Rated 4 out of 5 by Runner78Runner right phone at the right price
Had this phone a week. Was using iPhone. Overall this is a better phone. The battery life is way better. I listen to downloaded music about 6hrs a day. At the end of the day I still had over half my battery. The free music downloads are excellent and the battery life trumps iPhone.
The downside is no front facing camera. I Skype or facetime with a lot of family not in my area so I miss that. It processes a little slower than iPhone but not enough to be an issue. The expandable storage is great! I currently have a 32GB card in it and may expand to 64 soon.
Stupid but I do miss emjoicons.
While the app store is smaller than windows or iPhone I've found the apps are more useful. Besides do we really need 50 varients of a single app?
I think Nokia could corner more of the market if they:
Keep the phone around the same size and add a front facing camera.
Keep the expandable storage option.
Get an 8.1 camera for the rear.
This phone is a great budget phone. I had the Lumia icon for a bit bit switched carriers. That phone out performed my iPhone by a mile!!

This phone has impressed me beyond belief. It's so easy to use and has no issues oh and Cortana is so extremely amazing. Use the phone once and fall in love ❤ . I had always been a Android person until I tried this phone no regrets at all. It's a smart purchase that you can't go wrong with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Georgia2014 Love the Lumina 635
I wanted a smaller form factor without losing functionality. I have had the 1020, 925, and the 520 (as a backup phone). the 1020 is a great device, but I really wanted 8.1 NOW and smaller device. LOVE the 635 -- CORTANA makes everything easier (impressive response, impressive actions -- all around impressive), the wordflow technology is sooooo cool and makes typing or texting so much easier (I even tested it against the Android version out today -- Windows 8.1 wordflow is TOP NOTCH); and no 2 year contract. Migrating my apps, data, accounts, etc. was a BREEZE from the 1020! LOVE IT! The things I would love to see in this similar form factor (and willing to pay for it) -- front facing camera (don't get me wrong, the Nokia camera at 5 mps is still way more than enough#, and perhaps more selection on the 'skins' -- neon colors are great #green, yellow, and orange#, but would love other varieties. I think I will use this phone for a while! :) LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Link475 A big leap from the 521
I bought this phone recently and I have to say I'm impressed! The new interface is pretty awesome and I like how Cortana keeps me up with my routine. It's an overall great phone and I would recommend it if you're looking to not spend much money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by patty71 Excellent nt phone
I was a little skeptical about buying this phone been an Apple fan for a long time.
I bought it because the price was very affordable. I had heard good and bad things about this phone but I decided to give it a try and I am glad I did.
This phone is very easy to use and fast. The only thing I wish it had is front facing camera.
I think I will be keeping this phone for a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex96 This phone is great!!!
I've only had tho phone for about a day now and ill be honest I love it already. It's so easy to use and the battery life I great! Also other people complain about it not having a flash or front camera. All I have to say about that is your spending $99 on a phone its not gunna have all that for this cheap. Honestly you probably wont need the flash anyways this phone takes great pictures without it plus you can enhance them anyways if need be. This is my first windows phone and honestly I give it a 10 out of 10 rating I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a new phone at at&t and t-mobile.

Rated 4 out of 5 Great device for the money.
Personally, I am all about high-end devices (I use L1020). I purchased the 635 for my daughter. For $99.00 off the self it's a great entry level device for the price. It's quick, smooth and feels good to hold. The expandable memory is great and works flawlessly (should be on ALL Lumias). I have all the apps downloading directly to the SD card.
The 635 is actually more durable than I expected. My daughter dropped it, the case, battery and screen all went in different directions, no damage what's so ever.
The OS is a breath of fresh air. You loose virtually nothing the OS has to offer with the 635. It's extremely easy to use. Everything is in settings. When first setup a text is sent to you to help you get started. There is also the Lumia helps + tips app with an abundance of information. It's so easy my 6 yr old, going on 7, I purchased the device for uses it with ease. It's a great device for her because I pinned her mother's contact tile with image & mine to the start screen. Its setup with a child account also which is nice. Hardware wise there is no flash or front facing camera. This is an entry level device strictly to keep people connected with a powerful OS and personal assistant for a low cost, really low cost. If you're on the fence about WP buy this device to try it out for a month. What you get for the money the Lumia 635 "will" impress you.
