Review: Microsoft Lumia 735 for Verizon Wireless
The Lumia 735 from Microsoft is a solid phone. It performs well across the board, and offers a balanced feature set.
The hardware is put together well. The attractive screen is sized just right, meaning the 735 is comfortable to hold and use. Call quality on Verizon's network was excellent, data speeds were decent, and the battery did a commendable job. Some people will like that the 735 has a removable battery and supports memory cards.
Windows Phone 8.1 may not be for everyone, but it's a fine smartphone platform and covers the basics well. The 735 offers plenty of options for customizing the home screen and other behaviors. Microsoft apps such as Office, OneDrive, OneNote, and Cortana add a lot of value to the 735, and the processor/memory combo kept the 735 humming along swiftly.
