Perfect for the casual user, but it’s limited for the power user

Nokia Lumia 730

from Digital Trends (9 months ago)

The Microsoft Lumia 735 is a nice phone for the money, but it’s tough to recommend something that just launched in the U.S. so long after it was released. If it’s a Windows Phone you want, you’d be better off with a Lumia 640 XL for $57 more on AT&T or the Lumia 950, which is c... More

The Microsoft Lumia 735 is a nice phone for the money, but it’s tough to recommend something that just launched in the U.S. so long after it was released. If it’s a Windows Phone you want, you’d be better off with a Lumia 640 XL for $57 more on AT&T or the Lumia 950, which is coming to AT&T soon, sports Windows 10, and includes flagship specs. It has a bigger 5.7-inch display and a better camera. However, if you’re stuck with Verizon Wireless, the Lumia 735 is your only option for a Windows phone.

Still not sure whether you want to be in the Microsoft ecosystem? There are a few Android phones that have better specs for the same money: The Moto G 2015 is at the top of this list, followed by the HTC Desire 626. These phones offer better specs and more available apps. The other plus is that you can still enjoy all the popular Microsoft apps like Outlook, Office, and even Cortana on these devices as well.

The best Android tablet you can buy at a more affordable price, but at the same time packing solid specs. The main advantage is being able to use the slate for long hours, without feeling tired and this model is also better than the Xiaomi Mi Pad and iPad Mini Retina, minus the camera and display brightness maybe.

A decent option for those looking for a low- to mid-tier device

Nokia Lumia 730

from Brighthand (11 months ago)

Save for a camera that surprises simply by virtue of the fact that it’s not as low-level as the rest of the phone, there isn’t much that’s special about the Lumia 735. But that’s not the point. The sort of audience this phone is targeting isn’t looking for special. It’s looking for simple, and it’s looking for cheap.

The Lumia 735 manages to fulfill at least one of those criteria; while the Windows Phone OS is pretty straightforward and user friendly, this particular handset could stand to be a little cheaper than its retail price of $300 off-contract. To put this into perspective, I paid only $60 more for the vastly superior – at least from a hardware standpoint – second-generation Moto X, also off-contract.

But while you could do better for the price, you could also certainly do worse. Impressive battery life and a decent display put the Lumia 735 above some of the entry-level competition, so don’t completely write it off if you’re in the market for a lower end phone.

The Lumia 735 from Microsoft is a solid phone. It performs well across the board, and offers a balanced feature set. The hardware is put together well. The attractive screen is sized just right, meaning the 735 is comfortable to hold and use. Call quality on Verizon's network was excellent, data speeds were decent, and the battery did a commendable job. Some people will like that the 735 has a removable battery and supports memory cards.

Windows Phone 8.1 may not be for everyone, but it’s a fine smartphone platform and covers the basics well. The 735 offers plenty of options for customizing the home screen and other behaviors. Microsoft apps such as Office, OneDrive, OneNote, and Cortana add a lot of value to the 735, and the processor/memory combo kept the 735 humming along swiftly.

Isn't geared enough to compete

Nokia N1

Nokia picked a very competitive field for its return to consumer products.

Nokia picked a very competitive field for its return to consumer products. Even the highly popular full-size iPad is finding it tough to compete with its 8" (give or take) sibling and the market is rife with high-quality tablets of that size. And the Nokia N1 just isn't geared enough to compete, it feels derivative, it doesn't offer anything unique and the software is a deal-breaker.

Still, if Nokia learns from this experience (experienced personnel moved to Microsoft so there are things to re-learn), we may be getting excited about a Nokia phone again soon.

If you're a Windows Phone devotee, the Nokia Lumia 930 is easy to recommend. It's not a perfect phone, but it's definitely the best Windows Phone currently on sale. It's very fast and runs the latest version of Windows Phone 8, which adds some nice extra features.

For everyone else, while it's an very accomplished phone, we're not totally convinced this is the phone that will convert people to Windows Phone. That's mainly down to the chunky design and underwhelming battery life, though the lack of HDR for the camera is another irritating aberration for a top-end phone.

