A closer look at the Lumia 950 XL camera

The Lumia 950 XL has the best camera Microsoft has ever created. That's what Juha Alakarhu tells us. He's responsible for imaging technology development in Phones at Microsoft. We spoke with him during the launch in New York City and he explained (and showed) the reasons behind the bold statement. Check out the 10-minute video!

Lumia 950 and 950 XL camera highlights

  • 20-megapixel
  • F/1.9 aperture
  • 1/2.4-inch sensor
  • 1.12-micron pixel size
  • ISO up to 12800
  • Zeiss optics
  • 5th generation Optical Image Stabilization
  • Triple LED natural flash
  • 4K video recording
  • Rich Capture automatically chooses the best camera mode
  • Completely new color processing algorithm
  • Seems faster

Juha showed a couple of image comparisons with the Samsung Galaxy S6. In one of the sample images, the Lumia 950 XL appeared to have more details and more natural colors. In another sample image, the Lumia 950 XL handled motion better, resulting in a sharper image of an object that is moving in low light. We were very impressed, but we'll have to test it out ourselves.

And in case you were wondering about camera speed, Juha showed us how fast the camera app opened after clicking the dedicated camera button from the Start screen. He also showed how quickly the Lumia 950 XL captured images by tapping the onscreen camera button multiple times.

What are your thoughts on the Lumia 950 XL camera after watching the demo? Are you convinced? What are your concerns? Let us know in the comments!

Editor's Note: I had a chance to talk to Juha about the new cameras and even saw some of the latest builds. Interestingly, the "processing" delays seem all but gone in the latest versions of the Camera app. This is in contrast to some of the demos on the floor, which had older builds on them still. At least from what I saw, when this phone and the final release of the Camera app come out, the experience should be much better than it is now in the Insider preview. What I saw was very inspiring and gave me confidence that these will be great cameras.

Also, it is worth mentioning that the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL cameras are exactly the same, despite outward appearances.

Regarding Panorama and slow-motion video recording, Windows Phone users will have a little while to wait, which is the bad news. Rewriting all those algorithms and software for Windows 10 is quite the undertaking, but the Lumia camera team still have big plans. -Rubino

  • I just tested this 950xl. Camera is super fast! EDIT: SO EXCITED!
  • I agree!!! Just tested it out in the store and just like Panos Panay, I am "pumped" (so totally :D ) Was awesome fast.
  • How did you like the other devices (Surface Book, Surface Pro 4, Band 2)? I thought everything was fist class! Totally pumped!!!  
  • @Mark. I was in NY on 6th and had a chance to play around with everything. I can tell you this much. Everything was beyond my expectations. Band has improved tremendously. The issues we had with Band battery cover etc... No more. Phones are super light for their size. Those SP4 and SB screens are awesome. Build quality is superior to any product I have seen on the market. Now... Need to get a raise! :P
  • You read Tom Warren's article on the panay Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Do all MS Stores have demo units to check out already then? It's 90 minutes to the closest one, but that sounds tempting.
  • yup. i was surprised when i went to preorder everything.  i told em can i just buy these looolololol
  • I went yesterday to a kiosk in a mall (Alderwood Mall, Lynnwood, WA) and they had a 950XL prototype.  I had my 3 year old in-tow so I couldn't play around for too long but the XL was light and felt nimble.  Still a little big for me. Plus being on AT&T, the 950 on contract will be the most likely move.
  • Note: Microsoft is selling the 950XL in-store unlocked!
  • Yes, but not everyone has $650 (plus tax) to drop on a phone on a whim.
  • How does it feel to hold it ion your hand? Is it too big??? I have a L920 for over to years and I would like to buy the 950xl. Unfortunately, I live in greece and i cant test it myself. Thanks in advance :)
  • As a 1520 owner, I can tell you that this likely will feel fine if you have average sized hands or bigger. It takes a little getting used to with a big phone, but once you do, you will HATE smaller phones. I crazed the screen on my 1520 and bought a spare 830, and I hate the size of it.
  • Thank you very much for the reply!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Before I got the 1520 I said: "No way do I want such a large phone". Now, I couldn't imagine getting anything smaller. I kind of wished the 950 XL was the same size as the 1520 but with an even bigger screen crammed in there. What I'm trying to say is. There is a big chance that you will love a big phone once you've used it for one day. That's what it took for me, one day. Never will I get anything smaller than a phablet.
