    Lumia 640 XL is going to be my next phone. I upgraded from a iPhone 5 to a Lumia 625 and I think it is great, fantastic battery life, quick performance, decent size screen (4.7″) and it was so so cheap. The only drawback has been the camera which is only 5mp with a very standard lens. Having got used to 4.7″ screen and the Windows OS, I recognise that my phone is now my primary email device so I am tempted to move up to something bigger. The 640XL with its 5.7″ screen and 13mp camera with Zeiss lens will fit the bill nicely. Even with the improved specs, it is still fantastic value.

    Lumia 640 XL, confused some sights say 5mp camera on here it’s a meaty 8mp. What is it 5 or 8. if it’s 8 then want it, 5 then i would get the cheaper 535, not much between them on spec and a lot cheaper. please let it be an 8mp camera

      640 xl: the “selfie”-camera is 5 MP wide angle, the main camera is a 13 MP.
      I don’t think you can compare the 535 to the 640xl, most prominently of all the screen is much bigger with the 640xl.
