    I have no clue, as I said I have never even unlocked an android phone let alone got a comment on lag. The guys was speaking with is a professional coder, he said don't look at anything less than snapdragon 400 for android. I have the 200 in the 535 and no issues at this time on win 10.
    I don't wish to throw gasoline on the fire here, but someone on another thread posted a link to a review by Anandtech. It is the first of any direct comparisons I recall seeing, and it does kind of back up what I've said that I don't think Android would perform worse than WP on the same hardware. Of course it is not exactly the same hardware, but comparing the 640 to the Moto G and Moto E, which have the similar specs, Android was at least as good if not better in most performance tests, including the browser. It was also comparable in battery life, and better in standby time. In any case, it's a good read.

    It is a multi page review, but the link takes you to the system performance part of the review.

    Thanks for the link. That review is brutal, didn't expect Windows Phone to be this far behind Android in terms of performance.

    I think a good review would be on how both phones run after two or so months of use not just showing the benchmarks.

    Thanks for that, interesting read, through a bit surprised, my Lumia 535 sure does not feel slow, and that's coming from an iPhone 5.

    That's the caveat with benchmarks; what happens on paper is sometimes different than what happens in real life.

    True, that then makes comparisons even harder, benchmarks do it but are not 'real world'. I'm just gonna go with the subjective win 10 is vastly better to gooogle M ;)

    It might be at RTM, but it certainly isn't better in preview form! ;-)

    Best thing about Android M: Doze!
    Best thing about W10M: Continuum, Windows Apps and New UI.
    The UI is new? Not from the videos I've seen and screenshots.

    M is slight improvements over lollipop, I like the new option to restrict apps to your phone.

    W10 I like the universal app design with the pc and tablets

    The Microsoft Lumia 640 Review

    Let me start this by saying I am not a fanboy of anything, and have owned a lot of Android phones. My main line is a s6 in fact.

    This said, when it comes to Windows phone, hardware stats and apparently benchmarks are meaningless. I own a lumia 640 as my business phone, and it is very fluid, very consistent, and fast at everything except loading non ms apps.

    When my s6 is working properly and not lagging, yes, it's stupid fast and nothing can touch it, including the nexus 6 I recently sold. However, key word is when. It randomly gets laggy, stuttery, janky. It's running 5.1.1.

    Every time I pick up my 640 I know exactly what I'm going to get. The s6 is a crap shoot. Sometimes it's a beast. Sometimes it's a laggy pile of crap.

    Btw, I don't see some of the complaints in that review. Stutter when pulling down the notification shade? My 640 definitely does not do that.

    Android 4.4.4 was outstanding. 5.anything is like Vista or ME. It's just terrible and can trip up the s6's silicon which is ridiculous.

    Random note: I'd buy a s6 running wp10 in a heartbeat. It's an incredible piece of hardware. The screen and camera tech are both absurd. Too bad the software lets it down.
