Lumia 950: price below 300 euro, even with dock

With prices by partly under 300 euro, the Lumia 950 is a real bargain now. The dual-SIM version is available on the Microsoft store (Lumia 950 dual) up-to-date (stand: September 6, 2016) even officially for 299 euros for sale including Microsoft dock (for monitor, keyboard, mouse). Students get even cheaper: you get more 29.90 Euro discount, pay even only 269,10 EUR. The larger Lumia 950 XL costs 399 euros for students only 359,10 EUR. Both offers are real bargains in the face of the installed technology, especially for the mobile work, also Word, Excel, powerpoint and onenote are installed in mobile versions. For this you must forgo GO, Snapchat and connect to smart hardware such as Sonos popular apps like Pokémon. And even if Microsoft mobile adheres itself to Windows 10, support for Windows smartphones currently rather goes back. One reason: Microsoft itself makes only a few new models at the start and other manufacturers are still so far not caught on.

Fix startup problems

The connectivity problems with Bluetooth hands-free devices in cars by Mercedes and VW are now resolved after several firmware and software updates. Still not very long battery life can be in practice to switch off the live view function (displaying the time in standby mode, deactivated in the settings submenu extras) extend. With the latest firmware version finally works unlocking of the display by double tap on the screen, but not so smooth as previous Lumia smartphones. Despite the update on the anniversary update Windows 10 not reflected mature mobile in all points. Also, the latest apps by Twitter and Facebook offer similar functions such as the iphone, dispense but on special Windows phone features such as the automatic synchronization of profile photos, contact details and the timeline with the built-in address book.

Lumia 950: as well as the XL version?

The Lumia 950 950 XL offers similar technology as the great Lumia, but there are three important differences: for one, the display provides only a diameter of 5.2 inches (instead of 5.7 inches at Lumia 950 XL), reached in about the size of the Galaxy S6. Because he has the same high number of pixels (2560 x 1440 pixels), he is effectively but sharper. Apart from the display of the Lumia 950 in the test with a similarly high reserve of brightness and contrast levels as the display at 950 XL impressed. On the other hand the six core processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 1.8 gigahertz) is used, while in the larger Lumia 810 for tempo 950 XL octa-core processor Snapdragon (but also ensures high heat). In the test of everyday life was the Lumia 950 not slower than the XL version, responded in some points even faster. In addition, the battery with 2,900 is mah somewhat weaker than the XL version (3,270 mah). Thus, the Lumia 950 in the test reached a very meager battery life of only eight hours and 20 minutes. This is the high power consumption of the new Windows 10 smartphones in standby mode over an hour less than the iphone 6 was on striking. Cannot be excluded that Microsoft here means less power hunger anything with a future Windows-10 update. An advantage over the large Lumia 950 XL: the loading coils are arranged at the Lumia 950 so that older Wireless charging slots such as the Nokia DT-910 or the car holder Nokia CR-200 more easily work.

Save videos, if necessary to 4 K (3840 x 2160 pixels at 30 fps). The front camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels. In the test, convinced the photo quality on full line, is clearly better and above all faster than the already good predecessor Lumia 930. The Lumia is 950 (like the Lumia 950 XL) the first smartphone that photos in situations with low light well reaches the note and keeps right on this point at the test time (November 28, 2015) 1st place.
