Snag the Microsoft Lumia 950 from AT&T for under $300

Snag the Microsoft Lumia 950 from AT&T for under $300
The Microsoft Lumia 950 is a 2015 flagship model, which means that it doesn't come with the latest specs. But what it does come with is a great price from AT&T. Right now, all it takes is $298.99 to grab the handset away from the wireless operator. Keep in mind that this is an off-contract price. And if you want to purchase the Lumia 950 using an equipment installment plan, the unit can be yours with 30 monthly payments of $9.97.

Available in Black and White, the Lumia 950 comes with a 5.2-inch AMOLED display carrying a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution. Whether it was done because of overheating fears or for a different reason, Microsoft felt compelled to stuff the Snapdragon 808 SoC under the hood instead of the Snapdragon 810. That means that the Lumia 950 is equipped with a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage. Those seeking additional memory can access the 200GB capacity microSD slot.

On the back of the phone is a 20MP camera featuring an aperture of f/1.9. The rear snapper also offer OIS and a tri-color LED flash. A 5MP front-facing camera handles selfies, and a 3000mAh battery powers up the whole device. The Lumia 950 does support Continuum which means that with the Display Dock, a screen, keyboard and mouse, you can use your phone to drive a make shift desktop PC.

Even with last year's specs, the Lumia 950 is more than a serviceable handset. If interested, visit your local AT&T store or click on the slideshow below.

Good price if your looking for a WM phone. Too bad it isn't also the price directly from the MS store.

I like the Lumia 950 but the problem is the hardware isn't even the 810 that's why I bought the 950xl and soon HP x3 elite then the God of phones the Surface Phone. Windows 10 mobile is the future and will become full desktop once continuum 2 is out x86 phone will change the mobile space Steve Jobs is resurrected as Panos Panay!

Hehe you're cute when you're delusional. I have the 950XL too. It's a decent phone no doubt. But surface phone is unlikely to be x86. MS is pushing UWP, to make an x86 phone that uses w32 would make no sense when they are trying to get everyone to move to uwp from w32.

The x86 programs will be enabled when in continuum mode. That will be all that's needed I'm not delusional I use all platforms including using my Nexus 6p but with google they want come off as friendly but in reality they are serpents. That make money off the one thing people hate which is advertising hell even YouTube starting to suck, look at the top of YouTube it tells you to download chrome spam ware much. Microsoft and windows 10 mobile is here to stay and will put them back in their place as a web browser.

Honestly, with how I paid $11.99 for a clearance Lumia 640 I wouldn't pay more than $60 for this Lumia 950. The lack of Google apps makes Windows Mobile 10 pretty useless.

Useless to you, not to everyone. Personally use android, but I also download very few apps, I think windows 10 would do everything I need just fine. Most apps I play with and get bored of very quickly, no need to keep downloading them, phone has everything I need pre-installed and I'm sure windows 10 does too.

Dude, seriously....we get that you don't like anything other than Android. But you don't have to troll everything that's not Android. Use what you like, and let others use what they like in peace. Not everyone wants or needs Android.

Good deal!! But MSFT should try to convince xiaomi to make some mid-range flagships With W10!!

Xiaomi is in the business of selling lots of handsets. Making a Windows 10 Mobile phone would be the opposite of that goal.

XiaoMi did add run an internal trial to let Mi phone users convert their Android phone into WP phone via a ROM update. You could check it out if you want. http://en.miui.com/thread-189556-1-1.html

Don't know, but you could buy it direct from the Microsoft store and it would be unlocked, they've got a sale on it too

After my generally bad experience with 2 Windows Phones, I'm not really interested.
