I just bought this phone as a backup (I have the magnificent lumia 1020 as primary) and I am really taken by surprize and not in a good way unfortunately.
The screen is simply put T_E_R_R_I_B_L_E
Worse than some cheapo chinese phones. The viewing angles are non-existent. 5 degrees away from the only "sweet spot" and almost everything is gone.
I didn't spend 100s of hours researching, but the few I did spend (and all the praising comments I had found when researching the predecessor, the Lumia 520) gave me no clue as to just how bad a latest generation LUMIA phone's screen could be. Sure I didn't expect it to be amoled, but I've had phones 8-9 years ago that had much better viewing angles, not to mention colour reproduction and brightness/clarity! It's really THAT bad that everything else (like the dual sim, here maps, OS etc.) suddenly seems to make no difference (naturally, if you can't see it or use it properly/easily how can it make any difference?).
vishma, 16 Apr 2015 how to take screenshot???Audio sound button and lock button press screen shot coming
the people who made this phone must be mad.anytime I send a full video film from another phone to my own it wont play infact the video will disappear from my Lumia 530 and the worst part is that my Xbox games are not installing and it can't play android applications

I have this Lumia 530 for two months ago working smoothly no problem at all as my second phone lumia625 I recommended to all friends thanks in advance to Nokia & gsmarena
Stupid mobile of all time. I am dumb to have bought this phone at this price. I would have given it to charity.

I love this phone. My daughter and I had them for nearly 2years but now they both won't turn off. The buttons on side won't work at all. Are they past their useby date...:(
It's a great phone if you don't mind the poor display. You get music equalizer, hd video support & live folders after Lumia Denim Update.
using this phone since november. awesome phone great battery backup, smooth and soft touch. Many used to say windows phones does not support many apps like android, but supports important apps like banking, social and business apps. previously i had android phone. now i'm not interested to going back to android. After denim update, great. looking for windows 10. Everyone must own windows phone.
I've been using Nokia Lumia 530 Dual Sim since Dec. 26. I've got the Denim update last week and it works good. One thing I don't like is the battery life. So I used Battery saver to lengthen the battery life. It doesn't have camera flash so its hard to use it during night but when day comes, I can say that the camera is pretty amazing. Overall, Nokia Lumia 530 Dual Sim is the best budget phone
