Previously known as the Nokia Lumia 735 the Microsoft’s Lumia 735 hit the Verizon lineup just several days ago, on June 18th to be exact. It seems that the Windows Phone that was announced by Microsoft in September 2014 didn’t get much attention. In order to attract new customers that could be interested in the handset, the carrier reduced its price cutting it down from original $79.99 to $29.99 on a two-year contract.

Being just another mid-range device the Lumia 735 comes equipped with a 4.7-inch 720x1280p display and a bit too old as for current standards Snapdragon 400 processor combined with 1GB RAM and 16GB of built-in expandable storage. Optics offered by the handset are represented by a 6.7MP Carl Zeiss main camera accompanied by a 5MP wide-angle front-facing snapper, which should satisfy all selfie enthusiasts. There’s also a 2,220 mAh battery that generates energy keeping the handset alive.
Running Windows Phone 8.1 OS out of box, the phone is promised to get the Windows 10 update as soon as it will be available, which is most likely in September. Surprisingly enough, though sporting nothing more but mediocre specs, the Lumia 735 provides support for 4G LTE connectivity.
Right now, thanks to Verizon’s deal, the handset can be yours for just $29.99 with a regular two-year contract if you want to port to Verizon. This is surely a noticeable change in the device’s price and definitely more adequate for a one-year old mid-ranger. In addition, the same device is also sold on the Microsoft Store website where it is labeled with a price tag of $49 on a contract and $199 if you want to avoid carrier’s commitment. The phone is sold together with free Nokia Cloud Boom headphones. Keep in mind that Verizon’s deal include only on contract price. The off-contract price remains unchanged, which means that if you want to buy the Lumia 735 without any commitment you will need to pay $192.
It’s also worth mentioning that if you make a quick purchase decision and buy the Lumia 735 before July 31 (no matter which offer, the Verizon or Microsoft Store you will choose), you will be additionally granted with a special bonus in a form of a free one-year subscription of Office 365 Personal. In case you’re not familiar with the topic, the Office package itself costs something round $70. Any takers?
