Nokia Lumia 710 review

Julian Prokaza wasn’t overly impressed with Nokia’s first attempt at a Windows Phone 7 smartphone, so will the new entry-level Lumia 710 fare any better than the mid-range Lumia 800?

Nokia is clearly following a particular design philosophy for its Lumia range and although the entry-level Lumia 710 has a more traditional smartphone construction than the mid-range Lumia 800, the two are still obviously related.

That back cover is also removable, as is the battery beneath it, which should make this an appealing Windows Phone 7 smartphone for anyone who's away from mains power for long spells.

The Lumia 710's 1300mAh battery is marginally smaller than the Lumia 800's, but despite both smartphones having the same processor, this made little difference to battery life in our tests. With the WP Bench battery benchmark, which keeps the screen on and hammers the processor, the Lumia 710 lasted for two hours and 20 minutes that's only 10 minutes less than the Lumia 800's time.
