Nokia Lumia 610 review

 

The cheapest Windows Phone available, but does it sacrifice too much?

Low price ; Strong battery life ; Solid build ; Great social networking

Only 8GB of storage ; Only 256MB of RAM ; Some apps incompatible ; Poor video camera

Updated: We've taken another look at the Lumia 610, with a new price drop making it much cheaper - but does it make it better than the still-cheaper Nokia Lumia 710?

Nokia Lumia 610 - Pocket-lint

 

As a budget handset this offers plenty beyond Android's entry level offerings, but the apps choice still doesn't match the power of Apple

Cheap, nippy, easy to use, replaceable battery, replaceable back cover

Not all apps run on the phone, Windows Phone is like Marmite - you'll either love it or hate it

The Lumia 610 offers a very user friendly experience for the first-time smartphone user.

A Windows Phone mobile that's available for under £170.

Windows Phone looks good, Neat design, Good social networking integration

Nokia Lumia 610 review

 

Nokia has mounted all of the Lumia 610's physical keys on the right side of the device. There's a volume rocker, a small power/lock button and the Microsoft-required dedicated camera key. The volume and lock buttons are well positioned and provide good...

Nokia's Lumia 610 may have a cheap price tag but it feels anything but that. This is a very well built smartphone that offers a slick user experience, but its low RAM results in some annoying limitations.

Nokia Lumia 610 review

 

After the mid-range Lumia 710 and Lumia 800, closely followed by the big-screen Lumia 900, we finally have Nokia's budget Windows Phone 7 handset; the cheap-as-chips Lumia 610. This is just £180 SIM-free or free on a £13.50-per-month contract, which...

Compromised, but beautifully made and stylish for the price

Nokia Lumia 610

 

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...

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; can’t be updated to WP8

Nokia’s Lumia 610 features a good looking design, easy to use mobile platform and a lot of useful apps such as Nokia Drive and Mix Radio. If you are in the market for a device at the lower-end of the smartphone budget spectrum and you are not a fan of...

Nokia Lumia 610 Review

 

It’s hard to imagine any serious adult plunking down the money for this phone as a primary mobile device for them self. But it’s easy to see parents doing so in order to provide their children with a smartphone. The Lumia 610 is a great vehicle to get...
