If you want a simple to use phone, go for iPhone, if you want a customizable phone(if you consider yourself a programmer) go for Android. If you want a business phone, or a low-budget phone go for Windows. Simple as that.

Anonymous, 08 Dec 2015the price of the lumia 550 can get you a mid range android phone that will smoke this lumia 550 crapHave you actually used the phone? If not, your opinion is completely irrelevant in this discussion.
As I have actually *been using* Lumia 550, I can say the phone is fast, responsive and lacks no features or applications I need in a smartphone. The OS is user friendly a VERY easy to navigate. My experience with company Android phone has been the exact opposite and I wouldn't want to use that OS on my personal device.
Mich, 19 Nov 2015Yes dear!! Strongly backing this up. Enough with the 1gb, 8gb nd 5mp already. Hoping we don't ... moreHave you ever heard of Lenovo? They have a laptop stores called ThinkPad which always is more expensive than IdeaPad even though the specs are lower. This is because it is better built in terms of durability. Same thing with Microsoft and other companies in low range smartphone market.

zavala, 04 Dec 2015very good phone, user frendly, it isn't expensive.snapdragon 210 . rip microsoft
I have been using Lumia 550 for 2 days now. For a cheap phone, everything works very well Â— the system is quick and responsive, the display is great, glance screen functionality is useful, battery life is good, the device looks very nice overall and isn't too big; there are a few bugs here and there (like putting in the contents of your clipboard sometimes when you want to type the "@" sign on a non-English keyboard) in the new Windows 10 Mobile OS, which I hope Microsoft fixes ASAP in the next update, but so far no show stoppers.
I can happily recommend the phone to anybody who a) wants a good value for money on a phone that gives you everything you need in a smartphone without having to pay a hilariously high price for it; b) wants to try out the Windows Mobile OS and the Microsoft "ecosystem" without spending too much money on it; c) wants to give a smartphone as a gift to someone who has never used such device before; d) uses Microsoft solutions (OS and other software on desktop PCs) in daily life and wants their phone to be able to sync with all that seamlessly.
I think this phone will be very popular with budget smartphone users, especially those who don't want the hassle of dealing with low-cost Androids.
I think the Mi4 Windows will be the phone to look out for. Will be around 10000 out very soon
just gonna be another crap from Microsoft. m not an expert in reading phone spec but to my experience in using window phone ,the newly released so called entry level phone by Microsoft which use snapdragon 200 range never work as expected-heating and poor battery. Never reach the point of lumia 520 and 630
Yes of-course, this mobile-phone should be a dual-sim cellular-gadget at least...
parvez, 23 Nov 2015exxcellent phone ... only not dual simYes of-course, this mobile-phone should be a dual-sim cellular-gadget at least...
El Barto, 29 Nov 2015Still Cortex A7? And 1,1 GHz?! A bad joke...It should have 8GB RAM! 500GB storage! 7 inch screen! Powerful! Mmm...
No Corning Gorilla Glass 3 - ClearBlack display Like my 635 no sure if upgrade worth it
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2015 PROS: Lumia 950 & Lumia 950XL coming soon. CONS: An affordable/student version Lumia... moreThe Lumia 550 should have been the first phone to be released in India I guess. A big market for affordable Windows Phone devices like the 520 and 630, and so also for the 550. Microsoft would be wise if they launch this set in India as soon as possible.
