Hands on with the Microsoft Lumia 540

Like many other Microsoft Lumia models, the Microsoft Lumia 540 comes in a variety of colours. Ranging from black, blue, white and orange. The device itself has a glossy back case while a glass finish coats the front. Build quality of the Microsoft Lumia 540 is strong and sturdy. The front-facing 5MP camera embedded into the glass casing neatly hides away in the overall design. Typical of Microsoft Lumia smartphones, the microUSB port is at the bottom while the headphone jack is on the top. The IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is bright and full in its depth of colour. On the back sits the 8MP camera and LED flash. Image quality is outstanding, typical of Microsoft’s photo devices. As for the exterior, you’ll realise that the back cover comes off easily so you won’t chip your nails. That feature comes in handy if you love to open up your smartphone.
