Microsoft is dropping the Nokia brand from its Windows Phone based smartphones. Microsoft confirmed that the re-branding will begin in France to tech site, The Verge. This will future Windows Phone smartphone from the company being named Microsoft Lumia instead of the current Nokia Lumia.


Future Lumia phones will have the Microsoft brand replacing Nokia in the front and back.

Microsoft bought Nokia's mobile division in April for $7.2 billion. The deal included a clause that gave Microsoft the right to use the Nokia brand for up to 10 years.

With this re-branding, Nokia Lumia 730 and Lumia 830 will likely be the last Smartphones to bear the Nokia branding. However, Nokia feature phones and basic phones will continue to use the Nokia branding.

Microsoft sold 9.3 million Lumia phones last quarter, a 5.6% increase over same period last year.

Nokia Lumia 530 Review - First Impression

Nokia Lumia 530 aims to continue where the Lumia 520 left off. It is the cheapest Lumia phone available in Nigeria, even cheaper that the Nokia X. I have been trying out the phone in the last couple of days and will be sharing my first impression review here like I promised during the Lumia 530 unboxing.

Nokia Lumia 530

Like I have always said in almost all the article I have written about the Nokia Lumia 530, I do not consider it a replacement or an upgrade for the Lumia 520. So, I will not recommend it for anyone currently using the 520, except if dual-SIM is important to you and you can't afford the Lumia 630.

I also noticed that the Nokia Lumia 530 runs a bit faster than the 520, thanks to its quad-core processor. However, the speed is not very big to be noticed except you place the two phones side by side.

Nokia Lumia 530 is built for first time smartphone users. So, if you have been using Nokia Asha phones and other feature phones or even some of the crappy ultra-cheap Android phones, the Lumia 530 might just wow you. So here is the review:

The Design

Nokia Lumia 530 is comfortable to hold
Nokia Lumia 530 is more compact than the Lumia 520, which makes it more comfortable to hold (for me at least). Looking at it, it appears the compact size was achieved because the capacitive touch buttons have been moved from below the screen to the screen, shaving off some mm in the process.

Nokia Lumia 530 takes the same rounded corner design of the Lumia 630. The back does not offer much friction, but because of the small size you can wrap your hand around for a more comfortable grip.

A 5 megapixels camera is located on the top end of the back with an opening for the speaker on the lower end and Nokia logo in the middle.
Nokia Lumia 530 back
The left side of phone is blank with no buttons or ports. However, two buttons are located on the right side. The first the the volume control and below it is the power button. So, there is no dedicated camera button like in the 520. But, a camera shortcut is available as a default shortcut in the notification center.

On the top side of the Nokia Lumia 530 is the 3.5mm port for your headphone or earbud. On the bottom side is a micro USB port for charging and data syncing with your computer.

The SIM slots and the microSD slot are not accessible until you remove the back. Nokia Lumia 530 supports two micro SIM cards and up to 128GB microSD card.

With the capacitive buttons gone, the 4-inch screen is very prominent in front. You can also find the openings for the earpiece on top and the mouthpiece on the bottom end.

Overall the design is good. Handling is very natural and easy. using the Lumia 530 with one hand will not be an issue.

The Display

Nokia Lumia 530 offers a 4-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels resolution. This means that on paper the Lumia 530's display should be better than that of the Lumia 520. However, that was not the case.
Lumia 530 front
The display of the Lumia 530 appears a bit more pixelated with a more narrow viewing angle compared to the Lumia 520. The display is great indoors, but not so great outdoors which is usually the case with most low cost smartphones.

However, you can increase the screen brightness of the display for a more manageable view outside. However, unlike the Lumia 520 that has automatic screen brightness that brightens the screen according to the ambient lighting, the Lumia 530 have to be manually set to your required brightness.

The Camera

Nokia Lumia 530 has a 5 megapixels fixed focus camera on the rear side. It is a basic camera and offers no LED flash. Even without flash, the camera takes good quality photos with accurate colour reproduction.

The camera also offers a burst feature that takes several shots allowing you choose the best shot to be saved. This enables you choose the sharpest photo, and remove blurred images. The camera can record up to FWVGA video (854 x 480 pixels).

Nokia Lumia 530 lacks a front facing camera.

The Performance

Like I stated earlier, the Nokia Lumia 530 performs very smoothly. It sports a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and a 512MB RAM. The downside however is the battery. The 1430 mAh battery does not offer enough mileage.

That said, the battery is as good (if not better than) other phones within the said price point. It can take you through a work day of moderate use. It can take over 5 hours of browsing on full charge.

I used it as a Wi-Fi hotspot for over 4 hours and still had about 40% charge left.

