i was been using the updated win 10 version on my lumia 640 xl dual for 3 months and finally faced lots of issues on most of all apps , overall phone is slow with malfunction .
now after getting back to win 8.1 , i feel its fast good and light less featured with no bugs .
i see this handset hardware is not efficient to handle win10
I've had it with the 640 XL and Windows 10. I love Windows but his phone would have to improve dramatically to move up to unusable. Apps like phone, camera and photos crash at least once before they can be used. Camera will crash repeatedly while attempting to auto focus on a difficult subject. Messaging app loses or doesn't receive about 10% of the messages sent to me. Attempting to share photos via any mechanism fails about 33% of the time. Many apps crash unless I reboot the phone every couple of days. I try to use the groups feature in the people app (which I love) except that my groups just randomly disappear. You cannot turn live tiles off. Well you can click the slider switch in the app settings but they don't actually turn off and my start screen looks like its having some kind of seizure. There are a lot of really cool features in Windows 10 mobile that would be absolutely stunning if they worked. Maybe I got a bad phone but it is so bad that I was literally looking on google for instructions to remove windows and install android. Today was the last straw. While attempting to download the Garmin app for my step tracker the phone locked up and started vibrating constantly. I let it go for five minutes before pulling off the back cover and removing the battery. I did try every button combination that I had ever read about to resolve the endless vibrating but nothing worked. I'm going to reset it, sell it and buy whatever android phone I can afford. Anybody want to buy a lightly used Lumia 640 XL?

That error is caused by a different folder tree system, mostly after using that card in another phone without formatting it before introducing it in the lumia.

To avoid that...before removing ur SD cars go setting & chose remove SD card...this will help..
I've been using this for over half a year now and I'm quite happy with it. (My first choice would have been the BlackBerry Priv, but that was too pricey.)
The Windows Store has all the apps I need; the only apps I can't find there and I use on my Android company phone are Pokémon GO and Tango. (Obviously if you want all the latest fancy apps, you'd still better off with iPhone or Android.)
Great build quality, same level as BlackBerry. Camera is amazing; I stopped using my big Nikon.
I'm surprised people complain about lack of 4G; I can see in settings that highest connection speed is 4G - that's what I can see when I'm in good coverage area (I'm on EE).
On the downside, talk quality could be improved; the sound is tinny both in the headset and the speaker. Oddly, when playing music or videos it provides crystal clear sound. Alarm volume cannot be set to gradual and it comes over a bit too loud to my liking.
All in all I would buy it again.
