According to Microsoft, it seems that the Lumia 535 has had a very positive effect on the Microsoft Windows Phone platform. It seems that as far as the Pakistan market is concerned, thanks to the Lumia 535, it helped to boost sales of Windows Phone handsets in the country by as much as 300%.
Patrick Mercanton who is head of marketing for Microsoft Mobile Devices in Near-East, North Africa, Levant and Emerging Asia was quoted as saying, “Our most successful Lumia smartphone ever is the Lumia 535, which was also the first to carry the Microsoft branding. It looks to be the highest selling smartphone in Lumia’s history in our region.”
Does this come as a surprise? Hardly, especially when you consider that its predecessor, the Lumia 520, was also one of the most successful Windows Phone handset of all times where it topped charts in countries such as India and Finland, and was also one of the most popular and used Windows Phone handsets, especially in the face of other Lumia devices with more powerful hardware.
