  1. I’ve been using the Lumia 640 XL for several months now and it’s GREAT!!.

    I have always hated cell phones and only carried an old flip phone for emergencies if I was away from home.

    But I finally broke down and got a smartphone — the Lumia 640 XL and now I am a convert. So damn useful. I love to be able to sit in the living room watching TV and tell Cortana to remind me of something tomorrow at 8:30 and reminders pop up on my desktop and my Surface pro tablet as well as my phone. So whichever device I’m using the reminders pop up.

    I’m getting to where I fell half naked without my Lumia … but I don’t walk around with the thing plastered to the side of my head like so many people I see.

    But this is a very nice phone and I’m quite happy with it. I do wish it had a dedicated camera button and a bit more volume for alarms but overall it was a perfect introduction to smartphones.

    I am very glad I bought this phone.
