Nokia Lumia 735 review: Just don't call it a selfie phone


Nokia Lumia. Say goodbye to that phrase, as this is the last Lumia device that we'll review carrying the Nokia name. With the move of Nokia Lumia devices to Microsoft Devices, the Nokia Lumia 735 the last in its line. Sitting alongside its Lumia 830...

Good design and build for the price, great OLED display, replaceable battery with strong performance, rear camera results

Selfie labelling is a little underwhelming, can be slow to navigate at times, puts question mark over Lumia 830

Sitting alongside its Lumia 830 stablemate in terms of power, the Nokia Lumia 735 mixes things up in the camera department, making a case for the presence of these two similar devices. Camera performance from both front and back snappers is good, even...

Nokia Lumia 735 review


Cheap and cheerful - say cheese

Decent front facing camera ; HD Screen ; Strong battery life

Feels a little sluggish ; Frustrating keyboard ; Limited storage space

In order to compete at the lower end of the market, Microsoft has given the Lumia 735 a super powerful 5MP selfie camera. Unfortunately, the rest of this Lumia seems to have been a little overlooked.

Nokia Lumia 735


A good mid-range 4G phone and a selfie specialist

Smart, colourful design ; Good low-light photos ; Great for selfies and group shots ; Bursting with features

Sluggish in some games ; Slightly grainy, oversaturated screen ; No HDR camera mode ; Weak built-in speaker

It also works well when outdoors. Again, it’s not quite as bright as the Moto G 2’s LCD screen, but it handles bright sunlight well and remains useable and the auto brightness system does a good job picking the right setting for the conditions.

Nokia Lumia 735 video review: Selfie smartphone is last to wield Nokia logo


The selfie is one of the biggest trends and phenomenons of the last 12 months and the Lumia 735 is aimed at those sharing their daily outfit and best pout. The phone is one of the mid-range Lumia smartphones and costs £189 which is almost budget.

Nokia Lumia 735 review


It's a time of massive change for Nokia as the ink has finally dried on Microsoft's takeover of the Finnish firm. Although new Microsoft Lumia phones will arrive without the Nokia brand anywhere to be seen, the Lumia 735 and its pricier brother the 830...

The Nokia Lumia 735 is comfy to hold, with colourful, interchangeable cases and a good screen. It doesn't cost much either.

Its camera doesn't impress, its processor doesn't provide enough power for demanding tasks, and its Windows Phone app store still receives little attention from developers.

Although the Lumia 735 doesn't have the best camera, it's colourful, curvy and comfortable, has a good display and an affordable price -- all of which go a long way to making up for it.

Nokia Lumia 735 Windows Phone review


The most fun Nokia on the market, the Lumia 735 really is an ideal smartphone for selfies. At just £189 we can picture many a teenage girl - and boy - adding this great-value Windows Phone to their Christmas list. Given the low- to mid-range price its...

Nokia Lumia 735 Review: In Depth


“But first, let me take a selfie” - lyrics you'd only find in an EDM track with the depth of a kiddie's paddling pool, but indicative of the times we live - this is the age of the selfie and the…

Loaded with features ; Great camera experience ; Fantastic screen ; Stellar battery life

Lacks dedicated shutter button ; Low internal storage ; Poor audio ; Performance varies

It’s almost as if billing the Lumia 735 as a ‘selfie phone’ does it a disservice. There’s no denying that it’s one of the most competent devices in the space for this sort of thing, but it can do and offer so much more.
