Top Features and Benefits of Lumia 950

  • The best of Windows 10. Thanks to Windows 10 and programs and features such as Cortana, Microsoft Office and the Windows Store, Lumia 950 delivers a personal yet productive experience.
  • Continuum and Microsoft Display Dock. Use your Lumia 950 like a PC by connecting it to a bigger screen, keyboard and mouse with Microsoft Display Dock, an optional accessory that enhances the new Windows 10 Continuum experience for phones — and simultaneously charges your device. Scale and display Windows apps beautifully on the bigger screen when connected, or work on a Microsoft Office document, browse the Internet and stream movies for your kids. Plus, you’ll be able to use your phone independently to take a call or send a text message while you continue to enjoy apps on the bigger screen.
