Microsoft is still utilizing it's stock of snapdragon 200 series processors.
According to Lumia 550 fact sheet.
Ports: microSD™ 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.
Aya ! only 3GB inbuilt memory for user and 1GB RAM.
What a wasted of time on doing so much research by Microsoft.
I do rather choose Lenovo K3 note at the same price range.
GOOD NEWS *
1.Lumia 550 has Gorilla glass 3 screen protection, 2.Fast battery charging, 3.15GB free One Drive storage.
4.Continuum is certain as parts of WD10 OS features, will be available for all lumia with Wd 10, coming out directly from the box.
Is there Gorilla glass screen protection available for lumia 550 ? ? #
It's very much essential for all touchscreen smartphone against scratched and Cracks from pocket keys, pen etc.
No clear black display
No gorilla glass
No IPS display
No dual sim
Gpu is still old adreno 304 which is weak then Lumia 520 adreno 305
Front recording is vga not even fwvga
Thickness is 9.9
Still the price is 140 dollar almost 9k rupee
I don't know what's Microsoft is thinking. The price should be 100 dollar not more
Many OEM are giving
at least snapdragon 410 and some are giving snapdragon 615 in this price range with 3gb of ram
So yes this phone is failure
Microsoft need to learn something from other OEM if they want to survive in the games of smartphones world
I think it has the best phone camera until now. The images looks just amazing, and the price is not that high. I would buy one if i had money

Anonymous, 09 Oct 2015Your right !!! Especially when it's close to 2016 already!!! You should consider that the value of the ram and processor are meaningful beside the type of operating system. We have a lumia 530 and a lumia 930. 930 is perfect, but 530 can execute heavy 3d games in an acceptable manner. According to the price range. I think this configuration is a good option and brings a good performance with its operating system.
TBK, 08 Oct 2015Processor, Ram very low &be improve camera Your right !!! Especially when it's close to 2016 already!!!
