Good: Good value, smart, well built, o/s works well, good social media integration.
Bad: Poor camera, no WP8 upgrade, still limited apps, no memory card, hard to monitor use
Comment: A good little phone. Well built, bar some slightly spongy buttons. Main annoyance is still apps. There are plenty available covering most functions, but things like TV recorders or online HDDs still only offer IOS/Android. No BBC IPlayer, though solution regularly promised.
Good: Good photos and connectivity
Bad: Cant see phone numbers
Comment: I have always had Nokia in the past and thought the 710 would be a great introduction into the app world. However, if I have to relay a phone number to someone I cant even see the number and even the name is touch and go. There is no app to increase the size on the size of the main tiles which wasnt an issue to begin with. Everything else is fine, and easy to use just I find this to be an annoying issue . And yes I have looked in the settings and updated before anyone asks and no the option to increase isnt there
Good: Great value and affordable price.
Bad: Worst camera
Comment: Lower price without sacrificing any performance, it is worth to have.
Good: Fabulous value and feature set
Bad: Some may wish for more internal storage
Comment: The Lumia 710 is arguably one of the best value mobiles of 2012 and a great all rounder. The hardware is efficient and supports the slick Windows Phone OS very well. Considering it was nearly 50% less than the Lumia 800, whilst running the same hardware it deserves success.
Good: fast responsive screen , xbox live
Bad: not enough decent apps
Comment: Chuffed I got this phone had android last time ,like that too but slightly prefer this more anyway for £99 pay and go U can't go wtmrong
Bad: Terrible Battery life
Comment: Would never get one again,not everybody is by a power supply all the time
Good: stylish, fast, different
Bad: No good apps. Skype can't run in the background. Won't get WP8.
Comment: Great little phone, I prefer it over my old blackberry and Iphone. The only thing that really lets it down is the app support and it wont be getting windows phone 8. Not sure what the point of releasing these versions of the lumia if they weren't going to be supported.
Good: Plenty Options. For Price beats apple
Bad: Rubbish battery life even if only used as phone.
Comment: Unable to download sensible audible tone to indicate MESSAGE received.
Good: Simple OS
Bad: Battery life is less than one day !
Comment: Poor battery life makes this phone a drag.
Good: speed of apps is awesome, 1.4 processor breezes through anything required
Bad: no memory expansion
Comment: less apps than android but most of those are pretty poor anyway. Anything I have needed has been found on windowsphone marketplace so no issues as far as I am concerned.
I absolutely love this phone and would never go back to an android phone again
