Windows 10 Anniversary Edition has given more surprise than I anticipated.
1) The FM player has gone from both 535 and 540.
2) Now my camera in 540 is not working properly. Back camera is working sometimes and the front selfie camera has gone. Not able to work to despite hard setting my phone.
Now I am done with WP10, in next few days I am going to buy another samsung Galaxy or may be a Xiaomi device. But never ever a windows phone. MS knows how to f*** off its consumers by giving wild surprise. MY FINAL ADVISE DO NOT BUY A WINDOWS PHONE, GO FOR APPLE OR SAMSUNG OR ANYTHING WHICH IS NOT WINDOWS.
hey friend im planning to upgrade to win10. dont care about the other issue but i dont like the battery drain and lags n also want smoothness like 8.1. please help me i dont want to downgrade to previous one from win10 os. i will be thankful for ur suggetion
i'm not lying trust me that the phone is not worth for price. it have many major problems compare to same price android. when i purchased it i thought it is good as nokia lumia but i was wrong microsoft lets me down. microsot lumia are not that much great as i thought. battery drains quuckly, heats up high, bad performance, cant support fullhd, app gap, bad camera vision at niggt time but good in daylight, etc.
but there are some pros like good scren stylish os and build quality, good camera at day time good ear piece, no lags, etc
if u love windows dont buy this buy . but buy 640 which is good far away than 540.
im not suggesting not to buy this phone cuz you wont love this one sure. i know what it is n cant tell what i felt cu im the one who loves windows phone. im really angry to microsoft for not making good piece for us. i hope nokia will show again with android what it is. then im goona try that surely.
a beautiful hopeless product. the service also at par. this is completely a useless product without any sort of efficiency at all.
Cinera, 07 Aug 2016it is neccessery to up date win 10Yes, updating to windows 10 will make your device faster, better, stable and more reliable. Also unless you update to windows 10 you will lose access to many apps. I just got my 540 and 535 to windows 10 anniversary edition and now my phones are doing great.
nauman, 06 Aug 2016what about the use of 3g in this phone, is it working fast?Yes 3g is very good. I am using it with Vodaphone. In fact I use my 540 as wifi hotspot to access net from my laptop and work online.
sai, 13 Aug 2016i bought my Lumi 540 phone on 10-8-2016 my phone is very heating so pls sollution for this problemFirst got the latest Windows 10 edition upgrade on your device.
Second plug the device to a laptop and scan it with a good antivirus software.
Third check the Memory card and take a back up and than format it using phone and than store the data.
Fourth the device support memory card upto 32 GB, so please do not use bigger memory card than it.
I hope these steps will make your device better.
Gerald Damian, 17 Aug 2016Please help.. How can I install You Tube on this mobile. . Officially there so no "YouTube" app for windows 10. So, you cannot install it. But you can easily access YouTube from "Internet Explorer" (in case your using windows 8.2) or "Edge" (if you are using windows 10).
transpeter97, 18 Aug 2016DO NOT BUY. One of the worst phones out there. It shuts down on me while i just look at normal... moreDid you upgraded to Windows 10? I am using 540 and 535 for last 1 year and did not face any major issues. As for app store, compare to google and apple it has less option. But I found moat of the essential apps for my needs. I think you should update your OS to latest version and scan the device using USB to a laptop.
Got the anniversary windows 10 update on 540 and 535. Working fine. Major change is now you can access the camera from the lock screen which is great as you can now capture a photo fast. Other than that there are minor changes in settings. Also the font is changed and now you can float the keyboard at anywhere on the screen. Anyway now the con is the FM radio 📻 is gone from both my 540 and 535 which is not expected. When I saw that redio tile is not in my home screen, i thought may be deleted. So I go through the entire app menu. Also checked the 535 and never found it. It so sad. When I got windows 10 from windows 8.2; Mix Radio was gone, now the FM Radio is gone. Very very disappointed 😞
I have this phone for a year now and it has served me wonderfully. I would buy it again and again.
DO NOT BUY. One of the worst phones out there. It shuts down on me while i just look at normal pictures. Good camera btw. But selfie camera sucks. The app store is very limited even in Us region. Battery is long lasting on the condition u put brightness to automatic. Listening to music on this device is annoying as sometimes it just stops playing and the loudspeaker is not at all loud(my old first gen corby can beat it). Overall i wouldnt recommend it to anyone as the os is still somewhat unusable and crashes at unknown intervals.
No long battery,
Music problem while you travelling, cant use shareit with other phone, at the time of downloading you can't use background apps, can't install all apps, you cant switch off at the time of charging, vibration problem on ringtones. in short there are lots of limitations. worst phone for ever,
Please help.. How can I install You Tube on this mobile. .
