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.

Anonymous, 11 Mar 2017I have been using this phone for quite a while now and I honestly never thought I'd be saying ... moreThe overheating issue is common on all Snapdragon 810 phones.
It's even worse on OnePlus 2 and Xperia Z5. The overheating issues I faced on this phone is the very reason I switched to Alcatel Idol 4S Windows.

This would be nice to become reality:
I have been using this phone for quite a while now and I honestly never thought I'd be saying this but........it has become such a disappointment now. Suddenly it's hot, freezing like 5 times a day, im unable to type in WhatsApp frequently and I have reset and recovered the device multiple times already. I love lumias and it was great when Nokia was doing them but now I really need a replacement for this device......there is no surface phone. I have finally made up my mind to switch and say goodbye to Microsoft. Any suggestions as to which device would be a great replacement?
The 950 XL is absolutely the best all round Smartphone I have used to date.
Windows 10 is fantastic and I have two 950's one for personal use the other for Business.
Battery life is far better than any Samsung - I had a number over the years and only one I can really give a nod to is the Galaxy Note 3.
kenn.b, 08 Mar 2017Just try and update it to it's latest build I did. But it seems it improves other things but the battery life.
I bought this device 10 days ago. After using it for 46 hours, I found its battery drained 1% on each 2 minutes, while there's no application running in background, brightness level was set to "darker", 4G was on, typing on the phone was the only task I was doing with this device. The speed of my Microsoft Lumia 950 XL was also relatively slow compares with my Sony Xperia Z3+ which uses the same processor.
Conrad, 04 Mar 2017I won't exactly call it a masterpiece. I recently switched from 950 XL to Alcatel Idol 4S Wind... moreGreat hear that other brands build phones with win 10 mobile systems, don't knew this phone before. Last week a buyed the 950XL for about 339 dollar (324 EUR) in a shop near by me. Branding free, SimLock Free, NetLock Free. I think the different is not very much, for me the 950XL is the better choice, it depends on each individual.
RevoltecMan, 03 Mar 2017Just a masterpiece of microsoft. No more or less. Hope that microsoft does this again.I won't exactly call it a masterpiece. I recently switched from 950 XL to Alcatel Idol 4S Windows which cost me just $288 from T-Mobile store. Needless to say it's a better Windows 10 Mobile device than 950 XL.
RevoltecMan, 02 Mar 2017Which Browser do you exactly mean? Can you post the Store Link, please!OK, i found out what browser you mean, not nessesary to post it, furthermore it's not allowed to refer apps, sorry for my question. And yes i have this app in use for a long time, it's really the best alternative browser in store, although egde is for me the safest and most powerfull one.
Just a masterpiece of microsoft. No more or less. Hope that microsoft does this again.
