Microsoft Lumia 950XL review: Time-saver edition


Excellent photo and video quality ; Triple LED flash with unique after-the-fact flash power adjustment

The Microsoft's Lumia 950 XL is the face of the new Windows series and a reboot of the company's smartphone business. Microsoft may have been slow in adopting new tendencies and features, but it made sure everything is done right with the Windows 10...

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL review


A year ago, I gave up on Windows Phone. Frustrated by a lack of quality apps, poor hardware offerings, and a feeling of missing out, I bought an iPhone like millions of others. I haven't regretted...

Fast performance ; Camera takes great photos ; Lighter than previous Lumias

Boring design ; Not enough apps ; Windows 10 Mobile feels like a weird mix

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL review


Microsoft launched the Lumia 950 XL and its little brother, the Lumia 950 to usher in the new era of Windows 10 for mobile. The 950 XL is the larger of the two phones, packing a 5.7-inch display, but bringing few features of its own.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL has a pin-sharp, vivid display, plenty of power, expandable storage and a solid camera.

The app selection for Windows phone is still very limited and the phone's design feels plasticky.

While the Lumia 950 XL has the specs you'd want from a top-end phone, the Windows 10 experience offers no compelling reason to switch from iOS or Android.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Smartphone Review


Hello, Lumia! The new Windows flagship is finally here. Besides powerful components, you also get great features like Windows Hello and Continuum. The biggest drawback of the device is the software, because Windows 10 Mobile does not seem to be quite...

fast SoC, expandable storage, USB 3.1, high Wi-Fi range, Continuum, Windows Hello, good GPS performance, great cameras, good connectivity, great display with accurate colors and fast response times

and PWM, small outliers in terms of voice quality, appears a bit too simple, runtimes could be better, missing apps in the store, small issues with Windows 10 Mobile

The Lumia 950 XL is a smartphone with good specs and great features, which can be used as a PC replacement thanks to Continuum.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Review


After Windows Phone 8.1's release in April last year, the Lumia brand went undercover, as Microsoft released very few handsets and pondered what comes next for the operating system and its smartphone business. Fast forward to September 2015, though,...

Big display with reasonably accurate colors ; Elaborate camera that handles most scenarios reliably ; Features like iris scanner security and Continuum are quite advanced, although very niche at the moment

Mediocre design and build quality ; Very low maximum brightness for the display ; Frustrating user experience that's riddled with bottlenecks

Unfortunately, the Lumia 950 XL fails to champion Windows 10 before the better, faster, stronger competition of Android and iOS phablets. The operating system is still in need of improvement and doesn't make for the kind of polished user experience...

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL


Microsoft's first flagship Windows phone in some time sports a 5.7" QHD AMOLED display, the top of the line Snapdragon 810 CPU and it has a Windows Hello camera that knows you when it eyeballs your eyes. The larger companion to the Lumia 950 is the...

Finally, a new flagship Windows phone! Windows Hello iris recognition, big high res AMOLED display, fast CPU. Great camera

Looks don't match the price tag. Bugs and quirks hold this powerful phone back right now

There's a lot to like about the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. After all, it's the first flagship Windows phone with a big display and top of the line CPU in some time. The display is colorful and reasonably bright and the phone has one of the best rear...

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL review: a top phone if it wasn't for Windows 10 Mobile


It may appeal to enterprise professionals and Windows diehards, but is that enough?

Strong camera ; Decent screen ; User friendly UI

Average battery life ; Buggy OS ; Inconsistent iris scanner

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL: One platform to rule them all - Pocket-lint


Microsoft has thought long and hard about how all its disparate hardware exists and has come up with Windows 10 to bring it all together. Now the Microsoft

What the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL lacks in design wow, it makes up for in seamless cross-platform integration. That and a whole load of power in the spec department.
