I av been using window phones since its inception around 5 yrs ago. I wish to buy the latest lumia 950 and need to be convinced about the new OS. Is the new Windows 10 compatible with most of the sites like Facebook, watapp, etc? Is it faster than the previous phones? Cos I presently use lumia 925 and is so slow on watsapp and face book messenger. Please advice between lumia 930 and 950. Tnx.
Guys been using the awesome Lumia 950 dual sim since 3 weeks now...
I upgraded from Lumia 1020 which I used for nearly 3 years... the phone is very good... awesome camera.... very very fast... great screen... getting good battery life's..got mozo cover with red leather with gold rim... and phone is looking like limited edition...
So far iam very happy.... and see great future in windows 10 mobile
sunil, that is GEOFENCING, a geofence is a boundary around a place of interest, and apps can use your location to see if you're crossing in and out of one.to stop apps from using your location for geofencing, turn off location for those apps. one or more of your apps are currently using geofencing. ( think and do change settings don't make misunderstand).
Lumia 950 user,try on your phone,go on map when location is off than Clik on my location symbol it will take you in settings for location on than came back on map and try to off the location though only shortcuts keys phone will get hangs,dead and not restart without battery removing for this problems I replaced my 1st handset but still problems with 2nd handset this may be design issue
Windows 10 Mobile is slick ,
Iris-scanning lockscreen ,
Continuum is its best trick.
@MohanParmar1, 06 Jan 2016I will not ask you "why do you like other OSs/Devices" but I can give you many reasons to Purc... moreVery true but they need to hire another 5000 mobile people, fix this mess. Win 8.1 denim you can get to things easier, 10 has to many sub menue. Hurts my brain navigating, its a bit to bouncy for me, but maybe buggy. Keyboard i prefer 8.1, need to fix things there it's very hard to see things, and Emoji needs updating like IOS. I don't like that call button down near text where you type should be moved. 10 is nicer but lots of work, as for Apps yes they are nice unique but Facebook being the no 1 app, its a hot mess that needs Fixed ASAP not in 6 months. I use it daily and least expect it to work with same features as IOS and Android.
Want to ask one question. whether lumia 950 fully support Flash player or no ?
Decision to buy or not depend on that feature.
You can't attach anything other than pictures for reply mail. However you can select document and pick share option and select your mailID configured in mobile to send document as attachment.
can anyone tell me how to reply a mail by attaching a document with it. Every time when i try to reply a mail , in attachment windows phone shows only photes. Please help me to solve this problem.
user, 04 Jan 2016Microsoft products are very good, we can trust.Microsoft produce good products, average products, and bad products - just like every other company.
Windows 7 I really liked
Windows 8.1, in my honest opinion, was absolutely rubbish.
Windows 10 I really like
Windows Phone 7 was trash, windows phone 8 was ok, Windows phone 10 looks much better.
On the other hand, Windows tablets are (IMHO) by far the best on the market. Simply because every tablet with Android or IOS is always going to have very limited functionality - just an oversized phone minus the phone functionality, more or less.
Proper Windows 10 tablets however give you all the functionality of a fully fledged desktop PC - that includes the ability to run proper Windows applications, view full desktop versions of websites, full flash support, join domains and HomeGroups, easily install printers, etc. That's a level of functionality that no Android or IOS tablet can offer.
With Continuum, Microsoft phones are taking one big step towards having that same type of advantage. A business could potentially save thousands and thousands of dollars by supplying staff with just a phone and dock that can go in their briefcase/handbag...they could move seamlessly from home to work, and from one office to the next, and just connect their phone (with dock) to whatever spare desk is available. Much cheaper (for the company) and more practical (for the user) than having to carry a largish laptop, 4G card, laptop bag, etc.
@MohanParmar1, 06 Jan 2016I will not ask you "why do you like other OSs/Devices" but I can give you many reasons to Purc... moreI can only assume you work for Microsoft? Because that list you just made sounds like a marketing list straight from MS.
I'm an Android user (have been for years) and have never considered IOS - I have used multiple IOS devices, and IMHO they are absolute rubbish. However, Windows phones since around 8.1 have actually intrigued me, so I have (for some time) considered getting one just to experiment with.
I've upgraded my desktop, laptop and tablet all to Windows 10 and I am incredibly impressed with how adaptable the OS is. I hated Windows 8 and 8.1, but since upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 I haven't looked back.
Only reason I'm saying all this is to establish that I am not an anti-MS person, or a "won't touch anything but Android" person.
Now, with that said, I think a lot of items on your list here are incredibly optimistic.
Some such points...
1. Best possible camera
Years ago, Nokia really broke ground by being the first manufacturer to release a phone with a camera that could legitimately compete with a dedicated point-and-shoot. Every since that day, every Nokia fanboy has somehow got the impression that EVERY Nokia camera is now superior. Right now, there are a number of Android devices with seriously impressive cameras (S6, G4, Z5) and as much as I hate to admit it, even the iPhone 6S camera is pretty impressive. Nokia cameras are no longer so superior...in fact they might not be superior at all.
2. All apps are available (useful apps, not garbage)
Firstly, this is just a straight up lie. I've gone to the app store on my Windows 10 Tablet, and the selection of apps really is woeful. I'm not the kind of person who wastes my time on games and the like - I have a bunch of apps on my android phone which are extremely practically useful, and very few of those apps are available from the Windows store. Those that are, often do not work properly.
For example, Trello is a fantastic app that I use for organising just about everything - and on Microsoft Edge browser it runs jerky.
Another example is Viber - works perfectly on every android device I've used, but on my Windows tablet it works poorly. There is no button to directly take a photo and insert it - you need to take a picture manually with the camera app, then open viber, then browse to the file, then attach it. Likewise when I run the tablet in tablet mode and tap in the text box to type a viber message, it doesn't recognise it's a text box and automatically bring up the on-screen keyboard...instead I have to manually press the keyboard button, and then the keyboard appears over the top of the text box so I can't see what I'm typing.
One Drive is not really an advantage - it's not any different to using something like Dropbox. Hardly an advantage.
Office apps - also not an advantage, since you can get these on Android now.
Smooth OS a PARTIAL point. That's because my current android phone (LG G4) runs 100% smooth with no slowdowns or lag ever, so Windows being smooth isn't really an advantage for me. For those with older android phones (from 3 years ago or before) it is a fair point, since Android devices were sluggish then...but most modern flagship devices are super smooth now.
Unique OS design - again that isn't an advantage, that's just a distinction.
Offline navigation with voice guidance - Android phones have supported this for years.
Edge / IE being the best web experience...that is very debatable.
Quick settings in action center - Andoid has a ton of these too.
Quit hours - Android has the same type of thing (called priority mode)
Wallet for online payment - Android has this too
Skype can be downloaded for free on Android.
Really there are maybe only a handful of things you listed that are legit advantages, such
- Creative Studio
I think that's really about all.

there are many things still you need to know.
I recently bought a Lumia 950 and I must say am so disappointed. The first phone I used for about 20 min then the buttons collapsed (froze), Sent it back and got a new one the same thing happened within 10 min. I suggest Microsoft check their settings under narrator coz once you press that button the phone breaks down.
