Lumia 550 is a Cheap-as-Chips Windows 10 Phone

By Jamie Condliffe on at

If for some strange reason you need a new Windows phone but don’t have a big budget, the Lumia 550 is likely the thing for you. Being marketed at just £90 SIM-free, it’s the cheapest Windows 10 handset on the market.

Don’t expect much in the way of specs from the plastic-cased smartphone. While it’s got a 4.7-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, and 4G LTE, its lower specs mean it won’t support some of the more interesting Windows 10 features—like Continuum—boasted by its more expensive siblings.

The Lumia 950 didn’t exactly set our world on fire, though, so you might be better sticking with Android at this price point. [Microsoft via Verge]
