    So I own a Lumia 520, and the 512mb ram is just making me cry with some apps. With the release of the Lumia 535, I could test a windows phone with a good price! Thus, what are the advantages and disadvantages of the Lumia 535?

    It's definitely a good choice. Though it has Snapgradon 200 processor it has 1gb of ram. And you will get flash and ffc.

    Advantages
    Terrific value
    1 GB of RAM
    higher res display (doubt the quality is better though)
    LED flash
    FFC (5 MP one at that)
    ...

    Disadvantages
    low-end chipset -- but can you really complain at that price?
    display probably is meh -- (see above)

    Gig of ram, resolution, flash, front facing camera. Also, the screen is noticeably brighter/nicer than the 520, saw them side by side in some youtube video... much nicer... sorry no source though.

    anyone who mentions the processor being a snapdragon 200 doesnt know what they're talking about. I hate this idiocy. (oh mawh gawd its a lower number must be liek slower lol)

    this is the lumia 535 snapdragon 200 processor notebookcheck DOT com/Qualcomm-Snapdragon-200-MSM8212-SoC.129141.0.html

    This is the snapdragon 400 lumia 630/730/830 or the 'moto g' processor notebookcheck DOT net/Qualcomm-Snapdragon-400-MSM8226-SoC.111661.0.html

    they score more or less the same on all benchmarks. They are both quadcore 1.2 ghz cortex a-7's. The ONLY difference is 4G capability and a slightly faster GPU (adreno 302 vs 305) in the snapdragon 400.

    If gaming, 720p+ video playback, and cell data speeds dont matter to you then the 535 is fine.

    In general, official apps that support quad cores will be much faster, most third party apps will run about the same or only slightly faster than the lumia 520. Here is the lumia 520's processor for you convenience notebookcheck DOT net/Qualcomm-Snapdragon-MSM8227-SoC.88499.0.html This one is a 400 because it has 4g and the adreno 305 but is essentially slower- its a 1 ghz dual core compared to the 535's 1.2 quad core

    The extra memory should help with resuming apps though, so you could actually keep some open instead of relaunching them every time you wake your phone. I wish windows had a better system for offloading apps though, I wish I could give preference to certain apps.

    +1 for its 5mp camera which is greater than some of their upper mid range phones as well.. my 830 front camera is not that great compared to previous 925 ;) back to the topic.. 535 is better than 520 in all aspects.. you still get the ips display and extra ram + selfie cam so nothing to worry ;)

    Just bought one from amazon.fr (Dual SIM variant) - delivery Friday.
    Total cost 95 GBP which is pretty good considering this cost includes international delivery and its the Dual SIM model too.
    Standard single SIM model expected to be around 86 when finally available in UK so very happy!

    OK, I have done a test against my old L920 against L535 for News app. L535 fetches/opens news up faster by a second.

    I guess it could be due to quad core processor or L535 has lesser pixels to display or both or it's brand new?

    why not all of them?
    also that's just one app doing one thing.
