Deadlines with superb cameras, quick charging and Continuum.
Windows 10 in focus
This is thus the first phones that are sold with Windows 10 innabords.
Microsoft thought is that Windows 10 will be the last operating system they create, and that this is an operating system for all devices – everything from small Raspberry Pi, via mobile phones, tablets, laptops and Xbox to Surface Hub; a huge 84-inch screen we also got the opportunity to Tafsas bit, even if it costs 2000 $ and are aimed at conference.
Apropos Xbox – this is updated to Windows 10 on Nov. 12, ie next week.
Phone as a PC
A particularly neat feature in Windows 10 on mobile phones are feature Microsoft has called Continuum. By connecting your phone to a small box (Display dock), it can then be diverted to PC monitor, TV or whatever.
Meanwhile, you can use both mouse and keyboard (either wired or via Bluetooth), thus behaving phone as if you had used a normal Windows 10 PCs – at least virtually.
And good news: Anyone who buys 950 or 950 XL by the end of January 2016 get with such a lump receive – free of charge.
The camera looks very good
The models we got looked at were prototypes that had not completed software, but from what we could see by inspecting images on screen so it is very good in the relatively dim light where the presentation took place.
Also flash shots seemed to be better than normal – the new phones have namely an RGB flash that can light in any color. Thus, the flash light follow the colors of the surroundings, so that you avoid chalk white faces even when using the flash.
950 and 950 XL has also optical bildestsabilisator and camera resolution of 20 megapixels. This we rejoice especially to peek out when we get our test copies.
Another thing Microsoft introduces Windows 10, Windows Hello, that makes you either can use biometric data to log into the device rather than passwords and PINs. Lumia phones do this in the form of an eye-scanning with infrared light, which should be very reliable.
Although it seemed like a neat feature, we must admit that the rate could not compete with the latest fingerprint sensors (eg. IPhone 6s and Huawei Mate S), but it can obviously also be improved ahead of the launch.
Otherwise the phones also very fast charging – according to the representative we talked to yesterday 0-100 percent in one hour blank. The storage space is 32GB, working memory 3GB and both phones support memory cards. The battery capacity is respectively 3.000mAh and 3.340mAh for 950 and 950 XL.
