My very first smartphone review! Microsofts latet flagship, the Lumia 950, sparked my curiosity. So, I requested if Microsoft had been keen to ship lend me one to review, which they did. And that is the outcome. All filmed with Sony a7s, and pure daylight. Any questions? Feel free to remark =)

It appears some folks have gotten a nasty first impression of this telephone, as a result of some bugs when it was model new(?). And there appear to a normal prejudice towards Lumia telephones (kinda like lots of people hate Apple’s iPhone). But the reality is that they are nice telephones, with prime notch {hardware} and by far the very best cameras – and in each value vary. At least that is my opinion. But, the shortage and/or underdeveloped apps is a deal breaker for lots of people. Still, lots of people do not use/want that many apps anyway. Is it excellent? Of course not, however which telephone is? At least I see no motive to hate it =)

At first look, it seems like a fairly customary smartphone. And in case you evaluate it even seems a bit uninteresting. But as quickly as you activate the display screen, you get the premuium really feel of a excessive-finish smartphone. The display screen is a staggering 2560×1440, and at 5,7 inches, it provides you a pixel density 565 – which ties with the S6. Though it is probably not as vibrant as iPhone or Samsung, it’s definitely seems lovely, and feels actually responsive. You may get it in an XL model, however for me, 5,2 is greater than enought.

It’s obtained an eight core processor, which makes it actually highly effective, and it’s capable of run a number of the most graphic demanding video games.
This makes it a probably actually good for leisure. Though I’m a bit dissapointed the one speaker is within the again, which makes the sound a bit underwhelming.
But all in all, it really works fairly good.

Of course I’ve to say the digicam, which has all the time been one of many strongest sides of the Nokia/Lumia telephones. And that is no exeption.

Here I’m evaluating it to the iPhone 6s, and the Samsung s6.
The 950 has a ton of higher picture high quality. It additionally has full manuall controll, and optical stabilization, which for me as a filmmaker and photographer is a large plus. One factor I don’t like although, is that if you wish to take a look at an image you’ve simply taken, you must look forward to a number of seconds whereas the picture is processed. But nonetheless, it’s a value I’m keen to pay for the really superb high quality.

The video high quality it’s a extra shut race. They all look shoot in attractive 4k extremely HD. But if I had to decide on, I’d give the medal to Lumia 950.

The lack of apps is the one factor that’s all the time delivered to the desk when discussing Windows mobiles. But truthfully, just about the entire apps I take advantage of essentially the most are right here, together with – Facebook, Youtube, Messenger, Instagram, Dropbox, public transportation, my financial institution and Netflix. Snapchat nonetheless, is sorely missed. But as WIndows telephones populairty will develop, it will absolutely be fastened.

In phrases of battery time, it’s fairly common, however with it USB-C, it fees superfast. You may even cost it wirelessly. It additionally has enter for micro-SD, which provides you the choice to get much more further storage.

Another actually cool perform is the face recognition. Now that is one thing I used to be actually sceptical at first, nevertheless it really works! It’s nonetheless in beta, however I’ve examined with many various folks, and in low mild, nevertheless it’s all the time quick and environment friendly. Personally, I feel this works even higher than Apples and Androids fingerprint. It even provides you a bit wink and howdy, which makes it really feel prefer it actually is aware of you.

I additionally need to point out that I applaud Microoft for NOT attempting to repeat iPhone or Android – however creating one thing really authentic. I didn’t care a lot for the earlier working techniques, however Windows 10 seems like actually elegant and person pleasant. And you will have a ton of choice to customise every little thing from your private home display screen to the colours of your show. After a few years with fairly stagnant iPhone and Android, this feels actually refreshing.

So – in conlusion – not solely is the Lumia 950 one the very best and strongest smartphones presently on the marked, nevertheless it’s additionally obtained numerous revolutionary and awe-inspiring methods up it’s sleeve. I feel it’s cool that Microsoft that has been an underdog for a few years is lastly gaining some notwworthy foothold. It could not excellent, nevertheless it’s definitely is a benchmark in the way forward for smartphones. A future I need to be part of.

I’m genuienly impressed with the Lumia 950, and extremely recomend it! .

  1. Years later, the Windows Phone is dead. But, the PC Continuum idea has been borrowed by Google on the Android devices for Chrome OS

  2. oh.. i got it today.. i'm so exited for it! I love lumia phones and that last model is best ever I had befor..

  3. People always moan about lack of apps for WP(and its usually people who havnt used the WP platform)… Personally after using smartphones for a few years now, most of the apps i use are already there with the exception of snapchat.

    I have used WP7, WP8, Android & IOS over the years & i find the apps pretty much for muchness, its the handsets that enhance a users experience. Unfortunately WP doesnt seem to carry many manufacturers these days & the lower end always feel a lot cheaper than the Android budget phones.

    Also people just buy into the Apple vs Samsung war like there are no other manufacturers out there…. Expand your mind & bring a bit of Lumia happiness into your lives…. Now anyone recommend where i can buy one of these 950s for a decent price in the UK as CPW are trying to punt it for £399/US$494
