Just released WP8.1 phone, with a quad core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, a nice sized screen (Gorilla Glass 3 – so tough too for a budget phone!). 512MB of RAM is a slight disappointment…but only in so far as a few games won't be available for it. In actual performance terms, Windows Phone 8.1 has been heavily optimised to run on even lower spec hardware (the older 520 works great using WP8.1 Developer Preview).

The main competition would seem to be the Moto E (£69.95 from Tesco with the use of some codes)
630 vs Moto E;
(Positives);
-4.5" vs 4.3"
-Snapdragon 400 vs 200
-Better camera
-8GB of internal storage AND simple way to save apps to SD card
-Cortana coming soon
-Free offline navigation
-Free offline Nokia MixRadio
-Nokia Camera app (full manual controls, including manual focus)

Negatives:
512MB RAM vs 1GB
More limited app store
