Comparing this lumia 950 to my S5.
I hear bad reviews, why? I love the feel of this from the start. 32gb,20mp camera GGlass3 and alot of really quality features that i still don't know about yet because ive not used Microsoft phones and not used to windows10.
I'm actually liking this better than my s5 android BUT android is way faster on basic connectivity functions. This lumia seems to have to connect alot longer before web screens load which is a little frustrating.
It felt really nice out of the box and designer packaging gave me a nice experience but no headphones?and confused why power charger cable is a fixed cord.
So far though i really like it. Only owned it 24 hrs but once i get used to it i think I'll like it more. Was surprised this time around.
I think I get bored with the brand MICRxxxxxx. ---OS monopoly---EVENTHOUGH i'm sure that the hardware is very good and high quality, spesiali with the best camera(NOKIA)...
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2016Excellent phone. But worst thing is Microsoft is discontinuing its lumia range of smart phone... moreYes... the phone's hardware configuration is really excellent, but software support from Microsoft, is very bad. Further, Microsoft claims to discontinue their support. Hence, migrated to back to Android after 6 years.
[deleted post]Just remove the plastic shield, and the screen no more black, I've also get the updates
Who have problems adding new names and numbers of contacts on the Lumia 950
Dears I get it from DRC Congo, my problem is when I make a call, the screen is black and show nothing, other thing the update is so slow, 4% in one day I am afraid not to complete it
such a great phone. took the best pictures even better than all my iphone users friends. Colours are more radiant and brighter that made me proud i will be the one who will take group selfie since my phone took the best pics.
but of course, that amount of greatness comes with a bit overpricing, since the bad thing about it is microsoft/nokia phones are incompatible devices to many apps, like Instagram, googledrive etc etc.
but that's because why i chose nokia. because of its simplicity.
But worst thing is Microsoft is discontinuing its lumia range of smart phones.
It means company dsnt care about its customer just want to do what they like to do, 1st took Nokia but ended Nokia branding, then ending lumia range.
Very disappointed by Microsoft's decision.
Lumia User 1234, 31 Oct 2016Great phone, but there is not enough dev support, i get mad everyday with bluetooth connection... moreYes, that is big problem. Nobody listens to customers and guys from Microsoft are not interested, they've bought Nokia mobile just for fun, and now selling it to Foxconn... Pitty, this is very good phone.
Great phone, but there is not enough dev support, i get mad everyday with bluetooth connection problems (have to restart my phone), messenger hangs (have to restart my phone), spotify in offline mode (have to restart my phone), and if you think about it, there's no way to restart your phone, you have to turn it off, and on :)
For everyday use, is ok, the camera is great, outlook/calendar, sms/skype...
Guys .. im having still same problem, when I on the phone screen not gets on quickly aftr 3 4 secends it wake up, I did reset lyk u said... but stil have same issue but not al the time, but when I switch on and off then its cming right after that again after 1 day giving same problem. ? Please help me out..
The best of phone hardware, best camera better than iphone 7 that newly breed. The only lack is apps (which like banking, and most apps some still buggy, less development and developer) other than that it just superb phone i ever used. Continuum just a hype but hey! its great and smooth experiences!
user, 24 Oct 2016NEWS !!!!!!!! Whatsap video calling chat starts in windows mobile.Really! Great news indeed!

I'm using it for almost 20 hours of non-stop and installing tons of apps, it runs still very fast and stable. And much faster than Android. Are you sure your phone is not broken?
For ten years I was with iOS and Android, this is my first WP after four years (used briefly Htc 8s). And this is FANTASTIC PHONE! Fast enough, brilliant camera (one of the best on the market), qHD AMOLED with fine colour tuning, quick charging, really, really good phone. Plus modernized Windows (transparent tiles, black and white background, double tap wake/sleep, movable navigation bar, fast Edge, Glance option, wallpapers under moving and resizing tiles, file explorer, Here offline nav, quick Iris scanner etc. etc.) And now is very cheap. One minor minus is absence of notification led and the second, biggest designer mistake of this amazing phone - LOUSY BIG FAT BEZELS! Despite that, this is still one of the best phones even today. If they put small effort and made something nice as Htcs and Samsungs are, they've could make big impact on market and finally bring Windows Phone as a fine platform (which is much better than stupid Android!) to masses. But Microsoft missed oportunity. Again. I think that it can't be coincidentally. Or they hired idiots in designer team.
As a peace of hardware the phone is decent. But if device is considered as a package of software and hardware that make user experience together, this is not worth to buy and being annoyed all the time. OS is really not good, everything is slower, less smoother than you can find on other platforms. I don't want to occupy this section numbering concrete problems cause there are too many of them.
