Meet 640XL
What's special with this phone aside from its huge screen size is is the camera. This boast that 13 MP Carl Zeiss rear camera that can take great photos even in the dark. I tried it earlier and I was amazed on how much detail and quality this one have. Then the front facing selfie camera packs a 5 MP wide angle sensor that's used with the older Lumia 535.

This smartphone also has tons of other cool features like...

Office Lens - that can scan documents like business cards and proposals and save it on one note or as a picture.
Dynamic Flash - this can adjust the flash lighting after taking the photos
Office 365 - we all know how good is this as you have access online and offline
Health and fitness app - where in you can schedule and plan your workouts and has that sensor with the same features of a wearable.

With that, I'm sure that this is going to be a big hit for those who like bigger screens and amazing camera without shelling out too much cash. Personally, it is also a lot better buy than the similarly priced Lumia 730 that's also impressive.
