Nokia Lumia 630, HSPA+ (3G)
Nokia Lumia 630 Dual SIM, HSPA+ (3G)
Nokia Lumia 635, LTE (4G) so, only dual SIM is 630 with 3G.
Yes 630 & 635 will be a super deal for a budget phone, and I'm sure those who complained about flash feature are not using 520, and not even on the low-end level of market. So there will always be a better phone that will suit you better, a more expensive one perhaps?
Keep calm guys.
4.5 inch screen. corning glass 3. yes compass. no flash.
apparently 512 mb ram?
damn i'm happier with my 720.
No 1GB RAM
I don't know is it only me or everyone else feel the same with me, but I prefer a phone with "not too big" screen
Only half gig RAM. No flash. Still the same screen resolution. And it looks EXACTLY like iPhone 5C! Not only the form factor and design but colors as well! They are ugly as hell. Not a worthy successor to the venerable 620 at all.
