This makes it affordable for anyone to experience Windows Phone, especially youths or mobile users that are upgrading from good old feature phones.
In our rather brief hands on, the Lumia 610 offers a rather smooth experience similar to its expensive siblings. In fact, we felt that the overall build of the Lumia 610 is much more premium than the Lumia 710 and it comes with a nice metallic frame around the screen.
To recap on the specs, it runs on a lower 800MHz processor, 256MB of RAM with 8GB of internal storage. At the front, it has a 3.7″ WVGA display and powering the device is a 1,300mAh battery. Over at the back, it has a 5MP shooter with assisted LED flash. It is also worth pointing out that the Lumia 610 also comes with a dedicated camera button.
