5MP Front facing camera.
5MP Back camera with FLASH
1GB RAM
1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 Quadcore CPU
8GB Internal storage + microSD slot (up to 128GB)
5" qHD (960 x 540)  resolution display
Sensors: Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, Proximity sensor
Battery capacity: 1905 mAh

Price? 110 euros ~ NZ$176 before taxes.

Lumia 535, Lumia 730/735 and Lumia 830 IMHO are the best value for money phones out of the entire Lumia lineup. Lumia 530/635 should have been the Lumia 535.

That's 635 pricing, I'd expect this to be less

Hmm looks like it could be a decent upgrade from a 520 for someone not willing to spend hundreds on a high end phone. Would be cool to have a flash and a front facing camera....

BlueShift: So what network will it be on here in Kiwiland? Spark or VF?

According to the specs:

 

 

 

  •  

    Cellular connectivity

     

    • GSM network: 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz
    • GSM max data speed DL: EGPRS 236.8 kbps 
    • GSM max data speed UL: EGPRS 236.8 kbps 
    • WCDMA network: Band 1 (2100 MHz), Band 8 (900 MHz)
    • WCDMA max data speed DL: 42.2 Mbps (Cat 24) 
    • WCDMA max data speed UL: 5.76 Mbps (Cat 6) 
It looks best suited to Vodafone / 2 Degrees.  If your favourite network doesn't choose to offer it in NZ, then it's very easy to order a parallel imported one.

Usually this type of low cost devices nearly always have different variants available to the market. 
520 have a Spark version isn't it?

For my money I'd look at spending a bit more and go to the next model up which covers all bands used in NZ.

For example, my Lumia 720 does 850 & 900 WCDMA so it can switch freely between Spark/Voda/2D with no loss of performance.  The 720 is 18 months old now, so when it comes time to replace it, I'll be looking for a similar model which covers ALL bands.  They don't cost much more, maybe $100 or $200 max.

The exact reason why I bought 3 x Lumia 625 for family members. Just because it is a budget device that covers all bands.
