    I just bought my Lumia 640 XL. As I charge it for the first time, I tried turning it off but it did not, and instead it only restarted. Please provide feed back if this is caused by lack of update (my phone is up to date as per checking it on the settings and selecting the update option) or a defect so I can have it replace.

    Thank you for the info. Another observation, whenever I open a newly taken picture, instead of seeing the picture right away, I see a video which included moments prior pressing the camera (arranging hair, making poses prior to final pose and likes). So I see a video clip then a picture (actual taken). Is this normal?

    Appreciate all of your comments. I'm really a new lumia, windows phone user. Thanks!

    I guess you must be coming from Android? All windows phones will turn on by themselves once they are connected to power. Not sure why, but that's how they behave.

    Where can I find it? I did go to settings > photos + camera, but I cannot find the option to off the said setting. I selected the reset camera option instead.

    What is the purpose of this living image?

    It captures some moments before clicking pictures.. And after clicking you can adjust the brightness and other stuff as you want..

    Is that the setting for living images? I thought the wand thing is rich capture? I think he want to turn off living image, not rich capture. Have to go into camera setting in order to turn off living images.

    It's not Living Images as everyone says as Living Images feature isn't available for Lumia 640 XL. What happened is that - because you're an ex-Android - you long-pressed the capture button resulting in using Lumia Moments feature which records a video instead of taking a picture and then you're presented with the video frame by frame so that you could choose the best moment. Ankit told you to turn off the "wand" which is a feature called Rich Capture and you're probably have it turned off already. Rich Capture uses the best settings automatically to get you the best shot and the resulting photo takes a couple of seconds to process.

    Living images is available for 640 and 640 XL for sure.

    The long press capture action can be mapped to either video, photo burst or disable, depending in individual needs.

    These are why 640 XL is really a value for money model till date.

    640 xl is good to hold.. I got no problems keeping in my pocket (I wear skinny jeans).. One handed operation might be difficult while on the go but it has good grip.. Keyboard typing might be little difficult but it will be addressed in win 10

    Comparing to 1520, aka the Hulk of Windows Phone, 640 XL is much easier to hold. The "sharper" edges have better grips than the smooth rounded edges of 1520. Perhaps I have bigger hands, so one hand operations are no issue for me. Furthermore, the double tapping on the on-screen navigation bar can be used to turn the screen off. So, the double tapping gesture is what I use most of the time instead of searching for the power button for waking the phone as well as putting the phone to standby. :)

    Exactly double tap to wake up and to lock is a killer feature.. I hardly press the power button..

    Last question, I had couple of times when I unlock my phone, the background color is somewhat saturated, does anybody experienced it too? Is it defect? Sigh

    There is no defect... It's just a bug in windows phone which can be fixed in future updates.. Nothing will happen to the phone just lock and unlock the phone it will go away

    Using auto brightness may explain it.
    If you unlock the phone it "still" has to determine which brightness to use.
    So if you unlock it it starts with a brightness and then the auto kicks in and sets the brightness to a lower value so it look like the saturation changes but actual it is the brightness.

    OMG! I didn't know about double-tap to lock! Why Windows Central never mentioned it?
