A suggestion...if you are a social apps lover (facebook, viber, instagram, whatsapp etc) then please do not buy windows mobiles. They lacks lot of featutes that will make you disappointed. Take an android mobile and compare with windows if you really wants to buy it. Do not regret like me. I knew the lackings but bought one hoping that windows 10 will recover these short comings. But no..they didn't update the apps yet and don't know how long we have to wait for full featured social apps.

Lumia 640xl is the worst phone I have ever used. What u will do with the display if there is nothing much to see? What u will do if the photo app doesn't work? Have u ever heard thay people cant view the photos? This is what we are suffering. For last two days the microsoft photo app is not working. People who love to use the full featured social apps, should not, I repeat, should not buy microsoft mobiles.
Arghya Ray, 27 Aug 2015Dear SJ , Thanks for reply . U're not getting my point properly - actually , what I'm sayi... morePeople who don't know what they need, have to browse 1000 apps...the official facebook, viber app of microsoft is the worst. Missing lot of features. U cant change profile pic, cover photo, no reply button and many more. Viber doesn't have video calling feature, yet some people say its the best phone. Just a good camera and moderate display with outdated chipset are not good enough.
Another issue...from yesterday the microsoft photo app is not working. I don't know what rubbish going on inside the developer team. When I went to send a feed back, I found thousands of similar complain have already been made. Whenever we open the photo, it shows the thumbnails but cant see any individual photo, automatically force closed. Who says this crap is one of the best phone??? Feel like to throw it to the waste box. Disgusting. All my passion for microsoft devices have lost. Will never ever buy any of their product.

Thanks for reply . U're not getting my point properly - actually , what I'm saying - whenever software makes their update as in upcoming feature , first it comes to android version , then it would appear in Win OS platform after couple of month ... assume - facebook video-calling option... when FB started it , as soon as appear in Android and after couple of month , it was in Win OS .
Like-wise , whatever , facebook version goes in Win OS platform , somebody says it as " beta version " - u can't do any display pics/ cover pics change , - means , lacks lots of usual feature what we actually get in Android version .

Win OS , as compare with Android - most of , users told that - most , of usual n frequently used appas are missing in Win OS like Instagram ... and most of social networking platform like - Facebook , whatsapp is running as its " beta version " ... means , lacking of present feature .
Even , you can't do gmail chat in Win OS platform - is it so ??
After using various smartphones of different brand I can definitely say that Lumia 640 640 XL & 730 is the best smartphones under 15K.Display is very bright you haven't feel any dullness in while watching full HD video colour production is very good even in (lowest mode) sunlight readability great .Yes among these 730 is the best in display quality (having 312 ppi along with Oled display best in class)retina type display and 4.7" perfect size for the smartphone.But all three are the best in class.Fantastic signal connectivity no network issue.WIFY is great.Battery at par.Camera unbeatable but (only struggle at night noice level visible),build quality is very good impressive one, no heating issues .Windows OS now very improved .And day by day improving more and more and yes it's highly optimized OS.Some features are amazingly beautiful on Windows Phone.Friends Take a chance and buy it.You will never regreat to have this masterpiece.

Which phone is better in your opinion, Samsung Grand 2 or Lumia 640 xl? I'm planning to buy one of them and I just can't decide. Please help! Thank you!
