Quick question. This or the 635?
All replies appreciated. Thanks

If you want 4g the 635, if you're a 14 year old girl pulling duck face selfies the 535.

I'm really pleased with mine. I like the Windows phones, and this is the cheapest one I have got (and the best spec too).

I have the 520 at the moment with contract ending in the summer - tempted to buy this sim free!

Good value for some ..... but the lack of apps is really holding back windows phones and tablets - I have both Android and Windows tablets and hardly ever use the windows one because of the lack of apps - i guess the same is trues of phones; correct me if I'm wrong

this is why I ended up back with my android phone I used to have a windows phone but I couldn't agree more with the lack of apps such a shame!

The only app I wish I had is a nationwide building society one.

There's not many mainstream one's missing anymore.

lack of popular apps ? ... the very few apps missing for popular services theres in most cases a far better third party app, if you are looking for apps for less popular services eg fastfood firms/websites then youre right theres probably not a windows app for that.

For me the issue is lack of flagship winphone handsets (the best are really little better than MotoG standard) and MS has added little functionality to WinPhone over the last few years - its looking functionaly tired and needs some TLC

I got one of these for my mother for xmas ;-) so i guess i voted with my wallet ! .. for me personally I'll probably bite the bullet and get an iphone or a Galaxy S6 next if theres no souped up/slimmed down Nokia 1020 coming soon

it will be. 735 is a better phone by quite a margin, but is another £40-50.

There`s a legion of consumers not interested in 1000`s of apps, a few basic ones will suffice most of us. Microsoft will have to get the pricing right in order to steal any of Moto G`s deserved share of the budget market here. It `ll be extremely competitive at about £80 or less with good reviews as back up.

I had the 635 previously, and much prefer this one - Bigger screen, slightly thinner, camera on back and front and a flash :)

Yes, it is sim free. I'm not sure about the 735 - I think it is the higher up model but with a price to match.

If this could do the same as android in terms of apps such as skybaports super 6, games and other features it would probably start taking chunks of the market, but still too far behind with software :(

How does this rate against a 2nd gen Moto G? My mother in law is after a smart phone with a large screen and doesn't want to pay anymore than ~£130.

Here is a side by side comparison (in terms of technical specification) of the two. Remember though that the Moto G is more expensive though at around £125.

Absolutely. Very few you want aren't on WP any more.
Even Candy Crush is now available which was a big "NO !" for many !
The app argument isn't valid anymore

The hardware is not as good on the Lumia 535. This doesn't really matter that much though as it should be mainly a choice of which mobile OS. Here's a brief summary comparison (mine) >

Android >

Pros:

Massive amount of apps
Customisation - simply on another level and impossible on the other two competing platforms WP8 and IOS.
Widgets - don't exist on the other platforms, can provide plenty of "at a glance" data from apps directly on each homescreen
Windowed applications - some specific apps can float in their own window and be positioned anywhere on the homescreen. Floating calculator, floating browser. Useful stuff such as Camsam Plus - floating speed camera warnings, which can be made to float over the top of another app such as a sat nav app.


Cons:

User interface is nowhere near as polished as the other two competing platforms, still feels like a bit of a mess.
Lag - Meaning delay in operation of the system and also in loading apps, needs heavy duty hardware to keep it running fast

WP8 >

Pros:

Very fast and slick
Simple and effective user interface
Feels fast in use and is fast even on modest hardware.
Awesome Microsoft Office integration
People Hub - all in one place for social media

Cons:

Customisation like IOS is almost non existent
Lack of apps - If you migrate from Android you'll almost certainly find apps you used that don't yet exist on this platform.
Just with IOS no one's figured out how to do notifications better than on Android, so they just copied them.
No widgets - not possible due to the design of the system user interface
Forced to do everything as Microsoft intended - really it's a lack of customisation. This also can be a pro if you like simple and fast.

It's more what you're used to, if you've migrated from Android, and been a moderate to heavy user then you'll miss apps that don't exist on WP8.

On cheap low end hardware it's hard to beat how well windows phone os works and the apps situation is improving fast in my opinion.

android phones get slow and clunky, comparing specs dont tell the full story, a low or middle tier windows phone is quicker than a low or middle tier android phone

imo windows will be much easier for an older person to operate too

android has more apps, but windows has all the major apps now, i dont think an older person is bothered with 100 extra fart apps

635 - 4G + decent size 4.5" screen
535- Bigger 5" display+ 1GB ram (better performance + marginally more apps)+flash on primary camera + 5 MP secondary camera

I'd go for 535 as flash does make a difference when it comes to taking photos . If you're more into downloading lots of data-heavy stuff than maybe 635 would be better for you.
