G'day mate,

 

 

 

I have the Dual SIM version of the 650 and very much love it. Operating system is a lot nicer than WP8 was, with some of the key apps being much more convenient to use. Do you have any particular questions?

I have a DS too and love this phone. It looks nice and lightweight and cheap. With I'm enjoying the Anniversary Update v1607 of Windows 10 on this phone much more than v1511 of Windows 10 Mobile

The 650 looks like a flagship, it's a beautiful device and really thin and light oO Battery life for mine has been nothing special to speak of, my dual sim varient lasts a full day on charge with reasonably heavy use.

 

 

 

I've only got a couple of issues at the moment. 1) Hotspot sometimes wont let devices connect until i change the password, think it's happened once a month? 2) groove stops playing when the screen is off, with a reboot the only solution, perhaps twice in two months? These are OS issues though, the Lumia 930 had the same issues.

 

 

 

I bought it from the link below, and their customer service was exceptional.
