Had this phone for a while and love it, better yet come December we can boot to win 10 and sideload android apps and games so all is golden
Bought last month,
Phone is nice, everything's good, except music.
I am using this phone from 2 months its the best phone i have ever used, windows os is the best os now compare to android os, its easy to use. I suggest all to use lumia mobile. No issue till now.
For all the people who are planning to buy this:
Windows OS is anytime better than Android. I've developed apps for Android and truth is Android is not a long lasting OS. It is still in development. As far as Windows OS is concerned Its best in this budget not comparing iOS.
Heating issue if there is any, is in all devices even in iPhone.
Windows OS feels awkward initially but when you'll get used to of it you'll feel awesome.
OS is light so 1GB ram is equivalent to 3-4GB RAM in Android.
No 8 MP camera is good, coz no mobile manufacturer puts dedicated processor for camera in mobile. It's just how they present picture after click.
This phone can easily sustain 2-3 years but Android OS will start lagging and restarting.
Yes there are less apps available for Windows OS but all important apps are available, apps which are not available, you will really never use them.

Every thing is simple and open. only thing, when to compare to Android, same apps may not available here, still we can search for substitutes.

ali , 06 Nov 2015why. u must compare with high end device dude ,or mentally sick
I'm using lumia 540 for five months.it's a verrry good phone.if you want a lot of apps than it's not good because it has lack of apps but if you want a good look,a good battery backup,not hanging device and with a lot of memory (8gb+128gb) than this phone is made 4 you.i suggest everyone to buy this if you are not a fond of apps.
