AT&T's Microsoft Lumia 950 officially launches tomorrow

AT&T just announced that it's going to be the first US mobile carrier to sell the Microsoft Lumia 950 - one of the world's first two smartphones to run Windows 10 out of the box. Just as recently rumored, the Lumia 950 is launching on November 20 in AT&T retail stores, though online orders will be accepted starting tomorrow, November 17. Both the black, and the white variants of the handset will be available.

AT&T will offer the Lumia 950 for $149.99 with a new 2-year contract agreement, or $599 off contract. Additionally, customers will be able to get the handset on AT&T Next starting from $19.97 per month (for 30 months).

The Lumia 950 shares the title of Microsoft flagship smartphone with the Lumia 950 XL, which will start shipping directly from Microsoft on November 25. Sporting a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, the Lumia 950 features a six-core Snapdragon 808 processor, a 20 MP PureView rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, a 3000 mAh battery, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and 15 GB of free OneDrive storage space. Cortana, Microsoft Edge browser, Microsoft Continuum, and all the features of Windows 10 are also on board.

Haha you're definitely gonna love Windows Phone! Was lag in android the thing that made you jump the gun or was it the superior Lumia cameras? Or continuum?

That's how my iPhone 6 is...atleast it just refreshes. Chrome crashes more and more everyday. So much so I had to get my laptop out to use for pressing stuff. This phone is ridiculous.

I just got out from the Microsoft-ecosystem. Never going back there.

Posts: 810; Member since: Dec 07, 2010's pretty depressing. I am still curious to see how this Lumia 950 will be. But WP10 was just pretty sad.

WP10? What's that? I must have missed that sad OS. I am glad there is the awesome Windows 10 Mobile though.

I have issues on my Lumia 1020 running Windows 10 Mobile using this website, its an issue with the website, but I don't constantly refresh like that. They force the ads to load first before you can click on any article and then unfriendly and hard to close ads pop up on each article. I prefer to use this website in a full browser with an Ad-Blocker. I wouldn't block their ads if they weren't so obtrusive and added a minute of extra loading time, even on my 60 MBps connection... Their mobile version of their website is certainly not mobile friendly.

If you're buying outright - wait for it to be at the Microsoft store. It'll be a good deal cheaper.

nah prices won't drop just by being at the microsoft store. If you're buying outright however use someone's @edu email and you'll get the educational programme discount of 10%.

10% isn't a huge discount to make a difference.

I mean if you're dirt poor I can understand it not making a difference since you won't be able to afford it anyway.

I'm not ready to switch away from Android yet, but I bought my brother his first smartphone and gave him a Lumia 920. This'll be his next.

Just wait till spring. You can get it half off on cl or ebay. I am afraid that sales will continue to suffer with no apps. I pray I am wrong because Windows is very smooth os

They need better designers at microsoft, imagine if Samsung made this design on their flagships, trolls will be all over the place. Besides the design, id love to test out the camera on this phone.

i'm a nokia fan, i didn't like this design. They ruin nokia design. And this year sammy made good design on their flagship and note. i did like design. (speaking truth & everyone is not a troll) after all 950 & XL is best wp device.

I agree the 950 looks bland and cheap. so here I wont complain about material looks cheap only when its not flagship phone and price. And dont talk like polycarbonate is superior material.. the fact is most of low end phone already made of polycarbonate.

Polycarbonate is the superior material, less RF interference, doesn't scratch, dent or ding like aluminum does, doesn't interfere with NFC, or wireless charging. Most low end phones are not made of Polycarbonate, they are made of cheap plastic such as the Galaxy s4. Not to mention, these devices look far better in person than these pictures. You need to hold one in your hands before you judge them so harshly. The polycarbonate on my Lumia 1020 looks and feels premium, these new devices do as well.

In the initial days of mobile revolution, when facebook, instagram, twitter usage was not so rampant. I use to wonder the logic behind spending so much money on a mobile phone, u could get a very decent laptop for that price. Today the doubt has been cleared, a powerful mobile device on move and a desktop while at work or home.
