It turns out that Microsoft’s first branded smartphone, the Lumia 535, is turning out to be something of a hit.
It is a 5-inch display, quad-core processor device with 1GB RAM, microSD slot, 5 megapixel cameras front and back, and runs Windows Phone 8.1 Denim.
Veteran mobilista, Olusola Osibeluwo, got himself one and has this to say:
I just got the #lumia535 yesterday and been up with praises for Microsoft . This is a great low range device. I don’t think any Android phone in its price range comes close. I took some pictures in the dark with this device and I was so surprised at the images. My note 3 has been resting since yesterday .
And from Jesse Oguntimehin, who purchased his from an online store:
I’m amazed that I’m enjoying this Lumia 535. Appears to be more usable than the Lumia 630.
To which I added:
The Lumia 535 has more RAM, larger display and newer OS version than the 630. Usability boosts…
And it costs less than the 630. Consider that I thought the 630 was amazing when it hit the market and you can imagine how much value the 535 really is.
Latiff Cherono says:
The Lumia 535 brings mid-range features including a 5 inch qHD screen, a front facing 5 MP selfie camera and a 5 MP rear camera with flash at a price tier that has often made do with little frills. With the latest version of Windows Phone, this device offers an experience that its competitors can only provide at a much higher price point.
