DesignAcer Z530 is compact, comes in black color and a little different in front and back design when compared to usual smartphones. At the back you can find ACER written in the middle of a plastic brushed panel. Beneath this panel you will find two SIM slots, a battery and a microSD compartment. While speaker, power button and volume rockers could be find at the edges of this phone.
DisplayThe phone has a 5 inch display housing a resolution of 720p and an admirable pixel density of 294PPI resulting clear display. For videos, you will not find option to run 1080p videos but 720p videos runs pretty impressively. Also, the display is clear under the sun on full display.

Hardware and PerformanceAcer Z530 is powered by Mali-T720 GPU and MediaTek MT6735 processor and benchmark tests proves that this processor is stronger than Snapdragon 410. The device offered us a good browsing experience and there was no lag to be encountered while playing games like Riptide GP2 and Dead Trigger 2.
CameraCamera to our surprise is 8 MP rear as well as 8 MP front camera, so it can be considered as one of cheapest selfie centric phone available. The picture quality of both the cameras is good, especially in outdoors with quite responsive autofocus. The video recording is not very impressive but we can do with it until picture quality is good.
