About Microsoft Lumia
Microsoft Lumia improves their inventory in the Philippines
Microsoft Lumia is a series of smart phones operating with Windows Phone operating system. The brand was previously named as Nokia Lumia, but in 2014 Microsoft Mobile purchased it and renamed it as Microsoft Lumia. Even though the brand was not named the same before, its products have not been altered as of yet, and they follow the same lineup of products even after the shift of ownership. All handsets are touch based smart phones, and they form the primary figurehead in Windows Phone based smart phones.
The Lumia series of smart phones was first introduced by Nokia in 2011. They partnered with Microsoft to bring forward a successful line of Windows Phone OS operating smart phones. However, in 2013 Microsoft announced that they have purchased Nokia’s line of smart phones, and thus formed the new Microsoft Mobile brand to take care of the Lumia series. Microsoft Lumia 535 was the very first device which had a non Nokia branding behind its back cover. It was first released on a global scale in November 2014, followed by an expansive release by early 2015. Still, the oldest device produced by this brand remains Lumia 800 which was released in November 2011 and operated under Windows Phone OS version 7.5.
Some of the common features in this series of smart phones include:
- The form factor in all Lumia devices is that of a bar. Even though this brand has produced some “phablets” but the overall structure remains constant in all devices.
- All devices use only Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Its Windows Phone OS is only compatible with a Snapdragon processor.
- All devices are touch screen based smart phones.
- This series is very well known to release multiple updates over time, which contain a combination of firmware and software upgrades. These upgrades bring about imaging improvements, along with tech support and bug fixes.

Reason for Popularity
The Filipino market has really taken quite fond of this series of smart phones. Even though Android OS smart phones have taken over the global market, but Windows Phone has its own charm. It is subtle with its minimalistic design interface, and it has certainly garnered quite a favorable user base in Philippines. So, as various features develop in the future, Microsoft will certainly gain a huge growth in their market share in the Philippines.
