    Me ! I'm getting a 640XL in white ! I currently use a Lumia 1020, and am quite happy with it. But I wouldn't mind having such an excellent mid-ranger to play around as my secondary phone !

    My contract will finish in July, but I already can extend it now so I wait for the release of this phone. This will be my W10 phone and my Samsung Ativ SE will stay my 8.1 phone.

    I'm getting 2 for my parents. They've been using NOKIA's dumb phones for too long. It's time to convert them to the modern world of technology.
    P/s: Remember folks that the 640XL's camera is not Pureview but it does indeed have better front camera. How I wish my 1520 had that front camera. I hope that the 1540 will come with a 5 or more MP with wide angle and full HD and a good battery to support it, as my battery dropped 9% for 1 hour video chat on Skype, which is pretty good to me. But the 1520's camera is 1.2 MP, so...

    Should we consider it a true successor of Lumia 1320?

    I think definitely apart from the Snapdragon 400 processor everything else is spot on up against the ageing 1320

    I'll be buying A 640xl in white or black. I have a 920 now but I'll get this then buy a flagship in the fall. I'm really excited about the dual sim LTE version due to being Canadian our voice/data plans suck or you can never get services (Wind). I'll have one data sim with a tablet plan and a PAYG for phone, I never use that many minutes a month. I'm really pumped for this!!!

    I love this phone. I recently got a Lumia 635 which is a great phone, the 640 XL is the perfect phone for me. I'm more of a Mid-Range user and for the price and the specs this phone feels like a steal. I only have 2 issues the first is a hope they release the green shell for it eventually cause the one I have on my 635 look amazing. The second is I haven't seen any mention of the 640 XL coming to Sprint, hopefully the closer they get to the release date they say something and it comes sooner then later. If this bad boy does come to sprint I will give back my 635 and upgrade to this in a heartbeat.

    Even though I really wasn't massively interested in a large handset I'm starting to sway toward the XL.
    Very good option over the 640 for $60-$70 USD more.
    The con of this phone for me is no Wi-Fi calling unlocked on T-Mobile.

    ​If this is the case, then this is the only mid range phablet, we will see from Microsoft this year

    I think we need to wait and see to early in the year to predict. I'm sure there is another phablet in the works towards the high end range taking over from the Lumia 1520. What I guess is that it wont be the 1530 or 1540 as such but Microsoft will follow this new naming convention and call it 940xl who knows?

    So far only NA is covered, will import when HK has some. For nl630 running w10 is doing the job albeit with hiccups!

    Definitely getting that 640XL can't wait to get off this 635. The 640 XL basically has everything I want 3000 mah battery, pureview camera with flash and a 5mp front camera. Can't wait for tmobile to give a release date
    It's not a pure view camera is it?? I don't think it is??

    The only issue that I have with Cricket is no Internet sharing, I won't be with them much longer simply because of that. Another three weeks and I can get the unlock code for my 1320.

    Hopefully I can find an unlocked 640XL from a source other than an American carrier.

    I am very excited about the 640XL... It seems like the perfect phone for me. I don't want to get caught up in all the "Flagship" specs. For what I do with the phone it seems perfect. I have made the switch from my IPad and MacBook Air to the Surface Pro 3 and the correct windows phone will complete the transition.

    I am worried a little because I didn't like the HTC M8. I can not say exactly why. Most people thought that it was a great phone. But. I am determined to keep trying phones until I find the one that works best for me.

    Do we have any idea of a release date and which carriers in the US are going to carry it???

    I'm tempted. I hope that Windows 10 will have a Google Voice app/client.

    The 640 XL looks very nice.

    However, a used 1520 for maybe $50 more may be a better option for me.

    I would love to have that too. Or else Skype launches GV competition.

    in terms of the image quality the camera can produce, and processing speed.
    do you think this is a good replacement for a Lumia 920?

    the Qi capability has not yet been determined but if I could get this for less than $300 unlocked, dual sim, lte
    it could be a great mid range phone to hold me over until a flagship finally surfaces.

    thoughts on if its worth replacing a L920 with it? (my 920 still works fine, its just aging, and a lot slower than the current phone market)
