LTE smartphone specs shoot-out: Nokia Lumia 635 vs. EE Kestrel

Mikael Ricknäs | April 4, 2014
The options are increasing for people who want an LTE smartphone, but don't want to spend a fortune or sign an expensive contract. Two new alternatives that won't drain wallets are Nokia's Lumia 635 and the Huawei-made Kestrel.

For now, the Kestrel is an EE exclusive own-brand smartphone. It goes on sale at the end of the month, while the Lumia 635 is "expected to be broadly available, including in the U.S. starting in this summer," according to Nokia. T-Mobile and AT&T said on Wednesday that they will sell the phone in the U.S.

Mobile operators are putting pressure on smartphone vendors to develop cheaper LTE smartphones, so that more users across the world start using the technology. Increasing competition between chip makers such as Qualcomm, MediaTek and Marvell is helping make low-cost products a reality.
