Lumia 640 XL looks like a winner

by Volker Weber

The 640 XL looks like an interesting compromise. 5.7" screen with a low HD resolution, expandable storage, replaceable 3000 mAh battery and shell, 13 MP camera, all of that in a midrange device for 189 € (3G) or 219 € (LTE), plus taxes minus subsidiaries. There is also a smaller 640, 139 € (3G), 159 € (LTE), with 2500 mAh battery and 8 MP camera. I would choose the XL any time.

Only the OS is horrible....A lot of apps will never be made for Windows (Home automation, etc). I have several customers who started with Windows Phone because is was prommissing. A few returned all devices.....other has stopped buying new and started with IOS and Android.

Volker, do you know of any other new Lumias about to be released? I am about to order an 830 (actually had one already, but had to RMA it cause it didn't recognise any SIM cards), so maybe I should wait? I a guessing the product cycle could be about time.

Thinking about my question, I will answer it myself: "First: There will always be new models about to be released. Second: vowe doesn't tell any secrets, it would taint his reputation, so don't ask." OK, then I won't ask.

Nothing I could share. But it's quite obvious that Msft needs a new flagship. That will come with Windows 10.

Looks linke the XL could outrun the 820 of my girlfriend for a lower price. Maybe it will be a good time for a change

The 820 is quite old by now. And big is good. Microsoft's big problem is that Androids are getting way cheaper and cleaner. Motorola is now well known for pure Android Lollipop.

Well, delaying the new flagship phone actually makes sense, if it comes with features that require W10.

USB 3.1, digitizer pen, fingerprint sensor,...??? Everyone is free to take a guess.
