The latest Microsoft Lumia 950 UK price cut now makes the device cheaper than a OnePlus 3 or Huawei P9.

Mobile Phones Direct now has the device for just £289, including free delivery. Considering the hardware packed inside, this is a great price for anyone still supporting the Windows 10 Mobile team.

Both the Lumia 950 and 950Xl have already received big price cuts by Microsoft, with 17% slashed off retail back in June. This included a free Display Dock, allowing buyers to take advantage of the Continuum feature. The dock alone is worth £79.99.

Microsoft Lumia 950 UK price cut – Is this the end?

The Lumia 950 and 950Xl never reached the expectations Microsoft wanted, with Windows 10 Mobile proving to be a flop once again despite being a strong operating system with lots of potential. A stuttered release followed by several bugs on launch hampered the experience for many, while the lack of apps has continued to be a major struggle for the platform.

Market share continues to drop year-on-year, with the current UK figure dropping under 5% this June. We haven’t seen Windows Mobile suffer this badly since October 2012, but at least in that instance Microsoft was busy gaining ground and throwing money into the sector.
