Unboxing and hands on with the Microsoft Lumia 550 (video)

Retailers are now beginning to ship the Microsoft Lumia 550 in the UK, meaning we finally had time to go hands-on with the device. We’ll be writing up a full review in the near future, but until then here’s the unboxing experience and my first impressions of Microsoft’s first low-end Windows 10 Mobile device.

The Lumia 550 is surprising in a few ways, it has a gorgeous HD screen at 4.7 inches, and is actually pretty quick at getting tasks done even with a Snapdragon 210 processor. It’s sporting 1GB of RAM with probably helps with the situation too. The build quality is what you’d expect from a sub-£100 device, but it’s not bad. In fact, I’m liking the glossy white backplate!

Interestingly, this device sports a Nano-SIM, not Micro-SIM which is what Microsoft usually puts in their low-end handsets. You’ve also got a MicroSD slot for storage expansion too, as this device comes with a measly 8GB onboard storage. Check out our unboxing above and let us know what you think of the Lumia 550 in the comments area below!
