Last week, Microsoft released their latest mid-range smartphones, the Lumia 640 LTE and Lumia 640 XL at Mobile World Congress. These phones aim to be tools for anything, from work productivity to just plain fun. Microsoft succeeds by detailing the phones with features like a speedy processor and a complimentary subscription to Microsoft Office favorites.

Both phones are powered by the lightning fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and run on Windows Phone 8.1 operating system with the Lumia Denim update (with both upgradeable to Windows 10 when it becomes available later this year). They come equipped with 1GB RAM, 8GB of storage, and access to 30GB of OneDrive cloud storage. The goal here is for users to work and play side by side with ease. Cruise the web, text clients, playback video memories, and sync documents and photos across devices. Plus, the Snapdragon processor supports impressive battery life which can reach up to 23.7 hours of talk time or 39 days of standby time.

The main difference between these two devices is that the Lumia 640 XL sports a larger 5.7-inch HD display. The larger screen canvas is great for getting work done, whether editing documents or just checking emails. The 5-inch Lumia 640 LTE is aimed at users who prefer a smaller phone. Both devices boast polycarbonate bodies available in cyan, orange, white, and black matte.

Notably, the phone comes with a free one-year subscription to Office 365 Personal featuring Word, Excel, OneNote, and the rest of Microsoft’s well-known apps. With all these features, it’s easy to work on the go. If you have a Windows PC, you can easily sync up your phone and computer.

Microsoft is expected to roll out the Lumia 640 LTE and the Lumia 640 XL globally in March, with more details still to come.
