    Yes, this is true. All updates make the phone respond smoothly and quickly just after the update is finished, but then it would usually start to slow down after a few days. This is even true when a new keyboard language is installed since the phone installs it as an update as well.

    You could check the Firmware revision number in your phone Settings > About. Also let us know if you're using the Dual SIM Variant or not.

    Also, did you notice any changes in the responsiveness of the screen? This is the only noticeable change I've found, but I'll keep updating post #14 with more findings. So far, it looks like that I'm the only one who notices an improvement.
    Firmware revision 02063.00000.15114.43004
    On dual SIM.
    Screen feels much better. Hopefully it stays this way.

    What went wrong with your L535?
    The much dreaded "touchscreen" issue. Ghost input, click instead of scroll, etc. My screen was very OK when I bought the device (mid January), but it got worse and worse.

    I went vocal on the former Nokia discussions forum (in French, as I'm in France) and MS team contacted me by PM. Took my IMEI and said to return my device to the Care as "our teams know what to do", wink wink.

    I did and I'm almost sure my touchpanel has been replaced by a newer one (read: this is a hardware issue). There's a lot of testimony, at least in Europe (Germany, Italy) documented here : http://forums.windowscentral.com/lum...-ever-fix.html

    I'm not saying ALL touchscreen issues are HW, but some of them certainly are, including mine. If the multitouch test is not OK, then there IS an issue. My device was never OK for multitouch test, but it acted as OK. The situation deteriorated though over time. On a French forum, a guy got his 535 repaired (following the same process I described, he received a PM too), now he can register up to 5 fingers in multitouch test without an issue, and things seem stable after 2 weeks. My repair status went to "Waiting for spare parts" as for him, so I'm quite confident my 535 received the same treatment. Can't wait to get it back on Wednesday.

    Most of the time though, the French Nokia Care (centralised, the customer can't access directly) only reflash the device and return it as is :(

    Anyway. I welcome this new FW (still to be rolled out in France) on my 535, when it's back next week. I'll report what was changed on it + consequences on the thread aforementioned, FYI ;)

    Much appreciated, msirapian. I guess I'm a bit lucky with my L535, but I won't hold on to it for long... I"m retiring it as soon as my L1020 is back... or at least test the Win10 Tech Prev on it as soon as it becomes available for the L535.

    I hope everything would go well with your L535... at the very least you got it serviced for free (I hope, it should be within the warranty period for parts replacement and repair).

    Looking forward to your findings.

    Good to know. As of this point, it seems that only those with the Dual SIM Variant are experiencing improvements in the touch screen reliability. Keep the constructive information coming, folks!

    Hello! I called today to work more potential customers and after the call ends screen not responding! I could not close call! :( It be the new update? If you send in service it would change my screen? I happen to press the screen in the bottom right corner and I do not answer!

    If your phone is still covered by warranty, they may replace the screen for free. However, please insist that the technicians in the service center rigorously test the screen reliability first. Some of them simply perform a hard reset or an OS re-installation and hope that that fixes the problem (since that's the usual solution for older devices). After the repair, you could test the phone immediately while you're in the center and return the phone to them on-the-spot if the issue still persists.

    If (and it seems like it is) the latest version that is available to the general public, the you should be able to receive this update through LSRT. However, there may be no need to go as far as using the LSRT since it is already being pushed out to the public... unless your phone is experiencing some serious OS-related issues or if you have enrolled your phone into the preview for developers program (something that seemed to have locked out some of the updates in other phone models).

    Also, the LSRT will erase all your personal data from your phone. I don't think this minor update would be worth the hassle... even if you had everything backed up already.

    Yes. Check out this thread - some users have received this update already several days ago.

    I'm from Philippines and I haven't received this update, and my phone still says that it's up-to-date. Checked with Lumia Software Recovery Tool and Windows Phone Recovery Tool, both still says that .240xx is still up-to-date.

    People from my country have already received the same update. Should I be concerned?


    P.S. My phone is not enrolled at the preview for dev program.

    Added info: Got this phone from SUN Cellular Post-Paid Plan. April 1, 2015.

    II'm. From India even I ain't received this update. Thinking to flash the firmware its useful and worth and fixes most problems.

    As gpobernardo said above, this firmware update is a very minor one, I don't think it's worth reflashing the device unless you feel the need to for other reasons.

    I've checked the Navifirm servers this morning, the firmware is slowy expanding to different product codes. It's not the country you're living in or you current operator which matter, but your product code. Even in India, my French Country Variant 535 Dual SIM will check the availability of a new OS/FW for its product code.

    So my advice: wait & see, nothing critical here.

    I'm going with msirapian's advice - just wait for the update to arrive to your phone.

    Out of curiosity, this Microsoft page doesn't say anything about a Sun Cellular variant of the L535 for the Philippines. There's a strong possibility that the webpage itself is not updated since the firmware number indicated there for the L535 is also not updated (still at 15053), but I'd like to verify: is your L535 "locked" to Sun Cellular?

    A guy on a French forum has contacted Microsoft France, about the update, and more precisely, to know will it fix his touchscreen issues.

    Answer: send your device to the Care to get it repaired ASAP, the next update is NOT about the touchscreen issue.

    Yes, it's locked to Sun Cellular. Although you can still use other networks as long as you put Sun Cellular on one of the sim slots.

    Alright. Thanks for the info.

    So, are you experiencing any touch screen issues that you're hoping the new update would fix, or were you just concerned that your not yet receiving the update?

    If the first, then in conjunction with certain posts in this thread (post 14 and 45), the update is only very minor and as of this point only having the screen replaced has greater chances of improving the touch screen reliability. I haven't tried taking my phone to the service center and claim the 12-month free parts replacement warranty yet, but you can try contacting either Sun or Nokia Care and see if they would recognize the world-wide flaw with the L535 screen and replace it.

    If the second, just wait for the update. It's most probably being held back or tweaked by Sun since it is a Carrier variant.
