Hi, I bought Lumia 550 because of its windows 10 OS. But it is really disappointing. All my expectations got shattered. During initial few days the battery got discharged very fast and mobile is also heated up. It was then rectified at Microsoft service center. But again after 1 month the same problem repeats. moreover speed is also very slow. Can anybody suggest what has to be done to overcome the issue. I am from India.
Totally disappointed in this phone. I really wanted to give Lumia a try: I have an iPhone 6 and BB Classic. WhatsApp crashes, freezes, even reboots don't seem to fix it. Someone sends you a photo and the app freezes! Crazy. WhatsApp ought to be minimum working app considering the number of people using it. Even my old Nokia 515 did much better with WhatsApp!
A big surprise for its great screen. With the latest updates Winodws 10 for moving to improved enough, although there are still details to fix. You have to give Microsoft time to mature operating system, but are on the right way. Powerful sound but the speaker should be on the front of the mobile. The only negative camera is not very good but for the price you can not ask for more. From Spain. See you soon.
I have to retract all previous positive statements on here about the 550, mine has started to act up now freezing up and apps not working also the Facebook app proves problematic for me I cannot seem to upload photos I have taken to my Facebook account, which I believe is a common problem, unfortunately the phone has become very unstable and is kept up to date, I wouldn't recommend unless Microsoft get everything right on it but they keep delaying updates which it looks like people are getting sick and tired of.

Atif, 02 Mar 2016I am using lumia 550 from a week. Its really a nice phone everything is great. But can any one... moreCortana isn't available in India yet. If you want to use it, change region of your phone to USA and language to English(US). There will be update available for cortana and now you can use cortana.
Great specs, great performance, great price absolutely spectacular phone.
Very disappointed with the phone and Windows 10. After breaking my Nokia 735, which ran Windows 8.1, I thought I'd upgrade to Windows 10. Very disappointing and a terrible choice. My old phone was far superior in just about every single way. It was cheaper, maps app was better, music app was better, internet was better, it was easier to use. This phone is slow gets very hot when it is running. This phone is a step backwards and most of the apps for the phone developed by Microsoft such as Facebook are littered with bugs and almost unusable. As a dedicated windows user, hopefully they can fix up the shortcomings and start producing decent products at a good price like Nokia did for the last few years.
I have one more question.
Is it possible to update software (apps and win updates) on lumia 550 over cellular data, or you have to be connected on wifi?
I am thinking to buy lumia 550. Can anybody tell to me, I you start wifi hotspot (internet teethering) on lumia 550, and if you connect laptop to this internet hotspot, and if you dont make any data over internet with this laptop, if you dont use this laptop for cca 5 hours, will it be connect to this hotspot, or will lumia 550 shut off hotspot?
Can anybody try this and inform me? Thanks...
I see that There is no option to have hotspot always on, win 10 mobile shut down hotspot if it is not used for some time... But, if I conect laptop to hotspot, and if I dont use laptop, will it shut down hotspot or not?
What if I put lumia 550 on charger? Will win 10 mobile then shit down hotspot or not?
I am using lumia 550 from a week. Its really a nice phone everything is great. But can any one tell that why i do not have cortana in my brand new lumia 550?????
