Microsoft Lumia 640 XL LTE review: Big features, small price

 

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL LTE offers 4G speeds, a 5.7-inch screen and a great rear camera at a surprisingly low cost.

The Microsoft Lumia 640 XL LTE has a bright 5.7-inch screen, works on LTE networks, and has an impressive rear camera and long-lasting battery life.

The 720p resolution makes for a lower pixel density than you may want. The processor is a little under-specced for power-users, and the plastic casing can't match the premium feel of some phones.

It's no flagship, but the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL LTE offers a solid big-screen experience at a budget price point that's hard to beat.

Lumia 640 XL LTE review

 

If you're after a budget smartphone, then the biggest compromise you'll probably have to make is on the camera -- it's just not cost-effective to get the required lens in a cheaper phone. Luckily, Microsoft has found a way to put a quality camera in...

Review: Microsoft Lumia 640 XL

 

Microsoft's newest oversized Lumia phone has a great camera and a nice design, but it can't escape the confines of being a budget smartphone.

The best camera you can get at this price. Updated software brings cool features like Glance Screen, Kids Corner, and Apps Corner. Comes with one-year subscription of Office 365 included

At 5.7-inches, the 720p screen is a bit stretched. Daylight readability can be a significant problem. Microsoft has been cleaning up some preinstalled apps, and yet the Lumia 640 XL is still loaded with redundant bloatware

Microsoft's 5.7-inch Lumia 640 XL is big and cheap (hands-on)

 

This 5.7-inch beast of a midrange smartphone goes a step past the Lumia 640 in size and specs.

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL Smartphone Review

 

The mid-range giant. Microsoft's Lumia 640 XL with dual-SIM support is aimed at Windows Phones buyers looking for a low-priced phablet. To see if it stands any chance of success, read this report.

Removable battery, Exchangeable back cover, Bright screen, High contrast, Good viewing angle stability, Accurate color reproduction, Extensive software, High-resolution cameras, Dual-SIM support, Decent price/performance ratio, Good reception, Clear...

Colors in pictures sometimes oversaturated, Pressure on the screen becomes visible, Occasional lags during use

The Lumia 640 XL is definitely a decent Windows Phone 8.1 phablet. Microsoft installs a very bright, viewing-angle-stable screen with good color reproduction. Acceptable performance rates and high-resolution cameras complement that.

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL Review

 

Just last month, we got to experience the Microsoft Lumia 640, a budget-priced Windows Phone first introduced back during Mobile World Congress 2015. As a complement, now, its bigger sized twin is now available for the taking – bringing together a...

Decent camera quality ; Fair amount of value with its $250 cost ; Bright screen ; Light weight considering its size

Not a strong performer with graphics processing ; Speaker audio quality is strained

Windows Phones in general are in short supply, which means that we’re more accepting of phablet-sized ones even more, especially when they’re even rarer to find in the wild. Far from being a specs beast meant to tackle on the big names in space, the...

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL Review: Big Screen Without A Big Price Tag

 

We take a look at Microsoft's large screen budget smartphone in our Lumia 640 XL review and see how it stacks up against other Windows devices available on the market.

Battery life, camera, price.

Could use better speakers.

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL review

 

The Microsoft Lumia 640 XL gives you a smartphone with an enormous screen at a low price. Running Windows Phone 8.1, you'll find plenty of pre-installed functionality, although the third-party app market is limited compared with Android or iOS. Still,...

The Lumia 640 XL is more mid-range in price than the entry-level Lumia 640 . It shares most of the features that make the Lumia 640 a great budget choice, with the benefit of the super-size screen, a better camera, and exceptional battery life. The...
