fadio, 28 Dec 2015Camera great.audio great .app great .but battery bad I noticed that after signing up for the insider, I had an update that kept failing causing it to continuously download over and over, burning up the battery pretty quick. Once I backed out, the problem went away. If your seeing your battery get consumed, really look over the phone and see what activity is going on. BTW, the update was failing, because I have the international single sim version, and the update was meant for the US Dual sim edition.
1 is this phone good?
2 can I go on Facebook on it
3 Cani get my emails on it
NavY, 23 Dec 2015Is it true that this phone and the 950 , has the wifi issues?No. There are no WIFI issues on 950XL.
Sandeep, 24 Dec 2015Hi guys! Please help me, did Lumia 950XL has 4k video recording feature and Call recording fea... moreYes and yes. 4K video recording and Call recording are available on the Lumia 950XL
gtr, 24 Dec 2015The note 3 is few years old, the lumia 950 is brand new. See any differences?Diffrence that i saw tiat there no diffrence. The note 3 is too old and 950XL is new their features are same.The Microsoft using old technology.THAT I NOT LIKE IT.
I am getting my new phone next month and am considering either this phone or Note 5.
I have use Lumia 1020 before. The camera quality was superb! I love the fact that i can do lots of post editing after the shot. Like cropping without loosing details thanks to the huge sensor. But the shot to shot time really turn me off.
To me, i do not use much app even when i was using android phone (S3).
I was able to find the essential apps like Facebook, Whatsapp and YouTube in windows store. But during my time with 1020, all these apps have many limitations compare to their android version. Such as Whatsapp was unable to share video from the gallery and YouTube and Facebook was really slow. And for Whatsapp you can only share photo by accessing it via whatsapp only. What i mean is, you cannot go to photo gallery and choose photo to share via whatsapp. But later on Whatsapp did come up with enhancement that i can finally share video.
Another thing i don't like about 1020 was the keypad. I can type really fast when using android phone (S3 before 1020 and Note 3 after 1020). I am not sure if this is Android feature or Samsung UI feature. The keypad recognize the whole sentence i use often and suggest the same sentence the next time i type the first word.
My 1020 just don't do that. Even the word suggestion was like crap.
But i am still very tempted to get 950 XL. It have micro SD card slot and the camera is awesome. I hope the shot by shot timing improve in this one.
My only headache is the keypad word suggestion... i hope they have improve it since i really type a lot.
Prit, 20 Dec 2015Hello friends, I am new user of Microsoft (Windows) phone. I feel irritating with using this p... moreHello prit, (your username is familiar.)
Your are a liar! How can you be using a phone that has only been released in less than two months, three months ago? The phone is yet to be released globally as at today.
WhatsApp on windows phone has all the features and even more compared to android or iOS, you can do everything and anything with WhatsApp on windows phone, once again you have lied.
When you say the is shortage of apps on windows phone, please be specific, and tell us those apps that are missing. There may not be an official app, but there are always and certainly third party apps and plenty alternatives, so my friend you've lied again (I am waiting for you to mention the names of the missing apps). However there are also some apps that are exclusive only to windows phone e.g. Fantasia painter, siege fall, and many other apps made by windows for only windows phone, you can't base your judgment about a phone on apps alone, but on performance as well.
Backing up apps? With your sign on your can switch from one device to another, and still retain all your apps, dear friend you've lied once more.
You can rename your email addresses on windows phone at any time, more so, you can also pin any email to the start home page.
When you want to post say what's true and real not lies.
From your comments, I personally think that you've never used a windows phone in your life, you're just trolling.
Hi guys! Please help me, did Lumia 950XL has 4k video recording feature and Call recording feature...
raihan.bd, 19 Dec 2015hello 950XL users, i am a 640XL user and have few questions.. 1. did MS improve their app st... moreYou should realize one thing first. Microsoft can't improve the store, because the apps aren't written by Microsoft. If Microsoft write an app, it's not official app. On that matter, no, there's no Official app for Facebook, because Facebook didn't wrote one, you have one written by Microsoft that I have to say looks almost like the official app on iOS and Android (more the Android one), and is by far better than the one on Windows 8.1. You'll NEVER be able to use Android/iOS apps directly..... Project Astoria and don't remember the name of the project for iOS apps translate THE UNCOMPILED CODE of an already written for iOS/Android app so it can be included in the Windows Store, and that has to be done by THE PROGRAMER who wrote the program, it's not a virtual machine that will make your phone work like crap and make you switch to Android/iOS to use the app natively. If you ask if there's official app for YouTube or any other Google service, the answer is no. If you ask "Why?", the answer is "Ask Google, not Microsoft, they are the once supposed to write those apps, other wise they won't be official". If you ask why Microsoft don't write proper app like they do for Facebook, the answer is, because Google wants the YouTube app to work in HTML5, HOWEVER the app for iOS and Android doesn't work in HTML5, it still uses Flash, and if Google are to write app according to their own demands, that means that Google has to write an app for opposing platform, with features that the app for their own platform doesn't have. Besides, Microsoft showed some dirty Google shirts some time ago and Google aren't very happy with that.
Io84, 18 Dec 2015Haha I have A Samsung Note 3 it has most of the above issues The note 3 is few years old, the lumia 950 is brand new. See any differences?
Windows is unfinished and cannot compete with the IOS or Android flagships. Everyone who says different has not used (like for a few months, not for 10 seconds i na a shop) not any other flagship than WP. I used windows for like 4 years with 4 different phones and it was always lagging behind. The last I got was a 930 and first was the purple tint display issue, internet explorer is the worst browser in history of mankind, the apps just arent good enough,the battery life sucked always, with the 950 its even worse. Facebook, whatsapp, viber, skype, twitter, the internet in global are years behind on windows. My galaxy edge plus eats these 950 and xl anytime a day.
These phones are just good cameraphones, nothing more. All the microsoft apps work better on my android than they did on WP, there is no single reason for me to go to a store and pick up an microsoft phone.
raihan.bd, 19 Dec 2015hello 950XL users, i am a 640XL user and have few questions..
1. did MS improve their app st... moreyes, the application store is a lot better... and more and more applications are arriving everyday, these are official applications too....
and with every new phone windows 10 lumia 950XL will get better and better with each update... iPhone was the same...... the media just like to pick on windows for some reason... its not that bad like they say.
Prit, 20 Dec 2015Hello friends, I am new user of Microsoft (Windows) phone. I feel irritating with using this p... moreeverything i say here regards to Prit
starting with shortage of apps - it seems really funny that you say shortage. I mean the store offers all the apps necessary for a normal user (even hardcore gamer).what apps you usually use?.Facebook,Twitter,Watsapp,Skype,Messenger to send messages.You play usual games like candy crush,Temple run, even hardcore games like dead trigger 2, Modern combat 5,
n others.you get entire microsoft office 365 for free.
talking about watsapp - you use watspp for messaging and the UI is user friendly.
talking about learning about using new type of phones- u dont drive a car without learning it
battery backup is far more better than any android device . If you are talking about windows 10 even when it is officially flagged in lumia 950 it is still under development stage
still battery backup is around 1-1.5 days.
speaking about not buying windows and buying android- i was fed up by using an andorid phone so i bought a windows phone to try a new thing and i loved windows .
