    moto e got above 1124 ratings in 24 hrs(flipkart) and l630 got hardly got 10 :(....people are going mad about moto..


    edit:btw i never knew l520 had krait... i had just noticed the adreno-350....but even with this specs because of the poor porting or dono what even the old temple run acts sort of strange when compared to android ver...it has awesome fps but still sort of sucks..
    There are many factors: price difference, madness about android in India, buzz created by social media and websites biased towards android. Plus, Nokia 630 is not yet available on WS Retail, the seller backed by Flipkart. WS retail price and return policy( of 30 days compared to 10 days by other sellers) prompt people to buy from them. People trust WS Retail. People were worried that Moto E would be out of stock soon(and it is out of stock now). More buyers, more reviews. Nonetheless, Moto E is still a steal at that price and you can buy that because that is good phone at that price. You are right, Moto E and Moto G will join forces to hurt sales of Nokia 630. But we will do see certified buyers' reviews as soon as 630 is in stock of WS Retail. Dual SIM + Windows Phone 8.1 = Nokia 630 at this time,no other choice.

    You can still play MOST games on 512 MB devices. Temple run 2 included.
    Temple Run 2 can run even on 256MB RAM , If games like TR2 need 512MB RAM , then its seriously wrong......with either developer or platform.

    I think every game should be able to 512MB RAM devices (yes , even games like San Andreas shouldn't need more than 512MB RAM)....

    Moto E doesn't look that good according to this review. Performance is not so great at all.

    As you may know, Motorola just released the Moto E at $130, and it is targeting the same market segment this device is intended to target. The Lumia 630 has a better CPU, but the Moto E has more RAM. Also, it hasn't been pointed out much, but the Lumia 630 will only be marginally faster than the Lumia 520 - it may have twice as many CPU cores and a 20% faster clock speed, but the Cortex A7 cores in the Lumia 630 are slower than the Krait cores in the Lumia 520.
    Honestly, it would've made more sense to push the Lumia 525 to a broader market.
    Not true. I had a phone with the same specs just like Moto E and now I have Lumia 630 dual sim, which is incomparably faster. Android needs that much RAM but WP apparently does not. Do not get fooled by the hardware alone, OS makes all the difference. Not to mention that WP 8.1 apparently learned not only from own bot also other's mistakes and made a lot of basic apps like mail client better, so there's at least no need to download third party apps.

    I haven't tested yet, but at least based on synthetic benchmarks I'd expect the Lumia 630 to actually be slower than the 520 at almost everything except IE. I suspect it won't be noticeably slower though, particularly because very little of the UI is powered by the CPU.
    Nokia Lumia 630 review: Bottom up - page 5 - GSMArena.comThe Basemark OS II score for the Lumia 630 is quite telling - 90% of the score of the 1020 running 8.1. Basemark OS II is pretty good, it tests processor, graphics, memory access, browser javascript, the works.

    Slower than a 520? Not likely!

    I dont get it.

    Why is people comparing the 630 with the Moto E ??

    The Moto G is the competition... same processor, same internal memory, double the RAM, front camera, stronger battery, better screen resolution. It loses only by not having sd card.

    Here in Brazil the Moto G is cheaper than de Lumia 630 !

    I cant imagine why ANYONE would buy the Lumia instead, the hardware is not appealing, the app store is no appealing, the price is not appealing.

    For a company in desperate need of more marketshare i would say Microsoft is doing an awful job.

    I exchanged a Lumia 630 for a Moto E. It's an ugly, boring, uninspired phone, and the camera is completely useless. But the screen is much better (more pixels, brighter, oleo-phobic coating), it's more comfortable to hold (smaller, curved) and can actually do things besides making phone calls. Cheaper, too.
