Microsoft 950 XL vs Apple iPhone 6s Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note5: specs comparison

21

Microsoft just announced its brand new 5.7-inch Lumia 950 XL, a new addition to its smartphone portfolio. The thing that truly captures in this device is the liquid cooling tech that aims to put the leash on the on-board Snapdragon 810 chipset and prevent it from over-heating, which is an issue plaguing it.

The Lumia 950 XL has a pretty good specs sheet, to say the least. We won't list all of the specs here, as these can be viewed by scrolling down. Apart from the raw technical data, you will certainly notice the two other rather notable headsets that we've also thrown in: the iPhone 6s Plus and the Galaxy Note5.

As we are curious to see how the three compare against each other.
