"dual sim" is misleading. They should've put a disclaimer that only 1 sim will have 4g while the second sim is max 2g. Unfortunately for me, Canada is pretty much done away with 2g so none of the major providers support 2g and hence I am unable to utilize the dual sim feature.
mixed ,,,, e.g. can it wirelessly charged - I have Nokia 910 wireless charger - seems does not work ...
Cracking n MS 640 35$ 650 90$ has become a ordeal most bad reputable cell. This will also be next failure one.
It's a flopped flagship, mostly outlets returned their stock, only order on orders. Continuum still available which came at launch, price at 450$ flat. Within a Qtr, all due to mishandling by MS now no charm left fr Surface phone launch n 3rd qtr. 810 evil inside then plastic dud body, update stillstill buggy.
What's take on latest update, my whatsapp won't open, need restart. Plastic body white has developed discolored, esp .170 update has not removed all bugs.
Beautiful and may be the problem is Windows 10....in my PC is fair, terrible.
KR, 18 Feb 2016Previous Iphone and Nexus owner - Moved to 650 XL Dual Sim!
I am reading a lot of bad revie... moreThat's a very fair and realistic assessment and it's exactly what I needed to hear to decide on my next business phone.
The phone has good specs compared to other high end, we just need M$ft to make the OS more solid and consistent
Guys what's your take on 170 update, it was already updated on windows insider back, but still has bugs, rap WhatsApp could not load and closes.. Awaiting!
Previous Iphone and Nexus owner - Moved to 650 XL Dual Sim!
I am reading a lot of bad reviews here on the 950 xl dual sim. Well, I have one and it's great for what its meant for. Its not for everyone.
If you want a dual sim phone and productivity is key, this is a great phone. I've had the Iphone 6 and nexus phones, and yes their ios/android platforms are clean and great to have for everyday use (to a degree). But, If you have used "continuum" to use your phone as a computer on a external display, there is nothing out there that is the same. This is nothing like an iphone or android mirroring a screen. It is your phone pushing windows 10 to your monitor for full support. I was just on my 75" 4k last night looking/ editing a excel spreadsheet while syncing with my work email client.
To sum it up: This is a great business+personal phone HANDS DOWN. Yeah before the 107 update, the phone was sluggish/buggy. But after the 107, the phone has been without issue so far, with 2 day battery. Do your research on what you need out of a phone. As I said before, this phone is meant for business with productivity as a key component (Outlook, Office, Continuum, Remote Server Sync, etc) . It is not meant for the average joe consumer.
At last read update started may take a week to notify, 107 build already since Jan window insider, full of bugs, apps start bit close down, too slow, and whatsapp closes as soon started. Battery a day, fed up with this plastic brick. Soc 810 is history, why even consider keeping it.
No updates, No prices slashed in Dubai,India Pakistan as internationaly it's 500$, flat. It's plastic body 810 Soc and infested with bugs. This is 21st century MSoft products even Yankeeism could not save it.
If you want a cheap high-end phone with a beautiful camera and a fresh OS and generally nice UI and don't think it's a big loss that you won't have your old Android/iOS apps on your new phone, definitely get this phone. If not, get something else.

Microsoft mobiles battery backup is very bad compared to other. if they want to survive the market, make high battery backup phones.
Sales tumbled, layoffs more employees, sure sign of closure. Last option to start making Android phone like BB, and got good start too. Already stuck with this monster 950xl and no updates comming nor expected, but no resale even for 300 $ no buyer on eBay, Amazon. Baddest Luck. No ever think of buying their Surface lap too. InsyeadInstead Yoga 4 best
Most unfortunate of MS demise in phone industry, it's window 10 upgrade has doomed it. 10 million laptops upgraded free rest no cell except launched but they too are buggy, no update in site after twice announced but withdrawn. So be it IOS android only 2 platforms left to ponder
