This is frankly the worst phone ive ever had. Ive had it since it was released and up until very recently it has worked ok but the battery now suddently de charges, and leaving it to charge overnight gives me about 10 minutes of use maximum. Not to speak of the complete lack of apps in the app store. I would also like to point out i barely use my phone other than for calls and texting and the occasional game to pass time by. Really i dont know if this is only a problem for me but it really ruins my day when i get a call, and as i answer it my phone runs out of charge. I do not reccomend this phone to anyone purely from personal experience. Victor
Microsoft please do something k Android app will work on windows10 phone
Tell Microsoft to not unscramble the drawer/menu. It looks like a menu for Rootkit or Keygen for pirated games haha! But what's shocking is that is it Windows 10 lolol. :O
I used to use windows phone for too many years but i switched back to IOS and android due to lack of apps
now i want to return back to windows phone but my question to you guys as recent users
FB messenger now supporting voice calls or not
skype still freezing also or not
give me your feedback about apps please
Greg, 08 May 2017Although I was skeptical but still I went ahead and bought the factory unlocked Alcatel Idol 4... moreI would like to give the Alcatel Idol 4S Windows a try, but sadly this phone is not available in my country, let alone for $275... I really like that phone and the design and that price, amazing. So I stick with my 930 still. Using it almost for three years.

It's even worse on OnePlus 2 an... moreAlthough I was skeptical but still I went ahead and bought the factory unlocked Alcatel Idol 4S Windows from Amazon for $275. Seriously I'm amazed by the quality of the device. No overheating issues, fast and fluid performance, excellent RAM management, clear and loud stereo speakers, and beautiful design.
It's leagues ahead of my 950 XL in terms of features and performance except for camera. I'm seriously stunned by the quality of this new Windows 10 Mobile phone which costs cheaper than a ZTE Axon 7.
I have had the phone for around 6 months with no major problems, It is a joy to use. Currently I am in the process of buying a new phone and moving back to the Android platform as the Win 10 platform doesn't have all the apps I want.
Big problems with wifi connection after creators update. I have formatted the device twice but the problem still persists. Anyone with this bug?
windows phone will back and lumia brand will changed into surface phone . it will be different architecture than lumia phone. that is the main reason why some apps removed or crashed in os. there is a big plan .
I have been using the Lumia 950XL for about 6 months now and so far so good. I haven't had the crashing or reboot problem that some users seem to have. Maybe I am just lucky. It's a shame though that MS no longer sell the Lumia series phone as I was looking to get one for my wife.

I have been using Lumias since the Lumia 800 and have either used or help fix phones from Lumia 900, 920, 930, 520, 530, 535, 820, 830, 620, 625, 640, 640xl, 950, 950xl, 1020 and 1520. Unfortunately Microsoft has been a total let down. WhatsApp crashes, freezes the phone, forces it to reboot, black screen for hours, even stops working while typing (950xl). Now to hear Creators update gonna thin out what's left, I have decided after 7 years of Windows to switch to Android. It is truly sad to see how Microsoft neglects it's loyal users, customers and developers. After this post, I suggest others to leave as well as with past experiences with Microsoft, they will leave us high and dry.
If anyone is looking for a good suggested replacement phone......i would recommend the Honor series. I got myself an Honor 8 and it is honestly and truthfully faster than the 950xl, runs Microsoft's own apps better than the 950xl and even lasts longer in terms of battery with a screen which in my opinion looks better. Loud speaker sounds a little hollow, but it will definitely get the job done.
Sadly Microsoft will eventually give up on the mobile thing........everyone is wondering what's happening but this is just typical Microsoft. I loved what they tried to do, but they do not focus on their own. Farewell Lumia, u will be missed dearly :'(
Chintu, 29 Mar 2017Is the Lumia 950xl support external mass storage devices like pen drive? Yes it does, in fact all Windows 10 Mobile devices do.
You can even attach a USB Gigabit Ethernet adapter via OTG if you want, that works too with Windows 10 Mobile.
