I have the phone now for 2 weeks. With the transfer app you transfer all info from your old phone easy as can be to this one.
Text input is superb with Word Flow, its amazing and is certainly a selling point!
Camera is ok, battery for my use lasts 5 days (the phone is off during the night) which is very acceptable.
In short a very nice phone that does what it's made for!
Could NOT get my pics from my phone to print them at photo lab. Not even the lady who has been working there for 20 years could accomplish it. I finally sent them to her Samsung phone and she printed them for me. Apparently windows phone are a problem for many customers.
Fantastic phone for my needs. Incredibly stable, excellent as my phone for work with built-in Office and nice integration with OneDrive. Very easy to use OS. Very good battery life. Runs all the apps I need. Cortana is a fantastic help too. I highly recommend it for a mid-range phone, which happens to be inexpensive.
ss, 27 Feb 2015I want to buy this phone plz tell is this phone is good or not i've had it for 2 months, i'm pleased with it, if you don't need front camera or flash light like me, very good phone for its price
ss, 27 Feb 2015I want to buy this phone plz tell is this phone is good or not awesome 🙆 📞 except some of the apps are missing in windows store:/
I just ditched a two month old Nexus 5 because of disgusting battery life and lollipop bugs.
What troubles me is people recommending or comparing this phone to the likes of the Moto G, but fail to mention that a Moto G costs twice what this Lumia does, at least at the time of my purchase. Do I think its worth double the cost? Hardly.
I'm very pleased with the battery life of this phone, the responsiveness of the OS and the general ease of use.
There are downsides such as screen resolution and camera but I must remind myself that for the price, it has a very high quality low res screen and a very good 5mp camera!
Before buying this Lumia I also tested another budget android with a reported excellent battery life, the xperia e3. Similar specs all around but still generally lower quality than the Lumia, and more importantly $75 more. Just not worth it.
On the app front I have to say I don't see the same "app gap" that a lot of reviewers mention. My phone is filled with all the same apps I used on android, and a ton of top quality games I will never have the time to play!
I do believe some of the specialized "fringe" apps are missing, most likely to be noticed by the type of people who spend their lives reviewing and discussing cell phones. I'm not left wanting.
Overall I'm pleased with my purchase. I'm confident this phone will last me until my hardware upgrades comes up, and I'll likely be getting another Windows phone!
Works pretty awesome, was cheap as hell too for a smart phone with stats that are seemingly on par with even an iPhone 6 since they didn't upgrade to 2 gig ram when moving up from the iPhone 5S, but I don't know all too much about that kinda stuff. Love how easily it is to slap new ringtones and mess around with the settings, the connectivity with my Surface Pro 2 is also pretty neat but I haven't delved into that much yet.
no light sensor.nokia lumia 630 635 638 and 640 sucks phone.lumia 625 730 735 830 930 1020 1320 1520 the best phone.
i have just got the nokia lumia 635. what a great mobile. no front camera but i dont take many pictures. it works great if you use windows.
i use it for work. what can i say but i love the phone.
if you take a lot of pictures it wont be the right phone for you.
6 months after having a 635 (55 eur tied with Movistar), I think I could make a proper review.
No front camera..... I don't make selfies or skype. For me it's OK.
No flash...... Even with flash I haven't got any phone to do night pictures. For me it's OK.
No light sensor.... But it has a good three position switch. I don't need it. Most of us would put this position to "High" forever. I put it into "Medium" to save battery and sometimes (direct sunlight), I raise into "High". No problem.
No proximity sensor.... Maybe a problem, but Nokia/MS has a good workaround. When you are calling or simply put two fingers in the top of the phone, screen freezes so no problem.
512MB..... Maybe a future problem with Windows 10. In Windows 8.1 Denim, it's very fluent.
Screen fingerprints. This is a real problem Microsoft!!! Smudges and fingerprints over the screen.... Always have a cleaning cloth with you....
Gorgeous Snapdragon 400, the same as in 730/830 but with 80% discount. Very very fast.
Size and weight, almost perfect, thin and clean.
Battery life. More than a day gaming, texting and surfing. Awesome. If you look endurance rating in gsmarena, only phablets with 3500 mAh could chase it.
Elegance. It's a different phone, and it's beautiful (subjective position).
128GB SD Card. Now it's very expensive, but in the future... How many songs, books, pictures, etc. could fit in this little marvel?
Clearblack. Absolutely fabulous. Screen looks shiny.
4G/LTE. Web and tethering modem at the speed of light.
I had a Lumia 820, and although his 1GB RAM, Glance, Flash, etc. it is no rival for the cheap and dirty 635.
I also had a Moto G and an iPhone 4S, but.... Android doesn't fit with my interface experience (no unified GUI experience) and the iPhone 4S after iOS 8 is simply crap.
And now with 1GB instead 512MB only could say: If you care your pocket, buy it, it will not deceive you.
I hope Microsoft could make phones with less restrictions but so
WH168, 17 Feb 2015The product manager of this phone has to be hung. This phone tried to save every penny to ruin... morei've been owning this phone for few months and it's working well, the phone does what it say it can do, it's not like you buy this phone and then find out it has no front camera or flash
we have got all types of phones with different tastes of people,535 has got everything but the processor is not powerful enough, so i would suggest if you are looking for selfie, camera with flash and bigger screen go for it, but if you are a gamer its interesting that even if 635 has only 512 mb ram and will not play 1 gb ram games, there are games which require a good processor as well, for example....you can try for yourself, try downloading game "dragon mania legends"in 535, it will not open up but opens and plays good in 635.....so to conclude, 635 is not such a bad phone, thought it lacks, sensors, flash and front camera.
The product manager of this phone has to be hung. This phone tried to save every penny to ruin the user experience. No LED flash, no proximity sensor. If you are on Skype you cannot hang up because it's sensing the pressure to turn off the screen!! Do not buy this phone, I'd rather throw this thing into garbage.
