Microsoft Lumia 435 continues the starter smartphone trend

This model is almost like the entry-level Lumia 532, with just a few slight variations.

What's the difference between the Microsoft Lumia 435 here and the Microsoft Lumia 532 ? Not much. Both are the same size and have nearly identical hardware components. They also come in the same colors. The main variations, really, come out in the camera and processor.

Where the 532 has a 5-megapixel fixed-focus camera, the 435 has a 2-megapixel fixed-focus shooter. Likewise, the quad-core chipset of the 532 gives way to a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor. Oh, and there's no Glance UI on the lock screen to tell you the date and time.

Otherwise, the specs line up almost exactly: a 4-inch 800x400-pixel display, 8GB of internal storage and a removable 1,560mAh battery. It comes in the same colors, too: bright green and orange to shake up more subtle white and black shades. Cases are interchangeable between the two.

The 432 costs €69, which works out to about $81 or £54, while in Australia it's AU$129. For more hardware details, check out CNET's Microsoft Lumia 532 preview.
