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...

Nice and simple design ; Good performance for a low-end device ; Reasonable camera

No automatic display brightness ; Only 512MB of RAM ; No forward-facing camera

Microsoft's first Windows Phones

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: 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

Playful, comfortable design ; 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


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 630/635 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...

4.5" 16M-color ClearBlack IPS LCD display of FWVGA resolution, Gorilla Glass 3 ; Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 processor, Adreno 305 GPU and 512MB of RAM ; Windows Phone 8.1 OS with Nokia Cyan ; Optional dual-SIM...

No front-facing camera ; No 1080p video recording ; No LED flash ; No proximity sensor ; 512MB RAM may eventually turn out insufficient for future apps ; No headset or USB cable included in the retail package

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 review: Full In-Depth Hands-on


Available for Rs.11,999, the Nokia Lumia 630 is the first Lumia phone to use Windows 8.1 OS. Check it out in our Nokia Lumia 630 review.

Nokia Lumia 630 review


The Nokia Lumia 630 is one of the last devices that will launch with the Nokia Lumia name now that Microsoft is at the helm. It's also the Windows Phone attack on the affordable market, with a price tag of just £100 certain to capture attention.

Affordable, nicely designed and feels good quality, offers the latest Windows Phone 8.1 software

A number of hardware compromises, display resolution isn't competitive, some software bugs, not 4G

Nokia Lumia 630 review


The best budget Nokia yet

New, improved Windows Phone 8.1 ; Value for money ; In-built motion sensor

Poor camera quality ; No front cam or flash ; No NFC or 4G

I'd like to take my hat off to Microsoft and Nokia who have built on the success of the Nokia Lumia 520 brilliantly to design and build yet another respectable budget phone in the Nokia Lumia 630.

Nokia's latest is affordable, attractive and much more powerful than its price suggests, but is it worth you cash? Read our Nokia Lumia 630 review

Expandable memory ; Snazzy styling ; Spectacular software

Average screen ; Unexceptional camera sensor ; Apps still behind rivals

Nokia has skill at making affordable and attractive handsets - the Nokia Lumia 530 was a popular choice and is one of the most purchased Windows Phone handsets ever.
