We did see, however, that the Lumia 435 said “Coming Soon” for some time on the Lumia US web site.

Microsoft Lumia 435 Review

By Rich W Woods When Microsoft first announced the Microsoft Lumia 435, I was skeptical, to say the least. I mean, really, click the backlink. Skeptical is an understatement. After all, I remember when the Nokia Lumia 530 came out. I reviewed it and it was terrible. I still joke about it with my friend at the Microsoft Store. He even tells me that he tells customers not to buy it. When Microsoft asked me…

Nokia Lumia 530 vs Microsoft Lumia 435 Comparison

By Rich W Woods The Nokia Lumia 520 was the best selling Windows Phone in the history of the platform. The Lumia 530 was slated to be the successor to the Lumia 520; however, it didn’t deliver on the value that the Lumia 520 delivered. The camera has a fixed focus, it has half the storage, it’s thicker, heavier, it only records 480p video, and worst of all, it doesn’t have the physical camera button….

Nokia Lumia 520 vs Microsoft Lumia 435 Comparison

By Rich W Woods Recently, Microsoft asked me to review the Microsoft Lumia 435. If you’re not familiar with the device, it is Microsoft’s newest low end device, now behind the Nokia Lumia 530. I was skeptical, as it is also the first Windows Phone 8.1 device to use a dual core processor, something we haven’t seen since the original Windows Phone 8 devices, which are really becoming long in the tooth now, even the…

Microsoft Lumia 435 Unboxing and First Impressions

By Rich W Woods Last week, Microsoft’s Connects team contacted me asking if I wanted to review the Microsoft Lumia 435. I accepted the invitation, although I was skeptical about the device itself. After all, we haven’t seen a Windows Phone with a dual core processor since the original Windows Phone 8 phones, which, oddly enough, all used dual core Snapdragon S4 Plus processors (all Lumias, HTCs, Samsungs, you name it). It bothered me because…

Microsoft Lumia 435 Officially Coming Soon to the United States!

By Rich W Woods Wooooooooooo! Just in case the Nokia Lumia 530 was just a bit too high end for you, never fear, the Microsoft Lumia 435 is almost here. We all know that a 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 200 is just a pure waste of raw computing power, right? That’s why we need a Windows Phone with a 1.2 GHz dual core Snapdragon 200. Woooooo! If you’re one of those elitest pricks that…

Introducing the Microsoft Lumia 435 and 532, because the 530 wasn’t Bad Enough

Introducing the Microsoft Lumia 435 and 532, because the 530 wasn’t Bad Enough

By Rich W Woods Remember the Nokia Lumia 530? You remember it. It was supposed to be the successor to the Nokia Lumia 520, except the camera couldn’t focus, it had half the storage, it couldn’t record video at 720, and in just about every way you could imagine, it was a terrible phone. In fact, some would argue that Microsoft made the Lumia 535 to make up for that. Well, it gets worse. Introducing…
