    This phone has a lot of glitches like when I'm on a website trying to read and it will exit out of what I'm doing and go back to the main screen. I have had to replace once because of the port being loose and now its corroded and was told it had "water damage" even though it has been no where near any water. I do not recommend this and after it's paid off I am switching to an IPhone.

  • The worse keyboard ever.

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    Keyboard design is awful. Easy to make mistakes hard to rectify. No back button. Took awhile to figure out how to use the stupid correction bubbles. Rather juvenile. Also, none of the functions are simple. Have to go thru multiple steps to access EVERYTHING including making a simple phone call. If you like things simple this is NOT the phone for you.

    Great phone! Has windows office right on it in case you need to make a power point or document on the go! It's durable! Mine fell into a pot of cooking oil while changing my deep fryer sat in it for an hour before I found it , I was scared it was d.o a but its been three days and is still fully functional. I was freaked out that it wouldn't work since I had it only a week.

    I am not sure how the largest software company in the world can make so many mistakes. They need to go to APPLE University and learn how it is done. I am going back to my apple products.

    This phone irritates the heck out of me. It restarts and crashes all the time, apps freeze quite often, and my data and internet aren't working with my phone. This was a great phone at first, but it deteriorated very quickly.

    My phone is always acting up. Whenever it glitches I turns off by itself and on. Sometimes when I am on the internet it, the screen will start to blink white and soon the screw completely goes black along with the home button. There are so many different problems I have. The app store is terrible. Instagram is still a beta, there is no snap chat (which disappoints me), and there are so many bootleg apps. I can never get a good app. It can not even compare to apple or Android.

  • A "real" Nokia

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    My Lumia 635 replaced a dearly beloved, but failing, iPhone 4S. I needed a stand-in until my next upgrade, and I didn't want another Android, so I crossed my fingers, got $45, and bought the Lumia. Now, nearly five months later, I'm mostly satisfied with my decision. Beyond the camera, which is only OK, the Lumia 635 has proven to be a great little communicator (call quality is great - some of the clearest calls I've had on a phone#, media device #Xbox-related apps, though basic, work well#, and tool #calendar and e-mail clients are nice#. Display quality and battery life are good, too. You could say that Windows Phone is the reason why I don't speak of the Lumia more highly, and you can probably guess why #hints: small, low-quality app store, lack of features, poor memory management/frequent app "resumes"#, so I won't delve further into that. I say that the Lumia 635 is a simple, dependable, and affordable smartphone that does itself #and the now largely dormant Nokia brand# proud, and I'm happy to have one.

    I actually downgraded from a Lumia 830 for this one because my other phone couldn't handle wifi calling but the 635 can. I don't do "selfies" so I don't miss the front-facing camera that the 635 doesn't have. What amazed me is that the 635, with no flash, takes better pictures than my pricier 830 did. I can take photos in near-darkness, and have taken pictures of the moon and even bright stars that even friends with iPhones and high-end Androids couldn't capture. The built-in FM radio is a definite plus! This is a perfect phone for first-time smartphone users.

    I really like this phone mostly because of its price, really great for those who live with strict budget's, but it has its fallback's such as the app store is pretty much garbage, having most app such as facebook, and twitter so far out of date its not even worth it, and it also has a unforgivable error when use the internet, it will periodically black out and the only way to get it back to normal is to hit the back button a thousand times or you have to remove the battery. Its terrible D:

    I bought this phone from boost. After about a month speaker went out and was unable to hear phone ring. Got a second from a friend and after three days power button and charge port stop working. Phone is very cheaply made. Very few apps compared to Android. What apps I did find work sporadically. Unhappy that I now have to purchase third phone in three months just to be able to have a way to call doctor. This is worst phone even if free.

    I was amazed by how well this phone worked after upgrading from my Lumia 520! Even in places where I would not get service I had incredible service and it was all LTE at that. And as a hotspot for internet access it works amazing for my Playstation 3. LTE service that did not lag playing Defiance or Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. GREAT PHONE EVERYONE!!!

    While I'm not the most tech savvy, gotta-have-the-latest-iphone-smartwatch-hoohah, I can appreciate quality. The 635 is just that. I moved from an aging iPhone 4 (which still works) to this phone. I didn't use apps too much, so that wasn't a big deal for me. The one thing that no one seemed to touch on with the Lumia 635 is the call quality. Many people don't make calls anymore, and that's disheartening, but this phone puts that away and you can actually hear the person loudly. I repeat, LOUDLY. I had to shove the darn iPhone 4 into my ear until it hit my brain to make sure I could hear the person. This phone is so fast, and I want to commend Microsoft for this. You took a basic set of components, worked with it, and made one of the fastest phone operating systems to date! In speed, this phone has beaten my moms iPhone 6+. $50>$899 Pros: Light Thin Not hard to hold Buttons are in a good place Call quality is top notch Cons: Not the best buiild, but it's $50. (iPhones are built worse now, heh) This was the AT&T model, which is not built as well as the T-Mobile model. Camera isn't the best, but it's a heck of a lot better than any competitors similar priced phones. No flash, but no problem. I carry a flashlight with me, anyways. I am infatuated with Windows phone. It gives me new technology at affordable prices, and has taught me that technology isn't worth hundreds of dollars. Thank you, Microsoft. I love ya. Keep doin' what you're doin'. I'd like to add that I've had the phone since the end of January, so 7 months with it. Looked back once or twice, but realized how much I love Windows phone.

  • One of the best Lumias around that satisfies all your Office and Social networking needs

    Overall Rating
    ★★★★★ ★★★★★

    This was my 3rd Lumia (Lumia 635) an office phone though I have my personal 2 Lumias (535 + 435) purchased due to my interest and for keeping my compatibility and simplicity with both Office and Personal things to do with my phones. Except that 635 lacks a front camera and the automatic brightness is not available, the phone is very good in terms of design, weight, grip and all full functionality of robust Windows 8.1. My previous office phone was Lumia 625 and it too was an excellent phone. Lumia 635 has 1" smaller screen compared to 625 but the pixel density seems to deliver a greater experience compared to 625 as on 625 the 4" resolution has been expanded to 4.7". For the price of Lumia 635, the job it does is too overwhelming compared to the other smartphones in the market.
