Alleged front panel photos of the Lumia 1030, with 5-inch display. I loved my 920, but too small, loved the 1520, but the screen issues killed it for me. A 1520 variant with the the same camera specs as the 1020 variant would be my dream!
Microsoft today began accepting orders for the Lumia 535 Windows Phone. According to JD China, it costs RMB799 (about $128). The actual in-store availability date was not disclosed by Microsoft.
“I’ve been holding out for this specific model because I wanted to have the larger screen size and better screen quality. This model has all the features of the Android version but the better operating system. With this version, I get better battery life, less errors and glitches from the OS, faster and better integration with my social media, and fantastic hands-free driving and texting options. The map system with fully indexed and searchable offline maps is over the top! No more worrying about signal or data while on the road since the entire state is downloaded to my phone and I can search and navigate even when I have zero signal. The processor has enough horsepower to last at least for the next three year’s worth of updates, and the audio, display, and even the built in TV remote come over from the android version. The built in 5MP front facing camera is perfect for selfies, and the rear camera is surprisingly good! Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise, it’s not the megapixel that counts, it’s the aperture size that matters and this thing brings it in spades.
Microsoft Lumia 535 sounds like a winner with its strong specs for that price range. 5-inch display, 1GB of RAM, 5MP front and rear camera with flash. Nobody is expecting Windows Phone to dominate, but Microsoft is setting the platform up for a much brighter future IMO.
New alleged Lumia 1330 leaked pictures show, probably will have a better screen and quad core. All the rest of the specs will be the same as the 1320.
