People seem to be confusing the Snapdragon 410 with the Snapdragon 400. The Snapdragon 212 and the Snapdragon 400 (and all the variations in the 400) do appear to be very similar, both are ARMv7 and 32-bit only. The Snapdragon 410 however is NOT the same, it is ARMv8. If you run a 64-bit OS ARMv8 is supposedly considerably faster. As pointed out by someone else, this is telling (check the performance tab):
On top of that the graphics is actually lower than the 640 and even 630. Considering the 630 is a couple of years old, it really borders on pathetic. Microsoft really lost an opportunity here, they could have made all new phones (at least the 650 and above) be ARMv8 and therefore run Windows 10 Mobile 64-bit, and have legacy and low end devices run Windows 10 Mobile 32-bit. They could have been on a real winner if they matched it with a sensible processor, in this case at least the Snapdragon 412. The Snapdragon 415 would coupled with a batter battery they would have been on a real winner. This is even if it costed $10 more. Considering the raw input cost, $10 more is actually excessive, but with those specs they would have had the ideal general purpose phone. The pricepoint is good for general purpose, but the processor is a real deterrent. No doubt they'll release a phone with a better processor and battery at some point, but charge a lot more for it. That would take it out of the general purpose 'everyday' etc category, making the price a deterrent.
If would have bought this phone if the processor/GPU was a more sensible match at that pricepoint, however I am going to pass. Since there is no sensible Microsoft Phone at a sensible price (the 950 is the next phone up currently and costs way too much) I will probably buy an Android next time. If it had a decent processor, battery, similar price, and especially if running 64-bit Windows 10 Mobile, I wouldn't hesitate to buy one as an upgrade.
yousha, 16 Feb 2016will ms relese 650 xl i hope it will have snap 617 or 650suure, not doubt about it...
Daniel, 15 Feb 2016Wow, so many ignorant people. LOOK AT THE SPECS CLOSER.
Snapdragon 212 = Snapdragon 410. Wa... morewhat's this?
Check the "Performance" tab.
just think that this specs will be put on android devices then make a review for us to see the difference and some people know they dont need high ram in windows mobile.
