Lumia 530 Review in short

The phone has only primary camera that is 5 Megapixel and seems too little for young generation. The company has not equipped secondary camera in the phone so the consumers are complaining that Microsoft should have added atleast1 MP secondary camera. The 512 MB of RAM is also too little for the youths while there are many Android phones are available with 1 GB RAM in this same price range. But, if you want to buy only branded phone under 8000, then it would be also better than Samsung and Sony phones.
