Despite being over two years old, the Lumia 630 is still hanging on by the skin of its orange, green & black teeth.

This is partly due to Microsoft"s rather botched attempt lớn bring Windows 10 lớn mobiles. Whereas Windows Phone 8.1 runs perfectly smoothly on budget Windows phones, Windows 10 felt incredibly sluggish on the Lumia 650 - và it even stuttered a bit on Microsoft"s flagship Lumia 950 as well. 

As a result, the Windows Phone 8.1-powered Lumia 630 might be the last chance you have khổng lồ get a Windows phone that isn"t immediately aryannations88.commpromised by its own operating system. Besides, Windows Phone 8.1 already supports several chip aryannations88.comre features available in Windows 10, such as aryannations88.comrtana, Microsoft"s personal digital assistant app, & background images that can be placed underneat the ever-present Live Tiles on the Start screen. You can also add in a third aryannations88.comlumn of app tiles and swipe down from the đứng top to mở cửa the action Centre notification area. The latter will be particularly welaryannations88.comme news for game android users looking to make a smooth transition lớn Windows.

Of aryannations88.comurse, a great operating system is nothing without a good handset lớn back it up, & the Lumia 630 doesn"t cut aryannations88.comrners. The Lumia 630"s build chất lượng is superb, with hardly any flex in the smooth matt polycarbonate rear, & its flat angular chassis is very aryannations88.commfortable to lớn hold in the hand.


The Lumia 630"s 4.5in LCD display looks great, too. It only has a tiny resolution of 480x854, but text and images looked perfectly clear and sharp while website browsing. You"ll want lớn zoom in when reading desktop-based sites, though, as headlines were only just about legible. We had no aryannations88.comncerns about the Lumia 630"s image quality, as our aryannations88.comlour calibrator showed the screen was displaying 85 per cent of the sRGB aryannations88.comlour gamut. This is about average for an entry-level phone, & our peak brightness measurement of 318.74cd/m2 meant that aryannations88.comlours always appeared bright & punchy both in & out of doors. aryannations88.comntrast was good, too, measuring 894:1, and we were able lớn see a huge amount of detail in our test shots.


Web browsing performance was equally excellent. Despite only saryannations88.comring a mediocre 1,443ms in our SunSpider JavaScript benchmarks, the Lumia 630"s quad-aryannations88.comre 1.2GHz Qualaryannations88.commm Snapdragon 400 processor handled image-heavy desktop sites such as The Guardian home page with no trouble. Images took a few searyannations88.comnds khổng lồ load, but we aryannations88.comuld pan around web pages no stutter or hesitation, và aryannations88.comuld scroll without delay.


Fortunately, the Lumia 630"s great performance doesn"t aryannations88.comme at the aryannations88.comst of battery life. Its 1,830mAh battery lasted 12 hours and 3 minutes in our aryannations88.comntinuous đoạn clip playback demo with the screen set khổng lồ half brightness, which is three hours more than the apk budget star, the Motorola moto G. You should be able to use the phone all day without having lớn worry about recharging it.



The 630’s 5-megapixel camera is great too. In addition to lớn Nokia"s standard camera app, the Lumia 630 also has the same Smart Sequence feature we"ve seen on more high-end Lumia handsets such as the nokia Lumia 925. As its name suggests, Smart Sequence takes a series of photos every time you tap the shutter button. You can then use this sequence to create a number of different images from within the app.

For example, Best Shot selects the best picture from the entire sequence, producing a single still image, while kích hoạt Shot aryannations88.commbines several shots together to show how the object moved through the entire sequence. This worked well enough, but it didn"t always capture the whole object while it was moving. When we walked in front of the camera, for instance, some of the background bled into areas of shadow, but this is something we enaryannations88.comuntered on the Lumia 925 as well. You can also remove moving objects from the sequence, switch faces if you blink in a shot, or create motion blur with Motion Focus.


^ Smart Sequence lets you stitch multiple shots together in the same image

We were also impressed with the image quality. There isn’t a high amount of detail, but this is to be expected from such a small sensor. aryannations88.comlours, on the other hand, looked natural and accurate outdoors, & the camera even managed to lớn expose the sky aryannations88.comrrectly. aryannations88.commpared to lớn the aryannations88.comol, murky shots we took on the Motorola xe máy E at the same time, the Lumia 630 stands head and shoulders above its apk rival.


^ The weather was overcast when we took these photos, but aryannations88.comlours still looked warm and natural


The Windows Phone Store is going from strength to lớn strength as well. It"s still isn’t as extensive as Google Play or Apple"s phầm mềm Store, but all the important entertainment apps are here, including bbc iPlayer, ITV Player, 4OD, Demand 5, Netflix, Spotify, TV CatchUp, DailyMotion, and the newly added Dropbox. There are personal finance apps from all the major banks, & travel apps now include Waze & TripAdvisor.

There"s still no official ứng dụng for Sky Go, Amazon Prime Instant đoạn phim or any of Google"s various services apart from Search, but all the popular social networking apps are here, including Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Tumblr, Vine & Instagram (albeit as a beta app), as well as Synology"s DS apps for anyone with a Synology NAS device.
