The Nokia Lumia 710 uses a single-core, 1.4 GHz Snapdragon S2 MSM8255 processor from Qualcomm, a.k.a. “Scorpion,” which is the same chip found in the Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 models. Windows Phone 7.5 operating system, and all the applications we tried, ran smoothly, with no lags or sluggishness. A single-core processor is used simply because Windows Phone 7.5 doesn't supports multi-core processors. The HTC Inspire 4G uses the same processor, while the HTC Thunderbolt uses a processor from the same family, the MSM8655.

The Adreno 205 GPU, integrated with the main chip, proved to be effective and fast even on the 3D games we installed.

As we previously mentioned, the 3.7-inch screen has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. This resolution is actually mandatory for any device running Windows Phone 7.5.

Figure 4 shows the back side of the phone without the cover. Here you can see the slot for the micro-SIM chip and the place for the battery. There is no micro-SD slot for a memory card, which is actually a Windows Phone limitation.
