Is there a better 5inch screen phone?

About to take delivery of a Lumia 535 from CPW, I'd appreciate opinions on whether people think there is a better 5inch screened mobile on the market (for under £60). Not so worried about the operating system having in the past used iOS, blackberry OS and Android, this would be my first windows phone though.

    Phone arrived today, initial impressions are :

    1. seems well built, back is thin plastic but at this price it's a compromise I can live with.

    2. OS takes a little getting used to, appearance different (live tiles) to what I'm used to.

    3. Touch screen can be a little too sensitive, too easy to select when you intend to scroll, this might be user related, see how it goes.

    Lots of features still to play with but on the whole I'm quite impressed, seems a very competent piece of equipment for less than £50.
    Keep smiling,

    My Lumia 630 work phone is decent. Battery lasts for ever too but then being a work phone I don't use it for fun stuff. Quite like the UI tbh.

    I think you made the right decision. The Lumia has one of the best camera's on the market. The new 2015 phones aren't much of an upgrade from last year's and all have terrible battery life
