This is the best phone I've owned in a long time. I was a longtime Android user from version 2.2Â–5.0. I tried the iPhone about 3 years ago and ended up selling it 6 months later and switched back to Android. Well last year I decided I wanted something different and decided to try a Windows Phone. The 640 came with Windows Mobile 8.1 and I easily upgraded it to Windows 10. It's been a real joy for me because I'm a fan of the Windows 10 operating system on my work machines so integration was flawless between the two. If you are an avid user of Microsoft applications (Office, Outlook, Skype, OneDrive) then you will love it. If not stick to something else. After almost a year of using this phone I have come to the conclusion that Microsoft designed this as a work phone, it's main strength is productivity. I am able to work in Office, drop files to Dropbox, open PDF's and there's even a Photoshop app that allows me to edit photos. That's why I love it so much. It's not meant to be a gaming phone. I will also note that the camera on this is excellent. My friends have played around with it and always mention how great the camera is and how nice pictures come out.
PIECE OF GARBAGE!!! Windows 10 upgrade has rendered it worthless! How do u get the narrator off? It keeps telling me something is wrong with my SD card & it can fix it! Hoooy. it doesn't work either. I hv had a constant headache from trying to fix ALL the bad issues. Going back to an Android in AM. At least it will ring when I get a call or text! This piece of crap doesn't even hv a working GPS!!!
Lumia 735 or Lumia 640 lte? Which one I want to buy in term of camera,which one is better
Bought 640 two months ago but had to jump to iOs for good. I thought MS would support their own softwares for a long time but dramatically changed my mind. Hell, I really like Windows.
I traded my nexus 5 for the Lumia 640 its a great phone I like it a lot no issues yet it's tad slower then my nexus but the battery life of the Lumia is well worth the sacrifice running windows 10 update smooth and awesome way better then android so quit your whining

AnonD-573064, 16 Aug 2016I'm using Lumia 640 LTE Cricket. I can't updated Windows phone 10 with Microsoft Advisor tool.You can update your phone to Windows 10 Mobile by downloading the Windows Insider app from the Store and selecting which level of updates that you would like to receive. After enabling the Insider program, go to the Settings and check for Updates. It will require the phone to download, install, and restart. It may require a couple of updates.
I just bought the Cricket version of this phone for fun at Target for $30 and I am really surprised at how good it is for the money. I am already using the Lumia 950 from AT&T but wanted a cheap phone to play with. It runs Windows 10 Mobile really smoothly. I can't see anything wrong with it. Surprised that it has NFC, FM radio, Gorilla Glass 3, and Glance for this low price.

I tried installing the anniversary update many times, even after many uses of the Windows recovery tool that install the factory rom Windows 8 that Lumia came with, and every, EVERY time Windows 8.1 works great but Windows 10 anniversary update makes the phone unusable! The Windows 10 anniversary update is the worst I have ever seen on any phone, including Androids...!
pc, 04 Sep 2016How do I upgrade to windows 10?Use windows insider to upgrade
wp lumia 640, 03 Sep 2016Works very well with Windows 10 (Version 1607 as of today).How do I upgrade to windows 10?
That my first Windows phone and i like it,i don"t use many apps so this isn"t problem for me,not a gamer as well,Win 10 works great,received 4 updates from June first and every time OS get better and better.I used Win 8 only one month so can"t compere it now with Win 10 but after update never looked back,sure it"s going to be even better.Windows control the phone? sure who don"t?,Google,Apple the same,they all make money on our personal information and advertisement,try to look for something in Google and offers will come from every seller just buy it.But one thing I will remember always,the price 60 USD for smart phone-with great call reception,smooth OS,no lag at all,I restart the phone only after update,good battery life,can store literally every thing on SD card,just love it.We all buy new phone in around 2 years,the cheep one,mid-range or flagship,but for me the lost is absolutely minimum of money.What I try to say,if You are not rich,can"t spend 500-1000$ for the phone get Lumia 640 and don"t look back,but don"t expect from this phone to work like phone 500$ value.

Totally blacks out at random times and all u said and more. Plus Windows completely controls your phone will not let u use rival apps in fact won't let u use anything not windows biggest rip off ever not wort $5 dollars and certainly not what I paid for it
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2016That just makes calls /text and only run few apps :(. Ok for Older persons yes. Samsung alway... moreA very easy and intuitive phone to use which would actually suit someone who want to use a smartphone as a smartphone, rather than as a Gameboy. Porting information and settings etc. between your PC and phone is made incredibly easy and it runs the same software used by most companies, so is extremely versatile and useful without having to "make it work" with business applications.
