Anybody Using a Lumia 735?

If so, how do you like it? I'm planning on selling my BlackBerry Classic and picking up a Lumia 735 as a backup/change of pace device. I'd really like to hear from end users though instead of online reviews by paid shills.

Got mine on Friday - Great price point - nice and compact - good camera and battery life - and all will be upgraded shortly to Windows 10 - Excellent choice so far

Thanks! Once somebody buys my BlackBerry Classic I'll be picking up the 735. At that price point, why not?

I too have recently acquired the Lumia 735 for a spouse to replace an HTC8x.

Only slightly larger dimensions, but bigger screen. Like it a lot, have been a Windows Phone user for 4 1/2 years. Like the way it initializes auto initializes Mails, Calendar and People based on Microsoft Account used.

WP's implementation of hands-free in a car is the best in the business. Apple and Android should take note of how it's done. Cortana automatically reading email and text messages, prompting you to respond/ignore, etc is so far beyond what anybody else is doing.

Picking mine up tomorrow and Seijar is correct with the hands-free comment. My Note 4 was quirky at best syncing with my 2012 Camaro but my HTC 8x running Win8 with Cortana was flawless!

I'm using an iPhone 6 now as my daily driver, and while it connects to my car via bluetooth perfectly, the Lumias are a joy to use hands-free while the iPhone isn't truly hands-free at all, except for calls. I also think that for anybody with a social emphasis, WP's people hub is the best iteration of contact/social feed management on the planet.

I've had mine for a week.  Very happy.  The sound is better than on my land line. 

No major issues.  While on a call where you have to type in a number (like Voicemail) the screen often blinks and it can get annoying.

Of course, my 'review' might change with Windows 10.  I hope it'll be a smooth transition for all.

Verizon: Time to include 735 on your windows phone support list for commenting here.

One of the reasons I'm keen on the Lumia 735 is the WP10 coming upgrade. Microsoft is making it (relatively) easy for developers to port their apps to Windows, but I wonder if it's time to do something like BlackBerry and create an environment in which Windows phones can run Android apps.

Getting WP 10 mobile is why I'm currently using the 735. Now if they will get on with completing the update in a timely manner.
