    I got this phone about two months ago for $125 from Harvey Norman, locked to Vodafone, unlocked for free.

    It's a great phone.

    • +1

      $125 for an xl is a steal. Even that's a good price for the 640 let alone the xl.

    • +3

      I think you mean the non XL version ?

      • +1

        Sorry, I'm silly. Yes, it was the non xl version

  • The non XL optus prepaid version is $129 at Kmart at the moment.

    • Post removed.

  • Nice phone and OS. A refreshing change after being on Android for 5 years and prefer it over my Sammy Note 4.

    • +5

      The phone and OS is great but the lack of apps is not. The Microsoft App Store doesn't seem attractive enough to developers. Mind you this was 8 months ago, not sure if they have improved the App Store.

      • +3

        I agree that lack of apps is a big issue. But its not just lack of apps, its about apps having the same features as the same app on ios and android and having bugs fixed in a reasonable timeframe. For example the tenplay windows phone app is completely broken for 2.5 months and with no signs of a fix. There are multiple complaints in the store and on whirlpool with the same issue as I have.

        But when I'm about to lose heart in regards to the app situation I find out the Cricket Australia has brought out an official universal windows 10 app. Haven't used it as my phone isn't on windows 10 yet but its nice to see a major app come to windows phone and pcs for that matter.

      • From my experience most of the apps on Android are buggy, not working properly for me it takes hours to find a good stable app. So now I'm gave up on apps and and using the phone for it is main purpose, and don't bother about apps anymore.

  • I recieved one as a eval. I realy loved it i am not a huge fan windoze on a phone. But put performed the similar priced android devices. I bought one as a travel ☎.

  • How is email for power users? I had a quick look in store and the email app seemed really…big? Maybe good for reading emails from friends. Outlook on iOS is good, can you get that same app?

    Also how is the pixel density can anyone comment?

    • +1

      "720p at 5.7-inches isn't the highest PPI around, but that's not to say the Lumia 640 XL has a bad display. Far from it. Deep blacks and bright colors make for a good viewing experience all round."

      259 PPI

    • I like the built in email system on windows phone. Outlook will come with windows 10 upgrade (dont know when that will happen. But some time next year).

      On windows phone 8.1 you have to go to settings > accounts and setup all your accounts. You get different icon for each account in apps section. you can pin to start screen and see which account got how many mails.( i use small tiles) I dont think there is a way to unifiy emails to see email from more than one accounts in one place.

  • Consider the lack of apps, $200 is the maximum I'd like to pay for a Windows smartphone.

  • +5

    All the most important apps are on the store, sometimes they are third party.
    Of Course if you are looking For a phone with thousands of silly games and farting apps just look somewhere else. Had the non xl for 6 mths as main phone and I love it. Battery is great! Camera non bad as well!

    • Some of us mainly use apps for productivity purposes, and windows phone often falls short in that category.

      • All the most important apps are on the store, sometimes they are third party.

        Being a recent convert to Windows phones, regarding applications I only have one gripe; the lack of a decent email client. The ones I have found are useless if you are using POP or IMAP accounts because they delete the emails from the server (in my experience) when accessing the account. Love to be proved wrong.

        Cheers

        • +2

          you can change the POP/IMAP settings to either delete on both, delete on one .. just a setting

    • Do you ever worry about your privacy when giving out your passwords to a third party? I found that really put me off Windows Phone when having to use a third party app for a good Gmail client.

      • Yeah that concerned me too

        • +1

          Thanks for the reply. Glad I'm not the only one. Even though Google's not perfect I trust them more than some third party developer.

    good value for money
    love windows phones

    • +2

      love windows phones

      Yea, I've become a convert over the last month. I never quite got what critics meant about android phones being "clunky", but I do now.
      Anyway, we've ordered one of these 640XL today for my partner.

  • +4

    I second that love the windows phone using a Nokia 1320 great battery life still after 12 months

    • +2

      Same here, got it from the $289 mobileciti deal back in….oh damn may 2014, i didnt think i'd been using it for that long. Wow 19 months. Batery still gets me 2-3 days no problems.

  • +4

    My experience with Windows Phone:

    Pros:
    - Good battery!

    Cons:
    - Apps. Forget it. Also if there are apps, forget using any widgets; they are pretty much useless if they are implemented.

    Just use it as a phone with internet capability, nothing more, and you'll be fine. (I'm looking at you old people)

    • You'd prob be surprised but I've never used an app before lol so not just for old

    • By widgets I think you mean live tiles?

