Windows 10-Powered Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950XL now in the Philippines

The newest flagship smartphones from Microsoft have just arrived in the Philippine market and these are the Lumia 950 and its bigger brother Lumia 950XL. As expected, both of these devices run on the latest OS coming from Microsoft, the Windows 10.

These two Windows 10-powered devices are equipped with Snapdragon 808 (Lumia 950) and Snapdragon 810 (Lumia 950XL), and while many users claim to have experienced overheating issues with these chips, Microsoft implemented a liquid-cooling solution in these Lumia devices to keep the insides cooler and nicer while you throw heavy and demanding tasks to any of these smartphones.

Lumia 950 and 950 XL offer specs and features on a flagship level, like their displays which are pegged at Quad HD resolution (2560x1440) with AMOLED technology, Qi Wireless charging, USB Type-C, Quick Charge, dual-SIM and up to LTE cellular support. You can see more specs below for each of these handsets.

One of the most exciting things about these new Lumia flagship devices is the inclusion of Microsoft-exclusive Continuum for Phones functionality. This feature simply turns the device into a full-blown PC through the help of a Display Dock, which is also to be sold by Microsoft for Php3,390. This built-in Continuum feature is what I am really excited the most about these phones, I wanna try how this is going to work in reality and know what are the best things and possibly negative things about it.
“We designed Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL for people who want the most productive smartphones running the most productive operating system,” said Jon French, General Manager for APAC, Microsoft Mobile Devices Sales.

“With full Windows 10 and features like Continuum for phone, it’s easy to do more than ever from your phone whether you’re in the office, at home or on the road,” added French. It was further demonstrated that the devices could “work like a PC with Windows 10 apps like Microsoft Office, while simultaneously taking calls or performing other tasks.”



According to other tech blogs I have read, since the Continuum technology is still in its early stage we cannot expect all the Windows-based applications and programs to run on Continuum mode. To be exact, .exe files are currently not supported, but apps downloaded from Windows Store are going to be fine. I find this feature very cool and very promising, let's just hope that many developers are also going to build more apps that support this thing from Microsoft.
