Work on a Microsoft Office document, browse the Internet or stream movies for your kids. Plus, you can use your phone independently to take a call or send a text message while you continue to work on the bigger screen. Get the Microsoft Office and Outlook experiences on your mobile device, or use Office 365 with Microsoft Display Dock to unleash the power of editing features on a bigger screen for a PC-like experience too.

So you can use your device in 2 way. Both devices are running different Windows 10 instances for bigger screen as well as for Lumia devices itself.

So I can edit my files in PC and pick up the call at the same time using Microsoft Display DOC with these flagship devices.
