sanjay mandal, 21 Jul 2015windows is better than android....price cut option is very good...now every one can use window... moreEnough with the hyperbole. It's a good phone, but not a great one. For the same price you can get a Zenfone 2, a mid-level android, which has much much better specs and is an all around superior phone, but for maybe the camera. You can also get a whole host of older flagship phones for well under $200 new on ebay that are still much better phones than the 640 and 640 XL. The LG G2 for one, the Droid Maxx for another.
Kuloskap, 22 Jul 2015These two 640 models sold by Expansys USA were built & intended for sale in other countrie... moreTwo international varients do support all GSM LTE signals in the US and you get a 6 month warranty, plus some people claims Microsoft says you get their full warranty.
These two 640 models sold by Expansys USA were built & intended for sale in other countries. They do not include a manufacturer's warranty, and don't support all of the high-speed (4G/LTE) bands commonly used by major US carriers.
mir 2.0, 21 Jul 2015The lowered prices can only mean that the sales are not so good. Maybe even dismal. Understand... moreThats ur thought. Go and check out the user review for the phone who actually bought it and used it. Both are amazing phone in the price range with the quality where other cannot give. I live in india and got 640 after 3 week after booking(since it went out of stock two month back after launching the device). Unlike US more people in india buy Lumia. price reduction is not because of these phone not doing well, Its because they want to increase market share and going to release new device with windows 10(even thought 640 and 640XL are the first device to get windows 10 update).
windows is better than android....price cut option is very good...now every one can use windows...i use lumia 720,and xolo omega 5...both device are good..but android is very much laggy device....android want more space,more ram, but 512 mb ram is enough for windows....windows run smooth,thats like i use 64 bit octa core processor....
If anyone wants a good and afordable MS phone this is a great opportunity.
I've got an Lumia 640 4G at launch (cost me only 80 euros with no contract but sim locked to Vodafone) and it is amazing for the price.
The Qualcomm SoC is no powerhouse but the OS and programs runs super smoothly, plus the HD screen it's better than many mid/high end devices out there (thanks to the new IPS LCD screens MS uses). Also its a big screen even on the non XL model.
The battery lasts a long time even with LTE access and gaming.
I'm very pleased with this phone (upgrade from a Lumia 520). I only wish some Android low end devices had this hardware quality.
Very nice to have discounts on these phones. Now that they're even cheaper than they were, more and more people will buy them.
The fact that this is a mid-low range Windows phone which works better than any mid-high range and even some high range Androids, should be a good enough reason for most people to buy it. Plus they will be upgrading to an advanced, smart and beautiful UI and leave the boring static icons behind.
The lowered prices can only mean that the sales are not so good. Maybe even dismal. Understandable, since these phones are not even good.

The 640 XL is also their deal of the day on Expansys' Hong Kong website, only 1395 HKD (about $180 USD).
