Do you have a kid in sports? An older kid that is home alone after school? Are you in college? Well, with school already here and Christmas around the corner- I have the perfect phone for you. I have never heard of a phone that doesn't cost an arm and a leg when you get it. The Nokia Lumia 635 is only $100 off contract! YES you heard that correctly! My first impression when I opened the box was that it is a cute phone. It isn't too big. It isn't too small.
Not only is this phone cute- but it is also super fast! It is a Windows Phone 8.1 phone! It is fast because it has a 1.2 GHz Quad core processor! And it is powered by 4G LTE speeds. Have you ever had a phone that lagged? Yeah, not this phone!
As you can see below- It has a slot for a microSD card of up to 128GB of memory, it’s fast and smooth. You can pop the back off and interchange the shells! That is a great feature as well because many phones these days don't offer that.
This cool phone also last pretty long through the day. Maximum talk time (3G): Up to 16.4 h & Maximum standby time (3G): Up to 17.3 h as well as a Maximum music playback time: 40 h.
I love the phone isn't bulky as well. As you can see in the picture above. 9.2 mm thick if you are wondering. It has a pretty large display. 4.5 " to be exact. The touch screen is pretty cool because of the Capacitive Multipoint-Touch. Check it out below:You can personalize your tiles on your home screen to pretty much anything you want. You can change the colors to match your mood or add a photo for that adorable touch.
I am also able to add Twitter on my lock screen.. Well yes.. I am a social media junkie. All of the social media apps are available in the store too! Vine, Vimeo, Facebook, Skype and Instagram.. and more! The 5MP camera is pretty nice. I am able to take great pictures of the kiddo. Don't forget, this phone has Cortana! If you haven't seen the TV Commerials with her on it, you are missing out. She knows what you want, where you are going, whats happening and assists you with all of your needs. If you are a music lover, there is a subscription-free music app called MixRadio! Check it out! You will love it.
Overall, I love this phone. I love everything about it. I was using the LG G2 before this phone. This phone seems to be a tonfaster when it comes to overall use. My phone is on the T-Mobile network but this is also available via Sprint. What do you think? Do you see yourself owning this phone in your near future? Christmas is almost here- It will make the perfect gift under that tree too! This is a great starter phone for the first time cell phone user.
