Hey guys i have been using lumia 950 since a month its a great phone in all aspects , FYI please format full phone after anniversary update and then use it , this will solve alot of problems like battery drain and heat issue and do not disable text messaging app from background otherwise you will not get any notification for it. Now mine last for a day with normal usage. Cheers
Lumia 950 is very good phone. no any complaint , very good performance. if we have WhatsApp, imo, viber, skype aplications in this phone we should OFF these background apps. then we will get more good performance and battery life from this phone. ( go to settings - privacy - background apps ).
chad, 23 Sep 2016You buying any Lumia phone is a BIG mistake ..They are ending the Lumia phones this December..... moreNo that's incorrect. Lumia will be end of life but Windows 10 mobile continues and will keep getting updates.
It's now 299 euro including dock in the Netherlands on the Microsoft store, both black and white version.

I was very happy with the Nokia Lumia 925, so I upgraded to the Microsoft Lumia 950 as soon as it got out. At first, it was a good experience, save a battery drain problem. But as Microsoft "upgraded" it, it became worse and worse to the point I cannot considering using it anymore for professional usage.
It is unreliable, unstable, erratic and does what it wants. Sometimes, the screen does not react, leaving you infuriated to be unable to pick up an important phone call.
One night, I was confronted to a life and death emergency on the road. I found out to my absolute dismay that the phone was in the process to upgrade itself... Watching the bar inch forward to pass an emergency call while a person is bleeding to death next to you is not an experience I wish to live again (miraculously the person survived).
I am not counting the times when the phone seems normal but cannot receive calls because it expects a sim card code (of course, it rebooted at some point without asking, with superb disregard for scheduled time... Or not considering useful to notify the user that phone is offline). When you find out and the missed calls notifications start to pile in, you'd want to hurl the thing out of the window.
The calendar management is pitiful, does not support google, and does not work well with... Outlook.com (it mixes up the accounts in manners nobody can understand). Continuum is a joke (better use an iPad with iCloud). Groove music is the worst player around. Pictures gallery does not remember where it was when you open a picture (letting you scroll down hundreds of pics to reeume browsing...). I stop here but the list goes on.
I am not a geek. I chose the Lumia because at first it seemed simpler that an Android and better for work than the iPhone. I did not expect that I'd need any sort of technical skills to simply be able to use it when I need it or to make it behave in a common sense manner. To me, it was designed by people who are clueless about how a phone is used in a day-to-day manner. After 11 months of experience, I found that the user experience has considerably degraded, despite the blaring promises.
I must say I LOVE Windows 10 on PC as it is a really good and simple system for non-specialists (who represent the majority). But on the Lumia, it is simply catastrophic.
I think I will never buy another Lumia phone again unless significant and decisive improvements are made. To me, its lack of reliability is close to criminal (a mobile phone is not simply a mobile facebook terminal or a pocket entertainment console, gents. It is a communication device and communication is a very serious thing for many people). As of today, it would be suicidal to trust the Lumia with your life.
Microsoft managed to mess up a very sleek piece of hardware into junk. If they were honest, they would write in big, bold letters on the box:
THIS IS ONLY A TOY, DO NOT USE FOR ANY SERIOUS PURPOSE.

Nokia made great phones over the years until they joined windows and then leaving altogether..Then windows destroyed itself with these terrible phones..
Microsoft is a unique smartphone company, Currently I'm using Microsoft Lumia 540. I'm very happy with the Microsoft. I have read specifications of Lumia 950. Specifications are fabulous. I hope, it will launch soon. I'm very excited for the Microsoft Lumia 950. I'll buy it soon.

If not then it may be faulty. Had an issue with proximity sensor on my own Lumia 930 had to send it off for a fix, basically the glass on the screen needed re-glued...
Anonymous2, 27 Aug 2016This is an excellent phone. Have had Android and Apple. Excellent specs. The problem is MS.... moreAm not a developer, but am intrigued as to how Microsft are making it hard for Developers.
Microsoft are and have delivered tools to help developers port there Android, iOS and Legacy Win32/64 apps to modern Windows 10 Universal Apps for the Windows Store.
Kodi have begun work on their Win32/64 port with the help of Microsoft and have been surprised how easy it has been.
If people don't believe me then search it on Bing (or Google).
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2016Nope its amazing app though Loving it, next is ALLO. Google/Android is Anti-Microsoft and scared to add its apps to Windows store, same as Apple.
**Actually only one Google app in Windows store, its search app, ancient, unsupported app by Google**
Which of the big three companies has the most cross-platform apps - have a guess!
Answer: Its not Google and Apple
