Microsoft Lumia 950 XL: Could It Take Over From PC?

By  | 

The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL stands out as a superb handset as it can do just about anything that you could do with a PC. But is the device able to take the place of a PC?

The handset comes with a display that is big and so it is great for people who want to take notes and use Continuum. The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL has the option for people to connect the handset a larger display and it will blow up the desktop style menu.

The Snapdragon 910 processor is in the Microsoft Lumia 950 and it comes with 3GB or RAM, giving it plenty of power to do anything that you might need to do on a device. However, there is a downside and this is the lack of apps but that is down to Windows and not the handset.

Those who have purchased the Microsoft Lumia XL have said that the apps are good enough, but what do you think?

Can the Microsoft Lumia XL take over from the desktop PC?

    If Office, email and web browsing is mostly all you do, than this beautiful phone can be your only device.

    I bought the previous generation W phone and believe it is a big improvement on android. Their seems to be a small minority who approve. With a little more power it could be a wonderful ting.

    Having used Continuum on the 950XL for a conference call and taking notes and sending email from the desktop on a hotel TV was a great experience! I used a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard and a Microsoft Sculpt mobile Bluetooth mouse. App switching was intuitive and responsiveness was great. All connectivity was via LTE on T-Mobile in Bellevue Washington.
