Nokia Lumia 810 Review
With the exception of the sharp tone and muffled voices produced by the speakerphone, the call quality on the Lumia 810 is rather pleasing. So much so that voices on both ends of the line are clear, distinctive, and noise-free.

Signal strength remains steady with the handset, as we didn’t experience any major fluctuations or dropped calls during our testing in the high coverage areas of the greater Philadelphia region.

Stuffed with an 1,800 mAh battery, it’s only able to provide us with average results. Specifically, a full charge enables us to get by through a solid work day with our mixed normal usage – albeit, it’s still something that requires nightly charging to be at a sufficient level for the next day.


Conclusion:

On the surface, there’s nothing cool or hip looking with the Nokia Lumia 810, which is a shame considering it’s a Lumia device, but yet, it’s lacking any of the distinct design cues to make it a part of the family. However, once you’re able to overlook its boring design and discover its inner beauty, the Lumia 810 really shines as an entry-level smartphone. Interestingly enough, the Windows Phone 8 experience here is identical to what you’ll find in Nokia’s flagship in the Lumia 920. And even though it’s not packing a PureView camera per se, its quality is remarkably pleasant for a basic handset. Therefore, if you can overlook its beastly appearance, you’ll find the beauty within that’ll impress on so many levels.
