Introduction Hardware Performance Display Camera Battery Life and Charging Wi-Fi, Cellular, GNSS, Speaker Software và SensorCore Final Words


With the introduction of the Lumia 630 and 635 models, we have sầu our first look at the next generation of low cost Windows Phone devices, and the Lumia 630 is a phone with many firsts for this segment. It’s the first phone launched with Windows Phone 8.1 from any manufacturer. It’s also the first phone released after the acquisition of Notê by Microsoft, though the phone was announced at BUILD prior khổng lồ the final paperwork was completed on the acquisition. This is the first Windows Phone ever with an optional Dual SIM Model. This is also the first Windows Phone which incorporates a SensorCore branded pedometer. It’s the first Windows Phone which replaces the hardware baông chồng, trang chủ, và search keys with on-screen equivalents, & unfortunately it’s the first Windows Phone which is lacking a hardware camera button, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor. This is definitely a device of firsts for Windows Phone, but not all of the firsts are good news.

Last year, Nokia released theLumia 520và khổng lồ say that this one device changed the Windows Phone landscape forever would be an understatement. Microsoft was trying very hard to lớn try & capture some of the high kết thúc điện thoại thông minh segment, but with a smaller phầm mềm store and generally lower specifications than competing devices running Android or iOS, it was a tough sell. Suddenly Nocơ released a device which was a capable smartphone and could be had for a low price – often less than $100 off contract. At the time, competing Android phones in that segment would often be running very old versions of Android, have very low specifications, or both, & of course Apple doesn’t play in this segment. Within a single year, the Lumia 520accounted for over 30%of all Windows Phone devices.

Clearly the high volume for Windows Phone was the low cost, off contract devices. Though Notê (now Microsoft) still continues to lớn make and sell higher kết thúc devices such as the Lumia Ibé (930) and 15đôi mươi phablet, the low end of the market is where the volume is, and many of the changes lớn Windows Phone over the last year have sầu been khổng lồ help drive down costs of the devices by removing the requirements for certain sensors, hardware buttons, and creating a reference platform with Qualcomm to allow ODMs khổng lồ easily create Windows Phone devices. We are seeing the same thing happening with Android as well, with the low cost segment practically ignored by all OEMs until Motorola launched theMokhổng lồ Gwhich is a capable điện thoại thông minh for a budget price, và now with the Moto E they are aiming even lower. The Lumia 5đôi mươi is still a capable competitor at a low price, but the landscape has changed in the past year, and good enough is no longer enough.

By name, the Lumia 630 is the successor khổng lồ the Lumia 6đôi mươi. But truly it is a successor to the Lumia 5trăng tròn, as the Lumia 6đôi mươi still outdoes both the 5trăng tròn and 630 in features.

The 630 loses a lot of features over the Lumia 620 in an effort to hit an even lower price point than the 620 did. It keeps the ClearBlack display (more on that later) but loses practically everything else. The Front Facing Camera is gone, the rear LED flash is no more. Near Field Communication (NFC) was in the 6đôi mươi, but is no longer in the 630. In fact, as seen in the above chart, the 630 even loses out over the 520 with the laông xã of proximity sensor, and more importantly the ambient light sensor. All of this was an effort to keep the Bill of Materials down to lớn allow the device lớn be sold for a lower price, and on that front they did vì well with the Lumia 630 having an off-contract price of around $160, compared khổng lồ the Lumia 6trăng tròn which was about $240 when it launched.

The biggest omission in my opinion though is the lachồng of Glance Screen support. For those that haven’t used a Lumia with Glance, it arrived last year with the “Amber” firmware update, and first debuted on the Lumia 925. It’s been updated several times, & the most current version of Glance is simply fantastic. With Windows Phone market share not being very high, it’s probably a good idea lớn go over Glance. The Glance screen is simply the phone displaying some information on the display when the device is powered off.

With all versions of Glance, the cloông xã and several phone settings such as vibrate or charging would be displayed on the screen. With updates to the firmware, other features soon came such as the ability khổng lồ display loông xã screen notifications on the glance screen as well, so you can tell if you’ve sầu missed calls, texts, or other notifications with the device off. With the last update to lớn glance, the detailed lochồng screen notification for Windows Phone (in my case, my next appointment in the calendar) will briefly appear on the Glance screen when you either turn off the phone, or if the phone senses your hvà over the phone. The detailed info goes away at the first Glance refresh lớn keep the power consumption down. You can optionally enable Glance periodically at an interval, or with a peek mode where it will only enable Glance when it senses your hand over the display.

Glance works by utilizing panel self-refresh to lớn be able to lớn display some items with the display off. This feature is better with AMOLED displays, because they can display a small amount of trắng text with minimal power draw, but even so Notê has made the Glance screen optional on LCD equipped devices as well, including the Lumia 6đôi mươi. As for why it’s missing, as with everything it comes down to cost. The Lumia Ibé (930) is also missing Glance because Notê couldn’t source a panel with memory for a reasonable price, but the 630 has the added caveat of not including either ambient light or proximity sensors lớn disable Glance when the phone is in your pocket. We're not sure if the 630 display includes memory or not but it could certainly be a contributing factor to it being unavailable on this mã sản phẩm.
