Nokia Lumia 810 hands on review: we get a hold of the latest Windows 8 phone

gearburn.com
8 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Here at MobileCon 2012 , we got to put our hands on T-Mobile’s exclusive Windows phone, the upcoming Nokia Lumia 810. Unfortunately, holding this handsome new handset was about all we were allowed to do. The smartphone version of the Windows 8 OS is still very hush-hush, and demo units we saw wouldn’t even turn on.

Nokia Lumia 810 review: Capable, but homely

CNET
15 January 2013
  • Summary: The Nokia Lumia 810 makes for a practical smartphone choice, but if you're looking for something thin and light, the HTC Windows Phone 8X is one better option.
  • Pros: Nokia's Lumia 810 has decent call quality and a nice helping of extra software that differentiates it from other Windows phones. It's also one of the first Windows phones with external storage.
  • Cons: This bulky smartphone has an uninspiring build and is more expensive than AT&T's higher-end Lumia 920.

  • Excerpt: The Nokia Lumia 810 on T-Mobile may be less flashy and good looking than the HTC 8X , but it carries some serious appeal beyond its lower price tag. The Windows Phone 8 smartphone launched at $150 with contract, but is already down to $99 on the T-Mobile US website. The blocky black rectangle won't win prizes for looks or lightness but it does offer a removable battery, a microSD card slot and Nokia's strong Maps and navigation solution with free spoken directions.
  • Pros: Fast, affordable, great camera, has microSD card slot.
  • Cons: Bland design, relatively low resolution display- though it's a nice looking screen.

Nokia Lumia 810 review: Back in black

GSM Arena
14 December 2012
  • Conclusion: In their effort to find a way around the AT&T exclusivity on the Nokia Lumia 820, the company's engineers have ended up with an arguably better device in the face of the Lumia 810. The T-Mobile exclusive smartphone benefits greatly from the larger battery, while maintaining everything we liked about its Lumia 820 sibling. This includes the capable chipset, decent camera, and a display which makes Windows Phone OS even more enjoyable.
  • Pros: Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, Quad-band 3G with 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support, 4.3" 16M-color ClearBlack AMOLED display with WVGA resolution, 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, 1080p@30fps video recording, 720p front-facing camera, Windows Phone 8 OS, 1.5GHz dual-core Krait CPU, Adreno 225 GPU, Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset, 1GB of RAM, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS support, 8GB of inbuilt storage, expandable t...
  • Cons: App catalog falls short of Android and iOS, No system-wide file manager, No lockscreen shortcuts, Some might argue that design is a bit dull, Price on a contract is a bit high

Nokia Lumia 810 Review

Digitaltrends
15 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Despite the less than elegant design, the $150 Nokia Lumia 810 is a good Windows Phone 8 device that offers speedy performance, a nice display, and a decent camera. For a budget phone, it has many great attributes. However, if you’re not a T-Mobile customer, this is not a device that entice you to switch. For $50 ($100 less), you can get the same phone with better design elements on Verizon Wireless or AT&T.
  • Pros: Beautiful display, Speedy performance, Good call quality, Hardware shutter button
  • Cons: Bulky, inelegant design, More expensive than other comparable Windows Phone 8 devices, Low resolution display, Uninspiring camera

Nokia Lumia 810 (T-Mobile) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
14 November 2012
  • Summary: The $149 Nokia Lumia 810 gives T-Mobile customers clamoring for a Windows Phone some appetizing features, such as an AMOLED screen that's great for enjoying photos and videos, a sturdy build and Nokia-exclusive features such as Nokia Music and Nokia Drive. And while the camera itself isn't great, we do like the Camera Lens apps that come with the 810.

13 November 2012
  • Conclusion: On the surface, there’s nothing cool or hip looking with the Nokia Lumia 810 , which is a shame considering it’s a Lumia device, but yet, it’s lacking any of the distinct design cues to make it a part of the family. However, once you’re able to overlook its boring design and discover its inner beauty, the Lumia 810 really shines as an entry-level smartphone.
  • Pros: Snappy performance, Good low lighting camera performance, Same WP8 experience as the Lumia 920
  • Cons: Ugly and boring design, Speaker quality is sharp & irritating

Nokia Lumia 810 Review

SlashGear
12 November 2012
  • Conclusion: In the end, Nokia has created another real winner for the Windows Phone 8 universe as a whole. The Nokia Lumia 920 may be just that little bit better with a slightly larger display and loud body, but the 810 takes care of the user who doesn't want to take a monster out of their pocket every time they need to make a call. This is the business person's Windows Phone 8 smartphone.
