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?
The Lumia 710 may be an entry-level WP7 smartphone, but this isn't really reflected in its core specification. Its single-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor is the same as the Lumia 800's, as is the 512MB RAM, but the Lumia 710 only gets half the amount of user storage at 8GB. This being Windows Phone 7, there's no memory card slot, either.
The Lumia 710 also only offers tri-band GSM rather than the 800's quad-band, but its 3G and Wi-Fi support is otherwise the same, as is its array of sensors.
One area where Nokia has cut back on the Lumia 710 is with the screen, but as we hinted at earlier, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. The Lumia 810 may have packed a brilliant, vibrant AMOLED display, but its underlying PenTile Matrix technology meant that its image quality was far below that expected from the 480 x 800 resolution.
