Microsoft Nokia Lumia 630 Review


For someone using Microsoft Mango for the last few years, 8.1 is definitely an upgrade.  But there is nothing out of this world about the Lumia 630 dual sim that would have us bouncing off the walls.
Design
What are the chances of Lumia 630 knocking this out of the park? Zero. Zilch. Nada. Yes, the phone looks like any other Lumia.
The rear plastic flap is easy to remove; easier than peeling a banana. The speakers are at the bottom right and are covered by a pinhole on the flap. The phone’s power button lies right below the volume control. And Nokia ditched the capacitive buttons of the previous models for on-screen buttons.
Display and software
The Lumia 630 comes with a 4.5 IPS LCD screen supporting a resolution of 854 X 480 pixels. The screen is guarded by a coat of Gorilla Glass 3, but it heavily reflects smudges. 
The Windows 8.1 live tiles look, as always, fabulous and there is a new addition called the notification bar to the action centre. Another addition is the Word Flow feature that allows you to swipe rather than type a message.
Storage and Performance
The phone is equipped with an 8GB internal storage, and it can be extended up to 128GB.
It is powered by a 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon 400 Quad Core. We did not experience any hiccups with the Lumia 630. Things ran smoothly despite the 512MB RAM and that is where Windows has been able to score over Android. However, for some inexplicable reason, the Lumia was not detecting the closest WiFi router in our building despite picking up the ones far away. The phone does not drain the battery quickly and it is good for a day of basic use.
Camera
For those whose day begins and ends with a selfie, they will have to turn the phone turtle and use their imaginary photo grid instead. By doing away with the front camera, it seems like Nokia frowns on those caught up in the whirligig of duckface selfies. They have thus, in all probability, chose to deny millions of their right to master that perfect pout.
The remnants of this, probably, cost cutting measure is a no-frills 5MP camera that records at 720p quality.
Verdict
The 630 is a good addition to the Lumia stable despite the minor tweaks and improvements. It has its faults and the price bracket does not give it much room to appease the most demanding of customers. People nowadays want all features a designer could cram into a smartphone regardless of whether they use it or not.

Starting any business requires much thought and research. Below are some points that need to be considered before starting an electronic devices repair business.

Electric Vehicles : Sensors and Programming

With the oil crisis of 1970s, which affected our day to day lives in unfathomable ways, the transport industry too took a toll. A steep increase in the fuel prices meant less use of personal vehicles and thus lesser profits for the automotive industry. With no end in sight to the continuous and exponential rise in fuel prices, it was only in the definite interest of the companies to shift from oil as a fuel to better alternatives.
Even though the idea of electric vehicles was prominent then, with some prototypes in existence, the major issue was mileage. With the meager coverage it gave, those cars were pretty useless other than for going shopping inside the city. Long drives and top speeds, the very component of thrill and adventure that car enthusiasts love about a drive was missing. There was no adrenaline rush in Battery Electric Vehicles compared to the traditional Internal Combustion Engine counterparts. 
That is until, the TESLA ROADSTER unveiled in 2008. This car caused a rev…
