The Microsoft Lumia 950 is a handset that Microsoft hopes will be able to compete with the iPhone S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6. But does it have what it needs?
Up to now Microsoft haven’t been able to offer anything that has come close to the Apple and Samsung devices but maybe the Microsoft Lumia 950 is able to change all of this?
The Microsoft Lumia 950 has a display of 5.2 inches and the resolution is 2560 x 1440. The display on the Samsung Galaxy S6 is the same but the display is actually smaller as it is 5.1 inches. The display of the iPhone 6S comes in as the smallest of the three at 4.7 inches and resolution of 1334 x 750. This means that the winner is the Microsoft Lumia 950.
The biggest battery is on the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the iPhone 6S has a battery that is smaller than the previous version at 1715mAh. This means that for the battery the Microsoft Lumia 950 comes out ahead.
You can connect the Microsoft Lumia 950 to the Microsoft Display Dock so that owners can use it in the same way as they can a desktop computer. Neither the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the iPhone 6S have this option.
The Microsoft Lumia 950 comes in 32GB and it takes SD card. The Samsung Galaxy S6 also has 32GB but it doesn’t support SD card and neither does the iPhone 6S which comes with 16GB. The Microsoft Lumia 950 is the winner once again.
For the most megapixels it is the Microsoft Lumia 950 and it takes great photos in low light. The iPhone 6S offers the 12MP camera, while the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with a 16MP camera and all of them support a 5MP front camera.
You will have to pay $549 for the Microsoft Lumia 950 and this is $100 savings in comparison to the iPhone 6S. The Samsung Galaxy S6 price is $579.99 for the 32GB version. This means that the Microsoft Lumia 950 comes out on top.
As you can see the Microsoft Lumia 950 has taken a lot of the categories but does it have what it takes to beat the Apple iPhone 6S and the Samsung Galaxy S6?
