Battery life is good. I will get you through the entire day with casual use (phone calls, web browsing and music). Heavy use will drain of course........with serious gaming you would need to charge it at least twice. As for heating issue.........only gets warm when in heavy use and it doesn't get overly hot that you can't touch or hold it. It cools down rapidly enough. For example, getting it warm enough that when you move it from a surface the surface feels warm.....would take about two hours worth of serious gaming on it. But then within 1 - 3 minutes its cool to the touch.
It does get a little warm when in a call after about 30 minutes. Casual use won't affect heating at all. Using WhatsApp now and then, a call here and there, it won't be overbearing. As I mentioned, cools down fast.
AnonD-447117, 29 Mar 2016Moto X Force vs Lumia 950 Xl...I am getting a chance to swap my Moto with 950xl...any idea guys?I have 950 XL and s6 active and Droid Turbo and BB passport..... Each are unique phones.... 950 XL has the best OS and most potential... Go for it!!
For users of this phone, you should be sitting here - version: 1511, os build: 10.0.10586.164.
Only one issue I have come across on this build and its whatsapp giving a little trouble resuming after being suspended for about an hour. But once you close it completely and reopen it, it works fine. No freezing or crashing found otherwise.
For something considered unstable and unreliable I would think there would be alot more problems. Give credit where credit is due. For a company trying to add a solid third option to the phone race, yes MS is struggling, but that's only because ppl fear what they don't understand.
Its honestly more reliable and secure than android and updates don't behave anything like IOS.
Well, I see ppl posting utter nonsense here about Windows 10 being a "heavy" os and unstable and unreliable. Really!??! Are you sure you ARE using Windows 10? I have my Lumia 950XL since January and I has frozen twice.....compared to android which freezes at least 5 times a day. As for being a "heavy" os.......i have the tech preview on my lumia 920 and it runs fine. It does get warm when charging but it did that in general. Video playback is better than on 8.1 and battery life is even longer.
Everyone is critical and just want to put down MS and the Windows platform. I mean......has anyone seen the recent problem in IOS which has disabled links in the phone? Apple has yet to even respond to their customers.
Anyway, this is for ppl who actually use Windows 10 on a 950xl. If you have problems, post here. I will do my best to assist with problems. Don't be scared or discouraged by the trolls. Build conference is coming and the Redstone update promises to blow the mind.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2016don"t hurry. Take a working trial for atleast 12hrs. Windows Mobiles are very reliable. and doesn't mess up with creepy applications. Also the Windows 10 Mobile is too great in Build and features,.
Moto X Force vs Lumia 950 Xl...I am getting a chance to swap my Moto with 950xl...any idea guys?
My Lumias [920, 1320, 640xL] are running windows 10 - insider versions....it is unstable like crazy.....video play-back flickers like mickey mouse, hanging like a pregnant bat and overheating...
windows 8.1 update 2 was so stable and smooth////.....why do you struggle to fit a heavy OS in a phone when we need something light, fast, interactive, soft on battery and ...really?
I have been a fan for a long time, my loyalty is being tossed about.
Kindly make your phones easier to manage.....or say somethin....I am giving up on you
kanuto, 19 Mar 2016windows phone are good, but its always too priceyYes, i agree. And at that cost, this 950XL should come with upto 128GB internal memory. What a crazy 32GB?
Clarifications, 21 Mar 2016The 950XL performs much better than the note 5, and is a lot more reliable.Windows 10 Mobile is definetly not "reliable", it is the most unstable OS ever!
Great device.. Loving windows 10.. Great work MS.. Its a phone with good camera, display, performance and decent battery backup.. Its a great value of money..
AnonD-447117, 16 Mar 2016Hey John, where can i find this comparison?Omg noob, more megapixels doesn't mean better camera!

AnonD-514500, 14 Mar 2016Definitely, it will be a good move. Windows 10 devices are way better than any other devices.don"t hurry. Take a working trial for atleast 12hrs.
