I bought the Lumia 650, and it is an amazing device.
I am hoping they will release the 850 with identical everything except the following:
* CPU SD650
* RAM 2GB
If possible, a slightly higher-res camera would be cool.
The AMOLED screen on the Lumia 650 is amazing despite being 720p HD. I won't mind keeping it for the 850 (please.... no LCD). And the overall design and materials are superb.
I spent $200 on the Lumia 650, and I would gladly spend $350 on such a Lumia 850.
I don't understand why my only available step up now is an $800 Lumia 950.

AnonD-87921, 05 Feb 2016The 640xl is better also with the OS 8.1. Windows 10 is a hot mess on mobiles, a total joke!Take a look on the last version. It's better, only the microsoft edge is on the slower side. Microsoft is on the good way. This is my opinion. Ps. After the update you have to restore the phone to the factory settings.
This is a joke. I compared it with lumia 830 and the specs are same!!! Y would ms launch the same phone in different design. In fact 830 has better LTE bands support than this 850.

Again the same thing as for the 650. Gorgeous design, but mediocre specs for a midrange phone. This sould have had a 617 chip with 2GBs of ram and 1080p display. The 650 should have had a 410 cpu with 1GB ram. But as I've said before, MS doesn't know a damn thing about mobile phones and marketing. They either have good specs but are ugly and have cheap materials, or they have premium materials and design but mediocre specs.
they should change the RAM to atleast 2GB
and the camera to atelast 12mp

You guys after aquiring nokia thought you would bring grace to lumia..you know what...still you are unable to catch the pulse of lumia fans...what a worst specs you design for new model
Its not GSMarena. Its Anti-windows arena. It pisses me off when i see most of the people here bitching about almost all windows phones. Windows phone's 2MP camera is as same as any of the android's 5MP. Android is boring and common. Windows is classy and different. U nvr gets bored from a windows device. Android uses much more RAM than Windows to run any app. M a windows fan coz i've many reasons to be one.
