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 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 has been making big promises about Windows 10 Mobile for more than a year now. These have ranged from lofty claims about a new category of "Universal Apps", iris-scanning Windows Hello tech and, of course, the Lumia range's trademark PureView...

Decent screen ; Good camera ; Cortana

Dull design ; Not enough consumer apps ; Buggy

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.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL review

 

Tempting for the Windows faithful, but no one else

Great Screen ; Fantastic camera ; Strong performance

Inconsistent battery life ; Lack of quality apps ; Many bugs still present

With a superb camera, lovely screen and smooth performance, the Lumia 950 XL is an easy sell for the Windows faithful. But with few apps, many areas in need of polish and inconsistent battery life, it isn't for everyone.
