Would this phone work on Koodo? Processor looks like it would be slower than the Lumia 635, and screen resolution is higher so I wonder if speed would be noticeably slower.

I've had it (friend uses it now, as I use the Lumia 830).

Yes, it works on Koodo (and all other carriers including Wind). The performance was no inferior to the Lumia 635 that I used. It has the same CPU as the 635, it's the GPU that's weaker, but I had no performance issues. It's a great phone for the price.

Thanks. I picked one up and can confirm it works perfectly (I did have to enter the APN settings as it didn't detect them automatically).

At least it did work when it worked. I had a battery error with the first one I bought, so I exchanged it for another one. This one failed in an unusual way: one morning I switched the phone on as I left home, put it in my coat pocket, and didn't use it during my one-hour trip to work. When I arrived I reached into my pocket and discovered the phone was overheating and showing the same battery error as the first one. I exchanged it for a Lumia 635, which is currently on sale at the Microsoft store for $149.

Sorry to hear that. The one I passed on to my friend still works fine. Hope that the 635 works out better for you.
