The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL was launched in October 2015, and comes with a nicely sized 5.7 inch high resolution display and 3GB of RAM. Powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, this handset boasts a number of innovative features exclusive to the new Windows 10 mobile.
Featuring an impressive 20 megapixel camera, this phone will impress both tech geeks and photography lovers alike. The camera may not have as many innovative features as its competitors, but the high quality lens and the ability to take clear, high resolution snaps with a professional appearance has given it a good reputation. To the front of the handset, users will find a front-facing 5 megapixel camera that’s ideal for selfies or video calling.
The phone itself has a classic, simple design and features a plastic removable battery cover, something that many new range handsets don’t have these days. When it comes to colours, Microsoft has played it safe this time, excluding the bright and quirky colours that have been seen in previous handsets. The phone comes in a classic matte black to the rear with a glossy black around the Gorilla Glass protected screen at the front.
Along with a slot for a MicroSD card up to 200GB on top of the included 32GB, there are a range of innovative Windows 10 features included which are designed to inspire and impress. The virtual assistant Cortana is there to help with all your needs, whilst Continuum allows users to scale the software to TV proportions for a useful, desktop-like mode. Finally, iris scanning capabilities allow users to unlock their phone handset without even touching it.
