The Nokia Lumia 710 for T-Mobile represents Nokia's first Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone for the U.S., despite the fact that the higher-end Lumia 800 model has been available in other parts of the world for some time already. The Lumia 710 shares a number of features with its higher-priced brother (mostly under the skin), but it's low-cost roots can be quite evident in crucial areas like the phone's display and build quality.
Thanks to a fast processor and Windows Phone 7.5's attractive and snappy interface, the Lumia 710 is no slouch when you use it, and the phone benefits from solid call quality, decent battery life, and a usable camera. Read on to see whether the Lumia 710 can make a splash in the crowded U.S. smartphone market, or if it just another forgettable, entry-level device.
