CNET UK said, "For a mid-range smart phone, the Nokia Lumia 710 has loads to offer -- it's well built, runs on easy-to-use Windows Phone, and comes with free music, sat-nav and mapping apps."
Some reviewers noted problems with the phone. The device had an issue with disconnecting calls, however, Nokia addressed the problem with a software update. TechRadar said the phone has a poor battery life. PC World said that "The Lumia 710's photos were mediocre." According to TechSpot, "The Lumia 710's button problems don't end with the front of the phone, as the volume rocker and camera key on the right edge are very mushy and don't provide much feedback. The camera key, in particular, is quite hard to use, as it is very difficult to determine when you have pushed it down completely."
