after a so long wait MS release a phone with a shabby spec and no innovation model is as good as having feature of 2013-2014 mobiles
The company wants to sell Lumia and expects to survive in market with pricing strategy of Apple (first high and then reduce the price, you are not Apple in this market segment)
MS grow-up the cost of phone is not even worth 8k INR
being a fan of Nokia and now continuing with the MS its disappointing to see such immaturity being shown by company towards its slipping customer base
Stop comparing it with android. You dont need last 999x core CPU and 999x GB of ram to use it.
You pay for build quality and design more than performance (which is very good).
Yes, the price isnt real. It should come down in the few weeks.
Microsoft Looking for money only. I think, they don`t want to keep market. This model worth for around 10k.. Suppose we need android operating system, the same configuration we will get around 7k itself. I don`t know why microsoft keeping price this much for this model. Even Apple 5S also we will get for this same price.
a question for someone is using that phone (lumia 650)
what about the battery life
it runs out fast or not and how much it last with a medium use
Microsoft must study Indian market first.If windows phone os is the best in the world this kind of pricing is reasonable.But it's not.Here you get a phone with an entry level chipset(weak too)for Rs.16000.And it's not a full hd display,only hd.Are you fooling customers,Microsoft?
There are a lot of people here talking about the phone without even using it. All you talk about is specs,specs,specs, and have no idea how this phone performs and how great impression it leaves on the user. I own it (as you may guessed), and as soon as you lay your eyes on it's beautiful screen, and on it's great build quality, you forget that it has S212. It works great and it looks great. I think that not so many phones at this price range have such great build quality. Battery life is just fine, it lasts easily throughout the day. I would recommend this phone to everybody who are not looking for high end performance. So glad I bought it.
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2016I am using LG Nexus 4 from last 3 years successfully with no issue in it, at that time it cost... moreYeah, but that's android, not windows phone, you don't need a 32 core processor and 128gb of ram for windows phone to work properly, and most of the people checking out this post, is not interested about low quality android o.s^^
abhi , 07 Apr 2016There is big difference between Lumia mobile and android mobile...
I bought Lumia 520 on 2014 ... moreI am using LG Nexus 4 from last 3 years successfully with no issue in it, at that time it cost me 24k with far better specifications that lumia 650 today even.
With these specifications the price tag is too much, and that too its the last phone under this flagship.
Hilarious they are providing 2000 mAh battery these days when 3000+ is comman.
Nor Microsoft is able to cope up with app upgradation.
Can't take the risk with this phone.
Dear Microsoft please reduce the price otherwise your market share is not gonna increase
And Must Updated windows 10 Becouse Aftre Updated wqindows 10 In My Lumia 540 Ohone Is working Very Slowly And Bad Exprience In Microsoft Egde It'e Better Is Internate Explorer..I Have Use Airtel 4G Conectivity But Still My Download Speed Is 300 Kbps. There is Hige Problem.
MS has a differential pricing policy by which it makes its devices dirt cheap in the US while makes money from developing nations like India even if most people wont buy a MS WP in India they will fleece those who dare to use their products and thus offset some of the loss they make in their home country
I did my R & D...Microsoft ...please put Clash of Clans and other apps...you still didn't learned a lesson from your previous model..
There is big difference between Lumia mobile and android mobile... I bought Lumia 520 on 2014 jan it will be work fine to till... But my friends are buying 2 and 3 android mobiles in this period... Lumia 650 is my next mobile...
Dear Microsoft please reduce the price otherwise your market share is not gonna increase.
@Arjun Really?? that's why windows OS have a market share of 3% lol...
i see all spec comparing to my lumia 640 dual.
the main highlight is Battery,camera,because
640 has 2500mah and 650 has 2000 only , and camera both are 8 mp why lumia do this price is very different na , but it has 5 mp front.
other than i am very much happy with windows go to it feel the great . thats what i tell.
as long as the phone is snappy there is nothing to worry about specs. windows 10 is so damn fast. and my phone only has snapdragon 400 chipset. any other phone with this chip would be a nightmare. don't worry and buy. you are paying for a fast os and a high quality camera that is not just increased mega pixel numbers. (see lumia 830 front camera samples or lumia 730 pictures with a camera below 8mp)
This phone is don double priced. It is almost similar to 550. And they are asking double of that. Microsoft fans please i need clarification on this one. And i welcome those who say wp OS can run on sd200 series.. Performance is same as 550 sometime 550 faster than 650 both on same windows version..
