    Hey guys, i'm looking to buy a WP after seeing how fluid the system runs on a budget Phone, the Lumia 532.

    I'm looking for a mid-range phone at the moment, till the 950 arrives in my country. I also thought on getting the Lumia 930, but it's out of stock in almost every store in my country.

    I'm using an ASUS ZenFone 5, and i never had any issues with this Phone till now, the battery draining fast it's one of them.

    After seeing some reviews, i'm confused of which phone should i choose, the Lumia 640 XL or the 830?

    830 is a bit fancier physically with wireless charging, a metal frame, a lower resolution but otherwise better camera, a camera button, etc.

    The XL lasts longer, is larger.

    Performance should be the same.

    I can't stand phablets so I'd go 830.

    If similar price, 830. If the 640XL is significantly cheaper, that, since it's an interim phone until the 950 arrives.

    I have the 640 XL unlocked, and I can vouch for it. Runs well for the money, $300. Also got the MS Wireless Display adapter. Runs well on newest build. I also got a really good rugged leather holster for it also. Accommodates up a 6" phone with case or small tablet. It was originally designed for the Galaxy Note 5 with case. It will accommodate the 950XL with case when I get it. :D

    But if you can wait, hold out for the 950XL. Phablets FTW!!!
