Microsoft Lumia 950


The Lumia 950 is Microsoft's first high-end phone to be launched running Windows 10 Mobile. Unfortunately, it's also one of the most frustrating and disappointing devices I've used this year.

Superb camera ; Windows Hello is cool ; Sharp screen

Dull, boring design ; Expensive for what's on offer ; Poor app offerings

Microsoft Lumia 950 review: all the joy of Windows 10 Mobile, for better or worse


The 950 is the first elite Lumia for ages, but can it really compete?

Great screen ; Strong camera ; Comfortable in one hand

Poor speakers ; Buggy OS ; Uninspired design

Microsoft Lumia 950 review: The dawn of Windows 10 Mobile


Windows Phone 7 launched with a flourish. A range of devices, all singing from the same song sheet, from many of the big manufacturers, like LG, HTC, Samsung. It was a uniform alliance of handsets marking the start of something new. Until it all fell...

Cameras, some nice Window 10 features, removable battery, decent display

Windows 10 littered with inconsistencies, sometimes unstable, iris scanner dazzling, app space not competitive against Android and iOS, bland design

The Microsoft Lumia 950 perhaps isn't the flagship handset that many were expecting. Sitting in that convenient size at 5.2-inches, it may be a more natural choice over the 950 XL's 5.7-inch size. There's a good display on this phone, paired with...

Microsoft Lumia 950 review


Windows 10 struggles to get in gear

Class-leading photo quality ; Great screen ; Iris scanner is interesting, if not perfect

Windows 10 needs work ; Apps selection still an issue ; Disappointing build and design ; Poor battery life

Photo and screen quality are terrific, but Windows 10 feels clunky and Microsoft doesn’t make up for that with jaw-dropping hardware either

Microsoft Lumia 950 review


Ready to beta test Windows 10 Mobile?

Windows 10 Mobile is slick ; Iris-scanning lockscreen ; Continuum is its best trick

App situation is dire ; Microsoft Maps is 'Apple Maps bad' ; Call quality is subpar

The Lumia 950 proves that there's a lot going for Windows 10 Mobile, though also a lot of work to be done. Its best trick is that it blows up to desktop-like proportions with Continuum, but it sorely needs apps. Dedicated Microsoft fans and willing...

Windows 10 for phones is here but should you buy the new Lumia 950. Find out in our full review.

Windows 10 has arrived on smartphones and we're not exactly blown away. Loyal Windows and Windows Phone users will appreciate features like Universal Apps and while Continuum appears to be a real wow features, it requires a lot of extra equipment. The...

Microsoft Lumia 950 Review: In Depth


Microsoft Lumia 950 Review: Windows Phone 10 has arrived in the form of two new handsets, the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL. With...

Easy to use ; Excellent camera ; Continuum

Windows 10 is a bit buggy ; Feels cheap

There’s a lot to like about the Microsoft Lumia 950. It’s well built, offers a lot of freedom in the form of expandable storage and a removable battery and the operating system is familiar yet more capable..

Microsoft Lumia 950 review: Microsoft's first Windows 10 phone fails to wow


A bland plastic design and minor updates to Windows keeps this Lumia from reaching its full potential. That and a talked-up breakout feature that ultimately falls flat.

Microsoft's Lumia 950 takes good pictures, has a crystal clear screen and a removable battery. The Cortana voice assistant and offline maps remain perks.

Windows phones still have a huge app deficit compared to iPhone and Android. The 950's standout Continuum feature is buggy and cumbersome, and requires separate hardware to use. The phone's ho-hum design feels dated.

The Lumia 950 is a mostly average smartphone, giving iPhone and Android users no reason to switch, and offering little appeal outside Windows phone diehards.

Microsoft Lumia 950 review - Windows 10 comes to mobiles


The Lumia 950 has a superb camera and Windows 10 Continuum is a revelation, but it's crippled by sluggish performance and a mediocre battery

Weighing 150g and measuring 8.2mm thick, the Lumia 950 is reasonably chunky for its size, but its smooth plastic rear does sit well in your hand. It's a shame Microsoft isn't releasing it in multiple funky colours like previous Lumia phones, as this...

Microsoft Lumia 950 review: How good is Microsoft's first Windows 10 phone?


Showcases Windows 10 Mobile rather well. The Microsoft Lumia 950 is a highly capable smartphone

The Microsoft Lumia 950 is a tricky phone to pigeonhole. Because it’s a Windows smartphone and not Android or iOS based, it will appeal in different ways to different people, so I’m going to give it two verdicts here.
