flagship, Nokia's expectations...

I'm not ready to say that I believe Microsoft will pull this off, but I'm willing to give Microsoft the benefit of the doubt. Microsoft has the ability to choose whether or not this race is already over.