  • Since you can adjust the text size on L950XL, you would probably feel like having a L1520 while the physical size is smaller and more manageable.
  • Here. Here. As a proud Yellow 1520 user for nearly 2 years, I just hate using smaller sized phones. I do have a 640 XL after my 1520's screen cracked while in Rome for a vacation. Anyhow, the 950XL would surely be my next phone. As for my 1520, its time to be reunited with your great grand father, my very first Nokia 3310. Hahaha
  • Just for an opposing viewpoint, I traded up to a 1520 from a 1020.  I liked the screen at first, but over time I have gotten very tired of it being so big and unwieldly.  I always feel like when I sit down I must pull it out of my pocket, because I don't want to flex it. I recently picked up the 640 when it was $70 just to try going back to a smaller phone.  I love it, though I dearly miss all the horsepower.  AMAZING phone for under a hundred though!  I plean to get the 850... I like the size better, I like the button layout better, and the camera should be the same.  I wish it had the fastest processor, but everything else is perfect.  I was crushed back when they said the wireless charging would only be built into the XL.... thank goodness they changed their minds.
  • I gave the 920 to my girl for a day and they stole it from her at work. ( Greek too ) It's been almost a year since and still love the 920 and feel super sad we don't own it anymore x.x Got a 930 when I gave it to her. Just got her the 640 xl and it's such a wonderful device to surf from etc that I am jealous now :P
    Unfortunately my 930 is so good that I think I'll wait for the next flagship phones to upgrade.. And hopefully get a job again by then! Mi gamiso...
  • Καλά, δουλειές τέλος.. Πλέον, λεφτούλι το λεφτούλι, μέχρι να γεμίσει το σακούλι ... Και μένα με βλέπω για το 950xl , σε κανα χρονο...
  • The 1520 feels too large for the first 48 hours of ownership.  After that, you get so comfortable with it, that anything smaller is now too small.  Once you have a 6" display, there is no going back.  :)
  • Question out of curiosity... The 950XL is 5.7" rather than 6". Do you think you'll be disappointed?
  • That's a good question.  I find that the 0.3" jump from Lumia 920 (4.5") to Samsung ATIV S (4.8") is strongly noticable, but when we're talking 5.7" to 6", that 0.3" increase has less of an impact.  I'm sure that unless I was holding a 1520 in one hand and a 950 XL in the other, I probably wouldn't notice.  When I'm passing by Toronto tomorrow, I'll stop in at the MS store and see if they have the 950 XL on display, then compare with my 1520.
  • Yes, MS store at Eaton Centre has both phones on display.
  • I took my 1520 to the store today & held it with the 950XL. I love the size of XL. It's much more manageble and light. I did not feel like I was losing anything in screen size. Seems like  good phone. Did not wow me but I can live with it. If the camera is as good as they say it is, then it might be worth it for me.  They did not have the 950 on display. Would like to check that out as well before I buy one of these bad boys:-). My 1520 screen died in 14 months. I was hoping it would last until the so called Surface phone shows up next year. Tuff luck...
  • No! Lost my Lumia 1520 and my insurance company gave me a phone of 'similar' value, the Note 4. So the screen size is just what I now have.
  • Well there is seeing as you will be gettng the 950XL which is 5.7" :-P But yeah I feel the same way - love my L1520
  • I also have a L920 and will be getting the L950 because the XL is just a little too big for me.
  • Thinking the same thing.  The 640 showed me 5" is perfect, but the larger 640 XL was a little too big.  So I'm planning on the 950 myself as well.
  • I agree. I have the 1520 and the 930 and I love both but after awhile using the 1520 it gets tiresome. Especially when I'm driving or trying to type fast. 5" is really perfect but 5.7" his feel better then 6"
  • Maybe don't handle your phone when driving?
  • Totally agree. Loved the 1520 but after cracking the screen and buying a 830 5in is definitely the sweet spot.
  • Actually l950xl is more close to l640, than l640xl in size
  • The 640 XL and 950 XL have exactly the same screen size.
  • Actually l950xl is more close to l640 than l640xl in size
  • 950 XL and 640 XL have exactly the same display size. 950 and 640 have very similar display sizes.
