I saw the specification of 650 and 640xl lte.. I believe 640xl lte is much better from the 650 in many parts of the mobile.
Daniel, 15 Feb 2016Wow, so many ignorant people. LOOK AT THE SPECS CLOSER.
Snapdragon 212 = Snapdragon 410. Wa... moreThe Snapdragon 212 is NOT equal to the 410. There are two big differences, the first being that the 212 is only ARMv7 (32-bit only),and the 410 is ARMv8 (64-bit capable). The second is that the 212 is coupled with Adreno 304 GPU, the 410 is coupled with Adreno 306. The 212 actually has a less capable GPU than even the Lumia 630! The smart processor to use would have been the Snapdragon 412. The Snapdragon 415 would have made it a real winner IMO.
Another consideration, although not sure what it means on this architecture since it's difference, is that anything lower than the Snapdragon 415 isn't DirectX 12 capable. Considering it is a Microsoft OS you would think maybe DirectX 12 could be advantageous.
My lumia 730 1GB RAM have several issues playing (HD)strategy/Combat games. 5" Lumia 650 should have come with 2GB RAM and minimum 3000mAh power backup.
720p@30fps? ah get it.. this phone made for business.
BUT 1080p IS MANDATORY FOR THIS PRICE RANGE!
Microsoft need to grow up, price of this phone is very high. This should be a $100 phone
Good looking phone, bit disappointed with the battery but considering I'm looking at switching from an iPhone 5S it should be a improvement... Hopefully a dual sim version shows it face on the market in the UK though...
Daniel, 15 Feb 2016Wow, so many ignorant people. LOOK AT THE SPECS CLOSER. Snapdragon 212 = Snapdragon 410. Wa... moreYou do not get decide what can or cannot be criticized. Your arrogance is astounding.
This SoC uses Cortex-A7 cores. The SD410 uses Cortex-A53 cores. The A53 core is more power efficient than the A7 core. The Adreno 304 in the SD212 is a bit slower than the Adreno 306 in the SD410, so they're not the same.
Wow, so many ignorant people. LOOK AT THE SPECS CLOSER.
Snapdragon 212 = Snapdragon 410. Wanna know why?
They have the same clock speed. About cores, I dont know, but its the same speed.
And also consumes less battery. Well, the 2000 mAh is reasonable for the efficient processor.
Also who said this has a 5mp camera? Its 8MP with FullHD recording. The AMOLED screen is a nice upgrade, looks like Microsoft is reverting to these.
Also, for smooth W10 experience, 1GB of RAM is pretty much enough. Well see how the final version of W10 will be. Probably even more optimized than 8.1... Possible.
The only thing that is ALLOWED to be criticized about the phone is the price tag... Too high, Im not sure who will buy this at first sight...
Still, a great phone, only if it wouldnt be overpriced.
I get that that's a business phone, aimed at offices and stuff, but, for 200Â€, the specs are very bad. Im going to stick to my beloved Lumia 640 for now.
tani, 15 Feb 2016If it has at least a 400 chip set...it would be fine!!!Some say that a snapdragon 212 is the same as a snapdragon 400. Just a higher clockspeed
Here in Romania Microsoft Lumia is very popular. This phone it will be selling well here. In Romania has: 40% android, 40% windows, 20% Ios (due to high cost of gadgets sell by Apple).
