Five must-have apps for your new Lumia 540 Dual SIM

The recently announced Lumia 540 Dual SIM packs in a 5-inch HD display, an 8-megapixel camera and much more for as little as $149 USD. Load it with apps and you’ll achieve more for less.

The built-in Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) turns the compact but powerful Lumia 540 Dual SIM into a portable office when you need to get things done. However, check out the following apps from the Windows Phone store for when you’ve got some downtime.

Netflix – Free


Everyone loves sitting down to a movie or two. Thankfully, Netflix has thousands of movies to keep you entertained, plus a vast selection of TV episodes and box sets.

Netflix provides an all-you-can-eat service, which means you can watch what you want, when you want, as often as you want–no limits.

You can also start watching your favorite movie on your Lumia 540 Dual SIM and resume watching it later on your Surface Pro 3 or Xbox One.

While the Windows Phone app is free, Netflix is a subscription service. More details can be found here.

Make the most of the camera

The Lumia 540 Dual SIM features a 5-megapixel front-facing wide-angle camera that’s perfect for two things: video calling and selfies.

Skype – Free



Words alone are a wonderful way to converse with your friends or family, but it’s always nicer when you can communicate face-to-face.

Skype makes it easy to do this, and with years of connecting voice calls all over the world, Skype’s seamless integration into your phone means you can video-call directly from the People Hub.

Lumia Selfie – Free


If you prefer people to see your face non-moving, maybe a simple selfie will suffice.

With the Lumia Selfie app, you can take a photo of yourself and use the enhancements function to whiten your teeth and soften your skin, then add some filters to add some extra depth.

Instagram – Free

On the back of the Lumia 540 Dual SIM is an 8-megapixel camera.

Get involved in the photographic social network that is Instagram, and capture the wonderful moments that pass in front of you.

On the flip side, you’ll not only contribute to this community, you’ll also be able to see other people’s creations in glorious high definition.

Candy Crush Saga – Free

Candy never looked as sweet as it does on the Lumia 540 Dual SIM’s HD display.

Power your way through the Candy Kingdom by switching around the tasty treats that occupy more than 600 levels!


Match at least three identical candies to “crush” them. Match even more and you earn power ups.

For an alternate reality, after level 50 you’ll open up Dreamworld where you’ll play along an owl named Odus.

The Lumia 540 Dual SIM is now available in IMEA and APAC regions, and in Italy with an RRP of $149 USD before local taxes and subsidies.
