Last year Nokia introduced the Lumia 800, which was the first Windows Phone device. Now the Finnish company brought the second device on the same arena and it is named as Nokia Lumia 710. Those who think that the first Lumia handset was a bit costly they can opt for the second version. While you have to spend around £430 for SIM free Lumia 800, you can get Lumia 710 at around £300. This shows that the device is quite economical. However, one cannot deny that in terms of look and feel, Nokia Lumia 710 is cheaper than the predecessor is.
Nokia Lumia 710- Looks and Feels Cheaper
If you want to analyze the reason of why the handset feels cheaper, you have to notice the weight. Lumia 800 weighs 142g and the latest version is just 125.5g. However, it is definitely handy, but when it comes to the smartphones, too much of lightweight makes it feel quite unsubstantial in comparison to the competitors. On top of that, you will find that the screen is slightly recessed and the alternation from the phones front face to the sides feels somewhat pointed. There is a lack of consistency in the look, which is not the case with Lumia 800.
Where Nokia Lumia 710 Scores
It is not that Lumia 710 is behind its predecessor in every aspect. One of the biggest advantages of the handset is its replaceable battery. Many users of Nokia Lumia 800 feel that the battery does not last long. In such a situation, having a replaceable battery is definitely useful. Lumia 710 has removable rear cover, which makes it easy to replace battery. Furthermore, the removable cover adds up to the perkiness of the phone. The back covers are available in different colors such as white, black, yellow, fuchsia and cyan. The option for frontal colors is limited though as you can have the variety of only black and white.
Nokia Lumia 710- Power
The latest Lumia is powered by Mango OS, which is Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5. The processor of 1.4 GHz Scorpion and Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon chipset makes the combination quite powerful for the users. With the availability of HSDPA 14.4 Mbps/HSUPA 5.76 Mbps and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, the speed of internet connectivity is quite faster.
Nokia Lumia 710- Body and Display
The phone measures 119 x 62.4 x 12.5 mm and comes loaded with a 3.7 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen. The resolution of the screen is 480 x 800 pixels and it offers visibility of 16 million colors, which adds up to the vibrancy. Corning Gorilla Glass and Nokia ClearBlack display protects the display from scratches, finger spots, etc.
Nokia Lumia 710- Storage
If you think that 8 GB memory is enough for storage then you will be happy with Lumia 710. As there is no card slot, you cannot expand the memory further. If you ware happy with the internal memory capacity then go for it. With such a mixed bag of features, Nokia Lumia 710 can be a good choice for those who are looking for a budget Windows phone.
