Old Lumia handsets are on sale now in the Microsoft Store

At the opposite end of the totem pole is the Lumia 550. For only $139, you're getting a handset with a 4.7-inch display, carrying a 720 x 1280 HD resolution. The camera combo from back to front weighs in at 5MP and 2MP respectively. Be warned however, this device has the Snapdragon 210 SoC under the hood and is equipped with just 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage.
The Lumia 950 will cost you $399, while the Lumia 650 is priced at $199. Obviously, time has passed these handsets by, and consumers passed by these handsets even when they were brand new. If you never got to experience the buttery smooth Windows 10 Mobile UI (which is one thing that Windows Phone always had going for it), here is an opportunity to pick up a Microsoft Lumia handset before Microsoft cleans out the warehouse completely and junks the remaining phones.

Too much money for old technology. They would have a hard time clearing out stock.......They obviously can absorb the losses! They should have a fire sale and sell them for $29-$99 like the HP TouchPad fire sale.....

Old tech or not, 950XL still one of the best W10M phones around!

One of the best... Crappy plastic phone with mediocre camera for 499$?!? Microsoft are really crazy. Do they know that OnePlus 5T cost the same and it's equipped with SD835 etc.. No connection to this world. Microsoft are aliens. P.S. Oooh, and windows phone is dead, you know? Best phone of dead OS.

Paying that much just to make phone calls. There's no proper app store, no updates, no security... It's good to those who what's to collect wp phones.

No security updates? Do some research and you'll find Windows 10 Mobile was one of the first to release a security patch for Spectre and Meldown. But don't let me stop you from living in your own private troll kingdom.

The constant hate on Windows mobile devices since the Lumia 920 by 'droid + iOS fans is ridiculous. You don't see winmo fans doing this on your OS articles. Completely juvenile and pathetic of these close minded trolls

As someone who has owned multiple Windows Phone/Mobile devices I can honestly say there wasn't much good about it. The inconsistency in the UI is shocking. WP8 initially suffered from so many bugs it was a pain to use. Random restarts happened several times a day and the update to truly fix that didn't come til months after. Internet Explorer was a horrible experience. Trying to use custom ringtones on it sent via Bluetooth was an impossibility without connecting it to a laptop. By any means it was half an OS compared to iOS and Android at the time. WP8.1 tried hard to sort out the UI issues only for W10M to bring it back again. The only thing they eventually got to work right was the Live Tiles but they were so boring... Wanna know what my feedback was to MS? I told them to start using their then still called Arrow Launcher as the basis on which to build their UI for Windows 10 Mobile. People like consistency. When MS ditched the familiar desktop environment for the Metro UI, people rallied against it because it was horrible, they hated it, it wasn't what they knew and loved about Windows, the consistency it had offered for years. Microsoft only have themselves to blame for the poor results on mobile. They tried to be different when their strength has always laid with keeping it the same. Slight UI changes over time. Easy does it. By being too different, nobody wanted to take a chance on it. This isn't hate, this is brutal honesty.

That's is more your opinion than anything. I've owned 920, 1520,950 and never had issues you complain of. It's good for consumers to have options, you don't like it that's fine, choose another OS. I have no issue with posts like yours, I'm sure you're smart enough to know the difference between posts like yours and the "hater" posts of no substance. The people that want everyone to use THEIR preferred OS and talk trash on any other OS are the people i was speaking of.

I have got three windows phones (Lumia 925, Lumia 930, Lumia 650) and these bloody handsets don't worth even a penny. How can I get rid of them?
