As expected, Microsoft’s Lumia branded devices have been hitting our stores really hard, just like Nokia did ages ago. The latest from Microsoft’s offering; the Lumia 535 Dual depicts a stunningly large display panel and the latest Windows phone operating system with expected over the air updates. It comes amid Microsoft’s decision to dumb the Nokia Name after it acquired the Finnish phone maker. Besides Windows Phone OS, Lumia 535 comes pre-installed with Microsoft Office allowing users to quickly access and edit their files as well as upload and save their images on a massive 15GB offered through OneDrive. Microsoft Lumia 535 looks stunningly amazing with a variety of colors to choose from, it’s one of those devices you’d really love to walk around with despite the specs underneath.
Themed on the selfie experience, it packs a 5 Megapixels front-facing-camera and comes pre-installed with the popular Lumia selfie application. Amazingly, you can now fit more background objects or friends in the selfies taken, ensuring every detail is captured. This photos can then later be shared with friends from the selfie application to OneDrive, Instagram, Twitter and more. One more advantage of an enormous front-facing camera is the ability to capture amazing videos during video calls; Microsoft Lumia 535 utilizes the built-in Skype video call application and a dedicated camera to maximize the experience with high-quality videos as well as allowing more friends to fit in, thanks to wide-angle lens.
Underneath are some interesting mid-level features that include; built-in 8GB storage, a Quad-core processor and an enormous 5inches display panel. Interestingly, it comes with a MicroSD card slot which can accommodate up to 128GB of storage, that’s if you aren’t satisfied with additional 15GB available via OneDrive.
