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

Ratings in depth The Nokia Lumia 635 adds a sprinkling of 4G magic and external bling to the impressively solid and ultra-affordable Nokia Lumia 630. It makes a positive first impression but is its existence strictly necessary?

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

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...
