bought LUMIA 630 on 01/06/14 from a local store AND NOW IT IS SAFELY DEPOSITED IN NOKIA CARE (dont panic!!! a minor display problem). below i am describing my firstever experience with a Lumia and WINDOWS PHONE 8.1
(i am a general but curious user of gadgets and previously owned a MICROMAX A 52 WITH Android 2.3.6)
I searched the net for nearly one month and found that Lumia 520 is a hit. as i needed a dual sim phone and i got bored with Android's common UI, i bought Lumia 630 DS.
I will not repeat the merits and demerits of this phone once again because u all know about them already. rather i will tell about my experience which, i think, will show light to the future buyers.
the phone and the OS both are smooth, lag-free but the OS is quite complicated. An Android user will find it difficult to use and find the things in phone. the OS is not as user-friendly as Android.
the WINDOWS STORE lacks the vitality of PLAY STORE. even if i neglect the numbers of apps , WP store lacks the essential and user friendly apps like MX PLAYER, JET AUDIO BASIC, CALL RECORDER and many more. (though the native vid player of Lumia 630 can play HD vid, i found it less user-friendly and there were no Free video player like mx player in the WP store). i've heard that too much restrictions on 3rd party App preventing the Developers from making good and user-friendly Apps. IT IS NOT TRUE THAT ONLY GOOD AND WORTHY APPS WERE PLACED IN WP STORE. I FOUND MANY BOGUS AND FAKE APPS IN THE WP STORE.
my phone has a manufacturing problem. the lower portion of the touch screen is not responding properly. so i brought it to the local nokia care. they checked the phone but surprisingly the problem didn't pop out then. i brought it home and downloaded a PAINT APP. when i started drawing lines.... i was unable to draw lines in the lower portion of the screen. went to the nokia care again and showed them the problem. i demanded for a DOA certificate which they refused to give. (my friend got a DOA from MICROMAX immediately). they took my phone and asked me to come at least 25 days later!!!!
well..... Android phones may lag a bit, but they are best for daily use and entertainment purpose. on the other hand Windows phones are secured but THEY ARE STILL UNABLE TO DRAW THE ATTENTION OF COMMON PEOPLE(even after the release of 8.1)
Tryx, 10 Jun 2014Do 630 owners also have uneven display brightness at top of the screen? Seems to be a common p... moreyes. i have faced the problem like that. the lower portion of the screen is not responding properly.

I got my nokia 630 on Friday 6/6/14, it started ok, I moved my apps to the SD card, then the time started changing on its own followed by date, I changed it back it went wrong again then it froze up, took the battery out, then could not call out, then froze again.
best thing about this phone is that when you put your knee on it it does bend well.
so rubbish fone, and the nokia 930 will be as bad.
