Cricket is currently selling the Microsoft Lumia 640 priced at $129.99 with no contract obligations. We can observe a noticeable price increase here since previously, when the device made its first and very short appearance on the US Microsoft online store, it was labeled with the price tag of $89. Currently, the AT&T’s subsidiary, is offering the Lumia 640 exclusively in cyan color option, however we can assume that with time the carrier will add more color variants to its lineup.
What’s even more interesting, if you purchase the handset before June 30, you will additionally receive a one-year Microsoft Office 365 free subscription, which regular retail price rates around $70.
Moving on the Lumia 640’s list of specs, the phone except for a generous 5-inch 720p display offers its users a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor complete with 1GB RAM and 8GB of built-in storage.
Optic parameters are represented by an 8-megapixel main rear-facing camera with LED flash and a 0.9-megapixel shooter located on the front. Furthermore, the handset will be kept alive by energy generated by a rather moderate 2,500 mAh battery.
Running Windows 8.1 the Lumia 640 comes equipped with support for 4G LTE network, HERE Maps & Drive and a personal assistant, Cortana. It should be also mentioned that the handset is promised to be one of the first phones to get the Windows 10 update, which is scheduled to pop the market this summer.
Summing up, the Lumia 640 appears to be a great option when you looking for an affordable mid-ranger running Windows platform. It isn’t only packed with specs that any other mid-ranger won’t be ashamed of, but it arrives labeled with a really competitive price tag. So far, it is available exclusively via Cricket’s online store, however it is expected to join the AT&T, T-Mobile and Metro PCS soon. Any takers?
