Microsoft Lumia 950 May Not Has Such A Likeability Factor?

By  | 

Microsoft has been struggling to gain a step on the market when it comes to being as popular as Samsung and Apple. They revealed the Microsoft Lumia 950 but has the handset got what it needs for it to be able to compete?

The display on the Microsoft Lumia 950 is 5.2 inches, while the resolution comes in at 1440 x 2560. The handset offers up 32GB storage and it runs on the Snapdragon 808 processor. It has support for SD card and it offers up 3GB of RAM.

While there are lots to like about the Microsoft Lumia 950 there are some things that are not so good. One of these is that it runs on Windows 10. This means that it doesn’t offer as many apps as Android and iOS does.

But would you go ahead and willingly swap your Samsung Galaxy S7 or iPhone for the Microsoft Lumia 950?

    I bought a lumia 950 XL (unlocked) from Microsoft. It has everything I needed (calendar, office apps, a killer camera) a docking station, memory card support. Who needs another angry bird or candy crush game anyway? I tested it for several days. I loved it, as long as there was a WiFi connection. Just one problem: The geniuses who put it out specifically eliminated the ability to connect even the “unlocked” version to my Sprint network (and, as near as I can tell, any other normal CDMA-based network). I was never able to even register it with Sprint, in spite of lots of help from some very bright Sprint techs, never mind make an actual cell phone call with it. Game over. I returned it. It’s no wonder Microsoft seems to be dropping back out of the cell phone business (again). If they had showed the same marketing talent with computer operating systems that they showed with this otherwise fantastic phone, we would all still be running CP/M. So I am back to my new Samsung, which some idiot decided did NOT need a docking station. (That too may soon be returned in disgust.)

    I have swapped my old phone, for a lumia 950, I love it! I don’t mind the lack of apps, as I never used that many anyway, and the only one I used to use and can’t get now is the Starbucks app, so it saves me money. I love my windows phone. Gives great cross over with my surface and my email accounts.
