Unboxing and tour of the new AT&T Microsoft Lumia 640 XL

Starting late last week, those on AT&T were finally able to get their hands on the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. The phone features a rather generous 5.7-inch display and by all accounts it is a winner. We managed to pick one up and figured we would unbox it and give you the full tour.

We already reviewed the Lumia 640 XL for Europe. However, this one has LTE on board and obviously works on the AT&T network. Retailing for $249 off-contract or just 99 cents on, I have to admit that this is a really nice phone. Indeed, the 5.7-inch display seems to be the sweet spot between typing and carrying it around.
