In terms of look, Microsoft Lumia 950 is significantly identical to previous high-end Lumia smartphones. It measures 8.25 mm in thickness and 150 grams in weight – clearly outdone in these regards by the iPhone 6S.

However, Microsoft Lumia 950 beats out the latest Apple flagship phone with a bigger 5.2-inch display and a significantly better Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels for awesome pixel density of about 564 ppi. The stunning AMOLED display is protected by scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Lumia devices have been known for their camera capabilities; this smartphone continues with the tradition. Microsoft Lumia 950 packs an amazing 20-megapixel ZEISS main camera with f/1.9 aperture, triple LED natural flash and optical image stabilisation for awesome image capturing.

The shooter, which thumps the one on the iPhone 6S, at least on paper, can record stunning 4K videos. Like in the Lumia 950 XL, the Microsoft Lumia 950 offers a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera with Full HD (1080p) video recording capability on the front.
