    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-scope any day, why can't Microsoft lose money on a product so I can spend less money!!!!



    Did I get that about right?

    RAM could have been 1 Gigs or they could have included front cam if 1 Gig RAM was not possible.

    The thing is that when people are ready to upgrade, there isn't anything to upgrade too, only androids and iPhones because Nokia/Microsoft keep releasing these type of phones. (T-Mobile)

    It's sad that people expect this phone to be a budget phone with high end specs and a very low price.

    Its not about money, mate. Its something about VFM (Value for Money). It will cost somewhere around 100-150 dollars, but people do value their hard-earned money and will look for good and VFM features/specs where they are looking to spend it.

    Why do they have to degrade the 5 series. They could have introduced a new model number instead

    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.

    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 :)

    I do think Microsoft should have phased out 512mb phones. It wouldn't take a massive jump in price, if any at all, to include 1gb.

    You know what people, Thats one bad Upgrade from a 520 (Lol, If you even dare call that an upgrade!) Come on, the Processor is downgraded to a lower architecture. Yet no flash to please us for an upgrade. No Secondary camera, The device looks like a CANDY. Way thicker than its predecessor and above all A 512MB RAM!!! Oh these Microsoft guys are totally outta their minds to hope that people would upgrade or buy a 530 taking the fact that most devs are prioritizing in developing apps for atleast 1GB of RAM.
