Обзор смартфона Microsoft Lumia 532 DS (RM-1031)

 

Бюджетный, но дорогой. Старший собрат Lumia 435 в слоистом корпусе, с камерой в 5 мегапикселей и чуть более быстрым на бумаге процессором

С точки зрения качества передачи звука во время разговора, это стандартное решение от Nokia – неплохое, но и не хорошее – обычное. Используется один микрофон. Виброзвонок остался тихим, его гарантированно пропускаешь.

Microsoft Lumia 532 Smartphone Review

 

Double X. Microsoft's Lumia 532 is actually the dual-SIM version of the Lumia 435. Buyers looking for a very affordable smartphone and want to use two SIM cards at the same time will find out what restrictions a price of just over 90 Euros (~$97)...

Rigid casing, Removable battery, Extensive storage expansion possible, Smooth-running operating system, Acceptable camera, Lots of included software, Casing barely heats up, Decent price/performance ratio

Virtually useless front-facing camera, No camera flash, Short battery life, Low-contrast screen, Touchscreen sometimes inaccurate, GPS tracking not always precise

Unruffled by the somewhat confusing name-giving policy of Microsoft's low-cost smartphones, price-conscious buyers will always find a good bargain among them. The Lumia 532 comes with an acceptable camera, enough power for smooth use and a lot of...

Microsoft's latest Lumia, 532, continues budget play with Cortana and entry-level specs

 

Microsoft announced its latest low-cost Lumia, the Lumia 532, on Wednesday. If models in the 1000 range are its most high-end, then you can guess where the 532's specs fall. There will be the latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system and Cortana voice...

The 532 costs €79, just €10 more than the very closely related Lumia 435. That translates to about $100, £60, and in Australia it's been confirmed for AU$149 -- just AU$20 more than the 435.

Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM Review

 

Microsoft announced the Lumia 532 Dual SIM smartphone along with the single SIM variant earlier this year. It was launched in India in February at Rs. 6,499. As a successor of last year's Lumia 530 , the Lumia 532 has more (1GB) RAM, more internal...

Good Build; Good performance; Nokia’s apps and bundled offers

Average display; Fixed-focus camera without flash

Overall, the Lumia 532 Dual SIM is a good upgrade to the Lumia 530 Dual SIM. There are several improvements in terms of specifications and software. Lumia Denim adds several features and the performance is smooth. The smartphone is available in the...

Microsoft Lumia 532 Review

 

There is a surprising amount of phone packed in this cheap and cheerful offering on the Windows Phone platform.

It is also much more pleasant to use than an Android phone in this price range, thanks mostly to the efficiency of the Windows Phone platform.

Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM Review

 

The Microsoft Lumia 532 feels and works like a feature phone rather than the usual smartphone. It lacks performance, a good camera, a good screen and better options can be found powered by Android. The Lumia 532 is not a good buy and you will be better...

Sturdy build ; Good Audio ; Excellent network reception

Bulky build ; Sub par display ; Below average performance ; Poor camera implementation ; Poor battery life

Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM Review: Up Against the Android Army

 

Reasonable cost ; Good battery life

Low performance ; Mediocre camera, no flash ; Bulky and not very attractive

Microsoft clearly cannot win in this budget segment on the basis of features and specifications alone. The company has therefore tried to create an experience around its Lumia hardware and Windows Phone software. The attempt works to some extent, but...

Clear, Easy to use, Cheap but Good quality

 

I have had the phone for over a year. It has been perfectly reliable apart from a crack in the cover near the lens. I had to be very patient and persistent to get a new cover sent. It is much easier to use than my wife's Samsung. The reception has been...
