Microsoft Lumia 640 vs Lumia 535—Fans Await Windows 10 Update On The Former

Microsoft Lumia 640 A Better Bet Than Lumia 535The Lumia 640 is one of the best picks for those looking for decent performance without going overboard. Come June and the phone will be among the initial models to be eligible for Windows 10 update. Pretty hardy despite its build, the phone is sleek at 141x72x8.8 mm dimensions and impresses with its 5-incher size laced with 1280×720, 294ppi TrueColor resolution.

Let us not forget the IPS display that accounts for great screen colors and viewing angles. The Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim is not until the Windows 10 arrives and you can trust the Lumia 640 to multi tasks and handle apps. The 1.2GHz quad-core, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor adds punch to the 1 GB RAM. As fr the camera, the 8 MP is decent with LED flash.

 On the other hand, the Microsoft Lumia 535 runs on the Snapdragon 200 CPU clocked at 1.2 GHz and flaunt 1 GB RAM. Therefore, working on it is not much fun. It also disappoints with the 5 MP camera that has Flash but fails as a result of quality.

Analyzing the Indian smartphone buyer sentiments clearly reveal that the country is inclined towards investing in budget pieces under INR 9000 as of now. Thus, the wide array on offer in this range from Huawei could see much success as will the upcoming releases from Lenovo and Yu. Here’s a lance out among Huawei’s Honor 4C, Yu’s Yureka and Lenovo’s A7000.Asus Zenfone 2 Release Date

In terms of design and physicality, all the three are average and have a sturdy structure. The typical back, SD slot and the easy SIM card access are features that budget smartphones always weigh on. It is no different here. Just one dumper that Honor 4C has up its sleeve is that it has a non-removable battery.

However, it more than makes up with great back panel make and easy grip. The resolutions of 1280×720 pixels is common to all three wares but the Honor 4C comes with 5 inches on-screen size while Lenovo and Yureka are 5.5 incher phones.

The processor on all three smartphones here are of Octa-Core make but we are most impressed with 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6752m on A7000 followed by Snapdragon 615 MSM8939 on the Yu Yureka while the and 1.2GHz HiSillicon Kirin 620 SoC on the Honor 4C is hardly at par.
