See How Windows 10 Mobile Runs on the Microsoft Lumia 535

As I mentioned in my last article about Windows 10 Mobile on the Nokia Lumia 520, people have been requesting device specific videos about Windows 10 Mobile. It’s understandable, as most of my videos about Windows 10 Mobile are usually based on the flagship Nokia Lumia Icon. Meanwhile, many people have low end devices, such as the Microsoft Lumia 535. The Microsoft Lumia 535 is low end, although it’s not super low end, like the…

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Speed Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Speed Comparison

By Rich W Woods This video was inspired by a post on WMPowerUser regarding whether or not Microsoft is ignoring dual core phones. I commented that people need to get over it. The dual core Snapdragon S4 Plus was a decrepit, old processor even when it was the only processor that was supported by Windows Phone 8. It really says something when your next generation low end phone outperforms your last generation flagship. Of course,…

Microsoft Now Selling the Lumia 535 in the U.S.

Microsoft Now Selling the Lumia 535 in the U.S.

By Rich W Woods Looks like you can now grab a Microsoft Lumia 535 in the United States, even though they said it would never be sold here. You can grab the unlocked model right now for $149. The Microsoft Lumia 535 uses a 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 200 processor, 1 GB RAM, a 5″ 540×960 IPS LCD (which works out to 220 ppi), a 5 MP rear camera (with autofocus. I know it…

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Microsoft Lumia 640 Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Microsoft Lumia 640 Comparison

By Rich W Woods The Microsoft Lumia 535 was the first Lumia that was released with the Microsoft branding after Microsoft acquired Nokia’s devices and services division. The device was impressive, given how poorly received the Nokia Lumia 530 was as a successor to the Nokia Lumia 520. Adding autofocus and a flash to the 5 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera, along with 1 GB of RAM really added value to…

New Firmware Shown with GDR2 for Microsoft Lumia 535

New Firmware Shown with GDR2 for Microsoft Lumia 535

By Rich W Woods This is a bit of a confusing story. Windows Phone 8.1 was supposed to ship with two updates following the release. They knocked out Windows Phone 8.1.1 over the Summer and the HTC One M8 for Windows shipped with it. Even now, Microsoft is struggling to push out Lumia Denim to its phones. In fact, they might have stopped altogether as only the flagships, which have already received it, will benefit…

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Moto E Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Moto E Comparison

By Rich W Woods Last week, I received the new Moto E from Motorola. If you watched the unboxing video, I had a hard time figuring out what the Windows Phone competitor to the device would be. After all, the Moto E is a low end phone but it uses a mid-range 64 bit processor. I decided I’m going to start with the Microsoft Lumia 535 and we’ll go from there. The Microsoft Lumia 535…

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Yezz Billy 4.7

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Yezz Billy 4.7

By Rich W Woods I have been spending a lot of time with the Yezz Billy 4.7 as of late. It is a great phone and I have been enjoying it thoroughly. It’s incredibly thing, uncannily beautiful, and it’s the lightest phone I’ve ever held. Honestly, based on my experience so far, I would consider taking it over a flagship. It’s just a really pleasant phone to use. It seemed fair that the first phone…

Microsoft Lumia 535 Review: The Nokia Trade-Off

Microsoft Lumia 535 Review: The Nokia Trade-Off

By Rich W Woods Back in September, Nokia announced the Nokia Lumia 730, 735, and 830. I called it the Nokia trade-off. You could either get the phone with the 10 MP Pureview camera or the 5 MP front camera, but you can’t have both. Nokia, now Microsoft, seems to make specialty phones that are good at certain things, which is great if you want that certain thing, but if you want two of them,…

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods Ever since I received the Microsoft Lumia 535, the masses have been crying out, “Do a comparison with the Nokia Lumia 735! I will give you my kidney if my first born child is not enough!” Being that I am such a stand up gentlemen, I said that no kidneys or first born children will be necessary. You see, I’m a giver, and I have no need for a third kidney. The…

OnePlus One vs Microsoft Lumia 535 Camera Comparison

OnePlus One vs Microsoft Lumia 535 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods Right now, I’m thinking about how many people will comment on this post without reading it. After all, it’s a low end phone against a flagship. No need to read it, right? Well, not necessarily. This is a camera comparison and while the Microsoft Lumia 535 is a low end phone, it uses a 5 MP front camera, just like the OnePlus One does. Also, a long time ago, I compared…
