Lumia 535 — First Impressions
Yesterday at a dinner with the Microsoft Devices PK team, we had a look at the first-ever Microsoft branded smartphone, Lumia 535. Lumia 535 is a low-budget smartphone which would be available for 14,500/- PKR (~145 USD) in Pakistan. It has not been launched yet but Microsoft Devices PK has planned different launch events all over the country. A major launch event with press and all will be held on 4th December in Karachi. While several other launch events with bloggers and retailers are planned in Lahore, Islamabad, Faisalabad, Peshawar and a few other places. Below are our Lumia 535 first impressions right after the break.
Lumia 535 First Impressions
- Lumia 535 feels more premium when held in hand. Build quality of the device is superior to it’s predecessors.
- Lumia 535 feels just the right size for a Lumia device. Amazingly, It is only 8.8 mm thin which you rarely see in a low-budget Lumia device.
- Although the device weighs a good 146 g but you won’t feel it unless you read the specs.
- Lumia 535 follows the tradition of on-screen navigation bar and no physical buttons. You might miss the camera button which Lumia 535 lacks.
- Lumia 535 comes bundled with Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Denim update.
- We didn’t get a chance to try out how it performs but judging by its specifications you shouldn’t expect anything less from it.
