CAMERA APP-GRADE

This new camera application fuelled by the Windows Phone 7 will also include smart group shot, action shot, self-timer and panorama shot. This is great news for those who would like a smartphone with a feature filled, yet high quality camera.

 FLIP IT OVER

One quirky addition to the Lumia 710 and 800, which will be added through the new software upgrade is the “flip to silence” feature which will mute the ringtone of the device when there is an incoming call. This can be done by flipping over the phone where its screen will face the surface of where it is placed.
