Nokia Lumia 630
The Nokia Lumia 630 is another affordable Windows Phone that’s nice to look at. It also has a good camera and exceptional battery life, but is missing a few basic features like a front-facing camera. With several good alternatives in the same price range, you can take it or leave it.
- Playful design, comfortable to hold
- Good battery life
- LTE on a shoestring

A dual-core processor would have probably done the job and could have freed up enough money to include 1GB RAM and that darned ambient light sensor.Engadget60Nokia Lumia 630 review: An affordable phone you caWhere other affordable Lumias have struck the right balance between utility and price, the 630 falls short. It's nice to look at and takes good pictures, but it's otherwise a flawed device. With various better options available for the same price, the Lumia 630 is one to avoid.CNET70A vibrant, cheap alternative to AndroidThe 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 phone like the Moto G is still the way to go.EngadgetNot RatedNokia Lumia 630 and 635 bring Windows Phone 8.1 toAnother interesting feature on the 630 and 635 is SensorCore, which involves low-power health monitoring. Essentially, SensorCore can keep an eye on how many steps you've taken, miles you've walked and calories burned, and it logs the information into the Bing Health and Fitness app.Pocket-Lint70Nokia Lumia 630 reviewWith Motorola dominating this market the Nokia Lumia 630 doesn't feel quite like the budget shining star it's designed to be.Pocket-LintNot RatedNokia Lumia 630/635 pictures and hands-onIn the hand the Nokia Lumia 630/635 feels solid enough. It can't hold a candle to the Lumia 930, but it reminds us very much of the Lumia 520, only larger - and that's a good thing.SlashGearNot RatedNokia Lumia 630 dual-SIM hands-on [Update: 635 tooIn the hand, the Lumia 630 feels like a cross between recent mid-range Nokia Windows Phones and the Nokia X family of Android-based handsets. The squared-off styling and interchangeable casing is reminiscent of Nokia X.PC Pro70Nokia Lumia 630 reviewThe Nokia Lumia 630 is a pretty good smartphone. Performance is acceptable, battery life is good, and even the camera is tolerable. Although the Windows Phone Store still can't match its Android and iOS counterparts for the quality or number of apps available, we like the latest ... update.GSM Arena80Nokia Lumia 630 review: Bottom upThe Lumia 630 has the same winning combo as the Lumia 520 that sold in millions: a simple, yet durable design, a good balance of features at a bargain price. We wouldn't be surprised to see it repeat the feat of the former and become the Lumia line's next rising star.Forbes80Nokia Lumia 630 Review: The First Windows Phone 8.While it won’t be long before Microsoft removes the Nokia name from its newly acquired handset division, the Lumia 630 shows what a talented unit it has acquired. Nokia has made a handset which outperforms any in its price bracket.The Inquirer80Nokia Lumia 630 reviewThe Nokia Lumia 630 isn't perfect, lacking key features like a front camera and running just 512MB of RAM, but, considering its budget price, the perks more than make up for these shortcomings.TrustedReviewsNot RatedNokia Lumia 630The Lumia 630 seems like another neat little Windows Phone mobile that should sell by the truckload if sold at the right price.PocketNow60Nokia Lumia 630 review: a budget smartphone for thAs phones like the Moto E have proven before, a compelling price point isn’t always enough.

You get much more than you have payed for the device. It comes out of the box with Windows 8.1 which is great, but bellow average camera is something that really doesn't make any sense.Call quality is very good, screen is also awesome for this price range.Also the package is very poor, and in the box with device only comes the charger.Engadget Reader50July 5, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A disappointing product with a lot of problems. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90June 18, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!After using an iPhone 3GS , a Lumia 800 , an iPhone 4S and now finally back to Windows Phone I can say that it never felt better. It's snappy , the app's aren't as big of a problem as it used to be and I really like Cortana. I do not agree with Engadget's review and I do recommend anyone in the market for a cheap Windows Phone to check this one out.Engadget Reader20June 2, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Keeping in mind this phone has been advertised with a Â£90 rrp on every single press release for more than one month and Microsoft decided to put it on sale with a Â£130 price tag, this can't be but another experimental overpriced entry level mobile phone. Nokia is dead, welcome to Microsoft! ;)Engadget Reader90May 24, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - Engadget
