T-Mobile customers truly love the Nokia Lumia 710 seeing it's blessed with a 5-star rating

Still on the fence about picking it up? Well, if you need some concrete evidence that buyers are happy with the Mangofied smartphone, you simply need to point yourself to the direction of T-Mobile’s very own web site. From the looks of it, the Nokia Lumia 710 has skyrocketed to the top of the charts in terms of rating amongst T-Mobile’s lineup.
5-star average rating, from 42 reviews by customers, the Lumia 710 appears to be making a profound impact on these people. For a Windows Phone, that’s great news and reiterates the fact that there is a high customer satisfaction rating across the board with Windows Phones in general.
Are you skeptical about the average rating from T-Mobile customers? In comparison, the white Samsung Galaxy S II is also rated 5-stars, but it’s from a paltry 9 reviews. Meanwhile, the LG GS170 claims the opposite end of the ladder with a dismal 2 ¼ star rating, while the HTC Wildfire S comes in next with its 3-star rating. So there you go people, T-Mobile customers are sounding off their voice, and based on that, the Lumia 710 is clearly on the favorable side!

Like ive said before..this os is the one to watch...look at the htc titan reviews....all great reviews across the spectrum...wp will be my next choice...why...because im tired of quadruple core phones.all for the sake of high end specs and not performing. Half of a day of usage...fragmentation...300 phones...force closes...reboots....droid this..droid that...release after release of the same model of a phone..data connectiviterformingy problems....i guess u can sense my frustrations.

For there being that many reviews compared to all the other models, it kind of makes you wonder if all of these are legitimate users giving the device praise.

As a TMo customer it is legit! TMo (employees) have pushed the Android phones for so long once someone has tried WP devices they're like - WTF! How the heck have I been missing out on this great OS! Now add in good looking and running phones and it equals winner for the customer and MS! You get the same type of reviews for the HTC Radar 4G. If you don't believe me check it out on tmobile site for your self. These devices a very smooth and very capable.

for those that give wp7.5 a chance, almost all are happy with it. its not for the heavy modders, its for the average joe. and for the average joe, its a great device. I've been pushing the nokia quite a bit since it launched as it feels well made, is smooth as butter, has nokia nav which is the only thing even remotely close to google maps, and gives you a ton of bang for almost nothing. It shares the same processor as the 900, just with a smaller non amoled screen, camera, and a little less memory. the actual function of the device is the same.

People buying that phone usually get budget phones so their standards are lower, not saying it's not a good phone, but a good phone for the money, just look at reviews at sites like Amazon, glowing reviews for crappy products, not bad people trying to give you a bad review, but they just don't know any better. Just wait for higher end Windows 7 phones and the reviews won't be as good since people buying top of the line phones expect and want and know better. Not trying to sound like an elitist douchebag I'm really not one, but my father just said a couple of days ago that he was totally happy with his first Android phone even though it's the worst I've tried, really laggy, cheap feeling, awful battery life (Samsung Exhibit II 4G on T-Mobile), he's coming from feature Metro-PCS phones, so he doesn't really know any better

Those people probably rated the phone before finding out they can't change their WALLPAPER/BACKGROUND LOL!

Technically you can, but only the lock screen wallpaper.

It proves that these phones have found their way into the hands of the RIGHT consumers. I'm not taking anything away from the 710, but if you had me reviewing it, I sure as hell wouldn't give it anything over 3 stars because WP7.5 lacks things that I value in a phone. But then again, I wouldn't be purchasing it either, although for some reason I am very tempted to get the 900. I miss having a Nokia.

If you're reviewing you have to keep in mind that it's a mid-range device not a GSII, so even if it has a score of 9/10 doesn't mean its the best smartphone out there, it means just the best in its category.

Muhannad..thats the problem..we are so now accustomed to dual core..lte..1gb of ram..32 gigs of storage..hd screen...12mp camera...that anything less is crappy or mid range...the lumina 900 @ 1.4 ghz...16 gigs of stoage will probably be labeled as mid range spec wise...but i bet that same phone would run circles around any highend android device...its the os of android that is causing the fc..reboots...etc...you dont find this on ios or wp7...the os has been tailored to run at those speeds...where we keep feeding android...next they are talking quad core and 2 gigs of ram...who needs that on a smartphone

Hope Nokia succeeds resoundingly this time around. As to WP7, started using it a month ago and I'm very impressed with how smooth, responsive, and intuitive it is! I love it now just as much as, if not more than, my Android!

Honestly, find a poorly reviewed Windows Phone, I dare ya. They have all been well received, and most users are very happy with their phones. Now, live tiles and the Windows format is not for everyone, and that is fine. But having WP as a successful option to Android, Apple, and whatever BlackBerry offers is something I hope will be here for a long, long time. I am very excited to think this is just Nokia's first effort for Windows. Just imagine what they will offer when they really get warmed up.

Ive had alot of phones! WebOs was my fave but we know what happened with that. I now love WP and my Lumia 710 better even then I did my iphone 4S I sold! besides lack of front facing cam everything else is great! Im also enjoying Tmobiles faster data speeds comapred to Sprint's crappy ones! I would say this phone is for anyone esp those who like wp.
