Nokia Lumia 630 review: An affordable phone you can live without

 

The Nokia we used to know is no longer. In late April, the handset maker was finally folded into Microsoft's Devices and Services business after more tha

Playful design, comfortable to hold ; Good battery life ; LTE on a shoestring

No front-facing camera ; Mediocre display

The Lumia 635 is a much-needed addition to Nokia's affordable handset range. It has a serviceable camera, fun design and good battery life, but most importantly, it's one of the best-value LTE devices out there.

Nokia Lumia 630/635 review: Bottom up

 

One of the first phones to launch straight to Windows Phone 8.1, the Lumia 630 is also the first to bring dual-SIM support to the platform. That said, we should note right at the start that we're reviewing the regular, single-SIM version. The...

Nokia Lumia 930 and 630 review

 

Windows Phone isn't setting the world alight just yet, but it continues to show signs of promise in the cheaper end of the smartphone market. Microsoft knows this. It's why the first Windows Phone 8.1 device is a low-end Lumia 630. With Windows Phone...

Nokia Lumia 630 review

 

The Motorola Moto G is undoubtedly the darling of the budget smartphone world, thanks to its mid-range specs and bottom-end price. It's not the only option to go for though -- particularly if you're not keen on Android's sometimes complicated way of...

The Nokia Lumia 630 has fun, colourful, interchangeable cases, its Windows Phone 8.1 software is easy to use and Nokia's bundled apps come in handy.

The Windows Phone app store still rarely receives new apps at the same time as Android or iOS, the screen is lower resolution than the similarly-priced Moto G, the camera doesn't particularly impress and it doesn't have 4G.

The Nokia Lumia 630 is a cheap, vibrant alternative to Android and its Windows Phone 8.1 software is easy to use. The app store is still a problem though -- if you like getting new releases when your Android and iOS-toting friends do, a budget Android...

Nokia Lumia 630 Review

 

With the introduction of the Lumia 630 and 635 models, we have our first look at the next generation of low cost Windows Phone devices, and the Lumia 630 is a phone with many firsts for this segment. It's the first phone launched with Windows Phone 8.1...

Designing an affordable phone is always going to have compromises. In this case, Nokia has hit on some reasonable compromises but gone too far in others. The lack of a proximity sensor was something that I didn’t miss at all, and the phone has no issue...

Nokia Lumia 630 Review; help us, Cortana, you’re our only hope

 

Windows Phone is primed for a serious update, but can it make headway into the mid-range market? With Android holding sway in the “lesser-than” category, Microsoft aims to move into their territory via the Nokia Lumia 630. A decidedly mid-tier phone,...

The price will move this device, no doubt. Microsoft has effectively re-branded a device from two years ago (the Snapdragon 400 was slightly behind when it debuted on the Nexus 4) and sold it anew. The hardware breaks no new ground, and our overall...

Nokia Lumia 630 Review

 

The Nokia Lumia 630 is an affordable and colorful Windows Phone 8.1 handset, one of the first WP devices with dual-SIM option…

Windows Phone 8.1 with Nokia’s Cyan improvements showcases the best of Microsoft’s platform ; First Windows Phone with dual-SIM support ; Buttery smooth performance ; Offline navigation remains a big plus

Sub-par camera with no flash, no front-facing cam ; Screen is less sharp than rivals ; Cheap-feeling plastic ; Only 512MB of RAM, a limitation for gaming ; Does not support 1080p video recording ; Poor in-box contents (no headphones, no USB cable)

The Nokia Lumia 630 is a handset for the masses. Its full retail (off-contract) price stands at €160 ($200), on par with some very popular offerings like the Motorola Moto G.

Nokia Lumia 630 Dual SIM Review – Affordability at Its Best

 

Aside from the fact that the Lumia 630 Dual SIM is one of the not so many handsets launched by Microsoft this year, it's also one of the few coming with Windows Phone 8.1 operating system out of the box. While not the cheapest of the new Lumia series...

I do not understand why Microsoft included such a good main camera, but skipped the LED flash. In addition, while the phone does come with 3G support, Lumia 630 Dual SIM lacks secondary camera for video calls. The lack of proximity and ambient light...

Nokia Lumia 630 review: An affordable Windows Phone, but not a perfect one

 

The Lumia 630 is Microsoft's new entry-level Windows Phone 8.1 device, and one of the cheapest handsets available. But is this low-cost smartphone any good, or should you take your money elsewhere?
