Microsoft Lumia 950 Review: Is It An Awful Windows 10 Handset?

By  | 

One of the biggest wishes of Microsoft is to have Android and iOS users make the change and go to Windows 10 handsets. But are people really going to do this? One of the handsets is Microsoft Lumia 950, but does the handset have what it needs to persuade people?

The Microsoft Lumia 950 offers up a display of 5.2 inches with 564ppi and resolution of 1440 x 2560. It runs on the Snapdragon 808 processor, offers up 32GB of storage which can be expanded, 3GB of RAM and an AMOLED display.

While the Microsoft Lumia 950 has plenty to like, there are downsides too. One of the biggest let downs to the device is the apps. It isn’t very original and there are cheaper and better devices on the market, but what do you think?

    I think that if you are looking for a phone to download apps, then it isn’t for you. But if you are looking for a phone that has an excellent camera, and that integrates with your computing experience, this is an excellent choice. Features like having Cortana let you know you missed a call when you are working on the computer and the syncing of internet favorites between your phone, surface and desktop computers is great. Also, the edge browser reading modes for articles with the touch of a button simplify my day. Add this to the ability to wirelessly connect my phone to a projector and run my Power Point presentations from a small handheld device that allows me to zoom in on areas of slides at will and do on screen mark-ups and you have a productive device that I love using.

    I have a Lumia 950. I love the phone and the way it interfaces with my desktop and laptop. I can leave my phone in another room and if I get a text or phone call it displays on my computer whom is calling and gives me the option to respond with a text. OneDrive keeps all my data and pics accessible to each device and has served well when I purchase a new PC. Just login with my Microsoft account and I am ready to go.

    Also, in most cases I don’t need the apps because I can access most sites via EDGE. The site sees I am using a phone and displays as such.

    It charges quickly and the camera is awesome. Take a picture and it can be opened on any of my computers almost immediately without connecting the phone. I can also connect it to a monitor.
