DigitalDynasti, 28 Aug 2015You should have researched the information before you buy this phone. I get ur point saying th... moreDON'T judge me rather judge the phone..by reading your comment it seems like you are reviewing me instead of the device.
I dont appreciate who instead of helping starts criticizing people. If you are so experienced then give me some solutions how to overcome these limitations? can you add the features that are missing in this device? My point of interest is the social apps. My opinions are based on my user experience. I may not have that experience like you but good enough to understand the advantages and disadvantages.
I have been using microsoft lumia 640 xl for last 2 weeks. And I'm completely satisified. This phone has great features with no cons. If it comes to rating I will give 10/10. The great features are:- 1. Camera quality( front and rare ) superb my family too say, 2. Great call quality, 3. Screen size which makes it easier for typing, 4.Smooth performance no lags and never heats up ,5. Battery backup excellent , 6. fits easily in pocket, 7. Apps are awesome and sufficient yet some important apps are missing. I love this phone very much + every lumia series and Microsoft. I recommend this to everyone . So go for lumia , use it and have fun . It is much better than android. And the greatest feature is kids corner + cortana.
raihan.bd, 28 Aug 2015A suggestion...if you are a social apps lover (facebook, viber, instagram, whatsapp etc) then ... moreYou should have researched the information before you buy this phone. I get ur point saying that camera isn't the first concern to make a decision in buying phone, but you also arguing to show you proofs that this phone having a disappointing camera. But after you are given the proof by someone and that person told you to learn how to use this before you arguing, you even don't want to accept it. You said it again that you can use a mobile phone camera properly, but you are just not.
However, I read many of your opinions are based on disappointment and hatred, dramatic emotionally, not based on your experience. Maybe, but just a little.
A wise people talking the advantage and disadvantage of something while putting comment, because they experience it.
Just be a wiser people. Sorry to say that. ;)

Arghya Ray, 27 Aug 2015Dear SJ , Thanks for reply . U're not getting my point properly - actually , what I'm sayi... moreWell does that matter? The OS is smooth as butter..battery life is like powerhouse! As far as apps are concerned,android os sucks the battery with the apps..no matter li ion,li po.. I hav been avid android user tracing from gingerbread.and i realized now,android doesnt have life.beta version? It still works! Its india,we dont have 3g at ll times,where does video calling comes?? Where does these features are actually used by user instead of simply chatting..android users oversee the fact that whatever they are using is on windows,its the hype of android. Wait fr windows 10 and lumia ll b topp! As its already on low scale fons!
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2015i got lumia 640 xl from online store..when i saw the reviews of 640 xl it was damn amazing...c... more I have been using this mobile for the past two months. Initially I got disappointed with the quality of pictures taken in indoors at nights. However on going through discussions in various forums, I learnt that there is no problem with Zeiss lens. The problem is auto settings are not suited to night conditions. We have to set manually ISO to 64 or 100, shutter speed to 1/4 to 1/8 for indoor night conditions, 1/8 to 1/15 for outdoor night conditions. Under these settings, I am getting decent pics at nights also. Otherwise one can use proshot, one shot, 1shot camera or blink applications at nights in indoors. Now I am totally satisfied with the quality of pictures in both conditions.
Well, i bought this phone to replace my former Android phone, LG G2. At the first time, I bought this phone because the store sale all the Nokia Lumia phones, included 1520 which was my fave, but unfortunately, it ran out of stock. Then I tried to find another phone (yes am looking for Windows Phone), and here it is. I bought this one because the price is reasonable and whenever I looked at the specs, tried with my own hands, I love it.
But still, price takes the role anyway. I found many problems using this. I am not saying I can't adapt to this new OS. I used to use iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and well, all I can say, I am a lil bit disappointed by this phone.
If you guys looking for fun and concern to the social media apps, avoid this one.
But if you guys concern a lot to use Office apps and Microsoft Apps, you gotta love this one.
Battery is damn good. I can use it for a day till mid nite. Charger issue doesn't bother me, I change with another charger. Camera is not good enough, esp when taking photo in the dark place (yess, noises everywhere). 8GB internal won't be a problem, you can install apps to your SD card , exceptional for WhatsApp (I don't know why anw).
I didn't say I regret to buy this. Still, there is nothing better compare to iPhone, till now.
just for looking peace, not work properly, all apps will get crashed if we keep on using for a long time, and it don't have 4g option that is the main problem, I am very much unsatisfied with this mobile.
Only a good camera cannot be the reason to buy a mobile. Its the interface..how does the mobile let you interact with its apps, should be the main concern. If it doesn't allow you to use an app with full feature then that kind of device should be avoided. Coz we use mobiles to keep connecting. A good camera is an added feature only. Capturing photos is not the main task of a mobile phone.
A suggestion...if you are a social apps lover (facebook, viber, instagram, whatsapp etc) then please do not buy windows mobiles. They lacks lot of featutes that will make you disappointed. Take an android mobile and compare with windows if you really wants to buy it. Do not regret like me. I knew the lackings but bought one hoping that windows 10 will recover these short comings. But no..they didn't update the apps yet and don't know how long we have to wait for full featured social apps.

