Microsoft Lumia 550 Unboxing and Quick Start

The Microsoft Lumia 550 is the cheapest phone running Microsoft’s new Windows 10 Operating system.  It’s the first range of phones to be release following the split from Nokia.

I’m a huge fan of Window phone.  I currently have a Nokia Lumia 930 as my main phone and love it.  So much i’m reluctant to get my “free” upgrade.

Admittedly the 930 is the flagship model running Windows 8 Phone, so doesn’t really compare in terms of hardware to the 550.  However Windows 10 does feel a little flakey when compared side by side to Windows 8 Phone.  To me it feels a bit like Windows 10 on the PC when compared to a fully patched Windows 8.1 system.  I’m sure this feeling will go over time as the OS is patched and early bugs get resolved.

I’ll be using it over Christmas mainly as a digital radio and media streaming to my bluetooth stereo, but I’ll have a play with some of the apps and provide a review in the new year!  Watch this space.
