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. At $140, it’s the cheapest Windows 10 handset you can buy so far.


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 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. Still, if Windows 10 it is, the 550 will be available in black or white, and goes on sale today.
