sb1234's review of the Nokia Lumia 810

original version, submitted Jan 11, 2013, 2:21 AM:

delightful!

First of, This is a great phone if you are considering moving from android or ios. You will most (but not all) of the apps that you used to use on a daily basis.
I switched from an android that i had rooted and done all sorts of crazy things. But personally i just wanted something new and this phone is certainly new and different. And within a day or two i was using this new phone with almost utility as my earlier ultra customised android device.

The Good:
UI is slick and smooth. Call quality is very nice in speaker phone as well as normal mode. Fast internet. Internet sharing works seamlessly, and you can connect upto 8 devices. I am easily streaming videos, music as well as using skype video chat with great results.
Camera is great. even in low lights i got some decent pictures. The front camera, which you might need to use when using skype on the phone works, well only if you have good lighting. Otherwise it is just passable.

Freebies:
Nokia music is awesome, you can stream all you want without any ads. Nokia drive also works very nicely indeed. I haven't tried some other apps. But all in all Nokia has done a pretty good job with the software that ships with the device.

The Not so good:
Sometimes the lock screen button becomes unresponsive. (the screen does not go off at all), Hopefully this will get fixed solved soon. I also miss the button on the soft keyboard to hide the keyboard. In order to hide the keyboard i have to tap somewhere on the screen.

All in all a solid phone, not perfect in all regards, but delightful and perfectly usable,
