Is Microsoft Lumia 950 The Best Windows 10 Phone Ever?

Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft has already said that their tech-house is going to focus more on mobile phones after the launch of Windows 10. This might have led to the good crafting of the new Lumia 950 with flagship (Windows phone) specifications. This new power-packed phone is available in the market for $600 USD (off-contract price) with AT&T carrier.

Personally, the last Windows phone that grabbed my attention was Lumia 1020 with an amazing camera and specifications. Later, Lumia 1320 and 1520 were released, but with very larger screens. 5 inch phones are my cup of tea and so I never chose to taste a sip of them since then.

Microsoft, after releasing the their operating system of the era, has revealed its thoughts on growing mobile phone technologies and the need that they had realized in the years of evolution that they were missed to take part.

We will go through the full technical specifications in another review. For now, let’s see what the Lumia 950 device has got and if this is the best Windows 10 phone ever made.

The Premium design

The Lumia 950 looks fabulous. Slim, sleek and silver touched body with the matte finish back cover and the concentric camera gives the device a premium look while in hand.

Latest operating system

Lumia 950 comes up with the latest and the last operating system, Windows 10 from Microsoft corporation. If you are using Windows 10 on your PC and wanted perfect sync with your smartphone, Lumia 950 fits well with no air fitting gap in between.

Windows 10 is already working great on supported devices including both the laptops and Lumia phones if we could be little more careful while installing it (on PCs I mean).

The hardware configuration

The 1080p displays are yesterday’s now. Lumia 950 has 2K Quad AMOLED HD display spread over the 5.2-inch screen with 564 pixels per inch. Lumias tend to give hardware configurations a new definition with very unique dimensions. The 2K display is one of such definitions it seems, with ClearBlack display and 24-bit/16M color support.

The super-sensitive touch and 2K display would bring digital information to live in front of our eyes. Don’t you imagine how that experiences?

The smarty is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor which won’t slow down a beat while using with the good support of 3 GB RAM.

It comes with 32 GB internal storage which can be expanded up to 200 GB through microSD card. There again it creates new definition with the number ‘200’ which won’t be seen on any other smartphones actually.

Lumias has another great hardware, the camera(s). The Windows phones always loved the cameras as its users. With 20MP powerful camera along with triple-LED flash, the Microsoft Lumia 950 takes the photography to another level.

The new camera feature called, Rich Capture adjusts the color saturation levels of the bright and dark areas in the taken picture and lets the user remove or add the flash in the unwanted and wanted areas respectively. With this feature, we no need to worry about the shots taken at a random moment. Thanks to Microsoft for believing in moments that won’t come again once lost.

The camera can also record sharpest 4K video with seamless autofocusing system and optical image stabilization.

This Windows 10 phone comes with 3000mAh battery that could stand the phone by two complete days on moderate usage.

Special Features

Type-C Port – The new flagship port connectivity feature, Type-C port comes to Microsoft’s house. The Lumia 950 has this type-C port with fast charging technology enabled.

Rich Capture – The new photo capturing technology is a revolutionary adaption to Lumia 950. It helps to capture the moments right on time without worrying about the lightening conditions and focus.

Windows Hello Beta –  Wakes up the screen by simply looking at the screen directly. The infrared camera on the front automatically authenticates your face while looking into the screen directly and unlocks the phone for full accessing.

Microsoft Display Dock – Windows 10 on Microsoft Lumia 950 allows the user to use the phone as an external monitor by docking the phone to the Microsoft Display Dock and use it with external mouse and keyboard attached to it like a PC. With this feature enabled, you won’t feel like missing your PC/laptop at the times of emergency needs.

Is Microsoft Lumia 950 the best phone?

Don’t you still think it is? I liked the device and can’t wait to get my hands on it. The operating system makes the phone truly a flagship killer in not only Windows but also in all smartphones category.

It is available in stores from 20th November 2015 for the best price of $600 USD i.e., ₹40,000 in India. If you are planning to buy a premium Windows phone, that could be Lumia 950.
