We've already mentioned a number of other Nokia 710 reviews that have caught our eye, but there are plenty of other opinions too; here are reviews from PC Magazine, Engadget, CNET, PCWorld, AnandTech, GottabeMobile, Laptop Magazine, TmoNews and GeekWire.
A common theme amongst earlier reviewers is that the Lumia 710 is a solid phone, but lacks the glamour of higher end devices. MobileBurn's review explains this nicely:
It doesn't turn any heads or break any new ground in design or performance, and there are some issues with the quality of the components in its construction. Still, it is a solid smartphone that offers a simple interface, quick performance, great call quality, and decent battery life - and at T-Mobile's $49.99 asking price, there really isn't much room for complaint here. For a first-time smartphone, a buyer could do much worse than the Lumia 710, that is for sure. Nokia has promised that it will bring a "portfolio" of devices to the U.S. this year, so those who pine for a high-end smartphone will just have to stay tuned.
The Nokia Lumia 710 is set to be available from T-Mobile stores, from January 11th, at a cost of $50 with a contract.
