Hey, I purchased Microsoft Lumia 640 XL last year. One of my friends recommends me this phone. Around 2-3 weeks of using I really enjoy this phone. battery works perfect, the camera is awesome, very smooth running windows 8.1 & the best thing on 1GB ram it wasn’t hung and run very smooth. I really enjoy this phone. But when I update windows 10, my phone becomes very slow and hang. Sometimes apps not open and if open than automatically apps shut down. I don’t why what’s wrong with Microsoft. I have to reboot my phone once in a day otherwise it can’t access.
So, sometimes it’s annoying. I purchased this phone in 15000. Frankly, say I waste my money on this phone. I mean in this price you can buy a good phone, like Xiaomi or OnePlus etc.
The features I liked most,
Camera: It has a kickass 13MP primary camera with LED flash and 5MP front facing the camera. The quality of the pictures is awesome. And the best thing you can also click pictures in manual mode.
Display: The display is awesome. It has IPS LCD multi-touch & capacitive touchscreen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, 259 PPI pixel.
OS: Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, please don’t update your phone to windows 10. It sucks.
CPU: CPU is quite good 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad core processor.
RAM: Great performance on 1GB RAM. I appreciate that. This makes Windows Phone better than any Android phone.
Memory: 8GB internal memory expandable up to 128GB.
SIM: It’s a Dual SIM phone and both (GSM+GSM).
Battery: It has 3000mAH lithium-ion battery. The battery performance is awesome. The 2nd most thing I like in this phone.
Network: Talk time of 30 hours 18 hours on 2G & 24 hours on 3G networks and standby time of 888 hours. And make sure it is not a 4G phone.
Warranty: 1-year manufacturer warranty for device & there is no issue of warranty. So, don’t worry.
Wireless communication: There is not any issue with Bluetooth & Wifi Hotspot.
1st thing I don’t like about it is there are no choices of useful applications. I’m missing some important applications.
It has 5.7-inch (14.47 centimeters) display, It is very big and sometimes you can’t take a selfie & there are no any settings for shutter like volume button or something. So, If you want to take a picture you should press the shutter. So, I think size matters in this phone. :p
CPU: Actually I don’t like it because for this price you get 1.8GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 hexacore 64-bit processor with ARM Cortex-A72 lead cores, in android.
SIM: This is not a 4G phone. In this price, you get the good 4G phone.
OTG connection: There is no OTG connection.
In my opinion, I’m giving It’s okay rating because some features I like most. Frankly, saying please don’t buy it & in these budget, you can buy best android phones.

Remove Album: Goto left the bar and select the album which you want to delete. Secondary click on an album and Delete Album. But make sure photos will not delete. You can find those pics in Photos.
Search pics by Keywords: If you want to search a pic, but you have a huge collection of pics then this trick is for you. You have to a keyword to same types of pics. So, when you search a pic then you have to enter a keyword and you can find pics very easily. For that 1st you have to go to View and select Metadata and make sure you check Keywords, otherwise, it can’t work. Now, select the pic which you want to add tag and secondary click on it and select Get Info & Add a Keywords. If you want to open those pics go to search bar and enter that word which you enter as a keyword & It will show you all pics. In this way, you can add a keyword and you can easily find pics.

Make a Time Machine Backup: If you lost all your Mac data or any issues with Mac then If you don’t have any backup of your data or pics then you lost them forever. So, make sure you have a backup of all your Mac data. If you don’t know how to backup then Click here!
Buy More cloud Space: Actually, Its a better option, because 1st you save your money & 2nd you can sync these pics with iPhone, iPad etc. you don’t need any external hard drive with you all time. So, I think it’s a better option. You add all your pics to iCloud but as we know, Apple gives us only 5GB cloud space for a free account. So, it’s very small space. But if you want more space then you have to buy from iCloud. If you purchase more iCloud space then pay 4$ per month & you will get 200GB iCloud space. In my opinion, it’s the best idea to purchase more space and you whenever you want. It’s very simple! To buy open iCloud and click on Manage & select Buy More Space.
So, these are some tips & trick of Photos. I hope you like it. please leave comments. Share If you like.
