I had many phones. I start with the Windows phones with low cost Lumia 520. It was the first "smart" phone that actually worked even after a year. All my Android phones slow down significantly after that time. The latest phone I have bought is Lumia 950. I don't bother to switch off WIFI, LTE, navigation, ... and the battery last whole day. It may get worm on prolonged use but I have plastic protection around it and this is expected. The updates are made in the background and the phone is functional at all time. Even Windows updates notify user for restart only. Android devices make updates twice a week for 20+ apps I don't need and they become unresponsive during the update process (hours of frustration).
Windows phone has all apps that I need out of the box therefore only Microsoft and its affiliates can track my communication but not a next door boy with too much spare time.
If you don't mind games, if you know why you have a smart phone, and if you want a peace of mind for protection then the Windows phone is all you need. It has compass, it has offline navigation's maps and turn-by-turn navigation, it has great camera, Office, Outlook, Skype, ... all I need in one secure package. ;-)

Yeah I got some Bluetooth gear and a good miracast receiver, to play a little with continuum. Should be good for travelling, maybe a little Netflix around the home. I'm hoping feature2 rejoins the main dev branch soon, because the fall creators update windows features like Cortana skills and "timeline" will be boss on a windows phone.
Already picked out 27 apps and games I want to install :P
Never had a camera this good, nor a screen on a phone. My old phone is 2013, and midrange at that. First time windows 10 mobile user too, although I use windows 10 on desktop and tablet (used to use android on a tablet, not going back there!).
AnonD-666768, 20 May 2017Getting this beauty this weekend. Looking forward to it.Had my Lumia 950 for about two years now. It's a pretty awesome device. I use the continuum feature every day for work. It's amazing that a phone can become a full desktop
Getting this beauty this weekend. Looking forward to it.
Lumia 950 works well for me. No issues. Happy with the phone and all apps. Biggest problem is finding a canvas holster that has a secure belt clip.

Windows phone version. 💩💩💩🚽🚽🚽Without warning, it overheated while watching Netflix. You could smell hot plastic. Metro PCS showed me the scorched or burnt areas on the board. Warranty no help either. Nokia won't exchange it.

Kp, 14 Apr 2017How to reset the lumina 950I suppose you wanna do the hard reset. If it so, go to the All settings -> System -> About and on bottom you will find the option you need. Be careful, this will erase all your data. Maybe you want backup your personal information before you run the reset.
I have been using this phone for sometime now and have no problem but after some updates, I realised my camera 📷 shakes when I wanna take pics and sometimes make my pics blur. Pls I need help how to fix this
How to reset the lumina 950
Bye bye Windows phone, bye bye windows appliaction store, farewell windwos crap concept. Many thanks for killing Other potential OSs which was and still better than this crap concept.
Thanks for attaching alot of people and let them fall into thins mud. Many thanks for being non supportive to this OS.
Special Thanks to stupid Elop who destroyed Meego after one year and for what for Windows Crap which then ran away and ditched it.

If digitizer works on your 640 you can try to "fix" it with scren protector, not cost much to try.

However it doesn't have removable battery, bigger and cumbersome 5.5 inch screen and although it's factory unlocked still then T-Mobile makes you pay $25 extra for their SIM and go through all the SIM activation process while buying the device even if you don't need the T-Mobile SIM.
Really don't know what are you talking about. Mine 950 lasts full day of constant use and Edge is one of the best mobile browsers around. Perhaps your device is faulty one?
My best ever mobile phone, with windows mobile 10!
The worst phone ever! Every app has alot of bugs. The Edge is the worst browser ever. I am light internet user and it drains battery by attacking it with 85%!!! Half apps are totally useless and the other half are full of bugs. So poor and shameful performance of OS made by Microsoft. Everything that has Microsoft signature should be avoided without any doubt.
