Geekyranjit shows the gaming capabilities of the Nokia Lumia 530. The quality of the sound is immediately noted. Although it plays very well, the screen’s viewing angles is somewhere Nokia has compromised on. From Subway Surfer to Asphalt 8, this quad core packs a punch. No problems either with apps installed on the microSD. It can play […]
