Microsoft Lumia 950 Review: A Terrible Windows 10 Phone

By  | 

One of Microsoft’s sole wishes in its comeback is to have the people who are using iOS and Android to make the change to Windows 10. But are the people actually listening? One of their latest smartphones is the Microsoft Lumia 950, and how much do you think that the company has succeeded in persuading its fans (and non-fans)?

For those unfamiliar, the Microsoft Lumia 950 sports a 5.2-inch display and a resolution of 1440 x 2560 with 564ppi. What powers up the insides of the phone is the Snapdragon 808 processor, and it also has 32GB of storage room (that could be expandable to 200GB), and there is 3GB of RAM. Its AMOLED display serves as a pretty energy-efficient element too; when the screen displays blacks, it actually goes off too.

Up until now, you may think it’s all the good we’ve been talking about, but like all phones, this comes with a downside too. The major turn-off of the phone seems to be its lack of apps that are offered, despite of having an overall software that’s good on its own. So, while it probably wouldn’t gain marks for originality, you still shouldn’t be considering this phone (there are really lots of better and cheaper ones on other platforms).

The latest addition to our team, while Anna has a long way to go to catch up with the number of stories the rest of the team has broken, Anna has some ‘well connected’ sources in the tech industry. Breaking rumors like bad eggs, it is difficult to ignore Anna’s headlines… we dare you to try!

    I haven’t used this device but I am WP user and the lack of apps is not much of a turn off for me. When I have a device i want it to be efficient I can do pretty much all I want from my Nokia Icon, I’d assume the same is true for the 950 and the Windows 10 platform looks promising. Of course , if it was a bit cheaper it would be great, but seems kind of a standard price for flagship devices.