  • I think maybe they mean in overall dimensions. That wouldn't suprise me. The 640 is bigger than it could be, which makes sense considering the price. OTH the 950 and 950 XL being flagship phones and costing hundreds more allow for greater engineering and materials to shrink everything down to more compact dimensions even with the increase in screen size. I held an iPhone 6 Plus today and it felt about the same as my 640 in hand despite the bigger screen. The regular iphone 6 confirmed what I already knew. I really want a lumia 640 level phone with a 4.5-4.7 inch screen. Or a more compact 5 incher for ~$100. I'm holding my breath on that one, lol.
  • Same here buddy. I also own a L920 for 2.5 years now its time to replace but I will keep my opinion till i get a hands on both the devices who knows less bezels on XL might win the battle against 950.. :P
  • Γεια σου! (I hope that was right lol) It feels awesome. IMHO it is not feeling too big and is super light. the layout and curved back make it feel good in the hand. I'm very impressed.bty, I love Crete!
  • I am super glad that your greek are in good shape. And i am really happy that the phone feels good in use. I hope i can get that phone when its price is lower because it seems to be a pretty much awesome phone (also love the design of the  950xl than the 950). Thank you very much for answering me this fast. Have a happy day/afternoon/night (dont know your timezone)
  • I've got a L1520 and a Samsung Galaxy s6 edge+ can't go back to small screens u get used 2 the size had the s6 edge before and hated the screen compared to the L1520
  • I played with the 950 XL today at a Microsoft kiosk. It feels slightly wider than my iPhone 6. Very nice device! I like it a lot! I will be buying it in a few months hopefully.  
  • If you can get your hands on a 640xl, it is noticeably smaller.  I checked out the 950xl in a MS store today and compared it to my 640xl. It is about 7mm shorter and 3mm narrower with the same screen size. It is also slightly thinner and feels better in the hand.  The size difference sounds fairly small, but it is noticeable.  If you can try holding the 640xl and think you can handle the size, the 950xl will be better. I also should note that after having many windows phones, the 640xl was the first I've had without capacitive buttons. Thought I would dislike it (got the phone just to test Windows Mobile 10). I love the fact that I don't hit those buttons by accident. Don't want to go back.  
  • Totally agree with your take on on-screen buttons.  I thought its a bad idea but after using a 640 for a while now. I dont want capacitive buttons anymore.  No more accidents and fullscreen vids look better without the lit up capacitive buttons. 
  • @Alex. It is much lighter than 920, and width still feels the same because 920 had heft and was wide to begin with. My wife will be buying the smaller 950, as she doesn't care much about the processor and RAM difference. Plus she has mini hands, short fingers. lol.
  • I have seen the 640XL in person but have yet to see the 950XL. So i just did a quick comparison on microsoft store website of 950XL to 640XL ( i threw the 950 in there for comparison also) As you can see the 950XL is thinner, narrower and less tall than the 640XL but yet it has the same size screen - 5.7" http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/mobile/phones/compare/?action=productcomp... I felt the 640XL was a big phone but at the time i saw it didnt feel too big - and i am currently using the 808 with its 4" screen and its bulk (and im also using a lumia 520)  
  • Does anyone know when Win 10 MOS be available for existing phones 520/920/1020/1050 US and other countries.
  • But yeah... This beast is lightning fast... I can surely swap my spare Lumia 535 for this XL. Right now using Lumia 1320 cuz I love big screen. ;)
    I was planning to get a gopro but now... XL!
    Long live Lumia!
  • I wonder when will wc look closer to wl950 camera
  • It's exactly the same camera.
  • But, Will the processor make any difference? I guess the resultant image will be the same, but in terms of speed?
  • The specifications of both phones are good, I can't see the 950 being noticeably slower in real world usage - I want to see after the public build is out for pre-win 10 devices if the 950/950XL camera is actually noticeably quicker than the 1520 and 930 in real world use.
  • It's a smaller device with a smaller battery, so likely not.
  • This is a valid concern for shot to shot performance i think. Also i now think that its possible the LED flash may have been moved around due to the liquid cooling for the 950XL processor that the 950 does not have.... Hvaing the flash in slightly differnet places also means to me that resulting images will have to be processed differently,no?
