    Hey there, I am wondering just how bad the touch issue is on the Nokia 535 in the U.K?
    As I'm considering it however having read about the issue, some have said if you're a one finger or slower typer then it's not such an issue...I only use one finger as a rule and I wouldn't say I'm particularly fast....so how bad is it?

    I don't use my current phone for much other than texting and my music whilst in work and the price of this seems perfect....any advice gratefully received...

    Thanks 😃

    Is there a way of knowing that it's a new model 535 without the touch issue before purchasing the Lumia 535?

    You will not have much problem using this. Most of the problem occurs when you use Swype or type very fast.

    As a consumer, personally I will not buy this when I know such issue surface. Earlier reviews didn't mentioned this issue at all except one Indian reviewer. This gives me the impression to take the issue lightly and because of its Brand. How wrong was I.

    The problem surfaces mostly when your hands are damp, wet, sweaty, or too much static from rubbing your hands.

    The issue is virtually resolved for me, applied the update and then did a hard reset via the nokia recovery tool.
    The only time I ever get any problems now is if there is excessive grease on the screen, I clean it every morning with a glass cloth and have no problems at all for the rest of the day.

    Given what I paid for it and what I got for my money I can certainly live with it and be 100% happy.
    Still it give the trolls something to whinge about and attack MS so they're happy too, win win!!

    My UK Single SIM version only has issues when there are more than 3 fingers on the screen at once, it loses track of the fingers when a fourth is added, otherwise there is no issue. It doesn't cause any issues during normal use, as I wouldn't be using more than 2 fingers on screen at once anyway.

    Hardware revision 3.0.0.0 - updated with touchscreen bug fix.

    Don't think I've ever used more than 2 fingers on a phone.

    I got one for my wife, updated it and set it up for her. I played with the phone for few days and have not really noticed any issues with touch screen, it's good phone for the money and she really likes it. She had a Huawei G510 before and that phone was pain in the ***. Lumia is miles better. The only issue I would bring up is double tap to wake, it does not really work all that great. But a lot Lumias are having that issue as well.
    So yes I would really recommend this phone over any android in the same price range. And this is coming from loyal android\nexus user.

    Thanks for that, amazingly enough I am using the same G510 and I don't mind it but would prefer a windows phone as I enjoy my Nokia 620.....thanks for all the replies, off to buy it now in a bit in screaming bright Orange!

    I don't have any issue with touch on this phone. But I cannot project my screen to PC.

    Get the latest (as of 1 May 2015) desktop version of the Project My Screen App here. Just tested it with my L535 and it does now work
