Microsoft Lumia 950 XL review
Microsoft Lumia 950 XL review.
After company representatives said in October that Windows 10 mobile upgrades would start sometime this month, Microsoft is now saying it won’t happen until early 2016. “The Windows 10 Mobile upgrade will begin rolling out early next year to select existing Windows 8 and 8.1 phones,” a Microsoft spokesperson recently told ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley. Microsoft released the first Windows 10 phones in November with the launch of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, but many users with Windows 8.1 phones are also being promised an upgrade to Microsoft’s latest and greatest. The first devices in line for Windows 10 include the Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532, Lumia 535, Lumia 540, Lumia 635 (1GB RAM), Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, and Lumia 930.
There should be more handsets to come, as any device with the Lumia Denim update and more than 8GB of internal memory should be able to handle Windows 10. Not only will synchronized updates keep every Windows 10 device current with the same software (with obvious adjustments for each device type), but new features that further integrate phones and PCs can roll out to both Windows desktops and mobile handsets at the same time.
Microsoft still hasn’t perfected the software algorithms to comfortably take a photo with automatic processing to the point where I trust I can point and shoot. Still, between Rich Capture and the extensive controls Microsoft offers in the camera app, you can get some really great results if you’re willing to put the time and effort into setting it all up. I’ve run into weird bugs where I’ve had to reboot the device, and I can’t even add my Google Apps work calendar to the device because of a weird Windows 10 bug that messes up all of our meetings.
In addition to the phone, you’ll need Microsoft’s $99 Display Dock (or a Miracast adapter), a mouse and keyboard (Bluetooth or USB), and a monitor or TV.
