Excellent phone. Have all the practical features for a top flagship.
One thing I do not understand. Why it is so expensive. Are not all the phones made in China?
If Microsoft want to capture more of the market and establish themselves as top smartphone company, they must attract the normal customers not only the rich people. I wish I can have this phone, but I can not afford it.
The best smartphone I ever have used, previously I used iphone 6 plus, galaxy s5 etc. Best camera, iris scanner, screen res. Powerful OS when compared to android and ios (not in the sense of app). Am addicted to the lumia 950 phone actually.
Purchased 32 Gb Memory Card Class 10............... Now My 90% Applications With Games In Memory Card............... In Android U Can Download Application To Memory Card (Only U Can Movie For Some Applications Not All).................. But In Windows Ur Movies, Ur Games, Ur Whatsapp Pics, Camera Pics, Ur Download Pics, Ur Saved Pics From Browser or Application, Applications And Nearly 95% All Data U Can Store In Memory Card Which Is Not Possible In Android............ I Used Both Android And Windows Phones But Now Windows Open And Android Have Restrictions :)
MAK74, 04 Jan 2016Microsoft has the talent to ruin their own product, remember that they released Windows Millen... moreDude ..first thing u r not a windows OS fan..i saw the 4k video of ma frnds Lumia 950xl ..it was superb..and the pics too..great clarity on rich capture mode.. I don't give much care on "mails".. But the things u commented about the 20mp cam is wrong..totally wrong.. U r a troller in pure form.
I use 950XLfor 2 weeks now and rather disappointed compared to Lumia 930 I had before.
The phone is slower there are frequent hang ups, the battery endurance is a joke (2-3hrs) and you can fry eggs on the back of the phone when in use. I wonder how long the components will survive this heat exposure.
Can anyone please advise why these issues are happening?
AnonD-354074, 04 Jan 2016Name a smartphone which uses Intel processors.... And there is micro SD option for more storage.Now lets see, Lenovo K800? Been in the smartphone market for years. Next the Motorola Razr i. Then theres Acer Liquid C1. Oh talking about Acer, it's main rival(in my country) the AsusTek Corp releases the Zenfone Series with Intel's chipset. By the fact that Samsung is also using the Intel Atom inside their Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 but I guess thats not included because it's considered as a tablet. If I'm not mistaken Dell also use Intel but I have no idea which model is using it.

Microsoft has the talent to ruin their own product, remember that they released Windows Millennium after 98/95, Vista after XP, and Windows 8 after Windows 7. They did the same stupid move again; they released Windows Mobile 10 after 8.1.
I have been using Lumia 920 since December 2012, it is an AMAZING phone with a beautiful operating system (especially after the latest 8.1 updates). Unfortunately, it became annoyingly slow Â– especially after the updates. So I needed a new phone but I want to continue the beautiful Windows Phone experience, so I bought the Lumia 950 XL, and it was a big mistake.
The least you can say about Windows Mobile 10 is that it is a stupid product. It is not the bugs, but the good things they removed and the stupid things they added (or as they said Â“enhancedÂ”). For example, I connect to multiple emails: Hotmail, Live, Gmail, and my business email. When you receive an email in Windows 8.1, the notification center tells you that you received an email in this inbox (Gmail for example). Unfortunately, in Windows 10 the notification center just says Â“Outlook MailÂ”. You donÂ’t know this email you received is in which inbox. This might not be important to some users, but I am sure it is very important to many, including me. This is just one thing I mentioned in the OS, you will see many annoying things if you use it as your main phone.
One of the things that made me buy this phone is what I read about its great camera. But when I used it, it is really bad. It is a camera they borrowed from a 2000 model. It is not good at all. It has pixilated photos, and wavy videos. I am very, very disappointed. And frankly I donÂ’t advice any one to purchase this phone.
One more thing, did you try Bing Sport and MS Official Facebook App on Windows Mobile 10? Microsoft is a software company, so how on earth they release such applications for their own OS/Hardware? To know the difference, just use them on Windows 10 Mobile and on Windows 8.1 Mobile and see the difference.
I am a big fan of Windows OS in general. I started using Windows Mobile in 2004, but this Windows 10 and Lumia 950 XL was a really bad choice. I should have waited until the next phone.
They should've used an intel processor with this and launched a 64gb and 128gb version. Then, they could've thrown in the dock and wireless charger out of the box for free and kept the price at the same range. That would've killed it.

What is the extension of the setup file (like apk for android)?.

This phone and 550,950 are still not available in January .Is Microsoft stopped mobile shipping.

Your friend might have not upgraded his whatsapp apps for months so it did not support the voice call. I have been using whatsapp voice calling for months in my lumia 532 and 830.
Complete phone .....awasome camera...dual sim..display...
AnonD-20890, 01 Jan 2016Well said. But both Android and and windows phones do not have FM transmitter like in Nokia N7... morewow....someone remember that feature....that an awesome feature....that now not available for high end phones also.............i love that feature in my nokia c7
AnonD-354074, 01 Jan 2016You said you think.... Use a Windows phone then commentI tried calling my friend (from my LG G3 D855) who uses whatsapp and hike in Nokia lumia 735 (green colour). It said : voice calling is not available for this user.
Voice calling worked for all android to android VoIP calls via whatsapp, hike, viber, nimbuzz etc. I am not against Lumia phones. I like carl zeiss lens, OIS etc. I am only against the phones with non user replaceable battery, without memory card slot, limited OS features etc. Ok?. I am the proud owner of Nokias 1280, 5320, N79, N8 and 808. I love the Nokia Symbian's best battery backup phones. I hope even Nokia / Microsoft windows phones rock in battery life.
AnonD-20890, 01 Jan 2016I think whatsapp, viber, hike do not provide voice calling for windows phones till now. Thats ... moreI'm sure you must have owned a Window 7.1 device to make such claims. Because anybody who has the 8.1 devices know even kids know that whatsapp viber offer voice call on 3G, 4G and Wifi like how it works on the Android devices.
I find some dumb ppl of late on gsm arena. Wanna facepalm yo'll.
