    I have a L635 that I played around with W10 Mobile before it was officially released and use as a music player for my old stereo system (I have a 3.5mm to RCA cable hooked into the back of my amp).

    I came across this tread last month and since I hadn't used the phone since the summer, I fired it up and checked for updates. Sure enough, the AU showed up and I installed it. After using the 635 quite regularly for a few weeks straight over the holidays, I have to say I'm thoroughly impressed how well W10M runs on this thing. Let me preface this to say the phone has no SIM and I don't use it as my daily driver (I have a L830 for that). It's also a pretty bare bones OS as I don't have a lot of apps installed. But for a Snapdragon 200 and 512MB of RAM it handles all I need. I feel like for most tasks, performance is on pare with my L830. Battery life has also been outstanding.

    Quick Update: it is March. Reset my Lumia 635 (Sprint; 512MB RAM) on 10586. I had it on the Fast Ring but had not been getting any updates.

    After reboot, the Anniversary Update available and installing!!!!!

    Just for reference, I don't have a SIM card in this phone and just use it for Telegram and Kik messaging as well as email and Facebook messenger.

    This is a really good question. I have not played with the phone in a few months, actually! I will report back with the findings.

    However: I have noticed that Messenger was sluggish. Someone has suggested extracting Messenger for Windows Phone 8 and sideloading it, but I simply have not had the time.

    I also plan to use DHTAdvisor to upgrade the 635 to the Creator's Update

    Well then. Better late than never.... Messenger has worked fine on this with 512MB RAM.

    Just wish they would release the Lite version already!!

    Currently have mine running the Creator’s Update still.
