Microsoft Lumia 535 Overview
If you are looking for an affordable smartphone and are wishing to use the Microsoft platform the Lumia 535 could be the perfect phone for you. It is a compact and lightweight smartphone which has all the power of the Windows Phone platform. The specification is also great, boasting a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and dual 5MP cameras front and back. Bright colours are available as we have recently seen with other Lumia products.
The Lumia 535 is a great looking smartphone with its glossy and colourful cover. This can be exchanged so, if you fancy an alternative cover, it will be a simple task to remove one, and fit a replacement. The use of the bold colours gives this phone a real presence and an element of fun, so you will enjoy being seen with it when you are out and about.
It is becoming increasingly popular for people to take self portraits (selfies) and the Microsoft Lumia 535 is the perfect phone for this. It has dual 5MP cameras, so the front-facing camera is as good as the main one on the back. In addition, the front-facing camera has a wide angle lens which makes it easier to take selfies, where you have a group of people. It means that no one is left out of the photogragh. When you have taken your photo it is possible to, instantly, share it with friends and family.
Having the high quality front-facing camera is also perfect for video calls with Skype. This app has now been fully integrated into the Windows phone platform. This means that Skype video calls are simple and easy to make and you can see if anyone has been trying to call you from the home Tile screen. You can also take advantage of the wide-lens characteristics of the front camera. So everyone can be part of your video call.
Microsoft has given the Lumia 535 a large 5” qHD IPS display which has a 960 x 540 resolution. This means that all your photos, movies and games look great as you will be able to view all of them on a large and clear display.
You will also benefit from the sunlight readability enhancements and the inclusion of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for added protection. So you can view the display in sunlight and not have to worry about the phone while it is in your pocket, or bag.
The Lumia 535 has a high specification for such an affordable smartphone. It has a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB RAM. The result is that you can run all your apps and enjoy using your phone for all daily tasks. Having 8GB of internal storage will give you plenty of room for all your apps and media. If however you need more space then you can use, up to 128GB, microSD cards. Dramatically increasing the amount of storage available.
Windows Phone has seen many new enhancements which greatly improve how it functions and you are able to interact with it. The one which you will likely use the most is the personal assistant “Cortana”. It helps you with the organisation of your life, so missing appointments is a thing of the past. You can search for articles and other news with ease, and the more you use Cortana, the better it is able to provide information relevant to you.
There are now more apps available than ever before in the Windows Phone Store, including all the apps which you use on a daily basis. This means that you will still be able to use Spotify, Groupon, Shazam, WhatsApp, LinkedIn and many more.
