I've owned several Windows phones, both NOKIA and of course Microsoft. The 950 is the best of the bunch so far, very powerful, full featured. Why pay hundreds more for an iPhone when the 950 has equal or better hardware. My only complaint, would be battery life, but then maybe purchasing an after market battery would take care of that problem. I'm glad that the 950 has wireless charging.
Tried two of Lumias 950 this year.
Battery doesn't hold well.
Screen is weak and tough to see in sunlight.
On the other side the phone is comfortable, continuum works fast, and it's charging fast enough. The camera is superior.
Have to carry a charger/spare battery even for normal use.
Mynutts, 17 Jul 2018I still use my Lumia 950 and love it!Yeap, i still have it too, but since the update, the front facing camera stop working. I think Microsoft fire them and forget to hired new camera.
One of the best phone I had ever, Fast, Super touchscreen, Best audio quality, Sufficient storage & RAM, Iris scanner works perfect, Super camera, Best battery life, and Still getting the updates

Mbabazi, 10 Oct 2017My Lumia 950 duo simcard doesn't have FM Radio. What should I do?Sell it and buy fm radio
i bought this phone last year with lot of expectations, but all failed due to over heating issue. even in camera usage can't use more than 10 minutes due to heating. i used to charge 3 or 4 times if i am Online. if not Online, battery is enough for a day. this is the one and major setback.
i recommend people not to buy this.
Bought a new Lumia 950 yesterday, with a 3A charger and surprisingly, a fancy piece of headphone too. It's a white one. Feeling handfull with the 20 MP camera. Pureviiew tech is back on my palm after my Lumia 920

Hi guys....microsoft is a best hardware in the market....and microsoft lumia 950 is the best handsets in the market...
Jeff, 06 Jul 2017Better than 950, are you kidding me, that glitzy junk may run on Windows 10 Mobile but it can'... moreLet me enlist the reasons:
Better processor, Snapdragon 820 on Alcatel Idol 4S Windows is way better than Snapdragon 808 on Lumia 950.
More RAM, 4 GB RAM on Alcatel.
More storage, 64 GB storage on Alcatel.
No overheating issues.
Dual front facing and dual rear facing stereo speakers.
The screen resolution may be lower than 950 but 1920 X 1080 is quite good resolution and puts less strain on battery, the screen resolution of 950 is complete overkill.
Better build quality, glass and metal construction.
Slimmer design, easier to carry and feels better in hand.
Camera may not be a Carl-Zeiss optics camera but it isn't bad either.
Costs just $275, which makes it cheaper than Lumia 950.
Nick, 30 May 2017I bought the factory unlocked variant of Alcatel Idol 4S Windows from Amazon at just $275. Yup... moreBetter than 950, are you kidding me, that glitzy junk may run on Windows 10 Mobile but it can't be better than 950.
Glass body which can slip and break anytime, no NFC, inferior camera, inferior screen resolution, I don't see a single good reason why would anyone prefer to buy that Alcatel Idol 4S Windows over Lumia 950.

Disable the brightness auto adjustment and manually change the brightness if required. See if your problem goes away.

Have you lost it, glass body can never be as durable as a metal or polycarbonate body. No matter how much metal flame you put between the glass if the phone falls that glass body will crack like an egg.
