That way I like the Nokia N900 (I still have mine, to this day use it when I wanna hack into itsbitsy stuff like my brother's android phone password.) I'm not a hacker but learning stuff. Coming back to you, I'm not sure if you really own a Windows phone or any today's generation phones anymore. I'll tell you what are the brands I've owned, Blackberry, Windows 5 & 6, Some Android phones for a short time and linux based N900 (still own it ;) :p) and symbian for good half of my growing up days.
I have extensively used Windows phone from their hay days, the same goes with Blackberry and Symbian too, Symbian was awesome back in the 90's I can't deny that you had more apps than ever it had short falls too but yeah it was great and offered something that not many phone in those hay days offered only reason being 70% of the market share then was Symbian devices both the low end and the Mid & high end devices. Slowly they lost traction in the market, motorola and Google then came out with Linux and eclair OS motorola failed miserably because Linux wasn't many people's cup of tea the phone did really good in Europ and South East asia the most, what Google offered then was rich Media options and good and very attractive Operating System Interface which Symbian couldn't. Blackberry then was still the King after Nokia and Symbian, they did very well thanks to their good security offerings (True, to this day & the future.) People will change as the product they see visually appeal to them, Android brought some cool softwares that symbian couldn't offer. Windows was good back then but had low battery issues because the bad tft screens consumed most of the battery and so did the processors, they managed to do the job not many manufacturer's then only Motorola (had 4 devices running windows 5 and 6), Samsung (launched 5 devices), HTC (had more devices running windows 5 to 6.1) then came LG. My first Smartphone back in 2000 with a Blackberry and Nokia E61i then moved to Samsung i780 (Still love the phone for some customization that samsung offered.) then moved to N900, then got the Nokia C7 (it froze and had lot of issues sold it and moved.) to windows for good got myself a LG C900 then I got a BB8520 until I moved to 9810 then to Blackberry Q5 and quickly to Q10 (still own it as my daily driver) and now I own a Nokia Lumia 1520, N900 and Blackberry Q10.
I can't disagree that Symbian was awesome in its day and age but, unfortunately not many Symbian Developer I knew then wanted to pursue developing on Symbian any more and so it died and everybody forgot about it, for the heck of Nostalgia we still talk about those phones that have gone by once in a while that's it. So Sudakar give way to the new OS your free to give your opinion of the OS but, don't think everybody are fools and they'd believe anything you say.

Geo people do care about the security because most people use their phones to keep their password and other sensitive information these days on their mobile devices. There was a time when and still continues some people aren't aware and they are adamant to believe a product like brands like Google cannot be hacked and their identities or the so called sensitive information doesn't reach the wrong hands. You have people who believe anything you tell them and then you have people who would do their research and based on facts make their point clear.
So, don't loose it because of some people say things you dont like or can explain stuff. Aint worth the time. Let them believe what they like, you impart knowledge if your aware let them believe what they want to.....
Proofy, 30 Jan 2016https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_(operating_system)
there you goProofy Cyogen mod is open source. If your so worried about security get yourself a Blackberry Passport or Priv (their servers have never been hacked till date.) With reference to iOS and other all their system has been hacked and information have been leaked multiple times this include iOS. Open source of closed source its the security codes that matter the most. You realized that Ubuntu(Linux) is open source and has never been hacked or attacked, check with your sensible friends first before you post something.
a code is written like your building the foundation of your house if the foundation is weak its going to show and when it does it will collapse the same is in the case of coding.

They just want their phone working, and can do all the stuffs they want in their phone.
Proofy, 30 Jan 2016https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_(operating_system)
there you goDude, open source software means.. Anyone can reprogram the software code other than the main developer team..android is an open source
Windows phone n apple IOS are closed source software only the developer can reprogram the codes..
Its more secure than open source software platforms.

But... moreMail client is more than good for me..Web browser also works fine no problems at all.You people are asking too much...all you can find wrong with this phone are some small app gaps that will be fixed.I bought this phone bacause it looks nice hardware i will not even speak about...But if your main reason to give minus to this phone is not having unified mail client and some web browser than you are right this is not phone for you.And my friend i use it as a
daily driver and i dont have a single problem that this people here ae speaking about.I folowed instructions how to setup the phone and thats it...no restarts...no overheating..no app crash nothing...iris scanner works fine even my memory card works fine.
My friend buy yourself laggy Android or Locked UP iOS.
But there is no reason to give minus to something what you or dont know how to use or you didnt set up properly.

Google made billions from android so far.
Lumia 950 and 950XL does not work with Verizon, I actually had to return my Lumia 950 after two weeks to Microsoft store (online). Verizon and Microsoft need to sitdown and negociate.

As for heating yes under heavy load then also at times it goes warm for no reason
rollin, 26 Jan 2016Stop trolling, they have those apps in the Windows Store Whats the use?. You cannot take backup of the installed apps to the memory card or download the windows app setup files. Android is better in this regard. Symbian is also ok.
micro950, 28 Jan 2016Is 950xl supports both white and black themes as were on win 8.1 phones?Yes it does support and I think it is one of the better features.. Helps using phone in dark on bed ☺

This is great device. Had it for a week and i have no regrets. Love Office on the go and battery life is seemingly better than my 1520. Can get warm at times under heavy load but this is more of an OS issue than hardware failing to handle the pressure as there are some apps that run a loop even when closed. But this is also rare. If only Microsoft stepped up their marketing though.
