Nokia Lumia 810 is solid, but ugly Video Transcript
Hey, everyone. I'm Jessica Dolcourt from CNET. This is the Nokia Lumia 810. This is a Windows Phone 8 device for T-Mobile. There are a lot of high-end features on this phone. It's got HSPA plus, 42 speeds on it so that's T-Mobile's fastest 4G network. It does not have LTE of course because T-Mobile doesn't either. It does have a 4.3-inch display that's very bright and pretty. It's an AMOLED display and although it isn't HD, everything looks really clear and bright to me and it's got Nokia's clear black filter on top and that helps cut down on some of the glare. The phone comes in 1 color, black, and it is a thick brick of a phone. I'm not a big fan of the body. It's really thick and square, uniform, could be a lot better. There is optional wireless charging if you switch out the back cover. This one is not wireless. However, it is enabled for NFC so you'll be able to tap and share, and you'll be able to use mobile payments as well. There's an 8-megapixel camera here on the back and the Lumia 810 does come with a couple of extra camera features, including one called Smart Shot, that's an app, and also a Panorama app. There's a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera. Now this is one of the first Windows Phones that we're gonna see that actually includes a micro-SD card for extra storage. There are only 8 gigabytes of storage inside, but you also have 7 gigabytes of free SkyDrive storage and you've got this micro-SD card slot that will take up to 64 gigabytes, so I think you're gonna have plenty of room for your photos and videos. On the processing side of things, there's a 1.5 gigahertz dual-core Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 processor that's pretty fast. Since this is a Nokia phone, you're gonna find some extra apps like Nokia Drive, Nokia Music, and Nokia's augmented reality app which is called City Lens. Overall, I think that the user experience is going to be very nice. There's a lot of uniformity across Windows Phone. There are also some high-end features on this device and Nokia does throw in a couple of extra apps that you're not gonna see with any other Windows Phone. However, when it comes to the design, I am disappointed. Its lackluster, Nokia could've done better. This is not a device that you're gonna buy because you think it's beautiful even if you can change the colors on the back, but it is one that is very practical especially if you are interested in a Windows Phone.

Nokia Lumia 810 (T-Mobile) Review
The good: Nokia's Lumia 810 has decent call quality and a nice helping of extra software that differentiates it from other Windows phones. It's also one of the first Windows phones with external storage.
The bad: This bulky smartphone has an uninspiring build and is more expensive than AT&T's higher-end Lumia 920.
The bottom line: The Nokia Lumia 810 makes for a practical smartphone choice, but if you're looking for something thin and light, the HTC Windows Phone 8X is one better option.
