Anonymous, 09 May 2017Does anyone have their Lumia 650 keeps restarting after the creator update?I had memory full up hence the latest update was possible only yesterday. And I seriously regret going for it. Speed of Edge appeared improved for full 1hr, and after it I have to constantly turn phn off as it freezes frequently what I did not experience before this bloody update. Also it refuses to kill a tab from tab list no matter how many times I press x in the corner of it. I use to work for Ericsson as tester, no sw update cld go out with this kind of stupid faults like Microsoft updates show to induce. Disgrace.

sandy, 06 Mar 2017Using Lumia 650 DS in India since Nov 2016. If I lay the device flat on the table, the touchsc... moreI got nearly a year with my lumia 650,i use as back up phone, more for downloading music,Windows phones for music unbeatable. Since i bought the phone, i recognise when i was putting down on the table, or any flat place, the touch screen wasn't responding. I heard same problem from my friends. Is nothing wrong with phone, this is how windows engineers made the phone.I can say the phone is slow, sometimes the Facebook book doesn't open. Lumia 730,735,640 are a bit smoother than 650, still on slow side, but the apps open a bit faster then 650.650 battery is bad. Nice desig, is ok for back up phone, more is for older people, is cheep phone.
1gb ram isn't enough anymore. Facebook and messenger recommends 2gb. It runs slow on 1gb
This is not the best Windows 10 mobile phone, but it certainly is a great deal for the money.
jheddy 2, 01 May 2017Lumia 950 , despite all of the hateIf you want the best Lumia, the 950 series is a no-brainer.
I might also recommend the Acer Liquid Jade Primo - they can be had for pretty cheap right now.
juddom, 27 Apr 2017good encouragement ill go for it i like light weight phonesIt's definitely extremely light. If recommend the black one though, my white one collected stains pretty fast.

Its actually because of Microsoft Silverlight. Eventually you cannot solve the problem by soft or hard reset. What I can suggest you and I manage to resolve this issue by flashing the device. Follow the steps:
1) Remove your back cover and check for your phone model. Etc RM1154
2) Download your phone software firmware. Just google "lumia firmware".
3) Download the exact firmware which costs you about 1.9GB.
4) Download Microsoft Device Recovery tool.
5) Please google "how to flash my lumia 650"
Only that way you phone will work.
Aadrian, 22 Jan 2017Mine is working fine. I haven't found any cons, except maybe for the weight, it feels too light.good encouragement ill go for it i like light weight phones

This phone is just terrible. Less than a year with it, the w10 is buggy and crashing. Whatsapp hogs the battery like there is no tomorrow. The 1GB RAM is incredibly sluggish. There are numerous other better phones in this price range. Even if you are a windows phone fan, don't bother. It is not worth the frustration.

Nok nok, 21 Apr 2017I have a 635 for the past 2 years, its been ok ish. Now needs updating, really getting slow. ... more650 is a later model, but the 640 wins hands down in endurance rating, and supports windows 10. 650 has got a nice amoled, but like the 1520 the LCD screen is MUCH more energy efficient.
Had this phone for a week, but I ended up returning it.
1. Great OLED screen, great colours which fit the Windows OS perfectly.
2. Snapdragon 212 with 1GB RAM is pretty trash. Windows runs alright on this phone though, but yeah even opening 5 tabs on the Edge browser causes it to crash. And there are noticeable frame drops when scrolling through menus etc. If you exit any app and don't close it expect it to completely reload the next time you go to it.
3. Camera took alright-ish photos, but was slow. HDR mode was even slower. Video is only up to 720p and is very shaky. Front camera was pretty good though.
4. Windows is a good OS, and runs well on this phone if you only use it to do basic tasks. Even when using the maps app it takes forever to load. BUT light gaming is actually fine (Temple Run, Score World Goals). App store is decently stocked and the Office Apps are a great addition. Typing on the stock keyboard is also good.
5. Battery life was also pretty bad. Glance screen drained the battery a lot even though the phone uses an OLED screen. Basic tasks also drain it rather quickly.
All in all, a good phone as a backup or as an 'expendable' phone, like one of the other people said ;) but yea the SoC and 1GB of RAM just couldn't do it for me. Gorgeous screen, though. I had a Lumia 640XL before I switched from this phone and now I'm using the XL again. It's cheaper, has a much larger screen for viewing content and has phenomenal battery life. I find the performance to be better as well. Not to mention the ZEISS camera :D hope this helped!
