Seven things to know about the Microsoft Lumia 535

The Microsoft Lumia 535. The first Lumia Windows Phone to do away with the Nokia badge and be replaced by Microsoft's own. It's an interesting device far beyond its new badge, though. There are plenty of Lumia phones to choose from – and even Windows Phones in general – for the more budget conscious, but the Lumia 535 offers an experience that not all the rest do.

So, if you just picked one up, or you're thinking hard about it, here's seven things you need to know.

The Lumia 535 has 1GB of RAM

Lumia 535

This is important for a number of reasons, not least app support. While better than ever, there are still some apps out there in the Windows Phone Store that just don't support devices with 512MB of RAM. The 535 has 1GB, so it isn't an issue. Windows Phone is still a slick experience on 512MB devices, but in this case more is definitely better.

It's definitely not an improved Lumia 530

Lumia 530

Here's where some of the confusion may arise with Microsoft's choice of name. We now have the Lumia 530 and the Lumia 535 both on sale at the same time and in many cases the same part of the world. But unlike the 630/635 which are basically the same phone but with some improvements – like 4G – the 530 and 535 are not related at all. Confused yet?

The Lumia 535 has a bigger display, more RAM and an LED flash on the camera for starters. Microsoft perhaps could have done something different with the name, but it's certainly more than just a variation on the 530.

There's a removable battery

Lumia 535

For some people a removable battery is an absolute must. Some of the other Lumia devices like the 930 don't have removable batteries. And that can mean carrying around a USB battery pack if you're a heavy user. Not an issue with the 535 as you can hot-swap batteries all day as and when you need to.

A comfort blanket for some. A necessity for others.

Looking good in Denim

Lumia Denim

If you've been floating around the Windows Central homepage of late you'll have seen a lot of talk about Lumia Denim. This is Microsoft's latest and greatest firmware for the Lumia phones – which is separate to the OS despite many older phones receiving Denim and an OS update at the same time.

We all love to have the latest and greatest, but if you're interested in finding out more about Lumia Denim, visit the link below.

Touchscreen fixes

Lumia 535

If you just pulled your new phone out of the box, there's every chance that you'll see some pretty glitchy scrolling at times. There's a known issue with the touchscreen response but the good news is that Microsoft has already begun rolling it out in some areas. It may take a little while to roll out to you, but don't be disheartened.

It will come.

Check your frequencies

Lumia 535

For now, the dual-SIM version of the Lumia 535 is the one you'll most likely see. But it's also not officially launched in several markets which include countries in Europe and North America. As such you might encounter some wonkyness when using one on your local carrier.

The best thing to do is make sure you check out the supported frequency bands (opens in new tab) the Lumia 535 supports and compare them to those your carrier operates on. It's a great phone for the money, but if it won't play nice with your carrier's data signal it's going to become largely useless. So exercise caution.

It will take a 128GB microSD card

microSD card

While they're still pretty expensive, the Lumia 535 is perfectly capable of supporting a 128GB microSD card to expand your total storage. The 8GB you get provided with internally (which is actually less than 8GB thanks to system files and what not) will soon fill up, particularly if you're offlining music and movies to watch on your phone.

With a 128GB microSD card inside, your Lumia 535 can boast more total available storage than Apple's most expensive iPhone. Oh yeah.

