Lumia 530 - Travel Buddy In Your Palm

November 2014

The Nokia Lumia 520 was the one of the best-selling Windows Phone handsets. With the 530, Nokia brings in a few improvements and retains the brightly-coloured plastic body, solitary 5MP camera, and compact 4-inch screen.

What Can Be Improved...

  • Being a basic phone the Lumia 530 comes only with a basic camera, which works better with mainly daylight photos.
  • An entry level phone also means the absence of a front-facing camera. OK, so no more selfies.

What Merlion Wayfarer Likes...

  • Many of the camera apps available in higher-end phones can be installed on this phone, e.g. Nokia Pro-Camera, which gives the feeling of control of an DSLR camera on an affordable entry-level phone.
  • With the dual SIM function and Nokia offline maps, the Lumia 530 is the perfect phone for that short getaway overseas.

  • Popular social apps such as Instagram, WhatsApp, Viber and WeChat, plus key gaming apps such as Asphalt 8, available in the Windows Phone Store
  • 4GB of on-board memory, expandable with SD cards up to 128GB.

  • And of course, the budget price of S$159 only!
