By Rich W Woods NOTE: I wrote this a long time ago when I was reviewing the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. I found it in my drafts and thought I’d publish it. You may be noticing that I’m comparing the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL to flagship devices. Actually, I started by comparing it to the Nokia Lumia 635, while piling on the Nokia Lumia 1320 and Lumia 830.

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL Coming to AT&T in June for $429

By Rich W Woods I was getting ready to send back my Microsoft Lumia 640 XL to Microsoft and that involved a trip to the AT&T Store. The Lumia 640 XL uses a micro SIM so I needed to convert my second phone line to a nano SIM. I had a little talk with the salesman. We’ve known that the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL is coming to AT&T for about a week now. We didn’t…

By Rich W Woods My two weeks with the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL are coming to a close, but I have enjoyed every minute of it. After all, the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL is a fantastic phone, and I’m going to go so far as to say it’s the best Lumia on the market. The battery life is the best I’ve ever seen from a Windows Phone.

By Rich W Woods My two weeks with the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL is almost over, but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. In this review, I explain why I think the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL could possibly be the best Lumia on the market.

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Comparison

By Rich W Woods Yesterday, we compared the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL to the Nokia Lumia Icon. The results were surprising. While the Lumia Icon clearly beat the Lumia 640 XL in terms of performance, the Lumia 640 XL had the better camera. Now it’s time to compare the Lumia 640 XL to the legendary Nokia Lumia 1020. I’m not expecting the Lumia 640 XL to outperform the Nokia Lumia 1020. The Nokia Lumia 1020…

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs Nokia Lumia Icon Comparison: (Spoiler: The 640 XL Wins)

By Rich W Woods This is my last week with the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. One thing that has become clear is that this is a flagship camera.

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs iPhone 6 Comparison

By Rich W Woods Since receiving the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL last week, the most requested comparison I’ve received is for the iPhone 6. After all, the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL has a pretty awesome camera. It stands to reason that we compare it with one of the best non-Lumia cameras on the market. I’m not going to be able to compare benchmarks. There are really no comparable benchmark apps between Windows Phone and iOS….

Nokia Lumia 635 vs Microsoft Lumia 640 XL, and the Nokia Lumia 1320 Too

Nokia Lumia 635 vs Microsoft Lumia 640 XL, and the Nokia Lumia 1320 Too

By Rich W Woods I love the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. I have been having so much fun with it. Technically, it’s the successor to the Nokia Lumia 1320; however, we didn’t see a lot of the Lumia 1320 here in the United States. The only carrier that saw it was Cricket Wireless, a small carrier. Needless to say, I don’t have a Lumia 1320 to compare the Lumia 640 XL to, so the next…

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL Unboxing and First Impressions

By Rich W Woods The Microsoft Lumia 640 XL is here! I loved the Microsoft Lumia 640; however, I’ve really been looking forward to the Lumia 640 XL for a number of reasons. Well, one main reason: the camera. The front camera blows away the Lumia 640 with the higher resolution. The rear camera is better as well, as it has a larger sensor and a larger aperture. As far as I can tell, there…