  • 8 - No 4G/LTE, which should be standard by now on every phone above 100 dollars, even if it meant an extra 10 bucks. Want fast data, try the 635 instead. Except that one only has 521mb of RAM. In case you're in Asia, try the 636 or 638, basically a 635 with 1gb of RAM that Nokia only sold in China and, now, India. Everyone else, tough luck.
  • 9 - Cheapest Lumia with Front Facing 5MP Camera
    Actually all the extra features from the Lumia 530 in this phone come by sacrificing the Snapdragon 400 for 200. I may sound odd but in real life, 530 may beat 535 in performance. For those getting confused why there is no similarity between the 530 and the 535, 520>530 and 525>535. People who do not have 4G LTE in their country can understand this better.
  • Lumia 530 also has snapdragon 200
  • Yes but the 530 has a 480p display while the 535 has 540.
    And since the graphics processor is the same , in some tasks the 530 will perform better than the 535. Of course it does not mean that 530 is better.
  • lol snapdragon 400 on 530 ignorance
  • 10 - It's a great replacement for the Lumia 520/525/630/635... and the only cheap Windows phone that needs to exist. The dual SIM version I bought from newegg works with H+ connections on AT&T so it's not just your average 3G
  • No. It's not a upgrade from 630. 630 has True Black screen
  • I think you meant ClearBlack display technology...
  • What you said would not be false if the screen meant more than memory and other show stopping aspects. Lacking a ClearBlack display won't stop you from installing Mass Effect, low memory will. The screen type won't eliminate the practicality of Skype, lacking a FFC will. So yes, the 535 is an upgrade.
  • Why do people not know that 630 doesnt have a REAL clearblack display? It might have decent contrast for the price but doesn't have the polarizer filter under the glass.
  • Lumia 620 has the clear black display.Oo yeah!
  • They do indeed. The 630 clear black marketing is misleading.
  • ClearBlack (Pro) = Light coming in
    1] polarizer 2] rotator 45 degrees 3] bouncing back Light coming out
    3] Bouncing back 2] rotating 45 degrees again = 90 degrees now
    1] the same polarizer now having light coming "sideways" = TOTAL BLACK 630 is missing the rotator The front glass might also reflect light, but this is still absolutely fantastic
     
