Reviews for the Microsoft Lumia 435

75% Microsoft Lumia 435 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
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.
Microsoft Lumia 435 vs Lumia 532: Low profile
Source: GSM Arena English
Microsoft Lumia 435 and Lumia 532 are the lowest reaching additions to the already rich in entry level devices Lumia series. With the WindowsPhone OS increasingly targeting budget-conscious users there is some very solid logic behind this. But while playing it safe and not walking off the beaten path might pay dividends in the short run, we are not sure it's the best decision for Microsoft in the long run. The company would certainly like to return to the premium segment eventually, but focusing so hard on the race to the bottom runs the risk of making everyone think of WP as a budget-only platform even if it helps retain some market share.

What it all boils down to, however, is price. The Lumia 520 became the most popular Windows Phone handset not because of its obvious superiority or wonderful good looks, but because of its price. By the end of its shelf life, Microsoft was practically giving them away. This is where the 435 is intended to sit, and as a phone meant to be sold in shovels, it is well worth a look.

Simply put, if the Lumia 435 was closer to the $79 mark (or even lower), it would make more sense, offering enough of what budget phone buyers are looking for, without realising their pennies are getting pinched. Over the $100 mark and it’s harder to see the value, though street price is obviously different from what Microsoft recommends, so if you can find it lower, even at $99, it might make an excellent beginner’s smartphone.

Microsoft Lumia 435 quick review – compact and extremely cheap Windows Phone from the Lumia family
Source: Laptop Media English
The best thing in Lumia 435 is probably its price, but this doesn’t mean that the phone doesn’t have any other cool features. Although the processor which runs the phone is created for budget devices, as Snapdragon 200 is, it’s made by Qualcomm, so this is big positive for the class. Thanks to its 4-inch screen, Lumia 435 is compact and comfortable for one-handed operation, even though it doesn’t have a thin body.

As one of the latest handsets in a growing lineage of impressively well-stocked budget offerings from Microsoft, the Lumia 435 is a must have for any first-time smartphone user, those prone to breaking or losing their handset or those simply after a functional low-cost second device.

The Lumia 435 would make an ok first phone or travel burner, but there better Android phones out there. Battery life is paramount at this price and the Lumia 435’s battery is no more than average, while the app selection remains patchy.

70% Microsoft Lumia 435 review: The best smartphone you can buy under £50 offers the cheapest entry point to Windows 10
Source: PC Advisor English
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 the floor with similarly priced Android phones (and iOS at this price point is just a pipe dream - or a nightmare, but whichever way you look at it, it's not going to happen). Unlike the more expensive Lumia 535, Microsoft has confirmed that the Lumia 435 will get Windows 10 when it is released later this year, which will make this the cheapest entry point for a Windows 10 computer, and that alone makes it well worth a look.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 302: Integrated graphics card in some Snapdragon 200 SoCs with 6 shaders clocked at 400 MHz.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

200 8210:

ARM Cortex-A7 dual core with a max of 1.2 GHz clock rate

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

4":

This is one of the smallest diagonal for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.134 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Microsoft:

Microsoft smartphones and tablets have been tested since 2012. There are many reviews with average ratings. The reader's interest is quite given, but the market share is not big enough for the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers (as of 2016).


65.13%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
