hi been a user of Nokia phones before and I agree that their camera is way far more better results than others so what factor could it be; the material design/used, the application that tweaks the hardware, the OS that runs the device or just simply they didn't give-up the design features of their creation/discoveries, clever!
Don't look at specs i bet you Lumias 5 mp is far better than others having 8 mp. I own a galaxy j5 13 mp cam and a year ago i used to have lumia 630 with 5 mp but the camera on lumia was better, its clear black display was better, its performance was solid no android can give u such performance plus stability.
hi,if they provide a 1.5 RAM, 16 GB internal, 8 rear/ 5 front cam i think all phones on this category will surely be beaten just take the name Microsoft WX!
gud features with the ws10. waiting for 550 microsoft always provide the usefull features with the lesser price m a huge fan of windows
Lumia 550 is a better phone.but it would be much better if they add some feature like clear black display,corning gorila glass 3,cracth resistance glass and ips lcd display.We will pay for those if they attach.Reall I am a big fan of windows phone:-)
If MS stert using better chipsets,than they wont be able to keep the price down.
On the other hand Windows doesnt need that much power.It will work just fine even vith 210 SoC
good one :) it fits exactly what I need . release it as early as possible ...
Features are not impressive. Why Microsoft still stuck up with Adreno 200 variants for their class 1 entry level tier, no difference with 2 Years old Nokia lumia.
Microsoft should first improved/give more care to the budget lumia features, for the general public to get familiar and impress with Wd10 platform.
This is an old tactic, but it could set a solid milestone for Microsoft future lumias.
Because, high end lumias wouldn't be affordable by millions, especially in the developing countries. Without the common people's support, lumia market could still remain stagnant. This could further push up Chinese smartphones to occupied all available free space globally and Microsoft would be regretted later on.
The only wow! Factor about the new Microsoft Lumia 550 is the expandable memory card slot of up to 200 GB and the Windows 10 operating system, provided the information about the phone is correct.Why would a budget windows 10 phone be fitted with only 2 Mega pixel for selfie or video calls, and only 5 MP for rear camera ? If I were Microsoft, I would improve the specifications of the budget and business class phones to make them more attractive to buyers, particularly in developing countries where it is fashionable to compare the specifications of 'Pure Chinese Phones ' that are budget friendly but the user lacks seamless experience with other phone companies that guarantee seamless experiences but are a bit expensive, and seems to maintain or recycle their specifications with minor adjustments -while maintaining the unique specifications meant for the high-end ones or the top-notch.If phone companies like Infinix, Huawei, lenovo, and Gionee are incorporating lots of specifications in their budget friendly phones,why shouldn't Microsoft, the giant, have a rethink ?
Lumia 540 could be a much better budget phone if Microsoft would increase its RAM to at least 2GB and upgrade or protect its Screen with corning gorrilla glass 3 technology.The sound quality of the phone's speaker will also have to be looked into.
pk, 12 Oct 2015at presently when other mobile company give latest phone with 2 gb ram and advance processor, ... morebecause windows phone uses Microsoft .net framework, which has Garbage Collection(throw away unnecessary data automatically) so it takes lesser ram than android...
It seems that lumia550 supports VoLTE?
Microsoft is still utilizing it's stock of snapdragon 200 series processors.
According to Lumia 550 fact sheet.
Ports: microSDÂ™ slot, supports up to 200 GB of expandable storage4
This means the microUSB port is only for charging, not data.
at presently when other mobile company give latest phone with 2 gb ram and advance processor, Microsoft is why adher to inferior contents.
Cheap phone but good and it will certainly get future updates, something you can't say cheap androids will get. Worth it's money, especially when they will do the first price cut.
I think its a best phone in this price range considering its OS i.e. W10. It has glance screen, Quad Core processor, 1GB RAM which works perfect in Windows. Those saying its a bad phone, seriously they should not even look at Windows phones. They rather use that ugly Android phones.
