It is a BRILLIANT PHONE, if you don't mind
1. No convenience
2. Having all the apps you don't need and not having all the apps you do need!
3. Searching endlessly for apps on your mobile you could find and work with, in a flick of a second on Android.... even a stone age version of Android
4. Not being able to copy data from phone to SD card
5. Having to use two separate apps, one for a regular rear camera and one for a front camera
6. NOT being able to see your phone contacts segregated as those on SIM, on the phone memory, various mail accounts, etc. Oh I am sorry, I forgot! You must get all of them on board Outlook, which means you are stuck with Outlook for ever!
7. Missing a 'file manager' app! and so, having to download an app even to copy data from phone to Cloud! Still, not to your SD card!
8. Cortana, the 'Lumia' assistant, unable to function unless you are on data connection network (Wifi, Gs, or Edge, etc.)
9. Getting apps for free, ONLY FOR A LIMITED TIME USUALLY!
10. NOT AT ALL getting some Google apps, most notably Hangouts!
11. Not finding your favorite Android apps on Windows mobile store, or will lesser functionality, in a way representing the success of Windows!
12. Realizing that the one major reason you purchased a Windows phone was MS Office, but you will have to pay for it, extra!
13. Having to sign in through one of Microsoft's account, even to use the Skype, you already had an ID for.
The list can go on, but this should suffice for now.
Besides that, it is a great phone for more reasons. It is a 'good time killing machine', since you have to keep going to settings, again and again, still tweaking the settings you spent time upon already.
So all in all, if you are not looking for a mobile phone, worth of almost no praise, LUMIA 535 should be your absolute choice!
In fact, I am finding a hard time recall anything that I could praise it for!... OH YES! Got it! A catchy ad!
On a more serious note, I think its OS is developed by the PC OS makers, for the PCs! and that is the BIG mismatch! The sole focus seems to hinge at giving an edge to the Microsoft products.
They say 'think twice' before you buy, I would say 'think twenty times too few' before you decide!
Buy at your own risk since a good number of customers like me have experienced a blank screen while in use. This phone has that common problem and seems the mother board is a technological failure, chagrin for this day and age - worse still for the renowned Nokia brand of reliability and the niche Microsoft claims in the market. We end up left at the mercy of callous attendants who say warranty does not include replacement, but only repair after weeks without guarantee of performance after that. What has been your experience in your country, disappointed customer? In Kenya (Phone Express) the situation has been grave with sellers who seem to know too well that they are selling products that will fail in weeks and put a disclaimer that the repaired phone may not work properly. Report those blank screen incidents in millions to beat Microsoft into sense! Microsoft must test thoroughly before it launches! You may ignore my complaint, but you cannot ignore the domino effect it is going to trigger globally due to the critical mass of disappointed customers. Lumia 535 is a failure at best, a nugatory rating below an abandoned toy in the long run. Microfost, defend yourself on this claim or apologize promptly.

Hey guys A new update is available for Lumia 535ds in India
The update says "Lumia update for windows phone"
The size is 350mb I downloaded it but can't see any difference
The only change is I think in firmware revision number
I think its some improvement update
But remember no update will solve the touch issue because its hardware problem so there should be a "RECALL"