  • I didn't see anywhere that said only one would have liquid cooling. I believe they both do. The very small difference in the location of the flash would make a small difference in lighting on your subject. As for processing speed, we have to look at the difference between the 810 and the 808. The difference is two cores, I believe both CPUs are clocked the same. So the question is, can images be processed over four cores at once? It's possible that this has been built into W10, but it seems like that wouldn't make sense for such a small task. I would think that processing would only occur on one core. Therefore, since you will have at least one core for processing on either phone, you should see the same processing time.
  • see link from Daniel - i saw this and then saw it being corroborated by other sites also https://twitter.com/Daniel_Rubino/status/652162707852910593 the 810 is clocked at 2000MHz (2GHz) and the 808 at 1800MHz(1.8GHz) I'll be interested in seeing head to head comparisons of actual performance of the 950 to the 950XL for not just the camera performance but overall device performance.
  • So the Lumia 950 XL "has the best camera Microsoft has ever created"?
    What an easy target!
    Microsoft (itself) has so far only launched the Lumia 535, 640 and 640 XL, which cannot really count as serious camera benchmarks...
  • You obviously haven't used a 640xl the camera in that is amazing for the price of the phone.
  • I'm sure they have some Finnish Nokia Denim-grade engineers working on it as well! They did wonders with the 1520/930 imaging...like ridiculously good. The 808 as well, althogh it was Symbian. Hope the DNA is still alive and well.
  • That's a valid conclusion. However, based on the fact that these devices were created by the same Nokia teams behind 1020, 930, and 808, I would guess that this camera is pretty great. Granted, their paychecks now come from MSFT instead of Nokia, but they're still the same people.
  • What about Lumia 950 and 550? How are they? Posted via my Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo which isn't as much abandoned as any Windows Phone on the Windows Central App for Android
  • 950 has the same camera as 950 XL. 550 will be a budget device, and camera performance probably won't be notable.
  • I just came from spending an hour manhandling the 950 XL. Camera speed will shock people. Both the pocket to picture and shot to shot speeds are lightning fast. Super slim and light device too. Renders do not do the device justice. It's way smaller than the 640XL. Easily pocketable.
  • This is good news, I was always nervous that Microsoft wouldn't be able to figure out the super speed from pocket to picture that the Iphone excels in. I get that Nokia/Windows phones generally have been able to take better photos than the Iphones, but at painstaking speeds sometimes. My L920 for example takes like TWO MINUTES to go from lockscreen to actually taking a picture that's in focus. Granted, I'm running the W10Mobile TP, so it's probably slower than the final build will be for windows 10 mobile.
  • doe it have optical zooM?
  • DUDE I AM SOOOOOOOO EXCITED FOR THE XL! CANT WAIT FOR NOVEMBER!!!!!
  • Seems very powerful..
  • It's interesting that the algorithms used here are all brand new for this device. They spent a lot of time making this one and seem to be very proud. We'll have to wait and see, but it looks great.
  • Feels awesome, super premium... https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=17B334BAA289D2C2!100966&authkey=!AFFI2q8m7cLzAeM&v=3&ithint=photo%2cjpg
  • You people living in the US have got it so good man! (I'm super jealous right now lol) Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I feel you Verma sahib. Rest assured. You will love it once you get your hands on one.
  • Did you took this image by using L950/950XL? its super sharp! I just waiting successor of L1020.
  • No, I used my Icon to take that image of the 950XL in camera mode. The Icon has a great camera and so does the L1020 but the 950XL is in another league. It is blazing fast and very sharp. I tested it while move my hand taking a picture of a moving object and it was still super sharp. I believe it is the best camera ever put in a smartphone. Period! And yes I well switch carriers for it if I have to.
  • This made me laugh..... you just reminded me of all jimmy kimmels videos on apple fans accepting anything. if you read the info on the pic you would have noticed its a 929.
  • Thanks for posting that shot! Your photo makes the phone look terrific "in the wild".
  • is there a reason why the 950 isnt on the MS website?
  • It's only ont the ATT site for now as coming soon.
  • They did not have any 950's in the MS store onlt two 950XL's. My impressions are on hold until I see the 950,   I'll just say though the 640XL als takes damn good pics at kless than half the price.  
  • I think at this point, the image quality from any decent phone has hit the point (for me personally) where there's not going to be a wow factor for a while to come. A lot of phones (iPhones, Samsung phones, Sony's, and phones like the 930 and 1520) have great cameras these days - I think unless you're really into taking photos the camera aren't enough any more to be a huge selling point. I guess things like 4K video will be new to the 950 though? And that's pretty cool and brings it up to par with the iPhone and others in terms of video - Not to mention all the other awesome things about the 950 and 950 XL
  • 930 has 4K video. Fuck the iPhone.
