    Buy the 4G version of 640Xl if you are going to buy anyway.

    ...650 is not a huge upgrade to spend more $50.
    This!

    I moved from a 720 to a 650. I too considered the 640XL but the size was an issue for my hands. Plus the 640xl has a lil cheap build quality than the 650. One of my friend has the XL and even with the memory card she is struggling with the built in 8GB storage as FB, Messenger and all have huge sizes with every update. And for every update that MS pushes, she has to remove apps from her phone to free up memory so that the update can be installed. (Not all apps support use from mem card). Camera wise, both take fantastic pictures. I found both equally good in that dept. Sadly, the 650 has a limit of recording videos at just HD. So in all, the 650 is a built for Windows 10 device with its own pros and cons. Its all about your preference and choice. If buying a 640xl, make sure you buy the 4G version.

    So i am from India using the legendary L720 on Insider build .494.
    I loved that my phone lasted for like 3.5 years but I feel that from last few builds i was compromising my needs for the performance.
    Now that my phone is outdated and anniversary update is scheduled next week, i am willing to switch to a new windows phone and I have short listed my choices to Lumia 650 (which i can get around $206.5 in my area on Amazon.)
    and L640XL (current price at $152.5 at amazon. Positive point).
    And i'm seeking suggestions for choosing between L650 vs L640XL

    My daily use goes like
    1. I use Adidas miCoach for running for 1 hour every morning.
    2. I google a lot. I mean a Lot.
    3. I have 25Gigs of music in my SD card and love to listen music for 2 hours everyday.
    4. I watch videos on youtube for 30 mins.
    5. I often use Navigation during my travel or local commute.
    6. OneNote for 30 mins.
    7. Would like to do good photography and videography. (13MP vs 8MP)
    8. Little or No game. (Compromising till today as L720 has 512MB ram?

    My critical concerns for choosing the phone would be:
    1. Battery life.
    I wish i would never run out of the juice doing all above everyday like a superhero as 640XL has whooping 3000mAh vs 650's 2000.

    2.Future update compatibility.
    640XL has newer chip compared to 650's SD212.

    3. 650 lacks compass.
    will it affect my Adidas miCoach runs and everyday Navigation.?

    Size is not an issue. But would consider 650 over 640XL if it has no issues mentioned above. I am looking for pure performance.
    Please help.
    Also, Users of L650 please share your view on above from your experience.
