Microsoft Lumia 950, 950 XL size comparison vs Apple iPhone 6s, Samsung Galaxy, Nexus and more


Microsoft rocked the stage in New York today: it unveiled an impressively innovative new family of products with a surprisingly lively (sometimes a bit over the top) presentation.

The two devices we care most about here at PhoneArena are the new Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, the new premium Windows 10 handsets.

In a strategy reminding us of recent developments in Google's Nexus, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are of the same kind, but of different sizes. The Lumia 950 is a 5.2-inch phone with the Snapdragon 808, while the Lumia 950 XL is a 5.7-inch handset with the Snapdragon 810 system chip.

We've already dissected the specs in various comparisons and in-depth articles, but what we want to focus on here is the pure size: how big are the new Lumia 950 series phones? It turns out: they are quite compact for their size, even surprisingly so. We first start by comparing the 5.2" Lumia 950 to the top dogs in its size class and then continue to see how the 5.7" Lumia 950 XL compares with important phablets. Take a look right below.
