Expected price of this smartphone is Rs,7,999 in India which is quite good. Lets see what on what price the company will launch it.
Fast battery Charging (i.e Quick Charge 2.0/ upcoming QC 3.0).
Is it available on Microsoft Lumia 550 ?
lumia 550 comfirm better than lumia 535,until 430. because 550 uses the sd210 processor which can support lte 4g,play full hd video. better slightly !.. my opinion is those are using nokia feature phone like nokia 105 or 215 , maybe can change to buy this lumia 550 lte4g.because some of the country will end in use of 2g feature phone after 2017... like singapore, japan, austria... ... .but finally if the prices is nearly to lumia 640 series .you dont have to buy it... if the price cheap cheap you guys choose lumia550 which can whatsapp ,got sd card 128.and many many the feature phone nokia 105 215 cannot perform..right? oh! by the way it is window 10 os again..... all in one platform ....awesome..
People, what are you talking? Maybe it's not mentioned in the specs on this site, but Lumia 550 will have LTE for sure. It has Snaprdagon 210 which maybe is a low-end processor, but the main improvement on it over Snapdragon 200 is that it has LTE connectivity. Look at the other phones with 210 chipset. All of them have LTE. So will this phone.
I've used both Android and Windows Lumia phones- my personal favorite is the Lumia - Androids are unnecessarily complicated and the Lumias have better build quality.
However, whether Android or Windows is better depends on what you want.
If you want Navigation, Office and Gaming apps then Lumias are the better option, if you want communication, music, videos, shopping, internet surfing apps then Android is better.
LTE features is now available on the cheapest touch screen phone in India.
What's wrong with Microsoft ?
The Wise, 02 Oct 2015"As smooth as $700 Android..." I have the LG G3 and this phone is anything but that.... moreIf I were you, I'd better wait for either 950 (if you still want a flagship), or 750/850 (midrange), which probably not gonna have continuum but better spec than this one.

Amoled and less power compare to ips...lol...they may have a bit decrease power consumption in amoled still it consumes more power compared to ips...when displaying black colour though they have low power consumption but when displaying white they are much much much higher power consumption.....and talking about web pages and maximum app..they are mainly white....where as ips consumes same power regardless of whether black or white.....go get some knowledge and do your homework properly first before spreading any rumor
Microsoft must expand the platform developer to make windows app then only there will be demand for budget phones
Windows phone works smoother they don't require huge amount of RAMs and over powered SoC .
AMOLED consumes less power as compared to IPS . Battery is also ok.
The only thing which bothers me is the LTE support which was first rumoured but now GSMArena is showing HSPA
