K11x, 24 Aug 2014Others why should I use simple ui with lesser features when I can use comlicated Ui's with mor... moreFirstly which features is WP missing? Second, will you download all apps on android? How does it matter whether one has 1m apps and the other 300k?
Second, how many features has iOS got? Does it support external memory? Bluetooth ft? File explorer? Save third party music? It does not even support latest hardware. Still has it not got over 10% market share? The logic is simple, iOS came first, then android and then market got saturated. When WP came in, the market was already occupied. It is difficult to make your presence in an occupied market. Ask Google+, Bing, Linux etc.
Symbian was first gen OS, it dominated then. Once iOS and android came along, nooone wanted Symbian. Nokia was too late to realize this and stuck with Symbian and other makers jumped to android.
And your statement that people love complicated things is totally rubbish. Windows was not complicated, Linux was. Google search was simple compared to MSN. Apple's iOS was simple and was a hit. Android could survive because iOS left a whole market open and bothered only about richer section.
If anyone here is a fanboy it is you
Hey guys don't be so fanboy you'll not going to get a single penny from the profit of these conpanies.
The conclusion can be like this
WP=Simple less customizable but speedy phone
Android=Most customizable but relatively slow(leave those 2.2ghz monsters they r too much expensive[great if you you can afford them]).
And please don't make people fool by your fanboy type reviews. :)
Others why should I use simple ui with lesser features when I can use comlicated Ui's with more features(apps).And who thinks android is boreing I wonder if you ever used any android mobile I think you have feared to use complicated things.Rest of others thats why wp can't make a impact still after 2years when within two yrs android got the whole world and Old guy Symbian dominated entire globe for ten years and Nokia made best mobile maker by it the secret behind these succes is their complictedness....people(most) loves to crack complicated things. Thank you ;)

Nokia is... moreDon't talk like a fanboy my friend I'm not fond of any other company but Nokia yes I have used 12 Nokia phones..they r symbian,meego,x and wp to.And for your kind information microsoft is slowly killing every bit of nokia from ms mobile,killing the store the xpress browser and the Branding of nokia too,belive it or not.And the Metro Ui(wp ui) it could be innovative I must accept it but it is not customizable at all leave those funny arrangements and transparent tiles they r just for fun coz not every tile supports transparency.And for me the Symbian UI on my Nokia N8 is far more better than any UI and better than Nokia's(MS') loved Metro ui too.Be more open eyed than a fanboy eyed.Thank you.
Anonymous, 19 Aug 2014Huge step back from 520. Thicker, no autofocus, a 4GB internal storage (520 had 8 GB). RIP WP!Yes, it is a huge step back. But it is not a successor of 520. Nokia already said it is an replacement for X and asha series. L630 is a successor of 520.
Lalllas, 20 Aug 2014Don't buy this phone its crappy period... Especially when you come from Android. It’s annoying... moreDo u ever touchd any windows phone8.1? Windows UI is the most simplest UI. If u can use dat complicated boring andro thn u can easily understand wp.

Who dnt have own ui, copied from others. Wp has the best UI. Tile UI is beautiful and easy to understand. Android has old, boring and complicated UIs.
Ulhaqpak, 17 Aug 2014In this price its the most stunning phone and please don't ever go for Android.... In entry... moreAndroid is the crappiest OS I have ever used. Even bada is better thn dat crap. Wp8.1 is the best OS.
Beltemps, 20 Aug 2014You're right when you compare entry prices, neeraj, but since the specs and hardware are almos... moreMicrosoft told 630 is a successor of 520. 530 is replacement of Asha and x series.

Nokia is never died. For your kind information metro UI(wp ui) is the award winning UI. Lagdroid and other OS has boring and old UI. If you find tile is boring thn you are not made for modern world.

Just one question " Can Vibre & Vonage be used on this Nokia Lumia 530"
Though I know it very well that my review is useless now as the Nokia we know is died but still I think my review will help users to decide the correct mobile suits them.
Nokia previously use symbian as their main any only os still when others moved to android good and bad decision both as symbian is not touch friendly and not modern at all good decision as symbian can be made as like as anroid because it is also highly customiseble as android I am telling this as I have used the last version of it Symbian Belle Fp2 it is too close to be a modern ui but nokia abandoned it like maemo both very very bad decision.
Now come to wp I just wonder who thought about the live tiles ui....! Its good to use 1st time but soon you will be bored by it as it does not have any relation with customization.Though it now supports transparent tiles still it is static.So if you want to get a phone for speed not for custonization you can go with WP.But for others Android or Firefox or Jolla or any other modded android like MIUI will be great.