Nokia Lumia 530 comes with 4GB built-in storage, but only about 1GB is free for the user. You can upgrade the storage to up to 128GB via microSD memory card. It is a good idea to buy a memory card for your Lumia 530.

The Software

Nokia Lumia 530 runs on Windows Phone 8.1, which brings some improvements. The most notable is the Notification centre, which gives you one click access to all your notifications from messages.
Lumia 530 Windows Phone 8.1 UI
The notification centre also comes with four shortcuts. The phone comes with default shortcuts, but you can change it to whatever feature you want using the notifications+actions option in settings. The notification centre also gives you one click access to settings.

With the capacitive buttons gone from below the screen, they are now located on the lower part of the screen. There functions still remain the same.

With the screen locked, clicking the power button takes you to the lock screen. Swiping up the lock screen gives you access to the Live Tiles. Swipe left to access the list of apps and down to access the notification centre.

The software runs smoothly. Loading an app may take seconds, but once loaded they run surprisingly well.

Communications

Mobile phones are primarily for communication and Nokia Lumia 530 performs quite well in this department. Call quality is good with fast data on both SIMs. Unlike most cheap dual-SIM smartphones that offer 3G only on the primary SIM, Lumia 530 offers fast 3G data on both SIM cards, which is a plus.

The network that offers the best data deals might have network issue sometime. With Nokia Lumia 530, you get fast internet on both SIM cards, ensuring you continue to browse in highspeed whether your preferred network is having a network issue which can be quite often in Nigeria.

Nokia Lumia 530 can receive calls on both SIMs using the Smart Dual SIM. So if you are receiving a call on a SIM and someone calls you on the other SIM, the call is forwarded to the current SIM you are using. However, this feature is not available automatically, you have to go to the network+ option in settings for the option.

Video streaming is very smooth on the Lumia 530 whether you are using 3G or Wi-Fi. I also found it very useful as a Wi-Fi hotspot. I connected my laptop and phones successfully to the hotspot. Up to 8 devices can be connected.

Conclusion

Nokia Lumia 530 is a good entry level smartphone. It suffers from similar issues as other cheap phones like low battery life and poor quality display, but still manages to excel in some key areas with a smooth performance and high speed internet on both SIMs. The camera also offers better photos than most phones around the same price even without flash and autofocus the burst features ensures blur-free photos.

I will recommend the Nokia Lumia 530 for first time smartphone users. If you have been using Nokia Asha phones or a feature phone, Lumia 530 is a step forward and good value for money. However, if you are using the Lumia 520 it is not much of an upgrade.

Nokia Lumia 530 vs Lumia 520 - Compare

Nokia Lumia 530 is positioned to replace the Lumia 520. It features faster quad-core processors, runs on newer Windows Phone 8.1, and comes with dual-SIM option with an affordable price tag. But should owners of the Lumia 520 upgrade to 530? We compare the two phones to guide you in making the right buying decision when faced with the two options.

Having used both the Nokia Lumia 520 and the Lumia 530, we have updated this article to reflect our experience with the two phones read our Lumia 530 Review

The Design

Nokia Lumia 530 comes in colourful polycarbonate shells as the Lumia 520, but the edges are now more rounded like the Lumia 630. Lumia 530 will be available in Bright Orange, Bright Green, White, or Dark Grey.

Nokia Lumia 530 is slightly shorter and thinner than the 520, but is thicker and heavier. While the former is 11.7 mm thick and weigh 129 g the later is just 9.9 mm and weigh 124 g. The difference is so slight that you may not even notice. In both cases the shells are swappable, so you can switch colours.

Microsoft also dropped the three physical or hardware capacitive soft keys on the Lumia 530, which in part contributed to the more compact design of the 530. The keys are now part of the touchscreen, which means they now take some space on the screen, unlike the 520.

The Display

Both phones feature 4.0-inch displays. However, while the Lumia 520 features an IPS display, the new Lumia 530 comes with a TFT display. This means that Lumia 520 may offer better viewing angles, since IPS is better than TFT in this respect. This looks more like a downgrade, if you ask me.

In our earlier comparison, before we actually reviewed the Lumia 530, we inferred that since Lumia 530 offers a higher resolution with 480 x 854 pixels compared to the 480 x 800 pixels of the Lumia 520, that its display could offer a better view.

However, having used both device, we consider Lumia 520's display as superior.

The Hardware

Both phones come with 512MB of RAM, but the Lumia 530 promises better performance with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. For comparison, Nokia Lumia 520 offers only a 1GHz dual-core processor. So, it goes without saying that if the Lumia 520 can run so smoothly on dual-core processors, the Lumia 530 should perform better.

