It will be available starting in July

T-Mobile and its sub-brand MetroPCS will carry the budget-friendly Nokia Lumia 635 starting next month.

According to T-Mobile, the Windows Phone 8.1-powered gadget will be 4G LTE-ready and available for under $170 USD without a contract. 

To break it down a bit further, T-Mobile customers can grab the Nokia Lumia 635 for $0 down and for $7 a month for 24 months (total of $168). MetroPCS customers, on the other hand, can buy the phone for a promotional deal of $99. It's currently unclear how long that promotion will last. 

The Nokia Lumia 635 sports a 4.5-inch display, Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 5-megapixel camera, the Cortana personal assistant and a variety of colors to choose from. 


The 635 will be available on T-Mobile's site starting July 9, but if you'd prefer to pick it up in-store, you'll have to wait until July 16. 
 
As for MetroPCS customers, the 635 will be released in stores and online starting July 18. 

The 635 was originally announced at Microsoft's BUILD conference back in April. It's the first of the Windows Phone 8.1 devices announced at BUILD to be available in the U.S.

Since when have I ever said iOS is perfect?

I'll happily talk about how Android is worse than iOS and WP8, but that's different from saying iOS is perfect. I haven't said anything close to iOS being perfect, just that it leads in dev tools, applications, responsiveness, and performance. I've also talked about how the larger iPhones are a good thing.

Never once have I said the current iPhone size is perfect. I've specifically said 4.5"-4.7" is better, especially since that's the size phone I had before in Android and WP. I did say iOS apps blow away what's on Android, and that's true since aside from Google its all either bad ports, top tier apps that are missing entirely, that are made with inferior tools running through Dalvik interpreter instead of natively. The Android ecosystem is so bad in comparison, that's one I won't deny, but that's different from saying iOS is perfect.

Unlike you I don't make black and white arguments. Just because I say something is good, doesn't mean that I don't think it has faults. Unlike you I'm not a platform zealot.

Keep making up what you can though, keep living in denial, and keep letting your butthurt flow.

"Since when have I ever said"

That is kind of my point... I never said any of the hyperbole in your quote either. Not even close, but whatever. Lets leave it to an article related to that subject. This article about a WP phone which you called me out by name with your oddly pointed comment. MMMM Ok. Whatever.

"You've actually contested all the points there. Sorry"

Excuse me? Now you are straight up lying.

"B-b-but, Android was bad two years ago"

Dont try playing word tricks. That isn't what was ever said or meant. All I said was Gingerbread and earlier was really bad referring to your old android you said that you used to have, and that you had it for 2 years, so I assume it was 2.3x or earlier.

"Its impossible that an OS running on such slow hardware be smoother and faster than my Android God running on 5ghz quads! "

Again, pure lies. I never said anything even remotely close to that. WTF are you talking about?

You are at the point where you call me into a thread where I hadn't posted (about a different subject btw) and are just making shiz up. I think you need some ointment for your butthurt.
