Last year, Nokia turned the entry level smartphone market on its ear with the introduction of the Lumia 520 series devices. The Lumia 520 quickly became their best selling device of the year and the 521 consistently ranked in Amazon.com’s top five in no contract phone sales. The devices were more than aggressively priced, had enough features to make them relevant and delivered an experience that was better than anything Android could throw at it in the price range. Fast forward a year and to new competition from devices like the Moto E and G series, and Microsoft Mobile has stepped up their game to match with the Lumia 635.
The Lumia 635 is part of the new Lumia 630 series. The devices are identical across the board except for the inclusion of the LTE radio systems that will work in the US. The Lumia 635 features a 4.5” display, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a MicroSD slot for memory expansion and ships with Windows Phone 8.1 installed. It is sad to see that the memory sits at 512MB as this does rule out playing some of the more intense games on the Lumia 635, but as an entry level handset running Windows Phone goes, the Lumia 635 has more than enough power to make the average user happy.
The other amazing feature of the Lumia 635 is that you can activate this device on T-Mobile’s $40 Simple Starter plan, Spot Mobile, Simple Mobile or any other T-Mobile MVNO and save cash off your bill every month. That can make the 2 year cost for the Lumia 635 as low as $1089.99 with the $40 unlimited plan from Spot Mobile. Comparing this to the AT&T Lumia 635 GoPhone package, you are going to save $450 over that 2 year period.
The T-Mobile Lumia 635 is definitely a deal if you have strong T-Mobile coverage in your area. If not, the AT&T version is due out July 25th. Click the link below to grab the Lumia 635 before they are all gone.
