Lumia 435 & 532 : Microsoft’s answer to Android One

Last updated on December 26th, 2015 at 10:46 am

Toss toss ,what do you got ? and the Answer pretty much is Android ! Well that’s the case of anyone thinking to buy a new phone nowadays . Whenever we think of buying a new phone ,first thing what comes to our mind is Future proofing ,ain’t it? Being a part of an already wide eco-system is always better ,than to suffer the app gap (app availability & updates)  ,later on any other mobile platforms leaving iOS for that matter. Ever since the demo of Lollipop at Google I/O there’s a crazy hype around people to get their hands on that mesmerising experience. Ever since 3rd November ,the day Android lollipop launched ,it’s been googly days so far ,as company is giving each and every thing of it ,a material make over. But the thing is Lollipop update hasn’t reached many ,leaving many worried regarding their OTA’s support. Lollipop is the best android has ever been ,you see that’s why it’s being hyped more than anything. Loading a bug free version of Android is always better than for searching online for patches to fix few bugs, if you know what i mean..!!

So what should Microsoft do to be in the game of Ecosystem’s ? After adding Nokia’s Lumia division in their territory ,Seems like Microsoft has its something to showcase over the Google’s Android One offering and that is second batch of devices coming from their mobile division which are Lumia 435 and Lumia 532. huhh some names man !

Both of these devices are the first of their perspective 400 & 500 series to come from Microsoft now instead of Nokia ,tailored towards affordability ! both of these devices come pre-loaded with Windows phone 8.1 with the latest denim update and soon might get updated to Windows phone 10 later in the year as the Wp10 builds are on the way as Joe belfiore stated in the company’s recent keynote happened earlier today. The Lumia Denim Update brings specific enhancements for Lumia smartphones such as the new Lumia Camera.

Lumia 435 :
Lumia 435 sports a 4-inch WVGA LCD (800×480) display with 233 ppi ,having a 1.2Ghz dual core snapdragon 200 processor coupled with 1GB Ram and having 8GB on internal storage with a capacity of 128GB microSD card expansion ,a 2MP FF primary camera and 0.3MP VGA camera which is very poor according to today’s standards and a Battery capacity of 1560 mAh.


Lumia 532 :
Well Lumia 532 packs a 1.2 Ghz Quad core Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB Ram snapping in adreno 305 GPU , a 4-inch WVGA LCD (800×480) display with 233 ppi , the same 8 GB internal memory with same expansion support as above , a 5MP Primary camera and 0.3 MP secondary camera ,with again the same battery capacity of 1560 mAh .

The Lumia 435 and Lumia 532 will be available in 3G single SIM and 3G Smart Dual SIM in bright green, bright orange, white and black. These devices will start to appear in market from February .Lets see how they are priced ,since these specifications aren’t enough according to the competition around ! Time will only let us know how well they compete to Google’s Low end offerings !
