  • Great phone that sends short texts

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    The only thing I don't love about my Nokia Lumia 635 is the 160-character limit for outbound texts, which I find needlessly annoying. The phone can receive longer messages (as one long message) but apparently there is no way to enlarge the message length for texts I send; AT&T and Microsoft tech support couldn't find a way either. To help users keep from inadvertently blowing up their friends' phones with a dozen texts at once (by sending a long msg that breaks up into multiple 160-char. texts), there's a handy character counter at bottom right of the msg-entry box. It alerts as I near 160, then shows how many individual texts my msg will be broken into. Most of my friends have phones that allow longer messages. ::sigh::

    My phone is awesome and love it. The only thing that bothers me is that this phone doesn't have flash player. So I can't watch certain things. I found that pretty weird. If I had flash player then this phone would be absolutely perfect.

    This has got to be the most awful product I have ever had the displeasure of trying to use. I'm a first time user, I'll admit I'm not tech-savvy, but I do have a basic knowledge of how some of today's technology works. All the advertisements you hear are extremely over exaggerated! One of the most if not the most complicated fones (phone) ever to program. It is my belife that most if not all of the positive comments are employees of or have some direct connection to the makers and producers of this product. Ironically, one of the questions of the survey is how do you use your fone, business/personal......I don't! The darn thing doesn't allow me do do anything other than answer and make calls along with texting which I really don't like to do.

    Best phone I've had so far, much more preferred than others that I've had before such as iPhones, androids and blackberry. I also love how we can play Pokemon, ps1 games such as crash bandicoot, and other various console games.

    I purchased this phone online from Cricket wireless. The cost was $75 with a $75 rebate which made it free. I have always used Android phones so this was my first experience with Windows phone. Overall I really like it. There are something's that I still find android's superior in, such as app selection. I think the windows phone hit a homerun with Cortana, it works great. The battery life on this phone is also very good. I plan on sticking with windows phone for awhile and may even upgrade to the Lumina 640 or 640xl when it's released. The 635 is a very nice phone for the price and paired with Crickets service and rebate offer is a no brainer.

    I really like the lumia 635 because I can sync things pretty easy from my old phone. Even though there aren't as many apps on the windows store as there are on android, most of them are there and it is fast on the internet and doesn't lag during normal use. It stream video on YouTube and Netflix really well. It can even scan QR codes whereas my old android couldn't!!! Overall a great phone, I recommend it.

    I'm 13 and I just got my Nokia Lumia 635 a couple of days ago. It's defiantly a downgrade, coming from a Samsung Galaxy 2. I loved that phone, but it was time for a new one. When I first got this phone, I was greatly disappointed. Almost none of the games that I had on my Galaxy were available on my Nokia. Me being a 13 year old girl, that upset me. A lot. For me, games have a large part in a phone. When I noticed the lack of a front camera, I was besides myself. I'm not one who takes 39 selfies in the bathroom, or anywhere for that matter. I'm just not a selfie person, but a front camera is great for a lot of other things, even the occasional selfie. The fact that the back of the phone is also a case-type thing was also very different. For the most part, this is a good phone, but if your into games and selfies, I wouldn't recommend it.

  • Durable phone so far, Battery life is good, Apps not so great.

    I have yet to find a music app that works well or that places the music onto my phone and not stored on the app. Also there are a lot of apps that are not on here (like snapchat) some apps are named differently. so it's hard to find things. If you like the smart phone layout (iphone/galaxy) then i don't suggest switching to this. It's not a horrible phone. I like the text even though i have to use Swipe because the letters are too small and there is no predictive text. I have also gotten used to having all the apps pinned to my background which i wasn't happy about at first. Battery life is longer than a galaxy and it is more durable. the backing plays as a type of hard case to protect it. There is no front faced camera either.
