Related: Microsoft Lumia 430 Full Review
Here is what the Microsoft Lumia 430 has to offer.
Display Size: 4.0 inches
Display Type: LCD Transmissive
Display Resolution: 480 x 800 pixels
Display Resolution Density: 235 ppi
Display Protection: None
The Lumia 430 has a display profile exactly similar to that of the Lumia 435. You get a 4.0-inch display with a 480 x 800 pixels resolution and 235 ppi screen resolution density.
The Lumia 430 is an entry level device and hence you can’t really expect much from it owing to its price tag.
Frame Dimensions: 120.5 x 63.2 x 10.6 mm
Weight: 127.9 g
The design of the Lumia 430 is what sets the device apart from the Lumia 435. You get some smooth vertexes and a slightly curved rear cover, something similar to what you find on the Lumia 530.
The design is unlike that of the Lumia 435 which is largely composed of a blocky candy bar design with sharp vertexes.
The Lumia 430 is in comparison with the Lumia 435, slightly thinner and lighter.
Operating System: Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim
CPU: Snapdragon™ 200 Dual core 1.2 GHz
RAM: 1 GB
Internal Memory: 8 GB
Micro SD: Yes, up to 128 GB
The Lumia 435 is powered by a Dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 and is one of the few Microsoft Lumia devices powered by a Dual Core CPU.
It is, however, awesome that the Lumia 435 has some 1GB RAM. This is all part of Microsoft’s initiative to eliminate low memory devices (less than 1GB RAM) in its ecosystem.
Other than that, you get some 8GB as external storage and a memory card slot that can support a 128GB memory card.
Rear Camera: 2 MP
Secondary Camera: VGA
LED Flash: Yes
You get a 2.0 MP rear camera and a 0.3 MP selfie camera with the Lumia 430. The camera profile of the Lumia 430 is what most would consider a deal breaker.
The Lumia 430 is clearly designed for the younger smartphone generation and a smartphone that captures grainy selfies is likely to be ignored.
Battery and Extras
Battery Capacity: Li-Ion 1500 mAh
The Lumia 430 comes with a Li-Ion 1500 mAh battery pack. Considering its display size and CPU power, a 1500 mAh battery capacity is adequate.
We all like to be given alternatives when making our purchasing decisions. Microsoft knows this and just like Samsung, has begun offering the same products with different brand names.
A quick comparison between the Lumia 435 and Lumia 430 yields some rather insignificant differences. The Lumia 430 is, therefore, a smartphone that targets buyers who reminiscence over the iconic Nokia Lumia design concept.
Be awesome and rate the Microsoft Lumia 430.
