CNET First Look
Microsoft Lumia 950, 950 XL usher in Windows 10 for phonesSome cool software features (like iris scanning!) join hardware in the first flagship phones we've seen from Microsoft in more than a year.
[MUSIC] The Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL. These are the first two flagship phones running on the Windows 10 operating system. I'm Jessica Dolcourt from CNET. The two phones are pretty much the same in all their core attributes, except that of course the XL is bigger. It's got a 5.7 inch display, rather [UNKNOWN] got a 5.2 inch display. The processor's eight core rather than six core and the battery is just a little bit bigger. Well, the first thing I noticed when I'm holding them is that they're not made of metal like so many phones today. They are made of plastic. They still feel pretty good. Unlike a lot of those unibody devices, you can take the back off and take out the battery. There's also a micro SC card slot for more storage. Some of the other specs you're gonna find include a 20 megapixel camera on the back and a triple LED flash. This promises to reduce red eye and make things look a whole lot more natural. There's a USB type On the bottom that promises fast charging and also uses a reversible charger, so you don't have to fumble with which way is up. On the front is a five megapixel camera and the phones are also equipped with Windows Hello, which will scan your irises to unlock the phone. Another cool feature with Windows Phone is that you'll be able to connect a keyboard, a monitor, and a mouse And actually turn this into a PC when you travel. So when these phones start selling in November, you can check out our full impressions at cnet.com.
