Microsoft Lumia 950 XL vs Google Nexus 6P vs Motorola Moto X Style: specs comparison

12

With the Lumia 950 XL, Microsoft just declared its ambitions to reclaim its somewhat lost and forlorn positions on the smartphone market. The 5.7-inch device goes all-in and doesn't skimp in the specs department, as well as an interesting set of software features, like Continuum. We can safely say that the Lumia 950 XL is the most advanced and well-spec'd device Microsoft has released so far.

True, it seems that the new super-sized heir of the Lumia 930/Icon is aiming straight at the most popular handsets out there. Namely, these would be the Galaxy Note5 and the iPhone 6s, but we already compared this venerable trio. Additionally, the Lumia 950 XL has other rivals, and these are two stock and almost stock troopers - the Nexus 6P and the Moto X Style.

Check out how the three compare against one another in terms of specs and specs alone.
