Normally, entry-level smartphones aren’t known for their camera quality, but with this, we’re utterly impressed that there’s some love being thrown onto it. Despite lacking the PureView association, the Lumia 810’s 8-megapixel auto-focus camera delivers some very exciting looking results. Sure, it might be lacking some fine details, but at least the general look of its shots are pleasant enough to accept. Furthermore, its F2.2 lens shows its worth in low lighting conditions as well, since it’s able to brighten things up to draw out some details – without the sacrifice of exhibiting stronger noise. Finally, it’s dual-LED flash is potent, but it does cast a noticeable vignetting effect.

Far from perfect, the 1080p video recording quality out of the Nokia Lumia 810 is still tolerable enough to accept. However, there are some distractions found with it – these include its dull details, instances of artifacting, and slow focus adjustment. Nevertheless, its neutral color reproduction, gradual exposure, and smooth 29 frames per second capture help to balance things out.

Finding the same old lovable Windows Phone 8 music player, which clearly retains the consistent dynamic appearance of the platform, it’s both visually pleasing to look at and functional to use. Unfortunately, the audio quality out of its speaker is rather sharp and irritating in tone – thus, delivering a strained output.

No doubt, we would’ve like to see a higher resolution display, but nonetheless, WVGA isn’t much of a distraction when it comes to watching videos. In fact, its ClearBlack AMOLED display delivers the goods, as the poppy colors of the screen help to keep our eyes affixed on it – plus, it has a very smooth playback with 1080p videos.
