Microsoft anounces a beautifully crafted but underpowered Lumia 650

Microsoft has anounced a new budget smartphone running Windows 10 mobile .The new phone - named Lumia 650 is a beautifully designed smartphone packed with some questionable specs .The phone , designed with a aluminuim frame brings more class than the flagship 9xx series and unlike the boring flagships , this phone also has a amoled display -with clear black technology , this enables colors to pop and blacks to remain pitch black .the rest of the specs include a 8mp rear camera and a 5mp fromt camera .Priced at a somewhat affordable $200 price ,the phone is a bit of a bargain but considering that rival Android devices such as the Honor 5X offer better specs this phone is a bit underwhelming considering that it only has a Snapdragon 212 Soc , although it is faster than the low end s200 soc , it is still slower than the s400 unit (slower gpu performance) found in a bulk of handsets and even microsofts predecessor - Lumia 630/640 .The phone however does feature 1GB of ram but its doesnt mean that it will support microsofts primary mobile features - Microsoft Continuum and Microsoft hello , the lack of such features remains as a question because Microsoft hopes that the 650 will appeal to business buyers .But considering that the phone costs $200 it is a bit too much considering that rival products offer better specs ,better build ,  more functionality and tons of more apps for the same cash .
