Detailed Review

Design:

The Nokia Lumia 610 is simple Windows phone priced at 12,999. Built with plastic body the dimensions of the phone are 119 mm, 62 mm and 12 mm in height, width and thickness. It weights 132 gm. Lumia 610 has Portrait display orientation with 3.7 inch display. The phone is available in Black, Cyan and Magenta colours. On top of the device is a 3.5 mm earjack, a micro USB/Charging port and a secondary microphone pinhole. on the right side, it has three hard keys- dedicated Camera key,  Power/Lock Key and volume control key. The left and the bottom sides are left bare. The plastic material of its body is new and not that worth.

    

Interface/OS:

The Lumia 610 works on windows platform and has windows phone 7.5 mango operating system. The device comes with 800 MHz ARM Cortex A-9 processor and 256 MB of RAM. The windows 7.5 mango operating system runs perfectly fine on this device but many applications do not work because of slower RAM.

Features:

The home screen or the start menu of the Lumia 610 is vertically arranged with live tiles in Mono Block Pattern. One can set his own personalized tiles on home screen  like Facebook, messaging, call alerts, e-mail and etc. It gives one live updates on these tiles as well. Lumia 610 has people hub inherited, which includes Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, Chat and SMS. For internet access one get Bling, Internet Explorer 9, HTML, and Wi-Fi. For navigation one has Bling Maps and Nokia Maps in Lumia 610 and for GPS it has A-GPS in built. Filled with all basic and new home screen features Nokia has retained its brand image with Lumia 610 but fell short with only 256 RAM.

 

Camera:

The Nokia Lumia 610 has a 5 megapixels main camera with auto focus and LED flash light that gives perfect resolution to pictures. One gets 4X digital Zoom to closely check images and it supports JPEG and Exif image formats to be compatible with all system formats. And no doubt, Nokia has built their image for delivering good quality cameras and Lumia 610 is not an exception. The Quality you get with this phone is really amazing. The 5 MP camera shoots video in 720 pixels resolution and the outcome is great.

Audio/Video:

The Audio quality of Lumia 610 is clean and clear. But when on loudspeaker mode, the voice is clear but sounds thick. With access to almost all music formats it has media player supporting both audio and video hub. The music section in the media player consists of albums, songs, playlists, genres and artists. And to store all downloaded audios and videos there is  Podcast section under music folder. With the Lumia 610 you get 3.5 mm universal handset WH – 208 with which you can tune in to FM too if want to enjoy latest tracks and record to your playlist also. The media player plays all your videos, be it downloaded or recorded or even live browsed video. It gives you 720 pixels sharp resolution that fits best with 3.7 inches screen size. But it lacks HD trend that gives edge to its competitors.

Memory:

The Lumia 610 provides only 8GB of inbuilt memory with no micro SD card slot. So, one will have to be satisfied with this limited space. Though, it is enough to save one good number of images, few small size videos and data.

Battery:

The Nokia Lumia 610 offers one 1300 mAh BP – 3L battery which works just OK with the phone, The Talk time on 2G is 10 hours and up to 9 hours on 3G, whereas the Stand By time is up to 700 hours on 3G and up to 650 hours on 2G.

Conclusion:

The Lumia 610 of Nokia with this price range has a couple of restrictions like, the memory storage is limited to only 8 GB and the camera is without HD video resolution. But apart from these drawbacks Nokia Lumia 610 has made its presence well noticed. Strong 1.4 GHz Qualcomm processor will assure one fast processing and downloading. The 5 MP camera is amazing as it gives sharp and clear images even in less light or indoor shoot. But with 256 MB of RAM one will have to wait a bit to switch to another programme or apps instead of moving quickly on android. The 7.5 mango Windows operating system is good and fits best in this phone. Overall, we give this phone a 3 star rating.
