When I thought of buying a phone "Microsoft" is my first choice.
First I thought of buying Lumia 550 but after a long research in Internet I decided to buy Lumia 540 and I must tell that it makes me satisfied beyond my expectations.Before buying I read the reviews of the user and I got a little bit of tensed by reading the negative reviews.
But finally when the phone is on my hands I can say one thing"beyond imagination".
shiva, 26 May 2016How to upgrade it to windows 10 Upgrade to Windows is a smooth process. You need 2 things 1) at least 2 GB WIFI or 3g mobile data, the main file will be at least 1 GB in size and than you have to update the other small apps also. 2) patience. It will take at least or about 2 hours, the download process is short, but installing. Rebooting and migrating the data rakes a lot of time. Do it in a time when no one will call you or message. As for the process, it is 2 step process. Here are the steps. A) first download a small app from the "store" called "Upgrade Advisor",it is 2 /3 MB app, than run it. It will show that "your device has update available". B) Start the upgrade process than. My personal advice. 1) when doing upgrading, plug the device to power board. 2) do the upgrading at night or early morning . Or you can use the Sims on another device temporarily, if you want to stay connected. Overall I did in my 540 and 535 without any problems. So, best of luck and follow the steps. Also please do not install any Windows preview from 3 rd party source. Just upgrade it as I have advised.
VACRA, 30 May 2016My Microsoft Lumia 540 heating very badly, it heated up even for 10 minute internet browsing, ... moreGet the latest "phone update" now to solve the battery problem. As for heating on browsing, yes a little bit of heat is very normal. But if it is too much than you have to dug for other reasons.

Niraaz, 31 May 2016Just hardreset ur phone & install only necessay apps now bettery consumption allmost great... moreI have updated both my 540 and father's 535 to latest windows 10 update. It took about 1 hour. Now at least the battery problem is solved. My 540 is consuming less battery like earlier now, 1% in 1 hour in standby mode in night running "quiet hours" which is acceptable. Before that I lost at least 30% in just 6/7 hours in night even in air plane mode. As for apps, I do not use a lot of them, got few productive, travelling and shopping apps only with hike, Skype, what's app etc. Anyway finally I am happy that the battery problem is solved. I will advice all 540 and 535 users to update the OS immediately. Trust me it is a real nightmare to see you charged the phone to 100% before going to sleep and when you wake up after 6/7 hours you see battery level is 57%, you wonder are you sleeping or playing/ talking on the phone whole night.

Shankar, 24 May 2016Hey hii.... I have upgraded my lumia 540 to windows 10. It works nicely. But sometimes it not ... moreWhat about the battery draining? I have 540 and 535. Both now consumes more battery with Windows 10.
Anonymous, 23 May 2016Hello everyone... This is a good phone. I use it from last 10 month.. It is done with a great ... moreI have upgraded 540 and 535 to Windows 10 successfully. Faced no major problems. Only both the phones are consuming more battery. Even in standby mode it happens. I have not added any new apps or changed the memory card. But still the battery problem is very very annoying. I mean earlier I have to charge it for 1 or 2 times daily. Now it is 3 or 4. Even I night in stand by mode I lost almost half which is very irritating, so now i switch it off it night.
Using it for almost 1 year. I replaced it with my galaxy device as I need break from hanging, cleaning and updating issues with Android. Anyway I have faced no problem with it, untill I upgraded to Windows 10. Now my 540 is lot like a android device, I mean heavy battery consuming. I removed every unused app. But still it is draining like Nile river. In standby mode in night I lost usually 25%/30%, where as earlier it is 15%/10% average with Windows 8. Also now the Microsoft has also selled the business. So, I have doubt about the store and future updates. Let's see what happens.
