Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has accepted there are touch issues in the affordable Lumia 535 and confirmed it will roll out a fix soon, says a report from WMPU. The Lumia 535 became an instant hit, as it offered a dual-SIM option for just a few euros, but some early buyers are now complaining about problems with the touch screen.
Microsoft to issue fix soon
Currently, users are facing two major issues in the smartphone: inaccurate multi-touch detection and low touch sensitivity, due to which the phone fails to detect the finger or registers it in the wrong place. Because of this problem, users are not able to properly access elements like the ellipse menu buttons, and they experience issues with the swipe-style keyboard. A Vietnam website published a video in which the Lumia 535 was shown with some touch issues that cause problems with WordFlow.
According to Microsoft, the touch sensitivity on the Lumia 535 is more than required, and hence, is causing major issues. Also Microsoft stated that soon there will be a fix released in the form of an over-the-air update.
Users who do not wish to wait for the official fix may try an option some users claim are working. De-activating Screen Magnifier (under Settings>Ease of Access), which is on by default, could help.
Lumia 535 not different from Nokia’s Lumias
The Lumia 535 offers a big screen and dual-SIM option, all at affordable price, which has been the unique selling point among Windows fans. However, users are not fond of the Snapdragon 200 Chip with its mediocre GPU performance. The company has claimed the Lumia 535 offers 13 hours of battery life on 3G connections, which was tested by GSM Arena experts and proven to be right. The single SIM model is also expected to deliver the same performance.
Microsoft’s Lumia 535 is not much different from the other Lumia budget phones, and the only difference is the Microsoft logo on the front and back. The Lumia 535 is similar to the Lumia 530 with rounded edges and multiple colored back covers. There is a difference of size, however, between the Lumia 535 and the Lumia 630.
The Lumia 535 is available with single SIM and dual-SIM slots. The smartphone has a 5-inch qHD IPS LCD display made of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to safeguard the phone against scratches. The Microsoft Lumia 535 has a 5MP rear camera with auto-focus and LED flash and a 5MP front-facing camera for a quick selfie. The camera resolution is 848x480p for both cameras. Other features in the phone are Bing vision, Creative Studio, Lumia Camera, and Lumia Selfie camera apps.
