agi, 30 Oct 2015Is this an octa core or dual core?Octacore... Who makes dual core flagship? Oh, wait... Apple, with Iphone 6...
Dual = 2
Quad = 4
Hexa = 6
Octa = 8
Lumia 950 is hexacore. The last Lumia flagship with dualcore was 925 released two years ago...

But removable battery phones for clever,smart people.Hope you try to understand.
I like a phone with removable battery and card slot for heavy users.
I really like the specifications of the phone but am little disapppointed with its removable battery.i believe it should have been more better if Microsoft makes it non removable.
Very impressed they have stayed with the poly carbonate body, respect to them. Just ask your self this question, how many motorcycle and bicycle helmets are made of this and why.
RandomDude, 27 Oct 2015So is it true that Lumia 950 will be able to support google play? I heard it somewhere but wa... moreNo it won't support it. The so called project "astoria" is for the developers, to port their android /ios apps to windows phone with minimum efforts.
To better sell this phone they should be more clear about project ~astoria soon, otherwise can people just wait if it turn out any good, so it would mean low profit with this phone as with lumias in last years.

The 950xl is a very good one. The problem is to know were Micosoft is going? Do they will continue on smartphones Market?

Eaven knowing they are goig to lauch the surface smartphone ( with sd820 or the intel one) we still dont know what they are going to do!!!! This is the problem that Mr Nadela put us on!!!!!!
techmaniac84, 25 Oct 2015Hey There,
I am quite interested in this Phone, never had Windows 10 phone before.
- is ... more"- is it true that it will be able to run IOS and Android apps in the not too distant future?"
Well, not exactly. They launched something called the bridge program. What it does is that it helps the app DEVELOPERS to quickly port over their apps from android or ios platform with minimal changes. They added an android sub-system which will help translate the operations in android to operations in windows. The case of ios is actually better, the ported app is actually more compatible.
Proof of this concept was candy crush saga (yes, it was missing from windows platform until recently). It's devs, King, used the ios bridge to port the ios version of their game over to windows platform, that too in a 'universal' app, which will work across all windows devices from mobiles to desktops.
TL;DR: It will make it easier for apps to jump in from ios and android
"- Windows 10 has no problems with mkv, and flash right? Whatsap...spotify etc? "
If I recall right, somebody tried playing mkv on the 950XL in the store and it was working fine. Either way, you do have VLC on windows platform ;) About whatsapp, it is available, so is spotify :) The whole "app gap" isn't as scary as some make it sound. What you can do is check the apps you actually need and search for them on the windows store. Worst case, if not the official app, you will find an awesome client for it :) Except for snapchat, they are useless piece of excreta. They blocked the client 6snap on windows platform.
Hope that answers your questions :)
Video files couldn't be managed on Wd 8.1 OS lumia 730, like grouping and subgrouping of different video categories into different folders eg:- music file, movies file, recorded marriage or birthday parties file, technical know how video file, YouTube video file etc...
Will it be possible on Wd10 OS ?
