Planing to buy this phone.... wen will win 10 will be available for ris ph?
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2015While having Moto X Play, One plus two..etc..
and while there are android phones with 2GB, 3... moreBoss, RAM is only 1 GB, because simply u don't need it for regular mainstream apps.
Andriod App code not optimized hence needs more memory , but here Microsoft App framework itself optimized and do same when u compile your code
Futher windwos phone OS kernel do runtime optimizations, garbage collection from memory automatically.
further this OS leverage Swap File fuction ( pagefile) which is inbuilt , when needed :)
So u wont need more RAM in most of the cases....

Same plastic body, same ss all that window10 has but why are you dying for 950xl. Hold on we will someday not 1st qtr will be boost.
It's the Motorola commitment Moto E 2nd gen was not in the list earlier but Now it will get M update.On the other hand Long waiting Lumia devices especially 640 & 640 XL was launched at 28 th March MWC as the 1st Lumia series will get Windows 10 (mobile version) update in July earlier then after December 14 the final releasing date for Windows 10 (mobile version) but now the realising date will sifted to Next year 2016 March or April but not sure when Lumia devices will get Windows 10.So pathetic Microsoft, It all proved that you lost the game in front of Android and IOS.
I'm a bit confused between this phone lumia 640 xl and vivo v1
pls help choose...
HI, Can you help me for 3G function is it work for both simcards?
I mean sim1 is dedicated for 3G or sim2 or both?
I bought the 640 XL LTE, on 24 th Nov 15. Since then I have not faced any problem. I had Lumia 920 prior to this. There are considerable improvements in this device.One gets all essential apps for usage. So cant complain.
I only wish Microsoft becomes little more aggressive in promoting these devices. Provide more value addons to Lumia users through Microsoft technologies...like windows 10 update...free songs or limited edition free subscription etc etc...
Office should be free for all Microsoft devices to encourage people to buy MS devices.
Mubarak Aljawder, 11 Dec 2015Really I can't understand Microsoft policy. For Android and IOS Microsoft is offering word, po... moreIt's not true Office package is completely free in all Lumia devices and it includes word,excell and powerpoint.Office 360 only for one year subscription.
Really I can't understand Microsoft policy. For Android and IOS Microsoft is offering word, powerpoint etc. Free with full features. While with their own products very very limited features or not free. In another words they are telling the people if you buy MS product you will not enjoy MS office, but if you buy our competitors' product, you will enjoy MS office free. So buy our competitors' better for you.
First of allÂ… I bought this mobile from direct outlet in Chennai for a lesser price than amazon.
I have been using it for more than 10 days now. I had IPhone 4s previously.
The Lumia 640 XL LTE has excellent user interface and pretty easy to navigate to various screens. Though the specs seems to be of lower end compared to android mobiles out there, it does not hang at all, smoother and faster. Excellent responsiveness, guess itÂ’s all because of the operating system Â– Win 8.1. The options are really easy and simple Â– can toggle and lock between 4G, 3G and 2G.
Built: Extremely well built, the black colour and glossy white is awesome, matte white may easily observe dirt. The finish looks premium, its slim for a certain level and light weight too.
Games: I have played Asphalt Air borne, Temple run, Lara croft, Brothers in arms, etc. Â– minimum an hour a day of gaming, all the above games were smooth and I found no issues in running them, no heating and lagging. Rank 9/10
Display: Jus 259ppi display Â– but nothing seemed wrong, it gives very good clarity output always. Display size is outstanding, would definitely call it a plus for this phone. Sunlight readability should be appreciated. 8/10
Battery Â– The first thing you will notice in the phone, it does not drain quickly. Lasts for 1.5 days, 25+12 hours with 4G internet, Wifi , gaming, Bluetooth, music etc. 10/10
Speaker Â– The output speaker is really good, gives crisp and clear sound. Mic & call clarity is also very clear. Very normal earphones, comfy for regular use. Music lovers should definitely buy some better headphones. 8/10
Camera Â– itÂ’s Â“ZEISSÂ” Â– simply remarkable, but only on daylight conditions. I felt the pics in the night (lowlight) times arenÂ’t very good but definitely not bad. 7/10
Transfer my data from Microsoft is best!
Apps support is really bad, Windows doesnÂ’t have Clash of Clans game, felt bad 
If you really need some clarity on the available apps, please browse all the available apps for Windows phone in google before buying. People say that Windows 10 upgrade will change everything, hopefully waiting for that.
Sometimes the bigger and broader size of the phone is a misery, to hold and operate in one hand is simply impossible, you may also drop it if you are very casually handling it.
Nothing else apart from these 
In my opinion, itÂ’s a better choice than Android. ( Android lovers - don't hate me )
windows 8.1 update 2 running very smooth & amazing without bugs, battery life is good, display & camera not bad ( good ), some HD format videos need converter, i recently update windows 10, its running smooth and almost without bugs, 640 xl lte dual sim is worth of money
I am using IOS and Android. I bought windows/Android china tablet and was happy with win 8.1 so I decided to buy windows phone. I read many positive opinions about this phone which encouraged me to go for it. Yesterday I bought it for USD 241.00 and was very disappointed. Email can't be printed. Internet Explorer can't print the web page and has no setting for internet option. The phone recognised the SD only one time and after can't Word application cant add picture. If I keep on installing 3rd party application, there is no space left. Today I sold it for USD 164.00. I will never repeat this mistake with windows mobile phones.
I don't know Why Microsoft looking for the other manufacturers for Windows phone Microsoft is capable to Manufacture good quality Lumia smartphone 640 and 640 XL popularity is the best example.Android is different .Different manufacturer's will customise its own UI according to their own way.Because they don't think Android own UI is perfect Someone like Android advantages of customise UI over the Android and Someone dislike such customisation of different UI over the Android.Thats why Samsung users didn't like to go for the other brand.And Nexus users and Moto users love pure Android experience and want to continue with the same devices.
After using Android,IOS & windows I just say that Windows phone is not the bad choice.It performs very well yes apps quality is poor in compare to IOS the best one in Apps quality and Android ,but overall performance is very good and I always spend quality time with Windows phone.I strongly recommend to buy Lumia devices especially 640 or 640 XL best among all Lumia divices.
