Microsoft Launches Low Cost Lumia 535

The first Windows Phone powered smartphone with Microsoft branding, the Lumia 535, is launching in Pakistan today. It’s a standard affair as far as Lumia devices are concerned but what’s different is the competitive price tag: 14,500 PKR for the Dual SIM variant.

The handset comes with a large 5 inch screen, albeit with a lower resolution than we would have liked (960×540). It’s an IPS LCD display panel though which is a surprise given the price. It comes with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and an extendable microSD slot. Other features include a Quad Core processor, 5MP camera and 3G connectivity.


Customers have a lot of choice these days when it comes to smartphones but a large screen, 3G connectivity, Dual SIM capabilities and a low price tag are a winning combination in any price bracket.

    Its price is Rs 14,250 with advance telecom warranty at Hyperstar Lahore with free selfie stick. Good value for money i must say.

    • Geekpk

      Good thing about WP 8.1 is u can install everything in the microsd card so no storage issues and problem installing games like Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5 or Nova 3 at the same time.

      • Maaz

        may be a user can transfer to sd card but i don’t think SD200 with Adreno 302 will be able to play Asphalt8

        • Geekpk

          Bought the phone – every game i mentioned working flawlessly surprisingly. Maybe its the WP good optimization.

            Brother from where you bought it?

          • What about the touch sensitivity issue? I heard that it is very terrible.
            Worse than 530

      • Muhammad Ashraf

        You’re super idiot

        • Shan Ali Khan

          well im Windows phone user. I love it <3 no hang like android. I am seeing you in Windows Phone after windows phone 10 launch

          • Muhammad Ashraf

            IOS also not hangs, but the point is lack of apps is the main failure of windows smartphone, even HTC, Huawei & Samsung said that they have not earned single penny from selling of Windows phones hence they don’t produce more windows phones

            • Shan Ali Khan

              yes IOS is best. but Windows is faster and safer then android. yes you are right Windows phone dont have apps like IOS And android. Lets see Windows phone 10 is coming , same code will ab able to run in Windows , Windows Phone , tablets and Xbox. it will give huge start at least for developers.

              • Muhammad Ashraf

                bro read today article on this blog, major companies are no more producing windows phone, Microsoft has also admitted that windows mobile project is not so successful even their windows 8 is totally flop

              • Muhammad Ashraf

                the problem is hardware of windows and IOS is not that much heavier than android so the main questions is why settle for less while paying more. Further android is integrated to all most any electronic devices even car in dash systems, smart watches, tv hence everthing