  • Watch the video and you will be astonished at the level of detail when zooming in!
  • This! It is a good thing, everybody will start to take and post good quality photos moving forward as devices' cameras are getting to a point where they produce good/excellent photos. Gone are the days of poor photos or lousy videos.
  • Did you even watch the video?  The  MAIN POINT they were making throughout is that  it isn't true that smartphone imaging has gotten as good as it's going to get &  furthermore that there is a very noticeable difference in the quality of the images captured by the 950s. The amount of detail in those shots was staggering, especially compared to what the S6 produced. The Lumias have also had 4k for over a year now so no they're not being brought "up to par" Lol. Perhaps you're being ironic?
  • I think if you're cropping photos, or shooting in low light, there is still a lot of progress to be made from what most users have to put up with. The 950s may help on those fronts.
  • 950/XL seriously makes the iPhone and Galaxy feel like yesteryears Doro
  • it's interesting that they rewrote the camera app again, and a little confusing. I was under the impression the rewrite that happened when denim came out would have carried through to win10, since the camera versions for both phone and tablet seemed identical. I've noticed some minor icon changes in the latest build, but no real functional difference. Is this a completely new app, or just a new backend?
  • Could just be the processing that occurs after the image is taken? So the sensor still takes in the same light as it would have before, but the processing of that data has changed, I assume
  • Well, the Windows Camera app for Windows 10 is new, since it was written for the universal platform. It was just made to look a lot like the old one. But you can see it under settings, that it isn't quite the same. Having said that, it sounds like they also rewrote the image processing algorithms and those can be separate from the UI that you see when using the app. Part of these algorithms will have to be written specifically to handle the hardware in the 950 series, as it won't be all devices that have the triple flash and characteristics of the sensor.
  • Soo goood Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • what about the front camera? are you disappointed about the front camera coz it is 5 mpx. It could be 8mpx. And are you satisfied with front camera performance considering the selfies?
  • While I couldn't really tell how great the front camera was in my brief time with the 950 XL, I don't think 5 MP is too few. More pixels are generally helpful for zoom, and front camera pictures are usually taken from arm's length. I didn't compare the 950 XL to my 640 front camera, so I'm not sure how improved it is.
  • Well you have praised the Galaxy Edge camera. I am hoping to see a side by side review soon. iPhone 6S, Samsung Galaxy Edge and Lumia 950XL
  • am I the only one who noticed the "Heart/Favorite" button in the photos app at 2:18?? its not in current app version right?
    https://youtu.be/1pPMYFOy3No?t=2m18s
  • Main camera: 20.0 MP Camera Focus Type: Auto focus with two-stage capture key  Camera optics: 6-lens optics  Stabilization: Optical image stabilization  Oversampling: Yes  Sensor size: 1/2.4 inch  Camera F number/aperture: f/1.9  Camera focal length: 26 mm Camera Flash Type: Natural flash  Camera features: Backside-illuminated image sensor, PureView, True 16:9 sensor, Fast Focus, High resolution zoom Camera minimum focus range: 10 cm Looks like they went 16:9 on the sensor? saw it on the MS au site in specs  
  • Any sort of focus aids?  Such as phase detection autofocus?  Lasers?  Etc.
  • If you watch the video from OneTechStop, the Lumia rep mentions that the 950/950 XL has PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) right at the end of the video. http://www.onetechstop.net/2015/10/video-lumia-950-950xl-camera-hands-on/  
  • Neat, thanks for the tip, should be quicker to focus too Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Yeaah. Seems really awesome this camera. I hope it will beat every other smartphone's cameras and show us that Nokia Imaging is still alive! I'm very very happy to see more interest in living images! So we can see them on W10 and share as video! So nice!
  • Can it do slow motion video? If so, at what fps?
  • Not yet. Edit: Unless with a third party app.
  • Agreed, looks like the 5th generation optical image stabilizer, the RGB flash, and the ISO the Lumia 950XL uses was not ready for McLaren release, this definitely looks much more advanced tech than the one on the Lumia 1020.  Finally Lumia 1020 owners can get a worthy upgrade.
