One of the most exciting smartphone updates towards the end of 2014 was the emergence of the first smartphone from Microsoft carrying the company label and that is the Microsoft Lumia 535. It is a mid-range smartphone with a surprisingly entry-level price. I am a proud owner of one so I can say that this phone really delivers the goods quite well, and this is coming from an Android user for three years.

Microsoft Lumia 535 got its name from its amazing features; that is, a 5-inch IPC qHD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a 5-megapixel rear camera with AF, and a 5-megapixel front camera for some near perfect selfies!

Other stunning features of the phone include:
  • 1.2 Ghz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage, expandable via microSD up to 128GB
  • Dual-sim
  • 3G, HSPDA
  • Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, Glonass
  • Windows Phone 8.1 with Denim update
  • 1905mAh battery
Aside from these amazing specs, the phone is retailed at only Php 5,990.00 in the Philippines. How nice is that? And it does help that the phone is a looker too. So, if you are thinking of trying out a Windows phone for a change, you can never go wrong with Microsot Lumia 535.
