Most underrated phones of 2015

What a year it’s been! We’re just about wrapping up 2015, and looking back, there was no shortage of top-tiered phones that crowded the upper echelon of the spectrum.

Nice to see the Microsoft Lumia 640 make the list, and, deservedly so. I purchased a Lumia 635 in January in order to become familiar with Windows Mobile and in anticipation of purchasing the upcoming Microsoft flagship. As the release date of the 950 was pushed back and the 640 became available in June, I bought a 640. Very impressed with the device as a whole (except for the bizarre occasions when the Edge browser refers to the Google Play Store for new apps!). I tried the 950. I couldn't make a case, at it's exorbitant price, to upgrade, so I bought a second 640 ($US 25!!!) that I really like.

You're lucky Here in Egypt the 640 was never release Only the 640 XL which has been released for the equivalent of 215$ but I think that is a lot to pay for a Snapdragon 400 Sure it is very smooth, but I feel it isn't powerful enough to last a couple of years
