Features of Microsoft Lumia 640 XL –
- Design & display – The 640 XL has a solid built using nice plastic and a wrap-around polycarbonate back cover with a variety of colours to choose from. The back cover feels thick and durable. There are no squeaks when pressing the phone hard. The battery is also removable.
- The 640 XL has a 5.7-inch 720p display which is good when it comes to the colour reproduction and viewing angles but the pixel density could be better and it is not noticeable while viewing pictures or videos but when you start reading text then you can feel the difference.
- Performance –Even when the Lumia 640 XL has very standard 1.2 GHz snapdragon processor with just 1 GB RAM, the phone is capable of doing what an Android phone having 2 GB RAM can do. In terms of performance the phone delivers well and the multitasking is as smooth as anything, enjoying high end games and playing HD videos are also within the phone’s reach.
