    I love the layout, the design, the features, in fact I love everything about it. I purchased it a few months back in the colour orange after my friend recommended Nokia Lumias to me. I love how I can do my work on the go and keep in contact with friends and family. Its perfect for me and I would definitely recommend it to everyone I know.

    The 635 is a brilliant entry level phone, easy to use,and has everything i want and need from it. I have moved over from my iphone to the Nokia Lumia 635 and cant believe the difference its amazing so look out iphone here comes Nokia again, easier to use and just as versatile and a a lot cheaper

    Hi I have a Nokia Lumia 635 for work. It works fairly well - although I resent all the "it runs Windows" crud I have had, because this is nothing like Windows on a laptop. Lots of software - Microsoft stuff is mainly loaded by default, but not Adobe reader as various other complementary add ons. Skype for a phone without dual cameras isn't much use for video..... Since this is a work phone a key app is Outlook - but it has various shortcomings. - how come my old Blackberry with less than half the screen space let me see more emails in a summary view (this seems to be wasteful formatting, which is common across apps - maybe inherited from PCs?) - I dont like that the app insists on a max of 2 weeks emails on phone either. So - not bad - but could be a lot better. It feels like 1 of the poorer Microsoft versions - but so is Win8.x on a laptop......

    good phone that could be better, if microsoft would actually get round to sorting out there slow updating system and update software to denim (as advertised!) so that cortana would work correctly in UK . Apart from that it performs well but could have done with a bit more memory and a led flash and slightly better camera would have been good ..but you get what you pay for and to be honest at the price its pretty worth it. if you are after the slightly better features spend more and get 735..- summary - really good phone for price that hopefully will be better when upgrade finaly arrives.

    As a BT customer I set out to buy a smartphone so that I could download the app BTsmarttalk. After researching the features I eventually bought the Lumia 635 only then to find that Microsoft do not enable this app to be downloaded .. or should I blame BT? As it is I am annoyed that there seems no advice about this omission and I feel I have wasted my money. Otherwise the model is fair if a bit complicated even though I am otherwise using Windows 8.1 elsewhere.

    This is my second Windows Phone, replacing my WP7 I bought some years ago. My 635 has a dual-sim, which I am looking to make use of on my next overseas trip. The phone is much quicker than I anticipated when purchased, although the camera is slow to start. The battery life also exceeds my expectations, which is really great. Overall, an excellent phone!

    The Lumia 635 is a lovely handset, it's stylish and very easy to use. The initial setup is a bit tricky bit after a day its a doddle. The battery life is amazing for a smartphone lasting days on standby. The only things that could make this phone better would be more internal storage space and double the RAM

    I got my Nokia 635 from EE I bought it on offer for only £50.00 plus 20.00 call time minimum , I liked it do much they let me buy a second one for £35.00 yes I'm not joking £35.00 i got it as a spare phone while my iphone got repaired a soon found it did most things better such as (and most importantly # call quality it filters out background noise, and the signal is way, way better, texts are easier to send and you get a delivery report to non iPhones, it remembers all my passwords #iphone only remembered a few, very few even though its supposed to remember them all) Cortana is very useful and better than silly siri , it has data saving settings that are very smart and customisable, and battery saving settings, it has a removable plastic back cover so if it gets scratched you can just bin it or if you want you can get a different colour, the buttons are built into the back cover. It also has a removable battery , the iphone doesn't so when your battery is at the end of its life you can get another or you could have a spare charged and just change them over if away from a charging point for a long time if say camping . It also has space for an SD card to expand the memory. Plus the front screen is fully customisable for example I have tiles that have contacts photos on and just press a picture of that person to dial or text them and I have apps and websites as tiles on the main menu some tiles can be set to provide constant updates of a particular app for example face book or ebay. Everything is fully customisable it doesn't get much better than this.

    I completely agree with robbers who has reviewed the phone further down the page. I too was sceptical about a windows phone but decided to try one this size. For the price this phone is remarkable and is faster than my S5 mini. The only negative thing about it is that it does not have Cortana yet in the UK but hopefully the update to the software will come very soon. I wold highly recommend this phone to all.

    Ok so this phone doesn't have a gyroscope, a front facing camera or a flash. Take that away from the review and it's a fairly decent phone. It's a Nokia, so durability and ease of use comes as standard. More apps are added daily to the app store (More needed though) Denim Update is in the process of being dropped on to the Lumia phones. It's just an all round great phone. The screen is bright, the sound is phenomenal, the touch response is the best I've come across on a phone!

    I got this phone about a month ago and it has surpassed all of my expectations. Despite what people say about there being "no apps for Windows", I was surprised to see all of my favourite apps like Instagram, Spotify and WhatsApp in the store. This phone is also great for work. I am able to connect my Exchange email and Lync accounts with ease, which no other phone has been able to do for me. Well done Microsoft!!

    I love the ease and use of my Lumia, in the downside no app or availability for me to watch my films on ultraviolet. My music also keeps saying that it wants to be updated but sadly won't update. The phone itself is easy to use and makes more sense to use rather than apple. Just wish I could get my movies on the device and the music sorted all in all not a bad phone.

    Nokia 635 Cannot connect to a Microsoft Window 7 PC to browse the filing system. Cannot sync to Microsoft outlook (my old E90 work seamlessly) WiFi connection does not stay on preferred connection. No USB connection lead supplied, as WiFi and Bluetooth cannot connect to a PC Error messages written saying App missing, no clue of what App is missing. Cannot connect, no response why. Can browse WiFi connections. As an Ex Nokia/Symbian employee, looks like I have to buggy Android phone, as at least it can connect to a Windows PC
