oldnayvi, 22 Dec 2015well I'm interested. I intend buying one in January and want to have a rough idea what I'm ge... moreFirst off, this is the second windows phone that I have owned for personal use. My last one was an htc that lasted a long time and originally sold me on the Windows phone OS. regarding the 640XL, I have had mine for over 3 months and I use it way more than the normal user. This has been a great device for me! I was hesitant to buy it at first because it seemed to be a lot of phone for the price. The screen is large, clear and sharp. The back is removable (a selling point for me) and the battery holds a charge for quite a long time. The processor and memory are sufficient for everything that I have thrown at it so far. The camera is better than I need. AV runs smooth, clear and loud. I know there are phones with the windows OS that are considered "better," but none give you so much for such a great price! I love mine!
I would like to add this about the Windows OS:
I am personally a huge fan of the windows mobile operating system. My wife recently decided to migrate to Windows Phone from Android. Having only ever used android, and not being very tech-aware, she was unaware that with windows phone she was going to have VERY LIMITED ACCESS to the array of google services that she has come to rely on, and no access to a few at all. If you are like most folks these days and rely on the google armada, you should expect migration to the windows mobile platform to be moderately difficult and frustrating. Almost all of the problems, and subsequent criticism, that new users experience derive from the app selection in the store, or lack thereof, and a lack of simple research. I suggest visiting https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps and taking a good look at what is available. That being said, if you don't mind using a web interface or third party work around "hack-ish" apps to access the majority of your google services, and you have the patience to stick out the process, you will end up loving the windows mobile UI. One thing to remember is that Windows (10) Mobile is ac imputer operating system, not a smart phone UI as you know it. With that comes a customizability that is unparalleled! The settings list is very extensive! My wife gets frustrated when something minor and annoying happens, such as her music turning off when she shuts off her screen. I just show her that the fix is in one of the many settings. This is a nearly-fully functional operating system engineered to work on a mobile device. Everything from visual esthetics to file allocation to even having a little "eraser" style mouse in the keyboard for in-text navigation, proves that this is not a cell phone but rather a step in the evolution of mobile computing. It is a far superior OS than anything that has come before it for the mobile world.
Also, having a PC that you are used to using at home or work that currently runs on Windows 10 will significantly aid your migration to Win 10 Mobile.
I apologize for my long windedness but it is important to me that users are fully educated before they make the decision. For the sake of the customer and Microsoft both
I sincerely hope this helps
It's amazing device with a good price . And windows 10 is wonderful on it .

vikram, 18 Dec 2015No Window 10 updates for our mobile this. Now window 10 update is coming early next year, but ... moreThe Lumia 640XL is able to receive windows 10 for mobile updates if are registered with the windows insider program. If you sign up for the "Slow Ring" the builds that you receive are really quite stable. Being in the insider program I have been able to progressively adjust to th realities of what's good and bad in our future operating system, and adjust my hopes and expectations accordingly. It does require you to be at least a little active in sending the information that the phone gathers throughout the days to Microsoft and be a little vocal on the forums. I have really enjoyed the experience.
whoever reading this msg. Either Ma'am or sir.
This is special for Windows phone users.
I hope most of the users are using Lumia devices whatsoever the model number and year it may be. I presume you as having good technical knowledge and social status as you opted for Windows phone.
But here comes the issue. Microsoft is constantly fooling us and cheating us by making to believe that they are releasing windows 10 very soon. But already its year late and still they are postponing their dates.
So regarding this issue and irresponsible behaviour, we the windows user are going to protest against the Microsoft by not using their phone for a day and not suggesting their devices to buy to our friends and family. This message is not from any Android fan but from an average user of Windows who is tired of expectations of Windows 10.
On the Christmas. 25 th Dec 2015 we will not use our device for a day. This is our protest against Microsoft.
Thank you very much
And please help us in this mission.

More apps all the time...love this phone. With 128GB SD card, it's amazing. Camera resolution is fantastic... OS is snappy and not one crash or app compatibility issue... syncs seamlessly with Cloud and full integration with onboard Microsoft apps. For the price, this phone is excellent.
basically good phone with minor lags, lack of video play back of some formats, still windows 10 build is working fine on this device but need to improve in certain areas like contacts in dialer menu like wise there are still plenty of small options which are need to be added but its a good OS totally i didn't find much difficulty using with this phone camera quality is very good.
