6 reasons to buy the Microsoft Lumia 950/950 XL

If you’re due an upgrade soon, have you thought about going for a Windows Phone?

The Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL are the best Windows Phones around. They both run on Windows 10, so they’re packed with features you won’t get anywhere else…

Welcome to your Office

The Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL come pre-loaded with your favourite Office apps: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and OneNote – and they’ve all been designed especially to work on mobile devices.

Plus, you can easily sync your mobile Office apps with your Office suite on other devices. So you’ll be able to start a new document on your phone, edit it on your tablet, and finish it on your PC.

A better Outlook

With Windows 10 on your Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL, you’ll get the same full version of Outlook that’s on your PC (and it’ll be synced to it, of course). You’ll be able to quickly write and edit emails, delete unwanted messages with a simple swipe and create recurring calendar invites. And with the mobile Outlook Calendar app, you’ll be able to view your week at a glance by simply rotating your phone 90-degrees.

Turn your phone into a PC

The Microsoft Display Dock is an amazing piece of kit that can turn your Lumia 950 or 950 XL into a PC. Use it to connect your phone to a computer monitor or TV screen and you’re good to go.You can also connect a keyboard and mouse for a full-on home computer experience – all without the cost of buying a PC.

The thing that impressed us most about using Display Dock is that Office apps scale up to be optimised on your larger screen. See for yourself here:

Universal Windows Apps

Universal Windows Apps is another great feature that you’ll appreciate on the Lumia 950 or Lumia 950XL. It means that your apps will always be scaled up or down to suit the size of your phone screen.

A close look at security

The Lumia 950 and 950 XL both come with iris recognition as a contactless security feature. This type of cutting-edge security still hasn’t found its way onto many other smartphones, and it’s a great alternative to using a fingerprint scanner or PIN code to unlock your phone.

Quality cameras

The Lumia 950 and 950 XL both have the same superb 20MP camera, with a unique triple LED flash to light up your night shots more naturally. Check out how our reviewer rated the camera when they spent a week living with the Lumia 950 XL.

You can buy the Microsoft Lumia 950 or Lumia 950XL from Carphone Warehouse today.
