Nokia Lumia 635 review

 

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

Nokia'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.

This 4G version of the Lumia 635 is a good value Windows phone, but a brighter screen means less battery life than its 3G counterpart

One of the cheapest 4G phones landing this year

Half-decent autofocus camera, Has 4G

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...

The new Nokia Lumia 635 undercuts the Motorola Moto G 4G on price, but does it offer as much bang for your buck?In case you pulled a double-take when you first put eyes on the Lumia 635, that may be because,…

Affordable 4G option ; Strong feature set for business users ; Colourful design ; Easy-to-use operating system

  (Rating Hidden)

The Nokia Lumia 635 is an affordable smartphone with a 5Mp camera. We like the fact that you can expand the onboard storage. But is it quick enough for browsing the internet? And what's the call quality like? We ran it through our tough tests to find out.

Nokia Lumia 635 review

 

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 Lumia 635

 

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...

The only 4G smartphone in its $279 price range worth buying

Well built ; 4G connectivity ; Competitively priced ; Windows Phone 8.1

Low resolution screen and camera

The beauty of the Lumia 635 is someone with a flagship smartphone could pick this little Nokia up and still have all their needs met. The screen and camera idle at mediocre, but between the quad-core CPU and the rich Windows Phone 8.1 software, this...
