If you need a fuss-free phone for productivity or if you want to try out Windows 10, the Lumia 650 might be for you. With its aluminum frame, a thickness of just 6.9mm and an affordable price tag (RRP: S$338), it is quite attractive. Specs-wise, I wish it could be better (especially for the cameras) since it has a lot of competitors based on this price range. It is currently available now in Singapore.
