just got an MICROSOFTMDG update in my lumia 550
after the update it became really smooth
thank you for the update microsoft.
and guys please stop critisizing windows phone 10
its better than android at least
just it have limited amount of apps.
and please dont judge the hardware of the lumia.
its not an android.
Had this phone for 5 days and have had to charge it every night even though I turned off the Bluetooth and had it on standby during the day, cheap and not cheerful will not buy another Microsoft phone
Fails miserably as a device, constantly rebooting , UI takes 10 mins to raster if ever. Makes calls on its own and wont hang up . Very disappointing and Metoeor to boot in trying to get it replaced is a nightmare .

Hello phone communities,i had use almost all os and i find that if you love music,want to be unique or different from normal user then go for windows. Try use lumia models with clearblack screen and dolby sound system. You definitely feel like holding flat hd tv in your hands. Every people have their own favourite os. It depends whether you love colourful tiles or normal iconic menu..
hey this phone with this price its great phone i use it 40 days and nothing problem 4- 5 day battery with open 24 hour wifi and whats up aplication but first close the all backround aplication, upgrade the windows 10 then all its ok

The photos and video show perfectly well in the galleries as you call it, in my phone. And what is it that you need to find anyway. All the apps can be found if you swipe left from the start screen. And windows 10 mobile has got one of the best settings menu. It is very easy to use. I get it that you are new to the operating system and cannot adopt properly as you are used to android or whatever os you have been using. Using a operating system requires basic common sense and needs some certain exploring as it is with android and ios to understand it better. Sorry to say but you are very ignorant. You have no right to judge any os. You are just playing favourites here.
I was using android ( Samsung a) the phone used to hang frequently then my friend suggested windows phone n now i am very much satisfied with 550 though there is limitations ....eg applications ....phones runs smoothly with mere 1 gb ram....thanks microsoft

Can anybody tell me is there compass sensor in this phone? or mapping application? IMO and facebook video calling? as not available in 535...
Hi guys. I used Lumia 520 for about 2.5 years. Impressed by windows user interface I had pretty much decided that even my next one would be windows. Windows 10 was available on expensive ones like 950. But then i got to know about this mid level priced lumia 550 has inbuilt windows 10. So i bought it instantly without giving it much of a thought. Pretty impressive look. Nice hd screen. Pixel density about 312 ppi i guess. So overall a good looking phone. Problem starts when you start using it. Lumia 550 is really slow. Clearly it can be seen that windows10 is in a developing stage. Software crashes every now and then. Internet speed is too slow if you compare with androids of the same range of even lower. Having said that obviously that interface is still so good. Its definitely a productivity phone as they call it. But there's a lot of work to be done in it. Surely after an year or so windows10 will be as smooth running android, and i hope it does.
guys please someone answer , is facebook messenger calling available on windows 10
as i use a lumia 540 windows phone 8 and this feature is not working
so is it available on widows phone 10 ?
and is there a way to make it work on lumia 540 ?
thank you and i really appreciate
Ratan, 27 Mar 2016I have bought a Microsft Lumia 550 on 24.01.2016. Recently, I have faced some problems. 1st Ba... moreHi Ratan. I also brought Lumia 550 recently and I have also noticed the same issues. I just want to tell you that the battery problem you are taking about is not related to software update. It's an hardware issue, but still you can try a few things to fix it. If you are using any type of cover for the phone, consider removing it if you are using the device for a long period. Next thing you can try is switching off unnecessary background apps in settings and also switching off auto sync in calendar, mail, one drive and Microsoft edge. Do same with other third party apps, for example apps like runtastic automatically sync in background and works even under lock screen. You can always change this in their settings. Lastly, you can turn on battery saver mode when you know you won't be able to charge yoiur phone for an extended period; for example travelling.
