Nokia Lumia 630 Review
The Nokia Lumina 630 is a low budget phone that is geared towards the user who wants a low cost, basic phone. It comes in eye popping colors, and is the first phone that comes with Windows 8.1 right out of the box. Unfortunately, it does have a few minor issues that hamper its full potential. The Lumina 630 has a basic look. It’s clean and simple, and the case colors available are eye catching and distinctive. Whatever you choose - bright green, bright yellow, bright orange, basic black or gleaming white - you will definitely send a message.
The phone has a good sized 4.5 inch, 480 x 854 display. Since the back is plastic, it won’t show smudges or fingerprints, and with the colors, you will always be able to find it. The screen display isn’t edge to edge. There is a black border that runs around the edge, and it’s wider at the top and bottom. The reason for this is to allow room for the Nokia logo and ear pieces at the top, and the three soft keys at the bottom. The back of the phone is simple as well, with the 5MP camera lens and speaker.
The right side has the phones actual buttons, the power button and a volume rocker. The left side is clean, with no buttons or ports. The top has the 3.5mm headphone jack, and the bottom has the micro USB port for charging. The Lumina 630 uses a Snapdragon Quad Core processor running at 1.2GHz, which isn’t the speediest kid on the block. The phones RAM is only 512MB, but on board storage is good at 8GB. You can add a micro SD card for additional storage if you need it. The only sensors are an accelerometer and SensorCore for the integrated pedometer. The Nokia Lumina 630 does not have a front facing camera, or flash for the rear camera.
The Lumina 630 comes with Windows 8.1 as its operating system. It also comes with “Cortana”, Microsoft’s answer to Siri. Cortana is a voice activated digital assistant, and it works pretty well. Speech recognition is good, and fast, and is tied into the core phone functions. Cortana is designed to learn your preferences and store them internally, so next time she knows what you prefer, from hotel preferences to when you want the ringer shut off because you’re watching the game. The Lumina 630 comes with a bundle of applications, including Vine, Vimeo, Instagram, and Skype. Battery life is pretty good. In 3G mode, you can expect about 10 hours of talk time. Standby time is around 16 hours, and you can play your favorite music for 54 hours.
The Nokia Lumina 630 is an adequate, entry level phone that has some interesting features despite its low price. It does the basics and performs well doing them. Cortana is a treat to use, and the battery life is good for a phone at this price. If you are looking for a no nonsense basic smartphone, this might just be the hidden gem you were looking for.
