The Microsoft Lumia 550 really is a jack-of-all-trades. It has a beautiful 4.7-inch screen for games and movies (perfect for Christmas entertainment), a 5MP camera that punches well above its weight, and it comes with the latest Windows 10 operating system.

The new software brings great features and improvements, plus it keeps old favourites like the Cortana voice-controlled personal assistant and Microsoft Office apps.
