We’re satisfied with the Prestigio MultiPhone 5550, its low price is not the only factor. The camera and the screen performed very well, especially when it comes to screen flickering, level of brightness, color reproduction and video recording. The battery life and the performance represented by MediaTek MT6582 are not so impressive, but they are also not flaws per se. And, of course, there is the dual SIM support and many useful apps preloaded. In other words, MultiPone 5550 is a lucrative phablet.
