After a long long time I finally decided to buy new mobile, my old mobile was galaxy y gts6102. I too had lot of confusion while choosing mobile between Lumia 640, 730, Redmi 4i,lenovo a6000, asus zenfone 2 and moto G all coming in price bracket of 10k-12k. It was hard to choose between all of them but finally I went for this beauty and I'm damn happy that i chose this one!
The phone is very well built. It's sturdy and feels solid when you hold it in hand, like a flat rock.
It's a light weight though. It's curvy edges makes it comfortable to hold in hand and use it. The back cover covers up till mobile screen, giving it a one piece design look. The Microsoft LOGO on it gives it a premium look.
Display is a plus point of this device. It's the best display in IPS LCD domain. Corning gorilla glass 3 gives it a butter smooth touch while using and I didn't feel to stick a screen guard till now. I compared the display with MOTO G, the white is not real in moto g, it looks washed out, but in 640 it's clear white and it's more evident at high brightness. I compared it with zenfone 2 also and it beats in sunlight readability and brightness adaptation.
Its HD screen looks absolutely stunning when viewed directly, Viewing angels are too good till 40-50 degrees from each side but it diminishes as you bend more. No problem at all while playing tilting or racing games.
The double tap to wake up works brilliantly in day time when tapped properly but when in dark It takes more than 2-4 taps ,I think it's because it is using proximity sensor.
Glance screen works perfectly, It also uses light sensor to detect if you're holding mobile in hand or kept in pocket and displays time and notifications accordingly. When you keep your mobile beside any android phones your mobile looks alive while it displays time, notification led is old, feels great to have something which most of the so called smartphones lack.
It play 1080p videos real good, smooth. watching movies or tv shows is great.
It has 5 inch screen and a 2500mah battery which is perfect combo if you're a heavy user and don't want the juice to run out at the end of the day or plug your phone to wall as soon as you reach home. At most you'll lose 5% in 20minutes on heavy usage and it clocked 4.4% loss for an hour with 2g or 3g turned, location turned on with frequent chatting, which will easily last for more than 24 hours.
Believe me I've seen no hang since I switched on this mobile. I've installed like more than 128 apps with ~30 games, to name a few GT racing(1GB), Six guns, Asphalt 8(1GB), etc etc and it handles all of them very well. Multitasking works with ease. I had opened subway surfer, temple run, cut the rope 2 and hike, switched between them one by one multiple times and all of them resumed where i stopped without any restart, what more do you want? All of that managed in just 1GB RAM Hands down! windows OS handles it far better than android. No need to install any kind of RAM booster, cc cleaner. With no running background apps without user permission, the phone performance takes a leap.
With more that 130 apps and games I would show it on their face to whoever says windows phone lacks apps and games!
There is nothing much to talk about here. In good lighting condition the rear camera pictures are great but when in low light it suffers with noise. Front camera is too good for skype and selfies only in good light.
Call quality is too good and loud.
What really annoys me about this mobile.
1) Internet explorer is still amateur, it still requires a lot of improvements. Just waiting for windows 10 update and new edge browser, hope to see the real performance on it.
2) Camera quality in low light and moderate light is too bad, pictures are either either grainy or noisy.
But in good light it clicks brilliant image. I'm not much of a camera freak so doesn't matter much.
3)Apps restart once you unlock the phone and go back to recent apps. If you unlock in few minutes it'll not resume but after a long time it just restarts again. Again this is done to reduce power consumption.
4)Phone storage is less, only 3GB available for user which will force you to buy good High speed memory card. When you buy it, it's not even a problem , everything works seamlessly!
5) There is absolutely no easy to use app to lock your private photos or apps, like applock in android. I'm very much in need of this app and i'm still waiting for it to show up on store.
With kids corner and apps corner it's manageable but still need an app.
PS: Microsoft, a software giant is selling you this phone with their own OS with frequent updates which is the most important thing to think about before buying a smartphone.

Anon, 01 Jun 20154.5 better size specs 2gig ram/ 16 storage.Talk to us in english please. It's not a top phone, just a low- to mid-price phone. If you have so big expectations you can easily buy nokia 930 or wait for nokia 940 or 1030.
please any one tell either we will get earphone and charger with this phone or no??
Do v get earfones and usb cable with this fone? And what about secondary camera , can v use it for good video calling and selfies. Please, somebody suggest me.
