Lumia 535 is the first smartphone from Microsoft without the Nokia name. It is a beautiful / solid looking entry level Windows Phone that packs great specifications for the price! It has an even bigger bigger screen than the Lumia 730 at 5 inches, has a decent Snapdragon 200 quad core processor, 5 MP rear camera, 5 MP wide angle front facing camera and dual SIM capability.

The USB port
The Lumia 535 is phone with good build quality. The polycarbonate body may not be as solid as the Lumia 730 and above, but this one is made out of good materials as well. The screen of Lumia 535 might be even more scratch resistant the the older generation of Nokia Lumia phones at it is protected by Gorilla glass 3. In general in terms of build quality Microsoft retained that durable feel that made Nokia a huge success before. So lets expect the Lumia 535 to last for a long while.

As of the moment...

So far so goooood! I'm enjoying the Lumia Denim, overall smoothness of the phone and the wide angle front camera! It has less bugs compared to the Lumia 730 as well! So in that regard with the combination of the hardware and software installed with this phone, I can directly say to you that this Lumia Phone is definitely the best entry level Windows powered phone in the world right now. We're still exploring the full potential phone and I'll immediately share our findings with you in our full review article. :)