Microsoft reduced the storage capacity by half, now offering 4GB built-in storage on the Lumia 630 compared to 8GB on the 520. However, the former now supports up to 128GB microSD compared to the 64GB of the later. Nokia Lumia 530 also come bundled with 15GB of free Cloud storage (OneDrive).

The Software

Nokia Lumia 530 will be coming with Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box. Microsoft have now provided Windows Phone 8.1 update for Lumia 520 since August. This means both smartphones now offer software, once you upgrade your 520. That said, because Lumia 530 is coming with Windows Phone 8.1 preloaded, it is likely to be better optimised for Windows Phone 8.1, add the quad-core processor and the 530 offers smoother performance, though not very noticeable with current update.

Windows Phone 8.1 come with new refinements like the new Action Centre and the amazing Work Flow on-screen keyboard. Microsoft's intelligent digital assistant, Cortana, though currently on Beta only for consumers in the United States, is also bundled with Windows Phone 8.1. You can now also personalise the background of the Start Screen.

Both phones offers Microsoft Office apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint as well as OneNote for note-taking.

The Camera

Both Lumia Phones come with a 5 megapixels camera on the back. But the Lumia 520's camera has the edge with support for autofocus and 720p HD video recorders. Lumia 530 offers fixed focus and 480p video recording, but offers burst which takes multiple photos at a time allowing you choose the best shot. That said, the camera on the Lumia 530 is good, not just as good as that of the Lumia 520.

Single SIM or Dual SIM

One major compelling feature of the Nokia Lumia 530 is that it offers a dual-SIM option, which means two SIM cards can be supported enabling you access two networks on your phone. Nokia Lumia 520 is single SIM. Both smartphones require micro SIM cards. Note that Lumia 530 will also offer a single SIM variant, so make sure you confirm SIM support before you buy.

One edge that Nokia Lumia 530 have over other cheap dual-SIM phone is that both SIM cards can offer fast 3G internet.

The Conclusion

Nokia Lumia 530 may be replacing the Lumia 520, but is not an upgrade in every respect. For me, the Lumia 530 seems to be targeted at users currently using Nokia Asha or Symbian and looking for an upgrade. Lumia 530 will be an amazing upgrade for such crowds. If you are currently using, the 520, 530 might not be the upgrade you are looking for.

However, if you want a faster and smoother 520 with dual-SIM support and don't mind the tradeoffs in the display and camera, the Nokia Lumia 530 will be great for you.

Nokia Lumia 530 Specs & Price

Nokia Lumia 530 is Microsoft's low cost Windows Phone, expected to replace the iconic Lumia 520. It will come with the newer version of Windows Phone (WP 8.1) and run on quad-core processors, despite coming at a cheaper price. Nokia Lumia 530 features a 4-inch screen and is available in single-SIM and dual-SIM variants. It is great for Nokia fans still stock in the Asha and Symbian world due to cost and could open the door for even cheaper smartphones running on the Windows Phone OS.

The Cheap Windows Phone

The biggest selling point for the Nokia Lumia 530 is that it is now in Android company. It is cheap, it runs on quad-core processors, has a 5 megapixels camera, has a 4-inch display, and has a Dual-SIM option. Compared to Android phones from reputable brands within its price point, the Nokia Lumia 530 is quite compelling.

Nokia Lumia 530 comes with the more recent Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box with new refinements like the new Action Centre and the amazing Work Flow on-screen keyboard. Microsoft's intelligent digital assistant, Cortana, though currently on Beta only for consumers in the United States, is also bundled with Windows Phone 8.1.

The phone will also come with popular Microsoft apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint preloaded, so you can be productive while on the move.

Nokia Lumia 530 is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 512MB of RAM. Lumia 520 ran smoothly on dual-core, so with quad-core processor, we expect the Lumia 530 to run a bit faster. It features 4GB storage like most smartphones in its price point, but unlike most of them, you can slot-in a microSD card of up to 128GB. Nokia Lumia 530 also comes bundled with 15GB of OneDrive Cloud Storage.

Display & Camera

Nokia Lumia 530 features a 4.0-inch display. The display is not IPS like the 520, so the viewing angle might not be as good, but it offers better resolution with 480 x 854 pixels. Nokia Lumia 530 features a 5 megapixels camera, just like the 520. However, the camera is fixed focus and records 480p video not as impressive as the 720p HD capability of the Lumia 520.

However, with Nokia's advanced imaging tech, you should expect the camera to be better than most phones within its price point.

Pricing and availability

Nokia Lumia 530 is now available in Nigeria. You can buy the phone at leading online stores in Nigeria. Nokia Lumia 530 Price in Nigeria ranges from N17,000 to N25,000 depending on your location in the country.
