The phone won’t turn on without the SIM inserted

- Designers are called upon to improve looks, developers are tweaking up the firmwarе, but somehow the user interface and functions tend to be ignored. It’s not the fault of K530 only. It’s safe to say, most of the new releases suffer the same weakness. It’s been quite some time since we last saw a real innovation, except in strictly high-end handsets. The same, of course, holds true about Nokia. Recurring criticisms seem to meet with indifference. Sony Ericsson K530 is very similar to the K610 we tested a little over a year ago. Save for the better exterior, the few novelties are the FM radio, A2DP-enabled Bluetooth and Track ID.
