Nokia Lumia 630 is an acceptable range for a modern mobile

The Nokia Lumia 630 is a smartphone from the Finnish company Nokia presented three major advantages: price (yet to be confirmed but will be around 140 euros), (operating system Windows Phone in its latest version of Windows Phone 8.) and processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 for four cores at 1.2 GHz). These complemented with other specifications of this handset features allow us to say this is one of the cheapest in the mid range mobile operating system Microsoft. Let’s see if Nokia has managed to create a high-level to midrange honor to its smartphones.

The design of the Nokia Lumia 630 is simple, very simple. As simple as in the back of the phone we find a completely smooth case in which only highlight the main camera, speaker and logo Nokia. Luckily, to give some variety to the design of this terminal have at our disposal different interchangeable covers that are placed and removed easily. The colors available for the Nokia Lumia 630 are green, the yellow, the black, the orange and white.

This simplicity in the design of Nokia Lumia 630 gives it a unique style. This is a phone that anyone is customary in minutes, and its plastic housing offers much more security on hand that even some high-end phones (i.e., at no time have the feeling that the terminal is us go to fall accidentally). Moreover, its size (129.5 x 66.7 x 9.2 mm) and weight (134 grams) do that to be a phone that is easily operated with one hand.

On the right side of the terminal there are two buttons that allow us to lock or unlock the screen and volume up and down (respectively). At the bottom we find the outlet microUSB, while at the top we have a terminal output minijack of 3.5 mm (for connecting headphones and speakers). To insert the card microSD card and SIM we remove the cover and the battery of the mobile.

If we look at the screen resolution of 4.5 inches the Nokia Lumia 630 we see that the exact figure is set at 854 x 480 pixels. It is a type resolution FWVGA, and theory is a kind of simple resolution that only incorporate mobile medium to low range. In practice, the Nokia Lumia 630 offers a quality image that will hardly find any reason to think we would need a higher resolution. Both the photographs and the text are displayed correctly on the screen, so that with this resolution we have more than enough to use on a daily basis this terminal.


A detail worth noting is that, although the screen size is set at 4.5 inches, the virtual buttons on the operating system Windows Phone us some useful remaining space when displaying any type of content. These buttons are present on the screen even when running a game, which means we lose the usable space of a small part of the screen.

Given that we are talking about a terminal designed for the lowest possible cost, it is quite understandable that the only incorporated in this mobile camera comes with a sensor only five megapixels. This is a very simple camera with which we can get out of any trouble when taking a picture, but we avoid very confined spaces because we do not have any LED flash.

If we were talking on a cellphone with another operating system would probably have to emphasize fluency problems when demanding high performance terminal, but the truth is that in the case of the Nokia Lumia 630 is quite an extent for the fact that we meet with the operating system Windows Phone. Both the processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 for four cores running at 1.2 GHz) and memory RAM (512 megabytes) are very well utilized and provide good performance when running any application.

The internal storage capacity is 8 gigabytes, but will have only a little over 3.5 gigabytes when storing our data. Therefore, it is best to introduce from the outset microSD memory card (with a maximum capacity of this mobile is 128 gigabytes).

The operating system with which we are in the Nokia Lumia 630 is Windows Phone on its version of Windows Phone 8.1. Of all the new features that come with this new version, perhaps the most remarkable of all is the emergence of a taskbar similar to the one we have in the mobile operating system Android. This allows us taskbar quick options on and off (the connection WiFi, for example), and it also shows all incoming mobile notifications.

Another remarkable detail is that users coming from Windows Phone 8 will have no problem adapting to this new version since mobile alert us of all changes that have occurred between the two versions. For instance, at the moment we try to do a screenshot using the traditional method of holding down the power button and the Home button, automatically we will display a notice on the screen informing us that now the screen capture performed while holding down the power button and the volume up button.

Concerning applications installed as standard, the Nokia Lumia 630 comes with all the basic programs that you can ask a smartphone. Besides the browser Internet Explorer or application Line, we also found other applications as useful as Drive + HERE or Skype. At the moment we need more applications just have to use the Store, where you will find hundreds of free applications.
