Microsoft Lumia 950 04

Both the Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL can let a user download apps from Microsoft’s Universal App Store. Microsoft announced their Universal App Store for Windows 10 a few months ago where Windows PC, Tablet and Smartphone users can download their apps regardless of which Windows 10 device they use.

With Continuum built-in to the Lumias and the Microsoft Display Dock connected, the devices can become a true and complete desktop PC with a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Even the interface is close to the Windows 10 OS installed in my notebook, so the familiarity of Windows 10 is there which means the learning curve for the user should be easy. The PC that you use for emails, Office documents and web browsing is actually your mobile phone! Isn’t that fantastic?

The Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL will be available in our shores after 2 weeks. I have already requested a review unit with the Microsoft Display Dock, and I will do a full review once I already have them.
