Nokia Lumia 630 Review – Nokia and their array of Windows Phone devices are slowly making an impression on the mobile market. This is due to the fact that Nokia are still looking to cater to everyone userdemographic possible. The Nokia Lumia 630 is one of the devices created to satisfy those looking for an affordable mid-range device and there is quite a lot to look forward to.
Nokia Lumia 630, Duality Made Better
The Nokia Lumia 630 comes in a robust and exceptional build, with an interchangeable shell which comes in several colours. Its IPS display makes viewing on the phone more comfortable and glare is not much of an issue. In overall design, the phone is simplistic and easy to get accustomed to. Keeping up with the times, the Lumia 630t has the ability to store two micro SIM cards and the second SIM card is actually hot-swappable. While it has an acceptable 5MP camera on the back, the Lumia 630 doesn’t feature a front camera, which means no selfies with this device.
Its 8GB internal storage may not be much but the device does support microSD cards up to 128GB, which is useful for those who watch videos and takes lots of pictures with their mobile devices. Performance wise, it is a rather impressive upgrade from the Lumia 620 and it can be seen when we were testing it using the AnTuTu benchmarking system and testing the device on various apps.
With most of the games that require 1GB of RAM now being able to be played on devices with 512MB RAM, the Lumia 630 has a wide variety of games to play with such as Asphalt 6 and Temple Run 2. Navigating through the apps is also fast and snappy with only slight lag when over 50 percent of its storage capacity is reached. In addition to that, it also has a marvellous battery life which can easily last you throughout your busy day with ease, as during our test it lasted a whole day with gaming and texting while surfing the web all done throughout the day.
Overall, this is a good budget phone for users who wants extra productivity packed into a mobile package or for those who want a small secondary phone that won’t cost a bomb. With its bright coloured designs and easy to use applications, this will definitely be one of the ways Nokia will be making its mark on the mobile market.