  • Exactly!  I have a 1020, and the ONLY reason I have yet to look at another phone is the camera.  Once you have a camera like that, you can't go backwards.   This, the 950/950XL, looks VERY promising.
  • Very true...
  • You really can't go back after the 1020. Mine died a month ago and I am using a 640 as a stop-gap phone and good god it feels like I am taking pictures with a potato after using the 1020 for 2 years
  • "Taking pictures with a potato".. lol!"
  • Horrible day at work then came home and read 'like taking pictures with a potato'" and laughed like a maniac. Thanks for making good my day.
  • I'm in the same position, lost my 1020 in a river recently :-(  And have a 640 as a temporary one, which I think is fantastic for the price, but you're right, taking photos with a potato sums it up perfectly.  A fast potato at least though :-)
  • As a current 1020 user, am I so excited about a new phone with a faster camera.  I love my 1020 but it is hard to get a shot of something quickly.
  • Until I saw this demo I was going to pass. Now I'm sold and have to decide 950 or 950 XL. Very excited!
  • will these algorithms come to all phones with win mobile 10?
  • Dan when we spoke you werent to thrilled with the lumia 950 camera, and still thought the S6 surpassed it, still think the same way?
  • This must be why they have dropped all those old lenses. they weren't up to scratch for the new cameras with all their updated goodness. I'm hoping that the next Panorama will be better than the old one.....
  • But are the pictures CLEARLY superior to any of the competition?  And can I get the same zoom-in detail that I can get with my 1020?
  • But does it have the 4 HAAC microphones like its predecessors?
  • It was hard to find that info out but everyone just assumed it did.
  • I guess I'll wait and see when I record a concert with it. My Lumia 830 has gotten me 165k views on YouTube. Excellent sound quality
  • It's like the forgotten feature, but as someone who goes to a lot of concerts and  likes shooting some video at them, the HAAC mics are literally unbeatable.  Nothings distorted or blown out, extremley clear and good response throughout the frequency range.  As far I know, no other phone even comes close to the audio quality on modern lumias.  And on my Icon, paired with 2k video recording, it's an unbeatable concert video camera
  • microsoft preorder page shows 4 HAAC mics, did not say it records DD+
  • I didn't know that the sound is good too (I have 1020 but don't go to concerts much:) - best photos, best videos, best sound - for less money (and not to mention other goodies) - and people still not buying it ? I'll never understand
  • You can have best features but if no one knows about it, still won't sell.
  • People want the apps and services they're familiar with. Also MS advertising is pretty poor.
  • Link for science?
  • Look up mrshamoozoo on YouTube. You'll find me
  • Would you be so kind as to provide a link to that YouTube video, I would like to hear the audio quality.
  • Look up mrshamoozoo on YouTube
  • Saw your channel on YouTube. Man was I blown away - I just couldn't believe that the sound came from a lumia 830. Even 100$ dedicated microphones crap out in concerts.
  • Official specs list it as "Lumia Rich Recording with 4 microphones" so it's assumed that the HAAC is a part of the "Lumia Rich Recording". At least.. that's what I'm assuming.
  • yeah, Rich Recording is their marketing term; HAAC is the technical aspect.
  • Daniel, quick question: Do we have the DNG capturing in Windows Camera in Insider Preview installed on L930/Icon/1520/830 ?
  • Actually it does. :) You can check it out on the product specifications page. https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co...
  • Looks like it does in the photos and earlier renders.
  • Yes
  • That's for me the most important thing and no one is talking about it. My Lumia 1520 is unmatched in sound quality recording concerts and I don't want it to change in the new devices.
  • TBH, the reason is, it's so common now for high-end Lumias people looked at me oddly. It's like asking if the phone had a display.
  • Haha that's hilarious and somewhat reassuring. Hopefully the 950 has 'em too.
  • It does have 4 HAAC mics, based on the specs sheet on the microsoft website. :D
  • No Panorama or slo-mo?  Major fail.  Microsoft simply is unable to get its act together.  Period.  And, as I have said time and time again, their camera can't just "seem" to be better.  It's got to be SO obvious that it beats the best Android and best iPhone pictures that's it's not a competition.  Microsoft fails again.
  • So get an iPhone or Android. Problem solved. What's the big deal?
  • Uh nice rhetorical question.
  • Lol
