I think Microsoft want to sell this phone on good looks, good camera and easy to use windows 10 but then again price is so high because in $110 many decent phones are available.
Cortex A7 in 2016? Outdated phone to say the least. Atleast Snapdragon 410 should have been used.
I think Microsoft made a mistake. SD 410 should have been a much better option. It is cheaper now as well.
I can't believe they didn't use it for the 650.
Amoled screen and 1080p hevc are good additions. But 2GB ram would have made it alot more future proof.
I kind of feel Microsoft has forgotten that there 600 series is a midrange offering ,not entry level.
This phone has to fight against more capable Androids such as Samsung A/J series, Sony m4, moto G series and so on.
All these devices have better specs than the lumia 650.
So people who are intelligent would not buy the lumia 650.
Reading the wine about SD400 or SD212. Whats the difference ? It's not like wp10 have games or aps that need that power and why do everyone expect on that price range anything at all ? I actually hope that this big screen boom goes over soon. I want 4 inch screen phone that have 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM with 720p screen camera with flash and cost less then $200
Looks like, Microsoft is moving with reverse gear.
Lumia 640 - Snapdragon 400 Series, Lumia 650 - Snapdragon 200 Series
chancooluk, 15 Feb 2016It's a slight upgrade. The SD400 and SD212 are both based on the Cortex-A7 architecture, but t... moreYeah SD212 has same architecture like SD400 but by what means it is an upgrade?
My Moto G 2014 Running SD400 @1.4Ghz and Adreno 305
This SD212 running @1.3Ghz I don't know which GPU it sports but I am quite sure that it is not gonna be better than Adreno 305
Don't really think that a 212 is faster than 400. Same architecture and faster clock do not mean faster performance.
Why Microsoft keep releasing 650 in this price range is infuriating me. At $200, there are a lot of solid Android phones that will bash this phone.
doom for microsoft
with other phones going at sd 800s and 600s
you are coming with sd 200s
not all people understand the difference accurately
i think it like betting on a slug to win a race with horses and cheetahs
ya all know what will happen

qwerty, 15 Feb 2016dead on arrivalLie started by a 10 core processor and daily cache cleaning phone user to claim lag has always been a lie in android.
Windows phone is getting so much stronger now.
Android fans can keep hiding the lag behind 10 core processors and dialy cache cleans.
Abhishek0708, 15 Feb 2016The only thing i am thinking is why microsoft ruining its phone market(it already has a minute... moreThe SD212 might be lesser in number, but it's based on the same architecture as the SD400, and clocked at a faster rate too. So it's actually a slight upgrade, despite the model number.
Arif238, 15 Feb 2016640 has SD 400 and 650 have SD212, I am wondering it is upgrade or downgrade?It's a slight upgrade. The SD400 and SD212 are both based on the Cortex-A7 architecture, but the SD212 is clocked at a higher speed, so it should be slightly better than the SD400.
