Thanks for your patience while we worked with Microsoft to bring the Lumia 950 and 950XL to our stores. They are both 4GX compatible in 4GX areas and packed with some really cool features you’ll love, check them out:
Lugging your laptop to and from the office can be a chore. Now you can Leave your laptop at work and make the most of universal apps on your new Windows 10 smartphone. Using a display dock or adapter (sold separately), you can connect a keyboard, mouse and monitor to your phone and use your smartphone as the start menu. Many of the built in apps like Word, PowerPoint and Outlook are universal which means they will auto-scale to the screen.
We all dream about having a personal assistant and with Cortana – now you can. Microsoft’s virtual assistant is one of the coolest features of Windows 10. You can command Cortana to search or perform an action. One of the things you’ll love the most about Cortana is built in reminders. For example, ‘Cortana, remind me to pick up milk from the supermarket on the way home tonight’ and based on the time and your location you’ll get the reminder you need!
Microsoft just lifted their tech game with Windows Hello. They’ve taken a different approach to smartphone security by using infra-red camera technology to unlock your phone by scanning your iris to authenticate you. Just like something out of a spy movie, stare deeply at the screen for a couple of seconds while the 5 megapixel front facing camera will scan your eye and that’s it – you’re in!
To deliver amazing software experiences, both phones are equipped with powerful processors. This means smoother moving between apps, launching the camera and taking photos.
Advanced camera technology
Lumia is known for their awesome cameras and just like previous Lumia devices this one does not disappoint. The 20MP PureView back camera will capture beautiful photos and you’ll also be able to use it for recording on 4K.
