Recently I upgraded from L930 WP8.1 to L950 WP10. System software needs a lot work to be done. Shame that WP10 does not support "Here drive+", "Lumia story teller", and few other app's which was by my humble opinion very good. Microsoft maps works, but not like "Here" before. There is no option to download other language. I'm not native eng. speaker, and I would like to have an option that my phone is on eng. and nav app on other language like it was on "Here drive+" . Speed test show that my download speed is only ~5Mbps even do I'm connected on to N WIFI, and ISP provide 50Mbps. My old phone was working on ~20Mbps. Maybe it is app problem, but I don't know. "People app" have an option to create something called "GroupMe", but I don't want to. So I would like to have an option to remove that. If you go in to "People" you will always end up in to contacts, even if you live from one of your group. Pictures from people are smaller than before, why? "Word" can't open an *.txt!!! Ridiculous! "Weather" crashes from time to time. Someone here suggested that one a week remove battery to experience " beater performance"!? If I wanted that I would buy an Android phone. I know, similar was with my L930 from beginning. I was even thinking to return the phone. Just writing this, and hope someone will reed it.
Greetings to all!
... I have problems with Lumia 950 !!! The phone crashes many times !!! for example: when I write an SMS, or tiping comments on facebook or using messenger ... or when he wants !!! I had a Lumia 930 before and sometimes it did it the same tricks, than I "refreshed back" on windows 8.1 and the problem was solved ! I don't know what to do with my 950 ?!!?!?

Gsmchecker, 24 Jan 2016This is not iris scaner and this tech is used way years ago in Sony,not impressed at all!it is indeed an iris scanner, not the lame face recognition...
unimpressed with your misinformation

It was copy of lumia 638 with bigger screen and better camera. Don't talk about hardware specifications,everyone know that. The OS is problem here. Whether you buy 520 or 950, everything is same, even performance except better hardware. And windows apps, waiting for years to get official YouTube, Instagram, snapchat, amazon and what not.
Need to make widows 10 as good as 8.1, bit cluttered at the moment. Not as simple, and fix Facebook App as i think child designed it... Missing many features Roid Has
After over one week of use I have mixed feelings Most apps which I use works fine. System works fine, in one week time I had 2 situations when app crashed
Major problem for me is battery Average time between charge was 8 hours with the best results 15h 52 minutes (phone disconnected before night, so - 7 hours sleeping time)
Two days ago I started use phone in battery saver mode Here is any solution I achieved 20 hours 41 minutes on Sunday and 18h 11m today
So or reduce brightness to 25% and stop most apps in background or start use battery saver every day
El Genoves, 22 Jan 2016In short? The worst smart phone I had so far. I got it from work and it's close to impossible... moreDont ever buy it if u dont know how to use windows. I love my lumia 625 more than any new android i own.
This phone is terrible. I was a huge Nokia Lumia fan, and upgraded to this. Worse mistake of my life. I can't send texts to more than one person without starting a group, I can no longer text pictures. The alarm that used to start with a low chime now blares at first chime. The message notification doesn't update to show that the email or text has been read for a while. It seems to queue my email messages rather than send them to me automatically (from hotmail no less). The on button with the case is hard to push. I wish I could go back to my old Nokia.

long life, 25 Jan 20163000mAh for a 5.2 qHD display??? in 2016? are you kidding? No, Microsoft, thank you. Dude windows phone doesn't need bigger battery to work ..like in android.. K then wat about galaxy s6??..
Ever heard about Lumia 640xl..5.7 " display.. 13mp cam.5mp selfie cam.. 3000mah battery.. Can last upto 2 days in moderate use.
Use one them comment..
i think if u like windows os then its better to buy 950. if u dont then go for iphone 6s. but i guess the camera will be pretty awesome in 950!!!
