It doesn’t bear the Nokia name but this 4G Microsoft phone benefits from its Lumia predecessors and adds a big screen for little money. The 640 XL has a 5.7-inch display, matching the size of Samsung’s Note, and delivers it in a body that weighs just 171g and features a removable cover, should you wish to swap batteries or add a memory card. Its 13megapixel rear camera is a highlight, offering an f2.0 aperture and burst mode, and its 3000mAh battery lasts beyond a long day. Compromises to achieve its $399 price include a slower processor, 1GB RAM, a lack of optical image stabilisation, and a 259ppi screen.
