    As I own both a 720 and 630, I thought it would be a good idea to show a comparison of the cameras.

    A second hand 720 is about the same price as a new 635 (same cam as 630). All pics were taken with the normal Microsoft camera app on default settings (flash off on 720).

    Obviously the 720 wins, but I'm surprised by how capable the 630 is in comparison. Low light is nowhere near as good, and everything looks over sharpened, but it's a capable shooter.

    I also tested the video capabilities of each phone.

    The Lumia 720 wins this one hands down, despite both phones recording in 720p and at the same bitrate. The 630 lacks detail in comparison to the 720.
