Microsoft Lumia 540 Dual SIM Review

 

Microsoft launched the Lumia 540 Dual SIM last month in India. It is a handset that makes you confused as to what its purpose in Microsoft's lineup really is. This is because it closely resembles its elder brother, the Lumia 640 which was announced...

Good Build Quality; Good Screen; Good Front Camera; Dual SIM Support; microSD Card Slot (Upto 128GB); Removable Back Cover and Battery

No HD Video Recording (Maximum Resolution for Video is 480p at 30fps); Average Camera (Bad Low Light Performance and High Colour Noise); Price; Above Average Battery Life (Lesser compared to the Lumia 640)

The Lumia 540 Dual SIM is a good phone overall. It has a few shortcomings especially with video recording limited to 480p resolution. But it has more of positives than negatives and that is a good thing. But we aren’t sure if we will pick it over the...

So should you buy Lumia 540 Dual Sim? Well at Rs 10,199 you have a hell lot of Android devices many of them being much more powerful, still the major competitor for this device would be Honor 4x which is selling like anything and is certainly more...

5-inch, dual-SIM Microsoft Lumia 540 sells for $150 in Europe, Asia, Middle East

 

Microsoft is at it again, releasing the next in its line of increasingly indistinguishable Lumia phones.

Microsoft finishes the Lumia 540 Dual SIM, which goes on sale in May in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, in the Lumia line's now signature cyan and eye-searing orange (glossy), as well as the more demure white and black (matte).

Microsoft Lumia 540 Dual Review

 

Microsoft Lumia 540 Dual is the latest Windows Phones launched. It comes with ClearBlack Display technology.

• Solid Build Quality ; • Bright Screen ; • Good Camera Quality ; • ClearBlack display

• No NFC ; • Unstable Gaming Performance ; • No HD Video Recording (Just 480p@30fps)

Without a doubt the new Lumia smartphones come as an improvement over its 2014’s Lumia 535. It has better camera, bright screen and improved battery life, though the hardware remains the same. The performance might not be extraordinary but it is...

Microsoft Lumia 540 review - The Times of India

 

Microsoft Lumia 540 features a better display, improved camera and a bigger battery and is priced Rs 1,000 higher than its predecessor. We take it for a spin to find out if it has what it takes to be the gateway to Windows Phone ecosystem.

*Good display ; *Great camera ; *Decent build quality

Microsoft Lumia 540 Dual SIM Review

 

While Microsoft hasn't launched any flagship or a high-end Windows smartphone in the past few months, they have launched several budget devices. The recent addition to the Lumia family was another budget aimed smartphone, the Lumia 540. The Microsoft...

Solid build quality ; Good display ; Great low light rear camera ; Good performance

underwhelming front camera ; Windows Phone is still catching up

The Lumia 540 is priced at Rs. 10,199, which is a little surprising considering the Lumia 640 is priced at Rs. 9,999 and it’s better equipped. The device competes with a plethora of great Android smartphones including the likes of Lenovo A700, Honor 4X...

Microsoft Lumia 540 Dual SIM Review: Affordable Style With a Few Caveats

 

Looks great ; Very good camera for stills ; Good battery life

Video recording capped at 480p ; Slightly sluggish performance

The new Microsoft Lumia Dual SIM feels like a definite step up from the Lumia 532 Dual SIM in terms of its appearance and display. It just feels better to hold and use, and yes, even to show off. Internally the two are much the same and so you aren't...
