At the time Nokia started their Windows Phone series, they got a high-range Lumia 900, mid-ranged Lumia 800 and lower mid-range 710 all available. After releasing the aforementioned Lumia Phones, Nokia released another Windows Phone, which is the Lumia 610 to fit some of the consumers’ budget. Although after they released a lower-priced Lumia 610, they released another phone, which is more budget-friendly, the Lumia 510.

 

 

Video Review

 

Now, we will have a quick look about the Nokia Lumia 510

The Nokia Lumia 510 is a phone with a lot of good stuffs and bad stuffs. On the good side, it is cheap, has a good build quality and just an average entry-level smart phone. On the down side, you might think twice if you wanted to buy this smart phone. If you can accept the limitations of this phone. If you are thinking about some of the hardware limitations of the phone, it’s just some of the apps you downloaded from the Windows store might not work and you will get really irritated because you will be getting frame rate drop or to be very familiar, you will be getting laggy each and every time. If you will be thinking about Nokia Lumia 510 between an Android Phone on the same price, it is very good to choose the Android phone although will be experiencing similar limitations but a wider selection of applications.

 

PROS:

  • A very good price who is having a very tight budget
  • Solid built quality to fit the user’s choice
  • Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and everything Nokia can offer to you

 

CONS:

  • A little dark screen
  • Doesn’t support front camera
  • Really average 5 Megapixel camera for a Phone
  • Some applications downloaded on the Windows Store won’t run
  • A little laggy and continuous frame rate drop
  • Doesn’t have LED flash means that you can’t just take photos on a dark environment
  • Doesn’t support external memory meaning you can’t just maximize your needs and need to stick with the 4GB memory
