Nokia Lumia 510 review: views from the experts

The Nokia Lumia 510 (bar the Nokia Lumia 505) is the cheapest Windows Phone smartphone from Nokia yet. It’s a 4-inch little number aimed at those on a budget but with all the features you’ll find in any Nokia Lumia, from Nokia Music to Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive. Here we check out what the experts have been saying about the Nokia Lumia 510.

--> Nokia Lumia 510: 10 things you need to know

The Nokia Lumia 510 is a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen smartphone with a 800 x 480-pixel display and measures in at 129g and measures 120.7 x 64.9 x 11.5mm. Like the Nokia Lumia 610 you’ll find that it comes with 256MB of RAM, and is rounded out with 4GB of storage and 7GB of SkyDrive cloud storage.

Additional features include a 5-Megapixel with auto-focus and video recording in VGA resolution at 30fps, GPRS/EDGE, WLAN 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, GPS/A-GPS, micro-USB connector and charging and 3.5mm audio jack.
Here we take a look at what the first experts around the world have been saying about this 4-inch Windows Phone smartphone.


The screen may be a fingerprint magnet but the rear has a nice matt finish. A tad lighter and thinner than the Lumia 610, the new device has a slightly larger footprint, due to the bigger 4-inch display which dominates the device. Beneath that 480 x 800 touchscreen, you’ll find the three Windows Phone backlit capacitive keys, while the bottom edge houses the micro-USB port. The headphone socket is on the top edge, while the sleep / wake button and volume controls are all found along the right side.

The Nokia Lumia 510 is the cheapest Windows Phone device in the country. It boasts of a large screen, Nokia applications and all the joys that come with a Windows device. However, what may be a deal breaker for most consumers is the lack of storage options, with it being limited to 2.5GB of usable memory. If you can somehow overlook that, then with all its features and a promised update to Windows Phone 7.8, the Nokia Lumia 510 is one of the best devices you can purchase for under the Rs 10,000/- mark.

In conclusion, Lumia 510 achieves its goal of reaching out to the entry level market, it being the cheapest  Windows phone device in the market with quite a good experience is a huge plus for Nokia. It has good hardware and meets most basics, but for that one reason  that is USSD you might want to have a backup phone for those transactions, which might prove tasking considering it’s a micro-SIM device and most of the others are mini-SIM. For Windows users who had longed to experience the much talked about Windows Phone OS but would be cash limited, this device would be good for you while you wait for the Lumia 620 to become available. Or at-least a better experience when Windows 7.8 is available for download.

Right, so Lumia 510 display is what makes it stand out. Lumia 510 comes with a 4 inch TFT 480 x 800 pixels (~233 ppi) display. Keep this in perspective, it has a larger display than Lumia 610, 710 and 800 and all these phones have WVGA resolution at 3.7inches. However the other models have higher PPIs but if you aren’t really used to retinas and One Xs (which you probably aren’t if you are looking to buy a lumia 510) – it won’t really be any issue at all. In fact, 4 inch v//s 3.7 inch difference is significant. After using 510, I personally am never going to a display < 4 inches.

The thing for which Nokia is famous and the thing which it does very well. Hardware, and Nokia Lumia 510 is no exception .No complaints about the build quality, since it feels very solid and well put together. However it’s worth noting that the back cover, even with it’s soft touch finish, attracts dust, and finger smudges incredibly easily.It fits very easily in the hands yet. Good job Nokia.
If you’re on a tight budget and want a decent smartphone, well here ya go. Just note that it has both hardware and software limitations along with it’s affordable price tag.
