In a general sense an update means a new version of an existing product with some additional capabilities. Many updates are being done for smartphones. In the case of Microsoft this general law has been broken. Microsoft Devices group launched the Lumia 530 smartphone which uses Windows 8.1 OS for a price of $114.
Disappointing Lumia 530
Lumia 530 is priced higher than the Lumia 520 but apart from that there is nothing in it to call this phone an upgraded version. May be, the only selling point of this phone is that it comes with a pre-installed Windows 8.1 OS. Other than this, there is nothing so noteworthy about this phone. In fact, it seems like some of the features and specifications found in the previous phone has been cut off in this phone to reduce the cost.
Features and Specifications of Lumia 530
This phone has a 4-inch TFT display with a pixel resolution of 854×480 and uses Windows 8.1 OS which is officially known as Cyan. It runs on a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor which makes it run faster than ever. It contains a 512 MB RAM which is very low when compared to the modern day standards of a smartphone. The internal storage has been reduced from 8 GB, used in Lumia 520, to 4 GB in this phone. This internal storage can be expanded upto 128 GB by using a memory card. This is seen as a desperate move to cut down the cost.
Just like Lumia 520 there is no front camera in the Lumia 530 as well and there is a 5 MP rear camera with auto-focus. The battery is also the same as in the previous versions. It is a 2,000mAh battery which provides a decent charge and needs to be charged every single day. This phone is slightly heavier than the Lumia 520 which is like blow in the gut.
On the whole, Microsoft has produced the Lumia 530 by just cutting of some features in the previous version. This is not really an upgrade, it seems more like a downgrade.
Lenovo is emerging as one of the strongest companies in the world . It has introduced some amazing products in recent years. It started off from PCs and has now made it all the way to tablets.

About the launch
This smartphone was launched at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014. During this launch, Sudhin Mathur who is the director of smartphones for Lenovo India said that since the smartphone has become mainstream consumers are expecting much more quality. He also said that Lenovo will commit itself in creating more and more of these quality and innovative smartphones.
Competition for Lenovo
Lenovo is expected to provide a tough competition to the Xiaomi Mi3 phone. As of now, Lenovo S850 has all the features to outperform its competitor but whether it does this successfully or not depends on plenty of factors.
There has been many rumors that Motorola is gonna make a comeback to India with the launch of Moto G. There has been a great reception and expectation of this phone when its price was revealed. Hence a lot is expected out of Motorola in its second spell and they hope that they would become a force in the Indian market.
Partnering with Flipkart for sales
Without a shadow of doubt it is clear that Motorola has set this price to compete with other smartphones in the market. However there is only one problem that could prevent this phone from becoming an instant hit in the market. It will be available only on Flipkart.com. In India the concept of online shopping is not so popular. Even though many players in the market have tried their best only a few people have embraced this idea of buying stuff online.
Although it was expected that the sales of Moto G would get affected as a result of the online sale, this did not turn out to be the case. Flipkart posted on its website that it had run out of the Moto G stock on the night it was released. This was a surprising success for Moto G considering the fact that they chose a different and a risky stratergy.
This success acted as the catalyst for Motorola and Flipkart to partner up once again. Now they are making their intentions clear about releasing the Moto X and Moto E phones in India. About a month ago Flipkart announced that it sold over a million units of smartphones within 5 months in India alone.
Motorola has not been afraid to take risks in the market. They are surely looking to reach the dominant position that they once held in the Indian market. The Moto G has enabled them to achieve that position and one has to wait to find out what other tricks Motorola has up its sleeve.
