The Sony Ericsson K530i is an improved K610 with better looks and tweaked firmware. Nothing new here… but does its price justify the new improvements?

Design and Looks
The looks of the K530i will appease users with conservative tastes; it is very elegant in a simple and classy way. It is a moderate sized bar that is made of strong plastics. A unique point in the design is the side lining of the front panel on the front side which begins to recede right above the keypad making the screen unit project from the casing. This looks very cool indeed.

The keypad is one of the best we've ever seen, the keys are part of a single unbroken layout that are terraced. The middle-column keys are notched at the sides which is an intelligent choice making texting easier. Overall, the keypad offers unbelievable touch orientation and yet is gentle on the fingers, regardless of the size of the user's hands.

The display is as big a letdown as it is large; the problem lies in the low resolution of 176 x 220, this coupled with the large 2 inch display will make each pixel stand out from a mile! A QVGA display would have better complimented the large screen size.

Coming to the back of the phone, one is confronted with mixed-reactions. While the back is just as stylish as the front (given the dimple-patterned cross wire strip that runs across the back), the 2MP camera without autofocus or flash is a big disappointment. The camera is also unprotected so care must be taken to make sure it does not get scratched.

On the bright side, the phone is preloaded with some nice applications. There is the Accuweather app that gives users weather forecasts of up to three places. The application is essentially free but your mobile operator will charge you for the data transferred. Then there is the audible app that lets users download audio books from a collection of more than 35,000 titles. Of course, this isn't free but definitely a cheaper alternative to buying an audio book off the shelf.

Among the long list of complaints we have the lack of EDGE connectivity and LED notification of missed events in addition to the general lack of innovation (volume wise) over the K610i.

The phone is saved by its looks; otherwise it wouldn't have achieved even the moderate sales it has so far garnered.
