Nokia is joining Motorola in the sub-£90 smartphone bracket, launching the Lumia 630, which features a 4.5-inch display and will go on sale in the UK on 29 May.
Now owned by Microsoft, but still using its original name, Nokia says the 630 is the most affordable Lumia to date and it will come with Windows Phone 8.1, the newly released version of Microsoft’s mobile operating system.

Borrowing many design cues from the rest of the Lumia range, the 630 has a rear cover made of matt-finished polycarbonate which is interchangeable and available in a range of different colours.
The screen has a resolution of 845 x 480, which means it won’t be troubling the HD displays of its more expensive rivals, but at £89.95 SIM-free we can’t complain - the Lumia 630 will act as a strong Windows Phone rival to the equally-priced Motorola Moto E.
The Lumia 630 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and with 512MB of RAM. There’s just 8GB of internal storage, but this can be increased by up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. Around the back, Nokia has fitted a 5-megapixel camera.
The phone goes on sale in the UK at Carphone Warehouse, EE, O2, Tesco and Amazon from £89.95 and will be available in a range of colours including bright orange, bright yellow, bright green, white and black.
