The Microsoft Lumia 535 is an entry-level smartphone developed by Microsoft Mobile that runs the Windows Phone 8.1 OS and is upgradable to Windows 10 Mobile. The phone features a 5-inch display. It is equipped with a 5 MP front-facing camera.[4] It is the first Microsoft-branded phone to be used after its acquisition of Nokia's mobile phone business.

On May 16, 2015, Microsoft released its successor, the Microsoft Lumia 540, with a better display and an improved camera.[2]



The Lumia 535 comes with a 5.0" IPS LCD display and 5 MP cameras on both the front and the back. The phone 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of built-in storage, and is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 CPU and Adreno 302 GPU. Battery capacity is 1905 mAh and the phone is available in orange, green, white, black, gray and blue.[5]


The Lumia 535 ships with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 (through the Lumia Denim update) and is upgradeable to Windows 10 Mobile.


Jim Martin from PC Advisor wrote: "We're fans of Windows Phone 8.1 but the Lumia 535 compromises in too many areas to make it a bargain at £100. You're better off with a Motorola Moto E or – if you want 4G – the EE Kestrel."[6]

Katharine Byrne from Expert Reviews wrote that "Microsoft's Lumia 535 is well-built, but poor battery life and a fussy touchscreen makes it frustrating to use."[7]

According to Microsoft, the Lumia 535 became the best-selling mid-range smartphone in Pakistan.[8]


Since the release, users have detected numerous problems regarding the phone's touch screen. Microsoft has stated that these problems are caused by a software bug and released an update in January 2015 to fix it.[9][10] Another update in March partially fixed the issue and users who are still experiencing the issue are advised to contact Microsoft Care.[11][12]
