Nokia Lumia 610


Nokia's Lumia 610 is the most affordable device in the Windows Phone OS running Lumia range, but can it lure users away from Android?

Good-looking design; equally eye-catching mobile platform look and feel; onboard Microsoft Office hub; capable snapper; added camera functionality via Camera Extras and Creative Suite apps; Mix Radio and Nokia Drive apps work very well; and SkyDrive cloud

A bit pricey; not as snappy as Lumia kin; not all the Windows Phone OS apps work with this device; VGA video recording instead of HD-Ready; and can't be updated to WP8.

Nokia Lumia 610 Review


This is a nicely designed Windows phone at a budget price, and offers a good way to surf the net, keep in touch and watch the odd film. However, if you want to play games or run apps, the Lumia 610 is not powerful enough and the online store is limited.

Crisp, colourful display; looks better than the Lumia 710; Windows Phone is easy to use

Performance is limited; Lack of apps; battery life mediocre

If you want a smartphone with plenty of features, good social networking facilities, and a decent snapper, then there’s plenty to recommend the Lumia 610. It has a sharp display for watching films and surfing the net, but it is limited when it comes to...

Nokia Lumia 610 review


Nokia and Microsoft have realised Windows Phone needs to cater for the entire and mobile market. This is why we have seen a number of Series 40 devices in the form of the Asha range, and a slow release of Windows Phones with decreasing prices.

Ergonomic design, Internet tethering, Relatively fast user-interface

Some tasks really slow it down, Low memory means some apps won't work, Not quite budget-friendly enough

The Nokia Lumia 610 is an excellent way to get into Windows Phone for under £200, but don't expect quite the same performance as the pricier Lumia 800s or the same inspiring build quality

Nokia Lumia 610: Hands-on


We first saw the Nokia Lumia 610 at Mobile World Congress 2012 and it made a decent first impression. But now we have the device for as long as we want, we decided to give it a more in-depth preview before the full review.

Least expensive Windows Phone yet.

Slower than other Windows Phones. Lacks some Mango features, including multitasking.

Nokia Lumia 610 Review, Touchscreen Mobile, Features


Nokia Lumia 610 is the new next generation smartphone from the Finnish Mobile Developer. This latest phone boasts ample of advanced features and some never-seen before applications.

• MicroSIM card support ; • SMS, MMS, Email, Push Email, IM messaging ; • Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic ; • GPS with A-GPS support ; • Video/photo editor ; • Document viewer ; • Predictive text input ; • Bluetooth with A2DP, EDR ;...

• No microSD card slot ; • Absence of secondary camera ; • Low processing capability ; • lack of Java support ; • No Flash support in browser ; • Only 8GB internal storage

Though the Nokia Lumia 610 technical specification is below par when compared to similar products, the device does justice to its Nokia Lumia 610 price in India.

Nokia Lumia 610 - Most Affordable Windows Phone Yet


The Lumia 610 is Nokia's most affordable Windows Phone designed to penetrate the entry level market. With lower hardware requirements for Windows Phone 7.5 Tango, can the budget-friendly Lumia 610 gain some ground against mass market Android devices?...

Very affordable price ; Decent overall performance ; Good handling

Can't tackle certain taxing video codecs ; Limited processing and RAM headroom ; Certain taxing apps unable to install ; Limited storage + not expandable

Microsoft's strategy in optimizing its Windows Phone OS on devices with lower hardware components paid off and Nokia is nimble enough to grab hold of the opportunity to pull off a decent device such as the Lumia 610.
