I purchased this phone a couple of months ago and I am not disappointed. The looks are great, speed is great, and all software is great. Nothing wrong with the amount of apps on the Windows store, and more will be added when Windows 10 upgrade comes to the phone this fall. Love it!
aman, 25 Aug 2015Is it 4G??????
You have two options to choose.
The single SIM is for 4G LTE.
The Dual SIM is for 3G and 3G only. With a larger size, battery.
Mejay, 26 Aug 2015Is this a good phone to get vs a cheap Samsung or lg??Absolutely, if you can find this phone for $100 or less (at Walmart, or $39 at MetroPCS if you're willing to stay with them for 3 months) it is an absolute steal. Samsung's TouchWiz user interface is making the Android experience horrible on any non-flagship phone, plus battery life usually sucks on Samsung devices and with Google apps sucking on the battery constantly in Android. In contrast, you will never have to re-charge this phone during the day, trust me.
Windows mobile runs sufficiently fast even with only 512 MB RAM, and this phone has 1GB. Other than the fact you'll have to find alternatives to Google apps and have to be fine with 3rd party apps in a few cases (which are sometimes actually better than the original ones, e.g. all apps from developer Rudy Huyn are fantastic), people generally like this operating system a lot. In the price range under $200, this is currently my favorite phone.
Mejay, 26 Aug 2015Is this a good phone to get vs a cheap Samsung or lg??Its amazing....really you wont be dissapointed....i myself have samsung note 3 but after buying this lumia for my dad i have fallen in love with this 5 times less costly lumia 640..it was a bit difficult to adapt to windows software in begainning but after exploring and exploring further i found many features with were so easy compared to my note 3 and many new features which i was expecting in note 3 without using some cheap android app..☺and i love windows ui of app compared to that of android version and the premium build quality lumia makes me admire of its feel everytime i look at it
I like this phone...i also like the specs of 735 and the amoled screen but for some reason i don t like the shape of it...i really can t decide...am i the only one who think that way?
Akashi, 22 Aug 2015Is this phone will get an update to Windows 10 mobile?Yes its available...but u may have to wait for sometime
mr.A, 22 Aug 2015hello carol, thanks for the reply...i hv two more things to ask...1st is how to turn off m... moreU can use Lumia camera app and click 3 dots (...) in the lower right panel of the screen and select front facing in the list of options for fast capture.But the is no way to touch any where on the screen and it clicks photos as it only sets all controls to Auto...u may use a third party application like Sight for faster capture
In case anyone wants to know the SAR values for this phone (according to the manual that comes with it).
These are Maximum Sar Values (meaning that its the highest it could be, many times its lower if you have a strong signal)

Lumia 730 having great display near to retina type display .Capable rear camera front camera is just a great but not as good as Xperia C3,and good battery backup.Lumia 640 Having nice display Not as good as 730,solid battery backup,good in camera.640 XL is again good display not like 730 & decent camera rear & front but not in dark in dark noise level is high and its visible too. 640 XL slightly bigger 5.7" 730 4.7" is just a perfect size easy to operate with single hand.Battery backup is at par simply superb.All three Lumia Smartphones 730 ,640 & 640 XL having great sunlight readability.
Overall all three sets have their own advavantage & disadvantages
