Lumia 435 for T-Mobile
Starting from a short reminder to quickly refresh your memory, the Microsoft Lumia 435 is a budget sector smartphone that houses a 4-inch LCD screen featuring a WVGA resolution (800 x 480p). It arrives powered by a dual-core Snapdragon 200 chipset clocked at 1.2GHz with Adreno 302 GPU responsible for graphics.
Additionally, the Lumia 435’s processing powers are backed up by 1GB RAM, whereas storage capacity is represented by 8GB of built-in storage that later can be easily expanded up to 128GB via microSD cards. Lights are kept on by a 1,560 mAh battery.
When it comes to the optic parameters, the Lumia 435 isn’t definitely a handset for photography buffs, since all it offers in this field is a mere 2MP f/2.7 rear camera unit accompanied by a VGA shooter located on the phone’s front.
Moving on to the software and connectivity options, the Lumia 435 runs Windows 8.1 with Denim update featuring Cortana personal assistant out of box. It offers its users a support for dual-SIM, Bluetooth 4.0 and HSPA+ connectivity. Although the phone doesn’t sport ultra-fast 4G LTE connectivity (which, honestly, isn’t much of a surprise when we consider its really low price), the T-Mobile subscribers of the device will be able to benefit from T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi calling service.
Perhaps the Microsoft Lumia 435 isn’t one of the most powerful handset currently available on the market. However, the fact that it offers the Windows 8.1 experience for as little as $70 will definitely help the handset win masses of staunch users.
