Like I mention in the Sony Thread.... they can market it as a superb can fly can swim device.... but if they don't bring the damn thing in.... we can only drool and wow over the internet.... we don't get to own it.. they don't get to sell it... the market share won't increase....

Unlike maker like Sam...... they tickle our balls with the next model... get you excited.... saliva dripping... within month... they are on the shelf....

Waiting for Windows phone is like 牛朗与织女......... got to wait long long....
Ya. You got a point there as well. I thought only flagships will be slow, but seems like every model is a slow coach for MS. That's not good at all.

Was told, the wait for flagship device will only end when WP10 is officially released.

So for now, we can only hold on to our existing flagships or temporary find one mid range device to play with - points to the Lumia 830.

Hi Kopi22,

yes there will be no hardbutton for camera on the Lumia 640 or 640XL.

The quick launch would be on the LIVE TILE or the "short-cut" button if you have set your device to Windows Phone 10.

The phone is due to be launched this week, 18th April 2015 with one year free Office 365 (IMHO is the killer freebie) + 12 months of 60mins SKYPE Intl Calling + 1TB of OneDrive Storage.

Priced at S$429, it is truly gonna be a highly competitive phone for the market.

We have tested out the phone's camera, it is definitely decent enough, plus the front camera is like the Lumia 730 - superb for selfies. (though I must say, SELFIE TAKING IS A DISEASE! Stop taking selfies!!!)

Any info on telcom offers? If the XL will be priced for 100$ in my current plan, I might get this and just buy the flagship phone in full price on W10 launch.

My 920 (I might have been dropping it more now just to have an excuse to get a new phone but the damn thing keeps on working) contract was finished last December and I need to play with a new toy.

Wow... 640 is really much cheaper.... I was expecting XL to be less than 400 though...

Regardless, XL is a very attractive mid-tier model. BTW, where can I purchase one without contract? I'm still trying to make up my mind between Cyan or White....

The last we spoke to MSFT guys, these devices will be available island wide with major telcos.

And confirmed that Lumia Stores will be selling them.

Of course, u can check your friendly handphone dealers like @Adix82 if he is bringing them in?



As for me, I am gonna get 640XL. Size does matter.

Ditto. I'm used to the size of 1520 and Note 4. 5" is just nice for one hand operations, but the camera is not up to my expectations. XL it shall be....

Waiting for @Adix82 as well.... Got most of my phones from him.
