Don't even think about getting a windows phone. Like the phone but the apps are straight crap. You can't download app that Android phones can don't even think about iPhone apps.
I've had my 635 for 2.5 years now. it's been around the world. Getting now to be slow and stutter, even though I am not a big user of apps. Miss a lot of company-specific apps (e.g. banking, airlines, etc) available for iPhone and Android, but not Windows 8.1. Satnav and maps very good (I use the downloaded maps in places like Hong Kong, Ontario, Vietnam, USA, Europe, etc). Phone though now seems very tired. Time now for something newer, preferably Android (wife has iPhone 6, and while nice, don't like the way Apple does things). It has been reliable, no problems (except when I first got it, wouldn't recognise memory card, but was replaced immediately in the store, no questions).
My screen just crashed without dropping it. I put it in my blue jean back pocket to go down to the car. I get on the car then put the phone standing and as I drive out I noticed the crashed screen. I stopped using it because it feels like GLASS and I can feel the glass cutting my fingers. LCD is ok
I have had other phones and I feel this is NOT right. Should I spend money fixing.....it may happen again....or better forget about Nokias..

For a budget phone,I think its not an excuse for them to remove the front camera.
Yeah i agree with the others with the broken internet explorer, websites dont load well in this phone. If the sites don't load,the browser gives up and crashes itself and take you straight to app screen (main menu)
Even I carefully press the previous button when navigating the webpage, takes you two pages back! I had to check history to take me to my recent previous page.
Got this phone last June 2015, so far I'm having problems with random freezing (i had to remove battery), the default internet browser crashes anytime (ecen,store web browsers are trash too, websites get broken).
That one camera captures and records in high quality even it only had a fairly low megapixel.
Battery is really solid for me.
Now with the issues and setbacks, I got the 512mb RAM variant, so I can't upgrade to Win 10.
No video call support too, I'm fine using that one camera at the back but giving us 100% no support/no compatibility for video calling across all apps? Thats terrible.
For a budget phone,I think its not an for them to remove the front camera.
Very limited apps in the store for this particular phone.
Not sure if i can benefit using 4G in this phone since it cannot do livestream/video call. Browser crashes, youtube only loads 480p (4G is overkill here).
But hey this is budget phone what can I say? Just tried this phone but look, there are better phones than this Lumia 635 within the price bracket. Not good budget phone in long run overall. Windows phone OS make this worst.
Bottomline: Good hardware (snapdragon, glonass,4G, corning gorilla,glass) but bad software.
it worked good when I bought it. after some months problems were started, suddenly apps stopped working and time by time all the apps got uninstalled automatically. I( do want to know clearly about this problem please suggest me a good answer.
I've got this phone and works very well.The RAM memory is 1GB.Sometimes, the phone freeze because doesn't has enough internal memory, so you have to back up your media and reboot the operative system. if you make this you solve the problem!
How can I see without opening the box, if the Lumia 635 has 512MB or 1 GB of ram, does anyone know in this forum or does GsmArena know how?
It's a good phone but it's only that I can't receive whatsapp notifications offline
i just update my lumia windows phone 8.1 with the insider program slow buid to window 10 it work great i did not want to wait for boost mobil to release the update they just want us to buy a new windos 10 phone , just update your now now now inside slow build

Also, I saw that the messages were shown at the beginning of the chat, but I still can't figure out a reason.
