Microsoft Lumia 532 details
Microsoft has done a great job since acquiring the Nokia unit last year. With Windows Phone holding most of its market share in the budget segment, Microsoft has launched a range of affordable devices covering 5,000 to 10,000 segments of the country. The Lumia 532 is the newest member of the Lumia family and is developing the already aging 5xx series.
One of the benefits of launching so many models in the entry-level category is that it becomes confusing for customers when choosing a new phone. In just a few months, Microsoft introduced the Lumia 535, Lumia 435, Lumia 430, Lumia 540 and Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL.
To make matters worse, most devices offer similar devices. You’ll probably find a Snapdragon 200 quad-core and, in some cases, the Snapdragon 400, which powers the devices. Memory is generally the same in 1GB The 8GB of storage and the microSD card slot are also standard in all areas.
So, what is different? Well, in the case of the Lumia 532 you get a 5MP camera on the back and a VGA camera on the front. Go through the Lumia 535 and you’ll get a 5MP front and back camera. On the other hand comes the more expensive Lumia 640 with an 8MP camera on the back and a miserable 1MP trigger on the front. The size of the screen is also a distinguishing feature, with the Lumia 532 featuring a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 800 x 480, while the Lumia 535 has a 5-inch QHD screen (960 x 540).
It is likely that the confusion was caused by the change from Nokia to Microsoft, as most of the current devices were fired in an explosion by the giant Redmond. So what should Lumia have you? If you’re looking for affordability, the Lumia 532 can be your best bet. If you can not live in the front without a 5MP camera, opt for the largest Lumia 535. The state of Windows Phone is such that, regardless of the differences in minutes in the hardware, you are guaranteed consistent software interface, which is the most important in this segment.
