The display is very good. The blacks look really deep and the viewing angles are also very good the only thing lacking is the corning Gorilla Glass.

GPs is also available on this device. Coming to the camera you have 8MP primary and 5MP front camera, you have the manual control of the Lumia camera. But it takes a little time to capture images. The pictures captured with the primary camera is ok and the front camera is pretty decent. The primary camera outdoor picture quality is ok but not accurate it seems to sharpen images a little and  noise is intruded very easily. Then this, the Lumia 640 seems to have a better camera. Coming to the video playback quality you really can't play any full HD videos. The UI has been improved very much and making easier to use, you can search settings which are categorized. Actually, the device is pretty locked up in playing games too like Asphalt 8 and dead trigger. It is playable but seen hiccups. Web browsing is also stutter. And it feels slightly overpriced.
