Microsoft continues to buy time with low-and mid-range models in anticipation of Windows 10. Lumia 640 is one of the better, especially if you want to use the Office 365.
Windows 10 come in summer. Until then, it is about buying time for Microsoft. Windows Mobile 8.1 does not support the 64-bit processors that are in the modern top models, so the spring’s effort from Microsoft are two models in the lower price segment. The large Lumia 640 XL and the smaller Lumia 640 tested here.
For me had it been another number less. With 5-inch screen on a phone which is neither particularly thin or narrow frames around the screen, it becomes a large phone in hand.
Believe it or not, but the orange Lumia 640 that we received for the test is even more orange than its predecessor Lumia 635. The sides are made of some kind of half-transparent glossy plastic that gives the color even more … luster. Seriously, when I try to take close-up shots with the camera becomes the motivation behind orange simply because the color glow and reflected on the subject. As usual, the phone even in more discrete black or white, but for some reason the test specimen that Microsoft (and Nokia before them) sends out in orange.
Otherwise looks well phone out that Lumia-phones made since first beginning, which on the one hand, distinguishes them from most other manufacturers, but on the other hand, makes them difficult to distinguish. It doesn’t get any easier for the system to Windows 8.1 offers a very similar experience, regardless of mobile. Of course it is something positive, that we at budget hardware, a user experience that is perfectly OK, but it makes it harder for a poor critic to say something you haven’t already said about five other Lumiamobiler over the past year.
Microsoft Lumia 640 settles in the upper layer in the Microsoft budgetdjungel. The performance is nearly identical to the 500 kronor cheaper Lumia 535, but you get a larger, and considerably better, screen.
Resolution 1280 x 720 pixel is fully enough to look good on a 5-inch display, and with former Nokia’s Clearblack technology becomes darkness black even though it’s an LCD screen. The viewing angle is perhaps not the very best, you tilt your screen a little sideways shift rapidly in brightness. But at this price point is the screen above average in quality.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset, mobile is 400, which by now have almost two years old and has managed to get both one and two sequels. Although it delivers the performance that can be considered acceptable, even if the user interface does not just fly up when you swipe across the screen. A plus is that the phone has 4 g for fast data speeds over the mobile network, even if it now is not entirely unusual in this price range.
If you’re thinking both on the phone and subscribe to Office 365 if you are lucky, for a one-year subscription is included in the phone’s price. Office 365, Microsoft’s Office suite Word, Excel and Powerpoint as a subscription service, but it also includes a terabyte of cloud storage in one drive and 60 Skypeminuter to common net per month. This normally costs 600 dollars, so if it is something you need, this is a incredibly affordable phone. Already using Office 365 extended your subscription time by one year.
The camera is a bit of a disappointment when it takes pictures that are not better than one might expect of a 1500-kronorsmobil. It is faint and would launch photo lamp as soon as it gets, and has problems with focus in close-ups, but outdoors in the sunlight, the results may be perfectly OK.
There’s nothing really stands out positively with Lumia 640, and unlike Microsoft’s mobile phones for around a thousand patches, the competition is harder over 1500 SEK. There are plenty of alternatives to cheap 4 g phones, and Microsoft Lumia 640 is not the obvious choice.
An alternative: 4 g for around 1500 kr
Motorola Moto E and Sony Xperia E4g are two examples of successful 4 g phones that are cheaper than this.
The dinosaur is not orange, it is the phone that has as strong color that illuminates the subject.
