Earlier this year, Microsoft launched two new affordable handsets: the Lumia 640, and its super-sized sibling, the Lumia 640 XL. Despite being aimed at more budget-conscious buyers, we found there was a lot to like about the two handsets - but the sheer size of the 5.7-inch XL was enough to make quite a big impression.
And from its big, beautiful HD display and strong performance, to its high-quality 13MP camera with ZEISS optics, rock-solid build quality, and stunning battery life, the larger Lumia 640 XL certainly proved itself as a hugely competent all-rounder in our detailed review of the device.
If that's not enough, as an extra bonus for the already-likeable 640 XL, Microsoft has said that it will also be one of the very first handsets to be upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile.
Now, one of our lucky readers will get the chance to enjoy Microsoft's massive and marvelous smartphone for themselves. We're giving away a fiercely orange Lumia 640 XL worth £219 ($339 USD), along with a 64GB SanDisk Ultra Class 10 microSDXC card!
The device is brand, spanking new, but it's also UK-spec - that means there's only one SIM slot (and a UK plug!), but on the plus side, you'll get 4G LTE connectivity. But don't worry; the handset may be UK-spec, but our giveaway is open to all of our readers across the globe.
There are plenty of ways to enter, and several opportunities to gain extra chances to win! For this giveaway, we're using Rafflecopter to help us track the entries, and to randomly select a winner.
