As you'd expect from a Lumia phone, the 630yes, I'm  comes in five bright colors.

Small and slim

The 4.5-inch Lumia 630 is comfortable to hold and the volume and power buttons rise above the surface for easy finding. Unlike other Nokia phones, the Lumia 630 doesn't pack a hardware camera button.

Solo camera

The solitary 5-megapixel camera lacks a flash and the camera app is difficult to access if it's not pinned to your start-screen. Selfie-fans might want to skip the Lumia 630 if a front-facing camera is a must-have.

The Lumia 635 ships with a glossy back cover (top) while the Lumia 630 (bottom) has a matte cover. However, you can buy any cover you want for either model.

The only other difference between the two handsets is that the Lumia 635 has 4G LTE capabilities, while the Lumia 630 is a slight downgrade, only offering 3G speeds.

The Lumia 930 comes in both single and dual SIM versions. Here you can see the two SIM card slots behind the battery cover.

Removable back cover

And gere you can the single SIM version.

Cornicopia of colors

If the Nokia Lumia 630's $179 price suits your fancy, the variety of colors and finishes for the peel-away back cover might too.

Removing them is easier than it looks -- they simply peel off like a sticker.

Surprisingly light

The microUSB slot is used to sync your phone and charge it.
