- 72AVERAGE CRITIC SCORE10 ReviewsWired70Nokia Lumia 635It’s a very basic phone that meets almost all the requirements of a modern smartphone user (reminder: NO front-facing camera). But the 625′s 4G capabilities and its low price make it something more than just another satisfactory phone. They make it a good buy.Computerworld70Deep-dive review: The Lumia 635 smartphone -- a stOverall, the Lumia 635 is an odd mix of hardware cutbacks for affordability with some premium software features thrown in.PC Mag70Nokia Lumia 635 (T-Mobile)The Nokia Lumia 635's style puts it way ahead of other inexpensive smartphones on T-Mobile, although its camera capabilities are seriously lacking.PC World60Lumia 635 review: Could this be the low-priced futThe Lumia 635 from Microsoft is a budget Windows Phone that sacrifices some features, but generally meets the basic requirements of a modern smartphone.CNET70Nokia Lumia 635 review: A vibrant, affordable 4G LWith 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.Engadget80Nokia Lumia 630 review: An affordable phone you can live withoutThe Lumia 635 is a much-needed addition to Nokia's affordable handset range. It has a serviceable camera, fun design and good battery life, but most importantly, it's one of the best value LTE devices out there.Laptop MagazineNot RatedNokia Lumia 635 Hands-On: High-Class Design, Low POverall,we found the Lumia 635 we tested fairly snappy, but the phone’s biggest merits are all on the outside. With an aggressive price, the Lumia 635 could be an attractive, if scaled-down option for budget-minded consumers.EngadgetNot RatedNokia Lumia 630 and 635 bring Windows Phone 8.1 toAnother 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.SlashGear70Nokia Lumia 635 ReviewNokia - or Microsoft, as the future would have it - has another winner on their hands on the low end.Tech Advisor70Nokia Lumia 630 review: an affordable Windows PhonIf you're considering the Lumia 630 as a first smartphone and you don't plan to buy lots of wireless accessories, these limitations might not be an issue. However, if you're switching from Android or an iPhone, you may well be frustrated.Pocket-LintNot RatedNokia Lumia 630/635 pictures and hands-onIn the hand the Nokia Lumia 630/635 feels solid enough. It can't hold a candle to the Lumia 930, but it reminds us very much of the Lumia 520, only larger - and that's a good thing.SlashGearNot RatedLumia 625 vs. Lumia 635: Entry-level Windows PhoneWe've jumped from dual-core to quad-core, and that's nothing to sniff at. But this is still very much an entry-level device, and the battery has actually gotten a bit smaller.phoneArena80Nokia Lumia 635 ReviewLumia 635 is attached with an amazing price point that makes it a bargain however way we dissect it.TechRadar80Fast and cheapNokia's latest budget phone sports 4G and Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box, and benefits from all of the things we liked about the Lumia 630. However, it's not quite enough of an improvement to justify the additional premium.TrustedReviewsNot RatedNokia Lumia 635The 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 super-fast mobile internet.

