Microsoft last Friday night announced the availability of the Microsoft Lumia 535 Dual SIM, the first Microsoft branded smartphone, in Uganda.
Brand ambassadors explained the functionality of the phone and what features it comes with. Some of the captivating features they talked about are:
• Making Skype video calls with the 5MP wide angle front facing camera, and seamlessly switch between voice and video with built-in Skype integration.
• Accessing, editing and sharing Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents and OneNote notebooks, with the pre-installed Office suite.
• Saving and syncing photos, videos and Office documents securely with 15GB of free OneDrive cloud storage.
• Ability to connect with work and personal e-mail while on the go, with Microsoft Outlook built-in.
“Many people, especially the younger audience, aspire to own the latest flagship smartphone but often don’t have the means to get it,” says Mariam Abdullahi, General Manager Microsoft Mobile Device Sales, East Africa. “With access to the best services right out of the box, including the Windows Phone 8.1 update, Lumia Denim, The Lumia 535 Dual SIM helps people do more of what they want, for less.”
Daniel Arinaitwe one of the guests said he liked this phone’s camera, but wasn’t sure about its battery life. “Most smartphones disappoint when it comes to its battery life. Yes, the features may be cool but is the battery strong enough,” he queried. A quick Google search about this phones battery life showed that it goes for as long as 11 hours with average usage.
