    Easy to understand and operate. Cortana makes forgetting things a thing of the past. In my opinion this is the best phone on the market.

    Coming from a Lumia 1520 to this. Had to switch to sprint and this was all they had. Only complaint is the size difference, lack of front camera, and bigger capacitive buttons (arrow, home, search)

  • Needs More Apps/Update Kik App!!!

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    When I got my Lumia 635, I was skeptical of it becuase of the bad reviews I heard about the Windows Phone brand. I like the display and the customization. The battery power is average, since I don't use my phone like that. However, it would help if the Windows Phone Store work on turning some apps from Beta version like Instagram. It would also help if apps like Kik gets an update. The overall beauty of the phone blows my expectations and the camera is phenomenal but it is confusing which camera app to use since there are like 2 or 3 apps to choose from. The feel is different since I am used to iOS and Android platforms. Cortana is a big help and in my opinion is better than Siri. I would suggest having a iPod or a tablet so you can still use some apps that Windows doesn't quite have yet. Overall, the phone is a good phone with nice features.

    My. First ever smart phone. That is also a Windows phone. Very good experience. But some features are found missing. Storage capacity should be more.

    This is my first real smart phone and it feels natural. If you are a Windows 8 user then using a Windows phone should be no problem. Setting it up was relatively easy. Having a few problems getting the phone app to work on the desktop but not really an issue. Cortana is great and the speech to text is superb. Especially for those of with fat fingers. Just wish we could customize Cortana more. Changer her name, adjust the tone of the voice and the like. I do not give out 5 stars on most reviews so 4 is my highest rating unless the product is spectacular. This one is good and nearly close to spectacular.

    I experienced more than a few Lumia's and will continue to try other Microsoft or Lumia devices. This Lumia 635 was my introduction to Cortana windows 8.1. I was very surprised with the phone performance for a low price and, Cortana was a excellent idea. The U.I is consistently fast and, user friendly. I enjoy my 5mpx camera but, would suggest a flash for rear cameras on all devices. A front camera would have made this my flagship Lumia. The battery life is good, call quality is excellent, display is satisfactory and, I love my option of changing the shell and the SD memory expansion. I find the on board memory great because we can save apps to SD and, we do have cloud storage for docs and pics. It's pretty easy to manage memory. Out of all the Lumia devices I've owned;900, 520, 521 and 925, I enjoy this one the most. I feel that I got a better 521 in which, was my motivator towards returning to Windowsphone.

    Wow, I love this phone! I've had iPhones for 3 years and Androids for 4 years but I had never really considered Windows Phones... I always grouped them with Blackberries as the odd man out. I was wrong! I picked up this Lumia 635 and it's like a breath of fresh air. Gives me lots of customization options but doesn't require me to micro manage like Android does. All the other phones seen so bland now, lol. I can't believe that you can get as fast and fluid a phone for this low price. You saved me about $900 on the phone I was going to buy. You've got a new fan Microsoft, well done! :)

    We chose the phone because we have 2 laptops that run windows 8.1 and having a phone that can pass data easily between machines would be a plus. However, lately the phones battery life is less than 1/2 a day and Cortina-mocrosofts siri- has taken over the phone and left it parylized. The phone runs warm and I cant seem to stop that feature other than to shut down the speaker. Hopefully I can get some help from some foreum because T-Mobile folks seem only to know android or i-phones

    My midrange android phone was lagging so I was preparing to invest in a high-end device. The buzz around Windows Phone caught my attention so a grabbed a Lumia 635 for about $50. By far the best $50 I've put into any portable tech. Now I'm waiting to see the flagship Windows Phones to be announced later this year. Looking forward to upgrading to a new Lumia with a near-6-inch screen, great cameras, and Office 365. Keep up the great work Microsoft!

    I've had this through at&t for a while and have no complaints. I found that if you install the PC app on your computer there are many more options for the phone as far as personalization and custom abilities to add to the phone. I have had a few friends switch to this phone as well. Although I'm waiting for the 640xl I can't complain about my phone now.

    I just have to say out of the 2 older phones before this one, (This one beats them so much!) This is the best phone I've ever had so far. Since I've gotten this, It's really easy to use, I mean I had no manual to look at to learn all this "New Stuff" For some reason My phone box never had a manual. I learned all these new things just by playing with the phone and getting use to it. I was worried at first a lot, Because I don't do well on learning new things it takes me longer to understand and remember and learn new stuff. But this was so easy! I even thought that the "On Screen Keybored" Would be a problem for me because I've always had a full keyboard on my other phones, But this was easy to use for an "On screen keyboard" And in saying so, "I thought it was better then the samsung galaxy s4, Which a friend of ours has" I've also come to like having all the features it has and what it can do. This was a good choice for me, I even got a "Trade in Vaule with on my old Basic phone" I think this is an awesome phone!

    I like the phone overall, the only flaws I have are the incoming text messages have the wrong time. It be 5hrs before the actual time. You can't send multimedia messages at the same time, it has to be one pic at a time and it doesn't have as many apps as android

    I recommend this phone to every body I meet. Just for $100 and with only 500MB of RAM this phone perform exceptionally. Never had a problem or a crash and still as fluid as the day I bought it. If Microsoft keeps Windows performing like this the future is only bright for the Lumia and Windows Phone.
