Techradar deals: The best Microsoft Lumia 950 XL deals for December

Best Lumia 950XL deals

Lumia 950 XL deals

Microsoft’s finally brought out a top of the range smartphone in 2015, and this is the phone for you if you’re thinking of getting a handset that could actually replace your PC.

The Lumia 950 XL is a phone with a huge 5.7-inch QHD screen, oodles of power inside thanks to the Snapdragon 810 chipset inside (combined with a decent 3GB of RAM) and for those that love customisation, there’s a removable back, battery and microSD slot as well.

Let’s talk camera – the sensor is a 20MP effort but with the Pureview technology nabbed when Microsoft bought Nokia, which really helps to enhance snaps all over the place – low light, general landscapes, selfies, they’re all accounted for.

It’s a phablet that offers the very best from Microsoft in a simple package – top end specs and something very different from the rest on the market.
