Nokia Lumia 635 review: Is this budget 4G Windows Phone worth a little extra?

 

Summary: Microsoft has updated the low-end 630 with LTE connectivity and a larger price tag to match.

Nokia Lumia 635 (T-Mobile)

 

Amazing value for money. Great design. Good-looking, easy-to-use OS

No front-facing camera. No flash on rear camera. Fewer applications than Android

The Nokia Lumia 635's style puts it way ahead of other inexpensive smartphones on T-Mobile, although its camera capabilities are seriously lacking.

Nokia Lumia 635 Review

 

The Nokia Lumia 635 offers a vivid display, responsive performance and long battery life at a wallet-pleasing price.

Very affordable; Sturdy and fairly lightweight design; Long battery life; Swift performance

Lacks front camera and rear-facing flash; Camera takes fuzzy, washed out photos; Weak speaker

The Nokia Lumia 635 offers a vivid display, responsive performance and long battery life at a wallet-pleasing price.

Thrifty, Yet Nifty

 

Given the deep morass Nokia and Microsoft are currently slogging through—the blah earnings , the layoff plans , a still-small app store , general confusion —it's refreshing to see that the mobile phone partnership is not all doom and gloom. The Lumia...

Very accessible price for 4G LTE networking and a fresh OS. Windows Phone updated to include Cortana, better notifications, and tighter integration with Microsoft cloud services. Colorful interchangeable covers, solid body. Support for up to 128GB of...

Lacks a selfie camera, and rear-facing camera is not what you would expect from a Nokia. This is probably a phone more dedicated to social players than photo maniacs. Display is disappointing too

Lumia 635 review: Could this be the low-priced future of Windows Phone?

 

Two weeks ago, we would have written the Lumia 635 off as a middling device you'd probably pass over. After the last week's events, it might be the new direction of Windows Phone.

Moderately priced ; Good battery life ; One of the first Windows Phone 8.1 phones

Lacks front-facing "selfie" camera ; Included 512 MB of RAM can slow down app loading ; Visible pixels on the phone's 854x480 display

The Lumia 635 from Microsoft is a budget Windows Phone that sacrifices some features, but generally meets the basic requirements of a modern smartphone.

Nokia Lumia 635 Review

 

The Nokia Lumia 635 takes everything that made the Nokia Lumia 520 a winner and gives it a boost. It remains one of the cheapest Windows Phone 8 devices, now coming with Windows Phone 8.1 and the newest Nokia software, along with a look and feel that...

Nokia – or Microsoft, as the future would have it – has another winner on their hands on the low end. If the same distribution is used as the Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia Lumia 521, I see no reason why the Nokia Lumia 635 shouldn’t have similar success.

Nokia Lumia 635 review:

 

The Nokia Lumia 630 earned itself some stars thanks to its affordable price and vibrant, fun interchangeable plastic back cases. It's 3G only however, which lost it a fair few points. Its twin brother, the Lumia 635 is identical in every respect to the...

The Nokia Lumia 635 has an affordable price, its interchangeable cases are colourful and attractive and it has 4G LTE.

Adding 4G LTE has meant the battery life has taken a hit, its screen resolution is unimpressive and its camera isn't really up to anything more than the odd Instagram snap.

With its fun design and cheap price, the Lumia 635 is a decent option to consider if you're after 4G LTE on a budget. It's only marginally more expensive than its near-identical 3G-only Lumia 630 sibling, so you should certainly opt for the 635. If you...

Nokia Lumia 635 Review

 

Brand new Windows Phones have been generally in short supply of late, so we bet that many of you folks are itching to know when they're coming. Well, the wait is no more here in the US, as the Nokia Lumia 635, a slight variant of the Lumia 630 that...

Aggressive, low pricing that makes it a bargain ; New Windows Phone 8.1 features enhances the experience ; Battery life is surprisingly long-lasting ; Excellent call quality

Camera is mediocre ; Performance hitches with gaming ; Low resolution screen shows visible pixilation

Review: Nokia Lumia 635

 

It's not the cheapest Windows Phone you can buy, but it might just be our favorite in the affordable category. Here's why. The Lumia 630 and Lumia 635 were announced by Nokia during the Microsoft Build 2014 keynote. These two smartphones were among the...

Living with entry level, the Lumia 635

 

Microsoft has been releasing new low end Lumias, and while the specs may not be top notch, what happens if you drop your Lumia Icon for a Lumia 635, will you be able to live with a low-end Lumia?
