Bought Lumia 550 about a month ago and I was positively surprised. Relatively fast, decent camera and the UI is probably the best on the market.
After a while I noticed some lag in using it, which is normal for a phone in this price range. Thougth that updates would fix some if it later, which brings me to my biggest gripe. I can't get the phone or the apps to update. I have unlimited 4g plan, so I figured it'd be fast. That was until I found out that you can't update phone or apps using mobile data. And I haven't been able to get the updates with wifi either. Another matter, hotspot works for about an hour until it just stops, and I have to restart the phone to have another hour of usage.
So I can't recommend this buggy mess to anyone. My first experience with a windows phone will most likely be my last.
Lumia 550 is a nice phone. I'm using it for two months. With the heavy usage i'm giving this comment. This phone is good for multitasking Because it won't hang. Camera is good provide shard image shots. Outdoor shots are awesome. Front camera is superb. Battery stands for a whole day on heavy usage with data connection. Display awesome.

It does't have the language option, to send massage in Hindi or Kannada. That way Lumia 520 is perfect.
Win10M build 10586.218 is stable now with this phone. Windows 10 is just evolving with many updates for pc and phone. T.Y. MS for updates no hang or reset for me. One thing i like with this phone is the loud speaker is much louder than my lumia 830. 😁

So I think it is the same on win 10. It's not like LG where you can't choose and all of apps are going on phone. I change my Android phone before 2 years and I can't evan think about turning beck on it. Windows is more powerful than android
