    Hi wc users

    I'm really thinking about buying the Lumia 550 as a backup device. I'll have to return my Galaxy S6 soon because of camera issues. So that means I'll be phoneless for 3 to 4 weeks.

    I was mostly thinking about the Lumia 550 because it's cheap, about 130 here. Is it really worth it? I know the Lumia 640 is better at about everything but it's 170.

    Thanks in advance?

    Hi Joedels!

    You are true, Lumia 640 is better phone. But If you don't want to spend €170, I think Lumia 550 is good choice.

    Budget Windows Phones surprise many people. Since it is just a backup and a test of W10Mobile, I say go ahead and save a few quid.

    Hopefully you will pleasantly surprised.

    Thanks for the replies! Yeah it's just a backup phone but I will be playing with it ofcourse. I had a lumia 925 before and I absolutely loved wp 8.1. I have heard good things about low end Lumias, but I don't expect that much considering the price.

    A lowly Lumia 521 brought me in and kept me here...
