Nokia Lumia 530

 

Sometimes you get less than you pay for

Looks better than some budget phones

Low-power processor causes performance issues, TN screen is ugly, Very limited internal memory

Nokia Lumia 530 review

 

The Nokia Lumia 530 is the latest Windows Phone device tasked with blazing a path into your pocket without costing a bomb. Its goal, quite simply, is to bring the advantages of modern devices to more people. The sub-£100 price of the Nokia Lumia 530...

Price point, solid and colourful design, Windows Phone 8.1 operating system improvements

Display resolution and no auto-brightness sensor, camera limitations, lacks power, competition now stronger

The sub-£100 price of the Nokia Lumia 530 makes it difficult to ignore, but the performance makes it difficult to fully recommend.

Nokia Lumia 530 review

 

A small smartphone for a small price

Very cheap ; Micro SD card support ; Snappy performance ; Easy to use one-handed

No front camera ; No flash ; Limited battery life ; Fairly poor display

The Lumia 530 wants to claim the budget crown in the face of stiff Android competition. It's a valiant effort that represents good value for money, but it's a case of two steps forward and one step back for Nokia.

Nokia Lumia 530 review

 

The Lumia 530 is a big improvement on its predecessor, but its low price is still false economy against the superior Lumia 630

Nokia Lumia 530 is cheap, basic and available worldwide

 

The dead-simple Windows phone lacks sophistication in exchange for defending one of the lowest costs in the industry.

The inexpensive Nokia Lumia 530 is equipped for HSPA+ speeds and can hold up to 128GB in external storage. It includes Microsoft's most current Windows Phone OS.

A surprisingly slippery body makes you a constant butterfingers, and typing is tough on the small screen. The fixed focus camera won't take close-up shots.

Since specs are decidedly basic, its low price is the major reason to seek out the Nokia Lumia 530.

Lumia 530 video review: cheap is not good value with a phone as poor as the Lumia 530

 

The display is a deal breaker for us, undoing the good work of the Lumia 530's performance and build quality. We want to see more storage, and the camera is no better than it ought to be. If you really are limited in budget, it is worth considering....

Nokia Lumia 530 Review: In Depth

 

Nokia's Lumia 530 is a £60 smartphone rocking the latest Windows Phone 8.1 and some impressive features for the price. Here's our full review of...

Amazing price

Screen rather washed out

For the money, we’re really impressed by what Nokia’s produced in the Lumia 530. If you want a no-fuss, user-friendly phone that can get online and do all your usual smartphoney functions, and even play games, this seems to be a great choice..

Nokia Lumia 530 UK smartphone review

 

The Lumia 530 retails for just £60. It will be the first smartphone for a multitude of people, and at that price it will fly off the shelves of every high-street phone store. And it will be available just about everywhere.

The disappointing thing about the Nokia Lumia 530 is that it feels like a worse phone than the Lumia 520 it replaces (albeit with a price cut). The display is a deal breaker for us, undoing the good work of the Lumia 530's performance and build...

Nokia Lumia 530 vs 520 comparison review

 

Many people (including me) have criticised Windows Phone in the past for many things. One of the biggest barriers preventing people (including me) from switching from their iPhones and Android smartphones is that the apps people want simply aren't...

It’s too early to give a definitive verdict on which smartphone is better, but it’s almost certainly not worth buying a 530 if you already have a 520. We’ll bring you a full review of the 530 when we can get our hands on one, and we’ll update this...

Motorola Moto G vs Nokia Lumia 530 comparison

 

The Motorola Moto G is the king of budget smartphones but Microsoft has just announced the Lumia 520 as a follow-on to the Lumia 520. What's the best budget smartphone? Read our Motorola Moto G vs Nokia Lumia 530 comparison (See our full: Nokia Lumia...

Despite being cheaper we don't think the Nokia Lumia 530 has what it takes to knock the Motorola Moto G from its budget smartphone throne. It has a lower hardware specs across the board and even though Windows Phone 8.1 includes many improvements,...
