Microsoft Lumia 435 Smartphone Review


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.

Compact size, Smooth operating system, Comprehensive software additions, Good memory equipment, Usable battery runtimes, Decent speaker, Replaceable battery, Cover can be changed, Case gets hardly warm

Bad quality of the microphone, Thick chassis, Low gaming performance, Mediocre camera equipment, Low-contrast display, Unreliable GPS sensor

If you want to pay only 100 Euros (~$112) for your next smartphone, you will have to live with some restrictions: The Microsoft Lumia 435 cannot keep up with the much better Lumia 535, which costs slightly more than 100 Euros. The screen and the...

Microsoft Lumia 435 Review: A Budget Windows Phone With Budget Features


We've taken a look at a few budget smartphones here at Techaeris lately, alternatives to pricier flagship phones that cost hundreds of dollars. We've also taken a look at a couple of Microsoft's Lumia devices while still bearing the Nokia name, and we...

The Lumia 435 is definitely on the low end of the budget category and isn’t a smartphone that is going to blow you away, or even impress you much. That being said, for the price it is a great alternative for someone wanting a cheaper device that does...

Microsoft Lumia 435 review


If you're looking for a smartphone costing around £50, your choices are very limited, but the Microsoft Lumia 435 gives you a lot for your money. It's a dinky phone with a decent screen, a dual-core processor and plenty of memory. The cameras are very...

If you're spending just £50 on a phone, you can't expect too much. The Lumia 435 gives you more than you might expect.

Microsoft Lumia 435 review


Microsoft isn't short on Windows Phones at the lower end of the price and hardware spectrum but that didn't stop the launch of another. The Lumia 435 is the new entry level point for a Lumia Windows Phone. It's a crowded space, though. With even some...

Microsoft Lumia 435


The Microsoft Lumia 435 is a compact, feature-rich budget 4-inch mobile for first time smartphone owners, or for those who want a simple smartphone at a low price. It's just £59 SIM-free, or less than £50 on pay-as-you-go – it's about as cheap as...

Lumia Camera Apps ; Cortana Voice Assistant ; Swappable back covers ; Good value

Average battery performance ; Low resolution screen ; Uncomfortable form factor ; Noticeable lag

Microsoft Lumia 435 Review: In Depth


Another day, another Windows Phone and yet, we can't help but fall in love with Microsoft's plucky little Lumia 435. Design: Not fat, just big...

Incredible value for money ; Compact and lightweight ; Feature packed

Chunky design ; Weak cameras ; No 4G or NFC

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...

Microsoft Lumia 435 review: Best smartphone you can buy under £50


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...

Microsoft Lumia 435 continues the starter smartphone trend


What's the difference between the Microsoft Lumia 435 here and the Microsoft Lumia 532? Not much. Both are the same size and have nearly identical hardware components. They also come in the same colors. The main variations, really, come out in the...

The 432 costs €69, which works out to about $81 or £54, while in Australia it's AU$129. For more hardware details, check out CNET's Microsoft Lumia 532 preview.
