Is there have a possibility that we can download Skype in lumia 610 soon? Thanks.
im not a techy person but i'd just like to know one thing: is lumia 610 capable of having an app such as Instagram?
9 main disadvantages in review session?
Kind of epic fails.. we want symbian and meego back, this wp things is epic fails..
learn from the history of windows in phone:
winmo inside o2: epic fails
winmo inside htc: epic fails
winmo inside samsung: epic fails
wp will have the same fate too
Anonymous, 14 Jun 2012looks better then the 800, you must be crazy. This phone isnt fast, next to the 710 you see ho... moreHmm... I guess looks are subjective.
I actually compared, touched, held, inspected the three Lumia models before deciding on the 610. The curve and overall design won me over. I must agree that the bright coloured version may not be appealing, but mine is the black & chrome version which look really cool to me.
Speed is again subjective. There are lags when opening certain applications, but overall functions are better than expected. Given the RAM and the processor - it performed wonderfully to me.
please gsmarena dont be bias on your opinions ...
i dont why windows phone has to catch up with windows phone we all know that WP is diferrent from other platforms
we all know that the other budget consious smartphone out there that this phone behaves better that the other cheap handsets out there
i hope that you also know that in windows phone very smooth interface and tolerable lags ...unlike droids out there
lets face the fact that if you want cuztomizations or to hack games windows phone is not for you
windows phone is the phone that delivers smooth user interface , integrated apps ,tolerable lags ,if u want to in and out every app in the simplest way but intuitive...
you havent heard windows phone suing apple and samsung its simply because the ideas of microsoft imparted in windows phone platform is truly original..(lets admit the integrations in windows phone comes first rather than in any other platfform)

want a boost? put android with dual core processor and 1gb ram. done.
NOKIA LUMIA 610
Yes. A user opinion by someone who bought, used and become very satisfied with the phone. I am quite surprised that many people have taken the RAM & processor limitation rather heavily. Why?
It performed wonderfully for me. As a phone and as a smartphone.
- Extremely good value for a phone. Got mine cheaper than the usual price at the time. Cheaper than most Samsung mid-range levels, yet feels more polished in terms of screen size offering, looks, performance and the experience of owning a WP gadget.
- Better build than expected for the price range. Honestly to me, it looks much better than the Lumia 710 or 800. Hold both side to side, almost bought myself a 710 but the curved edges, capacity buttons and minimal thickness won me. Nokia at it's best. Mine was the NFC version with chrome & black back cover. It look and felt more expensive that it's price. Dare I say that it's almost comparable to Galaxy S Advance in terms of outer physical appearance? The looks alone is value at its best.
- Fluid flow speed. Fast, in other word (again, a surprise when considering what the specs are telling). I hardly felt the inferiority of the processor because basic phone features runs just as you expect - at the touch of the screen. Things may get a bit slow when non native applications (not by Nokia or Microsoft) came into effect. You may experince a bit of lag when an application loads - but it goes back as normal when it is running.
- Long battery life when Battery Saver mode is activated. Very fast in reaching 100% capacity via socket plug (USB charging). My biggest worry is of how bad smartphones are when it comes to power. This one however, proved that you can be new and kept running for long. A single charge can last you about three days on standby mode. Battery saver mode basically turn off all background features (notifications, email fetch, facebook status update) - focussing on just the basic phone functions.
- Facebook integration is deep. Synchronising with contacts, calendars, chat with automated ease. You get events reminder on your lock screen. Pictures from facebook accounts can be synchronised with those on your photo album. No need to log in via browser of the Facebook app to post status - just do it on your contact page. Who's online is visibly seen. All automated if you like.
- Excellent connectivity: fast cellular connection, WiFi just connects without much hassle (and speedy), no dropped calls, good reception.
- Nokia Drive navigation runs impressively well. On the go turn-by-turn guide proved effectively fast after tested on a car drive. Offline maps are downloadable. Accurate GPS reading enables the app to remind you in a distance of 200 meters before a turn. This avoids last minute decison making. No lag. I dunno why the review said so.
- Multitasking is smooth. Though what it does is more like pausing/resuming non active applications when in the background.
- Loud speakers with crisp sound. Sound from the earphone output is not that bad. Can be even better if a dedicated equalizer software is used.
- Like you know, some apps like Skype & Angry Birds won'ts install due to the RAM limitation. So do a few more apps - but then again the number are not that large. Many apps can be installed from the Marketplace without problem. Honestly for me, a phone without a front facing camera like this already loses some of the relevance for a Skype experience.
- No memory card slot. 8 gb built in. No way to see how much space an application took up. No way to transfer files without third party support (or hack). Can be frustrating for new user.
- Bluetooth file transfer is not yet supported by this version of the WP OS
- No call blocking feature (WP 7.5 limitation)
- Micro SIM support only. Honestly, I don't see this as much a hassle. Many people have switched to using Micro SIM with the iPhones and did fine. Just a technological switch to me.
- Zune. The only way to manage your digital media collection (without resorting to hacks).
- No USB Mass Storage Support at launch (but a simple hack allows the phone to be mounted as a drive where you can drag & drop as usual! It's there but not implemented)
- No HD video playback (720p). I tried and the video player reported an error. However, it was able to play 360p mp4 files VERY SMOOTHLY - you can advance the video without experiencing lag. Depending on the quality of the video, it can look very sharp.
- Audible audio books is still not supported as of this time.
As you can see, most of the negative points deals more on the limitation of the current version of the Windows Phone OS.
Really I don't like WP OS because of much platform-wide limitations.
I still have Nokia Lumia 800 but really not happy, got to move on soon.
[deleted post]How exactly is this a budget android killer ? And what exactly does the video you linked show ? I've watch it and it's just a guy flipping the 610 menus, no comparison and no other phone to be seen. So how did him and you reach the conclusion that its a kiler ? Get real. I think even mid range WP phone would have a hard time beating super budget androids like Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro which are ultra fast.
clearly nokia is run by a bunch of insane people. Why ? Well lets see. Lumia 610 costs 280 euros and Lumia 710 costs 210 euros. And 710 beats 610 on almost everything. 710 has same res, clear black display, double ram > 512, gprs,edge classes 33 vs only 10 on 610, 14.4 hsdpa vs 7.2 on 610, 720p recording vs VGA, better CPU,1.4 vs 800, better GPU adreno 205 vs 200. And still 710 is only 210 euros, and 610 is 280. Elop is insane.
oh no, android win again, i plan to buy lumia 610 or xperia u, obviously android for u, all i want is u
RIp Nokia. Given the price you can get a much better phone. Someone has to remind them they are not majdt leaders jn the smartphone category . They have .tk do a lot better if they want to survive .
How is this phone rated 8.0+ in the voting results????
It is bulky (12mm)
No SD card
Small storage and RAM
Slow 800 MHz CPU
Average OS (so far)
At least apple and android fanbois have good products to be fanbois about. (i have owned apple, nokia and androids)
