    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. ... moto G 4G but that's because moto are selling the phones at a loss. I repeat... at a LOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
    So, is there some rational reason, why I should care some companys profit? Isnt it so, if company sell something at loss, they kind of pay me for that I take their product? They give me something that is more valuable than money I pay. So is there any reason, why I shouldt use this advantage?

    Its kind of weird way to think, if you are not shareholder of MS. Or do you think that those who get most of that profit, are poor and hungry and need to be helped?

    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.
    Guess you are on the DP.. I have been using my 520 heavily loaded and no probs i have ever faced.. My free memory would never cross 400 MB mark and at times it dipped to a single digit..

    I can play Crysis 3 on my iPhone 3GS.
    Oh that's nothing! I can play Crysis 3 on my stone tablet at 1 chisel a second with a ridiculously clear Real Life display!!!! It is amazing, accurate colors, perfect viewing angles and looks great in all sunlight conditions, perfect for Crysis on the go! The tablet has infinite battery life as well plus the tablet stays cool to the touch due to not overheating during usage and prolonged Crysis gameplay. Only downside is that the tablet is heavy...

    My SWAG? The 530 will likely out sell many "high-end" phones by an order of magnitude. Maybe several.

    The funniest part about this is that "Oh this phone is for poor people who are too dumb to know the difference" keeps going unchallenged. I'm sure pretty much anybody can notice that some of the specs have actually gone backwards from the phone that was its predecessor, and not many are any better. When does that ever happen? Just buy a 520 for even less money since it's now old and heavily discounted.

    It won't be a flop. If you don't want a phone with 512 MB of ram, don't buy it. My mother in law isn't a gamer or a Facebook user either. She might look up some stuff on the net, redo her prescriptions at Wal-Greens and basic stuff like that and 512 is MORE than adequate for her and thousand of others. You size junkies need to get off this idea that everyone needs a Lexus. They don't.

    You my dear sir have won the internet for today xD
    After reading the title,I was like "Goddamit,not again..." And after reading your post I was ROFL-ing
    Seriously though,you deserve a medal xD

    P.S:I still think 530 will be a flop,no,wait,don't get me wrong.Not because of the ram but because of the 4GB internal,not too appealing,probably means people'll have to get a 16GB SD card.And 4GB internal doesn't sound too appealing in developing countries,trust me.

    The phone is not for everybody. I'm sure all of you are waiting for the 730 which should have 1 gb ram, snapdragon 400, hd screen, flash , front facing cam eccetra. (Basically a moto g on wp) but you guys just need to be patient.

    I don't think this thread very funny, but it could become so if the 530 will really be a flop.

    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?
    Ok lets go over this just once more. L530 has Adreno 302 while L520 has Adreno 305. L530 has only 4gb memory while L520 has 8gb memory. L530 has a fixed focus camera while L520 has autofocus. L530 can only record videos upto wvga(854*480) while L520 can record upto 720p. L530 has normal LCD display while L520 has IPS LCD L530 is thicker than L520 And to add salt to the wound/insult to injury L530 will be more expensive than L520. Now if this phone was called L430 or L420 and priced lower than L520 then it would have been fine but as it stands now L530 is a really poor value proposition as L520/525 are much better not to mention Moto E is also much better. When L520 came out last year it took the world by storm and so did Moto E this year but L530 forget improving on L520 it instead downgrades the specs and slaps a higher price. This does not bode well for future of MS phone division and windows phone ecosystem.

    So to sum it up, Microsoft needs to stop making such kind of weird-*** decisions.

    Lol,$50 for that spec.
    I think maybe msft should fill up asha line since they fired people on them.
    So this phone have a duty to fill that, but i dont know this phone even released yet.
    When this phone priced $50 with no contract, that will be different.
