Charles (lap), 21 Feb 2016It's a good configuration... 1 GB of RAM is more enough for Windows OS.. Lumia 650 price should be set reasonable, around $100. so that people will buy and experience Wd platform.
This would have been the perfect phone for me if MS just went for a little higher SoC, which has at least 2GB of RAM (and a more powerful GPU) and a little more juice on the Battery.
YES, I know people would say "1GB of RAM is enough for Windows Phone". I get that, it's true. 1GB of RAM is enough for the OS alone, but some APPS are demanding on RAM. There are GAMES which are power hungry (RAM + GPU + Battery), so expect a noticeable lag on those with the current specs.
Besides, MS said Lumia 650 is "made for Business", so the specs would fit into that idea.
But, I still wish they release an identical phone except with a higher SoC so they could cater the mid-range consumers. Lumia 655/660 "Made for You" (maybe??).
Going to buy this for sure. A very happy Lumia User from 3 years. No Lags, No Hangs, No Virus, No software issue and those who always compare with android and complaint about lack of Apps let me tell you that Windows have all the necessary apps that are required in a Smart Phone. Atleast we are faar away from those Creepy, Cheap and Buggy apps that completely kills the phones performance even it is 3 GB RAM or 4 GB RAM... Love windows without any doubt.
Charles (lap), 21 Feb 2016It's a good configuration... 1 GB of RAM is more enough for Windows OS.. yes for the OS itself, it's enough.. but for the APPS on top of the OS, it's not.
There would be noticeable lag when you run some APPS, especially on demanding games (like Asphalt 8).
Is it oled screen or AMOLED screen in Microsoft site mention as oled but I have seen couple of videos in youtube they described as AMOLED please somone replay my question planning to buy 650
lopa, 21 Feb 2016Phone Looking Is Good But RAM and Batter Capacity Is Very Low Win 10 + Amoled screen on 2000mAh is like 2500mAh battery on Lumia 640, so same power consumption :-)
lopa, 21 Feb 2016Phone Looking Is Good But RAM and Batter Capacity Is Very Low Buddy please check iphone 5s specks and then say it is low

Windows 10 phones are working good. 1GB ram and 16GB storage good to see. For a phone 4.7" or 5" screen size is perfect. Most people specially in India want affordable phones. Lumia 550 or Lumia 650, I have to choose between them.
For the cost of $200+ smartphone, at least 2GB RAM, 5.5" Screen with higher pixels resolution, 20MP camera, 3500mAh to 4000mAh power backup.
Apps department still needed 99% improvement to created a good Wd OS mobile ecosystem.
