The Microsoft Lumia 650 was one of the companies first devices to be shipped with Windows 10 Mobile. It was available to buy even before Windows 10 Mobile was available to older phones and was aimed on business customers. The beautiful deign and the cost effectiveness are two very good reasons to choose the Lumia 650 over let’s say the Lumia 950 or the Lumia 950 XL.
