Anonymous, 15 Feb 2016720p amoled screen is far better than any fhd lcd , pls stop humiliate ursefl with stupid commentsStill doesn't change the fact that it is not worth the $200. SD200 series is a ultra low end SoC, with the addition of software problems and app support in Windows Phone, this device is more like a punishment. If one has knowledge about mobile phones and softwares, they are most likely won't be choosing this.
A little advice for Microsoft just close your phone business because they don't know anything about phone they still living in stone age This phone is crap they are using sd 212 which is poor then sd 400 So Lumia 640 is better choice if you want windows phone 12k price is much more for this crap so choose wisely

Nice design, but with some lame specsÂ…it should goes for snapdragon 410 cpu, andÂ…maintain the 5200mAh battery from 640Â…for this such of pricing in 2016, the phone should comes with 2gb ram instead of 1gb
I have both Windows and Android...Sometimes i hate WP because it lacks some apps but for most of the task i prefer Windows. I am using Lumia 730 and Asus Zenfone Laser. Both give same performance. But i like OLED and ClearBlack Display of L730 and its Camera.
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2016say goodbye to Microsoft lumia devices in 2017 And say hi again to nokia device in 2016
Microsoft is a reputed brand...Samsung, Apple, LG, HTC, SONY...All are reputed brand...So i don't think MS is charging high for the hardware it is giving. All the reputed brand give the same hardware. Don't compare it with the High Specifications of Crappy Brand like Xiaomi, Lenovo, LeTV, Huawei, Gionee, Oppo, Coolpad.
Microsoft fanboys mentality :
snapdragon 200series is better than snapdragon 400series
512mb ram is better than 2gb (ANDROID)
8mp camera is better than 13mp
windows OS is smoother than nokia Symbian OS

And yes, this phone is aimed at businesses and people working on the go.
iOS is like using a really good home service with a SLA of 90% uptime.
Android = SLA of 75% uptime.
Also, in this price range you can't get a good business phone. Android phones are out of the question due to their countless bugs, low performance, apps crashing, lack of security and the constant need of restarts and factory resets; while Windows phones just keep working.
Guys, asking for your opinion, I am interested to getting the Lumia 650 for my backup phone, and I use to be having a Lumia 640 which unfortunately just spoiled recently. I had compare both of the processor, on surface of course Lumia 640 would be having a better processor (Snapdragon 400), while Lumia 650 are having Snapdragon 212 processor. So with all your opinion, thus would there be any big different in between both processor? I check the GPU wasn't that much different. Any advice?

Anytime somebody makes a comment like that proclaiming a wp to be more "business like" than other phones it's extremely transparent and stupid.
ifedith, 15 Feb 2016I don't know about that but what i do know in asphalt 8 and wild blood, i always change it to ... moreIt's just physically impossible to run Asphalt 8 with decent settings on 19 GFLOPS GPU. No matter of OS.
There are reviews of Lumia 550 on Youtube. Asphalt 8 lags a lot with under 15-18 fps on ultra low. It's unplayable. But any way it's a gaming GPU, nor gaming device. The problem is that Adreno 30x isn't even enough to hand 2D interface. Especially web browsing.
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2016is that a major app? lolMajor is a relative term. Android has everything imaginable. American Airlines, Chase Bank, Bank of America, NBC, Pinterest have all discontinued their Windows Phone apps in the past year...From the Verge 10/2015
ASosko, 15 Feb 2016Its business phone...read before write please....So, business phone no need more power? Business phone doesn't need more ram or better processor? Business phones work with 1 app at a time??
