I have been an android man until I got hold of my Lumia 950 xl. At first I did find it difficult to navigate, after 1 day I got used to it an I love this phone. The mistake I had was that I was expecting the Lumia to be like the android and I believe most people do that is why I found it difficult to navigate.

Anonymous, 10 Oct 2017https://www.theverge.com/2017/10/9/16446280/microsoft-finally-admits-windows-phone-is-deadI'm on stable ring so I still expect some fun, new existing updates 2y after is also great. Actually the most important things that made me buy this is haac mics(up to 145dB) better by 10dB than the rest, also price is lower than similarly specced androids. Also got 1020 before, still useful, great for low light zoom in, 38mp wallpapers. Kittens in 38Mp looks especially good. Would take Sony if it would come with even better camera and better mics. Camera is priority to me, but I got to say this insider thing, giving feedbacks got its own charm. Shame next device will be probably prices 999+.

Some apps are missing so I use also old android phone, but I like this integrity with everything in one place, syncd with desktop. Its like pixel or iphone, but as W10 user its for me better. Also mind that its more camera centric than rest of competitors with own OS(from apple, google) - it got big aperture &sensor size &4 haac mics &wide fov, great colors... Its still worthy opponent also considering price, but I guess not best overall performer anymore. I consider it kind of test phone for microsoft, but its great titanic for me, good enough to swim half/year until new flagship.

Une, 21 Aug 2017My phone spontaneously turns off, do you know anyone why? What problem I have :( Please help meei have the same problem before with my lumia 950xl, when i unlock the screen it turn off by it self. sometimes when phone on sleep double tape to wake up it suddenly turn black screen. i've changed the battery and the problem still present, i changed with another batter it works great now. no sudden turn off when i unlock it or when i use it. i guess the problem with the battery. i ordered batteries from amazon two pieces, one of them dose not fix the problem but the second did, i guess its matter of battery issue. good luck
Dude_X, 12 Sep 2017Just replace the battery.

I have never used a stupid phone like this. battery is a joke....from morning till evening with very little use battery is drained...if i switch one app to another it will switch off, some times it will switches its on otherwise i have to remove the battery manually and connect to the charger.Cant predict its functions it ill do anything from restarting to getting froze. i am not a person to write reviews but if i am forced to do it. Never will buy anything from Microsoft, my contract will finish in November, cant wait for that. Bought this rubbish phone with huge expectation all in vain...I am not at all happy with this crap phone

I bought this for 750 - preorder when it was launched. First it started with wifi connectivity issue. New updates added new bugs. Now I almost regularly have to remove the battery to restart it. It just seems stuck. Browser load first time causes the browser to be frozen. I need to close and reload the browser after which it works fine. Using browser itself drains the battery. Only thing I kept with this for so long (now 2 years ) is because I paid a premium for this phone and I find windows phone to be best for email handling. Lot of apps have stopped support- amazon, bank of America etc. Last time I buy a Windows phone. Switching to one plus 5 in a few days.

I also like that original hw and sw, white on black, w10(some apps even work lile in full w10). Even coming new device will have full one, what to hate? They also take important camera features as main features, not like Apple 1/3" sensor, mono audio. Even now there is no competitor to 145dB mics, not to mention 4 of them, colors pop out, recordings go over 5, 10 minutes up to hour, not like some. System I got is stable version, well it was not meant to survive anyway, at least touch&pocket style of OS will survive. What I hate though is that there is no store in my country. Well it was util recently, until they went totally savvy, and closed it. Hope they change that, we got apple everywhere, samsung and soon xiaomi. About time they come, maybe surface phone will change that.

Kinda late, i can clearly understand the people that did not want to stick with it. But well, i am one who likes "digital trouble" perfection being something i would probably get bored of in a matter of mounts.
AnonD-70078, 12 Aug 2017has windows 10 mobile improved any in the last year, I had this a year ago and it was simply awfulWindows 10 mobile now is at a good stage, a huge among of bugs were tracked down. I know what you mean about awful, but well, i remained with it just cause, i do not like sharing info with google, and android or ios look dated as hack. When Symbian looked like that android was not even born. Windows 10 has something to it i just can't abandon. The cleanness of the UI is just marvelous
Une, 21 Aug 2017My phone spontaneously turns off, do you know anyone why? What problem I have :( Please help meeThe problem with your 950 XL might be the battery. Pull the battery out and feel it out. Put it on a flat surface and try to spin it. If it spins, your battery is swollen, which means it's busted and needs to be replaced.
