in india it costs 15000INR.. that's around $220USD.. In that price range people expect something more. And nothing wrong with that. SD 410, 16GB ROM, 2GB RAM, 8/12MP camera, 5MP front facing camera and 2500mah battery capacity. These are minimum requirements for the price tag. Even samsung is offering much same or more features for less price. you can find Chinese OEMs offering much better specs at very less price. So Microsoft has produced a failure. I like windows phone OS. Using Lumia 730 from last one year. Bought it for less than the price of Lumia 650. I believe it has got much better specs for its price. So, Any defenders over here please tell me What features justify this price?? What is worth with this mobile?
usman khan, 07 May 2016Gives me information about the touch of lumia 650. What you want to know about touch on Lumia 650?
This phone is just a all show no go device.
Better go for 640 LTE, it may not look as good as 650 but it has better features.
Rohan, 06 May 2016Don't know about the charger which comes in packing as I'm using charger of my old phone (i.e.... moreHow it can be only 1:15h when a charger from Lumia 620 is 1.3A? With 2Ah battery that means: 2 / 1.3 = 1:30h and that is just theoretically, in practice it's always longer because of lowering current in 2nd charging phase (CV). For 1:15h charge you would need something like 2A charger.
Moreover, I'm also using the charger from Lumia 620 and in reality it's outputting only 1A and with that it takes 2:15h for full charge.
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2016bro any one tell me about charging time.. some complain about slow charging more than 3 hours.... moreDon't know about the charger which comes in packing as I'm using charger of my old phone (i.e. Lumia 620). With that charger it only takes 1 hour 15 mins to fully charge
Jins, 05 May 2016Does it supports OTG ?I have lumia 650, nothing happens when i plug otg

Tarique, 05 May 2016I am facing stereo Headphone issue as my wired headphone perform output only Mono not stereo. ... moreThere's no way that a 1.2A charger can fully charge 2Ah battery in just 1:15h. That's technically impossible. I have 1.3A charger (but it's charging only with 1A) and it takes 2:15. So either you have faulty charger or battery. That can be easily found out by using "usb doctor", just look for it on ebay - the one which can measure capacity (mAh). Something like this: http://goo.gl/Q658gt
For the headphones problem, are you sure that jack is all the way inside connector? My was a little stiff at first.

I am facing stereo Headphone issue as my wired headphone perform output only Mono not stereo. Also battery issue. currently I am using LG 1.2A charger which charges the phone of almost 1 hour and 15 minutes but battery drain very quickly.
Someone have the solution of above problems. Thanks
Pro: nice display
Con: poor battery life. It should it have a bigger battery for a few more microns of thickness.
Shakeel, 03 May 2016Is it compatible with smart bands like fit bits etc and can count steps while walking and jogg... moreI can't say for sure since I don't own any smart band, but it should support them since in MS Health app or Fitbit app, I can see steps being counted nicely, which means it does have SensorCore. Hope this helps.
Is it compatible with smart bands like fit bits etc and can count steps while walking and jogging. Please update if anyone tried it. Thanks

hassan, 29 Apr 2016thanks
a lot bro please can u share ur experience wuth 650.. i want to upgrade from 730Sorry for being late with my answer, been busy lately. I upgraded to 650 from my old 620, so for me it's been a huge upgrade. Windows 10 is very good, I think I wouldn't want to go back to 8.1. Sure, there are still some bugs here and there, but nothing major and it's perfectly usable for everyday usage, moreover new updates are released every month, so it will be only better and better.
Only cons which I see, is not a very good back panel, which is little bit loose and so it's making creaky noise, but that can be fixed by using some tape from inside. Another drawback is omission of magnetometer (compass) which I think should be standard feature in 200Â€ phone.
So in conclusion I'm very satisfied with 650, but again I upgraded from a fairly old 620. I'm not that sure if it's gonna be such an upgrade from your 730, since they have more or less same hardware.
Oh, and btw, if someone is interested, I made some own technical measurements so here they are:
Voltage output of 3,5 mm jack is 0,563 V @ 1 kHz, it's output impedance is 16 ohm, and display's WB can be set from 5700K to 8300K, a maximum brightness I measured is 334 cd/m2, but that's a bit hard to do exactly, since OLED displays change their brightness with amount of white displayed..
What Lumia 650 should have had:
4.7" OLED 720p screen, @320ppi, 70% screen-to-body ratio, GG4
Snapdragon 410 @ 1.4GHz + 2GB RAM
13MP with PDAF and 1/3" sensor + 5MP front camera combo, both at f/2.0
Stereo speakers on front
2300mAh removable battery, even if it got a milimiter thicker, with at least 72h endurance
+ Lumia 650 XL with 5.5" OLED 1080p screen, Snapdragon 615, same body ratio and 3000mAh battery wit the same endurance.
All those and this would be my next buy.
