To all those who doesn't have Cortana feature yet just switch you phone's region to US and language then restart phone after that toggle on location and wifi. Bing search will then be changed to Cortana. To customize it just select Cortana from app list. I think it only available in US for now but will be soon available on other region

Can anyone confirm that lumias with hardware 0.5.0.1 don't have the touch problems?
The only bad thing about this phone was the touchscreen, gawd it's so weird and the screen didn't feel like a gorilla glass.
Let's see if this problem solved after received a Windows 10 update.
I just bought this phone & I love my orange colour. I don't have problem with touch screen & my frineds also interesting to buy this phone.
તમે બધા આભાર.
nit, 21 Jan 2015how to update the phone?????????????my 535s lock screen gets locked when ever i put it in pocket & go for a walk ,i have to switch the power off to bring it to life .Any one having same issueor any solution?
Real problem with this phone is touch issue. After update i am seeing more touch improvements. Over all it's a decent phone with this price range.
I am thinking to gift 535 to my father and it seems that it doesn't have a good touch I am confused please suggest me should I buy it or not
I brought a 535 and the first thing i did based on the forums was to get the update and restart the phone. Once the update was applied, i have now been using the phone for over 2 weeks, and here is a quick summary.'
1. The Touch is not as smooth as the Lumia 520, 720, 920, 1020, 1520 i have used, but its still quite smooth. What i see is that the new Windows button seems to be part of the cause, as unlike the previous phones these are not hardware buttons but part of the screen, and seems to have bugs in the implementation.
2. The display is decent, but clearly not in the same league as older budget lumia phones such as the 520. The lack of the ClearBlack technology is pretty evident.
3. The 1GB memory means you are not going to have any issues of compatibility of some apps as was the case with other 512MB memory phones such as the 520, 630, 635, etc
4. The phone seems to prefer to switch to 2G than 3/3.75G, again an OS issue, as there is no setting to say "3G only", hence it auto connects and this problem is common across all Windows devices. Prior to Windows 8.1 you could use a Field Codes settings to force this, but this is now not possible with 8.1. Why Microsoft can't have this as part of the options is bewildering.
6. The Snapdragon 200 processor is decent, and offers very much like the 1020 i had, but i felt the 1020 was faster in browsing, possibly because its single core performance is greater than the Snapdragon 200 (and possible even better than the Snapdragon 400) though its an older hardware. Unless your app is designed for multi-core, the single core performance is the key, a thing many of us fail to understand.
7. The camera in good detail is quite decent for a budget phone, however though it has an LED flash, the flash is very weak, so not that greater a performance compared to Lumia phones without flash.
8. The front camera is a 5MP sensor, but a real budget type, but still offers a bit better capability than the normal VGA types. However the Microsoft Selfie camera app is still very much its infancy, no special features as photo booth, etc!
9. Call quality is good, and speaker phone performance is decent, as long as you palm it the correct way.
10. The slim design, larger screen area, and light weight make it quite a decent phone for the price. If you see the phones pricing is almost 30-40% less than the price the Lumia 520 was offered in the Asian market
11. Battery life is pretty good, and i can last over a day easily with data on full day.
12. The native browser is very slow on this phone, and surfy which usually performs better does not work well on this phone. However UC Browser seems to be the best performing browser on this phone.
