Telemundo and Presentado por Microsoft was kind enough to let me try out the Nokia Lumia 635 (powered by Microsoft). For years, I was an iPhone user, but now, I’m a happy Droid user. I was excited to try out the Nokia Lumia 635 because the first phone I ever had was a Nokia. Let me share the lowdown with you guys!
The Nokia Lumia devices powered by Microsoft are powerful mobile devices that help you do more. The Lumia 635 has an advanced quad core processor, so it moves at blazing fast speeds for a superior experience. Its beautiful 4.5” display is easy to read, making it easy to love. It helps keep your life in sync with Microsoft OneDrive and it helps you share your social life on your favorite social networks. The Lumia 635 also features:
- One Note
- One Drive
- Homescreen Tiles
- MS Food and Drink
- Mix Radio
- MSN Fitness and Health
- MS Sport
The Nokia Lumia is very affordable, I’m talking under $100 affordable. It also has 4G LTE, and interchangeable colorful cases.
Let me introduce you all to Cortana. Cortana is your very own personal assistant that will learn your specific interests, the things you care about, and even make recommendations for your needs. Cortana was programmed to warn you about impending road conditions to reminding you of important dates and events.
Right away, I noticed how personal she was. This sounds crazy, but she truly has a personality. Siri and Galaxy sound like robots, but Cortana sounds like you’re having a conversation with a friend. I’m kind of embarrassed to admit this, but I sat down for a few minutes and had her tell me jokes.
Cortana is the only personal smart phone assistant with people based reminders, which means she can remind you to congratulate your friend on their recent engagement when they call, or send your brother a birthday card.
Moving on to One Note
One Note isn’t your average “note pad”. You have options to use a note pad, or turn it into a shopping list, or even a travel itinerary.
Are you trying to eat better this year? Perhaps you want to cut back on eating out and save money in 2015. The Big Oven app is free and will give you great guidance.
The use up leftovers option was my friend this week.
You simply type in three main ingredients you have in your fridge…
Big Oven suggested Warm Thai Beef Salad. I actually love that dish and not once did it cross my mind to make it. There’s a search option where you can search for thousands of recipes. You’ll stop stressing about what to make for dinner, potentially try new dishes, and stay on track with your new year diet.
These apps can truly keep you on track with your new years goals, but stay tuned later this week because I have a part two review on this Nokia Lumia 635!
