  • I've had a 920 since they 1st came available & liked it just fine. But, as we know, it & the 1020 have been ignored for a long time... no updating. LOL, mine was stuck on some Build from back last year. Anyway, due to a terrific 1/2 price deal today @ our MS store, I grabbed a 650. It is really quite ok, indeed! I reckoned I'd find it disappointing after the 920 but, not at all. Sure nice to be current, now & know this one will take updates.

    Some specifics:

    Today went from a 920 to a 650. The 920 was stuck in time w/ some 1511 version back in 2015 and today was a smart moment in terms of cost to do something about it. Anyway, was concerned might find the 650 a real step down in terms of hardware after a 920. Well, oh, my my, what a pleasant surprise! It is light as a feather, yet, solid, feels sturdy. It is not slow. The audio is not weak. The graphics are very nice & it's easy to navigate & use. Ran multiple windows, including videos (which ran happily & smoothly) & it didn't bog & sites loaded quickly. Quite impressed w/ this 650 and @ $100 (even $200) it's really especially impressive... does not feel or look like a low cost unit. Of course, the fine OS is a given and as for the device, would recommend a 650 to anyone w/out hesitation.

    Oh yes, forgot to mention...also nice it will Search & use the camera whilst locked.

    Cheers,

  • Kinda kewl to have a note come up on the PC screen saying, Hey, your phone is @ 10%, you might plug it in soon

    Puter w/ ESP, lol.

    Whatever Build was in the 920 never did that.
