Looks uninteresting to have a snapdragon 210 (when 820 is round the corner) that too on 5" display but then in recent CES alcatel announces one with 210 and 5.5" display (Fierce XL)! Well, has qualcomm made a clearance sale of 210? But 210 has reasonable other specs but for 720p limit. Alcatel phone is expected to be around $65 and is good enough at that price. If Lumia 650 is about $60 then it makes sense.
To my would be more logical that use a 1080 p resolution and the snapdragon 415 or 617
Apart from the cameras and inclusion of Gorilla Glass it isn't really a step up from the 550... In fact the 550 has a better pixel density...
I don't know whats the problem with Microsoft.. even 640 have SD-400 and its successor 650 will have SD-210..wtf..!!!
Angry bird, 10 Jan 2016Please somebody fire the device engineers, marketing so-called "experts and managers from Micr... moreAgree with you all the way.I think i would manage and produce better and innovative smartphones worth great and useful ideas and features than those that work at Microsoft. You cannot have just good resume and good degree and you are intellect as none else. There are people without these but they have ideas, imagination and will to create something different and useful. These days these technology companies just copy each other with very low differentiation in products and services. They just stopped thinking in different manner and started copying or following each other.
Please somebody fire the device engineers, marketing so-called "experts and managers from Microsoft mobile. They have ABSOLUTELY NO idea about what we want. Why pay incompetent people? You hire anybody from the market that is using WP for more than just telephony. That person could give you better/more innovative ideas that any of those that are working at MS today.
nokiaXpress, 09 Jan 2016why Snapdragon 210 SoC again ?because SD 210 is the best
we are waiting for lumia 750. Primary 8.7 Carl Zeiss optics, OIS, FFC 5, 2GB RAM, GG3, CBD technology, v3.1, type-C reversible connector. Iris scanner, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, sensor core
another snapdragon210 series...again...again..and again...
even my dog knows it means nothing but fail.
640 with snapdragon 400 is way better than this 650 sd 210 people should wake up and not a single phone should be bought out
I would buy lumia 750 with 5.2 1080p display OLED glance screen, 2GB RAM, 1.7 GHZ 8-core processor, USB type C, waterproof design, camera button, 4000mah battery and all other similar features and design to lumia 735.
lot of company releasing a lowend smartphone but the memory 2gb bate 2000 plus microst still make flagship like dis they will never make lot sale promise
why microsoft are not giving it devices to 1.5 gb or 2 gb ram in 10000 rsprice tag as we seen 2 gb ram on android at 10000rs price tag so why not windows phone ya i know 1gb ram is sufficient for windows10 os .but today 2 gb needed ...so microsoft give 1.5 or 2 gb ram to ur low end devices
Another low end phone . Microsoft really needs a strong mid grade phone with 1080p 2 gigs of ram , SD card slot , windows 10.
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2016Very unpleasant. Nice specs if it is only $100 that is.Considering Lumia 550 price...not a chance
