I have been using this phone for a year and a half and it is a pleasure to operate. If it were upgradable to windows 8, and had expandable storage i'd use it for another 3-5 years, but then, that kinda explains everything :P

This phone might have short battery lifespan. But you can enter the battery saver mode and only turn on the internet data when needed.

Even the screen only LCD unlike lumia 800, the display is still sharp and satisfying.

The camera is SIMPLE and beautiful.

As a windows phone first timer, this phone is perfect.

Somehow, it have flaws. The speaker is not loud and low quality, the vibration is weak, and no front camera.

if you wanted to check the clock, you can ONLY press the unlock button to light up the screen, no other button.

When i got my Lumia 710, i was rather pleased and really studied it thoroughly. uploading songs, games, emails, videos and other multimedia was easy and and the Lumia was doing well. after few days of using it i found the following faults of the Phone. here they are:
1. Text messages fonts are too small and when can not easily be read. there is no way to enlarge the text.
2. ringtones are low and if you are away from your phone you will not hear that you got a call or a text.
3. bluetooth doesn't work.
4. you can not send a message to multiple contacts at the same time.
5. Battery life is very short.
6. Vivration almost do not exist.
7. When texting, it automatically gives you an english word even you are typing a different language. there is no way to stop the automatic spell check.

This device is superb as a smartphone and like a predecessor of it, the Nokia 5800, it provides a great multimedia functionality.

No SMS repetitive sound alert or blinking light. No missed call repetitive sound alerts or blinking light.
Only the painful process of approaching ur phone and unlocking it to see if smone called or texted.
Lack of options for everything, minimalistic agenda.
Camera not enough resolutions available. Space available after purchasing it is 6GB not 8GB.
Tones and sounds are not loud enough , vibration is almost non existant. Its not mass storage, so forget about plug it in into ur laptop and search for ur photos. U have to use Zune (a pain) or Skydrive ( a simple email account). So those with no WiFi dont exist. Personalizing it is irritating and time consuming. Battery life is ridiculously short.
Web browsing and Nokia maps ( WiFi connected ) is the only positive point of this cell phone.
Hope Nokia starts building cell phones again, this is not a cell phone, it`s another MS buggy Windows platform.

Downloading large games , music ,videos , pictures to Nokia Lumia using Zune

To download or upload music , video , pictures , large games or apps , maps and so on on or from your Lumia you have to use the Zune program on your PC . Some above have alternative like skydrive or WiFi, maybe bluetooth (havent tried yet) , but 3G and Edge are for smaller files . Reason is that for large file that would cost you a lot to do it on 3G or edge mobile network and Nokia dont want you to spend on that . Well I guess here ..
Just download Zune on your PC (you can find the link on google) . You might have to log in a some point on your win live account xxx@live.com , the one you must create when your first use your phone , cant remember if necessary .
Once you have installed Zune , run it , connect your phone to your PC via the USB cable , and wait for your phone icon to appear bottom left on Zune screen . Go to setting to see the folders for video , photo or music , you can change those if you want . Then copy whatever you want to transfert say video file , to the video folder . Go to Collection/video on Zune you should see that video image or icon . Then drag that icon to the phone icon bottom left of the zune screen and wait for the video to load on your phone . Done .
Same deal for music , same for pictures .
For large games or some other large files you must initiate from the phone while connected to Zune . click on the game that could not load on mobile network , and it will load to your phone with your PC as gateway . Have tried those , on my Lumia 710 , so it works .
Good Luck
