    the 530 wont flop because most people going to buy a $50 phone wont really care about this all they will see is oh a smartphone for so cheap and it comes in different colours
    Exactly. This fun is marketed to a certainly kind of people.

    Lol, So many things wrong here..
    First off, A 200$ Laptop that plays "Crysis 3" at 60FPS? lmao. Lemme get this straight, A near to perfect rig with a AMD Radeon R9 290X struggles to punch out an average of 48 fps!(btw, thats a Mid-High range Desktop GPU!) so there ain't no way your gonna get a 200$ lappy to play crysis 3 at a staggering 60 fps, lol and never in 4K Rendering. Cheers :)
    if you were as smart as your knowledge about GPUs you would have understood the irony :P

    This.
    Well it's sad people even consider "A flash option " an high end spec. Its even funnier to expect people consider a "Proximity sensor" an high end spec. lol 1GB Of ram ain't high end. It's the amount of RAM most phones ship out nowadays. Oh and for gods sake they've skipped the proximity sensor and downgraded the processor architecture. That should compensate for giving the 530 1 GB of RAM.

    All of this seems dumb to us, the power users but think that the 530 and 630/635 are aimed towards people on a budget and first time smartphone users.
    Or people like me who are experienced smartphone users with lots of disposable income, but are too cheap to spend more on a phone than the cost of their tablet or laptop. I refuse to spend more on a cellphone than the cost of one of those devices. It's a matter of principle. TO each his own, I guess. I'm loving my Nokia Lumia 635 :)

    Are you being serious? If you want to UPgrade. Go higher. Oh god.
    Are you serious? Like I said there is nothing to upgrade too! The strategy here is people buy the low entry windows phone and then upgrade to a high end windows phone, but there isn't any on T-Mobile only high end androids and iPhones therefore they end up ditching windows phone, listen next time instead of trying to argue with people

    I don't know what Microsoft is thinking, but they should include 2GB of RAM, an octacore processor, 1080p and a 50mp camera and price it for AT LEAST $50 otherwise this thing will fail on the market. I mean, I can walk into Walmart and buy a $200 Dell laptop that can play Crysis 3 at 4K 60fps 360 no-scrope any day, why can't Microsoft lose money on a product so I can spend less money!!!!

    Did I get that about right?
    1080p? What is this, 2009? I can't use a phone with such poverty resolutions.

    It is a low end phone. Low end phones have rubbish specs and a low price so people can buy it and microsoft can make a profit. The Moto G and Moto E are Low end phones with high specs but they are sold at a lost. Microsoft are making money with each sale. And everyone knows Windows Phone runs well with 512mb ram. If you are so angry about the 530 being such a low specced phone then just get a high end phone that has at least 1gb ram. 820 and 1520 have an sd card as well so you don't have to complain about the lack of expandable storage. You could even wait for a 730 or something like that but I know that in the UK it would probably cost more than the moto G 4G but that's because moto are selling the phones at a loss. I repeat... at a LOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

    yeah yeah , L520 was a MASSIVE flop too
    it is a cheap , affordable device that aims to replace the Asha line

    don't ask for premium features in cheap devices

    Emmm... quick answer 'yes'... BUT!, 8.1 is making my 920 feel considerably slower than WP8, IDK how this can still apply for low-end devices running 8.1 after installing like 30 or 40 apps and full memory.

    That fact that those high end phones like the 1520 aren't available on every carrier really makes it's hard for people to get their hands on them, plus all we do is wait and when we finally get a new device its a low end phone, you have to understand when people wait for good new phones and all they get is this, it really makes them tired of waiting, Nokia & Microsoft don't seem to realize the competition there up against

    How many people know this fact?. To survive MS should make low end phones with 1gb ram.

    Try hard resetting. That always makes the phone faster after. Don't worry your start screen and apps will automatically be restored. Just not some of your game data.

    No they don't! The 520 sold fine with 512mb ram. Why are people so parandoid about how much ram low end windows phones have since the moto E and G?
