As one can easily notice in the above Table, features and specs wise Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL offer much more as compared to Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5S.

While Nexus 6P boasts of a metallic unibody, design wise Lumia 950 XL looks better in leaked press images. Same can be said for Nexus 5X (Polycarbonate) and Lumia 950.

In fact it doesn’t look like a fair fight between Nexus 5S and Lumia 950 at all, given Lumia 950 has a much better display, higher RAM, much better camera and unique features like Continuum for Phones, Iris Scanner, Wireless charging, Glance Screen, HAAC recording etc going for it.

Nexus 6P has a 8 MP FFC as compared to 5 MP FFC of Lumia 950 XL, but surprisingly offers only 720p video capture. Its rear camera is only 12.3 MP and lacks OIS. In comparison Lumia 950 XL will boast of a 20 MP rear camera with improved OIS. Lumia 950 XL also brings Continuum for Phones support, Iris Scanner (Fingerprint scanner on Nexus 6P), Wireless charging, some cool features missing from Nexus 6P.

While the USP for the Nexus range has been its pricing, as per the recent leaks Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are not going to be too pricey either and when it comes to 32 GB models pricing, it is closer battle for both Nexus 6P and Lumia 950 XL.

Not to forget that Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL offer expandable storage and removable Battery, two options missing from both Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.

  • The camera of the 950/950XL is mind blowing.

  • JB_Gator

    Considering the pricing it may make more sense to compare the 950 (not the xl ) to the 6P.

  • MegamaN

    I was rooting for the 950 XL, mainly for it being thinner than my 1520.
    Yet, we need to see how the SD 810 fares, I am curious about the heat.

    The price is what makes everything crazy. I wouldn’t mind getting it, like the 1520, in payments.

    • Kamal

      Lumia 950 XL may be slightly on higher side or equal in terms of launch pricing when compared to Lumia 1520. It’s quite good pricing when you compare it to other flagships in market.(Nexus is still an exception as Google always wanted it to be like that).