  • 630 & 635 have the quad core snapdragon 400
  • Microsoft Mobile says its quad-band (i.e. global) 2G, but only dual-band 3G on 900 and 2100. Neither frequency is supported by AT&T, or any North American carrier. So I'm not sure how to respond to your statement. Is yours the single-SIM or the dual-SIM variant?
  • Any idea if it would support h+ on tmobile?
  • Just how many regions have 4G LTE there's not even 3G coverage across majority of the countries where this phone is targeted. It's easy to complain
  • I don't care about 4g, totally useless on 1gb data plan... The best entery level phone on the market, the best you can get for 100€ here in europe.
  • Not just Europe. Everywhere. It's an amazing phone for regular use. :)
  • The speed of my download doesn't substantially effect how much I transfer, it just let's me go on to other (non-phone-related) things more quickly. I have a 6GB plan, but stay under 1GB most months, and I have LTE almost everywhere I go (I'm in Canada).
  • Agreed. I rarely use my data connectivity at all; because WiFi is so easily accessible nowadays. So, I really wouldn't be that bummed if it didnt even have a data antenna. But the 5" screen, Gorilla Glass, 1GB RAM, ambient light sensor, dual 5MP cameras, and flash make this an excellent upgrade from my 521. I've had this phone for a couple of weeks now and I am LOVING it!   My only complaint is the touch sensitivity (which isn't awful, just slightly less precise). Apparently a fix is on the way with that, though, so it'll be 100% perfect soon :)
  • This 535 kill my Lumia 625 *sob*
  • The 535 is actually selling very well. I had a chance to visit a retailer here today and he said that they're selling so much that they're short in supply these days, so they're going for about $50 more than their actual price here. I even saw Microsoft Lumia 535 billboard here in a central market, and I'm glad they've finally started marketing in Pakistan.
  • I am really curious how the 635 successor is going to be like, we know it will have a 5mp front camera what about back? What about display? i feel like anything they do will step on the 735 and anything they don't will make it pointless compared to the 535.
  • Note: The camera does not do pinch and zoom!
  • Or have camera button
  • does sliding up to zoom and sliding down to zoom-out don't work? 'cause it's working with my lumia 630.
  • no, it does not. But you can use the App "ProShot" (still for free until January 1st). This App is able to. Maybe the Lumia Camera will be able to do so in the future.
  • Can anyone tell me, WHEN the Fix-Update comes for Dual Sim. I've got my Dual Sim-Phone from Amazon.fr and there's still no Update...!
  • Umm, what fix are you exactly talking about sir? Not sure what to answer.
  • Phone: Lumia 535, Dual Sim. Problem: Touchscreen Fix: not available yet... :-(.
  • Uh oh... That one... Umm, just a couple of days back I read an article which said the update was already out for some phones. And for the ones like 735 and supposedly 535 is due in January 2015. Dont worry. I know what I read, it will be out soon. ;)
  • Thanks! 
  • No, that's not right. I bought it several days ago and installed the touchscreen-fix update with toggle cellular on/off. But still have the same problem with touchscreen (even WindowCentral had posted the news about the touchscreen-fix update for Lumia 535).
  • I never said I read it here on windows phone central. It was on some other site for Microsoft news. And there is a new update that's gonna come.
    Lol, Microsoft may be slow, but not ignorant. ;)
  • Well, do you have the Single-Sim-Version? Most of these Phones (SS) received an update.
  • I got the update on my dual-sim 535 here in China. Issue not completely solved but improved. One thing i did to "solve" the problem for me: i choose to have the 3 navigation buttons always visible, so that i tend to use less the lower portion of the display. I know it's a "patch", but works for me..
  • Hotswap a battery? You cant hot swapping powersources of a phone not without powering it down and booting it again. Thats not a hotswap ;)
  • Well, you could pull the battery while the units on. We've all had or phones decide to restart for no reason, they still work.
  • And I've gotten corruptedd files from doing just that, and ended up having to reinstall a program and restore backed up data. Not pretty in some cases. In most cases, you'll get lucky, but not always.
  • Funny you mention corrupt files. My external HD forced me to reformat due to corrupted files. Lost Associate's through PhD work. Thank goodness for one drive.
  • @Permanently Banned:
    Well, you COULD pull the battery of your running device, but unless you are quicker than the Flash, your device won't keep running while you do...
    Which is the definition of "hotswapping".
    Hotswapping is usually achieved via a secondary unit of the swapped part still in place, which is clearly not the case for the battery of your standard mobile phone.
  • Oh sure it is. You don't know what your talking about.
  • I thought Lumia 735 has a removable battery. only Lumia 930 has an internal battery.
  • So did I! Didn't know my 930 has got a small bro out there...
  • Lumia 735 have removable battery. I bought one for my colleague last weeks.
    Tomorrow another colleague of mine ask me to buy him a Lumia 535.
  • Lumia 1520, 1020, 930, 928, 925, 920
  • Is the display better than the 530?
  • Much more better than that! Especially view angle
