The Nokia Lumia 530 is an entry-level smartphone developed by Microsoft Mobile that runs the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system.

On November 10, 2014, Microsoft released its successor, the Microsoft Lumia 535, with a 1-inch larger IPS display, double tap to wake, ambient light sensor, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 8 GB of internal memory (vs 4 GB), 1GB of RAM (vs 512 MB), larger 1905 mAh battery (vs. 1430mAh), 5 MP front-facing camera (vs. no FF camera), auto-focus for the rear camera (vs fixed focus), and LED Flash (vs. no flash).[2][3]

Hardware[edit]

The Lumia 530 comes in a slate form factor with 4-inch touchscreen. The viewing angles are slightly reduced compared to other phones in the Lumia line.

Software[edit]

The Lumia 530 ships with Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1, as well as exclusive software like Nokia Mix Radio and HERE Maps (featuring turn-by-turn directions, offline maps and navigation, and transit info).

Reception[edit]

Ars Technica considers the Lumia 530 a step in the wrong direction. In comparison to its predecessor, the Lumia 520, the Lumia 530 is worse as it removes the dedicated camera button, has a worse display with poor contrast, color, and viewing angles, and it’s susceptible to backlight bleed and has a worse GPU. The limited amount of RAM makes some games not able to run and cripples the multitasking ability making apps switching slow.[4]

PC Advisor also considers the Lumia 530 to be worse than its predecessor, as it has a worse camera with fixed focus, instead of the auto-focus of the predecessor, half the storage size, and a worse graphics processor.[5]

Most reviews pointed out that Lumia 530 is a downgrade from Lumia 520, but it is important to note that 530 is accordingly sold at a lower price than 520. In terms of the price, Lumia 520 was replaced by Nokia Lumia 630 and its variants, while 530 aims for lower-end market that was previously not available for Windows Phone. 530 is also noted to share a lot of similarities with the short-lived Nokia X, with identical hardware specification, and the price that is lower than previous Lumia devices.
