For the specification freaks out there, windows runs admirably on 512 MB RAM phones, this has 1 GB. Memory card extension is till 128 GB, max. network speed is 42.2 MBPS. These specs.s pointed above are not available even in some 20,000 rs. android phones, china phones included. The only compromise in it's low price is camera then, and that too can be expected to have clarity as much as your average 5mp back and 2mp front ones. A solid no nonsense budget phone.
Phone is as good as can be at ?6000. Its performance is on a par with Moto E. Dont be put off by the Camera, its better than the generic 5MP android phone cameras. If you are a fan of Windows Phone & part of Microsoft service ecosystem - Onedrive, Win 8.1 PC etc, this will be a treat, especially awesome at this price. If you are trying for the first time, you may well be compelled.nPro - Lag Free, cool looks, sturdy, good sound - loud & clear, complete array of featuresnCons - Basic Camera(still better than Moto E) , No flashnnRefined Budget Smartphonennre Windows Phone - nPersonally I feel the Start Screen concept is so simple, quick & convenient to use, its brilliant. For an older generation person, to have common contacts, messages, camera, photos, calculator etc all available as individual live tiles, as soon as unlocking, is a bit revolutionary. Android has only about 4 quick launch buttons on a screen and couple of widgets. Windows Phone utilizes the entire screen area more efficiently, with option to show sneak previews.
Amazing phone. I mean it is just amazing. It is not that I am using Windows for the first, few months back I bought Lumia 535 an now this one.nnJust one disadvantage, that is camera specs.
New Microsoft Lumia 435 is a great phone in its price segment. It is a budget handset but boasts of features that are usually found on the high end smartphones. Take the integrated Skype for example. I can send and receive messages and video call anytime anywhere and also get to know who is online directly from the phone book. Other than this, the Windows Phone is also loaded with a number of apps like Whatsapp, Facebook, MS Office etc. Infact the 30 GB OneDrive free storage was beyond my expectations. The mass memory is also at 8 GB and supports another 128 GB on the micro SD card. I also love its design and the most enjoyable part is that I can change the covers to different colours whenever I wish by just getting a different one.
Even though its costlier.. Its worth every penny.. Not another laggy buggy crapdroid... Cortana is far more better and intelligent than google now or even siri,,,
