Microsoft debuted its Windows 10 Mobile OS with the launch of two Lumia devices in India late last month. The company is going with a top-down approach by first introducing the best it has to offer with the Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM and Lumia 950 Dual SIM and follow that up with more affordable variants across different price segments.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM Summary

The Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM by Microsoft is the company’s platform for showcasing Windows 10 Mobile in all its glory. The phone looks a bit bland and the plastic body isn’t very flagship-like, but if you move past these, there’s an excellent display onboard along with a very good camera and strong battery life. Windows Hello and Continuum are two really cool features which must be experienced. The phone also features the newer USB Type-C connector so you automatically get faster data transfer speeds and super-fast charging. Windows 10 Mobile might be a bit rough around the edges but if Microsoft can get developers onboard quickly, it could have a bright future. The Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM has a steep launch price which is currently its biggest hindrance.

    Sakav Jagam (Jun 25, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    Dont buy Microsoft handsets, i brought this lumia 950 xl ds for whooping 57k, and now as it is water damaged the microsoft service centers are not providing any service they are telling we cant fix your handset, Apple and Samsung can fix any damn handset even if it is completely water damaged and microsoft cant even service my handset even when i am ready to pay the repair cost.
