Microsoft Lumia 950 May Not Be That Likeable

By  | 

Microsoft has had a lot to do in getting people to make the move away from iOS and Android handsets and move to the Microsoft Lumia 950. So does the device have what is needed to make people move from their devices?

The display of the Microsoft Lumia 950 offers a display of 5.2 inches and it comes with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. The device has 32GB of storage and runs on the Snapdragon 808 processor. It comes with support for SD and 3GB of RAM.

There is a lot of good about the Microsoft Lumia 950 but then it is a Windows device and this is the downside. This is due to the fact that Windows 10 doesn’t offer the same apps as Android and iOS handsets.

So the big question is, would you give up your Android or iOS device to go with the Microsoft Lumia 950?

    So likeability is based on whether my smartphone runs an Apple or Android application? Sorry, not a major criteria for my smartphone preferences. If I had wanted an Apple or Android device overloaded with all their dime-a-dozen applications that’s what I would have bought. What I wanted was my desktop computer in a handheld form factor that utilizes mobile telecommunications seamlessly and that’s what I get in my Microsoft 950XL. If I want an Android app I’ve got a very good emulator that runs the ones I might want, or not, in Windows 10.

    If it makes my mobile device more desktop compatible (note to Microsoft: and includes drivers (or desktop pairing) that gives mobile access to desktop compatible wifi networked devices.

    Bought this device and what a mistake that was! it feels cheap as it’s a plastic build. Windows 10 is buggy, so much so I nearly binned the phone. The Active Directory authentication left the phone un-usable so i had to hard reset the phone. I’ve been a big supporter of the Windows phone for a long time. even moved my companies 125 mobile users to all windows based phones. however after this experience I’ve already started moving people to iPhone’s and Samsung phones
