If you were waiting for a great sale to give the Windows powered smartphones a try, the Microsoft store is holding one right now that gives you two great phones for the price of one. If you put down $649 for an unlocked Lumia 950 XL Microsoft will throw in an unlocked Lumia 950 for absolutely nothing. Shipping is free and you get a few extra perks like a free year of Office 360.
Here is how it works:
- Go to this link and add the Lumia 950 XL to your cart: Microsoft Lumia 950 XL
- Then add the Lumia 950 to your cart: Microsoft Lumia 950
- Head to Checkout and you should see the discount
4. Come back here and say “Thanks Techaeris!”
There is no word on how long this sale will last but I’m sure supplies are not infinite despite how few of these Microsoft has sold. “But Mike” you may be saying “Are these phones any good?” Excellent question! Our own Alex Hernandez took the 950 and a few of the available accessories for a spin a while back and was impressed overall with the capable but imperfect device that has only improved since then. You can and should read his Lumia 950 Review.
Microsoft has been quiet about their plans for Windows phone and rumors are swirling around an upcoming Surface Phone to be announced later this year or early 2017. There are also interesting developments as Microsoft and Google have been establishing a friendlier co-existence lately and that has led many to believe that Google may finally be bringing a suite of their apps to the troubled Windows Phone ecosystem. That has all yet to see any official announcements but even without Google, Microsoft has very compelling hardware that is definitely worth a try.
