Review: We have tested the Nokia Lumia 735, marketed as selfiephone with 5MP front camera.
Lumia 735 am new mid-range phone from Nokia/Microsoft, and at the same time, one of the last phones that carry the Nokia logo.
The phone has the following key characteristics:
- 4.7 inch AMOLED display 720 x 1280 (312 ppi)
- 1, 2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor 400
- 8 GB of internal memory (expandable with microSD cards)
- 1 GB RAM
- 6.7 megapixel primary camera
- 5 megapixel front camera (selfiekamera)
- 4 g/LTE
- 2,220 mAh battery
- Wireless charging
The phone is highlighted by Microsoft and Nokia for the 5 megapixel camera, that makes the storefront coveted for persons with urge for self portraits.
But there is a market for a selfiephone, or is it just salgsgas? We have tested the Nokia Lumia 735-The Selfiephone …
Design and shape with cheap vibrations
One could almost say that Nokia has chosen a retro-design to Lumia 735, which largely resembles the Nokia Lumia 900, who came to Denmark in mid-2012. The pages on the phone is rounded, while the top and bottom are flat.
The removable back cover is made of high-gloss plastic that unfortunately is very responsive, and so sticky fingers shaking opposite it on the bad way, when the phone’s vibrator activated. The back cover is available in the colours orange, green, white and black.
Screen – with little adjustments will be the really good
Lumia 735 has a 4.7 inch AMOLED display at 720 x 1280 pixels, with a density of 312 pixels per inch (ppi)
4.7 inch might sound like a good size for a smartphone, but the fact is that the screen doesn’t fill much, relative to the size of the phone.
Above and below the screen, there are large black surfaces, which are not used for anything other than the location of front camera and speaker for conversation. If you look at 930, which has a screen Lumia at 5 inches, is the black passive fields substantially smaller.
Navigation buttons on the Lumia 735, is indented at the bottom of the screen. It makes that there is even less screen space available, unless you are taking advantage of the possibility to let the navigation menu disappear when not in use.
Under options you can select on the menu to be hidden when not in use, but it can have its drawbacks, as we thus must swipe up (draw menu from the ground up) every time you have to have fat in the navigation buttons. It allows duplication of fingers, if you just want to press “back” or go to the home screen
The actual screen, however, is of higher quality than one might expect from a phone of this class. The image stands sharp and nicely with good contrast and beautiful natural colors.
If you like more bang on the colors can easily be adjusted under settings for this screen. Here you can choose between several pre-set configurations or user can create his very own favorite. I prefer to adjust the screen a bit, otherwise it may seem a bit dull and flat.
Operating system – liquid and delicious
Out of the box running the latest version of Windows Phone 735 Lumia 8.1, as well as update Lumia Denim. It will, however, be sin to say that Danish users get much out of Denim-the update at this time, since the most interesting things in this update relates to Cortana, are not available in Danish, and Rich Capture to Lumia Camera, which has not yet been rolled out.
In the daily running the user interface easily and smoothly, and few people will notice that the processor and the amount of RAM is less than in the top model Lumia 930. Just pushed to the extreme, for example in graphics-intensive games, performer Lumia 735 slightly slower than the top models.
Camera – Selfiephone is salgsgas
Lumia 735 has a primary camera on the back on 6.7 megapixels. There is no question of PureView as on Lumia 830, 930 and 1520, but despite everything with Zeiss Optics.
The camera has auto focus, LED flash, and performs better than many phones in the same price range with 5 megapixel camera. For a mid-range phone it is approved! The images will be nicely incisive, with fine details, great colors and in a quality one may be familiar to show off to friends and family.
One thing I miss by Lumia 735: the dedicated camera button, found on the slightly more expensive models. For me it is just easier to take pictures with a physical button, than with a tap on the screen.
And now comes the will to the big glansnumme: selfie-the camera, so the front camera of 5 megapixels, which will be highlighted as the major selling point for Lumia 735.
Of course takes a camera of 5 megapixels better images than a camera on 1.2 megapixels, as it that sits in the top model Lumia 930. However, we must, in my opinion, have a very specialized needs, in order to go after a phone with this particular feature. Microsoft should in my opinion have highlighted other qualities than selfiekameraet.
The quality of the images we cannot take from Lumia 735, but by and large I see selfieprædikatet as salgsgas.
Battery-enough for the day and the road
Battery in Lumia 735 is at 2,200 mAh, which fine provides power for the better part of a day. In the test period, I have typically used the phone from kl. 06:00 to 23:00. 11 p.m. most days I could hold power until 8 pm. 23, but a few days ago I had to give artificial respiration around at the battery. 20.00.
Charging the Lumia 735 works both with cable or wireless, so if you have a charger for this.
Conclusion-with salgsgas on!
On the whole, I’ve been very pleased with Lumia 735. The stand is not apart from the crowd in many areas, and the large number with a selfiekamera of 5 megapixels, is to the best of my knowledge and belief, clean salgsgas.
The phone fails nothing. It is, however, quickly expect with the super fast 4 g connection and a nice screen on 4.7 inch.
The price may be adjusted a bit before Microsoft should really get started in sales of Lumia 735. The price is about 2,000 dollars, and in the same area, it must compete with the HTC Desire, LG G3S and Nokia’s Lumia 610 1020 with 41 megapixel camera! The price probably should further be about 1,500 SEK.
Lumia 735 flows easily into the mainstream flow, and not a specific desire to have a large selfiekamera, so there are other equally good alternatives.
Nokia Lumia 735 gets 4 out of 6 stars.
-High gloss unfit for fat fingers
-Vibrate on the bad way
-Selfiecamera is the booster
