Nokia Lumia 710: Working out with my phone

, posted: 4-Apr-2012 16:48

I have a phone case that is totally water proof. I sometimes swim with my phone and listen to music. It’s great but almost all of the time I am only able to listen to my own music while swimming. I know, I am so hard done by...

Well, I tried it with the Nokia Lumia 710 and to my surprise I was able to listen to the radio while swimming this time! Also I received several texts from my daughter while swimming. I know I can hear you all saying why would you want to text while swimming. I don’t but every now and again you need to always be on call.

I have found that the reception on this phone is better than my other phone. I have had no trouble with calls when in underground car parks, and some shops that I usually lose reception on my normal phone. I normally am not on the Telecom XT network if that is important.

It is so nice to have a 3.5 mm headset jack that will take any 3.5 mm headset. As I like many others have a certain headset that we only use on our phones or mp3 players. It’s very simple to set up your favourite radio stations, ready for when you want to listen while on the move.

I found it was easy to sync my music, videos and photos to the phone.

I enjoyed watching a movie while walking on a treadmill. Although the movie had been converted to be viewed on the Nokia Lumia 710 it was very good and I was able to watch the full movie without the picture quality being compromised.

My phone is my music and video centre on the move. I need to be able to enjoy both music and movies whenever I want to relax or exercise. I want choices and this handset gives me those choices while I am out and about.
