Price Of Lumia 640 XL :

The 4G LtE version will retail for $299 around pounds to $159 both which are reasonable prices. Microsoft has indicated that it wants businesses to go for the Lumia 640 Xl because they could get three handsets for the price of one of its competitors flagships, with the screen size a 5.7 inches compared to the 5-inch display of the Lumia 640, the Lumia 640 XL  is one of Microsoft’s largest smart-phones, just shy of the Lumia 1520.

Screen Size :

Although the size of the screen is increased with the Lumia 640 XL, the resolution remains the same at 1080P, which means the smaller Lumia 640 screen is sharper thanks to an increased pixel density. however, during my time with the Lumia 640 XL, Windows Phone 8.1.

Display :


An upgrade to Windows 10  as promised later this year. It look good on the larger handset. The ability to resize live tiles into tiny squares was introduced with Windows Phone 8.1, Though on smaller screens this often meet the interface difficult to use. On the Lumia 640 XL larger display. however, it is a lot more useful.

Performance, CPU :

the performance of Windows Phone 8.1 was final hole with the Lumia 640 XL, if nothing spectacular considering that the mid-range specifications, which include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 with a quad core 1.2 GHZ CPU with  1GB of RAM.

Storage :

This should come as no surprise, we’ve heard that the internal storage will be 16 GB, though Microsoft has yet to confirm this. I was told when I spoke to a Microsoft representative that this storage can be expanded with a micro SD card up to 128gb, more via subscription to the one drive cloud storage service.

there’s no easy access to the micro SD slot from the chassis instead, you need to remove the back to insert and remove the memory cards, perhaps not the greatest hardship in the world but it could quickly become annoying, especially if you often swap micro SD cards. Despite its size the Lumia 640 XL is comfortable to hold, though that may be because I have been using a Nexus 6 recently. if you’ve never held a family phone before the increase in dimensions could come as a shock. placing the Nexus 6 in the Lumia 640 XL side by side showed only a small difference in body size.

Is It Good For You?

if you don’t fancy a big screen device or you have trouble cramming a fumble mid-sized handset into pocket then you want to avoid the Lumia 640 XL, however if you don’t mind larger devices the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL was light and film good in the hand though the plastic body leaves you in no doubt, that this is a mid-range smart-phone just because it’s plastic doesn’t mean it’s not well built,  it felt the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL can withstand a few drops.

Audio Jack, USB , Bottom :

Sadly with the ever watchful Microsoft representative was present as I examined the 640 XL, I decided not to test this out on the bottom of the handsets, it’s a micro USB slot for charging and getting data onto the phone while the 3.5 millimeters headphone jack sits on the top the handset.

Built :

the design of the Lumia 640 XL is very similar to the Lumia 620 except writ large. the increase in body size to accommodate the larger screen works well with the Lumia 640 simplistic design with end up magnifying the deficiencies as well. the problem is that once again the design a Lumia 640 and by extension the Lumia 640 XL is rather uninspired and there’s nothing new here.

if you’ve seen the brain plastic design a the Nokia Lumia 635 or any other earlier Lumia then you know what you’re going to get here. the edges her little rounder and the body a bit thinner but otherwise this is your basic mid-range lumiere design.

Microsoft promised MWC 2015 mid high-end devices will be coming towards the end of the year, so let’s hope it decides to push the boat out design.

Battery :

At the moment there’s little to be excited about here, the larger body has at least resulted in 3000 mAh battery being included.  A decent increase over the Lumia 620 is 2500 mAh battery. the fact that the larger screen keeps the 1080P resolution means we should see a pretty decent battery life something that large screen smart phones with ridiculously high resolution struggle with.

Camera :

The rear camera is 13 Northern Mariana Islands in slightly portraits from the back up the phone, it’s more pronounced than the iPhone 6 is bugging snapper, It means that if you’re a fan of mine Europe on face up in flat on a table the Lumia 640 XL design could prove annoying. there’s also a front facing camera though Microsoft was calling about the details promising only that it will be great for Skype. Microsoft promises all the updates and new features a Lumia camera app to be present incorrect when the Lumia 640 XL launches, so we expect fast auto-focus rich capture HD artifacts and other nifty tools.

What Microsoft Promises ?

Early verdict if you fancy a fumble its eyes smartphone but don’t want to pay the high prices that many such as the nexus 6  and iPhone 6 plus demand then the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL could be up interest, the lower resolution in current black up support for Windows Phone.