The best things are the slick performance and the very good screen, and some of the changes to Windows Phone also help if you're switching from Android to Windows Phone. As Nokia's first flagship under Microsoft ownership, the Lumia 930 is a very good starting point, but we're looking forward to even more.

Fast and cheap

Nokia Lumia 635

from TechRadar (about 1 year ago)

Nokia's latest budget phone sports 4G and Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box, and benefits from all of the things we liked about the Lumia 630. However, it's not quite enough of an improvement to justify the additional premium.

Cheery, low cost phone with a better camera than some bargain basement Androids

Nokia and Microsoft seem to have trouble maintaining a competitive position with their Android rivals. Last year it had a strong budget showing with the Lumia 620 – it hit it out of the park with that phone. The Lumia 520 was a sensible, hugely popular follow-up. But it hasn’t kept up the pace.

The Lumia 630 doesn’t have quite the same spark. It acts as a showcase of how much Nokia can now leave out of its phones thanks to the new regime of Windows Phone 8.1, but doesn’t really cost much less, and doesn’t add all that much more either. A larger screen is welcome, but while it adds to certain experiences, its spotlight on the low-dpi screen is a real problem – especially if you compare it to Android rivals of the same price.

Competent little Windows Phone 8.1 mobile with 4G

The Nokia Lumia 635 is one of the cheaper 4G phones, and the cheapest 4G Windows Phone we’ve reviewed. However, as we said of the Lumia 630, it doesn’t feel anywhere near as competitive as the Lumia 520 and Lumia 620 did when they were released back in 2013.

Has Nokia been lazy? It’s not necessarily a case of laziness, but in having to make a bit more profit from each phone it sells, having now bitten off a nice bit of the budget market for itself. Keen pricing has given way to a slightly more laissez-faire approach that smacks just a little of complacency.

...overhere in NA! No1. Wanted it especially for it's tiny size - which turned out to be too small! Even in the largest font zoom setting it`s too small and hard to read! It can toggle between querty and regular keypad modes but in both modes held upright the keys are - again too small unless you have extremly small fingers - and therefore you`re forced to use it sideways which makes it awkeward to use ! No2. constant problems with the e-mail client (in my case hotmail) that have only been solved with the latest symbian update which brings it up to `Belle`. Solved now with this update. No3. sound quality much worse than the old N2730 bar ph which I still use from time to time when I'm tired of the 'smart ph'-bs! On the plus side: battery life , reception , general feel in your hand , ruggedness , scratchresistant screen (not back cover !) I's obviously aimed at very tiny fingered school girls

Phone is simple easy to use and figure out. Does all the basics talk, text, email and web browsing. Simple to arrange favourite home screen icons, then add, resize or delete them. Nokia has some great apps exclusive to their phones - please keep up the awesome effort with them. Driving, photo editing, maps and a few other entertaining ones depending upon which Nokia phone you choose. Camera is awesome, it does everything I could ever think of and then some things I could never have though of. Pictures are highly editable right on your phone with either Nokia apps or one of the others provided in the store. P.S. If you are an app fiend do not bother - Windows phones do not have a large quantity of apps. Most app developers can not be bothered to release their apps for Windows phones. There are plenty for what I need but you will find many popular ones are not available especially if you are coming from Apple or Android systems.

About Nokia

From the early Cityman 200 model to today’s high-end N-series devices, Nokia has been a major player in the manufacturing of cell phones. Nokia has been making phones for the public since the late 1980’s and is definitely one of the more prolific manufacturers, with its models making up part of the product mix of all major carriers.

Based in a town just outside of Finland, Nokia is a large multi-national corporation employing over 112,262 people in 120 countries.

Nokia builds for GSM, CDMA and WCDMA. Their products have traditionally been considered durable and on balance have received good to excellent reviews.

Interestingly, Nokia sold over 15 mobile phones with MP3 players, effectively making it the world’s largest producer of digital audio players, out-pacing Apple, Sansa, Creative, et al.

At a 2008 stockholder meeting Nokia made the surprising announcement that the plan to shift their attention to the internet, no longer wanting to be seen as a telephone company. This means their competition will shift as well, from Motorola, HTC, LG to Google, Apple and Microsoft.

Considering that Nokia was formed in 1865, their ability to know where they need to be in the market seems a keen one indeed.
