Video and Video Chat
When it comes to Video, the Lumia 710 is pretty straight forward. The interface and video quality are relatively good and the camera is capable of capturing video at a reasonable frame rate, although, not at 1080P. Since the Lumia 710 is somewhat of a mid-to-low range smartphone, we don’t necessarily consider 720P to be a bad resolution.
Also, the Lumia 710 does not have a front facing camera, so videochat cannot be accomplished on it unlike its Lumia 800 and 900 bigger brothers.
Above is a sample of our video footage we’ve taken with the Nokia Lumia 710 to illustrate the video quality and performance.Camera and Photography
The Nokia Lumia 710 is pretty straightforward with photography, as are most Nokia phones. Nokia is generally very good when it comes to their cameras, as we illustrated in our Nokia N8 review as well as their announcement of the 38 Megapixel Nokia 808 Pureview. The 710 features a 5MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics and is a considerably large lens for such a small 3.7” phone. The camera size on the 710 is more like something we’d expect to see on a 4.3” or 4.5” phone.
We have attached (below) some photos of the Lumia 710 so you can see the image quality. The camera is surprisingly good when you once again consider the price of the device, as in free with contract. We unfortunately don’t have any other current phones that are free on contract to test against, but this is certainly a pretty decent camera for someone just starting to use smartphones. We did notice that this camera suffered quite a bit from grain in low light situations, which isn't surprising considering the price of the phone and all. None of these images have been modified in any way other than to shrink them down to the size to fit in this review.
