The Finnish Smartphone brand Nokia, which is now owned by Microsoft Devices has launched their next budget friendly offering in the Lumia Series. The latest offering has come in the form of Nokia Lumia 530, which is the successor of the most successful Lumia Smartphone i.e. the Nokia Lumia 520 and the Nokia Lumia 525.

The Nokia Lumia 530 is expected to be launched by the end of August 2014, with an attractive and affordable price tag between Rs.6, 000 to Rs.7, 000 in India. Running on the latest Windows Phone 8.1 Operating System, the Nokia Lumia 530 will face a tough competition from the Motorola Moto E and Micromax Unite 2 in India.

The Nokia Lumia 530 has many new updates, while comparing it to the predecessors. It has a better processor and it runs on the updated Windows Phone 8.1 OS, which boasts various new added features. However, this still smartphone lacks behind in the race because of many reasons.

Here, we bring you the top 5 reasons, why one should not buy Nokia Lumia 530.


The biggest drawback on the Nokia Lumia 530 is the low RAM. This smartphone is powered by a decent 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 Quad-Core Processor. But it is supported by 512MB RAM only. Whereas, the biggest competitor of this smartphone, the Moto E and Micromax Unite 2 have 1GB of RAM, which is helpful in running huge apps and games on the device.

No LED Flash

The Nokia Lumia 530 houses a 5 Megapixels rear camera, which can take decent quality images in the daylight. However, it misses an LED flash for taking images in low light conditions. Hence, if you love to click images on the go, the Nokia Lumia 530 is not made for you.

App Store Support

It is well known the Google Play Store owns numerous useful applications and entertaining games, which are not present on the Windows Phone Store. On the other hand, paying almost the same amount, you could enjoy the wide world of Android Apps and Games, with on Moto E or Unite 2.

No Selfie Camera

Nowadays, the selfie fashion is trending. People of all ages have got the selfie fever. But the Nokia Lumia 530 misses a front facing secondary camera for taking your selfies. Nokia Lumia 530 targets college going youth, but because of no secondary camera for selfie, it misses the goals as well.

Slightly Overpriced

There is no official word by the officials regarding the price tag of upcoming Nokia Lumia 530 in India. However, going with the expected price tag, we feel that this smartphone is slightly overpriced. With the specs and features, the Nokia Lumia 530 should be priced around Rs. 5, 000 for grabbing huge success in the Indian smartphone market.
