Summary: The Nokia Lumia 710 is a great entry-level smartphone. It has excellent hardware, is tough and reliable.
Windows Phone 7.5 didn’t disappoint us. Several features are obviously “inspired” by the iOS present on Apple’s iPhone, which is not a problem for the user. Usage is easy and intuitive, and installing (and uninstalling) applications and games is also quite easy.

Excerpt: We'll likely see additional Nokia Windows Phone announcements at CES 2012 , but for now, Nokia is making waves in the US market with the Nokia Lumia 710 .

Summary: So, let's be honest. When it comes to Windows Phone handsets from Nokia, the device everyone really wants is the Lumia 800 or even the 900 . It was kind of a letdown for T-Mobile customers when they heard that the Lumia 710 was their only option. However, after testing out the phone, I can say that there's really nothing to be disappointed about. The build quality is excellent, the display is crisp and rich, and Windows Phone is as smooth and elegant as ever.
Summary: Nokia Lumia 710 is a budget follow-up to its first Windows Phone 7 handset, the Nokia Lumia 800. It’s very slightly larger than the 800 in all dimensions, has the same Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) operating system and 3.7in 480×800 display, but the screen is TFT rather than AMOLED, the camera is a 5 rather than 8-megapixel version and it has 8GB rather than 16GB of storage. The 1.4GHz single-core processor is identical.Nokia Lumia 710 Review.
Pros: Removable battery, Intuitive user interface, Nokia apps, Integration with Xbox Live, Cloud-based backup
Cons: Poor battery life, Screen, camera and internal storage are downgraded from Lumia 800, No front-facing camera

Pros: Very comfy to hold and grip, upcoming back-plates will make the device more customizable and fun, performs very well, sharp bright display, AMAZING battery life, Windows Phone 7.5 is awesome – yes, we said it!
Cons: Not the most exciting design, 8GB of built-in storage is on the small size – especially considering that it’s not expandable via microSD, why must they insist on using a microSIM, dedicated key for Windows UI keys is annoying to operate, device is a bit of a grease magnet
Conclusion: The Lumia 710 isn’t as exciting as its big brother, the Lumia 800. Nokia announced a flagship device that is, in many ways, a game changer for the company moving forward. And yet even still, T-Mobile decided to launch the company’s lower end device, which surely won’t turn as many heads. Worse, it decided to launch the phone without a wide color selection that could have made the device stand out more in public.
Conclusion: The Nokia Lumia 710 is great phone that offers fantastic value for everyday users and those who want to get to grips with the Windows Phone OS. It’s not as nicely designed or flashy as the Nokia Lumia 800 but it’s not supposed to be. It’s the more workmanlike, gets-the-job done version of it’s flashier, more enticing sibling. That said general performance of the Lumia 710 is on par with that of the Nokia Lumia 800.
Pros: Compact and comfortable to hold, Built-in sat-nav and music features, Good price
Cons: Limited internal memory, Not much cheaper than Lumia 800, Not as many apps available for Windows Phone
