Microsoft has cut the price of its Lumia 550 in the UK and Ireland by 20%

Last month, Microsoft cut the price of its Lumia 950 and 950 XL in the UK by 17%. It has now applied permanent price cuts to its other two Windows 10 Mobile handsets as well. Today, it slashed 25% off the Lumia 650 in the UK, and 35% off in Ireland, less than five months after it launched.

The Lumia 550 went on sale in the UK for £99.99 SIM-free in December. In April, it cut £10 off that price in a special offer that ended on June 30, but its official full retail price remained at £99.99.

Today, Microsoft quietly trimmed 20% off that price in the UK, reducing it to £79.99 SIM-free.

And as with the Lumia 650, the 550's price has also been permanently cut in the Republic of Ireland. Previously sold for €129.99, Microsoft has now reduced it by €30 (23%) to €99.99.

But even at these reduced prices, you should think carefully before buying one. Unlike the impressive Lumia 650, the cheaper Lumia 550 earned itself a pretty poor score in our review.
