Better Phone for Windows 8.1 App development RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi All,

    I am from India. I am developing applications with VC++ / MFC mainly using MS VS 2008 and VS 2013.

    I want to try developing applications for Windows Phone and Windows Store and looking to buy a Windows 8.1 phone soon for same.

    Need suggestion in choosing between Lumia 535 and Lumia 730.It would be great to have Cortana working atleast as a Alpha version with any necessary updates required.

    If there are any other models not too expensive apart from those two models also would be fine. Reason for don't want to go for much higher models is, I cannot test the application performance for low/medium configuration phones.

    Thanks & Regards

  • Use your favorite search engine to compare Lumia 535 and Lumia 730. There would be more details information.

  • think they will be both good. Only it's good to compare some sensors. If you want to use NFC and test its important to havee nfc onboard.
