Microsoft’s next Lumia device makes an appearance on the FCC’s website

    Snap 212? If it sells for any more than $125 it’s overpriced.

      That’s your expert opinion huh? Sorry to disappoint but seeing as the 550 is $189 the 650 will be out of reach for you.

      That’s for a factory-unlocked, LTE, dual-SIM model. A single-SIM, or a 3G-only, or a carrier-locked model would be cheaper. It depends on what you’re comparing against. For example, the Lumia 640 ranges from $60 USD (about $85 CAD) for carrier-locked single-SIM LTE, to $245 CAD (factory unlocked, LTE, dual-SIM). So dual-SIM, factory unlocked, etc., can as much as triple the cost.

      An Android with that SoC would definitely suck. Meanwhile, a BLU Win HD with a 200 runs rather well. It’s not fair to compare SoCs across different platforms.

      This. 1000x this. Whoever thought that the day would come that Windows would be considered fast vs. the competition? But Windows 10 seems noticeably faster than MacOS X on similar hardware (and certainly boots up from a cold start much faster), and Windows 10 Mobile seems faster and more efficient than Android (especially on entry-level hardware where running Android is a bad joke).

    • MassDeduction

      Microsoft makes a lot of variants of their phones these days. For example, the Lumia 640 comes in the following configurations:

      – non-LTE single SIM
      – non-LTE dual-SIM
      – LTE single SIM
      – LTE dual-SIM
      – plus several more country/carrier variants

      The cost of a single-SIM 3G-only Lumia 640 is much lower than a dual-SIM LTE version. Plus entry-level Lumias often have cameras that rival the cameras in many Android flagships.

      There are so many variables that your pronouncement is unsupportable. Since Windows doesn’t need high-end hardware to run well, they’ll often deck out entry-level Windows phones with features they wouldn’t even joke about putting on entry-level Android handsets.

      SD 212 is the equivalent to the current SD400.
