All well and good. So-called new World phone 850, is neither beautiful nor more ugly than other phones in the segment or made by other manufacturers. Microsoft continues its old policy with its phones. A be good? A be bad? Only final consumers will decide.

Unless your just bashing for the hell of it.....
Yet another nail in Windows Phone coffin... Hehehehehehe
This WP will FAIL as the other 150 handsets Before.

Microsoft makes no sense. This device should be paired with Snap 652. The screen should be 5" HD Amoled. The built in memory should be 32GB.
Come on MIcrosoft, don't you have someone to make your line-up already? Its been 6 years now and your line up is a mess.

I still ultimately went back to android. More complete selection of apps and the apps are much more up to date, unlike their counterparts on wp.

Design is clean and beautifull, make the same phone, smaller with 5,2" FHD display and Android, I will buy it. ;-)
Yet another enormous phone, that looks no different to the last dozen models and what the competition is offering.
Apple is starting to discover the smartphone / tablet market is saturated, so why does MS think they can grab a share.
I happen to like WP 10 but not big phones, they,re just not very practical!
MS- Why don't you make a high end phone with manageable dimensions, a 4 to 4.5 inch screen is practical !

Hope this will not be just rumors. I like Microsoft phones because of their unique OS. And android phones are such a main stream already it doesn't make me feel unique
It's all fun and games until one starts to use the W10 interface. Windows 10 is full of stupid bugs, literally everywhere, all because Microsoft fired the Windows 10 phone development team by mistake simply because the department name had nothing to do with the job those people were actually doing. A friend of mine, a certified Microsoft phone tester uses the Lumia 950 and is all but happy with it. It's expensive and not really up to par with similarly priced Androids just because of the buggy interface.
regs, 03 Feb 2016Back cover makes it look like ultra budget. They could use some better materials.Plastic or polycarbonate is better than metal/glass/aluminium as it provides better grip, even when using gloves. Also, metal bends and remains that way. Plastic either cracks or returns to its original form.
