    Ok guys first off ... It would be great if real life users share their experience. I own a Lumia 820 currently and planning on an upgrade. The options are 640 xl new or good condition used 930 ( cost about same where I live ). SO HERE IS THE REAL QUESTION. I love 930 its screen and performance and everything about it . The only thing which is holding me back is battery life . I want to know how much battery life i would have to sacrifice if I buy lumia 930. Keeping in mind i am a very heavy user .. (3d games with data on almost full day). Dont care about expandable storage. And if i go for lumia 640 XL what can u say about its gaming performance i.e. asphalt 8 & royal revolt 2 ( playing them all day). Plz help me out here guys.

    I think the comparisons are obvious:
    The 930 has
    - faster processor,
    - 2GB memory (as opposed to 1 on 640),
    - 32GB on board vs 8 means you run games from phone vs sd card
    - better camera, if that matters to you
    - wireless charging (very convenient)

    The 640 XL has a bigger screen.

    The 640 has a LCD display, and the 930 has an AMOLED. That is a personal preference, and I go back and forth on them. When I have an LCD in my hand, I like that more, and vice versa, which really means they're both good.

    So - do you want a 5" or 6" screen?

    Will you LTE on the 930 where you are? How about the XL?

    When I had a 930, I got about a day out of it. I have a 640 now (not XL), and I get about 1 1/2 days out of it.

    If you play 3D games 24 hours a day, I don't you're getting much battery out of either of them.
