    If they do it anything like how the 550 was, we will find out in a month.

    Edit: So I looked on the Microsoft US site, and it says that it is coming soon. https://forums.windowscentral.com/e?...token=ohcgb-2O

    Also on the main mobile page, it is advertised too, so there's hope. It's just a matter of when, which could be in a month's time.

    I probably will pick one up when it gets here. I know it isn't really a step up from the 640, but I like it, and I have a phone addiction.

    As much as I have been waiting for this device, I'll pass. It sounds great, but I can't with AMOLED. Not a fan, since I prefer IPS. I tried it out on a 735 so I'm not being a naysayer just because. The blacks were pretty but I'm more of a light theme person, also not a fan of burn-in happening.

    I bought a 950, but will still probably get a 650 just because once they are available from Cricket or AT&T.

    I was at the Cricket kiosk in the local Mall yesterday.

    Me: Do you know when you will be getting the Lumia 650 and what the price will be?

    Rep: I don't know if we are getting that phone.

    Meanwhile they have the Lumia 640 for $70 dollars with new activation, $90 without. LOL

    Well in a moment of stupidity, I lost my HTC 8X on Saturday, so I've ordered a 650 as a replacement. I know I'm going to miss the dedicated camera button and I'm a bit concerned about the performance (although it should at least match the 8X which after a few OS updates wasn't exactly quick 'Resuming...'TM).

    Sad thing is that it will be slower than by fathers 50 BLU Win HD LTE (although you can't compare prices for new kit with special offer prices for old kit).

    But I think for 155 it will be a good piece of kit.

    I just can't bring myself to pay 400 for a phone (a 950), especially when it just looks like a big 550 (a friend of mine just spent 735 on an iPhart, totally insane!).

    Better luck this time with a new rep. He actually looked up their bulletins online.

    Lumia 650 dropping at Cricket in April. No specifics like "week 2" or anything. Just April. No price yet.

    Its looks great, recently MS launched Lumia 550 in india @ INR 9399 ($140), I would go for Lumia 650 if they launch it around INR 10500/- ($160)
    They have announced the price in Bangladesh and it is $248. Now my dream of buying 650 is gone.

    I just received the L650 - upgrading from my AT&T-branded L950. Hoping there won't be any more odd issues of missing alarms, missing photos, SD card errors, reboots and assorted crashes.

    I own Lumia 950 and my dad asked me which phone to buy next because of his old huawei android phone. He is pretty old school user at smartphones so i suggested him to buy L650 because the icons (tiles) is enough big to easily navigate through apps, compared to android little icons. I showed him what is OLED or AMOLED display and glance screen and yes, he loved it. So hopefully he order the phone and hope that L650 don't disappoint him.

    Sorry my English :)

    Ordered a 650 yesterday off amazon.in for just under INR 14k (launch price was 16.5k in April) so should get it by tomorrow! Already got a 550 a few months ago which my mom uses and it works pretty well for a low end phone.

    I already use an iPhone 6 as my primary phone mainly because I had no choice for my work phone and while it's pretty good, not really liking it too much.

    Main reason for getting the 650 is now that W10M version 1607 build 14393 (anniversay update) is around the corner and for running RS2 when some new features start to come out in a few weeks/months!

    Looking forward to the OLED screen and its wider 4G band support mainly. I don't use camera much and didn't feel the need to spend double the money for a 950 and it's additional specs (CPU/RAM/storage) which I would hardly use like Windows Hello, nor do I do games on it.

    Might miss DTTW though if it doesn't come on this device.

    The 650 is a very good device, comparable to the speed of my 640 XL.

    Have the latest update now on the 650 and other than battery drain,this is a very snappy and fluid device.

    Just hope it will get DDtW as that is a hard one to go without once you're used to it. LOL.

    Those of you getting the 650 , I don't think you will be disappointed. Very good and efficient device that gets the job done. Loving the talk texting which works very well and the general feel of this phone. Sturdy metal band and a very nice amoled screen.

    Not to nitpick but I believe it's a plain OLED (or PM-OLED) "passive matrix" and not "active matrix" aka AMOLED screen

    Got my 650 a couple of hours ago! Immediately liking the phone! Posting some thoughts in the "Quick Impressions" sticky thread shortly...

    Went to the store and saw one the other day. If the WP store was better I'd come back and buy this. Best WP I've ever held in my hand.

    I just purchased one for 150 off Amazon last night because, why not? I have a much better phone (950 XL) but that white on white front is SEXY AF. Nothing compares, what a bad *** phone. And it has T2P which is awesome, I was going to get the HP Elite X3 but now that it does not have tap to pay I don't think I am going to get it.

    Bought mine basically just to see what the buzz is all about. It is an awesome phone, but I don't need it. Just got it unlocked.

    Just ordered it yesterday. I'd love Continuum but ... my work data can't spill onto my own devices, so there's no point. Phone tech is evolving fast enough that I'd feel foolish dumping premium $ on gear that's 'meh' in 12 months.
