Thanks, however, to the Windows user interface, it will not be difficult for you to notice the low resolution.
The 630 also uses Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection against scratches.
It has great viewing angles with rich colors and brightness, though the reflective screen could be an issue under direct sunlight.
Build The India Times noted that the physical features of the Nokia phone include the signature polycarbonate body in several Lumia devices.
But though the Lumia 630 seems like a unibody design, it’s not.
Its back covers are changeable and available in different colors.
