hi, I feel that Microsoft is a trusted brand/product (software)for quite sometimes now on the otherhand the device they've created first-as far as I know is-the x-box then fast forward-Smartphones like this 2 I admit even not in my hands just looking on it and watch it from youtube i feel most of us will switch to Lumia 950 like me
KK 1512, 11 Oct 2015Touch screen issue ?? Brother, in which windows phone did u hear the issue with touch. Till i ... moreSince everytime. 5,2'' is a low size phablet with little difference to 5,7''. Phone is up to 4,9''. With 4,7'' of Galaxy Alpha and iPhone being ideal. Lumia 950 is 145x73, so not a pocket device.
If you talks about pinkish iPhone then yes, iOS has much more and much more functional apps than Windows that lacks functional apps even in basic categories. Yet iOS itself has huge lack of tablet apps. Android is still miles ahead. And still will be simply because has more developers, as Android most popular among geeks.

Till i ... moreRightly said, these phs are awesome, 5.2 & 5.7 are perfect sizes(just like the new Nexus). USB C is simply Brilliant! Once Project Astoria comes out, would love to grab the 950xl!!
I would have to go with not, Being only available to at@t in the US. The hardware looks nice, great features but failed before release, and yes I know you can buy it out right but only for tmo, what about sprint and verizon, to bad.
Sorry MS I gave a Thumbs Down to the 550 for not fitting it with USB C!
Stay calm, this is business-grade phone. When a flagship comes, it wont be on this level.
These are the ugliest and most poorly styled windows phones released in recent years. MSFT have chosen a basic shape derived from a budget handset to sell their new flagships and ignored all the great industrial design developed by Nokia under the Fabula design language. These look cheap, lack finesse and certainly have no inherent wow factor people expect and demand in a flagship device. From and Industrial design standpoint MSFT have rejected everything windows phone stood for in these designs and coopted a very basic android design aesthetic.
Once Project Astoria is released in full swing this phone will become the best smartphone till date. iOS speed with lots of apps at nearly two third the price. Definitely hot.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2015i dont care it hot or not... but did they fix the touch screen issue ?Touch screen issue ?? Brother, in which windows phone did u hear the issue with touch. Till i know, touch issue was only in Lumia 535, which was easily resolved through an update. & 950/950 xl are flagship devices & Microsoft has packed all the premium features in them.

regs, 11 Oct 2015Not for all. Too big, too expensive, too little apps. Doesn't worth it. And too much attention... morefor serious users, since when 5.2" is big? too little useless apps! so a $1000 pink phone is worth it?! at least it's something useful unlike 3D touch and heart rate thingy & wooden back covers! 950 & 950XL are one of the best phones out there & i'm an Android user, not a WP fan!
Hell yeah! Tired of my HTC One, waiting for India launch so I can go back to WP platform :)
Alien, 11 Oct 2015So where are we supposed to vote??Clicking on the word "Hot" or "Not"
i dont care it hot or not... but did they fix the touch screen issue ?
3ngin33r, 11 Oct 2015They should have gone with the 930/830 like design but they went with the 640 like design whic... moreLumia 830 was nice. Still with distinctive Lumia front panel. But 930 already looked like 950. Just a boring box.
Not for all. Too big, too expensive, too little apps. Doesn't worth it. And too much attention to Continuum. Pretty much useless feature.
