I experienced this thing in action from a demo unit that I handled, and I must say that it's awesome!
People, don't underestimate its performance because of its specs. It's so smooth that you would't think that it has a mere 256 MB of RAM, and a processor that's only 800 mHz. It's really smooth. And in terms of design, imho, it is more beautiful than the Lumia 710. I wouldn't buy this tho. Why? Because the N9 and the Lumia 900/800 exist =)) But I would recommend this to people who want a good smartphone, but are not willing to spend big bucks on it. Peace y'all! :D
Philippines was the first country in Asia to receive the Lumia series. Was able to test the Lumia 610.
Screen resolution is superb
Windows OS was very cool! (so sick of Android)
Windows OS transitions were all very cool and fluid, nice job for Nokia
5MP camera with LED flash (exceptional quality)
Corning Gorilla protected glass
The screen sensor is can't quite recognize very subtle fingertip touch... quite a concern
design was quite bulky and huge...
i did not quite like the design of its back... quite boring...
Overall, the phone was promising! for those who is sick of Android OS... switching to WP is a clever choice!
bear in mind the windows phone like symbian doesn't require too much processing power due to its balance hardware and os not like android. if Lucia 610 runs on android then it requires least 1Hz of processor and least 512mb ram. do you ever think that ics upgrade to android can run at 800 mhz with only 256 ram, i think it will not.
Galaxy y is n0t better than lumia 610 becuz! 33% apps can play fr0m andriod market! And small very p0or and ugly camera! N0t hd cam!Mhard to type!
Lumia is better than galaxy becuse! 3.7 touch screen! Can play ALL APPS IN WIND0WS MARKET! 5mp cam. HD VIDE0 RECORD! Easy to type! Nfc in the other lumia 610 nfc.
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2012lumia phones got free voice guided navigation,what about samsung,do theyAre nokia navigation really offline? Google maps ask data conection.
On android market i find really only one voice navigation for free - "satnav", where you can find POI without internet conection.
Just bought this phone for 10500 pesos. It's a good starter windows phone. It stutters sometimes but still very usable.
when it comes to high end smartphones, probably android and apple have a slight edge as compared to the lumia range due to their longer presence in the market. But when we are considering a mid range device like this one, windows sure has an edge over android. They give better hardware and more features at the price. Android on the other hand does a lot of cutting corners in their lower devices. Galaxy y for eg has a pathetic resolution and only 33 percent apps work on it
