Nokia is on a crusade to get their name back on top with the help of Windows Phone. No doubt you’ve already heard about Nokia’s partnership with Microsoft’s new Windows Phone software.
The software is an amazing alternative to people getting tired of the Android – iOS battle already. It’s high time someone actually made a software capable being refreshing and engaging at the same time, not just for the sake of being different.
With BlackBerry effectively out of the game, Microsoft has moved in to takes its place in the Big Pantheon of smartphone software greats, and it shows they’re here to stay with the Windows Phone.
If you’re looking to sell your phone for an upgrade, or if you’re in a bind, then the Nokia Lumia 610 is a great phone for you.
The Lumia 610 has average build quality, which is expected for its price range.
The plastic body is very nice despite the materials used. As always, Nokia manages to make durable phones despite the price.
Regarding the shape, it looks very close to its more expensive sibling, the Lumia 710. Both feature a rectangular shape with smooth and rounded corners.
With the Lumia 610, there’s a small plastic bottom. At the back, you’ll find a removable cover and the 5.0 megapixel camera.
With a phone this cheap, don’t be surprised if the screen isn’t making use of AMOLED technology or Nokia’s other fancy technology.
Despite the standard LCD screen, there’s much to like about it. It measures 3.7 inches and you’ll find that there’s plenty of space for a lot of stuff such as watching movies and surfing the net.
The screen resolution is 480 x 800 which may be low, but perfect for the Windows Phone. Besides, nobody is complaining anyway.
The phone features the latest version of Windows Phone, which is 7.5 Mango. It’s very distinct software, which you will grow to like once you sell your phone.
It has Live Tiles that help increase productivity. Live Tiles allows you quick access to apps, contacts and other files right on the home screen without the need to navigate the interface.
Aside from that, you get plenty of stuff to like, such as high – quality apps for Windows Phone.
To list all the features of Mango here in this article will take too much space, so better check out their website instead for more info.
The phone is equipped with a 5.0 megapixel camera that takes nice pictures, but don’t expect it to be as good as the high – end cameras of Nokia.
It records in VGA, which is pretty low, but that’s expected anyway.
All in all, you’ll find that the camera is more than enough, given its price.
With stellar performance in terms of battery life, the Lumia 610 is a great phone to introduce you to the Windows Phone way of life.
