The mobile (Lumia 650) is superb and master stroke from Microsoft to provide Windows 10 mobile at this much less price (Microsoft has its own standards)
-Very light weight phone (handy and touchable, 122gms with battery, only 6.9mm thick)
-10/10 for incorporation of metal frame which makes Lumia 650 superb cool and classy (Perfect business touch to a Lumia device till today, 10 points on design)
-1GB RAM with 1.3 gHZ quad core is more than enough for all your multi tasking in Windows 10 mobile (No heat or hang in mobile during multi applications, phone stays bool enough is one plays some low graphics games like candy crush etc.)
- 16 GB storage is some what less but it can be raised by using the micro sd card.
-OLED screen is bedizen and sharp enough
- New outlook mail is smart and simple (linked inbox feature allow your account the way you want to use)
- Windows 10 mobile it self is super fast and responsive (Mobile OS game is ON...Android and iOS be ready)
- Office 365 satisfies the all business needs of office docs.
- Edge is the new member of internet surfing and is far more better than any browser on the planet now. (10 points to EDGE)
- Cortana has its own improvements and more voice responsive (supports all type of ascents)
- Universal Apps are coming greatly to Windows store (Windows store has all the apps to satisfy one's all day needs, So no time wasting in time pass apps, which consumes most of the time in Android and iOS)
- 8MP on back and 5MP (f/2.2) front are more than enough for selfies and clear snaps
- Lumia 650 also supports 4G, NFC and Bluetooth 4.1
-Corning Gorilla glass 3 is perfect for rough use on screens
- Killing feature in Lumia 650 is automatic brightness control of the screen... (Awesome for the usage in low light and sunny hours)
-In conclusion Lumia 650 (with Windows 10 Mobile) is the master piece that you need to taste the flavors offered by Microsoft in terms of hardware and software. The snapdragon 212 with 1 GB RAM is best optimized with 2000 MAH battery.
Why can't Lumia 650 record 1080p video even though Snapdragon 212 is clearly capable of encoding and decoding 1080p media?
Correct me if I'm wrong isn't this same processor used in Jolla C smartphone too?
As far as I know Jolla C is able to record 1080p clips without any issues, why can't Lumia 650 do the same?
I purchased MSlumia 650 launched in India in March2016. Today I repent my decision. Its Facebook crashes and the resumes of its own. Almost all reviews contain this complaint. In messages keyboard changed automatically to Hindi from English and my efforts to reverse it back to English have failed. It would show notifications on whatsapp these have stopped suddenly. Will Microsoft please attend to these problems and suggest solutions.
it is an v good phone but whatsapp video calling and messenger video calling its not plzz update the features in up coming updates
big-G, 11 Jul 2016Microsoft Lumia 650 gets another price drop in the UK, now costs £99.99Last lumias on sale.....
Because after announcing 2 phones they knew that it is not working. Recently they sell their phone hardware unit and closed Nokia Finland unit. You can think why. Surface phones?? Yes. But surface phones will run on diff os. They will focus on that rather than 0.7% share. This is the end of Lumia.
now look, microsoft closed their finland phone unit. now what would say?? this is the end of lumia. 😭😭

Windows 10 must needs high end spec. and at least 2 gb of ram 1 gb not enough for smooth performance of Lumia devices.Lumia always comes with the dated and lower end cheapest.Now it going to pay for all that in terms of slow performance which was never ever expected from the Lumia devices.

But don't know why microsoft made windows10m with such low specs. I think they had already plans to shut hardware smartphone market. After one year they will also stop developing os and go behind surface phone which are only for enterprise use. After that no phones for consumer market at all.

Microsoft is making it for aliens.ðÂŸÂ˜Â… There are two things. 1) if Microsoft don't know how to make smartphones 2) They are making phones ahead of this time. If we look back, ms was continually making low specs phones. If there win10 really need high spec then they should go for more.

I think lumia 650 has a poor SoC and it cannot be smooth and lagness specially with windows 10. Anyway if it's possible for you take a video and compare 950 with 650 in terms of speed and software.
with latest updates the phone is amazing. actually i have 950 and 640XL but there is no bug anymore. the os is the same on all phones and it's bugless now. i have 10586.420 build and I'm really really satisfied with it. most of the apps are rebuilt and working great with amazing quality.apps like instagram, facebook, messenger, whatsapp, mytube(youtube), specter(snapchat), Spotify, tune in radio, twitter, 9gag mobile,line, viber, audio cloud(sound cloud), shazam, vlc and many others are now rebuilt and full of other oses features. every month new update comes to these phones and they are getting even better.
