Design and display

Everything we love about Microsoft

One of the best things about Microsoft is its versatility. And within the 950 XL we have the top of the range. It’s slim, strong, premium and a pleasure to use.

Quality Quad HD

Forget about Full HD, the world has moved on, and so has Microsoft. The 5.7-inch Quad HD display is a treat for the eyes, with a remarkable 518 pixels per inch.

Camera

The purest view

Lumia is back with the 20MP PureView camera, and it’s now better than ever with a triple LED natural flash alongside and 4K video-recording capabilities. Do more with your photographs, perfect for both amateurs and total pros.

Wide-angle selfies

Struggling to get everyone in the selfie frame, and wish you had longer arms? Worry no more, with the wide-angle 5MP front-facing camera.

Under the hood

More power

A titanic 3,340mAh battery keeps the Lumia 950 XL going, making sure it’ll be with you all day and night. There’s Fast Charging on board too, providing 50% charge from just half and hour plugged in the wall.

Under the hood

With that massive 5.7-inch Quad HD, you’ll need all the power you can get. Thankfully there’s a powerful octa-core processor behind the 950 XL, which will allow you to do just that, and will help deal with multitasking and using large apps.

USB Type-C

You will notice that the charging port for the Lumia 950 XL is a different shape. That’s because it works with the new USB Type-C connection, meaning it can charge faster, transfer data more efficiently, and that it’s ready for the future. It’s also symmetrical, so you can forget about annoyingly getting it upside down.

Work with Microsoft Continuum

Microsoft Continuum is a smart gadget that works as a middleman between the 950 XL and your computer or TV. By putting them all together, you can lift the Windows 10 experience from your mobile, and broadcast it onto a larger screen.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brummie from Great Windows 10 Very happy with mobile. Screen and camera quality is amazing. Has all the necessary apps that you would need. Turns in to PC when connected to screen due to continium feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clive from Fantastic Phone I have had this phone since it pretty much launched last year, and despite a few minor operating system issues early in life and me being clumsy and dropping onto concrete it has been a very good phone that's still going strong, even with the severely cracked screen, may not be inundated with apps like other operating systems but comes with everything I need in my life (OK maybe I'm missing Pokemon Go). Love the fact you can give it a 50% charge in half an hour and doesn't need charging every day like most smart phones, and the picture quality is so good that I have to reduce the picture size to upload photo's to eBay a lot of the time)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Another superb Windows phone I've been a fan of Windows phones since the first one (anyone remember the Orange SPV?!). Despite online article saying that Windows Phone is 'dying', I decided to invest in their 'flagship' device - and I'm really glad I did. I wasn't sure between the 950 and the 950XL, and the only reason I've marked the 950XL down to 4 stars for portability is that it is big! - I think I made the right choice, but if you're unsure then the slightly smaller 950 may be better for you. The phone is very fast - the 3Gb RAM and Octacore processor are amazing, and the screen is great quality (and size). Winodws 'Hello' (iris recognition) works well in most conditions (struggles in bright sunlight), and the Display Dock (using 'Continuum') is amazing. I now connect my phone to my TV and use it from a wireless keyboard on the sofa. I can surf the web and play videos / music through the TV. If Windows Phone is dying then it would be a shame - this is an amazing phone and I'll continue to promote Windows Phone as long as it exists. Highly recommended!
