Microsoft Lumia 950 price in India is Rs.43,999 and Lumia 950XL price in India is Rs.49,399. In this post we will have a quick hands review on Lumia 950XL.

Microsoft Lumia 950XL runs on latest Windows 10. This brings in new features such as Continuum, Cortana,Hello,Edge and MS Office suite. From the look wise, Windows 10 looks very similar to Windows 8 mobile. But there is few changes in icons and addition of new quick settings . Its more of new a features rather than change of UI. In my short duration with the phone, there is no shutter or lag is observed.  The clean look and easy UI feels refreshing and good to use.
