This is a really poor performing phone and Apps crash on a regular basis due to the low RAM and substandard processor. Windows 10 is also a defective op system and has plenty of bugs. In less than a year even the phone loudspeaker is not working due to some loose connection. I had the NOKIA 730 dual sim before this and that was far better. Microsoft is a failure where making phones are concerned. Will be switching to NOKIA or iphone soon.
This phone could have been hit if M$ put more powerfull SoC inside or set lower price.
Also W10 was disaster in early days.
This phone is perfect, it's not a beast like 950, but it's liteweight and it's enough for everyday use.... I have white version, working good...

Also I like Alcatel as a brand, and the Idol 4 for Windows is a very good product for what you pay for it. Sadly it's still not available in my country and I don't think it will be since it's out already for a long time. The choice here if you want Windows 10 mobile is only a Lumia. But eBay can help me out perhaps. Though I'm still using my 930 since 3 years.
Had it since launch works a dream, never had a problem with it and its restarted itself once since I got it when released, i am not a heavy app user as I know the apps are limited on Windows but this suits me mostly, I cannot fault the handset at all.

It's freezing so often I have to turn it of at least 10 times a day. If it does not freeze then it won't open WhatsApp to share a web site link from Edge. It deletes all tabs on random occassions, and today it deleted all web site links lined to start!! Plus it messed up my start screen. When I went checking I now saw that another update took place without my agreeing to it just month after creator update messed my phn up. As sw designer and tested myself if this phn did not have call recording service enabled Id threw it in the bin!! But Cs it has I catch lying bastards w poor and fish memory so am keeping it for just that!! Not worth buying or if you do buy, never allow first or any other update to get to it. It's not worth the agro!!

Aadrian, 03 May 2017This is not the best Windows 10 mobile phone, but it certainly is a great deal for the money.Not in Japan I say. Here you can buy Lenovo 503 LV which also runs on Windows 10 Mobile at a lower price than Lumia 650.
It has better hardware, Snapdragon 617, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage and Continuum. This phone is overpriced.
Don't understand how anyone can use windows phone. Got it for work, played a lil and put it in a draw using my old android as its just too outdated to me all os and rest. Just not user friendly at all. Would never buy windows phone for myself.
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.
