    Windows Phone lacks a Z3 Compact or Galaxy Alpha equivalent - a pocket-friendly flagship.

    I might be interested in WP10 again after abandoning WP8 if a device for me were to exist

    Not sure why LG even bothered with this launch. Its lower spec than the Lumia 640 but the same price. The lumia 640 had a massive PR push from Microsoft and a full years subscription to office 365 included (at time of writing)

    Simple answer - the Lumia 640 is an AT&T (and those that use the AT&T network) exclusive. It will not function on the Verizon network, and they wanted their own Windows phone. Nothing more, and nothing less.

    I'm looking for exactly the same thing too. But getting LGs involvement can only be a good thing as hopefully there will be other models on the way.

    edit: we might be out of luck however - HTC axed their mini 'line' as their market is increasingly moving to 5.5+ sized phones*. What on Earth people?! Don't you carry your phone any more?

    HTC hasn't offered a proper mini phone. Like Samsung's Galaxy Mini line, their "Mini" phones have been 2 years out of date in terms of specs (e.g. S4 Mini is an S2 internally)
