The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL gets its appeal from its big user replaceable battery and wireless charging, premium Snapdragon 810 processor backed up by expandable memory, 5.7 inch cutting edge HD display and a 20 MP camera. The traditional fingerprint scanner is replaced by ‘Hello’, the inbuilt iris recognition component.
It shares the same features of Continuum as its brother Microsoft Lumia 950, which enables you to turn your television or monitor to a resemblance of Window 10. It is very slick looking with an organized home screen design that can be customized to view a lot of information without looking messy.
It has some shortcomings like sluggish browsing and limited app compatibility. The Windows Store is broken and the apps run into several errors on update. The speakers produce static noise too often and the device occasionally exhausts its battery in a few hours instead of the expected day plus.
No matter how smooth a transition the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL makes, it is not compelling enough to shift from Android and iOS.
