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
Wrath of Nokia, for the shape MS is, should quit, all models are hardware wise outdated. Nothing is impressive outside or inside.
very very bad mobile -battry is too bad-Heng alltime- very expensive-rayashop in egypt is bad
-just camera and screen good
Failure n MS history, since what is the maturity age of a company, oldest than google and apple, but screws are rusting, see what they did to windows10 standstill. Might be curse of Nokia is playing its active part.
This is good hardware and needs to make a change into 4G full feature communication.
International price slashed to 550$, uk why within 1st qtr. Its due to withdrawal of 950xl and update ota twice, has shattered trust of fans! I still awaiting new update, said tobe withdtawn. Anybody got it recently, feedback
Great phone! The firmware update takes a while, though. Other than that, amazing display, very good camera and better battery performance than Lumia 930.
Updated bug free, last chance mid Feb, then it will become a false alarm. Prices n Dubai are down, after worse data if sales. Its high time, you quit! No body will ever remember you for this debacle with Nokia.
Microsoft failed badly in their logistic. Unlike iphone & Samsung who launch their product all over the world almost at the same time, Microsoft phone to date has not even reached Singapore & many other places. Go on like this, Micrisoft will has to write off this phone just like they did to Nokia.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2016Do you find dual sim mobiles in SwedenYes, you can fins the 950 with dual SIM in Sweden from most vendors. It is also possible to find the dual SIM 950 XL, but from just a couple of vendors.
