If you’re looking for a good Windows Phone phablet, the US Microsoft Store is currently offering a $100 discount on the Lumia 640XL (via Neowin). The 5.7-inch handset was introduced just a year ago in March 2015 along the smaller Lumia 640, and the $199 phablet is still a good deal if you can’t afford the more premium Lumia 950XL which Microsoft is currently selling for $649.
