I bought 2 lumia 640 XL phones for my wife and myself. I kept the non-LTE phone while she chose the LTE handset. I got super frustrated with mine in a month with so many bugs. Network will freeze, whatsapp ll crash, Calls wont come through etc etc. Basically everything that requires a network wont respond. Worst part is you will still see signal bars on the screen and wont be able to figure out if the signal is there or actually gone. Good enough to be a paperweight. I did all stuff like getting a class 10 memory card, using un-cut sims, factory resetting. Even tried using only mobile network and not using wi-fi. rebooting ( hard reboot ) atleast 15 times a day...Super frustrating experience . So i got rid of it and switched to a blackberry. At least i recieve and make calls withou having to reboot the phone every time.
My wife continued with the lumia 640 XL LTE. Whatsapp doesn't work. Facebook doesn't work. She also didn't know that her fone's signal goes missing every now and then until she missed some job interview calls. We also tried all solutions we could come across such as upgrading the windows, upgrading memory card, changing sims, using only mobile network etc. I am planning to gift her a oneplus3 for our wedding anniversary.
The whole microsoft phone experience was nightmarish
i cannot get a screen saver loaded

With the appps Android have 1400000 while windows have 400000 apps be aware.
Ricoh, 01 Nov 2016You're absolutely wrong. The device has a much higher quality compared to others that use othe... moreIts not about having 100 apps, its quality and them actually working, not crashing every minute. And also the Windows Store is still pretty desolate. They should put Android on all the hardware would be better.
My phone has been fine up until today. Now, the text, call button and contact list buttons have quit working. I have tried restarting it multiple times to no avail. I don't know what to do. 😭
saqib, 07 Nov 2016Are you willing to sell the phone as I'm willing to buy it as an desperate and need something cheap.Yes $20
Using L640, when I delete my files its appears after restart, and Pl buy that one and feel superb chod of Microsoft. Seriously
The Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE is a thoroughly great phone. Even after the Windows 10 upgrade. Yes I did have some issues with the phone heating up and such when I initially upgraded to Windows 10 but, a quick session with a B2X support technician and all problems have been resolved. The phone functions stupendously to date. Thank you Microsoft.

Anonymous, 05 Nov 2016You wouldnt happen to work for Microsfoft?I like Lumia and BB phones,so I work for both of them?,just don"t be like that,16 years old boy no meter what,you are right. I have only good experience with both phones,both have tiny app store and low market share,so what?I just like them and I share my opinion only mine.
Great until the un- wanted 10 up grade , now it blows chunks.. Good Phone only, 10 SUCKS!!!
After a long experience with android I tried this Lumia 640 and found it much cooler in almost everything: device quality, windows smooth operation, great touch, strong build device, great sound and speaker, great 8MP camera and video, a battery that lasts at least 3 days, great WiFi reception, anti-scratch face, beautiful colors high res screen, very nice fully customizable live tiles not found in IOS or android, more than enough apps in store and other, and most importantly it does not download updates by force like android. It's truly a very reliable device that is so nice to carry around and operate at an incredible price.

The device has a much higher quality compared to others that use other OS. and the app store is quite sufficient unless you wanna spend all your day trying new apps and games.
My last phones were BB 9780,Z10,Q10 and I liked them very much,so apps never been problem for me,looked for affordable phone with bigger screen,good reception,loud and clear sound,big battery and by my opinion Wind.10 the best OS made by MS so far,so Lumia 640 has every thing I need.Just to be clear,this phone not the fastest on the market but the best value for the money.
