Description

The Nokia Lumia 735 comes with a mission: it is advertised as a 'selfie' phone, one with higher-res front-facing camera to allow you taking even better pictures of yourself. It's a 5-megapixel front shooter with a wide-angle lens that does that, plus, the phone has also got a 6.7-megapixel rear camera. For all else, this is a fairly typical Windows Phone 8.1 mid-ranger for late-2014: it's got a 4.7" 720p ClearBlack OLED display, Snapdragon 400 system chip, 1GB of RAM, and 8 gigs of internal storage. The difference with the otherwise almost identical Lumia 730 is that the 735 features 4G LTE connectivity and only one SIM card.

  • Physical size:

  • Resolution:
    • 720 x 1280 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 312 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

  • FCC measured SAR:

    FCC measured SAR - Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a "safe" phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
