Will Microsoft Lumia 650 Be Good For Business and Regular Use?

Microsoft confirmed the release of Lumia 650 which may be expected to be in stores by February 18. This new Lumia 650 is being marketed as business class Windows phone, as well as first Windows 10 phone. But, looking at the specs, no one is going to accept Lumia 650 for business use. Maybe I am wrong. Please consider the below details and decide yourself. First we look into the design and then specs as marketed.

Design of Lumia 650:

  • a bright and hard 5-inch OLED display, which is most beautiful at this price. (Price: $199, before local tax and subsidies)
  • 720 pixels resolution with Gorilla Glass protection.
  • An Aluminum frame covered which is highly polished, anodized and has cut like a diamond.
  • Has a thickness of 6.9mm and weighing 122 grams.
  • On the front, there is a camera with 5MP lens and on the rear, there is a camera with 8MP lens.
  • It is confirmed that the battery is removable. So, we assume the back panel could be removable.

Specifications of Lumia 650:

  • Snapdragon 212 processor, a quad-core Cortex A7 CPU clocked up to 1.3GHz.
  • Running Windows 10 OS, but it cannot support Continuum portable desktop feature.
  • Only one GB of RAM.
  • 16GB Internal memory which can be expandable via microSD card.
  • powered by a 2000mAh battery.
  • support for 4G available.
  • features NFC, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1.

Lumia 650 for business use?

After looking into the design with pics and specs sheet, there I no doubt it has a good, neat and decent business class layout. But, look at the specs. It looks like a very low-end Android phone’s specs.

How can a one GB RAM phone go running open documents in Office 365, a browser with 5 or more tabs open and email app in multi-tasking? I think this above scenario is a basic one for any business man. Running apps count may go more than this scenario. So, how one GB RAM going to manage all apps at once?

If they meant a business class as a person keep the phone most of the time in the pocket or in working table as a paperweight, then this is a business class phone. Otherwise, I may be wrong.

Lumia 950XL, 950, 640 and 550 are still available in the market. We suggest them against this new Lumia 650. Check these Lumia series phones specs and prizes in Amazon USA or Amazon India.
