Engadget Review

Nokia's first stateside Windows Phone Mango handset is an all around solid performer and for the budget price, it's a must-have.

CNET
The $49.99 Nokia Lumia 710 is an excellent way to get the growing capabilities of a Windows Mango smartphone for a rock-bottom price. Though it isn't an Android superphone with a luscious AMOLED display, it's a practical device that covers all the mobile bases.

PocketNow
You should buy this device for the inexpensive price tag, feature-rich people-centric operating system, and maybe even the interchangeable colors that you'll be able to get soon.

Tom's Hardware
The Lumia 710 is budget-friendly, but it doesn't sacrifice build quality in any way... We think that this phone's attractive price tag will help compel mainstream buyers into Windows Phone 7, despite the fact that it's bolstered by fewer apps.

SlashGear
Nokia has played it safe here with a collection of hardware bits that not only fit the Microsoft set of parameters set out for devices running their mobile OS, but fit right inside what we’ve seen in the past for Nokia’s own line as well.

PC World
The Nokia Lumia 710 might not be the most powerful phone, but its reliable performance, array of business and entertainment features and crisp display makes it a top choice for first time smartphone owners and those on a tight budget.

BGR
This phone is aimed squarely at feature phone users that T-Mobile hopes to turn into smartphone owners. The handset is reliable and easy-to-use, and I highly recommend the Lumia 710 to first-time smartphone buyers.

Ubergizmo
This phone does what exactly what Nokia designed it for: deliver a great basic smartphone user experience, in an affordable package.

AnandTech
For $50 after subsidy, you get a device that comes with the same SoC as the other higher-end WP7 devices, a 5 MP camera that produces great photos, and whose only caveat is 8 GB of NAND.

Laptop Magazine
The $49.99 Nokia Lumia 710 is one of the best value-priced smartphones out there. It offers an engaging user interface, snappy performance, and a clear and bright display.

TechRadar
Although we would buy the Nokia Lumia 710 over the HTC Radar, it's overshadowed by the Nokia Lumia 800, which impressed us a lot more and makes the Nokia Lumia 710 feel more like its cheaper relative... you're better off saving up a little more money and buying the Nokia Lumia 800 instead.
