Like it's little brother, the Lumia 950, the 950 XL can turn into a Windows 10 computer using a feature called Continuum. Connect it to a monitor, keyboard and mouse and it will act as both a computer, with full Windows 10 apps, and a smartphone.

The Microsoft Display Dock lets you connect the phone to accessories including the mouse and keyboard.

On the back, there's a big camera like we've seen on many Lumias before.

There's a dedicated camera button, optical image stabilization and a triple-LED flash.

The phone is powered through a USB Type-C connector. So it doesn't matter whether you plug in the charging cable right-side up or upside down -- it'll work either way.
