Windows 10

With the 950 Microsoft launches the mobile phase of Windows 10. Compared to its predecessor Windows Phone 8.1 has technically changed a lot. In Lumia 950 compared with the predecessors on the surface but all very familiar. The most important advantage is, at least for office users, the Continuum function. With a special docking adapter you can connect the Lumia 950 Dual SIM in the test to a monitor and keyboard wirelessly connect and mouse. Once the phone this link registered, it switches the display to a desktop layout. This is really amazing, because you in the operation has the impression of working on a normal PC with an external monitor.

Display: 5.2 inches

With its screen size of 5.2 inches , the 950 joins the magnitude of Android super phones like Galaxy S6 and LG G4. And even with the resolution, the new Lumia does not have to hide.
2560 x 1440 pixels are simply top. For normal use, this pixel densityof 564 ppi been no discernible benefits more. From about 300 ppi you already recognize under normal use, no further individual pixels.Who smartphone but as for VR placed applications directly in the eyes, should notice the difference.

Camera resolution

The camera on the back of the phone can be clearly seen on silver frame. It dissolves very high 20.0 megapixels, which puts them in the vicinity of the Sony Xperia Z-series. But not only the pure image resolution is relevant. The aperture determines the image quality, because the better the luminous efficiency, the better may turn the result. With an aperture of f1,9 the 950 dual SIM can record a very good value for themselves. The sensor size is 1 / 2.4 inches, which could also provide the test for more brilliance.

Camera Features

Operation with autofocus is in smartphones already the norm. But the 950 is an optical image stabilizer included which is a real Oberliga Plate with mobile phones. Also a special feature: If you use the physical camera button, so you can work as with "real" digital cameras with two different pressure points. In an optical zoom but you have to give. Thereby the already slightly protruding from the housing construction would certainly be once again significantly higher.

From the side: We are excited about the camera of Lumia 950 Dual in the test. It protrudes slightly from the case, but at more Super Phones currently the case.

Selfies & Co

THe front camera is befitting: it offers 5 megapixel resolution with wide angle, so that smaller groups should be well combined together on the selfie. With Full HD also fits the image. The aperture is F2.4 here, but can keep up compared to other phones in the front cameras.

  • Natural Blitz

Mobile Internet and dual SIM

The Lumia 950 Dual SIM supports all available in Germany Mobile standards. This also fast 4G Internet is possible, also, to the inability of some import phones LTE frequency 800 MHz. The two cards are parallel to receive, but can not be used simultaneously to call. This dual SIM standby principle is currently normal in all current models in our test. About one, depending on the contract, possibly paid Diversion within the two SIMs but can also be calls eg on SIM1 SIM2 forward to if you just talked to this. Then many tariffs the so-called Brokering is possible and you can switch between the calls back and forth, or combine both calls to the conference.
  • 2G: GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz).
  • 3G: UMTS / HSPA + (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz) with up to 42.2 Mbit / s download.

SIM cards

For this Lumia model the format "nano-SIM" is required. How to insert the SIM card into the Lumia 950? This video shows it in great detail, so you do not need to test after the purchase itself.

Memory and Performance

With 3 GB RAM of memory is in the range of the upper class. Meanwhile, 4 GB at flagship standard, individual devices even offer already 6GB.Also the internal memory falls good but not outstanding with a 32 GB. After all, can be via microSD card up to 200GB use. Who wants to have all the files directly on the phone, including photos, videos, songs that can thus certainly cover most of its needs. And who buys the Lumia 950 with a contract and Internetflat which can already stream many services mobile songs or radio, download videos, etc.

battery pack

With 3000 mAh battery capacity is good sized - due to the high amount of pixels, and the large display of consumption is relatively high also in lighter work compared. In addition, the processor does not allow saving settings as some octa-core chips, which mostly only 4 thrifty cores are used when low power is required.
Charging also corresponds to the current flagship Trend. So if you do not want to use the included USB-C charger, the battery can also wirelessly supply power. If it should happen very quickly, you can change the battery - an advantage compared to most phones with metal unibody: However, it is included only one battery pack included.
