Microsoft Lumia 535-Lots of Mobile Value-for-Money [Test]

We have tested the super cool budget-mobile Lumia 535 with large screen and small price.

It’s like mobiles, as with art: taste is not the same at all, but you go “bare” after a cheap product, and you can see through the fingers with a few imperfections, then crazy very mobile to download in Microsoft’s Lumia 535.

First Microsoft Mobile

At first glance it looks like many of the other 535 Lumia Lumia’ is, but soon you will find out that “Nokia” is replaced with “Microsoft” – the phone is the first “real” Microsoft Lumia-mobile, however, follows up on the positive measures from Nokia-time.

Design and conception

Lumia 535 has the same design lines as many other Lumia´ is in the budget-end: Round soft corners and full cube on the colors. Or in other words; it chooses you, for your phone are available both with high-gloss cover in screaming pang-colors, or in more subdued versions with matte black, white and shades of gray.

I have previously complained about bagcovers with high-gloss finish, as these have an exceptional ability to absorb grease from hands and fingers. It gets very fast the phones look like something a 1-year-old has use as toys and it seems I’m not fat.

Choose you anyway a screaming high-gloss variant, so don’t come and say that you weren’t warned.


Monitor – 5 inch glory

It is rare to find a budget Mobile for about 8-900 crowns with a decent screen. Nevertheless, Microsoft has managed both to put a 5 inch screen in Lumia 535, and it is actually to keep out to look at for long periods of time.

The screen is 960 x 540 qHD IPS LCD with a pixel density of 220 ppi – it sounds probably not as the best in the whole world, but looking away from the dry numbers and turns his gaze toward the screen is the experience different positive. Resolutions are not the best, but since the screen is great, it makes the overall experience more enjoyable.

A little nuisance by the screen, however, is that the picture is not very sharp while scrolls through a longer screen. It annoys my eye.

Overall, however, the screen is a positive feature of Lumia 535.

Camera with maximum benefit

I have in the past been after the manufacturers of smartphones when they chose to save on the built-in camera. Why were my expectations nor big to Lumia 535 since I could read me a primary camera of 5 megapixels, which is now the lowest common denominator.

Surprised, and far more optimistic, I am been, after I picked up the phone in use.

The primary camera on the back is true only at 5 megapixels, but it will be helped really well on the way of the built-in flash and auto focus.

Microsoft has made every effort to provide users with the best conditions, when to record images.

The result is then also “ik ´ inconsiderable” – which you can judge by a look in the gallery.

But not enough with a primary camera of 5 megapixels, so Microsoft has also installed a 5 megapixel front camera, which makes the phone an ideal chose for selfie-happy Mobile users.

Performance – Windows 8.1 and 1 GB RAM

Lumia 535 comes with the latest version of Windows Phone 8, powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor with 1 GB RAM 200 and a total internal memory of 8 GB.

The operating system is running smoothly and fluently, and the fact that the phone has got 1 GB of RAM instead of the usual 512 MB, which is often seen in cheap phones, is very important, as many games in the Windows Store requires just 1 GB in order to be able to be installed and running at peak performance.

The internal memory of 8 GB, however, can quickly get ben to go on, so an extension with a microSD card is almost a must. Lumia 535 can be expanded with up to 128 GB.

One thing which personally irritates me is the lack of physical touch-buttons below the screen. The navigation is done via buttons on the screen, and as a starting point, they disappear after a short time, so that each time to swipe up from the bottom to get them out.

However, it is possible, via settings, to get them to become more permanent in the bottom of the screen, and it can only recommend.

Battery — need to be in the charger in the evening

Microsoft Lumia 535 has been used very intensively during this test, and it has taken its clear traces on battery life. The battery at 1.905 mAh have had use for artificial respiration, when I reached around the evening meal at 19 o’clock.

I’ve been using the phone a lot during the day for gaming, internet, email, video playback and much more.Do you have a not so great need i have no doubt that the battery will last significantly longer, and certainly for most of a day.


Conclusion – So very mobile for as little

Lumia 535 is in the cheap end – exactly is the seen to 799 dollars, but most places are the to about 870 kroner.

With such a price tag, one can not expect much, but Microsoft has definitely managed to get the most pressure out of Lumia 535.

The screen on the 5 inch is a surprisingly positive feature, and along with a 5 megapixel camera and 1 GB of RAM, making it the phone into a prime candidate for “this year’s budget mobile”. A title like Lumia 630 ran with the previous year.

But where is it saved, one can rightly ask themselves? Well, a good enough on 5 inch screen, but the solution is not perfect. Lumia 535 also has “only” 3 g and it is of course not to make it the world’s fastest, when to retrieve video and other heavy from the net.

Anyway, Microsoft has been an extraordinarily positive 535 Lumia acquaintance, and with the crazy low price in mind, get Lumia 535 deserved 5 out of 6 stars.
