I have used this device for almost seven months. Overall I will not recommend this device ,I recommend Samsung galaxy a5 or j7 over this Lumia 640 XL. The positive sides of this device are good battery life( for average use you will get at atleast 1-1.5 days), camera picture quality is good but sometimes picture looks unnatural, display is bright enough, browsing experience is good, gaming performance is ok but for high category game like asphalt airborn 8 sometimes you will see some laggings which mean that 1 GB ram is not enough for this type of games, and as other Windows phone the phone doesn't get hung and it runs at the same speed all time, The negative sides are poor Windows operating system; the customization and multitasking are very poor comparing to midrange Samsung Android device, lack of useful apps even in the case of important apps you will see noticeable limitation, the default apps are not limitation free for example default internet explorer is too much user unfriendly which is surprising in the case of 2015 smartphone, it claims that it will support SD card up to 128 GB but I am surprised that it actually doesn't support even 32 GB,I use Samsung SD card and 16 GB SD card is not enough for me, the video taking is too much inefficient; in 720 p settings in room light condition for just 30 seconds videos it consumed almost 40 Mb memory and in 1080 p settings it will consume almost twice memory than this; in sunlight condition the video color looks quite unnatural; I don't know the position of video taking in other smartphone, Overall it can't be a recommended device when I see there are good midrange Samsung device like a5 or j7 which is slickly higher priced than Lumia 640 XL but better than this Lumia device. The most poor experience is Windows operating system which is very limited comparing to Android OS.
This mobile is good but it does not support most of the apps tat I cannot install instagram,snap chat doest works and retrica doesn't open now I regret buying this mobile
Sometimes my Lumia 640xl's display color & contrast going to change automatically. After restarted it is fixed. Would anybody tell why is that & what's the solution of this problem?

gaurav bigg, 28 Oct 2015Firstly thanks for your reply.One more quiry Whenever I visited torrent site.Then after I sw... morei also get this scan SD card message daily... i think SD card get some errors and windows system need to fix them.. if you tap on "no" you can still able to use apps.. no problem..
but i think scaning is important to your SD card to keep working properly..
but dont scan it in your phone.. it takes too long to scan on phone..
someone told me that just remove sd card from phone.. put it in card reader and connect to windows pc.. it will ask you to scan sd card.. scan it. PC scan more faster than phone..
i think scanning process takes 30 to 60 min. on PC..
scan it on pc

Why It happens....?
gaurav bigg, 28 Oct 2015Windows phone didn't support all featurs of "TRUE CALLER" apps. It will not shows in... morei am not sure it is Microsoft fault or True caller devs fault..
i think it is hardware problem.. our lumias have Class B gprs connectivity.. in class B gprs only one thing works at a time(gprs or call)... means when their is a incoming or outgoing call at that time gprs connectivity aborted until you end call so in that condition with no gprs connection True caller doesnt identify/search caller id from net..
this is my opinion.. this is fault of class B gprs conectivity

it is still unclear project Astoria removed for permenently or temp.... so just wait before final conclusion.
hope you understand...
Microsoft removes Windows Bridge for Android in latest Windows 10 build.Windows Bridge for Android in the latest build of Windows 10 for smartphones. Windows Bridge for Android, otherwise known as Project Astoria, enabled developers to easily port their Android apps to Windows by retaining most of the code, and allowed customers to sideload Android APK files, no longer seems to be working,the reason for removal is that the Android subsystem was slowly degrading Windows 10 Mobile.
