Reviews Word on the street for the Nokia Lumia 635

The 4.5" ClearBlack IPS display doesn't win resolution awards at 845 x 480 pixels, but it does have decent viewing angles, good color saturation and plenty of clarity.

Display Details isn’t its strength, but the 4.5-inch display produces accurate looking colors, and proves to be visible while the sun’s out.


7.5 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


No changes here with the display, so it’s the same 4.5-inch 480 x 854 IPS-LCD display with Nokia’s ClearBlack anti-reflection filter from before.

Still, its muddy details and inconsistent color production become rather distracting over everything else.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
Its details are decent enough to accept, however, colors aren’t reproduced accurately – giving our shots a subdued look.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)


As an alternative, there’s also the updated Windows Phone camera app, but to tell you the truth, we prefer the Nokia Camera interface more.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
The camera’s main distraction is its inability to accurately produce colors.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
It's a decent camera for well lit environments, and will likely seem like an improvement if you're moving up from a feature phone or older smartphone.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)


Music output via the loudspeaker is indeed loud, but its output is accompanied with a reserved tone.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
Notifications are no longer a jumbled mess with the platform, mainly because Windows Phone 8.1 introduces Action Center – an Android-like notification center that populates all of our notifications in one spot.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
Non-multimedia runtimes were better, and the phone held up fine for web, email, social networking and snapping a few photos.
by MobileTechReview (Jul, 2014)


The battery capacity isn’t particularly massive, but it delivers longer juice than what you’d expect.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
In our experience, we’re able to get close to 2 days of normal usage from a full charge.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
It’s not a record, but it’s nonetheless more long-lasting than other handsets with bigger batteries.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)

Network technology

Well, it’s most notable for having 4G LTE connectivity, which lends itself in loading web pages a lot quicker.
by PhoneArena (Jul, 2014)
Quite the opposite: it's nice enough looking, has a decent display, 4G LTE where most ultra-budget phones stop at 3G, a quad core processor and a decent rear 5 megapixel camera.
