Very happy with my first 8 days using the 950 XL. Excelent camera, very fast device, outstanding screen. Some normal little problems with the new windows 10 mobile, but nothing that can´t be solved i suppose. Actually the new OS has great improvements. New native apps that allows to handle most of regular usage with inproved UI. The app store seems to be growing due to universal platform (still is the main disadvantage). The back cover is very low quality, i´m watching for alternatives since it can be replaceded, instead of covered with a bulky one over it. Continium is a great experience even if i'm not shure to be using it so often. Not going back to Android or iOS.

Anonymous, 06 Dec 2015Finger print sensor missing !!Finger print sensor is old tech... 950 amd 950xl got iris scanner.. Its scans ur iris and unlocks the device.. U don't need to press Any button..
Keeping OS topic Aside
Lets see what MS has done.
They made a device which has hardware made with huge cost cuttings ,it has only 32gb internal memory,only 3gb ram (i know 32gb Memory and 3gb ram is more than enough for a average user but rightnow i am just plainly compairing it to other better compititers)
(lumia 950XL also has no metal built i mean al the construction is pure plastic built & this one i hate the most) &
even MS knows that no wud buy there Lumia 950 XL for a price they are asking right now that is why they are also bundling there windows Continuum Dock worth $100 with the smartphone.& i guess they will also follow Sony's footsteps means asap this preoder offer will be over MS will stop giving Continuum Dock and will reduce the 950 XL prices asap by almost $90 to $100 .
when please could u tell lumia 740 will come? its to embarresd that you cant launch fast..we all wait a gud phone related lumia with pwerfull cameras and battery
It's actually rated to support 2TB MicroSD cards. Which means storage wise it's future proof.

Quite better than others, the problem is apps are still behind. Though they are being developed in Windows 8.1
Lumia Denim 2 update (Better) still apps need more & More improvements.
Please bring those apps to a better extent & seriously work on it.
AnonD-354074, 04 Dec 2015can't blame Microsoft, tweet on social media to developers of those appsAlso i would like to see Microsoft in No.1 or 2nd position in the smart phone market. I hope MS or developers will do something seriously for top applications.
AnonD-354074, 04 Dec 2015can't blame Microsoft, tweet on social media to developers of those appsI am not blaming MS. I know that developers have to make the application for WIN10. But if I can buy a iPhone with 10000000apps in the same price range (Maybe I nee only 10 application but its available in the store) so why i spend the same money for only call & texting facility. As i said before I like Microsoft/WIN 10 but the same time i have to care about my usage.
I've just bought it. It is going to be my first windows phone.I'm comming from a LG G2. I just hope that alle those comments on not existing apps won't hold. I'm not a huge app consumer and as I can see,there is only 2 apps which I can not get of the apps I have now, we will see...

The overheating problems with the snapdragon 810 is related to a bug in the design of the chip. This bug has been fixed in the latest revision of the chip (read on wiki), the liquid cooling is only to distribute the heat evenly, to prevent "hot spots" on the phone. So, the overheat problem is solved by the snapdragon manufactor, and is history!, not By Microsoft "just adding more cooling" to the phone. And the 950 do "NOT" have liquid cooling!!!
Liquid cooling is working, it seems. This phone only gets warm, doesn't get hot. It has single hand mode when you hold down the Windows button. Pretty cool. Skype and even Groupme's group are built into the Messaging app. Continuum mode works great.
