Microsoft Lumia 435 review


A different breed of Windows Phone

Mostly snappy OS navigation ; Good value ; Fun, friendly design

Dim, low-resolution screen ; Processor stumbles easily ; Battery inconsistent

The Microsoft Lumia 435 is an odd little phone. Immediately recognisable as a Lumia, given its bold colours and polycarbonate body, yet boasting sharper lines, a more boxy design and a Microsoft logo, this is a different breed of Windows Phone.

Microsoft Lumia 435 review: Best smartphone you can buy under £50


The Microsoft Lumia 435 is the best phone you can buy under £50, even accepting the tired old Windows Phone apps argument. Bottom of Microsoft's line-up and just £49.99 on PAYG it's by no means a great phone, but for first-time or light users it wipes...

Microsoft Lumia 435


The Microsoft Lumia 435 is a compact, feature-rich budget 4-inch mobile for first time smartphone owners, or for those who want a simple smartphone at a low price. It's just £59 SIM-free, or less than £50 on pay-as-you-go – it's about as cheap as...

Lumia Camera Apps ; Cortana Voice Assistant ; Swappable back covers ; Good value

Average battery performance ; Low resolution screen ; Uncomfortable form factor ; Noticeable lag

Incredible value for money ; Compact and lightweight ; Feature packed

Microsoft Lumia 435 review


For its latest budget smartphone Microsoft has aimed to keep the price as low as possible while still delivering a quality Windows Phone experience. But how low is too low?

Bright, sturdy shell with changeable covers, Microsoft extras, low price, decent battery

Sub-HD screen, slow processor, low-res camera, no 4G

The Microsoft Lumia 435 is a basic, budget phone, and offers a cut-price introduction to the Windows Phone experience. You get Microsoft extras like Office apps, Mix Radio and HERE Drive +, but you're saddled with a slow processor and so-so camera. The...

Обзор смартфона Microsoft Lumia 435 DS (RM-1069)


Самый дешевый Windows Phone смартфон в мире, замена Lumia 520 – чего ждать от бюджетного смартфона на WP? Очевидный ответ – ничего

С точки зрения качества передачи звука во время разговора, это стандартное решение от Nokia – неплохое, но и не хорошее – обычное. Используется один микрофон. Виброзвонок остался тихим, его гарантированно пропускаешь.

Microsoft Lumia 435 Smartphone Review


Windows Phone X. Microsoft's Lumia 435 is an inexpensive Windows Phone. But wait a minute; isn't the Lumia 535 already available? We check whether Microsoft's smallest Lumia smartphone makes any sense.

Compact size, Smooth operating system, Comprehensive software additions, Good memory equipment, Usable battery runtimes, Decent speaker, Replaceable battery, Cover can be changed, Case gets hardly warm

Bad quality of the microphone, Thick chassis, Low gaming performance, Mediocre camera equipment, Low-contrast display, Unreliable GPS sensor

If you want to pay only 100 Euros (~$112) for your next smartphone, you will have to live with some restrictions: The Microsoft Lumia 435 cannot keep up with the much better Lumia 535, which costs slightly more than 100 Euros. The screen and the...

Microsoft Lumia 435 continues the starter smartphone trend


What's the difference between the Microsoft Lumia 435 here and the Microsoft Lumia 532? Not much. Both are the same size and have nearly identical hardware components. They also come in the same colors. The main variations, really, come out in the...

The 432 costs €69, which works out to about $81 or £54, while in Australia it's AU$129. For more hardware details, check out CNET's Microsoft Lumia 532 preview.

Microsoft Lumia 435 Review: A Budget Windows Phone With Budget Features


We've taken a look at a few budget smartphones here at Techaeris lately, alternatives to pricier flagship phones that cost hundreds of dollars. We've also taken a look at a couple of Microsoft's Lumia devices while still bearing the Nokia name, and we...

The Lumia 435 is definitely on the low end of the budget category and isn’t a smartphone that is going to blow you away, or even impress you much. That being said, for the price it is a great alternative for someone wanting a cheaper device that does...
