Both the versions of Microsoft Lumia 535 and Lumia 535 Dual-Sim come with identical specifications; except the later features of a Dual-Sim phone. The smartphone operates smoothly with help of advanced systems along with screen flexibility and clearity. It also sports a couple of fun gaming apps and a series of free integrated pre-loaded Apps for the users. So, if you are looking out for some of these features specifically in your new phone, Microsoft Lumia 535 should be your first choice.
One of the highlight features of the Lumia 535 is the 5-megapixel front-facing camera, which is reminiscent of the Lumia 730 and Lumia 735. The phone not only provides you with crystal-clear imagery and the Lumia selfie app, but is also able to feature clear shutters during Skype calls. The Smartphone also supports Bluetooth and can connect to accessories such as the Portable Wireless Speaker. The back plates are interchangeable and Microsoft will be offering flip covers in matching shades for those that like to give their handset a little extra protection.
Although Microsoft ranges a bunch of Lumia devices with sizable displays, most of these are aimed at the top end of the market. The Lumia 535 is intended to fill up the loops holes in its current line-up, being a more affordable Smartphone that still has a decent-sized screen to gaze at. The handset’s design doesn’t stay far from the typical Lumia formula, boasting a matte or gloss plastic back, rounded sides and softened corners. It sits comfortably in the hand and the button placement on the right-hand side — volume rocker up top and power button underneath — should suit right-handers’ thumbs perfectly.
About Microsoft branding? It’s totally fine. The logos are small and unobtrusive, especially on the front. It feels strange to pick up a Lumia without Nokia’s logo, but it’s a sensation to which everyone will get used to pretty quickly. This can be the best budget phone within such a price range which has fascinating features and qualities. Buying a price worthy and desired gadget is truly necessity as the tech world has gripped us from everywhere, such that you just can’t do anything without a handy Smartphone!
