Product Description

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL

Earlier this year, Microsoft introduced the Lumia 950 XL. It's the latest in Lumia series. Priced at $600, it's on the high end of cell phone market. But what it offers is amazing. Below you will find all the great things in  Microsoft's Lumia 950 XL.

Windows Continuum

The Lumia 950 Xl comes with Windows Continuum. Windows Continuum is the bridge between the Windows 10 and whatever apps or programs you have on your phone. With it the world really opens up. Through it you can do so much. According to Microsoft Vice President Joe Belfiore, the goal with Continuum is to have the phone can be your computer. In many ways, this is true. There are more searches on cell phones today than on personal computers. With this in mind, Windows created Continuum, an effective phone and PC at the same time. The phone can be connected to a monitor and function as a PC. The operating system of the Lumia 950 is Windows 10, the latest operating system.

Windows 10 is the advanced OS on the market from Microsoft. It can bring all your devices under one roof. The phone, notebook, and desktops can all be synced and exchange information. You can prepare a report using excel data, create PowerPoint presentations, and more on your PC and transfer them to your phone for on the go presentations. Additional software or hardware may be required. For example, if you want to use remote control to present a  slideshow, you would need additional hardware. Windows 10 can also connect to Xbox One for gaming, Surface Hub for video conferencing, and HoloLens, one of Microsoft's latest ventures that features Smartglasses. Windows 10 has so many great features, you really need to take the time out to really explore them. There are great games like Candy Crush, Windows Maps, and Cortana. Cortana supports voice input as well as text and is your guide to assist you in finding applications and programs.

Windows Hello

Signing into Windows is now done with Windows Hello.  There are several ways users can login including text, finger and eye recognition. Technology developed with the Microsoft Kinect depth camera  is the basis of this technology. Windows Hello can scan and check if you are the computer's registered user. The goal of this technology was to eliminate the password user syndrome where users forget passwords and often leak out to the internet. If a computer system allows this recognition, users could login to say Yahoo or dating service with a scan instead of a password. Microsoft Passport is the prototype of this feature that has yet to be fully imployed by corporations but it certainly sounds nice. User information couldn't be easily accessed and leaked online. The FIDO, Fast Identity Online Alliance is the organization hoping to transition from traditional passwords and into a stronger form of user identification.

Quad HD

The Lumia comes equipped with a Quad HD screen. What is Quad HD? Other than the sharpest screen resolution available, Quad HD represents pixel ratio of 2560 X 1440. This is four times the standard HD resolution. This means your pictures and videos are the sharpest they could ever be and connecting your phone to a monitor will deliver the best graphics available right now.

Pictures and Videos

The Lumia 950 is also an adequate camcorder with 20.0 MP. An MP is a megapixel and the higher the number, the better the resolution especially if you want to increase the size of a picture later. The Lumia has more than enough power to adequately handle most picture and video tasks a camcorder do and it's easier to carry as well. With the Lumia 950, you can zoom and use auto focus as well.

Qualcomm Snapdragon

The Lumia features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 CPU. This is the standard of excellence in mobile cell phones. These semiconductors are embedded and help run graphics processing, GPS, camera and wifi systems. Many of today's phone use Snapdragon including Microsoft and Google Android Mobile. However, Snapdragon has collaborated with Microsoft for their semiconductors.

Battery

The Lumia 950 features a replaceable battery. The power is 3000 mAH. The battery can also be charged wirelessly. There are 67 hours of music and 6 hours of video with a charged battery. Battery use varies according to activities. Videos take up of battery energy. So, it's an individual assessment of how long a battery and its use will be.
