Microsoft Lumia 540 Comes With Noteworthy Features

May 18, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We never expected the Lumia 540 to spread out such intense excitement in terms of the innards.

But we did expect the Lumia sibling to bring about some trivial upgrades in the predecessor, Lumia 535, which was the first to have been featured under the Microsoft brand.

And, after crossing the launch hurdle of the newbie, Microsoft has rolled out something that stays close to our expectations.

Lumia 540 is an essential upgrade to the Lumia 535 smartphone that Microsoft had released six months ago. However, instead of entirely shaking up the predecessor, Microsoft has decided to revamp some of the direct sighted aspects of it, leaving the rest to be the same.

Lumia smartphones barely bring a size upgrade in terms of display. 540 bears the same 5-inch sized display that was present in the predecessor, yet with an improved display quality this time.

It’s a 720p display that gets packed inside the 5-inch screen, yielding a pixel density of 294ppi. However, the same gets induced at the cost of display-protection. There’s no Corning Gorilla Glass to cover up your screen in Lumia 540.

The next better thing is with the camera, which now offers image snapping at 8MP quality. The front cam remains the same, but offers video capturing at 480p.

The battery also has been blessed with an upgrade. The removable battery now features a capacity of 2200mAh, an increase by around 15% from the former.

It will also feature Lumia Denim in the Windows 8.1 OS it runs, which will bring along an enhanced settings app to the Microsoft OS.

Lumia 540 will feature the same chip power as it was in the predecessor. The quad-core processor clocks to 1.2GHz, and comes accompanied by a 1GB RAM.

The graphics will be powered by Adreno 320. 8GB of storage space will be offered on-board, which can be expanded up to 128GB with microSD.

In terms of the design, Lumia 540 bears no difference except for the dimensions. The curvy edges have been retained, along with the power and volume key layouts. The only change has been with the semi-transparent layered design, which presents a translucent coating across the sides.

Lumia 540 is announced for a price of INR 10,199 in India, which is higher than its sibling by around INR 2000. The upgrade to an HD screen itself can reason the price variation, by which means it’s noteworthy to say that the new addition relatively does proves to be a solid one in terms of its value for money.
