Now have it for about 7 months. Love the phone. I do have android as well - only because there was no windows tablet
I love it, however the ring time is way too short. It rings twice then bye bye. I am told it is in the software.

It is actually brighter than the 920, but sounds like it just needs a little adjusting. That blue screen, sad face I think is a software issue but you can look it up on YouTube. It id a great phone. I have had my problems, but I am using a 950XL right now to write this comment. Once its running it's an awesome phone.......just takes a little patience.
I got this 950XL in feb 2016, the screen is not as strong as the lumia 920 screen. Its showing me a blue screen with a sad face now. A friend said i need to change the battery! Yes it has good picture etc but its a phone i regret buying.
anonymous, 15 Oct 2016The HP Elite x3 is more powerful than this & also uses Window 10.Yeah, but let's not forget this one costs now only 399 euros. Which, is a steal, minding the fact that is quite powerful and has a great camera and good battery life. also with the new update has almost no glitch, almost. But hp has more glitches at this point so...

I used the the recovery tool and after the second install, it started working fine. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on how you look at it, the situation got to a point where I couldn't make any calls so I did a hard reset about two days ago and oddly enough, it's working perfectly again. Im using it to make this comment and all. I got the latest update as of yesterday and now I have no issues......at least not yet. Fingers crossed it behaves. Thanks for the help!

Your recomandation is kind of lame, settings less and nothing special. For the moment, i'll stick with something that actually UPDATES, Not just updates, but using the old saying. If it ain't brocken, don't fix it, that apple does since ever. Their systems are all dated and boring as hell. Not to say how retarded the mac is in front of windows, windows is light years away of that system. That system stucked in 1998. Ios stcked in 2007. Their design stucked at what they managed to copy from old school nokias. Yeah, i have to agree, i recommand not going for ios;). Android would be a way better option for windows users then that lifeless system, and i do not like android at all;).

And is more secure then the desktop version, cause of sandboxing. I would not like a desktop version for my smartphone at all. Neither should you. Antiviruses make the system slower and are not quite the perfect thing to have, exe apps are kind of useless on such small screen. I see no benefit of using a desktop version in a smartphone. But yeah, they could bring some more future from that version to mobile, i am not against that:)
Ajith, 29 Sep 2016Hii frnd, have u tell the apps names for our 950 xl, please mention which purpose for the app ... moreFor videos: Ach player, or flv player (the first is a nifty little tool, that sadly does not have a up to date inerface but does almost everything. Is not that simple to use and understand, but once you do it, it will be interesting not to have it.
Music: Loci music player, the best their is. The single player closer to winamp, i do not need online crappy this and what ever groove does.
Windows info. Windows central, apprising. To great apps, no need for other info apps.
Battery: Battery x. The only app i see does not take a punch to the battery it self. Nice litle app with graphics and some other interesting functions.
For locking pictures, videos and notes: Brilli gallery locker
Casting: Duplex media player. Is kind of expensive, but does have some great function not that easy to ignore (app is farely new, so might have some bugs
For archives: Extractor for ZIP and RAR (yeah, a stupid name, but a good app.
Foto editing. Fantasia painter (the best their is, in my opinion), vinci and fotor.
Note taking : Kicknotes. The apps is promising, has backup on local storage and you can set a pin on it, also you can set a pin entering the app. Sadly has some annyoing bugs. But it's functions are not to be found anywhere so, well, i have to stay with the bugs.
Alternative browser. Monument browser. Is good and interesting to use.
For you tube: MyTube, i have came a long way in this platform, but nothing compare to stability and speed of this app. I hate the interface of you tube on android, this app just kills that interface in my opinion, and is full of functions.
For more functions: Perfect tools. Great compass, speedometer, noisemeter and so on. Try it.
Touch and lock: Great app for locking the screen without pressing any button. It avoids systems animations so the screen will lock instantly.
Xodo for pdf. stopmusic (the yellow one) to kill music and delete thse nasty buttons always staying on while presing volume rocker.
Wifi file sharer, nifty little tool to share files. Video compressor, great tool for making smaller videos to send via whatsapp or whatever other app you want to send videos with.
T-translator: Better does not get. Blame google for crappy resaults, their will be some.:)
I don't play games, the only game i have and still keeps me interested is yatzy ultimate.
Apps wort to metion: Aida64, myappfree, nfc shortcut, office lens, pencil sketch collage
Playcast, photo funia, squid (papyrus), share it and another game: slingpin

Music doesn't play if I close groove and open it again, if mus... moreAnalize the apps you installed, this type of behaviour can be also the cause of an app doing whatever. In audiorouting disable "during a call" function, if you have it on. This function messe up my phone sadly. They will fix it, but well, takes some time. Update to the latest comultative update, was released yesterday. If nothing works,take it back. Or jump on ms's throat. They will have to give you some answers, helping you with something. This can also be a firmware error. Do you remember when it first happened, what you did before, installed?
Ok so my 950XL is freaking out. Music doesn't play if I close groove and open it again, if music is playing and the screen is locked, I can't adjust the volume without unlocking the device or waking it. The loud speaker activates on its own even tho the audio routing is turned off in both whatsapp calls and normal call app. I reinstalled the software using recovery tool but after about two days it starts again. Any suggestions on how to solve this problem?
The specifications on this state that it's operating system is Microsoft Windows 10, or is it the watered down & restrictive Windows 10 Mobile? It would be a great system if it was capable of running the unrestricted full version of Microsoft Windows 10 Professional.
vijay pandey, 01 Oct 2016may I know about automatic call recording,camera button & single sim option in lumia 950xl.As far as I know calls are recorded manually, it is very easy to record, because it among the menus when you are making or receiving a call. I guess that way you do not have to record calls not worth recording, thereby minimising the use of your storage.
The dedicated camera button launches the camera, even when the phone is locked (though you will have to enable it to launch when locked in the settings). If you press the button half way it will stabilise and focus the image. Pressing down and holding the button take images in panorama mode.
The download speed for single SIM is 300MB/s while the dual SIM is 150MB/s

It got it's first ever fall yesterday but it wasn't hard. It's in a shock proof case and the case took the damage. Fall wasn't even hard enough to seriously damage the case.