  • This is becoming a mess. Now we have the entry-level L535, with better capabilities than the not-so-entry-level L635. Also, we have a mid-level L735 with better front-facing camera than the not-so-mid-level L830. Then, we also have a high-level L930 which is buggier than its predecessor L920. I hope MS fix this, and reorganize the whole Lumia universe into 3 (well defined) levels: entry, mid and high.
  • A serious mess. Seems like a waste of resources as well. A simplified lineup of phones would save money in manufaturing and maintaining/updating.
  • If the 830 would work with Hey Cortana I'd keep my 920 as a spare device. Give me a phone with SD card, Hey Cortana, wireless charging, 2GB ram, PureView camera, 1080 display, 4.7" to 5.25" size, LTE that work on ATT and I'm happy. The 830 is a very nice phone that would be almost perfect with an upgraded processor. The resolution is good enough.
  • You're basically asking for a smaller version of the 1520.  
  • you just described a $500-600 phone ... 
  • I totally agree.  There too many phone and you don't know what phone does what. All you need is three phones and make them the best phones.
  • Exactly.. They are screwing things up.
  • 3 "best" phones for who?  there are like only 10 current models of lumias around the globe ... it's very easy to go to microsoft's website and look at the ones available in your market then read their specs ... there are also a ton of resources on the net like the one you are reading now breaking everything down for everyone.
  • Definitely an issue.  Higher price should equal better features.   All the premium models should have an SD card slot. Any new phone with a greater number than 735 should have just as good front camera Also, can we do away with the 800 X 480 resolution except for the lowest end phone? The next entry should compare to the Moto G with 720p resolution, LTE, front camera The next entry should be the premium with a 5 inch screen and awesome cameras The final entry should be the phablet which is basically the premium specs with a huge screen So I'm thinking 4 models.  What does everyone else think?    
  • L535 is for younger crowd (selfies, bigger screen, compatibility with every game in store, cheap). L630/635 is generally for more matured users who don't wanna spend lot of bucks on phone (compact size, smaller but better screen, 720p video recording (vs 480p), a lot better battery endurance, no lag with basic operations).
  • Lumia 735 has definitely a removable battery! Contrary to what you say that it doesn't.
  • Your avatar! It's adorable. <3
  • It says a lot about my current situation. :-) I would love to switch to Windows Phone 8.1 but I just can't do that yet because of some apps I use that aren't available in WP.
  • I see. It's a trouble with a lot of people. Those who say there's no more app gap in WP, are the ones who's been using WP as their first smartphone, I think. Lets wait and watch what Windows 10 can bring on to the table. Last hope :')
  • Yup! I hope it'll have the NBA app so I can finally watch NBA games on my Windows phone! :-)
  • it would be berfect with price about 200 euro... not 300!! this is a mid-end phone... still waiting for discounts- in Poland u can buy 830 for about 1250 PLN
  • Actually i want to ask to anyone who has updated their 535 that the update fixed the touchscreen problem or not ???
  • Judging from the responses in the forum, the update to fix the touch screen issue doesn't seem to do much to fix the problem. Very disappointing, because it could have been a great Windows Phone.
  • Just got my gf's one week L535 from NCC, because there's a problem with the camera
    And for the first time use it, the touchscreen is very dissapointing
    Well maybe price = quality
  • What's the problem with the touchscreen mate?
  • Wait, 735 has a user replaceble battery, I've got one right here in front of me. plz correct that.
  • We bought 2 Lumia 535 today.. Its awesome phone.. Cheers.!
  • I want that 128gb micro SD support on a flagship phone. I'd be frigging set!
  • How much were u paid by MS to promote l535?
  • Even if so, does it matter to you by any case?
  • "How much were u paid by Google to put a comment like this?"
    No need to reply for that... We both know that the above statement is as correct as your comment. I am curious though.. What kind of review do you expect from a windows fan blog like this???
  • Hahaha. I guess the iDude was set off into an iRage by the comparison of the L535 128gig capacity with the costliest iDevice out there. But the statement is an incontrovertible fact, isn't it? So what's with all the iRresponsible iRage from an iDevuce wielding iRobot? Hohohoho.
  • devices like the 735... don't have removable batteries Mine does. That's one of the reasons I bought it.
  • Sounds like a cool phone
  • It doesn't have Microsoft Camera.
  • It has..... But you can activate only from settings.
  • And use it from notification center
  • I've been using it for a week now and it's been great. Really loving my new phone.
    The only thing bothering me is the touching issue, albeit it's not too much but sometimes it's annoying!
    Apparently cv middle east will not get the touch update anytime soon!
    All hail microsoft!! :-)
  • Pretty sure that the 735 has a removable battery.
  • Maybe no, the 730 has
  • Yes it has... This was sent from one
  • Its the same
  • But if I have better RAM, the multitasking will be better?
  • Yes, much better. However, I believe Microsoft has made some restrictions in multi-tasking in Windows Phones because of which you can't experience true multi-tasking as on iOS or Android. If you put an app in background for several minutes, on resuming the app, you'll be greeted with "resuming..." or sometimes "loading....". It happens because the OS suspends the app while in background (consumes almost no virtual memory) to focus better on the app currently being used, and other system services. It's an OS problem that can't be completely fixed with RAM upgrade. But yes, those "loading..." and "resuming..." screens are seen more often in the following order: 2GB RAM < 1GB RAM < 512MB RAM
