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

Ratings in depth Update: The Nokia Lumia 630 is becoming cheaper all the time and new phones have arrived to challenge it, including newer Lumia handsets. Our review now reflects this.

Nokia Lumia 630 review - Pocket-lint

 

-

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

The Nokia Lumia 630 is something of a mixed bag. It's cheap, cheerful and Nokia succeeds in delivering a bright and well built handset that's ahead of many competitors' plastic offerings. It also gives you the latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system...

Is the eye-catching Nokia Lumia 630 a worthy budget Android challenger?

Expandable memory ; Snazzy styling ; Spectacular software

Average screen ; Unexceptional camera sensor ; Apps still behind rivals

Nokia Lumia 630 review and Lumia 635 review

 

We'll get to the software shortly, but the 630 itself is all about price. You can buy the smartphone outright for just £129. There are some compromises though, notably the lack of 4G support, and there's plenty of competition from budget Android...

If you're considering the Lumia 630 as a first smartphone and you don't plan to buy lots of wireless accessories and install lots of apps, it's not a bad choice at all. Windows Phone 8.1 is very easy to use, and will improve even more when Cortana and...

VIDEO: Nokia Lumia 630 - a budget smartphone running Windows Phone 8.1

 

The Lumia 630 is the first smartphone to launch with Windows Phone 8.1. This is a fairly major software update which includes many new features, although some such as Cortana won't be made available in the UK until much later this year.

Nokia Lumia 630 review

 

What does a £90 smartphone look like in 2014? Better than you think - at least where this Nokia's concerned

Cheap ; Decent screen for the money ; WinPho 8.1 and Nokia tricks ; Big microSD storage

No 4G ; No front camera or rear flash ; Official Cortana support is US only (for now)

Cheap, cheerful and reliable, the Lumia 630 is only outclassed by the best budget Androids

Nokia Lumia 630

 

An object lesson in how to stand still

Colourful design, Reasonable camera, Accessible price

Low-res, blocky screen, Some apps not available on Windows Phone 8.1, No auto brightness screen setting
