The camera quality is so bad it doesn't even zoom or focus, crashes everyday , cannot multi task, lack of apps . There are so many things wrong with this phone . The software is appalling the phone randomly shuts down whilst in use I had this checked out but there was nothing wrong with it that's just how the phone performs. It is just a cheap back up phone really. Literally no apps are compatible with the sd card so there is no point in one and the phone comes with 4gb and the system application takes up half this space then there is hardly any space for anything else the only thing good about it is its toughness which is thanks to Nokia the rest of the Windows software is notbgood in my opinion thank god I'm switching to another phone soon this phone has gave me hell for the past 4 months. I recommend keeping to androids or even an apple phone Windows phones are not good

Mine has clogged most of built in memory while many applications refuse to utilize the available sd-card memory. I'm moving on to a different phone soon. Got tired of Microsoft using me as lab rat for their failing project.
Captain_Price, 17 Sep 2015Yes!!!!!! Give me other reasons why i would not buy the nokia lumia 530???????It doesn't have enough memory to run and update its factory installed apps. Do you need more reasons? It doesn't work properly with many webpages, wikipedia for instance. I sometimes wonder if Microsoft has any idea what kind of counterproductive thing for their image this phone actually is. If they wanted to succeed they'd recall all units and replace them with something useful or just a wad cash for disappointed users to buy a different phone.

SD-card doesn't help as Lumia Camera for example can not be used with SD-card memory.
That being said I wonder if all the 'sudden' positive comments after each realistic description of what this thing is actually about are genuine users comments.
I like it, it's fast and has wifi, it's possible to put it on 2g net-connection wich makes cheaper browsing
It's possible to send mp3s by bluetooth but not videos unless the videos have been sent by bluetooth to the phone
This is really a good phone in the price of 7,000... U can trust this phone.... Doesn't even hangs... I'm impressed with it...
The automatic downloads block up the phone memory. Demand your money back. They sold you something that does not do what its supposed to.
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2015Mine is always hot . Please what is the cause. i also don't know the sme problem wd me.
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2015Want to puchase this phone . Please advise if it is a good one.Don't buy it. Crap phone.
macker, 07 Sep 2015Is there something I can set so it dosnt use so quike data Get rid of it. I am looking for a new one already - this is a phone you wouldn't want even if they paid you to have it. It is designed to force you to use exclusively outdated Microsoft apps. Everything else will be a problem, SD card will be damaged and useless, so don't waste your Tim and money. Yeah and it edits your text without asking. I wrote time, it edited it to Tim got tired tapping this unresponsive screen to correct it. Do you need more reasons to stay away?

Answer was reset to factory settings as in their opinion phone has no problems what so ever. Apparently we are all imbecils and we just imagine that phone has heaps of problems even with basic and factory installed applications.
I'm trying to get games like doubleu casino, soda crush,PET rescue and others but I'm getting trouble to do so.why?please help me.
Hi, I purchased a Nokia Lumia 530. It was clearly a mistake. When I click on apps sometimes it boots me right out and shows me the home screen. I purchased a sim card becuase the Nokia Lumia 530 can only hold like 1 mb. I half way used the card and it says so storage space. i go on storage sense and i have lots of storage left. I tried deleting pictures and videos and apps but it says "sorry can'y delete at this time". I try to attach pictures to emails so I click the attach button, choose the photo and click done. Then I look in the "compose" email section and the picture is not there.You can't even email videos on the Nokia Lumia 530. And sometimes it says can not send email.****** REFRESHING DOES NOT WORK FOR THE PROBLEMS LISTED******. On instagram there is no dm and video and most apps are not in the windows apps store or it in dumb beta Videos in you Instagram feed do NOT play. There is no front camera on the Nokia Lumia 530 nor is there a timer so you can take a selfie. I had to download FOUR camera apps when on any other phone you can use one app for all of that. People say the NOKIA'S are known fpr their camera, but the camera isn't that good. The phone does not come with basic apps that are pretty much on the average phone. Also on FLIPAGRAM it says "can not make flip because of bad connectivity" when i have 5 bars and 4g. There is audio - visual delay on Netflix and much more is wrong with this phone. Buy if you like wasting your money. iI'd give it 0 stars of I could. Nothing is good with this phone. I know iPhones are way more expensive, but it is worth it.