  • This^^ I hate that about Windows Phone, don't decide for me Microsoft. If I want apps running in the background all day, then let me make that decision on my phone not you.
  • Well there's a list of the background apps in the Battery Saver
    Where you can make some apps to stay in the background even when Battery=Low
    So Microsoft DOES give you a choise after all. :-)
  • Lumia 535 bulls**t phone. Multi-touch problem, screen touch problem via scrolling.. I got an update from MS as critical update. But still nothing much improved. Please don't buy.. I have L730 which is much much better than 535 considering the price. L535 buggy phone
  • Yes, and apps like beamer need 1gb to run. I wish this app worked with my 630. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • 730s got a replacable battery.
  • MS really needs to work on their phones.... There's no Lumia which has a wow factor in it
  • I
    hate to say this but 1) u get what u pay for altogether because there
    are more expensive phones.2) The specs are improving, firmware
    updates are providing features but eventually it has degraded the
    smooth WP experience. Saying this after a year with 520 after denim
  • I've no use for a removable battery. Use any space for an easily removable battery for other things like wireless charging.
  • the battery is not hot swappable, hot swappable means swapping while the device is turned on
  • Upgrade or not is all dependent on the user. For me not having clearblack is not with the other trade-offs. I live somewhere verry sunny and I want that type of screen. I do not game much so the RAM is no issue, and I can live with the camera set up on the 635. All in all it depends on what is best for the individual user. :)
  • To me I'd say the 735 is the obvious upgrade from 630 & 635
  • Low - 535
    Mid - 830
    High - 1520
  • Yes this[^ Go Kobe. . MVP every year.
  • The mid-range device is the L735 :)
  • 730 / 735 *
  • Things are going to seem unsettled in the lumia family for a while longer. Microsoft is exploring the market. They are throwing phones out there to see what sells. What specs at what price point. Even they dont know how things will eventually work out. If the 535 is an example of the baseline phone the future looks bright for the whole ecosystem. At this time of year the market belons to Apple. I suspect a new top tier phone will appear around the time Samsung releases their new S class phone.
  • L535 is a bad phone. Touch screen issues. No multi touch. Play any fps like dead zombies target and o e will know. No hd recording not even 720p. This is a bulls**t phone from Microsoft.
  • I think the
    person with 735 doesn't know how to open it
  • That would be me. Looking at it on my desk. It's been a long week :/
  • I'm getting mixed messages as to whether this works with T-Mobile or AT&T HSPA (3G). Some say no, 2G only, others say yes. A 2G only phone is worthless to me, I wish there was some verification that you'll get at least 3G speeds with this.
  • everything i can find says no ... this phone can only do 3g on 2100mhz and 900mhz .... ATT and T-mobile don't have 3G on either of those bands
  • Please do not buy L535.. Serious touch issues. I bought this and now I am repenting over my decision. Multi-itouch is also not working. I got a update as critical update from MS but still problem didn't got solved. Please do not buy. Bad cheap product from Microsoft
  • Can you please stop making your statement over and over, it's not helping anyone, just makes you look immature and angry.
    We understand you had a bad experience, thank you for sharing, now stop lol.
  • Is 535 is better than 520
  • Except the touch screen it is better in every aspect. And also there isn't pinch zoom in the default camera.
  • Except in the rear camera department. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • My God.........MICROSOFT - PLEASE DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR NAMING OF PHONES.......520, 530, 535, 620, 630, 635, 638, 730, 735, 820, 830, 920, 925, 929 (ICON), 930, 1020, 1320, 1520   #1 - WHY ARE THERE SO MANY MODELS - HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY MAKE MONEY MANUFACTURING SO MANY MODELS #2 - THIS JUST CAUSES CONFUSION   With the Billions of dollars they spend on marketing each and every year, you would think that they could come up with a decent naming standard.  Maybe for Windows 10 phones.     
  • It is the same thing BlackBerry did. There were so many numbers, and each carrier had a different number based on what they wanted or antenna type. It was very confusing to the non BlackBerry user! I can see the same thing happening here... Hi I'm looking for a 520... Oh you must mean the 530... No I thought the 520 is what I want.. Well there is a 520, its a little on the old side but you can get a 530 or a 535, then there is the 630 and 635 which is a little different but not much. However if you want something better then there is the 7xx, 8xx and 9xx lines of phones.... :/ totally lost...
  • True.
  • EHHHH Can you come up with something better then,maybe then perhaps call other manufacturers and tell them the same story ........ Apple iphone 1 2 3 4 5 6 BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING.. Dont even get me started on Samsung. i bid you a happy new year..
