Microsoft Lumia 735 Unboxing and First Impressions

Microsoft Lumia 735 Unboxing and First Impressions

OK, OK, I know I’m not unboxing the Microsoft Lumia 735. It’s the Nokia Lumia 735; however, I really promise that for the purposes here, both phones are exactly the same. I recently received an LG Lancet to review. The interesting thing here is that it’s exclusive to Verizon and it sits on the mid-range side by side with the Microsoft Lumia 735 as Verizon’s two Windows Phones. The objective is to compare the two…

Nokia Lumia 735 Review: It Reminds me of an iPhone

Nokia Lumia 735 Review: It Reminds me of an iPhone

By Rich W Woods I have been spending the last couple weeks with the Nokia Lumia 735. I really have to say, Microsoft really knocked it out of the park on the mid-range with this one. Well, to be fair, they knocked it out of the park on the mid-range with the Lumia 830 as well. The first time I picked up the iPhone 6, it just felt unreal. It was so light and thin…

iPhone 6 vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

iPhone 6 vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods My two weeks with the Nokia Lumia 735 will be coming to a close within a few days; however, it just wouldn’t be a round of camera comparisons if I didn’t compare it to the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 is renowned for having one of the best smart phone cameras in the industry in both the rear and the front. To go off topic from the camera for a moment,…

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods I’ve been spending some time with the Nokia Lumia 735, as many of you know. It uses a 6.7 MP rear camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. It’s one of the rare Lumia cameras that have a Carl Zeiss lens but it is not Pureview. Here’s the interesting thing about it. Pureview is Nokia’s (and now Microsoft’s) technology that takes a higher resolution image and oversamples it down to a lower resolution,…

Nokia Lumia 735 May Not Come to the United States

Nokia Lumia 735 May Not Come to the United States

By Rich W Woods Way back on September 5, 2014, Microsoft announced the Nokia Lumia 730, 735, and 830. While the Nokia Lumia 830 appeared on AT&T in early November, the Nokia Lumia 735 never managed to show up. My contacts with Microsoft always told me early 2015 for the Nokia Lumia 735 from the very beginning. Unfortunately, it looks like it might not be coming at all. The official word from the Lumia US team…

Amazon Fire Phone vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

Amazon Fire Phone vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods This comparison is actually a request, although it would have come eventually anyway. The Nokia Lumia 735 and the Amazon Fire Phone are two of the three phones that I am reviewing right now. The Amazon Fire Phone actually came out pretty similar to the Nokia Lumia 830, so it seemed fair to compare it to the Nokia Lumia 735. I have always been a fan of the Amazon Fire Phone….

OnePlus One vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods Anyone who follows For the Love of Tech, or hell, anyone in the OnePlus forums knows that I love my OnePlus One. They might also know that I’m on a personal mission to find the perfect picture taken with that phone. After all, it’s a wonderful phone but it’s not really a wonderful camera. This is my 22nd camera comparison with the OnePlus One and I have tried all sorts of…

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…

Nokia Lumia 735 Unboxing and First Impressions

By Rich W Woods I finally obtained a review unit of the Nokia Lumia 735. Unfortunately, it was not in time to compare it to the Nokia Lumia 830 as some requested. Microsoft originally told me that I could hold onto the Nokia Lumia 830 until the Lumia 735 came in but now there is doubt as to whether or not the Lumia 735 will ever be released in the United States, so they wanted…

Nokia Lumia 735 Plans have not “Hit a Snag”

Nokia Lumia 735 Plans have not “Hit a Snag”

By Rich W Woods PocketNow posted a blog post stated that Lumia 735 US Release may have hit a snag. The basis of this was that it would seem that the coming soon page has been lost somehow for the Nokia Lumia 735. I am writing this to confirm that that is not true. They said that they reached out to Microsoft to confirm a rumor that it was coming to Verizon in early 2015 and…
