Vodafone stocks budget HTC One flagship and Microsoft Lumia 640 duo

Goes after light users with Internet savvy smartphones

Vodafone is adding three 4G smartphones to its introductory plans in an effort to drive Internet traffic on its network.

The HTC One M8s and Microsoft’s Lumia 640XL go on sale today, while the Lumia 640 will be stocked later this month.

The One M8s is identical to HTC’s former flagship on the outside; it’s the Internal hardware that separates the two smartphones.

Changes include a Snapdragon 615 processor, which combines a 1GHz quad-core CPU with another 1.7GHz quad-core CPU, a larger 2840 milliamp-hour battery and a higher resolution 13 megapixel rear camera.

Joining the One M8s are the first two smartphones to don Microsoft’s branding, the Lumia 640 and 640XL.

These smartphones run on Windows Phone 8.1 and will be upgraded to Windows 10 for phones when it is released later this year.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
