Microsoft has struggled to make an impact in the smartphone industry, but it has still managed to produce some outstanding phones. It has managed to sneak into the Pakistani smartphone industry and has generally done quite well, especially their Lumia 435 Dual-SIM phone.
The phone is powered by Windows 8.1 and there are multiple versions that have been released of the mobile phone. Microsoft Lumia, previously known as Nokia, only offers 512MB RAM which may prove to be a hindrance for people who like to open multiple apps or play games on their smartphone. The phone is targeted to the low-end smartphone market, since there is nothing to write home about.
However, where it does score points is in the powerful long-lasting battery that it possesses along with a standby and talk-time that is going to seriously leave your surprised. Microsoft is trying really hard to crack the dominance of Samsung and Apple on the smartphone industry, but the 435 certainly isn’t going to be challenging any of their phones.
