T-Mobile Lumia 810 first impressions and hands-on

T-Mobile was gracious enough to throw their new Nokia Lumia 810 device our way for review, but before that goes up I wanted to get a few shots up of this gorgeous phone. My first impression when taking it out of the box is how soft the phone feels in your hand. It’s almost like touching velvet. The Lumia 810 will be offered with a set of colored faceplates that go around the phone and enable wireless charging, but unless they feel exactly like the bare bones phone I can’t say I’d want to use one, wireless charging or not. It really feels that great.

The weight of the phone is slightly more than my old Samsung Captivate and less than the Lumia 900 I’m sporting now. It feels solid without feeling cheap, which is something most handset manufacturers seem to struggle with these days. Overall, the phone has a great visual style and will definitely catch eyes when you pull it out of your pocket.

  • I love the look of this phone.

  • Would you say this is the phone to get over the 8X on T-Mobile?

  • Really a nice looking phone. If I had T-Mobile, I’d definitely be running off to grab one.

  • Hey Logan, I’ll have a full review going up Friday that will be a full-featured analysis. I haven’t personally felt the 8X, but the Lumia 810 is definitely solid, especially if a super camera isn’t something you need.

  • Now this is the Lumia I would want, not all that other colorful crap.

    You could just get a black HTC Windows Phone 8X! That phone is so awesome!

    Do you care for aesthetics? Because the 8X is BEAUTIFUL!

    It really is a beautiful phone. My wife felt the 920, after holding the 8X and is waiting for her work to get the 8X in to swap out the 920 for it.

    Spec wise the 8x is a better device but since Nokia is “all aboard” windows phone 8 I would say the best bet is to go with Nokia. You get the added Nokia only apps plus it will probably get more frequent updates than the HTC phone. Remember guys, HTC is more invested in Android while Nokia only has windows so it stands to reason Nokia will support the platform more.

    Seriously. I have been saying this way too much, but here we go again. lol. The Windows Phone 8X is the best-looking phone I have seen to date. I love it. The Nokia Lumia 920 is a better deal with a cheaper price and better specs, but if work will get it for her… I would go for the 8X. lol

  • that’s my next phone.
