No we were lucky enough to get a hands on with the Lumia 630 at the gadget Show live 2014 in Birmingham and the handset surprised us with its great design and quality build.
The 630 will be the first UK handset to launch with the latest Windows Phone 8.1 OS that was announced at the same time as the Lumia 630 at the Microsoft Build conference in San Francisco. The update is the first major change to the Windows Phone 8 software and features new background images, expanded tiles and a host of new Nokia features like Living Images and Nokia’s creative studio.
