Customers who are looking for a budget smartphone probably realize that the biggest compromise is the camera. However, it seems that Microsoft has found a good way to integrate a quality camera in its newest device, without releasing it with a big price.
The new Microsoft Lumia 640 XL LTE comes with a 5.7-inches display and features 4G connectivity and a 13-megapixel camera on the rear and 5-megapixel camera on the front. It also homes a 3,000mAh battery inside. The best part is that this new Lumia 640 XL LTE comes with an incredible price of just 240 dollars.
To be mentioned that there are also a couple of different variants of the new Lumia 640 XL, including one without LTE offering and one with a dual-SIM model. In a market filled with black smartphones, this device from Microsoft manages to stand out and offers an exotic new look. Even if clients could also purchase the black or white model, the cyan color is quite nice and refreshing.
This device measures 159.9 x 81.5 x 9mm inches and weighs 171g. The casing of this handset has a matte finish and offers a good look, compared with piano-finish that collects a lot of fingerprints. Like many other Lumia models, the case pops off to allow access to the MicroSD and SIM slots. This means that users could also replace the case with any different color. Compared with other high-end brands, like Galaxy S6, Xperia Z3 and HTC One M9, this handset feels a little plastic and toy-like, but it’s actually a very solid made device.
To be mentioned that this new Lumia 640 XL LTE doesn’t try to match with other premium flagship phones. Actually, at the cost of one 32GB Galaxy S6 Edge, customers will be able to buy three Lumia 640 XL devices. However, Lumia comes with something that many other devices are lacking these days: a microSD slot. This handset is powered by a 1.2Ghz Snapdragon 400 processor, accompanied by 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage that can go up to 128GB via microSD slot.
