In June, Microsoft permanently cut the price of its Lumia 950 and 950 XL by 17% in the UK, reducing them to £319.99 and £399.99 respectively. The prices of both Windows 10 Mobile flagships has been falling since before they even went on sale there last December; and even after the Microsoft Store's recent reductions, their prices have dropped further elsewhere in the UK.
The Lumia 950 XL has been available for around £360 from Amazon and Carphone Warehouse in recent weeks - but you can now get it for even less.
Ebuyer is currently selling the Lumia 950 XL in black for just £336.20 - that's £63.79 (16%) below the Microsoft Store price, and £23.79 (7%) less than Amazon and Carphone Warehouse. However, the white model is priced at £410 at Ebuyer, so if you'd prefer that version, you're better off shopping elsewhere.
The Lumia 950 XL's key specs include:
- 5.7-inch AMOLED with Quad HD (2560x1440px) resolution
- Octa-core 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB onboard storage (plus microSD card slot)
- 20MP PureView rear camera with auto focus, 6-lens optics, triple-LED flash, optical image stabilization and 4K video recording at 30fps
- 5MP front-facing camera with wide-angle lens and 1080p video recording
- Bluetooth 4.1
- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with Wi-Fi Direct support
- Qi wireless charging
- 3340mAh battery
- USB 3.1 port with Type-C connector
- 151.9 x 78.4 x 8.3mm; 165g
The device also supports the PC-like Continuum mode in Windows 10 Mobile, allowing owners to use a mouse and keyboard with the device when connected to a larger display, via an external Display Dock accessory, which costs around £80.
Over in the US last week, Microsoft cut the price of the Lumia 950 XL by $200, and that of the Lumia 950 by $150, in its first permanent price reductions since the devices launched there last year.
