Our Microsoft Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL forums are now open! Join the conversation

This morning, Microsoft unveiled two new affordable Windows Phones to the Lumia family: the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL.

Both phones significantly improve upon their predecessors, the Lumia 630/635 and Lumia 1320, respectively with better hardware and fewer limitations. All with a solid price point for emerging markets and those on a budget.

These new Lumias are 'Windows 10 Ready' making them attractive choices for consumers, especially since the Lumia 640 XL goes on sale this month and the Lumia 640 in April. Did we mention the dual-SIM LTE versions too?

Join in our forums where you share your impressions, thoughts, wish-list, or post any questions you may have about either device. Did Microsoft fix the wrongs of Nokia with these releases? Sound off in our support forums!
