Excerpt: The Nokia Lumia 610 is the fourth Windows Phone smartphone to arrive in the UK, following the Lumia 800 , Lumia 710 and more recently the Nokia Lumia 900 . The previous trio shared dual-core processors, but had differing designs, storage and screen technology.
Pros: Intuitive user interface, Range of colours, Nokia Drive and Mix radio, Great battery performance
Cons: No expandable storage, Limited memory can't run some apps, Overpriced at launch, Poor camera
Excerpt: Microsoft and Nokia's work on Windows Phone Tango devices, to lower device specification requirements, has led to the Lumia 610, a low-end handset primarily designed for emerging markets like China.
Pros: Low cost, Great battery life, Good design
Cons: Poor display, Lack of third party apps, 256MB of RAM restrictions, No 720p video recording
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 610 isn't going to appeal to anyone who wants or needs a high-end smartphone, it simply lacks the speed and the guts to compete against the likes of the iPhone 4S or Samsung Galaxy S3.
Summary: Nokia is looking to make a comeback in the smartphone market by pinning its hopes on Windows devices. Initially revealed at the Mobile World Congress this year, the Lumia 610 hit Indian shores in July. The Nokia Lumia 610 is the most affordable Windows device from the Finnish handset maker.
Excerpt: Design As we mentioned in our early hands-on review, the Lumia 610’s budget price tag is immediately reflected in its cheap plastic casing, which feels like it might chip and scuff from the lightest of tumbles.
Summary: The cheapest Windows Phone available, but does it sacrifice too much?
Pros: Low price, Strong battery life, Solid build, Great social networking, The price is of course the big selling point here, bringing the barrier for entry to the Windows Phone eco system lower than ever. The battery impressed us quite a bit too, easily lasting 24 hours with light-to-middling use. It...
Cons: Only 8GB of storage, Only 256MB of RAM, Some apps incompatible, Poor video camera, One of the concessions made to achieve the low price was to only have 256MB of RAM and this really hurts the handset, because some big ticket apps such as Skype won't work as a result. The Nokia Lumia 610 can also ...
Summary: The basics The Nokia Lumia 610 is very much the entry-level in the Nokia Lumia smartphone lineup coming as it does with a parred down processor and reduced storage space. However, it still has plenty to offer and at the right place should make a great first-time smartphone.
Pros: The Nokia Lumia 610 is based around a 3.7-inch touchscreen display that is bright enough in most lighting conditions to allow you to see what's happening. Available in an array of colours, the design is nicely curved and feels good in the hand. The backplate is plastic and comes off to allow you ...
Cons: We like the overall design of the Nokia Lumia 610 but we have to admit, the function buttons on the right-hand side feel a little small and fiddly. This was too when testing out the camera, with tapping the screen working out a better solution that struggling to push the button and not move the p...
Summary: Ob dem Lumia 610 allerdings ein langfristiger Verkaufserfolg beschieden sein wird, daran darf gezweifelt werden. Das hat in erster Linie nicht einmal mit den Eigenschaften des farbenfrohen Smartphones zu tun, sondern mit dem sogenannten Osborne-Effekt: Der tritt auf, wenn Vorabankündigungen neuer...
Pros: günstigster Einstieg, Display auch draußen gut lesbar, gute Verarbeitung, ausdauernde Akkuleistung, vollwertige Navigations-App an Bord
Cons: Speicher nicht erweiterbar, Arbeitsspeicher bremst Apps, schwacher Prozessor
Summary: Avant l’annonce du Lumia 610 au MWC 2012, nous avions déjà entendu la rumeur : une mise à jour de Windows Phone permettrait de proposer des terminaux avec des spécifications plus faibles que celles déjà visibles sur le marché.
Pros: Toute la force de Windows Phone pour un petit prix
Cons: Toute la force de Windows Phone pour un petit prix
