There could only be one reason for you to buy Microsoft’s high-end smartphone, the Lumia 950 (and 950 XL), and it’s not because of it being powered by Windows 10 or the clean design, but rather the camera. It’s going to be the best camera you’ve used in a while, but that’s just that. We’ve got you covered for all the nastiest (if you’re being unkind) or unappealing (if you’re being generous) features it’s packed with.
This is arguably the most talked-about pitfall of all: the Lumia 950 is heavily lacking in apps. You had probably expected a more matured Windows 10, but you should be disappointed instead, because even the third-party app selection will only be improved starting next year. It’s a device costing around $600 (or more), so it’s quite a lot to ask of punters for what is basically an ongoing beta programme (even Instagram is still on beta).
Let’s not forget the fact that there have been quite a number of high-profile content providers who have actually given up on Windows Phone altogether. It’s probably just not worth the fight after all. Just do us a favour: remember to think twice before purchasing the Lumia 950 because chances are, you might not like it.
