android is history, so you fanboys better get used to the idea of reviewing Windows Phone handsets.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2012I can't believe that the audio quality of this phone is that bad. I bet it's a faulty unit or ... moreI agree with you too! Maybe the GSMArena team recieved a faulty Lumia 710 and dared not ask for a replacement.
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.
Sails, 21 Jan 2012I love it how people are up in arms about the front camera, but nobody ever uses it and on the... moreThat's what I do too. I recommend the Lumia 710, 800 or 900 to my friends. Some of them have the iPhone 4S, SGS 2 and the Galaxy Note. 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.
I can't believe that the audio quality of this phone is that bad. I bet it's a faulty unit or there's something really wrong with the test.
I am really really pissed off when people starts to comment that windows phone is a dead platform. Grrrrr. obviuosly they are referring to the old windows 6.5. People, you are looking at windows phone 7.5 mango. You ahould try the new OS before making a comment.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2012windows phone is a dead platform its never gotta be popular never gotta get marketshare, no... moreHey buddy ! be neutral while giving a comment. windows is growing,in market-share & app numbers increaments too.. just keep yourself updated :)
I will buy Nokia 701 instead of this windows phone crap! Symbian Belle is fantastic, Nokia just needs to produce bigger screens for Symbian!
I think it's a nice move to see from Nokia that they often choose not to manufacture in China or India
How can Nokia expect this phone to sell well with the Younger Generation,as the Top function on this phone is missing,as the youngsters love using Bluetooth to send an recieve photos an music between there friends phone,an no micro sd card slot lets this phone down as well,Mr Elop as got Nokia in a really bad situation now by choosing Windows,as it not even got no relationship with Symbian,Symbian an Android are closer related,but Mr Elop was just more bothered about helping Microsoft an as not thought about Improving Nokia,so bye bye Nokia i have got the Samsung Galaxy S2 which is miles better than any Lumia phone produced
I love it how people are up in arms about the front camera, but nobody ever uses it and on the phones that have a front facing camera the quality is so terrible you can barely recognize the person.
Personally I think Lumia 710 is a phone I can easily recommend to people. WP7 keeps things simple, the HW is very powerful for the price, I trust in Nokia quality and it will have lot less compability / update / etc. issues than Androids in the same price range.
windows phone is a dead platform its never gotta be popular never gotta get marketshare,
nokia is on suicide mode trying to turn a douche frog into a prince.
even if u change the exterior still a douchebag
Eagerly awaiting its sister the Nokia 603, sporting mass storage, microSD slot up to 32GB and NFC + should have better battery life with Symbian belle optimized ...
I'm very disappointed with the audio quality of Lumias. Windows Phone is a good OS...but some important features are missing(file manager, microSD support).
I was waiting for the GSMArena review of the Lumia 710...after the results of audio quality test, it has become much more easier for me to decide.
I'm going to buy a 701!
And, Android sucks!
Omar-Nokia, 20 Jan 2012gsmarena you forgot that this phone costs 50$ if u purchase it from t-mobile hey man they arent saying on contract
theyre saying 50$ sim free
You people amaze me, is it so hard to understand that this is a low budget phone meant to familiarize and saturate the masses with wp7? You cant expect it to come with multicore glory, samoled screen, 12mp cam and be priced cheaply. Have you not seen the high end lumia 900and 800? Why are you talking about nokia not making good phones, with the knowledge of higher end models being released in tandem with this? Are you just finding a means to 'hate'on nokia?
AnonD-252, 20 Jan 2012"No USB mass storage (file management and sync pass only through Zune)" = No buy!^ share the same opinion
Ruhul, 20 Jan 2012seriously gsmarena, do you really think its display is that bad to place it under disadvantage?I don't get it either. Reading the review they don't seen disapointed with the display.
the best & cheapest wp for the masses, thats why stop expecting quad core & gagilion ram for this.
