Nokia Lumia 630 Manual
What we have seen form Nokia over the past year is an increase in battery life with an increase in CPU power. Compare the Nokia Lumia 520 which was released in February 2013 less than 12 months before the release of the Nokia Lumia 630 and we see a noticeable difference. The user manual for the Lumia 630 is listed below.
The Lumia 520 originally came with a Dual-core 1 GHz processor. However, with the rise in app usage, the Lumia 630 now boasts a Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 processor. This is a significant increase in processing power within just a year. Interestingly, the GPU processor remains the same with a respectable Adreno 305. While GPUs may not be as crucial as raw CPU power currently, as apps and software become more complex, it’s likely we’ll see further enhancements to the GPU setup in the Lumia range of mobile phones.
In terms of battery life, there’s been a substantial improvement. The older 520 had a standby time of 360 hours, while the latest version, the 630, has a standby time of 600 hours – almost double in just a year. This is mainly due to a better setup and an improved battery, which now holds Li-Ion 1830 mAh instead of the usual Li-Ion 1430 mAh.
However, the Nokia Lumia 630 has had its share of issues. Reports indicate that the Lumia 630, particularly the dual-SIM variant, experiences phone call audio loss. There’s also a dimming along the top of the screen. Additionally, the Microsoft operating system it uses does not allow setting Google as the default search engine, which is typical of Microsoft but not a major issue for most users.
Regarding the camera, there’s been no change. It remains a 5 MP, 2592 х 1944 pixels with autofocus. The phone does not have a secondary camera, and the video rate is still the same at 720p@30fps. Overall, the Lumia 630 is a decent mobile phone that offers good value for its price. Compare this to the Nokia Lumia 510 Manual as well.
Transferring Content to Your Nokia Lumia
If you’ve got a new phone and don’t want to lose your photos, videos, and other important stuff from your old phone, there are handy ways to transfer content to your new phone. However, these instructions might not apply to all phone models and manufacturers.
You might need to install some apps on your phone or computer for the transfer. Depending on what you need to install and how much content you’re transferring, the transfer might take some time. Some file formats might not be transferred. Some third-party converter apps might be available to convert the files to a format that can be transferred.
To have your closest contacts instantly at your fingertips, use the Transfer my Data app to easily copy your contacts, text messages, and pictures from your old phone. The app might not work with all phone models.
Here’s a tip: If you have an older Windows Phone device, or have previously backed up your contacts in your Microsoft Account, you can also add your account to your phone, and import the contacts to your phone straight from the service.
Your old phone needs to support Bluetooth. The contacts on your old phone need to be stored in the phone memory, not on the SIM.
- On your old phone, switch Bluetooth on, and make sure the phone is visible to other devices.
- On the start screen of your new phone, swipe left, and tap Transfer my Data.
- Tap continue, and switch Bluetooth on.
- Select your old phone from the list of found devices, and follow the instructions shown on both phones.
If your contacts are written in a language that is not supported by your new phone, the contact info may not be shown correctly. Likewise see also the Nokia Lumia 928 User Manual article on here.
Maximizing Your Phone’s Battery Life
Want to make your phone’s battery last longer? Here are some steps you can take:
- Charge Smartly: Always make sure your battery is fully charged.
- Choose Your Sounds: Turn off unnecessary sounds like key press sounds. You can do this by swiping down from the top of the screen, tapping ALL SETTINGS > ringtones+sounds, and selecting which sounds to keep.
- Use Headphones: Instead of using the speakerphone, try using wired headphones.
- Activate Battery Saver: This feature can automatically save power when your battery level is low. To check your battery status and turn on Battery Saver, swipe left from the start screen and tap Battery Saver.
- Adjust Screen Settings: Set your phone screen to switch off after a short time. You can do this by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping ALL SETTINGS > lock screen > Screen times out after.
- Lower Screen Brightness: Lowering your screen brightness can save battery. Make sure that ‘Automatically adjust’ is switched to Off. Then, switch Level to low, and switch ‘Automatically adjust’ back to On.
- Close Unused Apps: Make sure to close apps that you’re not using.
- Use Location Services Wisely: If you want to keep location services on but don’t want to use check-in services, swipe left from the start screen, tap Settings, swipe to applications, tap people, and switch ‘Use my location’ to Off.
- Be Smart with Network Connections: Check for new mail less frequently or even by request only. Switch Bluetooth on only when needed. Use a Wi-Fi connection instead of mobile data. Stop your phone from scanning for available wireless networks. If you’re using your phone but don’t want to make or receive calls, switch airplane mode on.
Saving on Data Roaming Costs
Want to cut down on your phone bills? You can reduce data roaming costs by changing your mobile data settings. Data roaming means using your phone to receive data over networks that your network service provider doesn’t own or operate. Connecting to the internet when roaming, especially abroad, can significantly increase data costs. Your network service provider can charge you a fixed fee for data transfer or on a pay-as-you-use basis.
To use the optimal connection method, change the Wi-Fi, mobile data, and mail download settings. Using a Wi-Fi connection is generally faster and less expensive than using a mobile data connection. If both Wi-Fi and mobile data connections are available, your phone uses the Wi-Fi connection.
To close a mobile data connection, swipe down from the top of the screen, tap ALL SETTINGS > cellular+SIM, and switch ‘Data connection’ to off. You can also monitor your data usage with the data sense app. To stop data roaming, swipe down from the top of the screen, tap ALL SETTINGS > cellular+SIM, and switch ‘Data roaming options’ to ‘Don’t roam’.
