Microsoft Lumia 950 is “NOT boring”!
Microsoft? Lumia? What’s this, the ghost of phones past?
Ouch! Microsoft has been quiet on the phone front of late, but it’s been biding its time, waiting for the opportune moment to pounce. The Lumia 950 is its new flagship smartphone, and with Windows 10 on board it means business.
Business, you say? Sounds dull.
The Lumia 950 has strong business potential, that’s for sure, but it’s not all suit and tie. The 5.2-inch Quad HD display is perfect for movies and gaming on the go, and the heap of power Microsoft has squashed inside means you can throw pretty much anything at it.
Can it take a good picture?
You betcha. Round the back, the 20MP camera promises big things, with 4K video recording, a triple RGB flash and fifth- generation optical image stabilization. That means red-eye will be a thing of the past, while your shots will be less blurred and low-light performance will be enhanced. There’s even a dedicated physical shutter key on the side. You know, like you get on a real camera.
Does it have a party piece?
How do you unlock your current phone?
A PIN? A pattern? Boring! The Lumia 950 uses infrared camera tech to scan your face, so you can unlock it with a look.
Oh my gawd! I want to do that!
Course you do, and you’re in luck because the Microsoft Lumia 950 – along with a 5.7-inch version, the 950XL – will be hitting stores any day now, with approx. $685 without taxes.
