,even Satya Nadal it self accepted that Windows phone never be the right choice if we looking for the apps.Rumors also suggest that Microsoft working over Linux based OS somewhat may be Cyanogen (not sure but rumors) Microsoft investing huge money over Cynogen for its development.And now sources also claims that Cynogen working for its own apps development.
People love Lumia phones not because of their spec sheets, they are famous for combination of NokiaÂ’s quality and Microsoft-developed hardware and software solutions.

Shashwat.newk1995, 27 Jul 2016I think after anniversary update. What you say?I. Don't think it's a good time to buy Windows phone.Microsost declared to close Lumia smartphone and Surface phone is on hold.Windows phone having a very poor track record recently they ditch its one of the best flagship device 1020,925 and 1320 these smartphone will not going to enjoy Windows 10 benift.HTC also drops to manufacture Windows phone.Microsoft restrict HTC One M 8 to Windows 8.2 only no Windows 10 for HTC One M 8.Don't buy Windows phone if you want to buy Windows phone only then wait for the HP Elite X3.This HP device is much impactful over Lumia 950 & 950 XL.HP having a fresh agreement with Microsoft for the future update of its device.HP Elite X3 is secure investment if you want Windows phone only.
Apple007, 26 Jul 2016Any time Microsoft will stop it's support for existing Lumia devices.I think after anniversary update. What you say?
Here is my notes regarding Lumia 950. For those people who want to buy this phone my advice is to avoid it. There are plenty reasons not to get stuck with this peace of hardware. Overheating is the biggest problem. Every app overheats the phone if it is used continuously more than 10 minutes. This is so frustrating. There are no good navigation (Here maps are no longer supported), Edge performs very poor, etc. Not worth money and nervous.

I have used iPhones and Androids phones.
Pro: For business and productivity, the Lumia 950 with windows phone 10 os is in my experience a better device. Especially, if you are using the Microsoft Office suite. It integrates nicely. The camera is also amazing.
Con: Wish for a better battery life.
I thinking to buy Microsoft Lumia 950,Do someone can help me in this,do i can buy it or any issue with thIS mobile,the only reason to buy this hardware is it can be used as PC.

Microsoft is not reliable.They never fullfil it's own commitment.1320,1020 & 925 these smartphone high end smartphone and fullfil all the requirements to get Windows 10 but Microsoft ditch these Smartphone and will not get official Windows 10 update.Its so embarrassing to trust over Microsoft.When Microsoft skip support for their existing Lumia devices nobody's knows that not even Microsoft itself they have no vision what they will do.
Billy Costigan, 21 Jul 2016Does this phone heating when running some app or when browsing on the net? no

They need everyone in windows 10. As free pc upgrade is going to end earlier they forced users and now this. And windows phones are being neglected.
I would like to share my experience wiht Lumia 950 after two weeks including some "issues" - maybe you find it helpful.
I considered to buy an android phone, but after bad experience I gave a chance to Lumia 950. Windows 10 runs smoothly, display is perfect, however there was mentioned some issues.
It gets hot during use
It is matter of settings. I disabled all applications (except Messaging and some others) to run in background and it really helps. Phone is getting hot, but after 10 minutes and more of browisng. But notthing you can't bear.
Unable to connect wi-fi
I experience this, however maybe it is issue with battery saver. When I turned off battery saver, almost immediately I connect to wi-fi.
Only once - supposed Edge browser has a problem with page display and phone restarted.
Lack of applications
Yes, this can be frustrating. However, there is always free application you need but you can choose only from one or two available (on Android you have tens of alternatives). Some apps are not available and you have to use web version.
Overall opinion - great phone, price is now more fair (you can get it for under 300 E), runs smoothly, no problem with contact transfer from android, and also camera is great.
