Microsoft Announces the Ultra Low Cost Lumia 430

In the low-end segment of the Smartphone market, one can argue that only Motorola and Microsoft offer phones with a decent experience. It is no surprise then that the latter is further lowering the bar now with the announcement of the $70 Lumia 430, which offers a fine feature set for its price.

The display at the front is 4” with 480 x 800 resolution and 235 ppi. The design is usual Lumia. The OS running on it is Windows Phone 8.1, which is said to be upgradeable to Windows 10, quite a treat for this price. There is also dual-SIM connectivity.

Underneath, you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with a respectable 1 GB RAM and 8 GB storage, which is said to be expandable by an impressive 128 GB. At the back lies a lowly 2 mp camera which is clearly the low-point of the package but trade-offs are to be expected.

Last is the 1,500 mAh battery. Price is set at $70 which is quite competitive and under the budget for a large number of people. This is clearly a new high-point in the low-end range of Lumia phones.

  • Battery: 1,500 mAh, it will die in 1.5 hours continues use, Even a simple user can’t spend full day without charging it

    • You noob, lumia’s 1500mAH battery is much better than 2200mAH android. It will surely last a whole day…

  • Ram good, Rom good,
    Screen size moderate.
    Camera: Not Good.
    Processor is a main thing, NOT GOOD.
    Battery capacity is important, NOT GOOD.
    With respect to price it’s an okay cellphone.

  • Standard of microsoft mobile phones is very low. They must hard work to keep the standard of their phones near famous companies like, iphone, smasung, LG, Sony, Lenovo and Motorolla.

  • Have 70$ price is officially announced by Microsoft, if yes. Why? price is Rs. 14000.00 in pak.
