Microsoft Lumia 950 XL: Software and Features

The Lumia 950 phone runs on the latest Windows 10 operating system, which looks more interesting than the hardware of this handset. This phone is not provided by the fingerprint sensor but there is Windows Hello feature from Microsoft that allows you to unlock your phone with the help of your eyes. Just look at the front facing camera of this phone and the lens will automatically detect that you are a registered user or not and will then unlock the phone.

However, for getting a perfect result you will be required to hold the phone close to your face and keep it steady for Windows Hello to work. This will make you look a bit daft is you are out somewhere and can also prove out a bit tricky if you are walking. Also, in dark environment you will fail to get your phone unlocked using the Windows Hello feature. Instead, you will be forced to get it unlocked by entering a PIN. Even when Windows Hello feature is working it’s never faster than tapping the four digit code onto the phone using your fingers. A fingerprint sensor similar to the one on Sony Xperia Z5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 is most preferable.

Another interesting feature of the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL handset is the Windows Continuum, which allows you to attach your device to a TV or monitor through HDMI or Display Port and create a temporary desktop. We can say that Windows Continuum is a game changer feature from the manufacturer as it proves out that the mobile phones can replace almost anything on Tech available.

This new features doesn’t come to you free of cost with the Microsoft phone but you will be required to pay £100 to enjoy it on your handset.
