You can also purchase the Lumia 640 XL for $0 down on an AT&T Next plan, paying $8.34 per month with 30 device payments on Next 24, $10.42 per month at 24 payments on Next 18, or $12.50 per month at 20 payments on Next 12.
I had a chance to use a pre-production version of the Lumia 640 XL a few months ago and loved it. First off – it’s 5.7-inch ClearBlack IPS LCD HD display is quite nice. After living with a 6-inch Lumia 1520 for a while now, I’ve grown accustom to having a larger phone. The Lumia 640 XL is only a tad bit smaller than the Lumia 1520. The Lumia 640 XL isn’t a slouch either – it comes powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. For storage, you get 8GB of internal storage and the ability to add up to 128GB of additional storage via a microSD card. However, it’s the camera on the Lumia 640 XL that really hooked me. It has 13-megapixel rear-facing camera that includes auto-focus, ZEISS optics and an LED flash. Oh yeah and if you’re into selfies, it has a nice a 5-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera too.
The Lumia 640 XL comes with Windows Phone 8.1 (Lumia Denim Update) which includes Cortana, Action Center, Word Flow, and more. It will also be upgradeable to Windows 10 Mobile too when its released.
I would highly recommend the Lumia 640 XL if you’re on the market for a new phone with some great features at an affordable price. I’ll be hitting up my local AT&T store on June 26th to pick mine up!
