At least with the Here Maps and the downloading of maps for offline use, BUT since you are using an W10m device, I don't really know if this app is even working for that OS. It works flawlessly in Android and iOS though.
QUESTION : Can 950 use GPS for mapping without WiFi and/or Data? I hike a lot and the BLU I have only has A-GPS and so is of no use in the wilderness. Thanks for help ...
Actually one can use Lumia 950 as a pocket PC. The "dock" cube with the HDMI cable can use TV as a monitor. Camera is simply great, battery can be replaced and the sound can be adjusted. Running Windows X smoothly. Apps are the only drawback. My experience with this phone are excellent in 2021.
Bluetooth1, 13 Apr 2021No, unless you're going to use Windows 10 ARM/Windows 10X which works better on the 950 XLthanks for the reply!

Hanzhanz, 03 Dec 2020Are This phone can use WA, IG ( instagram ), Facebook dll ? No whatsapp or messenger but you can use instagram (winsta) and Facebook. You can also use Discord (Unicord) and telegram, they're both working really well on Windows phones
does anybody know how to setting dns on this phone or some kind of free vpn perhaps? is there any adblock for edge or window phone?
Hanzhanz, 03 Dec 2020Are This phone can use WA, IG ( instagram ), Facebook dll ? no wa, no messenger, not sure about social media stuff, i'm not using any of those craps (if i have to i just access some of them through edge browser). telegram still working last time i checked
Are This phone can use WA, IG ( instagram ), Facebook dll ?
Love this phone! I agree, I am still using this phone in 2020!
For all practical phone uses, it is still my favorite device!

Finding a true original won't be easy, but at least there is a third party replacement.
i'm still using mine, still love wp. i gave up whatsapp and plenty of apps, i found out after many months living without those apps, it turned out pretty doable, much doable than living using android phones, i tried real hard to migrate to android phones, i really just can't stand that piece of crap they called smartphones, to this date. too bad microsoft screwed up real bad dropping windows phone, luckily for me, w10m still works in some cases while wp 8.1 pretty much dead, kinda sad, there were some super interesting apps on wp 8.1 in my opinion
btw do you guys know where to buy proper replacement battery for lumia 950? preferably genuine one. i can't find one, i bought three replacement batteries in the past 4 months, all three already swollen
I still use Lumia 950, despite there being no apps or updates for it. I find the windows 10 Mobile interface more appealing than Android or Apple.
The Lumia 950 is the phone and PC in one pocket-class device. While it does suffer from overheating it can be your daily driver in taking calls, browsing the internet and doing desktop tasks, all thanks to hacker who brought full Windows 10 ARM onto it! Credits to imbushuo and gus33000. On woaproject.net you can find tutorials + user help. You can even connect an external display to it, check it out: https://twitter.com/imbushuo/status/1296327525149245442
Still the best phone I ever owned. Pity the battery gave out after 4 years of heavy use. Lack of apps was a problem (especially banks not rolling out their aps for this, HP calculator apps not being available)
Now sitting with a Samsung - high end supposed to be, broke after 2 years and with major irritations of samsung and android UI.
