Switch is easy from iPhone using OneDrive to save your contacts, pictures and documents so you’re ready to go.
USB Type-C Charger
The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL is one of the first mainstream phones to come with a USB Type-C connector. This is different to the standard micro USB connector seen on most new phones.
In the box you will find a cable with a USB Type-C connector one end and a standard USB A connector on the other. We sell spares of this cable here. You will also find the included mains adaptor has an attached cable with a USB Type-C connector.
If you don't have a computer with a USB Type-C port, you may be interested in a spare USB Type-C to Type-A cable. This will also work with mains adaptors that have a standard Type-A port.
Read more about the new USB Type-C standard on our blog.
An all-new browsing experience.
Microsoft Edge Internet browser gives you a better, more personal web experience. Edge has been designed for easy sharing, reading, researching, and, more importantly, getting things done.
For example, using Reading List, you can save your favourite articles and other content to view on your phone later. Plus with Cortana working in-sync, you can find content and sites based on your interests and preferences.*
Only when a moment is saved is it truly captured.
When you take a photo using Microsoft Lumia 950 XL, you can choose to save the image automatically to OneDrive alongside all your other content for safekeeping. Each photo will even be dated and organized for you. The built-in Windows 10 Photos app will even date and organize your photos, allowing you to access your favourite moments from your phone, tablet or PC.*
Just point and shoot. We’ll do the rest.
When it comes to photo taking, quality is everything. Microsoft Lumia 950 XL features a 20MP main camera sensor with triple LED natural flash enabling faster focus and crispier images even in the most challenging of conditions.
Microsoft Lumia 950 XL also comes with advanced photo-capturing technology, ensuring you never again miss out on those unforgettable moments. 4K video capture works by recording footage at 30 frames per second, allowing you to edit, convert and save individual frames into still images for safekeeping.
Lightning fast charge.
Microsoft Lumia 950 XL features USB-C Fast Charging, a great new feature where you can charge 50% of your battery in half an hour. Microsoft Lumia 950 XL will also feature built-in wireless charging (wireless chargers sold separately).***
