Powered by the new Windows 10 for phones, the Microsoft Lumia 550 has everything you need to help you #achievemore.
Microsoft Office apps
As our lives become ever more mobile, so does the technology and services we use.
The Lumia 550 comes preinstalled with Office apps like Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint so that you can be productive wherever you are.
You do not need to wait until you reach the office to view or edit Microsoft Office documents anymore. Instead, you can do it on the train, at the airport, in the back of a taxi – anywhere. By syncing your documents on OneDrive you are no longer desk-bound and can view and work on them anywhere with your Lumia 550.
A screen dream
The Lumia 550 features a premium 4.7-inch HD display that facilitates document viewing and editing and provides a great canvas for viewing your photos and browsing the Web, even in bright sunlight.
With Windows 10, your photos are always easy to find, great to look at, and ready to share. The new Photos app makes sense of all your photos, syncs them, gets them organized and makes it easy to navigate across your Windows 10 devices – ideal if you’re taking photos of receipts that need to be included in an expense report, for example.
Microsoft Edge is the all-new browser that gives you a great on-the-go reading experience. With the new reading view, you can enjoy online articles in a distraction-free layout optimized for your screen. You’ll also like the convenience of having webpages and PDF files saved and organized in your reading list for enjoying later.
Outlook Mail on Windows 10 provides a rich set of tools that will help get your email across in exactly the right way.
Besides using standard features such as “reply” or “forward,” with the familiar and rich capability of Microsoft Word built into the authoring experience, you can also format your message to include highlighted text, font colors, bold, italics and underscores, as well as strikethroughs.
Cortana, your truly personal digital assistant
Your Lumia 550 comes with your truly personal digital assistant to help you get stuff done faster and easier.
Cortana* can learn where you work and live** based on the locations you spend most of your time in to help you get to meetings on time. For instance, it can recommend whether you should leave early or not based on real-time traffic conditions.
Appointments are synced across your Windows 10 devices—such as the new Surface Pro 4 tablet or Surface Book—so you’ll always be up-to-date, and even receive reminders from Cortana.
Speedy downloads and uploads
Imagine that your boss emailed you several documents to review just as you head out of the office on a Friday afternoon. Rather than returning to your desk, download those files onto your Lumia 550 using the superfast 4G LTE internet connection.
Once downloaded, you can quickly view the documents on the 4.7-inch HD display and make any changes before sending them to the relevant members of your team.
With free secure cloud storage on OneDrive you can store and sync information across your Windows 10 devices and will always have access to your files also on your phone.***
One major factor for many when considering a productivity smartphone is the cost. Fortunately, the Lumia 550 comes with an affordable $139 USD price tag before local taxes and subsidies.
