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 ?

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

AnonD-139514, 02 Oct 2015Guys this is a budget phone of windows 10 mobile. And windows 10 mobile works as smooth as 70... more"As smooth as $700 Android..." I have the LG G3 and this phone is anything but that. Sure it has its moments but its starting to show its age after a year, when to be honest, it really shouldn't considering the specs this phone has. And I would switch to Windows Mobile but I don't know what Microsoft's plan is for the future. They don't have much confidence for their own mobile platform.
Guys this is a budget phone of windows 10 mobile.
And windows 10 mobile works as smooth as 700$ android or windows phone... This will be around 7 to 8k indian rs...i will be a hit with windows 10 mobilebin it
Its amazing how they bring new phones based on old chipset for a high price. now that they have closed the option to install apk files. there would be less interest.
