The Nokia Lumia 610 is an entry level windows phone it si one of the most affordable windows phone in the market. Right now its market price is around 12000k in India and this is what makes the Nokia Lumia 610 a very decent alternative to low grade android smart phones.

Spectfication NokiaLumia 610

Lets talk bout the look of the phone. For its price point the Nokia Lumia 610 looks quite presentable, it comes in four colors, black, cyan, magenta and white. Its pretty well built and the ergonomics is such that it fits just right into the hand. The back cover has a soft touch finish but it is also a finger print magnet and could have been a little better. On the front there are three capacitive buttons that are quite good and no problem of accidental press at all. On the right side of the phone there is the volume rocker the lock key and the shutter button. Nokia also is giving away free Dark Knight merchandise with the lumia 610.

Display - Lumai 610

The Nokia Lumia 610 has a very nice display with high pixel density. It measures 119.2 X 62.2 X 12.0 mm and the weight is 131.5 grams and feels just right. The resolution is 480 X 800 pixels which is standard for a windows phone as a result the Lumia 610 provides a crisp display and even the small text is easy to read and the graphics is quite smooth and the colors looks good too for this price.

Interface - Lumia 610

The interface on the Windows phone Lumia 610 is very simple and intuitive. There are verious live tabs that provide quick access to certain features. The back key gets you to the recently opened applications and last activity which I feel is a very nice touch. The gaming experience is not as smooth as you would want it to be the 800 megahertz processor and 256 Mb of RAM are pretty weak for handling games and other resource intensive applications, so things can get a bit choppy at times. Popular games like the Angry birds are not supported in this handset but scaled down versions of these games are expected soon. Web browsing on the Nokia Lumia 610 is good, how ever there is a little bit fo choppiness with heavy web pages but simple pages load quite well. Pinch to zoom and readability of text is good. You tube videos load without any problems and the full screen playback is great.

Camera - On the Lumia 610

The lumia 610 has a 5 megapixel camera on the back and the photos are of average quality but it gets the job done. White balance is nice but the phone tends to overexpose the photos sometime but nothing to complain there as phone cameras cant be compared to DSLR's. In comparison to other phone cameras its pretty good.

To conclude its a great phone if you are thinking about migrating from Android to a Windows phone, 8 out of 10 for the Lumia 610
