Conclusion

The Nokia Lumia 710 is a solid, if a bit basic, smartphone. The Windows Phone 7.5 OS and its Metro UI are definitely a matter of taste — I can recognize that plenty do not love them like I do — but if you’re a fan of it, the this smartphones is a great way to get the full, most up-to-date experience with the platform.

Nokia Lumia 710 MenuAnd in terms of value, it’s tough to beat: it’s a 4G smartphone (granted, on T-Mobile’s sub-par network) that you can now get for as cheap as $40 with a mail-in rebate and a new two-year contract with T-Mobile.

Its specs are a little weak, what with the single-core processor, its meager and non-expandable 8 GB of onboard memory, and 512 MB of RAM. However, for entry-level users who don’t need a powerhouse phone but want to jump on the 4G bandwagon, the Nokia Lumia 710 is a good option for a reasonable price.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Great build
  • Windows Phone 7.5 OS is a much more refined experience than its predecessor

Cons:

  • Weak specs, including 8 GB of onboard storage and no memory card slot
  • 4G performance not very impressive
  • Poor battery life
