The Lumia 535 is the first smartphone on the market with the Microsoft logo, and also interesting, affordable handset with Windows Phone. We checked whether it is a successful continuation of the philosophy of Nokia, and a whole new stage in the development of the line.

HOUSING / WORKMANSHIP
Sorry, below expectations
535 does not deny their origins, blending perfectly with the design of a series of Lumia. Like other low-cost devices, the phone is made of plastic, finished in many bright colors (orange variant we tested). The design is also not surprising – it is the core of the screen along with the components that hide in the back and sides forming the flap.The phone is pretty neat, for equipment with a screen diagonal of 5 inches. The impression is mainly due to the convenience of streamlined shapes and low weight. In addition, the handset is perfectly balanced, so that even proponents of a more compact devices should not have problems with the service. The material from which it was made casing is glossy and slick. The look is only a matter of taste, but we can assess the practicality of plastic – and they leave a lot to be desired. First, the texture of plastic is unable to provide a strong and secure grip of the phone. Another problem is the enormous susceptibility to soiling of the housing and, in particular ubiquitous collection of fingerprints. Actually, we have to type them in a natural look Lumii 535 because to them it was not, we would have to use a smartphone gloves only because of the rubbing of the housing can not keep up. The last issue is the high susceptibility to scratches. But I would add immediately that this problem in our color version is not too onerous, because scratches on first sight to be seen. Nokia was famous for its first-class plastic construction. There was even a kind of benchmark and a reference point, as it should be to create a well-done and folded plastic phones. After the 535 model, although the logo has changed, so I expected the same. Unfortunately, the fit of the elements in a reviewed phone is not good. The construction has already creaking under normal turn the phone in hand, without arousing or some trust. Moreover, when removing a flap by pressing the camera's eyes, the screen along with the components very dangerous bends. The external speaker is located in the lower part of the rear wall of the phone. It generates high-quality sound, and this surprisingly loud – our measurements showed 82 dB.
Large screen, but so what
display with a diagonal of 5 inches is based on IPS panel and has a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. It would seem that this is a sensible choice. Good technology, the size of a truly flagship density at 220 pixels / inch – and yet this screen must be called weak. Why? Primarily due to the color reproduction – they are faded, almost sterile. Mentioned shortcoming exposes additional color tiled interface of Windows Phone 8.1. But this list is not a way to end the allegations. screen is deeply embedded in the housing, which – like the phone a few years ago – the distance between protecting the front glass and the display is large. This negatively affects both the visual impression and viewing angles. Due to the use of a matrix of IPS, colors themselves are not distorted, but the change in outlook darkens the image instantly to the border lack of readability. to adjust the brightness scale is good – too high is what true level of the minimum luminance (64 cd / m2), but the phone makes up for the high value of the maximum strength of the backlight, which reaches close to 460 cd / m2. Despite this, the visibility in the sun is not sensational – this is due to lack of good anti-reflective layer. The touch pad works well, but sometimes he blunders (one of the problems often commented on the Web). Supporting the phone with one finger should not experience any surprises. Trouble sometimes appear when using the multi-touch, so when playing the most. It happens that instead receive two separate points detected is only one located therebetween. The problem is not onerous, because there is relatively rare. System update on this issue introduced any changes.
Energy storage Li-ion entrusted battery with a capacity of 1905 mAh. It provides acceptable runtimes, relevant to the parameters. In the combined cycle, with the brightness set to low (approx. 160 cd / m2), the phone should easily withstand one day. Naturally, the greater load and increased activity, especially those related to 3G connectivity, operating time can be reduced by up to several hours. [Test slug = "battery" virtual = "conversation, movies-wifi-off-3g internet, internet-wifi, communicator-fi, charging-ac" product_id = "20220"] All measurements were registered at the luminance reduced to the level of 160 cd / m2 (low setting). Charging the battery fully takes a little over two hours. The equipment can also be connected via USB cable connected to your computer, but it takes noticeably longer.
Well, for this class
In Lumii 535 most likely installed the same apparatus as in the models 630 and 520. 5-megapixel sensor captures images in a decent quality that fall well both in terms of color and detail. It is safe to say that in this respect we are dealing with one of the best systems of phones costing less than 500 zł. Worse presents a video recording mode. Do not know why the manufacturer has limited the resolution to 480p – a value of less than acceptable, even for the price. The overall quality of the films is also not impressed. And while on such parameters would be expected, although above average liquidity, it also leaves a lot to be desired.
A sample video
While the main camera overall, not quite the best, is the front – despite the almost identical parameters – is worthy of praise. Wide-angle lens and a 5-megapixel sensor are adequate to Selfie, and the camera with the same performance as the main, should check out the Or watch. Is used to operate the camera application Lumia Camera, which has a number of functions relating to the regulation of the photo and its primary processing. We have the ability to set the exposure, shutter speed and play serial photographs. Unfortunately, the program works quite slowly, auto focus now needs to focus and take pictures of the process itself is not as fast as we would like.
Phone impeccably performs when it comes to phone calls. The speaker is loud and the microphone performs its function as it should. Streamlined and lightweight design is conducive to a long conversation – can interfere at most slippery already mentioned housing. Phone application is exactly the same as in any phone with Windows Phone – a simple and ergonomic.
535 is responsible for the performance of the system Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor with Cortex A7 clocked at 1.2 GHz and Adreno 302 graphics, supported by the 1 gigabyte of RAM – as compared to its predecessors is probably the only way forward. This set is perfect for a simple-to-use interface, Windows and all applications from the Market. You need to include them as even the most advanced games that Lumia overwhelmingly fires. Do not count on high graphic settings or liquidity impeccable, but the very fact that the possibility of launching demanding 3D games, is worthy of praise.device multimedia capabilities are not large, but even in this field lies Lumia 535 ace in the hole. By an external media player MoliPlayer Pro because we were able to run a test clip with the sound of DTS, the service is quite rare in phones.

SOFTWARE / FUNCTIONALITY
The latest Windows Phone and less accurate GPS
The phone is running Windows Phone 8.1, which, as we well know, each phone looks the same. Clean and simple, tiled interface has the same supporters as opponents. But the fact is that it looks neat and is difficult to suspend, even in a more advanced games and applications. Similarly, as in other series of Lumia smartphones, the manufacturer added from each other a number of useful applications, such as navigation HERE, Children's play area and a number of programs for processing and sharing photos. GPS (with A-GPS) is not very accurate, and for this a long time catches the signal. Lack of precision is perfectly visible on the screenshot of our test in which the line, in theory, tracking the movement of the tester turns chaotic and overlaps with the buildings. Sensitivity WiFi (standard b / g / n) is at the correct level. You should not have problems with signal reception, where they catch him other devices. The phone has two SIM card slots (with support for Aero 2). They can work only in stand-by mode, or during a call by one, the other is inactive. The phone does not support USB OTG. Available to the manufacturer's left less than 8 GB of memory in use. It is not a large value, but you can always extend it for up to 128 gigabytes of additional micro SD card. In this space, you can also install applications and transfer their data.
SUMMARY / EVALUATION / OPINION
Nokio! Come back!
Microsoft Phone Lumia 535 seriously considered as a worthy successor to Nokia's low-cost devices. In relation to the models of the "previous period" is a noticeable drop in quality workmanship and attention to detail. But keep in mind that the tested model is extremely inexpensive device – and it still makes it an attractive option for low-cost handsets against Android. Even if the test equipment has certain disadvantages. [Temperatura2 product_id = "20220"] [inne_propozycje product_id = "20220"]
