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.

  7. The Lumia 530’s specs are just marvellous . Its features which i HAVE always liked are

    1.The fixed focus photography on the flashless 5-megapixel camera keeps you from getting close-up,

    2. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor and
    backed by 512MB of RAM, you’ll find the Nokia Lumia 530 delivers a full
    Windows Phone 8.1 experience. What that means is, in every day use,
    you’ll find it offers a quick and responsive operating system that loads
    and runs all the latest apps with ease

    3. The up-to-date Windows Phone 8.1 operating system gives you the best of
    CORTANA’S digital assistant. Coratana is my personal best it even tells you jokes at a request i loveeeeeeee it.

    4.The Nokia Lumia 530 has a great design Being interchangeable you can switch and change the colour to suit your needs.

    5. Nokia Lumia 530 comes with microSD card storage, allowing us to add
    cards up to 128GB in size like comon how many devices do we get at such a pocket friendly prize that gives us the ability to expand the memory to a whooping 128GB !!!! Thats a win .

    Anyway the list is endless and having personally reviewed this device i know its one smartphone that every Techie would love having ,

    3.the best free music streaming app on any mobile platform: MixRadio.This will surely enable you not miss latest music on the go (i love music so much)

    4.Windows 8.1 The platform packs in tons of new features that older versions of Windows Phone lacked, including the Action Center, a hub where you can see all of your notifications and alerts in a single spot — just swipe down from the top of the display to access it. Another noteworthy feature is the inclusion of actionable notifications — when a new message or email arrives, a notification will pop up, with options to respond or ignore, without the need to launch and navigate through your messaging app.

    5.Cortana. One of the biggest additions to Windows Phone 8.1 is Cortana, a digital-assistant app that pushes alerts to you and responds to voice commands.
