I bought this phone as it was recommended for low reception rural area where I live. I'm amazed No one else has mentioned how difficult it is to remove the back cover, by either using the method suggested by Microsoft without dropping the phone & breaking the glass Screen as happened to me, the day I bought it while trying to install the battery & sim card. I have Never had a mobile phone that's this hard to open & will Never buy another Microsoft Windoze based mobile phone. I am unable to locate any option to load a photo of my choice on the home page instead of the Windoze programs installed on the phone. I was not able to transfer my contacts from either my old Android mobile or an old Nokia which has all my contact list that uses Windoze programs. Absolutely the Most Pathetic Design in a Mobile phone I've ever come across & having worked in the IT business for over a decade until 3 yrs ago, I've seen some really poor designs. Do yourself a Favour if this is all you can afford, save longer & buy another Mobile whatever you do Don't buy this Mobile Phone. I have had to order a new screen from China to have an intact unit & will be changing Mobile phones as soon as I can afford to do so.

To all people who are thinking to buy Lumia;
Windows phone platform is just rubbish when it comes to customization and ease of use, I have Lumia 532 and although its speedy and you can say works well, but even simple tasks are too difficult to perform,
I have been using Note2, and although Lumias are supposed to be SMART PHONES,I've experienced e.g
**No direct mute/silent selection
**Can't manage or export contacts to SIM
**Can't simply/directly dial calls from msgs
and so on and on..
Now wait for Windows phhone10,may be they improve these things.
Turn on quite mode..''
Tap name at top of message
Tasks are very easy Lagdroid is worse
In had purchased one Lumina 532 two months back from Kottayam
The back cover was broken and when I approached dealer he told that the Company is not supplying any parts in respect of this Mobile, I had made enquirers with the Cochin Office of Microsoft and they also informed the same.
Hence, this aspect may please kept in mind before purchasing lumina phones.
I bought this phone because my other one broke and I didn't had much money to spend on a new one so I picked this particular model. At first I thought this is gonna be a cheap entry level low spec smartphone with low quality, but I was disappointed in a good way. The touch sceen feedback is good, I'm satisfied with the speed of the processor, and the built in offline GPS is usefull and well working too. If you're searching for an affordable device for mostly basic usege, this is a good choice.

Anonymous, 05 Jun 2015some common features like 1.how to get the silent mode easily 2.how to get the zoom operatio... moreU can press the volume rocker. Then a volume bar comes upside of the screen. If you press that it will expand and you will see two sections "Ringer+ Notifications", "Media+Apps". Just side left the ringer option fully. Your phone will be in silent mode instantly. You can toggle vibration as well. This is given right below the volume bar. And for zooming in the main camera app just use "pinch in" and "pinch out". Have a nice day. :)
