The Continuum display dock is a knock-out feature that can bring sparkles on your eyes.  It actually brings the handset into another level of portability.  With the dock, Lumia 950 can be easily converted into a mini and more portable version of Windows 10 PC.

On the other hand, Windows Hello can let you easily access your Lumia without inputting long passwords. Easily access your device through fingerprint scanning and according to Microsoft, they face and iris scanning features will soon follow.


Lumia 950 can be fetched at the price of $549 by next month (November).
