    I think that 535 doesn't have gorilla glass but.. All those problems you're having maybe are because of a faulty unit to should take it to a service center, or your carrier's shop and ask for a replacement

    Yes it does have Gorilla Glass 3, I have GG3 too, I don't know about plastic feel, but you won't get better than that.. Of course it's not a normal glass anyways.. I think it has a layer of something on it so it feels smoother and easier to slide.

    It seems that your device possesses some problems, lagging like this isn't usual for WP..

    It definitely should work. If it shuts off automatically while in use, or if the screen doesn't allow normal typing, then you've got a defective device. Return it.
    On the other hand, it is almost the lowest end Lumia you can buy, so don't expect it to come with highest quality components. All affordable devices must make some sacrifices.

    Plastic feel to the glass? Did you, by any chance, leave the thin plastic sheet on there that is just for shipping?

    Random shutdowns MAY be related to the battery not contacting the pins correctly. Remove the back cover. Get some paper and make a small pad (about 3 thicknesses on the paper) and tape the pad inside the cover so it pushes down on the battery. Put the cover back on.

    ​Hope some of that helps. You may also want to look at your screen sensitivity settings...

    Manufacturing methods aren't perfect.
    There were defective Lumia's for as long as they existed. Same with iPhones, same with Galaxies, etc.
    Defective phones aren't suddenly popping up with Microsoft at the helm, you just happened to get a bad unit. Better luck next time.
    Get it repaired or replaced under warranty. Contact Microsoft support, this should be a clear-cut replacement job.

    Also, I recommend looking at the 635/630 if quality is more important than the display and RAM, because I suspect some build quality was cut to make room in the budget for better specs. Everything has a price. (Not that the phone is shoddily built AFAIK)

    I had similar issues with L720 and it's a problem with the device. Get it replaced. Internal touch sensor is of fault and don't use different wall chargers. Use the one that came with box.

    You got a bad device, period. I own a 820, 925, 635 and a 520 and have never had a problem with any of them. Take it back and I am sure it will be replaced. If the next one is like that then you can reallly start to complain. Quality control is not perfect in anything you buy. Its the nature of the beast. I would love to know how many phones (from any OEM) that are bad. I bet the percentage is very small. Unfortunatly you got a bad one. Doesn't make them all bad or the OEM bad.

    "Flop phone" ?

    It's not a Lady GaGa Christmas album. It's clear you have a faulty unit. Just get it replaced and relax.

    And you did return or replace that device, did you?
    With so many troubles, I cannot find an excuse to not do so.

    Then, how about the new one? Still have trouble?

    Why go to the bother of returning the phone for a replacement when you can post a message on the forums so that everyone else can tell you the sensible thing to do?
    :P

    Under setting go to ease of access and turn OFF the magnifier this will hopefully resolve your screen related issue(I mean screen not responding...). Let us know after trying this.Have you tried hard reset?? Good Luck.

    It's a great specced phone but interestingly, Paul Thurrott at Winsupersite criticises the build quality. He says it doesn't feel great and it won't be replacing his 635 as a phone he uses regularly.

    This, people are saying about how this wrecks the 635 and stuff, but there's a price to everything, even if its not apparent on paper.

    I have a Lumia 635 and it does have a plastic feel to the screen. I bought a tempered glass protector and that "premium" feel to it is back again. Considering a decent screen protector can be picked up for under $10 shipped on Amazon, I thought this was a good compromise without spending a ton of money.

    Bought one of the 39$ 635's (even though I don't need it) and I have to agree with everyone. It is one hell of a phone for the price. I think if Microsoft adds a flash, ups the ram to 1gb, call it a 640 and they would be able to compete with the Moto G (which i also own) a lot better. The screen is outstanding and almost as good as my daily 820. I am impressed.Have not seen a 535 or a 530 to compair.

    Actually just make the 535 with 4G/LTE, put a clearback display on it and call it a 640 and boom!

    Defo a bum unit, this is an excellent phone all round for the money paid.
    I think you'd be hard pressed to find something of a similar spec for the same money, SIM free.
    At the end of the day people will still whinge their t1ts off about this phone because some people are just not happy unless they're being negative!
    You can please some of the people, some of the time, but not all of the people, all of the time!

    Kept my 520 too for similar reasons, albeit soccer in my case ( would've said football but our overseas cousins use that word for their body armoured version of rugby!) and nights on the town!

    These people who have responded above clearly haven't owned a Lumia 535 before. If you have purchased one, you would know that it is a widespread issue.

    I bought one for my little sister as a Christmas present only to discover that the touchscreen has some serious issue. Whenever your finger touches the lower portion of the screen during scrolling or using the handwriting recognition keyboard, it results in a mistap or it fails to recognize your handwriting.

    Before anyone claim that I got a faulty unit, hear this: I returned it to the store the next day, and the staff said that this is a known issue (he has sold 3 units before me), and after trying 3 other brand new Lumia 535, he gave up and said he'll give me a full refund. After that, I contacted Microsoft Malaysia's Facebook page and I was told that a software update is coming to fix the issue.
