Lumia 535 has made its appearance within the market beside Microsoft, the primary instance after Nokia Devices were bought over by the Windows maker. Lumia 535 was first announced globally couple of months back and currently makes its India debut. The phone runs on Windows Phone 8.1 version with Denim update, providing you the possibility to use Cortana even in India.
Unlike most cheap devices, Lumia has managed to deliver on the display front, build quality and battery life. Going forward, one will expect the performance and camera quality during this space to improve as well. Here’s a quick look what the Lumia 535 offers which too without pinching hard on your pockets.
Lumia 535 sports a 5 inch qHD 960x540p display with Corning Glass 3 protection. Like most of the Lumia products, 535’s display provides no space for complaints and with great outdoor visibility on offer, the phone wide selection of color levels. The brightness levels on the phone throughout our brief usage, was decent. With a 5 inch type issue, you will not ought to worry about the viewing angle that is usually being the up until with the cheap Lumia Phones range.
Big size bezels on the front make the display look slighter smaller than it actually should be. As we have seen before with Windows Phone 8.1, Lumia 535 doesn’t have physical buttons, instead everything gets bound up within the display itself.
Lumia 535 might have been reviewed from being a Nokia brand however their style attributes and language remains intact. This 5 inch phone has been built around rectangular-shaped block type body with curved edges finishing. At the rear, the phone carries a poly-carbonate plastic body with Microsoft branding at the middle.
We were surprised by the reflective nature of the rear panel and one would have preferred the matte finishing instead, if given the choice. The phone carries 8.8 mm thickness, rounded up with a weight of 146 grams.
Lumia 535 packs a quad-core Snapdragon 200 CPU along with 1 GB RAM. Ever since the introduction of Lumia 630, Microsoft has resorted to providing a minimum of quad-core chipset and 1 GB memory of its product. The 8 GB internal storage is expandable, up to 128 GB. It comes fitted with 5 MP dual-facing cameras.
One at the rear is supported by a LED flash and for the front shooter, you will be able to click wide angle selfie, as depicted by the company itself. Lumia 535 gets saved by a 1905 mAh battery that would manufacture the phone’s day-today performance.
All in all, Microsoft Lumia 535 may be a good Smartphone, since it offers however somehow the company’s focus appears dwindled. With a rating of Rs 9,199 and providing simply 5 inch display, 5 MP front camera and 5 Microsoft products, being their takeaway, we’re unsure on how buyers can understand the phone to be and what it offers for the aforementioned value.
