Spec showdown: Lumia 535 edges Moto E with more storage, front camera

Mikael Ricknäs | Nov. 12, 2014
With the Lumia 535, Microsoft has delivered a worthy successor to the successful 520 that stacks up well against tough Android competitors like the Motorola Moto E, which the smartphone beats on several fronts.

Battery
The Moto E wins this round with a 1,980 mAh battery, but the Lumia 535 is not far behind at 1,905 mAh

Summary
That Microsoft launches the Lumia 535 so soon after the arrival of the weak Lumia 530 shows the company is serious about making a go of Windows Phone in the low-end smartphone market. However, there is little doubt the company and Windows Phone will struggle to compete with Android. The availability of apps has improved, but is still an Achilles heel.

The Lumia 535 will start shipping in November, and arrive to the U.K. during the first quarter next year. For now, there is no U.S. launch date.
