They're in completely different leagues but if anyone wants me to do some tests for fun, ask!

How do you find the Lumia 710 mate? What's performance like, etc?

Performance is fantastic for the price range but Windows Phone 7.5 has many glaring omissions, such as no rotation lock (so awful for using it when you're laying down) and no way to increase the (very small) text size.

Also, the camera of the 710 is poor and the fact there is no continuous auto-focus doesn't help at all.

I would mirror that but for some reason the video is quite good. No rotation lock kills Nokia Drive as every little bump shifts it to flip like crazy which is otherwise worth the price of the phone alone (off ebay for £150)

Here are some photos.

Excuse the quality, the F200EXR was a waste of £200.
