Today we are going to review Nokia Lumia 530 just to evaluate some goods and bad of this new Lumia device. As with any Nokia phone, you get a reasonable base level of design and build here.
Design moderation / Focus practical
Started Lumia 530, it feels exceptionally small, equipped with a 4-inch screen, yet the head with the iPhone 4s at the same level of control, with one hand to grasp fully without any problems, but it also brings back rounded corners very comfortable grip sense, it is no exaggeration to say that, Lumia 530 is probably the best single-handed operability phone one.
Here they have to mention, Lumia 530 is based on rounded design, although more care the touch, but not as good as the Lumia 520.
By convention, Lumia 530 provides a gray, white, green, orange four color versions, are processed through the frosted polycarbonate, anti-wrestling, stain index is high, close to the low-end user demands – and practical.
Details, buttons and various interfaces handled well, at least not as rough with the price of the product, with the exception of the microphone design was too casual, directly on the screen panel to play up a notch, do not look at it carefully, the old thought it was Screen knock bad.
With the majority of Nokia’s low-end products, the shell can be removed, support the replacement of the battery (1430mAh). Lumia 530 supports dual card dual standby, compatible with WCDMA and GSM networks.
Screen slightly upgraded from 800×480 to 854×480 pixels improve sense of little 4-inch screen pixel density of doing 233ppi, far below the mainstream level.
At first glance, the color performance of the screen is good, but a comparison with the high-end models, you will find a lot of problems, such as low saturation, color cast, resolution is poor, color gamut and narrow, reflecting the naked eye, the performance of the screen pan White, lighter in color, with color inconsistencies, feel gorgeous effect.
Previously Lumia 520 on account of the lack of front camera and flash and criticized by users, Lumia 530 also made the same mistake, only the configuration of a 5 million pixel camera, which means it will completely lose self-timer and night shooting two functions.
The camera interface is simple, functional, only the foundation of ISO, white balance, exposure value of other options. In addition, Lumia 530 does not support manual focus, the interface does not show the focus, and the system auto focus speed and accuracy are poor, especially in the vicinity when shooting still life, basically not on coke.
Imaging slightly lower level, under normal light picture noise more obvious, the color is very dull and out with great colors, looks very pale, very easy virtual focus.
When shooting cloudy, some water vapor in the air will affect the image quality to some extent, but even with the weather, or the camera can be seen that a lower tolerance to light, and the details of the problem of poor resolution of the distance property The fonts and windows are somewhat vague, the noise problem is even more pronounced.
