On 4th of august I bought this magnificent phone. I was looking for a either a phone with a physical keypad (BB Q10 which I had in my mind) or touch phone with a big screen (Microsoft Lumia 640 XL which was mid range, affordable phone) because my thumbs are big and I type a lot.
After watching lot of videos I thought that buying Q10 is not worth because 640 XL has a bigger battery and a better back and front camera. In my country both phones are having the same price tag.
- Big Battery (With one charge you can use it more than 36 hours. I not kidding. Im serious.)
- Big Keypad (Easy to type)
- Awesome Camera (It has the living images feature, shutter speed, ISO, WB etc etc. And when you zoom the picture you've taken you can see every tiny detail of the photo.)
- No Lags
- Phone Display Colors are Very Sharp
- Glance Screen and Double Tap features are available
- Low Memory Available ( As you know the phone memory is 8GB. But for the system it takes 3.41GB and they have already installed lot of apps to the phone which takes another 1.50GB out of the 8GB. And only 2.77GB was available at the time I bought the phone.
But it's not a big issue because you can store and install apps to the memory card. And if you want you can uninstall apps you don't need which will give you some space. Even though it has low phone memory it doesn't hang.)
- Takes 3 HRS and 30 Min to fully charge (From 0% to 100%)
So..... I highly recommend this phone if you have don't have a big budget to go to high end phone and if you have big thumbs like mine. And I personally believe this phone is worth every penny I've spent on it.
If this is you first WP dont worry about the apps. WP has all the essential and crucial apps you need.
mkkhatri, 06 Aug 2015Which one would you recommend (Meizu m1 note or Lumia 640 XL) when it comes to smoothness of a... moreYes dear Android lags even in 3 Gb ram but Windows will never even in 512 Mb ram it perform very smooth.
Friends when you are going to use Windows phone then you will feel the actual difference between the Windows OS and Android OS.Such feelings can't be explain by any word after all it's an Experience.I just say one thing it's the Amazing feeling while using Windows Phone.One thing more after using Windows it's very hard to go for the Android OS again any Windows phone usser will think twice to go for the Android phone.
Which one would you recommend (Meizu m1 note or Lumia 640 XL) when it comes to smoothness of apps, gaming performance, camera and overall experience? I have LG G2 but it lags during multitasking of apps. Seems Android OS can't provide smooth user experience even with 3 GB RAM. That's why I am switching towards windows phones. If possible please make a review on Meizu m1 note VS Lumia 640 XL.
Some says that photos by back camera somtimes grainy. Its true with lumia camera app. Download Oneshot and camera360 camea lenses and see the differnce. One shot is the best for photography. And in settings 16:9 means 9 megapixel and 4:3 results in 13 megapixels. Use Oneshot for perfect 13mp result wthout any grain even full zooming
anyone tried playing FRUIT NINJA game in lumia 640 XL? How is the touch response while playing this game? Any lag?

deepesh, 31 Jul 2015same Maybe your ram is fully occupied or memory is full. So uninstall some apps or free some memory for smooth operation.
