Nokia Lumia 630/635 review: Bottom up

23 May 2014
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...

No front camera.Money spent on 630 isn't worth it.It's better you go for 730 instead.

Lumia 630 bought it in the offer couple of weeks back..

Lot of problems checked with Nokia sevics center they advised me u can't expect this more than average performance and heard form them soon this model gone stopped due to many issues reported..

Very basic phone can be used basic purpose not as smart phone .. Go for lumia 625 or 730

Waste mobile... Not considered to be smart mobile.. No headset and data cable... Depressed with this phone .. Phone frequently hangs while checking mails...512 mb ram not enough for primary application like Microsoft office and outlook application...

I own this phone, the dual sim version, since 2 weeks now. I had an iPhone 4 before. I am so happy with the Lumia 630 ! Everything is working smooth, no lags, no crashes. Display is surpeisingly good, even in sunlight ! Photos are exellent , inside, of course , quality is not so good, no flash. But after all I want a phone I can rely on thr whole day. Battery life is great , finally no charging needed during the day.
So I am really happy , thiusis my first windows phone and it won't be my last one.

Here's my view about this phone after six months of usage.
Good display, camera is good, battery life is very good, internet speed is ok, it's blazing fast.gaming is good.loud speaker.

Internet explores crashes often.
Audio is sometime blurry.
Heating issues(back and screen gets heated up after playing games,watching videos,while charging and while calling.)
Camera app is slow.
All video codec are not supported.(recommending to download moliplayer).

I still like this phone as its having all the apps that I need for daily usage
Important games such as asphalt are available. Mainly you can live with these cons I mentioned.

Still u may get a bit heat.
It must be some optimisation problem.

A put aside my gionee p4 and bought L630 and dang!
L630 doesn't have a smart dial, dull sound system-no equalizer, poor facebook apps. relativity slow 🐌 comparing my 1 GB ram Android phone.
The only good side are: Good camera and cool people hub. The disply also like anti aliasing not nice towards my eyes. Gotta get a Sony when Droid L released for general phones
