I had the Nokia Lumia 735 for a while, probably over a month before it was investigated by the police because something went on but its cleared now and I'm waiting to get it back, I bought the phone for £13 while on O2 and I made sure it was a good deal as it was covered in light scratches and a few cracks on the back cover, but despite that the camera was good, the software was outdated and it made me stick to ONE sim card which is good in my opinion.
Problems only occured when things really didn't were in my favour with the phone, I tried to update it to Windows 10 with my pc but it looked like it wont happen. Probably the phone being outdated but then again if its an old phone then I shouldn't really have to care, which I don't.
The other problem was the battery, I could just order a replacement so it isn't really a problem but for a 2200 mAh battery you expect it to last for 2 days, mine was only 1 day, if that then probably 18 hours. I'm going to wait until the battery runs out, see what I can do.
And another problem would be the camera, I said before the camera was a good camera when taking pictures of a phone like that, Lumia Camera was on the phone as well and I took decent shots and I even have some on my SD Card, however the focusing on the phone isn't as good as expected. You have to pick on what you have to focus, so its basically one or the other unfortunately but I did have some good shots.
The text messaging is a sort-of problem to me as well because when typing, you can have some mistakes while typing but not a lot because the keyboard is decently sized but for phones in its height isn't AS bad as I thought it would be because its very reliant.
And the map would need to have a voice and you need to download it from a store that doesn't work no-more so that's stupid.
The ugliest problem for me at least is that the back is made of plastic, its a good material to use, trust me its better than glass as its not that bad for your hands but chunks of plastic would fall off either by age or the fact you keep dropping your phone.
Cannot update to Windows 10.
Great phone? still using it as second one. I wish nokia will remain on market with its incredible Windows platform...

Won't be that surprised.
Well, loved the Lumia series, as well the Windows Phone OS. (Still have Windows 10-like launcher on my Xperia 5.) But let's be seroius, game over.

It 2022 and I still use this phone. I'm not going to let it go. You can get it in 4G but where I live 3G still works. Mine is still 8.1 and free HERE GPS still works without data plan. It is slow to connect to the satellite if you don't keep location on all time, but works. Friends have Android phones and ask me to check them for bugs and I get frustrated every time I put my hands on an Android phone, so annoying to use. Android tablets are just fine but their phones are difficult to use. Plus, Android is continuously updating their version so after 2-3 years Android phones become obsolete. Ridiculous. Android platform was made by geeks for tablets and was not meant to be used for a phone in the first place. Windows phone platform was developed specifically for phones and it's great. I believe Android phones are a dinosaur and will disappear in favor of a completely new phone platform soon.

I ... moreHi, by default the music player is the Windows Phone 8.1 "Music" app, you can easily transfer MP3s there using USB Connection to PC without the help of Zune or Groove. If you upgrade the Lumia to Win10M, the music player is Groove, and optionally you could download/install Spotify too (but it's not up-to-date)

It is 12/04/2020 and I'm still using this device! In my opinion, this phone was ahead of time. OLED screen, very easy to use... So sad that Microsoft just dismiss the project. Now I'm using it as a multimedia player because it still have an amazing battery.
