Being released in 2015, Lumia 640 XL has been able to become a very popular device among the middle class consumers. Thanks to its great design, decent battery and affordable price tag. In this article, you will find a detailed Nokia Lumia 640 XL review covering all the pros and cons of the device. Take a look at it.
Nokia Lumia 640 XL Review: Design
Having a weight of only 171g, the Lumia 640 XL is really comfortable to carry in your pocket. It has a thickness of 9mm, which is quite acceptable for an affordable device. Its back has been constructed with plastic. It is very sturdy and really pleasant to touch. As a result, it gets a positive feedback in our Nokia Lumia 640 XL review.
Nokia Lumia 640 XL Review: Display
The 5.7-inch IPS LCD display of the Lumia 640 XL has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It results into a decent pixel density of 259 ppi. It may not be the sharpest smartphone display in the market. But it indeed makes everything look enough crispy. Its color looks very vibrant.
Nokia Lumia 640 XL Review: Camera
The 13-MP rear shooter can take decent photos in good lighting conditions. However, if you look at the captured images carefully, you will find them a bit noisy and under saturated. The performance in the low light condition is really impressive. The shutter is much faster than the other similar smartphones. More specifically, it is considered as the best one in its category. The performance of the 5-MP front shooter in capturing selfies and making video calls is quite acceptable. So, in terms of camera performance, the device deserves a positive feedback in our Nokia Lumia 640 XL review.
Nokia Lumia 640 XL Review: Hardware and Performance
Being equipped with the Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB RAM and Adreno 305 GPU, it cannot show a blistering performance. But it definitely can operate at a decent pace. Performing basic tasks, like surfacing online and checking emails, we never experienced any lagging issue. It also shows a good performance playing old games, like Asphalt 8: Air Borne. But you definitely cannot compare the performance with the high-end smartphones, like Galaxy S6.
Nokia Lumia 640 XL Review: Battery
The 3000 mAh battery is pretty decent. Running Asphalt 8 for an hour, it drops only 15% of charge, which looks very impressive. It can make a day comfortably, depending on how you use. But like the other smartphone batteries, it is very likely to be required charging every night.
Nokia Lumia 640 XL Review: The Verdict
The Lumia 640 XL may not be a high-performance smartphone. But it has a solid design, a colorful display, great cameras and a decent battery. More importantly, it is being tagged with only $288. So, it is definitely a great value for your money.
