I have realized that most of the negative comments come from either people who don't regularly use lumia phone phones, not skilled use of the phones, do not like nokia phones or are favorites of competitor / other suppliers. Remember no phone is perfect in this world!!!
This does not mean 950 is perfect, there are a number problems that Microsoft should fix.
Another setbacks for Windows, HTC 10 flagship line, categorically excused MSoft it will ever think of it again. Only company who used to offer windows versions n their line. So why not cry over our mistakes to invest 700$ on 950xl flagship, it's worth pebbles!
The phone does not accept or allow different ringtones for different contacts, despite having the relevant ringtones in the Ringtones folder on the device. Lumia 525 was better in this regard. Helpless !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
. 122 update is still buggeist, mailbox closes within seconds, can't read or delete it. Whatsapp again closes right away. When, it has been delayed, numerous times, benefit of doubt casts around it too.
Microsoft and Nokia on cellphone failed... concentrate on computer os
AT&T has put it flat 550 $ Sim Free. This is demise of 950 xl. It's 1st march launched n jan, see its fall. I would suggest why are we penalized buying 750 with continuum. Useless gadget. I pray as it's software is still buggy, flat 300 would see by 31st march. Soc 810 with coolants tubes is a curse, all Z5 to Htc and Lumia have terribly failed. I promise to buy another at 250 and show online.
It's for all, has anybody updated to. 122 lately, what are differences or an eyewash.. 107 was a bugged OS, and that's why it was withdrawn, MSoft has failed for good. Very dud response by vendor because nothing to deliver. Plastic Brick,
"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.
