Let start our discussion with some of the vital hardware organs of the handset. The Lumia 710 comes packed with a 1.4 GHz single core processor which is properly seconded by a 512 MB RAM. Here I would like to tell you that the bigger Lumia also sports the same Processor and RAM configuration. In the storage segment the  Nokia Lumia 710 has a capacity of 8GB, but the problem is it does not offer a card slot for memory expansion.

Carrying the hardware talk forward, let’s talk of the camera capability of the Lumia 710; it has a rear camera of 5MP which has a resolution of 2592x1944p. As far as the camera features are concerned the camera has a single LED flash, there is geo tagging, exposure compensation, touch focus, auto and manual white balance, and the camera can record videos at 720p. But again the problem is that the handset does not offer a front camera hence no video chat.

Finally, the pricing which plays a very crucial role in deciding whether a budget smartphone is worth buying or not. The Nokia Lumia 710 costs the users around 19,999 INR, a fair deal for such a good phone.

In the end, I would like to tell the readers that the Phone might have some weakness like small memory, a weak screen resolution and no front cam but, Lumia 710 at 19,999 INR is a deal worth cracking, so take it as soon as you can!!
