Well I can anyway.... Maybe it depends on the Simcard you have.... I don't know, but I've got a choice and I use 4g for my prepaid Hungarian Telenor Sim and 3g for my UK virgin SIM, and they work great!
Hi, I have a 640 XL LTE/4G Dual Sim Black 8GB RM-1096. I've noticed many people complaining about the camera of the 640 XL, but it's a great camera for a phone in this price range. One recurring problem I've found online is people saying the camera doesn't work and displays a notification that "Whoops, Something went wrong", or similar. You have to have the microphone in App Permissions under settings set to "ON" for the camera That solved it for me, and pretty much everyone else.
Another thing I discovered through trial and error is that if you have the Flashlight XT app installed it wont work while the charger is plugged in.
My one and only issue (so far) with tho phone is that ever since the Denim update (or perhaps even earlier), you can no longer store Lumia Maps on your SD card. It's easy to fill up the phone's memory with a couple of offline maps - USA alone is over 4GB! I think when you initially start the phone when you purchase it you can choose, but after that it's impossible without a hard reset. I think I must have chosen to use the phone storage initially. Anyway, you can transfer your apps, photos, videos, etc to the SD card using Storage Sense, but the old Lumia Storage Check app (with which you used to be able to choose where your maps are stored) is no longer available (for some bizarre and frustrating reason).
So if ANYONE can find a way of transferring maps from the phone's storage to the SD card, I'd live to hear it! Otherwise this is the best phone I've ever had, and if you don't mind having only 13mp as opposed to the 20mp camera of the upcoming 950 XL, and you can live with 720p photos instead of 1080, (videos are 1080p) and you can make do with a Clear Black display rather than AMOLED, and you dont care that the processor is a Snapdragon 400 instead of 810 or whatever, then this phone is perfect, and you'll save a couple of hundred bucks too.
jerry, 08 Nov 2015camera is worstJerry use the phones camera, upload on a pc and then comment with complete info, not fair to comment on something or someone without proper info, The Camera of 640XL is really good, Additionally, you can get more camera functionality via Lenses, such as Cinemagraph (animated photos), Panorama, Refocus, Selfie, etc and it offers white balance, focus, ISO, shutter speed up to 4s and exposure settings. Look into details specs, use it and then comment.

Finaly conclusion- switching to Lumia 640XL (WP) from andriod was a good decision.
I'm using this phone for one month now and am extremely satisfied with it. It's excellent in all departments: battery backup, camera response & quality, display quality, readability (especially sunlight readability), network and internet connectivity, etc.
Even otherwise, I've been using windows phones for around three years now, and have never seen them Hang.
I guess this one is great phone at its price.
Are both sim cards in this phone are GSM +GSM or GSM +CDMA
i've been using for a while now. the battery life is great , i change from Samsung Note series to this , and to my surprised the battery last way way longer then android or compare to my sister's iphone.
but there is currently a downside as Store has limited apps ( Game) but mostly Social Apps are available , Whatsapp ,WeChat,Line,Facebook,TeamViewer and all . This is more like a work phone rather then a gaming phone.
The look of the phone personally i like it though is plastic look alike feel but when u put on a cover ,who cares what is the material as the cover itself its a new branding XD
I would rate it 4.5/5
While having Moto X Play, One plus two..etc..
and while there are android phones with 2GB, 3GB ram .. is there any reasons to choose this inspite of those power packed phones????
After 5 month using Lumia 640 XL today I bought Lumia 640 for my Dad.I didn't find anything wrong in this Lumia series a perfect smartphone.

There's a manual mode when taking pictures. I saw this phone and used it to take a couple of photos and have them transferred over my Xperia Z3 so I can upload the images online taken through the Lumia 640XL and I should say the images are sharp! Details are great and that is from a person enthusiastic about taking random photos and who has above average knowledge about photography. In it's pricetag, Android could make a very cheap looking and cheaply made device from outside all the way to the inside.