We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80April 15, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I try to be familiar with all OSes so when Amazon had a flash sale on this model for $30 I took the plunge justifying the purchase as a $30 wifi multimedia device. My previous Windows Phone was the HTC 8xT which run Windows Phone 8.0 so it's been over a year since I've dabbled, this is also my first Lumia. Windows Phone 8.1 is an evolutionary change with minor improvements, most notably the pull down notification area. This is not a review on WP 8.1 so I will move on.The device itself is plastic and glass, for an affordable phone it feels more solid than most that cost hundreds more. The clearblack ips lcd oled display functions just fine especially with how the tiles in WP don't necessarily need the pixel push, 4.5 inches also doesn't seem over gigantic anymore in the world of phablets that we currently live in.The 5mp shooter is grainy and just not very good, this is truly where I paid under $50 for a phone and there is also no front facing camera. That being said, this is the only real issue I have with this phone which is saying alot.The true statement from this phone is that it knows what it isn't. It isn't a flagship, it isn't a phablet, it isn't a processing beast, it isn't for gamers, and it definitely isn't for wanderlusting shutterbugs. If you want a phone that does a little bit of everything right and don't want to be heartbroken or broke if something catastrophic were to happen to it then this is the phone for you.Engadget Reader70March 16, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!For its price, and as long as You are fine with the basics ( calls, sms, Instant Messaging, Basics Video.Music.Streaming Apps, Twitter, and some more) You will be just fine. If you need all the bells and whistles of Android and iOS offerings ( quantity and quality) then better look elsewhere. Apart from that for someone with the basics and a bit more, its a great phone, good size, exceptional battery life and unbeatable priceEngadget Reader80February 12, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!It has good fluency when doing activities such as searching for a business, getting directions, buisness hours and phone numbers.Engadget Reader100January 31, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I am going to preface this review by the next paragraph. I am 58 Years old, been in IT support all my adult life, I was so frustrated with SmartPhones, that I seriously considered moving back to a flip phone.1. This is by far the easiest smart phone I have ever used. Android phones kept crashing, and iOS is to dumbed down. Battery life on either is horrible.2. I had tons of apps on my Android, my wife has tons of apps on her iPhone. I had 5 to 6 screens of apps. Wait, but I only used 4 or 5 apps. So as for the Ecosystem, I really don't care.3. Its a great concept to have a phone that is a camera that is a media player, that is a Personal Computer. But I never use my smart phone like that. I use it as,,,,well a Phone,,,and sometimes search the internet with it.So on to the review. Like I said above, I was just about to go out and dump my Smart Phone for a Flip Phone. Until Microsoft released this phone, and Cricket became part of the AT&T network, and offered up this phone for FREE, with only 40 bucks a month service.The phone itself is like any typical modern Smartphone, i.e. weight and size. Feels good in my hand, but here is where it parts ways with the Typical Modern Smartphone, its a Windows 8.1 Smartphone.WOW, Windows 8.1 is amazing on a phone, I have never been an Apple Boy, to pricy for me. I have used every form of Windows since Windows 3.0. I am used to Windows, and it does what I want it to do. (And guess what, I have never had a virus, smart computing is the reason). But Windows 8.1 is the most user friendly fast OS for a phone I have ever seen. Simple yet elegant. Like I said earlier I basically use the following apps, Slingplayer, Netflix, Browser, and Email. Everyone comments on the lack of apps, well I don't care about that, I have everything I need with Windows 8.1.And being the phone is Windows, it just melts in with the systems I run at home. My primary email is not gmail, it a Microsoft Live account. Setting up this phone was so simple being I am familiar with Windows. iOS is totally different that MAC OS, Android has really no PC platform OS. Everything just felt RIGHT, when I started up the phone. Battery Life, is truly amazing. I could maybe make it 3/4 thru the day, and I would have to plug in my Android. I could make it one day when I put in an extended battery, which doubled the weight of the phone.The 635 easily lasts 2 days. I forgot my phone in the car one night, and it dropped to 10 degrees. Next morning phone power right up.Camera - I use a hi res SLR Camera, I have not even tried to use the camera on this phone.Media Player use. I have used it, it works fine. Both of our vehicles have USB/SD card slots so we primarily use those interfaces.Cost - FREE, can I say more, well yes. Who in their right mind will spend upwards of 400 dollars for a phone, and then pay upwards of 65 dollars a month for service just to have the latest Sexy phone. I don't understand it......its a frickin phone. In closing, if you want a good smartphone, and don't care about all the bells and whistles, this is a great phone for you. But, if you want that Sexy G4 blah blah blah, go ahead and spend that 400 bucks.RobertEngadget Reader100July 16, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I was waiting for the Lumia 930 for 3 months and could not wait any longer. Finally got the Lumia 635, I was really worried about the 512 Ram and only 8GB memory. So far it works really well. And I have just ordered a 16GB sandisk extreme pro microSD for my phone. So the memory issue is resolved.I never use flash on my other Lumias. Don't like the garish effect of flash on photos. So the no flash does not bother me. As for front facing camera, I hardly take selfie, and I make VOIP calls but not video calls. So for me works just fine.For now it's all good. Will hold on to it till December and hopefully there will be a new Flagship Lumia for an upgrade.
