Microsoft Lumia 640 XL on Sale for $199.99



Microsoft is currently eagerly working on the next generation of operating system and means we are getting a completly overhauled OS for Desktops and Tablets as well as for mobile devices. This is also the reason why Microsoft is currently not announcing a new high end smartphone becaus ethe company will do this once Windows 10 has been released which will probably happen sometime around September. However Microsoft knows how to fill this spare time and therfore they have released a few really low priced devices with some very high sepcifications at this price tag.

The latest addition to this low range segement are the Microsoft Lumia 640 and its bigger brother the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. Both devices are now available for under $200 and this is a very good price tag for such a device. In case of the camera you are getting an 8 MP camera on the 640 whereas you get an even better 13 MP PureView Carl Zeiss Camera on the Lumia 640 XL. While both devices do have a pretty good camera on the back, you might go for the Lumia 640 XL if you use the front camera a lot though. On the XL which has a 5.7″ Display you get a 5.0 MP wide angle front camera while the smaller 640 with a screen size of 5″ does only have a 0.9 MP front camera.
According to an official statement from Microsoft earlier this year, both devoces will be one of the first to receive the upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile. Currently the are shipped with Windows Phone 8.1 GDR 2 and Lumia Denim.

If the screen size of 5.7″ doesn’t bother you I’d recommend you to choose the Lumia 640 XL over the 640. Not only because its smaller brother does have some weaker hardware specifications but also because the XL is currently available for just $199.99 at Expansys. Below you can have a look at a direct comparisone os specifications between the Microsoft Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL.
