The Microsoft Lumia 950/950 Xl has not had the best of runs and particularly here in Ireland I would love to see the actual sales figures for both devices. Price cuts and bundling a free dock may have given the device some traction but as a whole Windows Phone is considered dead here in Ireland like it or not and thats coming from someone who has been an avid user over the years but timely updates and the app gap that keeps getting bigger is two factors as to why the market share is dropping Year on Year then to add in the waiting game,by that I mean for users that had the 1520/930 for example had a long wait and current users of the 9 series now seek a familiar pattern before they get their hands on a new flagship.. Given you could not really call the 9 series  flagships due to cheap build quality they are fast phones,I have both and of course the camera is good but thats just not enough for users these days..

Anyhow moving forward there is another 50 euros taken off the 950 XL and it seems the rest of the Lumia portfolio is missing out on the Black Friday treatment but they have had several price cuts over the last year and it probably wont be long before we see them vanish…This is a limited offer which is ironically how Microsoft operate in general when it comes to mobile…
