Microsoft has launched its new range of Lumia phones which are part of the Windows 10 devices. The three new phones include the Lumia 950 and 950XL, Lumia 650 and Lumia 550.
Microsoft Lumia 950
The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL were the first Windows 10 Lumia phones to be launched and they are the newest premium phones from Microsoft. One of the key features of the Microsoft Lumia 950 is the ability to transform the phone to a PC-like experience with Continuum for Phones and the Microsoft Display Dock.

This means that in the absence of a laptop or desktop, one can still use the phone to scale apps beautifully on a bigger screen when connected, or work on an Office document, browse the Internet and even stream full HD movies downloaded from the Windows Store.
It also still allows the owner to use the phone independently to do something different, for instance, taking a call or sending a text message while at the same time using apps on the bigger screen. With the latest-generation PureView cameras with 20-megapixel sensors, triple LED natural flash and 4K video capture, the Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL enable faster focus and crisper images and videos even in challenging conditions.
The Microsoft Lumia 950 retails for Kshs 65,000 while the XL version retails for Kshs 69,999. For a limited period of time, both phones will come with the Microsoft Display dock free of charge.
