I have had several Lumias, the 800, 820, 920 and now the 950 XL dual sim.
It is the best and the worst phone I have ever owned.
It gets so hot it is uncomfortable to hold, and that is just browsing or using sat nav.
The battery does not last a full day, and I only make maybe 3 minutes of phone calls, send 20 texts, 20 minutes of sat nav and maybe 5 minutes of browsing.
This is the only phone I have had that has died on me during the above usage.
In addition, the dual sim does not work. If I turn off sim 1 then sim 2 will work, but not both at the same time. Useless.
I have a £50 Doogee phone that will let me run sat nav for 2 hours, plus both dual sims work with whatever network, and if I don't use much sat nav as is normal, it will last 2 days.
There is absolutely no excuse for a £500 phone to behave so poorly.
I love the screen, I love the Windows OS, but there does not appear to be a good phone to go with it from anyone.
Do I really have to switch to Android? And a £50 phone to get what I need?
this mobile is very faster then other mobile....
features, screen size, operating system is awesome,. guys buy this mobile and make youe life better.......
AnonD-218710, 02 Jun 2016MS has announced close down and thousands of layoff, closing the mobile division. Bye ByeMS Mobile is not dead. Stop believing the haters, and get some facts.
Agyemang, 13 Jun 2016To read that Microsoft Mobile has folded up is a big disappointment to some of us. I love MS p... moreWhat are you talking about? MS Mobile did not "fold up". Stop believing all those hater articles. MS is still producing mobile phones (though not the Lumia line, no flip phones) and MS is still supporting Windows 10 mobile. They're just pulling back because they want other manufacturers to focus on the hardware so MS can focus on the software. Having said that MS will still be producing some phone hardware of their own, but not as much as previously.
I find this phone slower than a 1GB RAM (Lumia 540 dual sim) i have held, just annoying plus the restarts that happen every now and then.

Understand u were pick pocketed, I did the same. Shop keeper was not acceptable to keep my set on free, saying his client's wud be disturbed.
Anonymous, 06 Jul 2016does this phone have led notification ?No only glance screen.Led notification is now outdated .Glance screen display is the best one and more useful than led notification.
guys. please don't buy it, so many problem I'd face ...while using so hot, buttons and back cover is not fit as it sized auto shutup
please consider 640xl dual sim . only the restriction is with the number of apps available.
been using it almost one year now. fully satisfied after the windows 10 upgrade.
Most Idiocy by Microsoft 810 was already notorious for heating, with internal pipeing, a shortcut was chosen. Now system plus set plastic is boiling. 750$ worth mobile, gone to rotten!
who believ ?? pixel size : 1.071 not 1.12 ? darker ?nokia 830 (1.102 um) and 1020 (1.141 um) lighter? not 930 same 1.071 um...
Well, following my comment, I receive a second handset, and for the second time my life "became hot" again.....so I sent it back again....for good!
It seems I've got to go for Android....big disapointment
Hello good people!
Using 950 xl dual makes my life hot....
Hot hands and hot phone...like a frying pan experience.
Iris scanner is like a laser light, It's damaging my eyes.

Dont buy Microsoft handsets, i brought this lumia 950 xl ds for whooping 57k, and now as it is water damaged the microsoft service centers are not providing any service they are telling we cant fix your handset, Apple and Samsung can fix any damn handset even if it is completely water damaged and microsoft cant even service my handset even when i am ready to pay the repair cost.really poor service from Microsoft.
I received yesterday may Lumia 950 XL with continum pack. I was very enthusiastic for the new device but rapidly it became frustation. Just after 10 minutes charging the mobile was absolutelly hot, not only the rear plastic box, but also the screen. Later I made a second trial, and it happened again. I let it cool down and started exploring the phone, and with this simple used it got hot again. I´m now sending it back for analisys. Any of you have an opinion about this? Is this a general issue with this specific model or has been happening with other devices?
