    well coming from a Grey Blu Win HD LTE and just left it for the lumia 640 for at&t... The lumia is better just because of the touch screen alone and how responsive it is... i can type fast and the phone will keep up... on my HD LTE it would sometimes not register my touch inputs and and i would have to type slower than i normally would... As for as processor goes i run all games i ran on my WIN HD LTE just fine and it runs great... grab the Lumia 640 cant beat the price and the performance...
    You know I heard that about blu phones. I had briefly considered the HD LTE only because it had such an amazing design(I chose the 640 XL instead) but I heard that for whatever reason the touch is a bit off in the Win HD family...it was supposed to have been fixed/improved on the LTE version but it appears not.

    Glad you like your 640 :)

    The xl is a great phone. My main two complaints are I hate onscreen navigation buttons and it lacks the super sensitive touch that my 1520 has but I'd definitely say it is my second favorite lumia device I've owned. And I've pretty much owned every flagship lumia just about tbh.

    I may have to switch to the 640 and sell the xl only because I am now with T-Mobile and their coverage sucks in my house and the xl lacks wifi calling since it is not a T-Mobile branded phone therefore it would pretty much be useless to me now unless I switch back to att Gophone


    sent from my iPhone...asking myself why I own one

    Damn that sucks bro and so does T-Mobile lol... But getting the 640 is not bad trust me... Only difference is the smaller screen size but the speaker is louder on the 640 than 640xl

    Well I went from a 6 inch Lumia 1520 to a 5.7 inch Lumia 640 xl to the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 lol. I think o have started getting used to iPhone size because holding my 1520 has me asking "how the hell was I using this phone for nearly two years." Lmao it is still the best windows phone out there. So I think size wise I will be alright with the 640

    I wouldn't say tmobile sucks but where I live it is either extremely rural or if I Am at my other house it is like a black hole. Even Verizon suffers as does att. Dropped calls galore. But there is literally no service with T-Mobile there lol

    My main concern with the 640 and why I chose the xl over it initially was due to the fact of vanity lmao. The ffc is only 0.9 haha

    I'm looking to get a new budget phone up here in Canada. I've read the limited reviews on both these devices and I'm having a real tough time deciding still. The Blu is $219cdn ($240cdn w/ taxes) on ms store but I'll have to buy and import a 640 via ebay ; that will cost about $180 - $200 cdn all-in.

    I could really use some advice now that these phones have been in hands for a bit longer than the initial reviews.

    I'm not to worried about the camera, both seem fine for my minor needs.

    I love the Blu design and hardware specs but some talk about the screen and keyboard has me worried. The Lumia apps are enticing but I'm not excited about eBay buying and US carrier branding.

    I need help!

    I've been using the 1st gen Blu Win HD for about 3 months and am very happy with the performance and prompt software updates from Blu. Please do not try the Windows Insider app. I did, and it has caused some issues. I was too curious, and nit sufficiently cautious. Once wp10 is officially available I expect these glitches to be resolved. I have a 640 in transit, and will be able to compare. One will be my daily driver, and the other will be my backup (no land line). If you can wait a few more days, I'll be happy to share my opinions...

    In the last week I've proved why it's important to shop for the network first, phone second. I switched from AT&T to T-Mobile and my experience has been night and day. 640 on AT&T sounded worse than the HD voice, WiFi calling enabled 640 on T-Mobile. Even when I'm not on WiFi and not talking on HD Voice, it still sounds clear and amazing.

    Really a shame that T-Mobile stopped selling this phone. I bought the last one at my local Wal-Mart and signed up for a prepaid plan. With Data Sense and Wifi at home and the office I expect to not need a regular plan for some time.
