Nokia Lumia 710 review: Smack in the middle - read the full textNokia Lumia 710 has a tall task at hand. The second brainchild of the Nokia- Microsoft partnership is the budget-friendly option in the lineup. It will try to entice first time smartphone buyers, while battling the Windows Phone...

I guess the only way to wake Nokia up that window phone is a dead end, is when there file chapter 11 & Elop happily help MS bought Nokia at 1 euro.

Nokia Lumia is really pathetic when it comes to its battery life. I am highly disappointed, I really want to sue them in consumer court.

In Holland, on their biggest carrier... The 800 even outsells the Iphone 4S...

omputer sync is done with the desktop Zune application. It's the only way to transfer files directly between your computer and your Windows Phone - there's no Mass storage mode.

microsD is needed because u dont have 3g access or wifi all the time. u can't listen to music on the go on cloud. neither mp3 player see it on it library.

plus u probably have a crappy 1gb bandwith cap anyway.

The negative reviews are from android fanboys comparing $300 hardware with $700 hardware.

Despite many negative feedbacks from blogs and reviews. This handset will grow on you gradually than other handsets ,and look better than its flagship model 800

no need memory card, everything is on the cloud, and u friend will be able to access cloud ans share with you music.

memory card will die in the futur.only internal memory, and company will be selected by their "cloud" quality, size,and accessibility and speed.

guys u have to look not in 3 months, but in 6 months and more. the futur is the cloud.

android is history, so you fanboys better get used to the idea of reviewing Windows Phone handsets.

There's no way that the audio quality of Nokia's Lumia 710 are dissapointing unless there are defects in the audio components.

I once asked a Nokia Care Singapore staff in the VivoCity Nokia Care Centre that I wanted to test one of their of demo Lumia 710 units with my N8's headset and the audio quality is as same the Lumia 800* if not comparable. (I tested the Lumia 800 in the same place with the same staff's permission)

So GSMArena, replace your Lumia 710 first, then re-review it and you guys know what I'm talking about.

Some laughs at my suggestions but I keep advocating the Lumia's and I try to raise awareness on how unsafe and bad Android is. I hope that someday, we will see the implosion of Android, the rise of WP, and Nokia's 2nd golden age.
