With its fun design and cheap price, the Lumia 635 is a decent option to consider if you're after 4G LTE on a budget. It's only marginally more expensive than its near-identical 3G-only Lumia 630 sibling, so you should certainly opt for the 635. If you want a better selection of apps however, the Motorola Moto G is still the 4G phone to go for.
