I have had this phone for over 2 years and it works better now then when i got it, thanks to win 10. It have got better over time even this year camera takes fast photos, with better quality then before and phone over all runs smoother.
Microsoft don't have a app for everything, but most things like YouTube can you pin on you start screen. You can connect you Gmail to the standard mail client, witch is easy to use and works well. Besides with a display of 5.7" you can easily use and se the full pc- version of internet, if you don't like mobile- version of internet. Every app is not to be found in the store, like snapchat, for me is not a big deal, but fore some it is.
This phone can easily do most oft the things a computer can do, and that's what I expected from it. When I bought it i was seeing it as a cheap smartphone wit most features, now i think it's comparable to the best phones of the market. Everyone has their own opinion and needs but this phone has grown to me and it's has a reasonable price as a plus.
My usual tasks when i use it is phone calls, mail, sms, mms, messenger, Spotify, photos, office, surfing on the internet and it never fails on that tasks. My favorite functions is the big display and the big keyboard that comes with it, that have a virtual "joystick" and a easy change langue slide, and the standard smartphone stuff.
I am using this 640 XL lte from last one year I am happy with the performance and compare with other phones it is much better. but Microsoft(windows app) is not providing correct update on time. getting hang always even using camera ( all the software are windows apps).
So feeling bad to continue in windows phone
I have been using this Phone for over one year now and its whole lost of mess. Slow in app switching even when making calls its take time for u to see the person has answered. After the current windows 10 update, Facebook & Instagram is not user friendly. Shazam too is not working anymore.... Guys I don't really know if Microsoft is really going to produce again. I have used windows phone from Nokia Lumia 520 to 640xl but feel very bad now and decided to move to Andriod...

I just purchased this phone only $80(RM359 in Malaysia). Then update to windows 10 about 1GB data (because win10 more apps supported). Here details:
- Camera & Camcorder quality same or better than iphone 6 plus.
- Battery long lasting.
- Speaker louder.
- Double tap to wake, glance screen & sunlight readability.
- Microsoft Edge can open mobile website perfectly.
- Microsoft maps offline just fine & acceptable.
- Audio DAC just great for high end earphones.
- Apps can move on sdcard.
- Never feel overheat.
- Apps like whatsapp & Instagram feel like old version.
- No apps for Google maps,Gmail,YouTube,Drive,ebay. Or local banking. (You need better internet line to open via Microsoft edge browser).
- only can multitasking 7 apps.
- Too big. Hard to type some personal note.
- Made in Vietnam (check all functioning before buy it,i got faulty set before purchased)
This phone makes me less wasting time playing social media. So i like it or hate it sometimes.
Tasha.au, 27 Dec 2016My lumia only charges at low power, I think there is a connection problem. Any ideas.Sometimes i have the same problem.when this happens i turn off the phone and use the microsoft charger.I tryed with different Wiko charges and some have this problem and others no.
It´s a good phone
i din't trust the opinion here, so i bought it . the camera really horrible at indoor shooting even with enough lighting. can't trust my eyes ~
I am using the phone from more than one year, too many problems faced till now. there is software issues, on windows 8.1 platform I had too much problems in application crashes and and in windows store application is just for showing purpose actually not working in the smart phone. I also had a worst experience with the service part, phones original charger was malfunctioned in just 6 months. I went to service center for the same, they took 2 months to replace it, after so much follow-ups. after 2 months I got the new charger which always showing your device is charging slowly use original charger. Still the phone is very slow and it takes lots of time to switching between apps. I tried to sell it in the market, but no value i am getting for the phone.
