Design and display

Stand out from the crowd

The Lumia 650 has a sleek modern design that’ll look good anywhere. It has a metal frame that’s highly polished for a clean look. It’s also been diamond cut so you get a precision feel. This phone really is more premium that its price tag suggests.

See more, do more

With a 5-inch HD screen, the Lumia 650 lets you see more of what you love. You can enjoy movies, books and games in perfect clarity wherever you are as the screen has been optimised for outdoor use. That means you don’t have to worry too much about annoying reflections.


Keep the memories

The Lumia 650 has an 8MP camera and an LED flash, the perfect combo for capturing great photos. Built-in software also lets you easily reframe, crop and add filters to your photos to make them look even better.

Stay in touch like never before

As the Lumia 650 is made by Microsoft, it comes with Skype preinstalled. The video calling app works brilliantly with the 5MP front camera so you can chat face-to-face with friends and family all over the world.

Under the hood

Fast performance

With a powerful quad-core processor and Microsoft’s Windows 10 operating system, the Lumia 650 feels really fast when you use it. Apps open in an instant and run smoothly, even if you’ve got loads of stuff open in the background.

Long-life battery

The battery in the Lumia 650 lasts ages thanks to its big size and the efficient new Windows 10 software. So even if you use your phone for loads of gaming or movie-watching the 650 should last more than a full day.

More apps than ever before

The Windows Store has over 350,000 apps so you can get top games, the latest news and gossip or your favourite social networks right on your phone.

Your very own PA

Want your own personal assistant? No problem - with Cortana you've got it. Whether it's calling your friends, keeping track of things online or setting an alarm, Cortana does it.

Stay productive

Wherever you are, the Lumia 650 will help you stay productive. It comes with Microsoft Office apps built in so you can do more on the move.

Microsoft Lumia 650 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 1 out of 5 by the_doug666 from Dreadful dreadful phone! Glitchy, slow, apps don't update...I can now download nothing from the app store either, literally every app I try and download 'not available for this phone'. My tech support team say Microsoft are no longer making phones so they are hard to provide support for - not sure if this is true or they just can't help me, but it would be a small mercy if Microsoft removed themselves from the phone market. Without doubt the worst phone I have ever had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by hotchocolatejunkie from I HATE MY PHONE WITH A PASSION! I bought this phone over a year ago and have hated it from almost day 1. If you are used to androids DO NOT GET THIS PHONE. THIS PHONE IS THE PHONE THAT APPS FORGOT!! Even apps like facebook are neglected. Same old posts for a week even if you click most recent. Check out the windows app store almost every single app has bad reviews because they just dont work properly and are never updated. On the rare occassion they do get updates it breaks anything good on the app. And thats if the app you want is even compatible with your phone.. And good luck finding a decent browser i had to settle for IE but that wont fully load pages half the time leaving you with only half an article before it auto closes on you. If you *only* want a phone for making calls and texting you will be fine. Battery life is decent but thats probably because you wont waste any battery doing anything else :p

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dinger1000 from A good phone if you are happy with Windows apps If you are going to buy this phone then check that the apps you want are available on Windows Phone system. There are almost no banking apps and, as others have pointed out few fancy apps such as Amazon Music. HOWEVER: This phone has an OLED screen which is superb for the Kindle app (which works well). It has a good battery life and many games for windows are better than on other platforms. Windows is also a nice, easy to use system and the actual phone is excellent. BBC iplayer works well and the camera is OK for the money. Having Office for free is nice too. We've had no freezing or other issues in the 6 months we've had it but we have turned off background apps we don't want. I agree with others though - I have a Nokia 735 and the 650 is not as good. Don't expect iPhone performance for 15% of the price!
