If you want a smaller and sharper screen, with AMOLED being your choice over LCD, and a rear camera with decent low light performance, choose the 730.
But if you prefer a larger LCD (without ClearBlack, let me add) screen, are not very concerned about rear camera, and want to save some bucks, 535 is the way to go. Processor is slightly weaker on paper for the 535, but since it has a lesser resolution screen, real world performance should be nearly same.
[EDIT: 730 also has 1080p video recording with stereo sound. 535 has only 480p and no stereo, so consider that too.]

I think 4.7'' is not that lesser than 5''. So, 730 stands better than 535. You can go for 535 but you'll miss the premium feel of 730 including OLED & Clear black display features specified by Pratham.

730's screen should be a lot better, as it has Clearblack and better resolution. Rear camera is also better (5mp on 535 vs 6.7mp with Carl Zeiss lens on the 730)

Re: Lumia 730 or Lumia 535

Advantage of 73x over 535?

1) Better screen resolution and quality (Clear Black, colors are more vibrant due to AMOLED screen, well this is kinda subjective)
2) Faster and better processor (SD400 v/s SD200)
3) Sensor core (measure footsteps and Microsoft health integration)
4) Better rear camera quality including low light photography & video recording
5) Better battery life
6) More premium design (curved glass and better construction materials)

Advantage of 535 over 73x?

1) Bigger screen
2) Lower price point

I believe I gave you enough ammo to decide which one to shoot for

Thanks a lot guys...I really missed that clear black and many more points while comparing. Now very clear, 730 is no doubt the best value for money, just would miss the Microsoft branding for now :D

The 735 is a great phone. Some people think of AMOLED as a disadvantage because over time the colours fade - especially blue - and screens can suffer burn-in.

However, a 5 inch screen is much too large for me. I find the 735 is just a little too tall for my liking, but is otherwise a superb phone. Ergonomic, responsive, and good cameras.

The higher resolution compared to the 535 is no big deal for me. The text on screen will look crisp on either screen.

what do you want from mobile ?

you only who can decide which one is better, 1 week later I canceled my order to lumia 735 when lumia 535 arrived .

I want from lumia 735 two things ... Dual sim and Front selfie cam, now I found what I need in lumia 535 with 5 inch screen and of course Microsoft brand I love it.

if you compared between hardware lumia 735 sure will win but lumia 535 is more than enough for my daily use.

be your self

If you have the spending power to afford a 730 why would you be even looking at an entry level phone?
It has firmware issues at present ( I have one) but it will be addressed, and probably already has pending the update/fix.
This is the first commercial batch so bound to have bugs/glitches.
A tech review site here in the UK had a handset from Msoft for a day to evaluate and they reported multiple bugs in the report.
To date only one has been addressed by the owning public and that one I can also clarify.
An update will be coming and a new firmware update will be shipped with probably commercial batch2 or batch3.

I bought the 535 because I'm tight and loathed to spend lots of money on a 'phone'.
I'm not on any contract as I don't agree with the concept of luring people into 2 year finance deals by dangling the 'shiny' carrot of a new phone only for it to become all but obsolete within 12 months.
I buy all my phones second hand, unlocked and stay roughly one generation behind the 'pack'.
This phone however is different, it costs a minimal amount of money to own outright without carrier lock, has 1GB RAM (a guaranteed pre-req for WP10), 5 inch screen, decent camera, processor, colour depth and black work for me pixel wise, has an equaliser for music playback (something that was a major tick for me being a music lover and ex sony walkman owner) so was a no brainer.

That being said, I'm under no illusion that this is any top end phone, it isn't, it's entry level with some specs that you'd normally have to spend high to acquire. It has a number of attributes that I think future proof it for WP10, 1GB RAM, Quad Core Processor.
It has limitations but to me they're not show stoppers and I'll own this phone for couple of years I'm sure as I have done with the 520.

If you're looking at at 730 then your desired tickboxes are higher than that being offered by the 535, lower your sights/expectations then maybe this is for you but I severely doubt it.
