love, 13 Feb 2016Hey Dear buy it its a nice phone,I use 1520 n 1320 too. This 950 is a fantastic phone remember... more950 xl is the WORST mobile I've ever used. Nothing works well. Not one Microsoft app works properly. Complete waste of money. The list of things wrong with windows 10 is too long to list here. They have released 1 update in 3 months. It did nothing anyway.

When we can't create a document using continuum feature then what is use of continuum..?? What is the excellent in lumia 950xl..???
See we can't enable ruler in word app for Lumia 950Xl but we can enable ruler in word app for IOS. Is that what excellent according to you..??????????
We can't drag, resize the table. But we can drag, resize the table in word app for IOS. Is that what excellent according to you..???
In word app for lumia 950xl we can't insert flowcharts in any document. is that what excellent according to you.???
Please don't use the excellent word to lumia 950 XL.
When Microsoft is not updating its own apps on its own windows 10 mobile platform then how come other third party app vendors will update there apps on windows 10 mobile platform..??
Microsoft have no concern about windows 10 mobile OS usears but it have too much of concerns to words IOS and android users...
I did extensive comparisons of at least 6 flagship smartphones & I was very impressed with the many technical specs of the Microsoft Lumina 950 XL. So far I'm totally happy with my choice. I'm finding the performance in all aspects to be strong, I like being able to expand the memory up to an extra 200 Gb with a micro sim card & if this phone goes the distance, a feature like being able to just replace the battery is really sensible when it shows signs of reduced capacity.
Nice phone, but good quality applications backup in wd store is still very weak(less than 35% of i store). Even if available, most apps are not upto date / with restriction.

Please people make your review or your experience about the phone so we can either buy or not. Thanks
I wanted a new devise with all my samsung note4 features (removable battery, cardslot for my 200gb microsd and my 128msd, 2k screen) plus something new. I bought it. First day after android was difficult. Today, after 3 weeks of using it? Amazing, great UI, smooth, amazing camera (!!!amazing), beautiful minimalistic design, and the continuum is gorgious for my business life. Well done Microsoft, everybody is jealous.
Ps. many apps are missing but it is so easy to create shortcuts that link you to the original websites.... I feel 3 years ahead from the IOS & Android users...!

I am using the phone as daily driver too and absolutely love the experience. For the size and hardware, it feels perfect in size and weight is awesome (i thank plastic for that while other can complain about it - also not easy to dent like some other "premium" phones. I had lumia 1520 before this one. App gap may not be real but app update is a challenge though as quality of apps is not at par with iOS (I got an iPhone too)

Don't be mistaken. I've tried it myself. What you can't do is inserting a ruler. Try placing your finger on the cell you want to resize.

m using my 2nd lumia but first under the Microsoft brand. honestly my experience with all the mokias i've use iI still regard it up there with the best phone maker. still rate the N8 as the best phone hands down. in my second week of using the 950 XL I'm so disappointed I wish all this happened withing my first 7 days as I would have returned it immediately. problem is i had run out of my monthly data bundles. from the 1st of Feb I've found my self charging the phone numerous times like charging is in fashion. I wish I hadn't waited this long for such a f*** of a phone, the phone is always hot which means that there's an app continuously working in the background and I've switched all background apps and the problem hasn't been resolved. Microsoft have failed me. i'm very,very disappointed in this 950XL. i just hope i'm the only one with such an experience
If they get 10 right, will beat Iphone any day hardware! oh the waiting game!!!

They recive more money from apple then from it's ownl platform... Keep in mind, Microsoft has been always side by side with apple, hack, they even took them out of dust for about two times... So, as long as ms is, apple will be supported not to fall. As they tend to always do.
Why why why and why Microsoft is not updating it's own word, excel, PowerPoint, apps on its windows 10 mobile OS...????
Why microsoft word, excel, PowerPoint app for iOS is better then windows 10 mobile OS..??
In lumia 950xl we can't resize or alter the table size, like we can do in word app for iOS..
In lumia 950xl we can't insert ruler, we can do it on word app for iOS.. And many things..

Strange part is I also own a Blackberry and I did manage to download Open office on my BB which works perfectly and can store your docs in windows docx format which is cool, the worse part is Microsoft know they suck at their feature list of the office app 95% of the features on older devices and the new version too yet they do nothing to change it. If it wasn't for the camera I would have left the Microsoft stable a few years back.
