Big-G, 21 Jul 2016Skype will only support Windows 10 Mobile and will drop support for Windows Phone 8.1 and 8 st... moreI think all these dramas are only for one reason. They need everyone in windows 10. As free pc upgrade is going to end earlier they forced users and now this. And windows phones are being neglected.
I would like to share my experience wiht Lumia 950 after two weeks including some "issues" - maybe you find it helpful.
I considered to buy an android phone, but after bad experience I gave a chance to Lumia 950. Windows 10 runs smoothly, display is perfect, however there was mentioned some issues.
It gets hot during use
It is matter of settings. I disabled all applications (except Messaging and some others) to run in background and it really helps. Phone is getting hot, but after 10 minutes and more of browisng. But notthing you can't bear.
Unable to connect wi-fi
I experience this, however maybe it is issue with battery saver. When I turned off battery saver, almost immediately I connect to wi-fi.
Only once - supposed Edge browser has a problem with page display and phone restarted.
Lack of applications
Yes, this can be frustrating. However, there is always free application you need but you can choose only from one or two available (on Android you have tens of alternatives). Some apps are not available and you have to use web version.
Overall opinion - great phone, price is now more fair (you can get it for under 300 E), runs smoothly, no problem with contact transfer from android, and also camera is great.
Skype will only support Windows 10 Mobile and will drop support for Windows Phone 8.1 and 8 starting October 2016.Its a worst Microsoft dutch it's own software for it's own plaform.Windows 8.1 is not as old to Retire apps support it's so pathetic Microsoft that why Windows phone market share is in that position.You are really not serious about your Mobile segments.
user, 21 Jul 2016android phone is your home property ?.I am telling you the truth.You don't know anything about Smartphone Platform it's Life cycle.Except "REMEMBER !!!!!, android OS new (free) update getting in google NEXUS phones only , not any other brand of phones. (other brand of phones are cheating to the people in OS updating)"But listen All Nexus devices also have some life spam after certain period of time No update available for older Nexus devices.Acording to you 1st Nesus still getting current Android update how funny.It seams that you are drunk,1st educate yourself before committing over any other.
[deleted post]Dear you don't know any thing about Android phone and Android phone lifecycle.First learn then comment over Android phone.
[deleted post]REMEMBER !!!!!, android OS new (free) updating in google NEXUS phones only , not any other brand of phones.What nonsense you are posting again and again.If you don't have any idea.Then Firstly go and grab it.Otherwise your little knowledge will dump you in very embarrassing conditions.
[deleted post]No it's not true Nexus devices will get three year minimum update,and what about Moto devices,Samsung Note Series,Android One,One Plus One,Samsung Galaxy Series,HTC One 8 (2014),HTC One 9 (2015),Sony Experia Z Series.These all series at present Running with Current Android version M Update and most of them will get N update also.Moto G (2013) start with Andrid Jellybean now it's running over L update it's a last update for Moto G (2013).Please don't spread rumors.Firstly update your self then weight your reviews.

I don't know why but every time ... moreThen all in all iPhone is the best 2013 5s still getting update and will get more updates in future.Android phone having limitations after Nexus only few devices get regular Android update but not more than 2 years.I agree very few person stick to its older phone for more than 2 years and they are looking for the new devices.
Big-G, 18 Jul 2016But Microsoft stop updating Windows 8.1 no update since long time for Lumia 1320 and 925.There is an article in internet "from photon to the future." You can read the whole story of microsoft that how they made windows phone a me**. Continuity in a single thing is not the part of microsoft.
Big-G, 18 Jul 2016But Microsoft stop updating Windows 8.1 no update since long time for Lumia 1320 and 925.They are only working on windows 10 os. They left behind 8.1. I don't know why but every time they left most of their most of previous smartphones. Earlier they released new 7.1 phone. After six month they released 8.0 and told that no win7 phone can be upgradable to 8.0. Then released 7.5 by adding some features of 8. Now they left 8.1. After some month they are going to leave win10.

If you ask me to why then Microsoft os releasing updates? At the time of releasing win10 to other hardware manufacturers, they sign a contract to support them for a definite time. Once that time end they can go on their way.
Shashwat.newk1995, 17 Jul 2016Yes, like what they did with windows 8.1, windows 7.5 and other earlier versions.
