PhoneArena

A decent low-cost choice

from PhoneArena

The Desire 650 looks like an attractive proposition in its sub-$200 category. It has a fairly stand-out design and some nice touches like stereo speakers and neat Android interface. It is plagued by a subpar camera performance and unimpressive battery life, though, as well as below average call quality.
