Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs. Lumia 640 Specifications, Features
The Lumia 640 features a pocket-friendly 5.0-inch IPS LCD display, packed with 1,280 x 720 pixels screen resolution. This display combination translates to a pixel density of 294 ppi. The Lumia 640 XL comes with a huge 5.7-inch display, but the resolution is same as the Lumia 640. Therefore, the pixel density stands at 259 ppi.
Both devices are powered by a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 400) processor, running at 1.2 GHz and backed by 1 GB of RAM. These handsets run on the Windows Phone 8.1 OS. The Lumia Denim software update also comes bundled with the OS package.
Both smartphones come fitted with 8 GB of internal storage space, in addition to a microSD card slot for expansion of up to 128 GB. Plus, both the devices feature Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect the screen and the much-appreciated ClearBlack display technology to offer a better viewing experience.
The budget-friendly Lumia 640 houses an 8 MP rear-facing camera and an LED flash, whereas the bigger Lumia 640 XL sports a solid 13 MP unit with Carl Zeiss optics and LED flash. But the Lumia 640’s front-facing shooter is a letdown, as it features only a 1 MP sensor. But then, the jumbo Lumia 640 XL comes with a gracious 5 MP snapper unit at the front. Lastly, the smaller sibling comes equipped with a modest 2,500 mAh battery unit, while the bigger one sports a relatively better 3,000 mAh.
