Microsoft had a chance to get a good market share. But they ruined it by offering only 3G variant. No good 4G phone from Windows will reduce there market share

To all :
The specs of lumia 830 and all the 640 series are same as lumia 730 (except thr camera part).

If you want to buy lumia 640 dual SIM, better buy lumia 730 dual sim because it has carl zeiss lens and 5 MP front camera.

If front camera is not an issue, then buy Nokia lumia 830 instead of lumia 640 XL because lumia 640 XL does not have dolby sound enhancement and 16 GB internal memory.
