Well Worth the Wait

I grew tired of Android ages ago. I do not appreciate how difficult it was to get software updates, how the end-user has limited control over his/her device (eg. You can’t uninstall bloatware that come pre-loaded in your phone. You can’t move all apps to SD card. You can’t take screenshots). Sure, rooting is the way to go, but as an end-user, I never had the time nor the inclination to jailbreak my phone and risk bricking a 19k device. iPhones reminded me of cute poodles in Ritz lobbies. They look good, cost a bomb, and don’t really do much.

So I started following Microsoft closely. Their acquisition of Nokia meant they were very serious about their mobile business. They had India as one of their priority markets, considering how they started launching devices here before mature markets like the US and Europe. And I found in Windows, a sincere attempt to give the users complete control over their devices. Things I couldn’t do in Android without rooting my phone, were basic and built-in features in Windows. I watched as Microsoft launched the 535. The device was a bit too low range, so I waited for their next launch. 640 and 640 XL were announced, and I knew I was going to get the 640 XL. Sure enough, the device blew past all my expectations. * Great build quality. It’s got a premium feel to it. * Camera is out of this world. Zeiss is no joke. * Call quality, display quality, performance – all get 5 stars. * Battery is a mammoth. I can go 1.5 days on low usage, and 1 day with heavy use. Cons: * Accessories provided are basic. No USB cable, and the earphones are not the best. Anyway, I don’t think this is an issue, since manufacturers build the cost of accessories like premium earphones, SD card, USB cable, etc. into the net cost of the device. I prefer to pay just for the hand-set and chose my accessories as I please. Overall: I waited a long time for this device. I can tell you it was well worth the wait.
