Deal: get the Microsoft Lumia 650 at a 25% discount by the end of the week
The Microsoft Lumia 650 launched earlier in the year at a price of $199 but the Microsoft Store currently has it on sale at $149. That’s a 25% discount and a good price overall for a simple but effective handset.
The deal is valid until August 21, which gives you a little under a week to take advantage of this promotion.
As far as mid-range smartphones go, the Microsoft Lumia 650 isn’t exactly a handset with an impressive specsheet. The raw hardware includes a 5-inch AMOLED screen running at 720 by 1280 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 212 chipset (the most ‘energy efficient’ chip that Qualcomm currently makes) paired with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of integrated storage, a microSD card slot, and an 8MP-5MP camera setup.
In our Microsoft Lumia 650 review, we noted that the overall experience topped the expectations that one may have judging by the spec sheet. At $149 unlocked and without a carrier contract, the Lumia 650 might well be worth your money if you’re looking for a handset that’s just good enough for basic actions.
