What pray tell is continuum?
It's Microsoft's epic attempt at making a plastic dependable lumium 950 into a force as powerful as your PC.
You start with something like this Display Dock or this HDMI dongle, set it up on your phone, and voila, you can access all the stuff on the Lumia 950 from a larger screen.
Why is this cool?
Well, imagine you're a road warrior, working on Microsoft Office docs in the office, and also on the move.
Or say you want to show your friends photos of the trip or a video clip without you all hovering around your tiny screen.
With a little software and hardware, you can control the content of your phone using your screen as a remote.
Or, you could also use a wired, or wireless keyboard or mouse.
The main thing you need, is the bigger screen.
The idea is admittedly really cool, and it all sounds great in theory, but in practice Set up a newsboard quite so simple.
And I'm honestly not sure how often I'd use it.
Luckily, as the first phone with Windows 10 software, the Lumia 950 is more than just continuum alone.
It's also got a cleaner interface that looks pretty spiffy, an accurate iris scanner that unlocks the phone when it peers deeply into your eyes.
It even winks at you.
The phone itself has a nice large display that's not so big it breaks your hands, and a terrific 20 megapixel camera that takes bright clear shots, and fights low light doldrums for all its worth.
It's made of plastic, and not metal, but you can pop out the battery, and pop in a storage card, both of which are becoming more rare.
The Cortana voice assistant and offline maps are also great too.
This isn't a phone that iPhone and Android fans will rung to, it just doesn't have the apps, including native support for Google services.
But, fans of Windows phones are in for a very nice treat with some of these thoughtful touches in Windows 10.
