AnonD-447117, 11 Mar 2016m planning on moving from Samsung Note edge to Lumia 950xl...good move?I am for the first time moving to lumia windows i.e 950 xl. I am currently using s6edge plus and htc one m8. Lets taste. My first windows phone after htc hd2
The Lumia 950 and 950 Xl have a way better camera than the new Samsung Galaxy S7. For it you can check: Talk and Shoot. Very good testing. What I miss in your test (gsmarena) is the dif. comparison at the end of the test with the pictures, low light. There you compare S7 (ISO 250) with Lumia (ISO 500) at almost the same time. Even with this handycap the Lumia is almost better. Do not compare shutter time but ISO balanced. Then the Lumia rocks. But maybe Sammy and iPhone have always to win??
AnonD-514500, 14 Mar 2016Definitely, it will be a good move. Windows 10 devices are way better than any other devices.Especially the updates that the phone gets regularly

Anonymous, 12 Mar 2016IMO Yes. Great Hardware.Software awesome once everything eventually configured. All phones hav... morei have a choice of Nexus 6p and Lumia 950xl....i want to experience the windows OS..Coz i like it on my desktop
AnonD-447117, 11 Mar 2016m planning on moving from Samsung Note edge to Lumia 950xl...good move?Not a wise move.. Stay with note.. Because the performance you get in 950xl is nowhere near to that of note5. If you want new experience and can sacrifice performance then go. I'm using 730 from last one year. I'm happy with the performance of it compared to android phone in the same price category. Compare before moving..

When I purchased this phone I was looking forward to the change from the ios platform.
I wasn't going to let my approx $800 of app purchases deter me. The family have iPad's after all.
First impression: I couldn't put it down. So many options and customizations. Great fun but then, when it came to setting up contacts and the calendars. It took me considerable time to work out how to delete and import people, and my outlook account held information online that didn't sync for up to 30 minutes to my phone. It wasn't an easy task to set up or a great welcome to the 950XL W10 OS.
After 3 weeks I have a better feeling for the phone. It lacks some work related apps which is annoying. But that's the developers choice.
I still wouldn't recommend this phone for a non technically minded person though. Just like using a windows PC, you need a fairly good understanding of how to navigate your way around and how to troubleshoot any issues. For example when receiving a message from an unknown caller, adding the number to a new contact required a cut and paste as apposed to it prompting to create one from just tapping on the number. I've been spoon fed for too long. Also when manually creating a calendar event, I constantly get an instant pop up reminder that the time is now due. It then creates a non titled event and disappears into the calendar abyss. Maybe these things I need more lessons on too, however my point is: Unless you love fiddling with your phone and playing with settings. Id stay with something else.
On a positive note, I think the good outweighs the bad.
It produces outstanding photos and videos. Audio input/output quality no issues.
When the battery eventually goes flat. Plug it in and your contactable in seconds as opposed to my old iPhone Very fast charging. Love it. Wireless charging if you want it too. Not for me!
Live tiles on the Lumia look great too, and are a refreshing change.
There's no lag. Not that you'd expect it with this phones specs.
Overall I enjoy this phone and I'm more than happy to keep it and show it off however, if I bought one for another family member, Id never leave the house again due to the setup and initial troubleshooting assistance they'd require.
This is where the competitors can rightfully boast their "It just works" slogan. Bells and whistles my elderly mother can easily use. (almost).
NEW UPDATE FOR LUMIA 950XL!!!!!
This update brings the build up to .164. Check it out!
Thank you Microsoft for keeping up the updates to the OS.
I bought a lumia 950xl in Italy in on February 8. I have never met a problem. The phone is fast. Web browsing is smooth. Camera is great. I can tell you lots of positive things. Didn't I have any difficulties? Of course I did. For example, if you are texting, you can't see how many characters left. I can't save people on phone or sim. Maybe I couldn't find them. It is not easy to delete people. It doesn't have a video call option. I think it is the biggest deficiency. My overall opinion is that I like my phone. I used an android phone for 5 years, it may not be used as easy as an android but I don't think I will change my phone for a long time.
