Support videos posted for the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL
The Microsoft Lumia 640 XL is a phablet-sized version of the Microsoft Lumia 640. The handset features a larger 5.7-inch 720 x 1280 resolution screen compared to the 5-inch display on the Lumia 640. Besides the size of the screen, the Lumia 640 XL has a better camera on back (13MP) and front (5MP). The battery is also a higher capacity 3000mAh cell. AT&T will be offering both models at an undisclosed future date. While pricing has yet to be disclosed, we could see the Nokia Lumia 640 XL listed for as low as $220 in the states.

The two handsets were introduced at MWC, and this weekend Microsoft posted some support videos for the Lumia 640 XL. The first video shows the keys and parts of the phone, starting with the volume keys on the right side of the handset. The support video also shows us the power and lock keys. On the front of the phone is the proximity sensor and we are shown the micro USB port on the bottom of the handset.

The second video shows us how to insert a SIM card on the device. The phone has a SIM card slot (two, if it is a Dual SIM variant) under the battery. This means you will need to remove the back cover and remove the cell to access the slot. You have to do the same thing to insert a memory boosting microSD card. If you have the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL on your wish list, get a head start on learning how it operates by clicking the video slideshow below.

The price seems quite good, but the problem is its running WP.

It's not so bad. When WP10 comes out, I will likely get a 640 XL to play with. The huge problem to me is the app selections still, but I already have a great Android phone and I have this bad phone addiction that makes me want to buy a phone every once in a while.

Windows 10 will be the true change to make Windows smart phones great smart phones to have because of Microsoft Universal apps and their ability to share the same data across multiple Microsoft devices and a developer can make one app that with minor changes can work on a windows smart phone as well as a desktop Computer/Laptop/Tablet. however the most needed app is a Universal MS "Blue stacks" app than can run on a Windows smart phone. this app that you still down load from it's site enables full Windows 8 / 8.1desktop computer laptops and tablets to run "ANDRIOD APPS" if a windows 8.1 , windows 10 smart phone is enabled to run a Universal type "blue Stacks" app then the Apps gap will be greatly reduced. however open source apps can be dangerous because Hackers have a great knowledge how to make security risk or device crashing apps. that's why I donot use open source device although I may buy a used Android tablet to use non critical apps and games

why limit yourself to a android tablet when full pcs are cheaper? The app gap will surely start to shrink now that a universal app will run from xbox-pc-phone. Especially in the game department.

Since when did 5.7 inches become XL? 720p? So I guess Microsoft has decided that it can only sell Windows Phone at the low and middle price.

720p is works fine on a phone and helps with the battery life. Yes, Microsoft is targeting the low and middle end of the market. They are also targeting developing countries where the use of smartphones is increasing at a very rapid rate.