Lumia 640xl is the worst phone I have ever used. What u will do with the display if there is nothing much to see? What u will do if the photo app doesn't work? Have u ever heard thay people cant view the photos? This is what we are suffering. For last two days the microsoft photo app is not working. People who love to use the full featured social apps, should not, I repeat, should not buy microsoft mobiles.
Arghya Ray, 27 Aug 2015Dear SJ , Thanks for reply . U're not getting my point properly - actually , what I'm sayi... morePeople who don't know what they need, have to browse 1000 apps...the official facebook, viber app of microsoft is the worst. Missing lot of features. U cant change profile pic, cover photo, no reply button and many more. Viber doesn't have video calling feature, yet some people say its the best phone. Just a good camera and moderate display with outdated chipset are not good enough.
Another issue...from yesterday the microsoft photo app is not working. I don't know what rubbish going on inside the developer team. When I went to send a feed back, I found thousands of similar complain have already been made. Whenever we open the photo, it shows the thumbnails but cant see any individual photo, automatically force closed. Who says this crap is one of the best phone??? Feel like to throw it to the waste box. Disgusting. All my passion for microsoft devices have lost. Will never ever buy any of their product.

Thanks for reply . U're not getting my point properly - actually , what I'm saying - whenever software makes their update as in upcoming feature , first it comes to android version , then it would appear in Win OS platform after couple of month ... assume - facebook video-calling option... when FB started it , as soon as appear in Android and after couple of month , it was in Win OS .
Like-wise , whatever , facebook version goes in Win OS platform , somebody says it as " beta version " - u can't do any display pics/ cover pics change , - means , lacks lots of usual feature what we actually get in Android version .

Awesome mobile...... There is no problem at all. I am satisfied with this phone.
i got lumia 640 xl from online store..when i saw the reviews of 640 xl it was damn amazing...camera and battery mainly...but when i got this mobile in my hands i was disappointed...how can a 13mp cam gve less quality of pics compared to nexus 5 with 8mp cam and the battery life...for moderate usage we can get 1 and half day...nd i thnk mine is not a moderate usage below than that and my batery dies withn in one day...guys tel me what to do with dis
Win OS , as compare with Android - most of , users told that - most , of usual n frequently used appas are missing in Win OS like Instagram ... and most of social networking platform like - Facebook , whatsapp is running as its " beta version " ... means , lacking of present feature .
Even , you can't do gmail chat in Win OS platform - is it so ??
After using various smartphones of different brand I can definitely say that Lumia 640 640 XL & 730 is the best smartphones under 15K.Display is very bright you haven't feel any dullness in while watching full HD video colour production is very good even in (lowest mode) sunlight readability great .Yes among these 730 is the best in display quality (having 312 ppi along with Oled display best in class)retina type display and 4.7" perfect size for the smartphone.But all three are the best in class.Fantastic signal connectivity no network issue.WIFY is great.Battery at par.Camera unbeatable but (only struggle at night noice level visible),build quality is very good impressive one, no heating issues .Windows OS now very improved .And day by day improving more and more and yes it's highly optimized OS.Some features are amazingly beautiful on Windows Phone.Friends Take a chance and buy it.You will never regreat to have this masterpiece.