  • Apple mainly uses singular numbers, much less confusing. Now Samsung does have a lot of models under the "Galaxy" title that are are region specific, still a little confusing but its not a bunch of numbers to get Los in. I like it when phones have names like Evo, Trophy, Bold, Classic, Focus, Moto X... I find names to stick in the head more as a branding strategy than numbers.
  • N 535 have a sucking rear camera
  • It isn't all that bad. But I think the front camera is better than the rear camera :P
  • @vibhu: I use my lumia 535 to take a pix on a wedding ceremony and it was great. Some like u have a hardware problem.
  • And where is the tap fixes for 1520???
  • Amazing, so many models and I don't want to buy any of them to replace my daughters 520. Is it just me or is the quality of the ms phones getting worse with each new model? My girlfriend has a 930 but it really is inferior to my one year old 1520. If my 1520 died today I would not know which ms phone to replace it with. I hope ms clean up their act soon. There simply is too much better quality and cheaper android phone competition.
  • This was their first one, everything else that has been released was in the pipeline from Nokia before acquisition, and this may have been a short term solution to better the 5xx line until the engineers can get out a better device. It takes time to design and test these things out.
  • I hope you are right. I don't want to switch to android or ios.
  • @adbolleman:
    Who would stop you from getting (another) 1520 if you need to replace yours?
  • That's not the point I'm trying to make. Why should I want to buy a one year old technology phone if there are newer better cheaper alternatives? Just because ms is incapable of keeping up?
  • I hope as well that Microsoft can make some amazing device. I try to keep the perspective that they are new to the phone and tablet hardware in comparison to the other large companies. It can also be challenging to change the mindset of the engineers on what they have been and getting them into the new. I also like to think that MS is leading the charge in design. All the other players went to a flat more metro type on their software, something MS has been doing longer. My guess is we will see a solid devise with Windows 10. I'm sure they do not want another L900/920 issue on their hand!
  • @adbolleman:
    The "problem" is not Microsoft not being ABLE to keep up, but their sad strategy to reserve all (hardware) innovations to Windows 10's release.
    Which is awfully stupid.
    They promised all Windows Phone 8 devices will be upgraded to Windows 10, so there's no reason to hold back hardware now.
    No reason, besides their well-proven formula to successful failure, also known as the Zune-strategy (build desirable hardware, don't tell consumers and, most importantly, hold it back from market and consumer hands indefinitely).
  • Still need the Netflix app to work on the denim software
  • It still not available easily for purchase
  • Still not convinced to go for it, sticking to my L520 Denim :-)
  • I absolutely love this phone. I ordered it from Germany Amazon and it arrived via UPS on 22nd December in time for Xmas. My daughter received it to replace her £30 530, and she got it on her fave green colour. Just waiting for the release of the flip case. The phone does not bend like an iphone 6. It is well built. The screen is lovely. Hardly feels like a budget phone, it came to £102.48 including UPS delivery from Germany. The 5" screen is a delightful size. Love the pop up navigation bar. You can set it to flick up to show and hide and maximise your screen. This phone was a delight to set up. I added a 32GB micro SD and put her favourite music on it. She loves the selfie camera and the speakers are really loud. This is a premium phone at a budget price and is perfect for your teenager or student or beginner smartphone user. I am upgrading my 925 to a 830 next year but for Emma the 535 is an amazing upgrade to her iphone 4. It runs Preview for Developers and she has several apps I created including one to support her school and GCSE work. And an Ultimate Homestuck app. Roll on more Microsoft phones. There is no 4G in our area, so not a problem. Happy New Year everyone.
  • It has glance?
  • The update doesn't fix the touch.
  • i just bought a lumia 535, it is a great device except for the touch screen issue which can be either over-sensitive or unresponsive.
  • please this is off topic: i want to use my favorite music as my ringtone. can someone please direct me.
  • Just copy the music you want to use into the directory "ringtone" (it must be mp3 or wma format)
    Then your pieces will appear selectable into settings-> ringtones (or something like that (I do not have English settings on my phone so I can't exactly tell you...))
  • Or you can get "ringtone maker" app from the store. In addition to helping in copying your favourite music to the ringtone directory, the app equally helps you to select the START and STOP points on your ringtone.
  • Latest video shows that the latest firmware that is supposed to fixed the touch issue. The phone had been reset after updating. Did Microsoft do anything at all? http://quickvid.org/watch.php?v=vRZQI8DYTt-
  • Touchscreen fixes?!? Really? Even after the fix my girlfriend's phone is pretty frustrating, especially the bottom part of the phone. Come on guys, be honest: we all love MS (I'm waiting for the mid-range new MS branded device) but the touchscreen of the 535 is pretty fuxxed.
  • The touch issue on the Microsoft Lumia 535 is not fixed with the latest software update. Hold off your purchase for now until the touch issue on the Microsoft Lumia. 535 is resolved. The video shows Microsoft Lumia 535 had been updated, reset and the touch issue remains.

