    512 mb ram only? -_- seriously 1gb should be the standard now. What is the point of putting Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 and Adreno 305 gpu in Lumia 630 if it has only 512mb ram?

    Cost?
    I don't like it, but I'm sure they have an inkling as to why.

    I'm not sure if costs are the real factor here, RAM is cheap these days and 630 doesn't have a lot of other features like sensors, front camera and led light, which I understand were left out due to costs. Nonetheless the phone is FAST even with 512 MB RAM, unlike Android phones :) so no worries there unless you need the extra RAM for gaming but then I guess this ain't your phone altogether ...

    Now, I have a 630, and I have an inkling as to why.

    The screen is beautiful. That's it. This can top an iPhone screen, and that's not an overstatement.

    The battery is nice as well. It's been a while since Nokia put out phones with decent battery capacities.

    However, I believe that it really feels halfhearted. I mean, I don't really care about the FFC, and the flash is always remedied by better lighting, but the proximity sensor is irreplaceable. Without it, the beautiful screen can't have Glance, or Double tap-to-wake. I can't even flip to silence the phone.

    Such a shame since I believe this is the most beautiful Windows Phone since the 720. (And this, I believe, can stay on par with N9 on design alone.)

    This you can, it's in settings > audio.
    I don't use it though as I'm used to simply press the stand by button to silence ringing phone.

    This is my very first Windows Phone and I do not see (yet?) any problems related to memory.

    512mb ram is really sufficient if you are not installing heavy 3d games.

    Thanks. Very unlikely that I will install any games apart from the obvious small ones.
