Microsoft suggests the Nokia Lumia 635 is a better option than the iPhone


Far from being a high-end bet, the Nokia Lumia 635 is one of the cheapest 4.5-inch smartphones out there today . However, this hasn't stopped Microsoft from saying that the phone is a better option than an iPhone.

Nokia's American Twitter account has published an image of the Lumia 635 accompanied by a "competing smartphone" that costs $ 700 . From the image and the lines of the drawn mobile we can intuit, without a doubt, that it is an iPhone . In the United States , Microsoft's equipment can be purchased for $ 100 (about 75 euros) and various accessories can be attached to it .

Among them, a Nokia Lumia case , a portable and wireless speaker of the brand , an external battery ... etc. But, even if the user decides to buy all those gadgets, he would still not pay what the Apple mobile is worth . In addition, it must be taken into account that the Redmond company gives all users of this terminal various games for the Xbox and Microsoft Office Mobile .

The illustration has been published alongside the question: “Can you tell us which is a better offer? ;) ". Of course, for customers who cannot afford to pay such an amount for a smartphone, the Lumia 635 is a good option . However, we must recognize that it is not comparable to high-end phones such as the new iPhone 6 (or any flagship that works with Android , Google's operating system for mobiles and tablets).


Anyway, if you are thinking of buying a Nokia Lumia 635 for the striking price it has, we will tell you that, as a whole, it has balanced specifications for its cost . Thus, the smartphone comes with a 4.5 inch screen having a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels .

Inside it mounts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor running at a power of 1.2 gigahertz . This chip will ensure a good performance of the terminal. This is accompanied by a RAM of 512 megabytes , which can be somewhat scarce when running several apps at the same time.

Inside it has eight gigabytes of internal memory that can be expanded using an external microSD card of up to 128 gigabytes . With it we will have more than enough space to save all the files and applications that we want within the terminal. Likewise, we can always use a cloud storage service such as DropBox or OneDrive .

Its main camera is five megapixels and does not have a front camera. For that reason, we will not be able to take  selfies or video calls . It works with Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft's mobile and tablet operating system . It comes with a battery of 1,830 milliamps , enough to have a day of autonomy .

In Spain the phone costs 150 euros , a figure slightly higher than in the United States. Still, it is still a very inexpensive option if what you are looking for is a simple entry-level device .
