This review is from: Nokia Lumia 810 Black 3G Dual-Core 1.5GHz 8GB Unlocked Cell Phone
Pros: I bought this as my second foray into windows phones. Had a 7.8 device that was nice and wanted to try WP8. I have used this phone on T-Mobile and AT&T and it picked up 4G on both networks. Very fast phone, simple to use...definitely. Very snappy, like it more than my S4. The camera is very good - crisp pictures, good detail and works better at night than my S4 did.
If you are looking for a phone that is not overloaded with screens where you can get lost this is it. Generally everything you need is in the first 3 screens.
Corporate integration is nice, built in Outlook client is very good and the skydive integration is top notch and does not get enough press.
Best battery life of a full size phone I've had in a long time.
Cons: While not for me, it does not have the same number of apps as Google or Apple, but more than BB for sure. But it has all the apps I care about, FB, Twitter, Viber, Whatsapp, Evernote and Pandora.
There are not many case options out there, really have to hunt.
Other Thoughts: If you put this on anything other than tmobile, you need to download and install the Nokia access point app so you can add ATT's values. After that it works like a dream.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Bang for the buck, you get a lot for the price
-Good build quality
-Good full qwerty keyboard
-Wi-Fi calling if you have a T-Mobile sim
Cons: -Internal memory, while specs say plenty - is mostly full with software you can't uninstall
-Battery life: But it is after all a smartphone, there are apps to address this
-Screen size a tad small for browsing, though double tap lets you zoom in
Other Thoughts: I did some research and bought one for my son, and have one for me now. He's a hard core texter, and former qwerty phone user from the big name vendors. He wanted droid with the power of texting. He seems to love this phone, is able to get plenty of apps for it, and it has wifi which is great.
Does have limits with internal memory, but you can get around that by being smart on how you use the SD card. If you put apps on the SD card, make sure its got a good speed rating.
I've tested it with AT&T and T-Mobile SIM cards and it works as described. Get 3G on both and it has good wifi managment. It's an underestimated phone and if you are willing to do some research on it, and will find it quite capable. I use mine as a backup to my BB unit. It can display documents, works with active sync, and has good social app integration being a droid phone.
Pros: Cost for sure
Good build quality
Wi-Fi calling (when supported by carrier)
Plug and play PC setup
Cons: Battery life
Screen resolution could be higher - but still decent
Limited phone storage - there are ways around this though
Not a lot of case options out there
Other Thoughts: The price of this phone is an incredible value. I bought a batch of these during the 2011 RIM outage for our IT staff to stay connected to emails via active sync. I also bought one for my text crazed teenage son and he loves it.
For a Blackberry user (or qwerty candy bar type phone), this is a great bridge into the droid world. It runs 2.1 and will update to 2.1 update 1 if you go to settings, about, update which includes tmobile wifi calling which works well. Also allows for text over wifi which is great for my son as he has no signal in the house. There are plenty of apps for it.
I've tested it with T-Mobile and AT&T sim cards and both work fine.
Only issue I had was the internal storage while plenty, was full of T-Mobile apps I would never use, like MySpace! There are solutions to this that involve rooting of the phone, research and some tech knowledge. Exercise caution here but there are solutions here.
It has a nice keyboard and great for the texting c
