First Look: Zippier Nokia Lumia 635 is 630 with LTE

2:04 /

The Lumia 635 has the 630's quad-core processor, Cortana voice assistant, and 5-megapixel camera, but adds an LTE radio for faster data speeds.

Nokia has gotten really good at making budget Windows phone and now it has another one to add to its lineup. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNN and this is the Nokia Lumia 635. Now this is the exact same phone as the Nokia Lumia 630 except that it has 4g. So that means your gonna find an interchangeable back cover, a micro sd card slot, and eight gb of internal storage. [UNKNOWN] means your gonna find a four point five inch display with an 854 by 480 pixel resolution. If you're a pixel hound, then you will find that that is a little bit less crisp than what you're gonna find on the Motorola Moto G 4G. Luckily the 1,2 Gigahertz quad core processor inside works very well and the 5 megapixel camera on the back doesn't have a flash but it will give you pretty decent photos. Another teeny tiny different between the 635 here and the 630. is that 4G LTE radio will drain your battery a little bit faster. You have am 1830 Milli amp battery to begin with. The phone does have windows phone 8.1 on it as its operating system so you have a lot of themes to work with. You can change around the tiles and the size of the dynamic files on the front. There is a new pull down notification menu and of course the Cortona voice assistance. It does come in a variety of color options and again, you can change out the back plates. You can change the color as well. One thing that I will point out is that it's got these angled sides which I feel makes it a little bit harder to hold because it makes it a little bit smaller in the back than it is in the front. But I do like the mount finish and that is easy to grip. Overall this is a pretty nice little phone it will do exactly what you want it doesn't have a lot of whistles and bells but I do think that it matches the price. The closest competitor is going to be that Moto G 4G with an android experience. But, for a windows phone I think this is a good buy. For CNet I'm Jessica Bellcore, and you can catch the full review of the Nokia Lumia 6, 35 at cnet.com. [MUSIC]
