Nokia Lumia 530 Review

Nokia Lumia 530 seems to be an entry-level budget phone that brings a number of improvements over its predecessor, Nokia Lumia 520. It retains the plastic body of brilliant color, solitary 5MP camera as well as diminutive 4-inch screen. The device sports some slight boost to screen resolution that now becomes 854 x 480 pixels. It also carries a newer Snapdragon 200 quad-core Qualcomm processor of 1.2GHz.



Phones within this price bracket often appear to be chubby and rounded, with the Lumia 530 being no exception. Users get to select from funky orange or bright green options and more conservative customers can enjoy white and black choices too.



On average, Nokia Lumia 530 is a regular phone which weighs 129g and measures 119.7 by 62.3 by 11.7mm. The plastic back panel is comfortable to hold and smooth, offering little by way of grip. A small opening is present for speaker near the bottom section, with middle part sporting a Nokia logo and camera lens near top position.



Left spine of Lumia 530 is somewhat naked, with the top part having standard 3.5mm headphone jack and the bottom edge having a micro USB port. There is also a volume rocker having power button below on the right spine and this phone affords the user easy application with one hand.



It will be important to force off back panel in order to access the microSD and SIM card slots tucked under a removable battery. Anyone who has used higher-end phones might notice the poor contrast and limited brightness, along with generally washed out look. Lumia 530 from Nokia is not laden with seams and its back is fully covered, giving the phone a uniform body appearance.



It is the first Windows phone offering storage of 4GB, since previous versions of the OS by Microsoft mandated a minimum of 8GB. As such, the device might be unable to accommodate a large volume of video content. No physical soft keys or camera button are present too on this phone, which sports a considerably low-resolution display which is however not greatly felt due to the small nature of its 4-inch screen.



Quality of calls is excellent when using Nokia Lumia 530, which is a prime reason for acquiring this phone. It sports a clear and loud earpiece and employs sensible approach to low-cost cancellation of noise. Although the device does not remove background noise, it allows your voice to run over remarkably well, without sounding robotic. The speakerphone is appreciably loud as well, considering the phone’s size and speakerphone transmissions are also very clear. In addition the Lumia does not experience trouble working with Bluetooth headsets.



Lumia 530 features Wi-Fi calling too, although the old version and not newer sleeker one. All the same this function facilitates calls over Wi-Fi, but these tend to be troubled specially starting at 50 feet. The gadget has suitable selection for budget phone users.

  • The Good :
    Design, Clear sound during calls, Supports for Micro SD card, Convenient one-handed use
  • The Bad :
    Average battery life, No front camera, Fairly poor display
Our score:
3.5 / 5
