    Placed an order for a white one last week but now im getting confused regarding the colors.

    I thought the white was only available as matte but according to the article on the first page it seems there is also glossy version. Pre-order specs just says "white" so I might change to a black just to be 100% sure I get a matte version.

    I have to admit, the 640XL sounds nice, but the reality is once you have the 1520 unless the screen is a problem for you, there is no better Windows phone out there.


    I see that I can get a 1520 on Ebay for about $300 factory Refurbished unlocked ..is that a better deal than waiting for the 640xl?

    I would say, depending on the seller rating, that, yes, the 1520 you're looking at is the better deal. :)

    I love the 1520 but Thinking about getting the 640XL on ATT. Nice camera, all the features in the display (double tap, glance, clearblack, sunlight enhancement), long battery life (13h on wifi, 23h on 3G), light weight (171g (same as 6 plus, 35g lighter than 1520), decent specs.

    The problem is deciding between the 1520 and the new 640XL. Used and older 1520 although STILL better spec'd than the new 640 XL. A new 640XL will get you a subscription of office 365 for a year, which I may do anyway. Decisions...

    I'll be getting the 640XL. I was initially hesitant about this as the true successor to my L1320, when I heard the name 640.. But the specs and features speak for themselves. This is in fact the successor. I think Microsoft is realigning their lineup and doing away with Nokia's way. So long story short, I'm getting this as soon as its available in my region. Only bummer is that it has a slightly smaller screen size than my 1320. Ain't no way I'm going back to a small screen device now.. Lol.

    For the price, I think the XL will be my next phone. My 1520 has the dreaded touch/scroll issue. After a year dealing with it I got an iPhone 6+. It's a very nice phone, and I like the frequency of app updates. But I am missing WP, and I have always preferred WP to iOS.

    I really need this phone to come out so it can hold me over until Windows 10 has a flagship device with a 5.5"+ screen. I have had the 1520, One M8, 830, and for some reason ended up with a 635... I love my 635, I just need a bigger screen, better camera, and a front-facing camera. Sounds just like a 640 XL to me. haha

    I'll be getting one for sure (two actually; one 640 and one 640 XL). I'm in search for a worthy replacement for my aging 820 and my mom's 920. I find this one to be the best choice of all other WP phones. Even my mom wants one (the cyan colored 640 looks really flashy). It's not yet released in Malaysia though, so I'll just wait then.

    I am definitely going to get the XL to replace my 925. I have been trying to use the new Moto E LTE for the past couple of weeks but I just can't tolerate such a small screen anymore. Plus the fact that the Android OS is such a clunker compared to Windows phone OS. I am hoping that T-Mobile will offer the 640 XL along with the standard 640. If not I will just buy an unlocked version online. Hopefully through Amazon.

    I hope that this week Amazon can at least put in on pre order like they have done in Germany with pricing being sub 200 pounds.

    Just looked at the Camera Specs of Lumia 640XL and Lumia 920 on Microsoft site. I am sure Lumia 640XL is going to give every one a great photography experience.

    The specifications are listed below :

    Camera Specs for Lumia 640XL
    640xl-camera.jpg

    Camera Specs for Lumia 920

    l920-camera.jpg

    They both have similar camera with Sensor Size of 1/3 inch and f Number of f/2.0. Low light photography will be very good on Lumia 640XL.

    I am on AT&T and currently have a Lumia 635 and HTC One (M8). Although both are fine devices, I really want a larger screen and better camera than what I currently have. The Lumia 640 XL appears to be super compelling and the highest quality 6-series device yet. I pre-ordered a Black 640 XL LTE from Expansys USA but will be keeping my eye out for a Cyan version. (Expansys USA does not yet list a release date or price, but I am hoping it is one of the first to start shipping it.)

    Lumia 635 vs 640 XL - the 640 XL has a larger screen with an oleophobic coating and much better cameras (635 doesn't have a front facing camera at all)

    HTC One (M8) vs 640 XL - the 640 XL has a larger screen and a much better rear-facing camera (likely due more to Lumia software and not necessary a much better sensor, but I have faith the sensor is better as well) and I also feel the HTC One (M8) screen is just too sensitive (not the same way Lumia screens feel)

    Up for pre order I think they overpriced it a bit for us UK residents with all that VAT rubbish.

    Can't you preorder it on German Amazon? Do they ship to UK?
    219 and 219 makes a difference...
