Mi­crosoft Lu­mia 550

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Culture -

The Mi­crosoft Lu­mia 550 isn’t the cheap­est smart­phone on the mar­ket, but it’s ac­tu­ally good value when you con­sider how much you get for the price. One of the coolest things about Win­dows phones is the My Fam­ily app which al­lows par­ents to con­trol what apps users can down­load and which web­sites can be vis­ited.

Aside from the bevy of parental con­trols, Win­dows phones are equipped with OneDrive and Cor­tana. With OneDrive, your kids can ac­cess Mi­crosoft Of­fice ap­pli­ca­tions like Word or Pow­er­Point, do their home­work or re­vise their notes wher­ever they go. While Cor­tana, (pretty much the same as Ap­ple’s Siri), is a help­ful per­sonal as­sis­tant who’ll be able to an­swer ques­tions your kids might have and re­mind them about their daily sched­ules. This model uses a Qual­comm Snap­dragon pro­ces­sor that will make multi-task­ing much smoother and com­bined with the 1GB of RAM and Win­dows 10, this phone is a good performer and has rel­a­tively up-to-date tech­nol­ogy

The phone is fairly com­pact, which suits smaller hands, but the 4.7” dis­play still gives a de­cent amount of space to play on. There’s an added bonus if your kids have an Xbox, as the Lu­mia 550 in­te­grates neatly with Xbox Live al­low­ing the kids to play games on both de­vices. All things con­sid­ered, the Lu­mia 550 has every­thing a kid could ask of their first smart­phone and we bet the price won’t hurt your wal­let.
