Good, simple to use, though setting will be a bit challenge to navigate (no categories, every option mixed into one long list).
Love the HERE Maps and HERE Drive+, Two GPS software (one for browsing and one for driving). Offline Maps can be downloaded.
Voice recognition by far quite good in Windows 8.0, but became cumbersome in Windows 8.1.
Price vs. specs is in good ratio. Not too expensive for basic mid-range phone.
Some games might not work in this phone (Minion Rush, Microsoft Minesweepers), very lag. However, many games such as Angry Bird and Wordament perform flawless.
Nokia Smart Cam is brilliant in taking multi-frame shots.
The camera shutter button is a plus, no more tap the screen to take pictures.
Good audio sound. It's not very loud, though.
Easier search with the search button. Search anything on the web with one touch.
You may want to use external memory card (OS alone took 2.2GB)
The media Player works wonders, internet video such as Youtube and Dailymotion videos can be played without additional apps.
Battery life is good. Standby last up to 1 and half day (and longer if battery savers function is on).
You need Microsoft OS computers to link your phone up, no settings to connect as MTP or MSC mode.
The package gives one adapter with USB plugs (capable to charge the phone without additional cables) and a USB cable (for connecting to computers).

735 is single sim 4G enabled with wireless charging slightly overpriced..
for extra information,
lumia 730/735 missing two things,
1- glance screen (reason is I think because of amoled screen with low display memory)
2- No dolby® surround sound enhancements. but equilizer is available.
1- 4.7" HD Amoled screen with 316ppi which is great.
2- 2220mah battery removable battery,
3- 5mp ffc selfie cam with new selfie app,
4- 6.7mp wide angle rear cam with 1:9 wide aperture n low light imaging.
5- 1GB ram
6- next lumia denim update out of box
7- snapdragon 400 1.2 ghz quad core chipset..
8- all other features are available in 73x..
only upset because of missing glance n dolby enhancements. except this 73x is deal breaker.

BEWARE OF BUYING NOKIA PRODUCTS
It was a great day for me when I planned to buy a Nokia lumia 525 against all speculations!! friends suggested to buy Samsung ...as they said its useless to buy a Nokia these days. But i had made up my mind to stick to my old trusted brand Nokia.
It was on 28th June 2014 I bought my Nokia 525 from Bhanjanlal Commercial (P) Ltd, 42 A Shakespeare Sarani, Kolkata-700017. West Bengal, India. After buying the mobile set I came home with it thrilled but only to find to my horror that one of the ear phone is not working!!!!
I immediately called the seller and informed about it, They asked me to deposit it to their service center for repairing. After 2 days the phone was repaired...( so called) and asked me to collect it. i checked and it worked out fine but only for an hour or two!!!
I logged a complain in the Nokia Site asking for a replacement but did not get any response.Scanned copy of the work sheet of Nokia Care was scanned and attached.
Till today my very own Nokia Lumia 525 is lying with the dealer as they have promised to repair the defect.
After much phone calls the dealer has confirmed that a replacement is on the way ( about 1 month back) but still to my utter dismay i haven't received my replacement phone.
Its been 2 months and 2 days and still no response from Nokia !!!
what should i do??
Why do I have to go through all these harassment ?
Why this mental agony?
Don't i deserve a much better response from a brand of International acclaim?
