-First Use and Calling/Reception
Upon turning on the Lumia 710 for the first time, the account setup process requires almost nothing beyond setting up the phone with a Microsoft Live account and setting up the user’s preferred social networks. Our biggest complaint, though, is that Nokia requires you to sign into their network in addition to signing into Microsoft’s. Since Nokia’s service does not actually serve as a social network or something similar, it is somewhat annoying to have to sign up/sign in to two different services when setting up your device. We believe Nokia should consider this and allow users to sign up for Nokia’s services using their Microsoft Live account.
Other than that, our first impressions of the device were very positive with the phone performing beyond our expectations of the latest iteration of Windows Phone. Considering our past experiences with Windows Phone were very negative, and the fact that it was incredibly buggy, our first impressions of the Nokia Lumia 710 were actually very good. We also liked the fact that Nokia added in their own applications like Drive Navigation and Maps which work really well in metropolitan areas and places where internet service is spotty. We do, though, not like the fact that it is a huge download which does take up quite a bit of time and perhaps should already be pre-loaded on the device for unpacking/installation.
