Nice specs phone.
And so pretty!!!
I might be buying it for Christmas 2018 when the price gets low enough.
I'm willing to pay 200Â€ tops for 950 and 250Â€ for 950XL(unless my fortunes dramatically changes of course)
In the meantime I have to settle with my soon to be 2 years old Lumia 520(okay model is what 3 years old,but I have it soon to be 2 years).
It was great phone in the beginning,but now I'm sick of it,though it still good enough for most things especealy after recent upgrade of storidge capacity.
I really like Metro user interface.
If 950 is still available in 3 years time at as stated before at no more than 250Â€,there is good chance,I'll pick it up.
In meantime I must upgrade to something better than Lumia 520,and no Lumia 550 is not an option because it already belongs in 2013.
I may have to jump to Android in the meantime,which freaks me out because I have seen Sony and Samsung and I'd rather shoot myself.
LG seems passable,but I don't know.
How pretty or ugly phone is,it's at the bottom of my worries.
The 3 G talk time mentioned in the review section is incorrect, its correct talk mentioned in the specifications section is 18 hrs . Windows Phones are the best OS phones as its far far better than android and apple in terms of battery life and it doesnt hang or lag like android does . Its a phone with features that can actually be useful and not just a show piece like other phones in the same segment .
Forget the new Lumias 950 and 950 XL. Prices are astronomical. I've just got brand new Lumia 930 Black Gold for 420 EUR including all taxes, customs duties, etc. And Lumia 930 standard Black for 220 EUR, also BNIB. 600 EUR price for Lumia 950 is not justified. A couple of more cores, liquid cooling, blah blah blah,.. is it worth another 300 or so EUR? Nope. Finally, I love to see NOKIA letters on my phone than Microsoft, don't get me wrong, but this is how it goes.
PS Oh yeah, got the genuine Gold White cover off eBay for some 30 EUR so I can exchange Black to White and vice-versa in no time whenever I please. Great isn't it?
I have a note 5 but i will still be getting the 950 for programming. So your reason is invalid.
Anonymous, 01 Dec 2015whats the use of such an hardware when the os is so........ i wont be harsh lets just say crap... moreanother troll. im an android user myself, but i dont see WP falling behind on apps.
i'd get a windows (nokia/microsoft) phone myself if they weren't too expensive.
a great phone By MS... Pricing is much better compare to Iphones.. Plus Lumia 950/xl have SD card slots so compare to iPhones in these Lumia phones memory is not the problem.. Camera is great.. And with W10 mobile these new phones are good buy.. And those who think windows phone have less apps let me tell you that Windows phone store is evolving day by day and all usefull apps are avilaible.. Definately a good phone by Microsoft..

1. didn't you get denim update? so that's a support i think! isn't it?
2. maybe your OS doesn't need so much fixing updates like android updates!! ;) that's the point dude

The latest version of Windows 10, update 10586, is very stable, and running perfectly.

Microsoft even updates phones as the Lumia 920 from 2012 to Windows 10, so even 3 year old phones still got updated. If you're in the right zone you can expect an upgrade to Windows 10 in January.
AnonD-471734, 30 Nov 2015yeah, if you think the orange-ish red on the iPhone 6s is better than the vivid red on the 950The orange is actually the true color of that object in the picture.
I rather have a picture with little less detail and true color than with much detail and different colors.
