We are used to getting screwed over anyway, I would gladly pay $649 for a flagship at launch,

Everything is expensive here. The 16GB Nexus 5 I bought from the Play Store is £300. But it's worth it, considering that other flagship phones cost over £550.

Specs aren't the only thing though. There's more than that that plays into the price of cell phones.

If you read the article carefully, you'll see that the L635 (which is the LTE version) cost 129 or 149 pounds depending where you buy it in the UK. So that's about 10 to 30 pounds less. Not only that, the 635 has a removable battery and supports MicroSD cards of up to 128 gigs, not to mention the guaranteed 3 year software support from Microsoft. In any case, both of these phones are a great buy at those prices.

Did I say that it didn't? It doesn't support sd cards of 128 gigs, which the L635 does. That's what I pointed out. So chill...

Well considering the Moto G LTE also has a superior display compared to the Lumia 630/635 with a resolution of 1280x720. Not to mention all the other features on the moto G that are missing on the 630/635. The moto G has a rear camera flash, front facing camera, light sensor, water resistant, slow motion video capture. All of which are missing from the 630/635. So for the 10 to 30 pounds more. Its worth it to get the Moto G.

Do you have a clue what you're talking about? Moto G offers much better 720p display and 1gb ram... Which eclipses your removable battery and 128gb sd card. Also who knows, Moto G might support 128gb cards.... My Galaxy S2 was said to support 32gb card only but 64gb worked like a charm.

I just got the Moto G LTE as I had broke my other Moto G. Their both good, But if you can go with the LTE version. I like having the choice of the white color now too. This lumia had a chance to compete in that space and failed.

The attack of the lumias. Glad to see more WP devices, competition is healthy for the consumer.

It's a s**t phone for stupid chavs who are more impressed with the range of colours. I would know, I worked for cpw.
