  • I've tested the Microsoft Lumia 535 Windows phone
    • very cheap
    • feels plastic, especially the sharp edges on the front
    • the back feels nice though. Feels like Nokia design
    • the phone feels nice in the hand
    • the size is perfect with the 5-inch screen
    • personally I don't like the removable back and replaceable battery.
    • I prefer unibody and as few openings as possible
    • I really like the Windows 10 mobile operating system
    • the experience with Win 10 on this cheap phone is even better than iOS 8 on the old iPhone 4s
    • the UI is great and the phone feels snappy with it
    • some Apps start a bit slow though but that's probably because this is a low end phone without a fast CPU and much RAM.
    • I like the 5 megapixel front facing “selfie” camera. Great for recording vlogs in 1080p
    • if I had to choose something else instead of the iPhone, I would definitely chose this over any Android phone.
    • what Microsoft are doing at the moment is much more interesting than what Google are doing.
    • the Lumia 535 is a really great phone for its price
    • it's a great work phone to be used with Microsoft Office and Outlook
    • it beats all cheap Android phones on the market
    • it won't replace my iPhone though. Not by far.
    • but that's not the point with this phone or this test either.
