    I am currently using a Lumia 720 and is getting the feeling of upgrading to another Lumia. Although I had quite a lot hardware issues with my Lumia 720 and it was in for repairs two times I am still enjoying it, but I am on the lookout for something new for a change again.

    I am looking at the Lumia 640 LTE and although there is some hardware performance differences I am a bit skeptical between the cameras. The Lumia 720 has Zeiss optics and a lower megapixel compared to the Lumia 640, but how is the photo quality compared to the Lumia 720? I like to take photographs with my Lumia 720. I don't want to pay a arm or a leg for my cellphone and feel the Lumia 640 is in a sweet spot for a cellphone.

    The reason I am asking is I have a Acer Z500 phone with a 8MP camera and the Lumia 720 camera is kicking butt between the two cellphones.

    I just don't want a cellphone then I am worst off now with the Lumia 720.

    Looking forward to your responses!

    The Lumia 640 actually has a pretty great camera for the price. It's one of the, if not the, best cameras you can get in its particular price range. At least this holds true in my experiences.

    I'm not sure where you are in the world, but the 735 has a slightly better camera with Zeiss optics if you are willing to pay more. That aside, as Zachary said, the 640 cameras are nice for the price range.

    Also check out this great thread comparing the 640, 735, and 830 cameras with samples of each in different settings: http://forums.windowscentral.com/dev...735-830-a.html

    That was a pretty good camera test. I have the Lumia 830, Lumia 640, and Lumia 520, and the Lumia 830 is by far the best camera out of the three, but the Lumia 640 is perfectly usable.
