Updated Lumia 630 Dual Sim to Windows 10

When I read from various forums that a Windows 10 update was rolled out for selected Lumia phones, I got excited when I knew that the Lumia 630 was one of the first Microsoft phones to receive this update.

For a budget phone such as the Lumia 630, it is pleasantly surprising that it can manage an upgrade. This will give it a chance to test its stability. Microsoft gave a fair warning that this Technical Preview may be risky if you are doing it on your primary phone. After backing up my files, I started out with a clean slate and updated the device to Lumia Cyan through the phone update command.

Following the instructions provided by the windows blog, I downloaded the Windows Insider App from the Store and followed the steps on the insider app. There were two versions to choose from and I chose Insider Slow just to be careful not to brick my phone.

After the update and installation, phone showed Welcome to Lumia Denim. There weren’t any obvious changes, so I thought that the update was a failure.  About 20 minutes later my phone flashed a notice through the Windows Insider app saying that the “phone has been rebooted.”

A reboot followed as well as the image of two turning wheels, a very familiar sight among Windows phone users. After a few more minutes of waiting, my phone was finally updated successfully with Windows 10.

As my initial observation, I find the default text too small. The scrolling movement is not as smooth as that of the 8.1 version. It was like using a cheap Android phone. No offense meant for Android users, but those of you who have used Windows 8 know exactly what I mean by smooth movement.

Anyway, the update is still in its Beta version. I’m sure there will be more developments ahead. We’ll keep hoping for the best.
