Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL: The Most productive smartphones on the Planet
Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are the first Lumia phones to come pre-loaded with Windows 10 – delivering on the promise of one familiar and consistent experience that transitions seamlessly across Windows devices from key apps like built-in Office to access all your files, both personal as well as professional, via One Drive and the cloud.
Both Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL feature Continuum for phones, enhanced by the optional Microsoft Display Dock accessory. This Windows 10 feature allows people to use their phone like a PC by connecting it to a monitor and transforming it for larger-screen entertainment, or adding a keyboard and mouse to work like a PC with Windows 10 apps like Microsoft Office, while simultaneously taking calls or performing other tasks .
Both devices feature a QuadHD AMOLED display featuring 518 ppi for Lumia 950 XL and 564ppi for Lumia 950, which means photos, videos and even simple reading show up well, even in sunlight.
Microsoft’s Pure view technology is built into both Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL cameras, boasting a 20MP sensor and triple LED natural flash. Both Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL come with 5MP wide angle front camera.
Integrated with Cortana, these phones are perfect for those who want to stay organized and efficient. Cortana works across the entire Windows 10 device family. Set it up to give news updates, calendar reminders, messages, appointments or even flight information.
To make this all possible, both phones also have the latest-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processors to get these things done faster.
