Microsoft Lumia 640 Smartphone Review

 

Middle management. The Lumia 640 improves upon the predecessor in several areas. The middle-class smartphone features swappable covers and very decent software - but is that good enough to beat out the stiff competition?

swappable back cover, battery is removable, dual SIM cards, diverse software package, good GPS location capabilities, takes good photos in low-light conditions, precise touchscreen, bright display and pretty accurate colors, good speaker, good voice...

fairly high power consumption, front-facing camera is almost unusable, details in photos often washed out, no USB cable included, speaker can sound muffled at times

More RAM, a front-facing camera, higher resolution - the list of improvements is pretty long when we compare the Lumia 640 to its predecessor. An update was sorely needed to keep the phone competitive and Microsoft delivered. Despite the...

Microsoft Lumia 640 Review: Cricket’s scrappy cyan warrior

 

The Microsoft Lumia 640 isn't all that remarkable on its own. It's another Windows Phone device, made by the people who up until this past year were known as Nokia. Now it comes from Microsoft, and it's ready to roll for a cool $130 USD. That's a good...

The value of this device is in its ability to provide calls, popular app access, and photos, all at reasonably fine quality for a rather low price. If you’ve never owned a smartphone before, this might be a great time to have a peek. If you’ve owned a...

The Microsoft Lumia 640 Review

 

The group that was once Nokia's mobile division has gone through a great number of changes in the past few years. After declining sales of Symbian devices, the company decided to go all in with Microsoft's Windows Phone platform. In a very short time,...

It's honestly impossible for me to form a single opinion of the Lumia 640. I'm thankful that we don't operate using some sort of rating system where I would have to. Smartphones are comprised of many parts, both hardware and software, and all these...

Microsoft Lumia 640 review: It's the practical Windows Phone most people can afford

 

You get Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, but the phone cuts some classic Lumia features to keep its price down.

Aside from the caveats I’ve listed above—especially the limited storage—I see nothing truly wrong with the Lumia 640. I just think that you’ll be happier with the Lumia 830.

Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE Single Sim

 

The Microsoft Lumia 640 is a bit different however. It's running Windows Phone software, made up of big, colourful tiles that will come as a refreshing change to anyone that's become a little jaded with Android . It has a great 5-inch display, 4G LTE...

Both the screen and camera are among the best you'll find at this price, you can swap out the back panels for fresh colours, and the Windows Phone software is easy to use.

The front camera has a very poor resolution, the battery life is short, and the under-stocked app store won't please anyone wanting the latest apps and games.

The great screen and camera make the Lumia 640 a brilliant phone for anyone on a budget who wants an alternative to Android -- so long as you aren't too bothered about apps.

Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE Review: A Very Affordable LTE Windows Phone

 

A couple months ago we reviewed Microsoft's Lumia 640 XL, a large screen Windows Phone without the big price tag. We've been using the smaller sibling of the 640 XL for the past few weeks now and see how it compares in…

The Lumia 640 LTE is a great and affordable budget phone with a decent screen and outstanding battery life and great performance. If you’re looking for a budget or starter phone, and have been considering a Windows Phone, you’ll want to consider the...

Microsoft Lumia 640 Review

 

In this review, we're putting the Lumia 640 through some testing to see whether or not it's something that can pique the interest of consumers. At the very least, though, some might be instantly dazzled by its hard-to-beat pricing of $129.99 as a...

130 cost makes it extremely affordable ; Distinctive Lumia design with bright color options ; Same camera app experience as other high-end Lumias ; Call quality is pretty clear

Underpowered rear speaker ; Choppy performance with gaming ; Soft details with 1080p video recording

Everyone is eagerly awaiting for the next-gen Lumia smartphone, the one that’s specs heavy, feature-rich, and heavy handed against the competition. Well, we’re going to have to wait longer because the Microsoft Lumia 640 isn’t that handset. Rather,...

Microsoft Lumia 640 review: one of the best values in mobile (again)

 

A very capable midrange Windows Phone with an attractive price.

SensorCore, pedometor, NFC, Miracast support ; Decent camera with Rich Capture features ; Good screen & pixel density ; Removable battery ; Replaceable battery covers with multiple color options ; Comfortable ergonomic form factor & design ; Great...

Old version of Glance Mode doesn’t show as much info ; Low resolution front facing camera ; No wireless charging option ; Back cover seems to scratch easily ; Spare BV-T5C batteries are expensive and hard to find ; Index

The Lumia 640 has all of the features you would expect from a smartphone that’s twice the price. It’s got 1Gb RAM, a decent 8 megapixel camera, front-facing camera for video calls, a high resolution screen with practically print quality pixel density,...

Microsoft Lumia 640 review: Impressive device, affordable price

 

The Lumia 640 isn't a perfect device by any means - but Microsoft has built a truly impressive low-cost smartphone, with a beautiful display, decent camera, solid performance, and superb value.

Given how many low-cost handsets Microsoft has introduced in recent months, it would very easy to overlook this one as just another cheap Windows Phone. But do so, and you’ll be missing out on a very capable device. Indeed, all things considered –...

Review: Microsoft Lumia 640 for Cricket Wireless

 

Microsoft packs a lot of power in the potent, pocketable Lumia 640. This Windows Phone handset offers more bang for the buck than most other handsets in Cricket's varied lineup.
