Comparing it with its brothers, the Z530 packs a larger screen than Z330 (4.5") but is only 0.5" smaller than Z630's screen (5.5). Also, the Z530 is powered by the same quadcore processor as Z630 (MT6375), while Z330 has a quadcore Snapdragon 210 processor clocked at 1.1 GHz. 

Meanwhile, on the memory side, Z530 has the same amount of internal memory of Z630 (16GB) and double to that of Z330. Also, as with Z630, it has 2GB of RAM which is twice to that of Z330 (1GB).

Overall, the Acer Liquid Z530 is an awesome phone considering the specs you can get with that affordable price tag, specs you can't get on other brands. Also, upon checking the CMK Cellphones site, the Z630 is already marked as bestseller. This sure is a good sign for the Taiwanese company who is now slowly dominating the budget phone category. Let's see how Z530 will perform.
