Using this phone since 2016, moderate user, no issues at all, still working as new.
Still using a Nokia Lumia 635 in 2018. Works fine, even with Windows 10 (1511) in a 512K phone. Yes, it was a hack - upgraded during the brief period when it was possible via Windows Insider. Still on the original battery, too. I wish I could find as well-built and -supported Android phone to replace it now that all support (except the Jan.2018 security fix) has ended for W10/1511 - but the upgrade did get me almost an extra year of support over 8.1 Cyan (the last officially supported Windows on the T-Mobile phone). Even mid-grade Androids have serious downchecks, and cheap ones well-deserve the "cheap" moniker. The 635 wasn't cheap; it was inexpensive.
im pissed, 24 Feb 2017Worst phone. It's so ancient I really don't know why its still being made. Don't buy this not ... moreMaybe people actually go on cool adventures rather than sitting on social media all day
For such a cheap phone, the Nokia 635 is surprisingly decent. I have used mine since December of 2014, and it's served me well for nearly three years. The thing's about as durable as the rocks I've dropped it on numerous times, and I like the OS. In short, the phone itself is excellent. The main problem lies in the support- the phone is no longer updated, and the app store is pretty barren. That's the main reason that I'm switching to an iPhone next month. If you care at all about apps, this isn't a good choice. If you're looking for an inexpensive phone that can do just about anything else a smartphone should be able to do, it is.

I have had this Nokia Lumia 635 fone since April 2015 and it's kinda worked pretty well, but now I cannot even get to any apps on my front screen it keeps flipping back to the front anyone have any idea to fix this?.
Me, 21 Aug 2017Yeah me too have the same problemThat's just one of the many problems I've been having in the past few months! I got it in Feb 2016 & loved it at first (but I now think that was due more to my inexperience with smartphones than to it being a good phone!) but now my apps keep crashing, webpages either won't load at all or it only loads part of the page or it takes several minutes to load; the home screen keeps freezing; battery needs charging 2-4 times a day blah blah blah..! So, I'm saving up for a new phone - just hope this phone survives the few weeks it'll take for me to get the money for the phone I've set my heart on - which wouldn't be a Windows phone even if they were still on sale in UK shops!!

But the phone was neat and organized.im currently trading to and iPhone 6+ after saving up enough money its a good part time phone
I had this phone for about 6 months I got it at a pawnshop when I needed a phone right away. Paid 60 bucks for it and was very surprised, my mom has a Windows 7 phone before and it was HORRIBLE. I expected this to be the same. But it was surprisingly decent. I actually liked the layout and thought for the price it had decent features and worked retativly well. Yea the windows app store is NOWHERE near like Apple or Google but it's there and even t hi apps lack features they are EXTREMELY small in MB which is nice. I was able to screencast to my tv (even tho after a little while it always crashed). Pretty much it ran pretty good, I have been an iphone guy all my life I stood in line for 8 hours for the first iphone but it my last iPhone broke and was waiting dfor the next wow phone and needed something for meantime. This phone runs MUCH MUCH MUCH better then a low end android PERIOD. I moved to an S8+ now. I have used many many androids but unless they are mid-flagship models. All the low end ones are horrible. So if u have a choice between low end android or this windows phone take the windows phone.
HORRIBLE product. The phone is awesome.... WHEN it works. Going on phone #3, in 8 months. Same problem, every time. Phone starts acting weird, won't power down,wont power back on, tiles disappear. Phone will ring, email/text alert, but can't get the screen to light up to answer calls/email/text.
THREE PHONES, 8 MONTHS... SAME problem. Good luck getting any help from Microsoft/Nokia/At&t. This is clearly a manufacturers defect, but Microsoft offers little to no help.... IF you can even get thru, before being disconnected.
Worst phone. It's so ancient I really don't know why its still being made. Don't buy this not worth it unless you're a boring person who doesn't like social media.
Ive had this phone for over a year and recently ive noticed when your doing somethink either on facebook or google it boots me off quite alot and takes me back to the nokia screen, it wasn't a problem at first but it reoccurring quite regularly, does anyone else have this problem, is it just my phone or this phone in General, other than this problem I actually quite like this phone

I've had my Nokia Lumia 635 for over a year now, and it has been a pretty decent phone for the price. However, I 've noticed glitches when it comes to the certain apps, especially with facebook and instagram. It has never happened before, but within the past several months, it has cut off when in use of the app.
I don't enjoy this phone that much.It tends to glitch a lot.When I'm browsing on internet explorer it malfunctions and takes me back to the home page.The fins thing is that it blacks out time to time
