Those looking for affordable handsets can always count on Microsoft (previously Nokia) to offer some great options. Some of the best options, in fact. We are at Mobile World Congress rushing through press events and getting you all the goodies. Right now it’s Microsoft’s turn, so let’s take a look at their brand new Lumia 640 smartphone.
Nokia Lumia 640 specs
- Windows Phone 8.1
- 5-inch 720p display
- 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
- 1 GB of RAM
- 8 GB of internal storage
- 8 MP rear-facing camera
- 1 MP front-facing camera
- 2500 mAh battery
- 141.3 x 72.2 x 8.85 mm
- 145 grams
This device follows the same design language Nokia created. Its plastic body comes in multiple colors and offers a minimalist, yet playful design. The phone feels good, but it won’t win any build quality awards. Truth is it doesn’t need to, as it does get credit for offering a great bang for your buck.
Because it uses Windows 8.1, you also can’t really notice that it has these mid-end specs. The device is responsive and snappy. The display also happens to be pretty good for an affordable handset. It has a 720p panel, which is pretty crisp for a 5-inch display.
Once again, you won’t get the best out of this smartphone, but we believe it offers more than what you will be paying. Oh, by the way, the price is set at 139 Euros. You can also get the dual-SIM, LTE version for 159 Euros. Both iterations launch in April, so get your cash ready!
