If there's one thing that's great about Windows Phone, it's the consistency of performance across different price tiers, and that's no different here.  Aaron pits the Nokia Lumia 710 against the HTC Radar 4G in a dogfight of epic T-Mobile proportions.  The Lumia 710 is Nokia's first Windows Phone to land in the US and offers a 1.4 GHz processor, 3.7-inch display with ClearBlack technology, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, and a 1,300 mAh battery.  The HTC Radar 4G has a 1 GHz CPU, 3.8-inch display, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, and a 1,520 mAh battery.  Both have Windows Phone 7.5, also known as Mango.

The Lumia 710 has the faster processor along with goodies like Nokia Drive pre-installed, but the Radar 4G has a bigger battery, larger display, and a front-facing camera.  Which one will win?  Part 1 of 2.

Peter Loc Roberts @JJFlynn i completely agree with you
JJ Flynn I love Windows Phone. Just wish sprint wasnt so stupid. They picked up Android pretty quick. No look to the future
SnKBlaZe HTC Radar 4G! It has a better build quality and front-facing camera. Lumia 710 seems pathetic compared to Nokia’s caliber; they honestly could have remade the Nokia C7 (Nokia Astound) with the same processor (as the Lumia 710) running Mango. It would have made for a much better product.
Philip Weißner I think their is no Big different so they bouth are interessting, but if I should buy my a New WP7 then the Nokia Lumia 710 or 900 cause you have Nokia exklusive App's Like Nokia Drive...
catire98 I am very happy with the Radar and very surprised with Windows Phone.
Jose Pablo Islas I'll stick to Android :)
Sam Bahhur radar has better build quality
Zach Cline Neither
Joey J. Bowles I'm sure the Nokia is good too, I've only used the radar.
Joey J. Bowles The wife has the HTC radar and loves it. The new windows phone system is the best mobile operating system I have used. It is so smooth fast, and easy to use.
Claude Crevecoeur I love android devices but I will give windows device a try I love the live tiles i think its cool & its different.
Vlad Valentine McBride I am gonna guess radar
Eduardo Ordaz Galaxy S3 better than both. Wp7 is just too boring.
Yan Zhenghao Nokia ftw
Nikhil Chakka Samsung galaxy s2
Joe Sellner Switched from a G1 to a TP2 to an HD2 to an HD7 to a Radar - Haven't had a chance to play with the Lumia yet. I do like my Radar quite a bit though (wished it came in a better color)
Alvaro Astudillo I own a radar and wouldn't have it any other way. My next phone will most definitely be a lumia 900.
Sami Agha Radar 4g
Hunter Remington I have a ep touch, but I also have a radar I love. Windows phone is really growing on me. I want the Lumia 900 on T-Mobile.
Joshua Ogbuefi I'm going to be ignorant .... HTC vivid

Richard Ameen Lumina. Nokia build quality is awesome
Rodrick Benoit Torrizzle Eduardo, how can you possibly know what the S3 looks like? Unless, of course, you work at Samsung in South Korea, which I doubt.
William Hall Oh please. Everyone one here who hates WP7, search youtube for "smoked by a windows phone" and shut up!
Cory Wilson Both garbage
Brian Walden I checked out the Lumia 710 at a T-Mobile store today and played with it. It was a solid phone. I just don't know how I feel about T-Mobile. The reps there acted like they could care less about getting my business.
Justus Bennett-Wood Lumia 900! That's what I want
Hansel Starley Now that's a dog fight I want to see. Go Radar!
Joel Rivera HTC Sensation 4G. Lol.
