Posted on Friday, Feb 24 2012 on 12:00 AM

The Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 710, though having the same name, the two devices can be easily differentiated from their chassis. We will compare into more details their specifications.


Firstly, both the models run on the same Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) with 1.4GHz processor. They are both capable of touchscreen and offer the same 480 x 800 pixels on their 3.7-inch display screen. However, when we look into details, the Nokia Lumia 800 offers higher specs compared to the Nokia Lumia 710.
Even though both are capable of touchscreen response, the Nokia Lumia 800 uses AMOLED technology, which will look more pleasant to the eyes compared to TFT technology used by the Nokia Lumia 710. It also has a higher internal storage (16GB vs 8GB) and a better main camera (8-megapixel vs 5-megapixel). However, we expect that the pictures will provide the same viewing experience on the device since both of them are using the same resolution for the screen. You’ll only see a difference when the pix are moved into an external PC.
On the other hand, the Nokia Lumia 710 appears to have a bigger chassis but is lighter than the Nokia Lumia 800 (125.5g vs 142g). Also, it offers more variety of colours for the casing compared to the Nokia Lumia 800 (10-colours vs 3-colours).