      • Ah yes that's it. Live tiles.

        Different from widgets, live tiles offer no functionality; they only display info.

        For example, the default SMS app can show a preview of a recent SMS. If you tap it, it's like tapping an icon - it opens up the app.

        Similarly, I recently got a Flashlight Windows app… the Flashlight widget, you'd hope that tapping it turns on the flash. Nope, it opens the app. Useless, it's pretty much an icon.

        • +2

          The flashlight icon is going to be part of the quick actions from the action centre in the upcoming windows 10 update for this phone.

          The apps thing has never been an issue for me. I can do online banking, stream music, edit photos, eBay etc . Unless you're 10yrs old I don't see what all the fuss is about the apps. It seems like the cliche thing to say when a windows phone is mentioned. lol

          @pufffdragon:

          I see that we have a windows fanboy defender here…

          You've mentioned online applications instead of apps. Fair enough, but there are some things that they can't offer, like choice of usability. E.g. Why use reddit's shitty mobile experience, when I can get a better user experience with one of redditd many app? It's not always about games and 10 year olds, you have no clue.

          Also quick actions… I haven't had any experience with it so no comment, but sounds like there are still no widgets. Only icons that look like widgets.

          Anyhow… Regarding this deal, it's a good price, but it's got the limitations of being a windows phone. Can't really compete with androids or ios, but it's a simple, solid operating system. That's all.

        • @inose:

          Quick actions is just a copy of Android quick settings tray. It should have been better implemented in an earlier version of windows mobile. However on current Windows Mobile the flashlight toggle lags and is poorly optimised, I suppose that's to be expected on a beta versions of os though.

          I was finally happy that Windows mobile got cricket Australia app, I didn't think I'd see the day that would happen. Now Windows phone users can take advantage of the year free cricket streaming from Optus. All I need now is an nba app, banking app, Facebook, Facebook group app, gumtree app, a decent torrent app, and Spotify. :)

        • @pufffdragon: I agree. We don't use thousands of apps. But when someone want to buy a phone and he/she see that wp have missing apps while android or ios have them, its natural to go towards more apps.

          Most of the time people with smartphones(no matter the OS) don't install any new apps except for few social apps like Facebook and skype.

        • +1

          @inose: Ha ha, Definitely not a fanboy. I just prefer the windows OS after using IOS and Android for so long.

          If the flash light is within the quick actions, there's no real need for a widget or an app. How many different apps do you need to turn on a light anyway. If I want a strobe light and flashes per sec and other lighting effects, I'd definitely go for android. lol

          I understand what you are saying with the reddit example but not everyone wants the same thing, just like not everyone in the world uses reddit.

          At the end of the day it's about using something that works best for you. Peace man

  • Just nipped into dick smith they matched the $233

    • why u do that, now you miss out of free delivery and cashback

  • I'm impatient :)

    • Fair enough :) You sound like me

  • MS needs to get a grip and stop releasing a whole army of snapdragon 400 phones. SD400 is what powers sub-$100 phones like the zte buzz and huawei y550.

    For more than $200 they should at least put in a better SoC.

    • Those phones got the better s410 chip actually.

  • bought from dick smith just a month before for around 280…wish i had waited bit more…great phone.. had 920 before… i am very happy with windows phone. had enough app for my use.. at 233 its great value!

  • +1

    Great phone but don't break the screen.. That'll be an expensive fix..

    • Yeah, probably cheaper to just buy a new 640XL…

  • Bought one last night and had it delivered today.
    Nice phone thanks for listing the deal. :)

  • Anybody know the Microsoft Model Number (i.e. RM-XXXX) - There are a few models available and noticed there are some 3G only 640XL's…
    I just picked one up from Expansys (640XL Dual SIM, 4G LTE Unlocked, RM-1096) for $247.50 (incl 10% off coupon)

    • Dunno what model num but all Australian stock of the 640 XL Is 4G, If you aree buying a grey import that's when you need to know

    • Local stock are single sim I think. mine from OW is RM-1064. 4G

  • How long does it take to charge this phone from 20% battery left, to full?

    my bro in-law wants a last longer battery phone (3-4 days or more) with fast charging (not more than 2.5 hours charging)
    Only using the phone for SMS, Whatsapp, Phone and light gaming. budget under $250

    • +1

      the charger that came with it is 750mAh so pretty shit, took about 4 hours. use a 1A or 1.5 you can prob get it down to 2.5h easy.

      Battery does lasts a long time especially if u use dark BG.

      I bought one today, don't like lack of apps and stuck with IE.
