Super Amoled, his display is so magnificent 1440 multiple 2560 pixels, 20 Mega Pixel 2160, 3 gb Ram i think that is the first phone from microsoft is 3 gb ram and his processor is so fast 810 Snapdragon, corning gorilla glass 4, the battery is so great not bad, in my opinion it's better than Samsung iphone and other phones.
This is one of the best phone I have ever owed. No Crashing or jittering... smooth run through out the day. Even battery lasts long and Camera is the best in the series when compared to Samsung or apple phones.
I finally got settled with this device with update to Windows 10....
any one who has updated his os to the latest WINDOWS 10 update, please share the good and the bad about it

Idol 4S Windows has better processor, higher RAM, higher storage, better design, better speakers, doesn't overheat, does multitasking better than 950 XL, Continuum works better on it.
The only segment where 950 XL wins is camera and screen resolution, rest of the things are way better on Idol 4S Windows.
Just because Idols 4S Windows is cheaper doesn't mean that it isn't a flagship, not only it's a flagship but also it's a better device than 950 XL.

No matter how much you whine it won't change the fact that that glitzy glass bodied toy of yours can never be as durable as 950 XL. Not to forget that that lousy Sony camera sensor on your toy can never be equal to the Carl-Zeiss optics equipped sensor of 950 XL.
They may both run Windows 10 Mobile but 950 XL is a true flagship while your Alcatel is just a cheap toy with flagship like specs.
vick, 30 Jun 2017I wish Microsoft make some new beast . But this time with front facing speakers and Youtube app .Just use Awesome Tube for YouTube, it has all the features of the official YouTube app.

Windows OS itself is good, if no bugs.
But really disappointed with MS, update itself damaged the camera, so ridiculous.
So it is good if MS quit mobile phone market.
Switched from an Android 6 device to the 950XL. Couldn't be more happy. Everything works better, there are more smart features, dedicated camera button, best camera (even better than S8 and S8+ camera), all in all, a solid phonewith a minimalistic design.
Would not want to go back to Android.
