Microsoft's falling out of love with Nokia came to a final stand when both the companies severed ties with each other. And while the Nokia plant in Chennai created a bit of headline for a while, both the companies have since moved their separate ways.
Indeed, Microsoft's Lumia 535 has become the first smartphone to carry Microsoft rather than the Nokia branding. The Lumia 535 is a legitimate successor to the Lumia 530. Just earlier this week, Microsoft launched the Lumia 535 for the Indian market at a price of Rs. 9,199.
But what are the top features of the smartphone everyone is talking about? Let's take a closer look.
Latest Windows Phone Experience
The Lumia 535 comes with the latest version of Windows Phone. And with regular over-the-air updates, you'll always have the newest software. With Microsoft Office built in, and quick access to your files through OneDrive, viewing and editing documents is easy.
Take stunning selfies and fit more friends into the picture with the wide-angle, 5 MP front-facing camera. It has the popular Lumia Selfie app installed for easy access to the front-facing camera. You could also enhance your selfies with filters.
Support for Skype
Just tap the Skype video call button. And with the wide-angle lens, your Skype video calls will show more of what's behind you. Skype has always been a popular offering from Microsoft, and having an updated version of the same on the new phone shouldn't be surprising.
Premium Looks and Feel
The Lumia 535 sports a colorful design, easy readability in sunlight on a large five-inch display and a quad-core processor for a smooth smartphone experience. It also offers a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and microSD card support (up to 128GB).
From top titles like Instagram and WhatsApp to the most popular up-and-coming games like Subway Surfers, everything is available at just a moment's notice. Even your favorite apps come to life with Live Tiles on your personalized Start screen.
