The touchscreen responsiveness is - however MS are issuing a fix for that shortly.

Very bad experience for me using Lumia 535, touch screen is too bad 👎 although It is having 1gb ram the device is running very slow..
Marc Aurel, 12 Dec 2014This is getting too far with only the two of us discussing, but I must say to me the Lumia 535... moreHehe, yes, overall I'm not saying these phones are not good for the money, I think mainly the naming scheme is bad, because when you see new models of a series, they are supposed to be superior in some specs and at worst equal to previous models. What happens here is that the 630/635 are actually worse than the 620/625, which had more features like front camera, flash and the 625 even does 1080p videos. The 530 is equally disappointing in some aspects. I think the 630/635 series would have been better named 630/535 and the 535 maybe 640, the mistake is mainly marketing/branding one.
Thank for review.
I think you should list 630 as an alternative too.
Looks like a better value for those not interested in ffc.
Where there double tap-to-wake mentioned?
M and M, 12 Dec 2014I have seen the price on some online stores since it's not selling in my country yet, so yes, ... morei don't think it's Microsoft fault that 530/630/635 are poorly thought, they came after Nokia's acquisition. they might have been on production by Nokia before Microsoft acquire Nokia, and Microsoft have no choice but to sell them.

Saying that 480p/30 video is "almost unusable" even for casual family videos makes about as much sense as saying that 5MP still camera is unusable, since the high end has 13-20MP. DVDs are 480p/576p for pete's sake(with a player that supports progressive scanning); do you consider them almost unwatchable?
Marc Aurel, 12 Dec 2014Lumia 520 is a better choice since it has 720p video recording? Because in all other respects ... morethe 520 is also snappier, it seems like the 535 is overall of a lower quality, people report the screen hanging occasionally. It has higher resolution than the 520 but weaker graphics Also, I am sick of hugephones (and many people like me), so I would like a cheap phone more pocketable.
My point is that the 520 was great because in 2013 it gave you so much for a small price and it appealed to a wide range of people, it was cheap but it didn't feel cheap, because it was fast and had 720p when the best phones took 1080p. While this phone is slower, steps back to 480p when the big guys do 4K, it means it's almost unusable for family videos even occasionally, it's not really the good budget bargain that the 520 was.

Because in all other respects the 535 is better. Or do you mean that the 520 is better value for money right now? It should be, since it's almost two years old and sells for almost half the price it came out originally.
Looks like a no go phone. 480p video recording, inaccurate touch, low battery and poor sunlight visibility are the main reasons this is a fail.

All these pointless models like the 530/535 and 630/635 are so poorly thought and it looks like it's all Microsoft's fault, they came right after Nokia's acquisition.

The initial price without taxes is about €100 or $125 (USD) sim-free. Right now of local net stores here has it for €90.5 (without VAT).
