When one considers that with the exception of the incorporation of the Continuum feature by Microsoft and a less powerful camera sensor and different build materials it is amazing to find that this device is very similar to the flagships (the 950 and 950xl). Running on Windows 10 is a remarkable bargain within this segment of the market for those looking for Microsoft productivity tools built into a mobile device. Now the device is likely to drop below the £100 €120 mark it is a good all rounder.
I've own this phone. I like it. It's powerfull and it's 5MPx camera is better than you think. The Windows 10 Mobile is worse than Windows Phone 8.1, cause it's a bit lagging and the 8.1 it's with prettier design. I know that cause I had Lumia 520 with 8.1 and if it was with the same specifications I would stay with it. Do you know how to change 10 to 8.1?
Atif, 10 Feb 2016Dear I want to buy lumia 550. Please tell me how to run this phone smooth??? Literally just did.
I had checked both lumia 540 and 550. and i found 540 touch is better. confuse between these two. which should i buy? dual sim or single sim doesnt make difference for me
Very good budget phone. Updating to through windows insider app build 105867.107 seems stable everything seems to work now. No hangs/restarts in lumia 550. I like the integration of skype,facebook and social apps in People/cantacts app. Skype and text messaging integration ic cool. Can use video call and chat skype in Messaging app. Windows 10 mobile is very cool i like its interface now much better than 8/8.1 semi transparent tiles and full transparency of tiles. Great display and good touch screen. Solid polycarbonate plastic is good quality. Until 2019 support for WM10 is good and long enough. Unlike my droid samsung note 2 cant get marshmallow.

And this is something I would try or you may have already done this. Have you connected the phone to your home Wi-Fi or network? Let me know, I just bought this phone and just need the memory card.
I have a problem. Multiple apps dont open. I got its battery out, but nothing. These apps are weather, camera, phosot and maps. The rest are opening. This is after the update i made in 10 Feb. I have the phone for one day. Thanks!
Unable to download apps. Keeps saying " you encountered an error. please try again later". I have been on this for over 24hrs and still not getting results. Rather frustrating. Would appreciate if i can be puit through on what to do.

Turning on location. Makes lumia 550 restarts or hangs. Specially in build 10586.29 the thing is turn off location and update it through windows insider. Mine is build 10586.29 touch screen is good. 5finger touch points in hardware test. Everything is fine except i cant use location. I haven't updated it yet to 10586.71 because im still waiting for 1 stable wm10 build.
I bought Lumia 550 but problem i charge my phone battery full even i switch on the battery saver option but within 2 hours battery comes to 50%
I bought this phone on 06.02.16 and I want to get rid of this horrible set by now. The old saying "all those glitters are not gold" is perfectly applicable for this phone. screen resolution is very good, built quality is also good. Good quality speaker & mic but with weak qualcom chipset it hangs 6/7 times a day and you have to remove battery to restart it. It happens specially when you open map ( activating location) to book app based cab service. Also touch sensivity is not up to the mark. All in all a total waste of INR 9000/-.
I started to read your comment but somewhere around half of it a bitter puking sensation enveloped me. Nokia is nowhere near bankrupt and they, like me, don't read 4 page emails with stories about unicorns.
