My complete review regarding 640XL dual sim. Hope this will give u a clear idea about this phone.
Size: 5.7 inch will give u a feeling of a fablet. Good for gaming and watching videos. Bigger letter size and bigger keyboard.
Display: Good, sunlight readability is very good.
Camera: both front and rear camera are good in day light.
OS: the windows 8.1 demin was quite stabe but the pre release version of windows 10 is yet to be stable. Cant fully review unless the full version is released.
Battery: long enough battery life, removable battery.
Sim: dual sim and both sim supports 3g.
External memory: suports external memory.
Browser: the intigrated microsoft edge browser will give u lot of freedom. You can pin any page in the home screen.
Settings: categorised settings. With many customization options.
Call: user friendly, block number option.
Onedrive: 30 gb free storage.
Office: ms office.
Action panel: full featured in win 10 version like android.
Direct reply sms: u can directly reply sms from notification panel.
Heating: no over heating issue.
Voice command: u can write sms, take note by voice command ( only in windows 10)
Lenses: different lenses available like Office lense for capturing documents.
Size: difficult to operate in single hand.
Camera: poor image quality in low light. Single LED flash.
Sim and memory card: placed inside. Need to open battery to remove memory card.
Sim swape: difficult to swape sim while calling.
Photo: grouped according to date, albums from memory card will not be shown. Have to scrool long to find an old photo.
Store: not much apps like android.
Direct call/sms: no direct call/ sms widget like android but u can pin a contact in the home screen.
Facebook: lot of features missing. Not suitable for frequent facebook users.
Viber: no video call.
Apps: does not support apps from google ( like google chrome etc).
Gaming: I have experienced lagging while playing tample run.
Touch: sometimes becomes irresponsive. Need to open battery and restart.
Battery: needs 3-4 hours for full charge.
Date cable: no data cable is provided.
Speaker: single loud speaker, not that loud.
Voice: clear voice.
Cortana: not yet available in Bangladesh.
Back button: located at the left so your right hand thumb will not reach often.
Pocketing: difficult to pocket in tight jeans. More uncomfortable for bikers. The sharp edge will give u a uncomfortable feeling.
Unlock: the unlock screen goes all along from bottom to top, takes more time to pop up the home screen than androids.
Tile color: cannot changege individual tile color.
My opinions are based on a regular user not technical point of view. Technical specs are available in the specs section. Thanks.

What they are trying to do is already done by other OS long before. Not only the chipset, the whole OS system is outdated. Coz they are way behind others.
Gops, 31 Aug 2015Guys, Plzz help. Confused. Lumia 640XL or Lumia 730. Which one will be better.Both the set 730 and 640 XL is the best choice 730 having oled display Ppi 312 very sharp display selfie camera is great rear camera good , battery backup also good and above all its size is perfect 4.7" is very handy to use with single hand.On the other hand 640 XL is one of the most popular Windows smartphone.Windows 8.1 2nd update out of the box.Very nice phone display is good but not like 730 oled display viewing angle very good colours apears very punchy & attractive.Watching video on 640 XL is just great experience.640 XL Camera (13 mp) slightly better than the 730 (6.7 mp). Camera. 640 XL Front camera is good but not as good as 730.Battery backup is superb.Sunlight readability is great even in the brightest day you never feel uncomfortable while using it Touch is very responsive.Only disadvantage I personally feel it's size can't handle with the single hand.If you have no issue with size then just go for the 640 XL it's a best Windows phone at very resonable price.
Only craze left of 640 xl is first to get Windows 10, when and how its debatable. Nothings extra ordinary just the flow of emotions. Its end of story fr Window, no further numbers but patches securities only. Lets assume outdated Soc with one GB Ram can power Win 10, amazingly when marshmallow needs 4GBRam 820 Soc.

I have a Lumina 520 phone. Not at all happy. Only IE is working, not allowing to install any other browser except opera. when I am browsing and reading something this IE used to close automatically. When am switching from one window to another, the IE used to refresh itself which makes me to loose all my typed data on that page. Sending a small video file using bluetooth is not happening. looks like struggling with low memory. still so many issues am facing often. build quality is good, appearance is attractive, compact size. overall am not satisfied with this phone. since already i spend on this, atleast next two years I should use this, since my parents wont allow to buy mobile often. my friend have a nexus7 tablet, it is excellent. next time i will buy only Android phone. I dont want windows phone again.
If you are a fun lover, wants to enjoy the social apps to its fullest then DON'T buy windows mobile. Need proof? Just use any windows mobile, open facebook, go to settings, go to feedback..then u will see numerous complain from all around the world.

Most important never ever heats nor hangs nor restart, can say its a Windows credit with 1GB Ram. All updates to apps are 20-50kb size, and very seldom. If you compare Android its more hassle free😉.
640XL is par bellow specs phone. Esp MS has never bothered to give a serious touch n PPI Camera and Sound. All are sub standard. Available is only white or black that is warranty period started.

The common signs are force close (crush) various apps, unable to open photos, auto screen lock etc. It doesnt have land scape key board. But hoping that the complete version will eliminate all the draw backs. Waiting for that.

In fact at present days no OS is full proof. Now point is, should i be much concern about the security? i am not a VVIP nor CIP..i am a common person who loves to enjoy the social apps and stay connected with friends and family with the use of my mobile phones. I don't store confidential data in my phone. So i have nothing to worry about loosing any valuable data/information.
Yes..8.1 denim was much better than this 10. after updating to windows 10, number of issues have raised..force close different apps..even if i press back button for several times the screen gets locked. then i need to reopen the app. i dont know if this represents the example of a stable OS.
Unless they allow us to access google play store then within very short time they will be finished. Coz already they have lost one of their dedicated customers and i wont ever recommend any one to buy windows mobiles.
