Microsoft Lumia 650 review: Good looks, but it's still 'buyer beware' for Windows phones

 

It's got looks to spare, but with the future of Lumia and Windows Phone up in the air, this handset comes with a caveat emptor.

The Lumia 650 has a great design and a price that can't be beat.

It's missing some key new Windows phone features, like Continuum and Windows Hello.

As budget phones go, the Lumia 650 ticks most of the right boxes, but with Microsoft's phone future looking dim, you may want to pass.

Microsoft Lumia 650 Smartphone Review

 

Mainstream Microsoft. The new Lumia 650 from Microsoft wants to convince users with competitive pricing and obviously the Windows operating system. The manufacturer from Redmond targets business customers in particular. Because of the slow hardware,...

good build quality and sturdy case ; detachable rear cover ; replaceable battery ; storage expansion via microSD ; great AMOLED screen without PWM ; decent camera ; good GPS ; Microsoft Office

mediocre battery runtimes ; slow performance ; no USB cable or headset ; no Continuum or Windows Hello ; bad speaker ; weak PSU with fixed cable

The Microsoft Lumia is a decent successor to the old Lumia 640. The mainstream smartphone now uses the design language from the bigger siblings Lumia 950/Lumia 950 XL and we get a good chassis with a great AMOLED screen. After the review, however, we...

Microsoft Lumia 650 Review

 

Last November, Microsoft launched the Lumia 950 and 950 XL to debut Windows 10 on smartphones. With muscular spec sheets, the duo took aim at the higher-end price segment, leaving Windows 10 out of reach for budget-minded buyers. Six months later,...

Solid build ; Nice display ; Camera captures delightful detail

Windows 10 feels a bit rough around the edges ; Camera has poor automatic exposure and white balance settings ; Broken video recording

The Microsoft Lumia 650 provides a mostly adequate experience, making it a solid choice for an entry-level Windows 10 handset. It's nicely put together and handles well. The screen and speaker are of good quality and make for enjoyable multimedia.

Hands-on: Cricket Microsoft Lumia 650 is a compelling choice at only $130

 

Cricket is a prepaid service provider operating on the AT&T network and for $130 it's tough not to consider the functional Microsoft Lumia 650.

Review: Microsoft Lumia 650 for Cricket Wireless

 

Microsoft's mid-range Lumia 650 is a more attractive option than Microsoft's other handsets and is quite affordable. This Windows 10 Mobile smartphone should appeal to budget-minded shoppers who prefer prepaid services and are already invested in the...

Cricket Wireless is selling the Lumia 650 for $120. That's a fair price for this handset. The phone is a step up from the Lumia 550 in terms of design and specs, and it delivers a bit more oomph. Even so, the 650 looks better than it feels and is far...

Microsoft Lumia 650 review: a budget device that punches well above its weight [Update]

 

The Microsoft Lumia 650 is a budget Lumia that punches well above its weight. Here's our review of Microsoft's latest iteration in the Lumia 6xx series, where we intend to prove just that.

Specs. I am so sick of that word. Since picking up the Lumia 650, I've published an unboxing and first impressions , second impressions , and three comparisons. When looking at the comments, it was as if no one had even read the words I had written....

Microsoft Lumia 650 review

 

The Microsoft Lumia 650 is an entry-level smartphone with a premium, ultraslim and lightweight design. It brings a lot to the table, including a superb OLED screen, a generous 16GB of memory (plus a microSD memory card slot), and the powerful built-in...

The Lumia 650 seems to mark a new direction for Microsoft - towards premium design, even at the budget end of the market. We very much welcome that move, and look forward to more of the same in the future.

Microsoft Lumia 650

 

2015 was the year of the affordable smartphone. During that time, we saw the release of some of the best value-for-money handsets ever made. Highlights included the Moto G, OnePlus X and Vodafone Smart Ultra 6.

Microsoft Lumia 650 review

 

A budget Windows phone that looks anything but cheap

Fancy metal rims ; Super-high contrast OLED screen ; Clever camera processing ; Decent selfies

Slow camera processing ; Feels slow in use ; Not great general-use stamina

Ultra-poppy screen and fancy build bits make a good first impression, but it doesn’t feel fast enough.
