    Hi. I am in hell and can't decide whether I should buy 640 XL dual SIM 4g, or 830 which this week only costs 204 in elgiganten Denmark.

    640 XL will cost 240 .

    I am afraid Lumia 840 might come out very soon?

    No brainer - the Lumia 830 is much better spec'd, costs less ... only negative is smaller screen. depends upon what you want out of the phone.

    As far as Lumia 840, if you're talking about a Windows10 replacement for the Lumia 830, that's probably (at least) 6 months away.

    The 640xl 's on ly edge is pretty much the larger screen, but at the same time the screen is also one of its disadvantages..The 640xl has a lower ppi becuae it has the same rest as the 830

    I'm more concerned with the fact that you're in hell and whether or not whichever phone you choose can be shipped there, but I chose the Lumia 830 knowing that the 640 was on the horizon. OIS and wireless charging alone would make me choose the 830, let alone the more premium, much more aesthetically pleasing design.

    I think the 830 has taken the crown from the 925 as the "all around" best windows phone... if it just had higher specs then it would be a killer WP flagship.. .specs (processor, resolution, etc) are really the only areas the 1520 and 930 beat the 830...
    The 1520 isnt for everyone, since it's the plus sized 930, also it has ghost taps,
    And the 930 has heat issues, terrible battery life, and according to most way too much heft for a flagship. ..while the 830 has every Lumia feature, just has lower specs.. .( which sadly make it miss "hey cortana"), but that's it

    Lol, made a special deal with the guys down there ๐Ÿ˜ Lumias allowed, as long as I don't take photos of them he he.

    Joking aside, I think you are right! 830 best choice until fall and a flagship hopefully ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Bought 3 Lumia 930, all had defects. Done with that ***** ๐Ÿ˜ 
    She might be beautiful, but boy is she flawed ๐Ÿ˜ญ

    Hey Cortana I will miss. Would also miss it on 640 XL as well. Can't get everything, well not now, damn MS.
