The Nokia Lumia 735
looks like most other Windows Phone smartphones, which is a good thing. It’s bold and simple, with curved sides and sharp angles. Despite it being clad in plastic, it’s also tough, and survived a few drops without suffering so much as a scratch mark.
Its 4.7-inch, 1,280 x 720 AMOLED display is bright, punchy and vibrant, but slightly oversteps the mark. While blacks are flawless, colours can stray into unrealistic territory.
The 6.7-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel front-facing sensor are real selling points. The former shoots well in low light and excels for close-up portraits, while the latter has a wide-angle lens that lets you fit more people into your selfies.
The 735 is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB RAM, but Android smartphones with the identical hardware setup seem to run high-end games considerably better. However, the Lumia has the bonus of NFC connectivity, and its 2,200mAh battery lasts just over a day.
