I am waiting for this phone , since last 2 month , i hope it will launch soon in india and i belive this phone is best in all lumias around it's price
definitely not the adorable specs around and it will fast eclipse by many android device in its price range and higher specs but the selling point here is the aluminum chassis, removable back cover, the office suite and cloud drive that's it while its OS win X will have a second thought, c'mon Microsoft whats keeping you, whats holding you back if can improve your app Store and Win X goodbye to android
northwood, 15 Feb 2016No its not, old sd400 has cache memory, sd2xx series cpu's dont't have it so its lower end segmentCache requirement is offset by CPU core itself. It is a minor variant Arm 7-A. Its definitely low end, no doubt but not inferior in performance to sd 400.
For ex, core, clocking, support for fast charge, open gles, LTE. Few pluses very few to differentiate. I think he said he is using for his secondary usage. So he won't use it for heavy gaming (i assume), thereby cache use for video graphics is not a problem with GPU 304.
Microsoft should make this device in Africa available soon. We love Lumias so please ship to Ghana. I will be first to order
Definitely worth to wait a month or two for a price drop. CPU is not a rocket, but at least not worse than was one on Moto G first generation (which was really good phone) and A7 core is power efficient, so battery life shouldn't be an issue. However looks like Windows Phone 10 still needs some polishing.
Ferengi80, 15 Feb 2016As the article quite clearly states, wait for a short while and the price will likely fall. Fall? Plummet...

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?
