Everything you need to know about the Microsoft Lumia 550

Product Information

Why choose the Microsoft Lumia 550?

Microsoft's Lumia 550 is an affordable smartphone, but don't be fooled by its small price tag. Inside, you'll find a whole range of brilliant features that wouldn't be out of place in a premium device. With a sharp HD screen, powerful core and Windows 10 installed, the Lumia 550 is a fantastic piece of tech.

Design

Microsoft Lumia 550 design

Microsoft's Lumia 550 has a sleek, angular design that's not dissimilar to the most expensive Lumia devices. Measuring 5.36 x 2.67 x 0.39 inches and hosting a crystal-clear, 4.7-inch HD display, the capacitive touchscreen offers plenty of space to browse the web, view photos and read eBooks.

With a 315ppi pixel density, the HD screen is sharp, vivid and full of detail.

Tech specs

You'll find Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system inside the Lumia 550, boasting many of the same well-loved features found on the PC version. The two synchronise exceptionally well, with OneDrive and Microsoft Office coming pre-installed.

Under the hood, the Lumia 550 houses a Qualcomm MSM8909 Snapdragon 210 chipset, a speedy quad-core 1.1GHz Cortex-A7 processor and 1GB of RAM. Together, the trio help the handset to run quickly and efficiently. You'll find 8GB of internal storage inside too, with the potential to upgrade to 200GB.

The removable Li-ion 2100 mAh battery promises up to 14 hours on talk time on 3G, or 60 hours of music play. Turning on battery saver mode can help your battery last even longer.

Camera

Spreading your photos across multiple devices is simple with OneDrive. Use them instantly on other Windows devices and print, send and share them with anybody.

Stand-out features

Cortana:Meet Cortana, your personal assistant that's designed to make using your phone even easier. To activate, simply say "hey, Cortana", and you can then send texts, search the web and even manage your calendar without pressing a button.

Moving from Android to this Windows 10 phone, my main complaint is the lack of flexibility in setting it up. For example, why does everything have to have one theme colour? I used to like my nice yellow icon showing a text received, and blue and yellow backgrounds for sent and received messages. But... read more

This phone is ok but could be easier to use in a number of areas. However it was the cheapest deal so it's only fair to expect to make some compromises.

Good hanset but basically as soon as you receive it, you can't return it. So be sure of what you want and need as you can't return it if you've turned it on.
