Never compromise box

Some bloggers in India recently received a black box from Microsoft containing a Lumia 532 and a miniature-boxing ring. It was a quirky and offbeat invite to review the new affordable Lumia with other smartphones in the same price range.

Now, here’s a sampling of the tech bloggers’ boxing matches comparing the Lumia 532 with the other devices.

Abhishek Bhatnagar from GadgetsToUse set the agenda, giving five reasons why, in his opinion, the Lumia 532 performs better than “most low-cost Android phones.”


Abhishek praised the Lumia 532’s capabilities, saying, “Multitasking is handled much effectively on Windows Phone than the Android phone.”

Rohit Khurana from Intellect Digest did a similar hands-on session in his video review, “Knockout with Lumia – Microsoft Lumia 532 VS Android Face-Off #NeverCompromise.”


Rohit concluded that the Lumia 532 should be an obvious choice for people who need to perform simple, everyday tasks effortlessly on their phones.

“A quick comparison of three simple tasks that a person would normally do, such as checking unread notifications, unlocking the phone and searching for a website on the Internet … found that the Lumia 532 does a better job at performing these usual tasks,” he said, adding, “It does the job faster than comparatively priced android-based smartphones.

Rohit scored the bout this way: 3 points to the Lumia 532 and 0 for the competition device.
