MS is going out of the Smartphone industry soon. Nadella said the market share is not key a key factor but services are. I guess its a msg to focus on ms services regardless of the platform. Still they are not consumer oriented and they missed the chance since acquiring Nokia where they did not have the vision and strategy on how to leverage on Nokia's brand equity and consumers' love and loyalty to the brand. No one will buy a windows phone (very few people ofcourse), but still not the required volume to build a sustainable business.
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2016Can it run high end apps/games like iPhone... noIt can but on lower settings, even my Lumia 435 which has a measly dual-core SD200 can do that :P
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2016Can it run high end apps/games like iPhone... noAt cost of iPhone, you can buy 5 or 6 Lumia 650.
I use lumia 520 till today and upgraded with lastest firmware and yes it is lag, mostly i used it as a gps. Whatever u said it is lag, open the here drive app and pls try it your self to type it is lag and sometimes the app we opened close by it self and restart.
Complex operating system and apps require power to compute you cant deny this fact, underpower soc and mini ram capacity doesnt help microsoft bussiness, they should charge less for their OS and give developer more incentives, microsoft has lose in mobile war, they simply doesnt know what strategy and what the customer want
sr777, 08 Jan 2016There is a phone with better specs called lumia 950xl :pNo shit !!!! :o
I agree, haters must never of used WP.They don't need superfast chipsets, just look at spec sheet for iPhone yet they are very fast.Also the screens on WP are much better and less boring than static icons.Would love to see a smaller version maybe 4.5-4.7 inch screen.
@run, 08 Jan 2016Please make 2 gb ram, 32gb internal memory and 3000 mah battery with 5+" phoneThere is a phone with better specs called lumia 950xl
AnonD-331993, 08 Jan 2016you have no taste in phone my friend. maybe you just use it for calls and sms. no social no ap... moreYou can always go for the high end option with Lumia 950 or 950xl and mid range with 640xl.
We are simple people with simple needs. We will go for the low specs if the price is right.
I don`t know why you hatin before the price.I have a 640....it is perfect for what i do.
it doesn`t get errors like android
is not slow
I am a light user:here maps,surfing on internet,weather,facebook,mail,youtube, and they simply work.
the 720p screen is ok for 5 inch device.
batter usualy 3-4 days and I got two sims in it.1 for me and 1 from my work.like I sayd I am not a heavy user.
and i got it for 130 EURO.I saw it at 110 on black friday.
I had android and I guess now you can get lenovo k3 note with that kind of money.and you get alot more on the hardware departament.
but for me the 640 seams more reailable over time then the lenove.maybe i`m wrong...but I`m no fanboy at my age:)
Would have loved to see a little better spec than that of Lumia 640, this sounds kind of wierd!
Michael, 07 Jan 2016So many people crazy about numbers, about specs. Crazy world.you have no taste in phone my friend. maybe you just use it for calls and sms. no social no apps. just plain phone. i hope youre happy
Lol 210sd ......😨😨😨😨ms do not know any thing about mobile industry.. low hardware limited users.... atleast use midrange hardware sd410 615sd...
I have been an ardent fan of Nokia but MS should take learn from the past history of N and also see the future. They are too naïve on the current trends and not living up to the trends. Hope Nokia C1 will bring that phenomenal change what I am waiting for keenly. It should be wholesome package with a WOW EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!
