Microsoft made the Lumia 638 official in India a day back and for the most part, it looks exactly like the Nokia Lumia 630 in terms of design, screens size and the features. So what exactly is different among the two? Let’s find out
Lumia 638 is a 4G & Higher Memory Version of Lumia 630
Lumia 630 and 638 are completely identical in terms of the looks, screen size, physical dimensions and basically everything else. The only real difference between the two is that the Lumia 638 is a 4G version with 1GB of RAM while Lumia 630 only supports 3G and comes with 512MB of RAM. There is also a slight difference in weight (Lumia 638 is 2 grams heavier) and screen density (Lumia 638 has slightly lesser ppi). Besides these, the camera, battery and all the hardware remains the same as seen on the Lumia 630. Unlike Lumia 630, the Lumia 638 does not have a Dual-SIM version though.
If we compare the Lumia 638 with Lumia 635, the difference even reduces as Lumia 635 is already 4G data capable and hence only difference amongst two will be of the extra RAM. It is similar to how Lumia 525 was launched with more memory while keeping everything else the same as was in Lumia 520.
Extra memory will definitely be beneficial as the memory demand of modern day apps keeps on increasing. Multitasking will also be smoother with more number of apps being kept open in the background. The extra memory also entitles the phone to be able to install many games which don’t yet support 512MB RAM devices.
