The Lumia 635 is almost identical to the 630, but with the key addition on an LTE radio. While the 630 didn't rise above what Nokia had already achieved with previous budget handsets, the 635 is a much more welcome addition to the range. The only other affordable, 4G device Nokia has to offer is the Lumia 625, launched last year. The handset had a number of flaws -- particularly its large, low-resolution display -- and only just crept into an acceptable price range. It was a missed opportunity after the highly regarded 620 had earned Nokia some cred, and the better-executed Lumia 635 is a great example of what the 625 should have been.
Another interesting feature on the 630 and 635 is SensorCore, which involves low-power health monitoring. Essentially, SensorCore can keep an eye on how many steps you've taken, miles you've walked and calories burned, and it logs the information into the Bing Health and Fitness app.

All I can say is I got this one for $45 at Walmart after I broke my Moto X, and I still don't miss my old phone.
