GIVEAWAY! Lumia 530 Up For Grabs

Lumia 530

Hot on the heels of us giving away a Coloud Bang portable speaker, we make the deal even sweeter. We are giving away a Lumia 530. First, I will start with a refresher on what there is to know about the Lumia 530.

Lumia 530 was announced by Microsoft at around mid this year and only hit the Kenya market a few weeks ago. This is currently the most affordable Windows Phone device and is meant to give a user an experience similar to one from other Lumia devices at the top. The device has a 4 inch LCD display and comes running Windows 8.1 with Lumia Cyan update, if you are not on the Cyan update, head to settings > Update phone to get it on..

Internal storage is 4GB, expandable via microSD to 128GB, and Microsoft ensured that you can now install apps and save data to microSD, so you are only limited by the microSD you put in there. The device is dual-SIM, dual standby. Inside it, there is a 1.2 GHz Quad Core Snapdragon 200  processor and 512 MB RAM. The covers are exchangeable to give a user options of 5 colours: White, Green, Black. Orange and Dark Grey.
