Microsoft Lumia 950 May Note Have The Fans You Though It Has

By  | 

Microsoft has been trying to get people to go with the Microsoft Lumia 950 instead of the iOS and Android devices, but have they had any luck? Does the device have what it needs to make people turn their backs on the likes of Apple and Samsung?

The display of the Microsoft Lumia 950 is 5.2 inches and it offers up a resolution of 1440 x 2560. It runs on Snapdragon 808 and comes with 32GB of storage and it supports SD card along with having 3GB of RAM.

There is a lot to like about the Microsoft Lumia 950, however the handset isn’t without its downsides too. The biggest of these is that the OS is Windows and this means that it lacks in apps in comparison to the Android and iOS handsets.

But would you swap your iOS or Android and go with the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Windows, let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    I think the major failure of Window mobile is mainly on its Sales/Marketing. Many mobile users did not aware on the strength in Windows phone.
    I have been an Android users several years ago before switching to Windows Mobile and switching back to Android is NO. I have seen many who has commented negative on Windows Mobile has never even used a Windows Phone before OR they have not involve in IT before.

    I recently bought the latest iPhone 6s Plus after my Lumia 1520 was no longer serviceable due to lack of spare parts as apparently Microsoft is no longer maintaining the range or upgrading it. This is a such a great shame as the user friendliness of the Windows mobile platform is such a joy and ease and pleasure to use. Switching between opened tabs, pages, apps, and doing search without losing any of your typed data, notes, replies is par excellence. This is made possible with the three button function at the button as opposed to the single home button on iOS.
    Changing phone settings is so simple and straightforward, even setting or changing the alarm is a pleasure.
    Saving a pic in an article, image or taking a screenshot is dead simple, not to mention the use of swyping instead of finger typing for keyboard work.
    When my current phone is no longer serviceable or when I have enough of the current iOS, I will switch back to Windows when Microsoft announces its definitive future plans for its mobile phones. They future lies in mobile devices and I hope Microsoft realises this.

    Enough with the “App gap” argument. I have yet to find an app that I used on my Android (and previously iPhone) that I cannot find either the same app, or a suitable alternative. Yes, there are a few major apps that are unavailable (cough snapchat cough), but apparently their CEO was butthurt by Microsoft or something, and refuses to build an App on the platform.
