Since both hardware and software in lumia are integrated by MSFT, it undoubtedly will give best performance even if it have such low end CPU.. And it’s Lumia(carrying Nokia’s legacy) so there’s no doubt about hardware quality, it will be 100 times better than any other Chinese phone in same range…
This device could have been cheaper, around 13000 if MSFT had their own manufacturing unit in India.. That additional 2000 is cost of shipping, custom duty tax etc…
Anyway, Microsoft did better at pricing lumia 650 than apple did for iPhone 5SE.. LOL!!

I have a previous model 640 XL, after Windows 10 update, it is very smooth, battery life has always been excellent. Camera and photo editing apps are too good.

650 must be equally good.

Having used many Androids earlier, I moved to Windows for my personal use. I am happy about my move.
