Microsoft's Lumia 635 4G Windows Phone available for just $79.99 off-contract

Last month, Microsoft announced its most affordable Windows Phone ever, the Nokia Lumia 530, which is now rolling out to various markets around the world. The 530 slots in the range below the Lumia 630, and its 4G twin, the Lumia 635 – but in the United States, the 635 is available at prices that are making the 530 look rather irrelevant.

The Lumia 635 went on sale for as little as $99.99 off-contract (depending on the carrier that you buy it from), but the device is now available for even less, thanks to a promotion at Frys.com.

Until September 4, Frys is selling the Lumia 635 for just $79.99, including free shipping, for the AT&T model (note that orders are limited to one per household). That’s a pretty impressive price for the device, which includes:

  • 4.5-inch FWVGA (854x480px) IPS LCD with Corning Gorilla Glass 3
  • Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
  • 512MB RAM
  • 8GB onboard storage (plus microSD support up to 128GB)
  • 5MP rear camera with 720p video recording
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • 1830mAh battery

We spent some time with the Lumia 635 earlier this month, and gave its 3G sibling, the Lumia 630, a detailed and thorough test in our review, judging it to be a pretty good handset, although not a perfect one. The absence of a front-facing camera, and lack of a flash for the rear camera, were among the things that we didn’t like – but its large display, decent battery life and smooth performance still made a good impression.

I paid way more than 80$ and I've been very satisfied with this phone. Much lighter than the Lumia 920 I had and much faster than the Lumia 520 with that new snapdragon 400 processor. Only the camera is trash in low light but whatever is it what it is.

Super low cost smartphone, something has to give.

FWIW, I think I've used my front facing camera perhaps once in the last 4 phones I've purchased. Not everyone uses that functionality.

Joke's on you buds. Obviously it's not the right phone for you, but not everybody needs a front facing camera. I haven't used one in any of my phones -EVER!

I hope you're not referring to me in that comment. I think you missed my sarcasm tag. The orginal poster is obviously looking for an 80 dollar phone that does it all.
