I have big respect to mocrosoft who change the world with Window OS. but they are not able to manage Window Phone. I want to see tech Giant on the top. but they never make me feel good around my friends who carry Android and i always trying to convince them that MS Window Phone will come back soon.
I am bit upset with microsoft point of view for lumia devices, it seems that microsoft intensely want to kill lumia phone, if we see that all the phone around 100 USD have 2GB RAM and minimum quad core processor. then why microsoft does not want to release low end phone with better specs.
if only they could have a bit more generous in incorporating at least 1.5RAM I think that will change the game, honestly Microsoft Lumia design is fantastic to look in its no fancy conservative designs it shows the rigidity of the handset-simple
Bad specs for the price , Nothing New
The lumia 640 much better deal i dont understand wat Microsoft here want to do.
But the update to windows 10 phone takes to long!
Nice phone but Very poor batrry nd very costly bt microsoft is microsoft,
How about they try MediaTek or Intel for recent W10 releases with Continuum support? Maybe that could bring the price down and entice more customers. What?! Compatibility or support issues? Psh
For me, the first step microsoft should finish first is the upgrade from earlier handsets. Not delivering new handsets with low specs instead. Furthermore with such a ridiculous price.
Microsoft should change its plan.the lumia 850 is more demanding than this lumia 650.
Microsoft either needs to stop/cancel this phone right now or upgrade those specs. No way can this phone be considered even a decent low-end with those specs/price ratio.
They could not deliver half of others but their phone is so costly. Rubbish.
What an ugly black brick. Doubt this is was intended and not a leak as the commenter above suggests cause if this was intended by Microsofts´ PR, then they should be fired.
hio, 03 Feb 2016Even my very old galaxy s2 (2011) got more respected h/w power yeah I was thinking to put 2010 instead of 2012 but was afraid it would be little overboard... and S2 is beast phone compared to this joke LOL .
F***K you Microsoft, is this kind of joke? snapdragon 210 chipset for $200 phone!! are you insane??
I used to be the fan of Microsoft but seeing their price of every phone is making me to hate them.
Samsung is offering S410 chipset in affordable phones for less than $180 and you Microsoft taking $200 for S210 phone!!
That's the reason why Microsoft struggling with mobile business.
MAGIC, 03 Feb 2016Microsoft continues to produce quality phones. However, the selling price should be closer to ... moreYou do realise that they're putting an even slower processor than the one in its predecessor right? And that 199 dollar price range is filled with much more reasonably equipped android phones.
as if the images are ever really "top secret", can the editors stop this childish attempts to captivate the readers by writing the headings as if some james bond guy had to sneak into a secret lair to get the renders. its clearly a pr thing to hand out the images to measure appeal from the market on Microsofts part and yes the head of marketing handed over the images willing to build desire from potential buyers. pls stop antagonizing the poor readers with this "image leaked" headings. just for simple measure how many images were allegedly leaked this past four days huh?
