Review: Microsoft branded Lumia

On paper, the Lumia 535 looks like a very good deal, and it would be – had we not run into a number of serious input issues that were not successfully addressed by the latest software update.

The Lumia 535 was the first Microsoft branded phone introduced after the software giant bought Nokia’s mobile business. The phone proudly displays a Microsoft logo on both sides of the device, but aside from new branding, Microsoft did not change the traditional Lumia design. The Lumia 535 looks a lot like previous Nokia Lumia models. The Lumia 535 is going after the value segment, and has a number of interesting features at its price point of just €119.The phone sports a 5-inch IPS 960x540 display, 5-megapixel cameras at the front and back. A dual-SIM version is available too.

The 1905mAh battery is user-replaceable and should offer average battery life. The main camera packs a 1/4” sensor with a 28mm f/2.4 lens and LED flash. Performance is somewhat limited, as both cameras only support 848x480 video at 30fps.

The Lumia 535 measures 140x72x8.8mm and weighs 146 grams. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. It also sports 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal NAND storage, backed by a microSD slot. Microsoft also includes 15GB of free cloud storage with each purchase.
