Design and display

Slim and strong

The Lumia brand is known for its outstanding build quality, a reputation the Lumia 950 maintains. It’s elegantly thin, making it feel really good in the hand, but its aluminium chassis ensures it feels strong. It really has been beautifully engineered.

See more detail

Everything you do on the Lumia 950 will leap off the screen. The Quad HD display shows ultra-fine detail and lifelike colours to give a natural experience. And at 5.2-inches, it’s big enough for you to really enjoy movies and games.


A unique rear camera

Whatever you’re shooting, the Lumia 950’s 20MP PureView camera will make your photos look great. If you’re on a night out, for example, it has a unique triple-LED flash that gives a more natural light.

Get more into your selfies

If you like to take selfies with groups of friends or impressive landscapes, the 5MP front camera on the Lumia 950 is perfect. It has a wide angle lens that lets you fit more into the frame. And because the shots are high res, they’ll look great when you share them.

Under the hood

The speed to get things done

To make sure your Lumia 950 runs smoothly no matter what you’re doing, Microsoft has squeezed in a super-powerful and efficient processor. It can handle all the latest and greatest games as well as intense multitasking so you can do more of what you love.

Keep going all day

The Lumia 950 also has a big battery, so it packs enough power to keep going all day. Even if your work day turns into a night out, you’ll have enough juice to check the train times home.

Spend less time plugged in

When you do need to recharge, you won’t have to spend long plugged into the wall. The Lumia 950 has fast charging built in, which lets you get a 50% charge in just half an hour.

Other features

Windows 10

With the Windows 10 operating system, you get the same experience as you would on your PC or laptop, making it easier to get things done on the move.

USB Type-C

USB Type-C is a new kind of charging port. It’s less fiddly to plug in to, charges faster and even carries more data when syncing with your computer.

Microsoft Continuum

The Lumia 950 works with Microsoft Continuum, the new device that lets you put your phone on the big screen and get the full PC experience.

Microsoft Lumia 950 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Blods from Amazing phone - Love it A real flagship device, the 950 is an amazing piece of technology. USB-C charging in 30 minutes, removable battery, pick up a stiched leather body from Mozo to replace the phones normal body, add 256 gb of SSD storage, two SIMs and you have a monster of a phone. Add a dock, or a usb-c to HDMI, or a Samsung tv or monitor, Bluetooth mouse and keyboard and your phone via Continuum also turns into a desktop. The camera is also best in class producing stung hdr shots and he movies Love love this phone

Rated 5 out of 5 by EddieR from A bargain high-end Smart Phone This phone was an absolute bargain at £310 and it is really very good. As my Lumia 930 (which it replaced) was already an excellent phone, I didn't think it would be much of an improvement, so have been surprised at exactly how good the Lumia 950 is. It is a thin, light, phone and very capable. Iris-recognition, the Glance Screen and continuum are all very welcome features, and the cameras (front & rear) are very good. Sure it looks quite ordinary, being made of plastic, but that doesn't bother me and (like most phones) it is the protective case you put on it that really determines the look. The Lumia 950 is about as big as I wanted to go - I tested the Lumia 950XL but was just a bit too big to fit comfortably in the front pocket of my work shirt and the pocket of my jeans. The Windows 10 operating system now works very well, and there are plenty of general Apps for what I need. It also interfaces very well with PCs (data transfer, acting as a USB Drive, etc). If you are after a capable high-end phone rather than a glitzy piece of metallic jewellery then this phone really is a bargain.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MercyBlue from Calendar Lumia 950 On advice from Grandson bought the Lumiar 950 two weeks ago. Its Calender will have to have things put in manually as it will not accept syncing from my tablet. That is very unhelpful. Also you cannot pay a bill on line as there is no delete button if you mistype a number such as a bank account have to redial and start again. Very disappointed.
