Our Verdict

For under £130, it"s a decent phone - but we can"t recommover it over the cheaper-and-better Lumia 710.

Based on physical impressions, it isn"t likely khổng lồ stvà out in a crowd, with a plastic toàn thân & a dinky 3.7-inch 800 x 480 TFT screen. The sides have sầu a metallic gleam to lớn them but it"s never likely to be mistaken for real metal, và the illusion is lost altogether once you actually hold the phone, which feels plastic through and through.



It"s not flimsy, though, with a reassuringly sturdy baông chồng cover và a generally solid feel. At 131.5g, it weighs about what you"d expect for a phone of its kích thước, which is lớn say that it"s light, but given its relatively small dimensions of 119 x 62 x 12mm, the weight feels about right.



This all serves to lớn give the Nocơ Lumia 610 a feeling of surprisingly high unique for such a cheap phone. Especially when compared, for example, lớn the substantially more expensive sầu Samsung Galaxy S2, which has none of the mật độ trùng lặp từ khóa or solidity lớn it that the Nokia Lumia 610 has.


Sticking lớn the trademark bright & bold colours of the Lumia range, the Notê Lumia 610 comes in magenta or cyan, or if you"re feeling more conventional, black or Trắng.


The phone features several hardware buttons, all of which are positioned on the right-hvà side. There"s a volume rocker near the top, the power button in the middle và a dedicated camera button at the bottom.


The layout isn"t totally ideal, since - depending on how you"re holding the phone - the camera button can be awkward to lớn reach without using two hands. And having the power button so cthua trận to lớn the volume rocker means it"s easy to press the wrong button.

We can"t help but feel that having the power button opposite the volume rocker và moving the camera button slightly further up the toàn thân of the phone would have sầu worked better, as it requires some thumb movement to lớn turn the phone on when held naturally in the hvà.


In addition, the Nokia Lumia 610 has soft key buttons just below the screen for trang chính, baông chồng & tìm kiếm. These are intuitive and feature pictures of each function, making their use obvious even to someone who"s never used the phone before.


The ports, meanwhile, all sit along the top of the phone, with a 3.5milimet tai nghe socket in the centre, và a micro USB connector on the right. There"s also a wrist strap hole on the top-left, while the microphone sits alone at the bottom of the phone.


There"s no microSD thẻ slot, which is especially disappointing given the paltry 8GB of internal storage. The battery cover requires a slide down from the main chassis khổng lồ remove sầu - something that can be hard for those used to popping a backplate off.


Thankfully, for most users it"s a problem they"ll only have to lớn face once, since as soon as the SIM thẻ is in there"s little reason lớn remove the cover again. Although it"s good to lớn know that if you ever want to replace the battery, the option is there, even if it is a little fiddly lớn get at.


The Nokia Lumia 610 sports a respectable 5MPhường camera, the lens of which lies flush with the bachồng cover of the phone. This is always cause for concern, because scratches and smudges can play havoc with photos, although in our time with the phone, while it"s certainly seen its nói qua of smudges, the lens has thankfully remained scratch-không lấy phí.

Ultimately, while it"s not going to lớn win any kiến thiết awards, the Nocơ Lumia 610 is a reasonably attractive sầu & well built handmix.
