    Can somebody explain the fitness something in L630? I read it has some low powered sensor for fitness tracking. I don't understand. I downloaded Bing health and fitness app on my L620 and I can track via GPS my walking and running etc. What is the selling point for L630?

    This phone would be nice for my friend who wants a dual sim but still 160€ too expensive, 100€ would be fair

    Sensorcore ! I think they posted about it today. Basically it functions as a proximity sensor and movement tracking.

    Not me for sure!
    Come on no 720p, no FFC and only 512MB RAM? How can the Lumia 630 compete with Moto G? Just microSD card support is not worth it. Why couldn't they have included 720p, FFC and 1GB RAM for Lumia 630 and price it equal to 8GB Moto G for $179 is beyond my comprehension!!

    For $20 it seems like they are missing out on such a huge opportunity to stick it to Android:-(
    Just as a point of order, your comment on the 720p is incorrect.

    Sensorcore can be set to permanently active, bing health has to be running to track your movements, whereas sensorcore tracks all the time (also, bing fitness does not track steps). I am not sure if any apps have been released yet that use the data directly, but it is stored on the phone, so can be historically interrogated. I have found that when accessing GPS aware applications, my location is immediately available, rather than waiting for a fix.

    PS - I should point out I got my dual sim 630 direct from India yesterday. Now set up with giffgaff and a work O2 sim, so far am very happy with the upgrade from my 620 - yes, thats right I said upgrade, let the flames begin....

    :o)

    In some markets, this phone may perform well but with the Moto g being competitively priced, I just don't know...

    That is great! Is 3G working on your device on both the operators? It would be helpful for other users in the United Kingdom. Hopefully the 'dual-sim' phenomenon will catch on in more territories,so we can see more windows phones with dual sim function.

    Data works for both operators, but only one at a time. You can easily select which sim to use and after a quick restart of the cell connections you are up and running. The logic and settings you can use for the dual Sims is very powerful in fact. So far I am very happy 😊

    Just as a refresh on the Bing Fitness topic, I can confirm that after the last update it is now showing my steps information. It has access to all the historical data, including prior to the actual app update. It also provides more customisation in the bing health app itself

    • Steps goal per day
    • Stride length (walking)
    • Stride length (running)
    • Acievement alerts (daily target met)


    It also show detailed analysis of daily (by hour) results, last 7 days and also last month along with yesterdays results as a comparison. The newly pinnable live tile shows steps taken today, and distance travelled.

    Cardio tracker now includes steps results along with manually added and GPS tracked activities.

    All in all, a pretty robust setup for the fitness fanatic!

    Nick.

    quad core with 512 mb (630) or dual core with 1 gb ram(525)
    or simply 620 with front camera and flash
    as it can also run wp8.1 quite smoothly if 630 is running it with same amount of ram
    which one is better
    pls rply fast guyz
    630 I guess...newer chipset... And future OS updates will likely come to 630 more than 525

    Hi guys, I'm new here! I'v registered myself just to Know something more about this new device but, reading you, I dont think is more a good idea actually.
    I'm looking for a dual sim smartphone: I'm using my Lumia 520 for type this post and I like it very much. I'v just bought it because my Samsung S3 found a terribile system bug and I needed a smartphone in the meantime so I'v decided to try WP.
    Now that I need a dual sim device I want to stay in WP (much better than Android or IOS for my personal use)... Is really 630 this bad? I don't care about flash light, I just need a fast device with a good display both in colors and sensitivity. Can this be my chose?

    Sorry for my english, regards!
    It's a decent device to consider if u don't need a FFC or flash

    I think they called it the 630 because they are planning to drop the 5XX range because lets face it the 5xx and 6xx ranges were so similar it's not worth having both the 630/635 can be the super low end cheap phone for people with not much money, then the 730 (hopefully coming soon) can be the Moto G competitor with 720p display, flash, 1GB RAM, 8MP camera etc then not sure what the 830 could be and then the 930 is the super high end top of the range incredible crazy quality premium device, then the 1030 can be the same as 930 but with super incredibly amazing camera and 1520 is just larger 930 with larger screen and bigger battery
    Or they are planning to make the 5xx series even cheaper

    Yes, my cousin brother actually owns l630 and when the phone is brought close/contact with the ear, it switches off the display and hence works as a proximity sensor. If proximity sensor does something else too, I am certainly willing to learn.

    I'm just going for the 1320 when funds allow.. personally I feel that the 630 would be a downgrade from my 620.

    that i know....but what has that got yo do with the sensor core?....basically the phone's screen turns off when there is a large area of the screen in contact with your skin... nothing to do with sensor core

    I bought one two days ago and must say I really like it, it is my first WP8 device and now wont be my last. I see that it is a basic model and for $239 AUD it is consided a cheap mid range device here is Austrlia, I will be looking at another high end device in the next 2-6 months when I possibley look at a new plan.

    I have been using Android devices for over 4 years and decided after leaving my last job (they supplied me with a number of Android devices) to make the switch. I have used Windows devices 15+ years ago with windows mobile devices like the PPC-6600 Harrier and the PPC=6700 Apache (This is were my user name came from) and the HTC HD2, wasn't very impressed with WP7 so made the change to Android.

    Great to be back in the technology forums after a move away to more EDC (Every Day Carry) forums. Hope to get some tips and tricks from you all over the next couple of weeks/months

    Cheers
