Microsoft Lumia 850 Black - Expert Reviews

Introduction

Microsoft mobiles have never been able to overtake the likes of Android based smartphones as far as the sales are concerned. However, these have remained an integral part of the domain and have managed to create a separate niche for themselves as a competitive alternative to Android based smartphones. The Windows platform has always been intriguing and familiar since it has been used as an operating system in a majority of desktops and laptops.

This sense of familiarity has led a lot of smartphone enthusiasts to go for Microsoft Lumia phones, while others have found this OS a refreshing change from the ubiquitous Android smartphones with colourful devices further adding to their aesthetic appeal. Microsoft Lumia 850 price is supposed to be quite affordable, that is around Rs.12,999 giving it an edge over other Android based smartphones. However, nothing has been officially confirmed as of yet.

Design

Microsoft Lumia 850 is expected to be as colourful and elegant as other Lumia devices we have seen in the past. The gadget will definitely be available in vivid colours including Yellow, Green, Black, White and Blue. Lumia gadgets have always stayed ahead when it came to their appearance and aesthetics, and we expect nothing different with Microsoft Lumia 850.

Display

Microsoft Lumia 850 is said to feature a 5 inches multi-touch display that is going to be backed by a resolution of 768 by 1280 pixels. The pixel density is going to be 299ppi, which is again a decent number, and should deliver soothing picture quality and colour saturation. The display size is quite healthy allowing a decent breathing space for the user to play games, run apps and watch videos.

Camera

The camera strength for Microsoft Lumia 850 is said to be quite good with a 10MP primary rear camera and a 5MP secondary front camera. The primary camera of similar strength has done pretty well with other previous Windows based devices and therefore, it would not be farfetched to assume that the shutter will perform well with Microsoft Lumia 850 as well. Apart from possessing regular features like LED flash and auto focus, Microsoft Lumia 850 may also provide features like geo-tagging.

The secondary front camera with strength of 5MP is likely to carve out images at a resolution of 2592 by 1944 pixels. There would also be features like video calling and video sharing.

Processor

Microsoft Lumia 850 is said to run on a quad-core processor that would clock in at 1.4GHz, while it may also feature Adreno 306 GPU. Moreover, RAM is said to be of 1GB, which should make the device quite snappy and easy paced. Windows devices have a tendency to consume less amount of RAM than a standard Android phone and that is where the gadget would be able to provide faster performance.

Operating system and UI

Microsoft Lumia 850 is expected to come loaded with Windows 10 mobile operating system, which is home to several games and applications. There would be loads of free mobile apps and games that users of Microsoft Lumia 850 would be able to avail including Candy Crush, Temple Run 3, Asphalt, WhatsApp, Viber, Skype, Hike Messenger etc.

Connectivity

There would be no shortage of connectivity features with Microsoft Lumia 850 as the device is expected to garner facilities like Wi-Fi hot spot, dual band, and DLNA etc., for tethering. There is going to be plenty of other features as well including Bluetooth, USB port and infrared for exchanging data with other gadgets at a fast pace. There would be a GPS feature as well, ensuring users of Microsoft Lumia 850 to have the ability to navigate to their desired destination with relative ease.

Sensors

Windows gadgets have generally been quite fast and highly responsive in terms of their touchscreen experience. Therefore, Microsoft Lumia 850 is definitely going to be a fast working gadget backed by sensors like accelerometer sensor, gyro sensor, proximity sensor, compass sensors etc.

Memory

Microsoft Lumia 850 is said to feature 16GB of internal memory, which is certainly a decent amount of space for a Windows based gadget. Windows based smartphones tend to consume less amount of space for applications compared to Android smartphones. Therefore, 16GB of internal space is worth more in a Windows gadget as opposed to an Android device. Furthermore, the gadget will also get a microSD card slot for expanding the external memory.

Battery

Microsoft Lumia 850 is said to garner a 2650mAh standard lithium-ion battery that will be able to garner a long duration of talk time and standby time. Windows devices generally last for a longer duration since they are less power consuming than Android handsets. The device will certainly be expected to carve out a longer usage time, even with multimedia activities like music player and video player.

Other Features

  • Provide ZEISS technology for the main shutter, which is something that gave previous Windows based smartphones a lot of success
  • The display of Microsoft Lumia 850 would be protected by Gorilla Glass 3 technology
