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.

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.
