Microsoft made high spec no premium look and made premium look with low spec.. ha ha ha.. sad.. waiting for premium model in and out..
Dear GSM arena, this is not a midrange phone, this is a business phone. MS said that they will release 6 phones per year: 2 low end, 2 business and 2 high end phone. This phone is meant to be for a business men who use their phone for messages, calls, emails, office, and business apps which don't need a high specs. So once more, this is not a midrange, but a business phone.
Sorry on my english
AnonD-452443, 21 Dec 2015Snapdragon 212 ? Isnt that a bit low? Lumia 640 had Snapdragon 400...Well... Technically, it still the same Cortex A7 as 400 has, although, 2xx series are clocked lower and lack of various features 4xx have (sensors, lower GPU class, etc). It will be different matter when we compare 21x to 41x though since 41x is 64 bit.
Windows Phone and Windows Mobile 10 are made to be mobile operating systems that don't require a lot of system resources like Android. Read any review and the reviewer will be quick to tell you that no matter the specs, Microsoft's mobile operating system is always smooth unlike its competitors that need ridiculous specs just to function.
Okay, if they don't upgrade my 435 to win10 I will put this brick in the trashcan and go buy an android .l.
Hopefully the spec is not final, for such a beautifully designed phone, it needs a decent hardware and people will flocks to this beautiful device!
I am more and more losing hope for microsoft lumia products. Instead improving their products they make it even less advanced.

When will Microsoft's love for 200 & 210 end and start shipping at least 410 on all devices. 650 with a 210 is a big no no.. :-(
