We’ve heard countless of criticisms regarding the Microsoft Lumia 950, despite all the features it has to boast about and even being dubbed as the first flagship-level Lumia smartphone since its predecessor, but then again, it’s still a phone worthy to be compared with stronger rivals like the iPhone 6S and Samsung Galaxy S6.
Design-wise, it wouldn’t be as attractive as the iPhone 6S and Galaxy S6, though, design taste is always a matter of opinion. The Lumia 950’s metal frame and matte polycarbonate back with dimensions are actually not too different as compared with its rivals, though it’s 0.32-inch is slightly thicker than that of the 0.28-inch and 0.27-inch of both the iPhone 6S and Galaxy S6 respectively.
There’s no denying that the Lumia 950 certainly has the best display on a Microsoft device, period. And surprisingly, the resolution is significantly better than the 1334 x 750 Retina display of the iPhone 6S (which actually is equipped with the least pixel-dense of all three devices, at only 326ppi).
Speaking of hardware, the Lumia 950 should actually be proud that it didn’t fall into a midrange or budget category. It’s good to know that the device has hardware that actually puts it on par with other rivals such as the LG G4, Moto X Pure Edition, and Nexus 5X (which apparently, all of them have a Snapdragon 808 processor). But if there’s a clear winner in this category, it’ll be the Galaxy S6 with its Exynos 7420; even the iPhone 6S’ dual-core A9 processor couldn’t knock it down.
Sure, the Lumia 950 seems to have a lot of perks, but like we said, it’s all a matter of opinion. Just do note that there’s still quite a number of criticisms have been cast upon the underrated Lumia 950. Tell us now, which is your favourite among the three?
