  • Touch screen issues...
  • Solved
  • Nope... Have one and the touch screen still goes crazy even after all those updates...
  • A hard reset will help the update seat properly
  • It is solved with new phones. It was a hw error. Phones produced after march are working great.
  • How do I know if the one they are selling me was built after march?
  • And what about people who bought it before March?
  • They should jump in a cup of water.
  • Chullu bhar pani men dub maro...
  • Hahaha lol
  • Lol
  • Nope. Got mine after March. There was an update and after that I too got the issues
  • Not Solved
  • Bought one on Amazon a month back.... No problems at all
  • Crap device in particular.
  • 540 is better...
  • I would rather say 525 is still better than this.
  • Yupp 525 was better.
  • It's absolutely a BIG fail device.
  • This should have been killed off before the 1520. I'll miss that sweet 3k mAh battery.
  • It's a good device for the money, but it's still better to spend more and get 640 which has no issues (at least not mine)
  • A device is never good when it doesn't work as how it should be, no matter how cheap it is.
  • Love it .... Currently using it but please do something for Project My Screen app !! Its not working :/ !!
  • It works with the latest version of the app here:
  • Thnx Its works !! Thanx Alot Abhishek !! 
    W8tng for windows 10 Update !! :)
  • Keep dreaming
  • Welcome :) I'm actually waiting for GDR2 news...
  • I love my 535. The only time i have touch screen issues is when it is charging. Unplug and no issues
  • Same in my 520
  • the 620 has the same problem
  • Supply chain is failing, where is the 640 lte dual sim? Coming soon, after freebies are gone?
  • Depends which market you're in. For example, the UK isn't getting the dual-SIM AFAIK.
  • I got one buy from France Microsoft Store to get dual sim LTE
  • Anyone who's planning to get this phone for whatever reason, DON'T. touch issues is still not fixed and I think will never be fixed cause it's hardware problem not software problem like what Microsoft has been saying.
  • Its fixed, my friends are using it without any touch problem after February update
  • It isn't fixed yet. I guess it's a hardware issue
  • Leave this shit and begin releasing the 540 already !
  • Where's the god damn 640xl?! Can't believe I'm waiting for a low end phone like that to finally come out...jesus fuck!
  • Bought an unlocked 535 recently for my son from Microsoft for £60 on their Amazon store. A 'deal of the day' thing. He's been using it as a tablet ever since (no SIM) & it's been perfect for him. No complaints at all.
  • No Complaints? He must be like one year old
  • It's a great device, shut up.
  • My daughter is also very happy with her unlocked 535 as her first smartphone. Only downside is that the official flip cover/case can fall off quite easily, even if only dropped onto carpet from a couple of feet. No damage though and I just put it back on. No problems with screen sensitivity either, since software was updated.
  • Lumia 730 still the best Lumia at every point.. The Best of Nokia and sadly The Last :(
  • Lumia 535 work great with WP 8.1 GDR2, I have no touch issues with that. But still like 525 better.
  • 540 and 640 are better...
  • I would take the dualsim one :)
  • Lumia 640 XL is the best phone Microsoft ever made till date. Hands down
  • Hands up !
  • Hands Juggling!
  • Touch screen issues!
  • Do not get this, I'm regret of getting this as the touch screen issue still exists and screen are not sharp. Better get the LM640.
  • Touch issues have been solved on this device I owned two of them and had no problems. I think it is a excellent phone and absolute steal at this price!
  • This would be a good device to use as a 2nd phone for windows 10 insider
  • Lumia 535 is just a failure...
  • Yes, it has above 20% market share of WP in India within five months
  • U saying that market share is increased?
  • Yeah it is 2nd to 520 in market share...better do your research before you toss around words like failure...
  • No reason to buy a 535 when the 540 is out.
  • I've been too busy over the past 3 months. Once I'm chanced, I would return this phone to MS customer support and demand a full refund.
  • You're gonna return something after over 3 months?
  • It's still under warranty isn't it?
  • Me too
  • cool deal
  • More low end stuff.Microsoft so need some high end phones.yawn Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • Good phone for the price, my mother got one last time it was on the £50 offer. For a cheap useable everyday all rounder phone for someone who isn't a heavy user or spec head the 535 is perfectly fine.
  • Camera button? Bring them back, please!
  • Only pureview devices have the camera button.
  • Up here in Canada, we get screwed. there are no deals, carriers are thieves. Terrible plans, always behind in technology.
    Stay away from Canada, when it comes to phones.
    Thank you all carriers. Bell/Rogers/TELUS..,, you're all aholes.
