The Lumia 640 is a budget phone. There are some things that are not so happy with, such as lack of wireless charging, but all said it is a jewel in alignment with Microsoft.

Finally, the high-end moves further, and any replacement for the Lumia 830 is not (probably) be matched to the hardware for the Lumia 640. But here and now, that’s where we are, and that means sub £ 170 phone with very little criticism.

Lumia 640 offers probably the best compromise any phone in your price range. A good camera, excellent life of the battery, solid performance of the software and all without stealing your wallet.

Pound for pound, this could be the best value of Windows Phone for the money we have now. And that’s a pretty powerful success. It also makes us even more excited about what could still come in the higher end of the smartphones.

Its is still to be confirmed that Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE Dual SIM price and release date in countries like India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Philippines, Malaysia, Pakistan.