  • If you guys think that 535 is not a reasonably good phone then quit yapping and go buy a 730.
  • bro,we yapping after we buy that phone..if we know the touch problem,swear god,I'll not buying this phone. lucky we tell you all our experience with 535. for MS,we have big question for you,if this touch issue is not about software but hardware problem,what will you do to us?? ( event after update,my 535 still have touch problem,the update just improve denim on this phone,not fix the touch )
  • I bought a ATT version 635 and it is great. I wish it had a front facing camera like this 535. I got the 635 unlocked and now I can travel with it. When I go on vacation I will use it as my main phone. I also purchased an 810 used and put delveoper perview on it. It is great with the 1 GB of ram but mic head phones do not work on it. I hope Microsoft makes a flagship next year for Windows Phone 10. I may actually give up my Iphone 5C and upgrade to Windows fully if that happends. 
  • They should really work on the touch of 535, it sucks so badly, so oversensitive that I feel my phone is haunted haha, it starts typing by itself....
  • Folks Microsoft is now in the process of rebranding their Nokia Lumia smart phones to Microsoft Lumia smartphones. the Nokia Lumia's 920, 925, 928, Icon/930, 1020, 1520 will all bre replaced with Microsoft Logo Lumia smart phone Versions. if you like Nokia branded Windows smart phones buy them NOW because you probablly wont see anymore made after spring 2015 after that it's ALL Microsoft Lumia smart phones. the hint is the newest coming Windows smart phone is the Microsoft Lumia 435 which has specs simular to a Nokia lumia 520. It may well be Microsoft relacement for the Nokia Lumia 520
  • believe me, this is HARDWARE problem.. how can any software update repairing the hardware problem? we waiting MS... this is not about money,i know its cheap,but the problem is why you sell the phone before you try and test the condition, now.. we are the victims. we demanded responsibility !!!
  • But its screen ppi density low 220ppi otherwise is a best windows phone
  • I heard that Microsoft Lumia 535 supports android apps? is that true? if it is true than i buy this mobile today please tell me !
  • I'm confused with buying either Lumia 535 or 640. But, since 535 is Rs. 2000 (India) cheaper than 640 & the 640 is little "out of" my budget. I've read many reviews & watched many review-videos about the Lumia 535 wherein many people say that this IS a continuing problem with the touch, even after the Denim update. And, I also saw a video where after alomst 2 months of usage, the phone becomes slow & sluggish in response, that is, many-a-times the phone responds only after touching an option for 5-6 times. SO, I confused in buying which one of the two. Please advice.
