Buy online from € 87.90     The Nokia Lumia 530 Dual SIM is now a cheaper classic. What the little brother of the Nokia Lumia 630 Dual (test) provides, we have summarized here.

Windows Phone 8.1

The sales start new Windows Phone version 8.1 put in 530 Dual. She was even a prerequisite that we have taken the smartphone under the microscope. Because only since the introduction of "WP" 8.1 mobile operating system supports 2 SIM cards in the same phone.
Nokia Lumia 530 Dual navigation

Free maps for online and offline navigation is included with the Nokia Lumia 530 Dual according to the supplier.

In addition, the system adapts total something to expect from iOS and Android to use - for example, there is now a status bar that you can pull down from the top of the screen. You can also place a photo behind the tile bar on the home screen. But this jerky even 630 Dual, as the 530 Dual solves the, a test must be clarified.


With 4.0 "screen size , the 530 Dual actually one of the currently most compact smartphone displays. For these "small" image area it offers 854 x 480 pixels is a good resolution. And even better than the Lumia 630, which must fill a larger screen (4.5 ") with the same amount of pixels. Luminosity, color effect and viewing angle of the LCD display are ok, but not impressive. Something bad is the wide frame around the display, otherwise the 530 dual could be smooth to a genial little companion. So while it is overall still compact, but some models with a larger 4.3 "screen come thanks to a narrower margin on similar dimensions. Speaking Dimensions: Unfortunately, the smaller Lumia models fall always very "thick" from the 530 there are 1.17 cm.


Particularly frugal you have to be no more, when it comes to Windows Phone. The apps now go into the hundreds of thousands, that is taken care of everything important.
Lumia 530 Dual Thickness

Not just super slim: The 530 Dual is 1.17 cm thick - allowing the savings rate (99 € MSRP), but also just the right thickness change Cover noticeable.

Who attaches great importance to specific apps and therefore may not want to switch to WP can simply look in the Windows Phone App Store before he smiles a WP smartphone. "Everyday Apps" such as Facebook, Shazam, Navigation (free maps) and Office are available in any case. Incidentally, App2SD is now possible.


How fail processor and memory nominal, unfortunately does not say much about the actual performance. Therefore here only for completeness: The 530 features a quad-core processor , which is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 acts. That is enough in practice for liquid Operating menus and everyday apps, as long as it is not a detailed high-speed games or killed viewing pictures and videos with several MB.When testing the small screen limits the gaming fun anyway something, but just for nice In between games on the bus, train or on the couch, the compact form of advantages over models of 4.5 "- or 5.0" class.

Nokia Lumia 530 Dualmemory

Beautiful: The Nokia Lumia 530 Dual officially supports microSD cards with up to 128 GBstorage capacity. This is the currently highest value for the extra memory in dual SIM mobile test so far, however, reach the other 2-SIM phones.

Dual sim card controller

As latecomers Windows Phone has good abgeguckt here with the other and some even made better than Android. However, you must remember that Nokia already with the simpler Symbian Dual-SIM phones keys about the Nokia 208 Dual as much experience. It is especially pleasant that each of the two SIM cards each have their own tile for calls and SMS has on the Home screen to call about them, or send an SMS. This means a total of 4 tiles (Phone SIM1 - SMS SIM1 - SIM2 phone - SMS SIM2). One or two users noticed here that the SIM numbers are relatively difficult to detect on the screen icons, we found it on the other hand without problems. Sign in doubt yourself before buying the business or use the right of withdrawal for online orders. The SIM card management in the Lumia 530 Dual calls itself again as the larger sister model "Smart Dual SIM". One for each of the two cards (ie, for each of the phones) to set up the call waiting and forwarding, use the respective effective SIM card.

Free Extras: cloud, Music and Maps

  • Cloud : now quite popular there, aufzuhübschen the internal memory of mobile phones via cloud storage is. Nokia calls the whole thing "OneDrive". As in any online store can be there to place any files, with a total 15 GB available. Thus, for content sharing good sometimes between handsets without having to rely on Bluetooth or the changing of the microSD card, or for safety's sake sometimes outsourcing as a copy. If the Lumia 630 Dual is lost, the data are then away at least not directly.
    Lumia 530 Dual color

    Various bright colors and black are available for the removable back cover

  • Music : Another Free Extra Nokia announces a music streaming, in which his ollen songs free and ad-free. "Mixradio" is what the manufacturers, the. Volume of data you have, of course, to calculate depending on your phone contract, unless you want to stream mobile.
  • Maps : Navigates also provides the Nokia Lumia 530 Dual SIM is a nice gadget with because (presumably again via the Nokia Maps service "Here"), the map data should also be available for free. Above all you can about the Maps app also offline navigate. Therefore one must enter his destination beforehand and then download the corresponding size desired map section.While this goes on Google Maps also, is rather hidden and therefore far from being made as comfortable.


Who has ever seen in recent years, a Nokia mobile phone, will not be surprised that in the Lumia 530 Dual SIM test will come again glaring hues in the editorial, but also sober Black will be available. The back covers can change and thus adjust the color completely to the front basically consists of the display and its black frame. Unfortunately, the distances between the cover and display frame are located in the test Lumia models previously shown to be relatively large, so that intervening dust and small crumbs could accumulate. Especially the big brother of the 530 Dual which was already significantly improved, though not yet at the top level.
