tsimlo(gaba), 27 Oct 2016how do I remove hidden files in my lumia 550
Microsoft recently removed the FM radio function part of the operating system, but the FM radio still works with FM apps from the store.
Battery Life: OK
Screen: 4.7" screen is good. Though touch can be senseless once in a while.
Camera: 5 MP is good enough for many things.
It is slow and buggy. It takes at least 3-10 seconds for each app to start, even those which are running in the background. Also app crashes are very common (Especially Facebook and messenger apps). Microsoft infected the phones with something called "reboot and try again!"...very annoying.
Ms is asking for ratings all the time and its annoying after a while.
Of course, what can you expect from Microsoft and a 90Â€ phone ?
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2016really lumia does not come close to iphone or android Its not suppose to this phone costs £90 new the iphone £600 its like saying a Ford fiesta isnt better than a Rolls Royce.
I want to know that is this device suopport fm radio?i cant find itin the phone.plz help
Smartass, 22 Oct 2016they also removed FM radio app...really lumia does not come close to iphone or android
Arav2301, 15 Oct 2016They just remove the 15GB Cloud Space.they also removed FM radio app...
Working still good.Excellent 5MP shooter during daylight especially color contrast and noise.Overall good performance.
FM radio is in groove music in latest build ( and who the hell is using it?), idiots!
Read update details, dont update like an idiot, explore, be curious!
Compared with Lumia 630 this phone is very slow with low speed performance.
had the phone for 6 months now
just a little advice for old and new users
IMPORTANT: if you upgrade to the lastest build you will lose the fm radio [10.0.14393.67] and above
if you have already done the upgrade,and want to revert back to a previous version, then download windows device recovery and follow the on screen instructions to restore your phone, the current version on the server is different from the one being offered on the phone update.
heres a few apps i would reccommend:
1. 4 in a Row
2. Blackjack Fever
6. My Piano Phone
7. Note Plus
8. Office Lens
9. Simple Word Search
11. Super Street Fighter ll The New Challenge / Microsoft Translator / UltraNote/wifi Analyzer by Matt Hafner
These are the ones i have currently enjoyed using, one or two needs a little extra features, but all have been stable and the footprint on the battery has been negligible, so no sudden battery drains
ghaga17, 04 Oct 2016My friend bought this phone, it was made from Vietnam. Is it good or bad?Now you put at the table a very interesting and important question - not only for lumia 550, not only for microsoft but for all the brands and manufactures - but its a very ''large'' and huge topic to analyse it here. In Vietnam are made also lumia 950 and 950XL if i'm not wrong, but also the Samsung note 7 (i think you already know the ''exploding'' news about that).
Now regarding lumia 550 no, its not bad at all that is made in Vietnam. Has a very good build quality, display, camera. In my opinion is a very very good choise.
Had this phone almost a year and just cannot wait for my contract to end - total rubbish. My previous windows phone was much better but with so many apps not being available to windows phone, it will soon be time to say goodbye - enjoyed the idea but too many drawbacks.
Just bought Nokia 550 3 months ago . It is working fine but today 8/10/2016 I couldn't get f.m. radio on it. Called in at my ee shop and was told that nokia had removed this from my phone and that I would now be unable to be able to have this function. Not a very nice thing to do Nokia it does nothing for your customer relations, if I had known this was about to happen I would not have bought it.
