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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pep from amazing phone Great phone. Does everything I need and loads more. It's fast and smooth. Connect easily to all my other windows 10 devices. Lightweight and fits in my pocket. Just needs a few more apps. Love my 950

Rated 2 out of 5 by mysilentundoing from Disappointing This wasn't my first windows phone, but it will probably be my last. I had a Nokia Lumia 1020 before and was happy with it, but I was due an upgrade so decided to stick with the brand and it's a shame that I did. There were some features I really appreciated on my 1020 which were not transferred over, such as double tap to wake up, being able to use the screen while wearing gloves, and the synchronisation between the calendar and emails and texts. This particular discrepancy is quite irritating, what used to be seamless and intuitive is now non existent. The event used to appear underlined and you'd tap and select which calendar you wanted to add it to - simple. Now there is no such option and it's a massive disappointment, as this used to help me keep myself organised and now it's a matter of manually entering appointments, double checking the details correspond with the email/text, and adding to the calendar. I don't know why this was removed, seeing as Cortana is marketed as an all round personal assistant. Other problems with this phone include that it resets and freezes on average about once a day. I'm lucky if it's just while I'm browsing spotify, unlucky if I'm trying to nagivate somewhere. I don't have an issue with the apps as I have the ones that I need. There isn't any feature that stands out as making up for the above shortcomings that you wouldn't find in any other phone. Unfortunately I think it's too late for me to swap to something else, so I'll have to stick with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Putty from Unbeatable Price/Performance Windows phones? OK there aren't as many apps as iPhone or Android, so if that is what you are after these aren't for you. If you want a smart phone that integrates seamlessly with your PC, works really well with media, email, messaging, office, and is a good phone I would highly recommend the Lumia 950. I also love the fact that I can add up to 200Gb of additional storage in a micro SD, and I can replace the battery myself. The only app I am disappointed with? BBC iPlayer doesn't support downloads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dorriee from Excellent phone First time I change android system for Wp. And I just love it. The system is good and never frozen and the camera is amazing. Very lovely phone, I think I never change back for android. Only one things if the phone on the charger and you use the phone body its start be hot. Also I use very often the office for my school study's and just work perfect.
