Microsoft might have designed the budget ware Lumia 640 sensibly in a poly-carbonate body and stunning rear case, but the Windows 8.1 is one blockade that the phone could not compensate for.
For starters, we loved the viewing angles of the screen as well as the clarity of pictures we took with the Lumia 640, but again, the OS was a letdown in the age when we are so happy with Android. Surprisingly, the biggest snag came about when we realized that the phone can barely support very basic apps due to the lowdown of the Windows 8.1 system.
A Deeper Look
Only 8.8 mm in terms of thickness, the Lumia 640 is an easy deal to carry in your pockets but we expected more speed that are missing due to an average quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400. Even the 1GB RAM size is a low point of the Lumia handset though the phone tiles on home screen work just about fine.
As for the contracted pricing, pay as little as £14 per month to avail Office 365 Personal for one year as well as most Microsoft applications toped up with One Drive. Still want to buy the Lumia 640? Wait for sometime before you do!
