AnonD-340886, 17 Jan 2016No..dude.. App developers r lazy.. Not Microsoft..I personally know lot of developers they stopped working on Windows 10 because they din't get any backup from Microsoft in which ever and what so ever way. They are were approached by Blackberry and iOS and they are getting good support from both the brands and they've been successfully building apps for them.
I'm not talking about 2 developer, I know 8 developers who have stopped building apps for windows because of lack of critical support from the giant.
Don't talk rubbish, if you don't know! The only reason why Apps are the least in Windows App store isn't because developers are lazy its because, Microsoft as a brand doesn't support App developers like Android, Blackberry or iPhone supports them. Its as simple as that, Microsoft is a lazy ass company not the developers!!
AnonD-488170, 13 Jan 2016Till Microsoft takes care of the Windows apps department, it phones can't take market.
Dude Microsoft isn't the only responsible team for app development... The app developers r the main guys who makes the apps .. They r lazy becos the windows phone sale is less compared with android..so these app devs r interested in making apps for android..
as windows started there development in 2010.. But android started in 2005 so they got more popularity n app development..
Also as windows 10 mobile is a closed source os it is not easy to make official apps. Takes time n resources..
But android is an open source software..which make it easy to make apps n vulnerable to hacking n virus infection..
A total of 600000 apps r in windows store.. Almost all the necessary official apps...
Till Microsoft takes care of the Windows apps department, it phones can't take market.

Lumia 930 was thousand times better looking than this ugly phone, seriously after Microsoft took over Nokia's Lumia brand they have been ruining the designs of the phones, first it was 640 and 640XL which were ugly has hell but then of course they were cheap so one can ignore their ugliness and now it is 950 and 950XL which are completely ugly, and this time it makes no sense because this phone is ugly despite being a premium high end phone.

tg, 23 Dec 2015I like windows 10 mobile now.

And Lumia 950 has the function of Continuum, which by connect it to your monitor or TV and mouse/keyboard, you can turn it into a PC like experience. I used that frequently during the holiday time, it was great. (you can totally do that wireless with Miracast TV and Bluetooth mouse/keyboard too)
So had this phone for a week now, and during the holiday, just love the smoothness of the OS compared to Android, plus Continuum could be really use full.
With continuum, I can calling with some one, casting video to TV, and replying email on my monitor all at the same time, and just phenomenon, almost like using a PC, which is what Microsoft promised. I know the OS and firmware still have lots of issues now, but looking forward.
As lots argue about App gap , I didn't feel too much on that, 1, since Nov, tons of new app or app updates to windows 10 UWP, which means same app for both windows 10 pc and mobile phone (and eventually Xbox too), 2, as personally didn't find any app I use regularly missing, either thru official or third party. 3. Three years ago, there are huge gap on Android too, and still some compared to iOS, or vice versa. So if there is no app, just don't use, I won't die without it.
Of course I am not saying it might fit everyone's need, just some use PC and some use Mac. But I just need to point out don't lock yourself into a jail of limited choice but open to anything.
