The affordable Lumia 530 was announced back in July and shortly after that T-Mobile and Nokia confirmed that the phone will be added to the carrier’s portfolio. The Magenta network didn’t waste words, although T-Mobile customers had to wait three months for the device to become available. The handset finally arrived at the stores where it sits among other budget-priced smartphones.
The Nokia Lumia 530 is an entry-level phone inside out. It features a 4-inch TFT display with 480 x 854 resolution and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. The phone comes with 512MB of RAM and only 4GB of built-in storage which luckily is expandable – the microSD slot can hold up to 128GB cards. Other features include a 5-megapixel rear camera, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, FM Radio, HSPA connectivity and a 1430mAh battery which should be good for up to 13 hours of talk time or up to 528 hours of standby time.
All these specs are packed into a relatively compact body measuring 4.7 x 2.5 x 0.5 inches and weighing in at 4.6 ounces. The Lumia 530 is completely up-to-date in terms of software as it ships with the latest version of Windows Phone platform, the 8.1 iteration complete with voice assistant Cortana. In addition to traditional black and white color options, the device is also available in cyan, orange and green.
Being a low-end phone, the Lumia 530 certainly won’t wow you with its specification. It seems, however, like a pretty decent offering for its price and could be an interesting alternative for users who want to try how Windows Phone experience feels like. If you are one of such users, you can grab the Lumia 530 from T-Mobile store.
