Nokia Lumia 635 now widely available, the US will get it in the coming months
Microsoft today announced to the world that the Lumia 635 smartphone is widely available in markets across Europe and Asia. The 635 is the LTE variant of the Lumia 630, which was released last month.

Coming as the most affordable LTE-capable Windows Phone ever, the Lumia 635 obviously runs the latest Windows Phone 8.1, offering new features like Cortana, Word Flow, Action Center, and on-screen keys.

Similar to the Lumia 630 (which we reviewed here), the Lumia 635 features a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels, a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of expandable internal memory, 5MP rear camera, and a 1,830 mAh battery. The new handset has a recommended retail price of $189.

Starting “the coming months", the Lumia 635 will be launched in more markets, including in the US, where AT&T, T-Mobile and MetroPCS are going to sell it. The new Windows Phone 8.1 handset will also be released in Canada (via Rogers and Telus). Let us know if you're planning to get a Lumia 635 in the near future!

The Moto G has far better screen resolution; 326 PPI compared to the Lumia's 218 PPI. The Moto G also has more RAM (1GB) and a front facing camera, so I don't see how it's a better deal.

The Moto has no SD card slot.

The Moto G LTE does include an SD card slot, but does cost $30 more than the Lumia.

Yes, but it doesn't support 128 gig cards. Plus, removable battery with the L635 is also a plus and you can get a different variety of colors without paying extra for the back cover.

I could care less for the back covers, that 512MB RAM kills it in terms of multitasking and more intense gaming. If the Lumia was $100-$150 less than I would agree more, but for $30 more you could get a much better screen, more apps, front and back cameras and better multitasking and gaming, think it's worth paying that extra.

Exactly. Microsoft is never going to deliver the best value. They are too used to monopoly profit levels. The Moto G LTE costs a little more, but gives you more for your money.

There are only few things you're forgetting. That the Moto G has a LED flash while the 635 doesn't. On the flip side the 635 has 42 Mbps HSPA+ as a fall back from LTE while the Moto G only has a 21 Mbps radio in it. That makes a difference in non LTE areas. My Moto G had a best download speed of 12 Mbps real world, my Galaxy S3 non LTE with a 42 Mbps HSPA+ radio got the best download speed of around 30 Mbps. So the 42 Mbps radio is nice to have. HOWEVER the Moto G has access to Google services, the Lumia doesn't which is a deal breaker. No official YouTube, Google Maps, Hangouts, Google Voice, and Google Keep apps makes for a no go for me. I really wish Google would bury the hatchet with Microsoft. I really want official Google Apps on Windows Phone. I'd actually buy another one if they got Google Service compatibility.

Lumia 635 is for Microsoft and their services. Why should it offer Google apps and services? Plus, I'd rather take faster internet speeds than an LED notification light, which the 635 can counter with the Glance screen functionality, which works on the same premise.

The official youtube app isn't all that special imo, I rarely use it even on my note 3. Metro Tube or the pure old web experience is best imo. that is. Google Maps, I have had 3 instances where google maps refused to find locations here, giving me out of state recommendations. Here Maps found the exact location, and gave me other in-state recommendations. Google voice, I suppose, never really use it myself on the note 3 that is. Never used google keep, looks like One Note to me, lists, voice memo's, etc. Combine that with Cortana and to me no difference.

Wrong. The moto g LTE does support HSDPA 42.2. Also all moto g, e, x are all water resistant. Something that is useful but never mentioned. There is also a front facing camera on the moto g. There is no front facing camera on the lumia 630/5.

NFTW: "Plus, removable battery with the L635 is also a plus" The removable battery is a good feature. I think it's lame that the Moto G doesn't offer this.

It is lame. But the trade off is the Moto G is water resistant. The L63X is not.

Since when you fanboys started caring about removable batteries. That day in wpcentral, some of those nokia fanboys were trolling samsung ativ se, one said it has removable battery, all the nokia boys bombarded that poor guy saying no one cares about removable battery.

And 128gb cards still cost half the price of phone.

Search on eBay and you can find one with only $28

The Moto G is also water resistant. Which NO lumia is water resistant. The Moto G has a superior display compared to the 63x. The Moto G has a front facing camera the 63x does not. The Moto G rear camera has a flash, and shoot slow motion video, where as the 63x has no flash and cannot shoot slow motion video. The Moto G has 1Gb of ram vs the 63x only has 512mb of ram. Not to mention the ecosystem is more vast compared to WP.

You forgot to add IMNSHO. Infact you fanboys claimed wp 8 was better than android, before 8.1

This commercial made me want to upgrade so badly to the L930, But i may just wait for "Mclaren". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7eMY45Fw0M Why Microsoft dont place this type of commercial on TV is beyond comprehension.
