    Reminds me of the Samsung Alpha a few years ago. Great looking but not very powerful.

    I agree, the 650 is not as trans-formative as the 640. Its more iterative.

    I never said I was going to. I said that the 640 might be better, and that the 650 doesn't do enough to justify the price tag. If your comeback is half-baked spec breakdowns that claim that because you think the 650 is pretty and maybe a LITTLE bit faster, then I've got no interest in wasting my time with someone uninterested in a legitimately intelligent discussion.

    The 650 is a year newer, yet you can't definitively claim it as superior, and you ESPECIALLY can't do it when price is a factor. It had a year to progress, and it looks like it stood still. It didn't get cheaper than the preceding device, but it didn't progress the hardware, choosing to drop in SoC class to stay inexpensive to produce. All you can really say is for-sure better with the 650 is the storage, but storage is insanely cheap to produce, so that it added 8 GB of storage is really just a bare-minimum bump that means nothing to me.

    Seems like the 212 isn't regarded as a deal-breaker after all... thoughts?

    Without seeing a screenshot to compare for your question, I can't say.

    You are talking about the apps side by side in line instead 2 lines of apps?
    It's the "phablet mode" when you have less zoom in the settings.

    Pretty shoddy, Microsoft has to offer more in the midrange if it wants to keep its remaining customers. I have a 735, paid about the same as this phone costs 17 months ago, but this is a downgrade, no compass, no wireless charging, only marginally faster processor and double the ram, useful but not much, given that more than a year has passed since releasing the 735. I'm not sure I will replace my 735 with another Windows phone next year.
