    And you didn’t mention that Lumia 950 and 950 XL have also an “Iris Scanner” a part of “Windows Hello” (Iris Scanner, Face Recognition, Fingerprint Scanner) authentication security just like Apple iPhone “Touch ID’s” “Fingerprint Sensor”. Iris Scanner can also work even wearing sunglasses in the dark. P30,200 without Microsoft Display Dock for Continuum Support while P33,200 with Display Dock.
