Camera:

The Nokia Lumia 610 comes with a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, which takes photos of average quality when given best case scenario conditions. Our outdoor shots look acceptable, although fine details are absent. At times, the camera has a hard time setting exposure and white balance accurately, which might lead to overexposed frames or cold-looking colors. When shooting indoors, there is a lot of digital noise present in photos, and the LED flash fails to fill the scene with light entirely. Overall, photos are suitable for uploading to Facebook or perhaps making small prints, but nothing beyond that. Videos seem usable, but they look unimpressive since VGA is the maximum supported resolution, which is relatively low compared to what we are used to.

Multimedia:

The default music player gets the job done, although we wish we didn't have to use Zune every time we wanted to throw some music into the smartphone's library. Overall, the app is pretty straightforward to use, with a simple, uncluttered interface and lock screen controls. The video player could play back a 720p video sample of ours, but occasional frame drops were noticeable. VGA videos, on the other hand, played back smoothly.
