Cam unboxes Microsoft’s latest budget smartphone. The Lumia 435 comes loaded with the Windows Phone 8.1 and will be updated to Windows 10 once the OS is released. It also continues the tradition of good-looking and well-built devices for budget-conscious consumers. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon UK for just £88, and for that money, it’s a steal.

0.3MP front facing camera
Windows Phone 8.1
As with many budget phones, the box doesn’t come with many goodies inside. The Lumia 435 ships with a removable 1,560mAh battery, a power adapter and the usual instructions/quick start guide. All in a relatively small box.
Saying that, the phone itself feels solid in hand, even if it is a little on the chunky side. It’s easy to grip in one palm and could make a great option for the low-end of the market. More time with the device is needed to gather our full thoughts. In the mean time, if you’d like us to test anything specific for the review, let us know in the comments section.
