Thrifty, Yet Nifty

 

The Nokia Lumia 635 is among the first wave of handsets to launch with the latest update of Windows Phone 8.1 software out of the box. At only $130 or less, it's one of the best options for low-priced 4G phones.

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

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

15.

Fast and cheap

Windows Phone 8.1 is improvement ; Strong build quality ; 4G capable

No flash or front camera ; 4G price bump not such great value ; Screen lacks sharpness

The Nokia Lumia 635 is nigh-on identical to the Nokia Lumia 630, only with the addition of 4G connectivity. But the resultant bump up in price carries things in the wrong direction.

One of the cheapest 4G phones landing this year

The Lumia 635 isn’t going to dazzle you with its specs, but its bright colours will surely catch your eye. More importantly, if this manages to be among the cheapest 4G phones of the year, it’ll be an important factor in getting us all connected with...

Following hot on the heels of the Lumia 630 we have yet anotherDay-Glo coloured budget phone from Nokia. The Lumia 635 adds 4G toa decent device and range of extras from Nokia and Microsoft.

Decent processor, acceptable camera, Nokia and Windows extras,expandable memory, 4G

Screen could be better, Windows Store still a bit lean

The Nokia Lumia 635 is a solidly built workhorse of a phone thatmay not have an HD screen like the similarly priced Moto G, but does its bit to make up for it with extras likeMicrosoft Office and free online storage, as well as Nokia's musicand sat-nav...

Nokia's currently on a Windows Phone 8.1 roll, unleashing the budget-friendly Lumia 630 back in May, but now the Microsoft-owned company is back again with a updated version of the same handset, the Lumia 635. While on the outset, the £139 handset...

The Nokia Lumia 635 is a slight update to an already well-rounded budget blower that brings 4G powers to the table and a slicker, glossy body too. Even though Windows 8.1 packs in many features we've been craving for ages, it's still playing catch-up...

Just like the Lumia 630 before it, the Nokia Lumia 635 offers you the same solid plastic design. If you're wishing for an iPhone 5c-style handset, but can't quite afford the Apple-tax on top, the 635 will serve you well. Unlike the previous model, the...

Unfortunately, just like the 630, the 635 shares the same drawbacks. As a budget blower, the 4.5-inch screen is considerably lacklustre with just a paltry 854x480 resolution. It's a grainy screen, and it looks especially fuzzy after using higher-res...
