I really want to buy this phone. This phone has more Ram than any other mid range phones. Battery is good. I really wanted to buy Lumia 650 but 2000 mAh battery is not at all impressive. Then if you go with Lumia 640 XL LTE phone. the phone is good but the processor is SD 400 . This phone looks like better that all to me. Waiting for this Phone and NuAns Neo to be released in India.

I get somewhere between 6 hours of continuasly usage, and a day to a day and a half with normal usage to less usage. But indeed, battery is a bit spotty at times. I get great life and sometimes i get poorer life. Don't know why. But on avarage i get 24 hours. Charge it every morning. If is new, let it settle, will take some time. Till 3 weeks. After this weeks i reinstalled the system with recovery tool then upgraded it to the latest version. Never restored backups... Especially if they are made on windows 8.

First generation will not sell. Just like Win10 Mobile.
Wait for 2nd or 3rd generation of Win10 Mobile OS & smartphones.
That is, assuming Win10 Mobile will still around (and getting update) for the next 2-3 years.

Sure, Live Images first made an appearance on Windows Phone, however the iOS implementation is fundamentally different. You shall realize it when you use it. The Live Images on iOS kick into action when you hard press the screen unlike on Lumia which gets played automatically when you access the image in-question.

You need to admit that Android is miles ahead of Windows, for that I request you to try out the latest android. Go for a Nexus if you are in India!

By the way, Marshmallow is not latest OS release, it is Android N.

I must know it cause i owe the 950xl. Windows 10 is not selling great at this point, but would probably sell way better in a year. Just cause is made to progress and right now is ahead of it's time. When apple will start to copy it, and google will follow. Windows 10 will already be well grounded and here to stay;). As for why they release such devices? Well, is for sure not cause is a dead system, as you, ignorantly, claim.

Do you mean to say those feature are available in just release OS and how many device's it run. People are still amazed to see live image and context menu in 2 year old Lumia which are available in Iphone as living image and 3D touch(though its different). MS is stupid in marketing the feature it has. Still people are whining abt app not available in Windows store. It purely based on market share and region. If you live in US, China don't go for Windows and I live in India and I do find all the app which I used in my Andriod(but i don't need to reinstall OS every 6 month to improve performance in my Lumia and don't even remember the last restart I made in Lumia). If you're happy with Android good. But don't blame with out using windows phone. I have used both and I will always prefer Windows

Petr, 25 Apr 2016Why even bothering to introduce a phone on dead OS? MS killed W1... moreNo no... There is a confusion between Lumia devices and Windows OS. May the Lumia devices going to shut down not the Windows OS. Windows is the one of the most share holding OS in the Desktop Operating System market and there is no future of Windows OS without Windows Mobile OS. So, Windows Mobile OS is not going anywhere and there is a bright future in Apps as they are offering Universal Windows Apps Platform (UWP), that's the most engaging one.

Petr, 25 Apr 2016Why even bothering to introduce a phone on dead OS? MS killed W1... moreWhether it is dead or not is subjective. It is definitely nearly non existent in the Americas, but in other places it is still doing ok. But what's weird is that you claim that Microsoft killed it? I heard no such announcement. And it is not unheard of that a big company folds under only to rise on top again... Apple being such an example with Mac in the early 2000s.
I don't know why you are so angry at the W10m OS, I understand iOS fans to be angry at android, and vice versa, but why pour your anger at it?
BTW, if Microsoft's plan to offer direct code compatibility with iOS apps pans out, they will have a very healthy App market and given how mature and interesting the OS is, I wouldn't be surprise if they made a dent in the market eventually.
Whatever it is, always encourage all parties to compete, just look at how apple has a tendency to linger in innovation for as long as it is not challenged. Unless you would like to see iPhone 6ssssss in 5 years, the competition is better stay healthy :)

Why even bothering to introduce a phone on dead OS? MS killed W10M, no one's buying it,no one's developing apps. Done.
