posted by Florin T. / Nov 16, 2015, 2:24 PM
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.

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%.

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 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.
