This post is a continuation of the week-long series, Windows VS iOS VS Android. This post covers special features on the platforms:

Windows 10:

Windows 10 Mobile has 2 special features: Continium and Windows Hello

Continium:

Microsoft-Display-Dock-03

Continum turns your smartphone into a full fledged computer. Using a display adapter, you connect a monitor to get a Windows 10-Like experience. It’s not exactly the same because it can only run ARM apps, not X86 apps.

Windows Hello

Lumia_950XL_White_AngleRight_DSIM

This feature allows you to unlock your phone with a scan of your retina. According to Microsoft, even your twin couldn’t fool it.

These two features are nice, however they require specific flagships to make any use of them.
