Engadget Review

The Lumia 950 is the first phone to run Windows 10 Mobile, a revamped software platform that aims to make Windows Phones do more than ever before. Both have promise -- the former with its great camera andsuper high-res screen, the latter with stand-out features like Continuum and Windows Hello.Ultimately, we're left witha phone that doesn't feel as expensive as it is, running software that still needs some polishand stronger app support.
