Average Rating:
82%


Description:

The 5.2-inch QHD 950 is a premium hexa-core Lumia that virtually turns into a PC via the Microsoft Display Dock and Windows Continuum. Stepping up to a flagship-tier plate is Microsoft's 2015 Lumia 950, a 5.2-inch QHD Windows 10 phone that can scale up its display onto an external monitor via the Microsoft Display Dock, consequently allowing you to use accessories like a mouse and a keyboard for work...

What We Like:

  • Being able to switch between a smartphone and a PC-like environment via Windows Continuum is a big plus
  • Its 564ppi is one of the highest on the market
  • The 950 models are among the first phones to feature a triple LED flash
  • The Type-C USB protocol is obviously more favorable than older USB standards

Average Rating:
78%


Description:

The octa-core Lumia 950 XL is a 5.7-inch Quad HD Windows 10 phone that puts you in a PC-like environment via Windows Continuum -- aided by Microsoft's specialized Display Dock. A brother of the 5.2-inch Lumia 950 boosted to 5.7 inches (QHD) and an octa-core 2GHz CPU, the 950 XL similarly lugs the Windows Continuum technology that basically lets you deck out your phone with external output devices (monitor, keyboard, etc.)...

What We Like:

  • Its face-based authentication challenges the rapidly-populating fingerprint-detector bandwagon
  • Its triple LED natural flash promises to provide more realistic lighting conditions than traditional flash types
  • Some of our tech-savvy friends might salivate over its ability to turn into a virtual CPU via Windows Continuum
  • USB Type-C is obviously more capable than all other previous USB protocols
