Great phone, but there is not enough dev support, i get mad everyday with bluetooth connection problems (have to restart my phone), messenger hangs (have to restart my phone), spotify in offline mode (have to restart my phone), and if you think about it, there's no way to restart your phone, you have to turn it off, and on :)
For everyday use, is ok, the camera is great, outlook/calendar, sms/skype...

Please help me out..
The best of phone hardware, best camera better than iphone 7 that newly breed. The only lack is apps (which like banking, and most apps some still buggy, less development and developer) other than that it just superb phone i ever used. Continuum just a hype but hey! its great and smooth experiences!

I'm using it for almost 20 hours of non-stop and installing tons of apps, it runs still very fast and stable. And much faster than Android. Are you sure your phone is not broken?
For ten years I was with iOS and Android, this is my first WP after four years (used briefly Htc 8s). And this is FANTASTIC PHONE! Fast enough, brilliant camera (one of the best on the market), qHD AMOLED with fine colour tuning, quick charging, really, really good phone. Plus modernized Windows (transparent tiles, black and white background, double tap wake/sleep, movable navigation bar, fast Edge, Glance option, wallpapers under moving and resizing tiles, file explorer, Here offline nav, quick Iris scanner etc. etc.) And now is very cheap. One minor minus is absence of notification led and the second, biggest designer mistake of this amazing phone - LOUSY BIG FAT BEZELS! Despite that, this is still one of the best phones even today. If they put small effort and made something nice as Htcs and Samsungs are, they've could make big impact on market and finally bring Windows Phone as a fine platform (which is much better than stupid Android!) to masses. But Microsoft missed oportunity. Again. I think that it can't be coincidentally. Or they hired idiots in designer team.
As a peace of hardware the phone is decent. But if device is considered as a package of software and hardware that make user experience together, this is not worth to buy and being annoyed all the time. OS is really not good, everything is slower, less smoother than you can find on other platforms. I don't want to occupy this section numbering concrete problems cause there are too many of them.

Read, understand, interpret, and then comment. Grade 2 sarcasim wont cut it. I said maybe he got a bad handset...All products in all aspects have their faults...all i said was MINE has not shown any of these faults. Maybe we must also look at users rather than always dissecting products✌

Upgraded from Nokia Lumia 920( which is a great phone even now far much better than Microsoft Lumia 950)in March 2016 started heating up, draining battery too quick and send it in for repairs in June, came back still doing same thing. Sent it again and was replaced with a new one. Did the same thing until now I don't have that phone still being repaired. Microsoft Lumia 950 piece of garbage don't be tempted
SwissPro, 25 Sep 2016I was very happy with the Nokia Lumia 925, so I upgraded to the Microsoft Lumia 950 as soon as... moreWake up and smell the coffee...you think other phones are problem free...they have more serious issues....a least you MS Lumia wont blow up in your face. Further to your complaints i think you just bought a bad handset....Mine is perfect. PM
Ive been reading some of the comments on this phone and i am confused regarding the negative feedback on the phone. I changed from the Nokia Lumia 1020 to the MS Lumia 950..and wow..its awesome..got it for a month now and absolutley happy with it. Camera is amazing..panorama shots incredible, light, no problems from start. Microsoft will surely increase market share if this is the platform they are going to use for future phones. Well done MS. I,m sold.
