Microsoft's Lumia 650 has good looks at a low price
Microsoft's Lumia 650 is a strange beast.
The budget priced phone that actually looks much nicer than it's flagship stable mate.
It's only 6.9 milimeters thick Has a clean, matte design.
And the anodized aluminium frame adds class that the 950 can't match.
The five inch OLED display is bright and clear and it's easy to forget that the resolution is only 720p.
It's quite a good Windows experience, with a few caveats.
While the styling is strong, the build quality feels a little weak.
Not helped by the fact It's super light.
Just 122 grams.
Peeling off the back to access the 2,000 milliamp alloy battery and sim card slot adds to the slightly flimsy feel, while it under performed in our batter test.
In real world use, it's actually pretty resilient.
Plus you never die with moderate phone use.
You are missing features like Windows Hello's facial recognition and the Windows continuing PC like experience.
Then again you're only paying $199 US or $299 Australian and they're features you might not miss.
For a low cost Windows phone experience, the Lumia 650 ticks the right boxes.
