Nokia Lumia 630 Dual SIM Review – Affordability at Its Best
6 September 2014
Excerpt: 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.
Cons: 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 sensors are among the downsides of the phone as...
Summary: Microsoft’s first phones are designed to showcase Windows Phone 8.1, but they fall slightly short on both ends of the scale. The Lumia 630 looks and feels great for a low-end phone, but the compromises with display brightness, storage, and cameras make it hard to recommend against strong Android...
Pros: Great display, Windows Phone 8.1 improvements, High-res photos, Nice and simple design, Good performance for a low-end device, Reasonable camera
Cons: Bland bulky design, Still lacks quality apps, Slow camera performance, No automatic display brightness, Only 512MB of RAM, No forward-facing camera
Conclusion: Overall, I think the Lumia 630 is a great little dual SIM phone. Priced at AED 599, it’s a good introduction for anyone looking for a cheap dual SIM smartphone. Windows Phone is maturing well as an OS and has many of the commonly used apps like Whatsapp and Instagram now available for it.
Conclusion: 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 relying on the touch screen to know if it’s...
Summary: 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 phone like the Moto G is still the way to go.
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Summary: This looks like just another Microsoft midrange smartphone and an interesting successor to the Lumia 625, it comes with a decent OS, average processor, a clear screen and you won’t have to pay much for it.
Pros: Vibrant design, runs Microsoft phone 8.1 and reasonably priced.
Summary: Being the first dual SIM Lumia smartphone definitely has its perks; you get the elegant design, the new refined Microsoft OS, a clear screen and two SIM cards on board with you at all times. And you won’t have to pay much for it either.
Pros: Vibrant design, runs Microsoft phone 8.1, dual SIM and reasonably priced.
Summary: Just two months after its first official appearance at the Microsoft Build Developers Conference , the Nokia Lumia 630 Dual SIM is now in Malaysia . Made to cater the budget and entry-level users, it is the first Windows Phone 8.1 / Lumia Cyan device to be available in our market and also the first...
Summary: The Nokia Lumia 630 is a mid-range smartphone by the excellent relationship between quality and price, and to whom nothing is missing, if you do not support the LTE network. On the plus side stand the quad-core processor, a display of reasonable quality, support memory cards up to 128 GB, internal...
