The saddest part of the phone market is that no one has still beaten the image quality of the 950XL's camera. The only reason I stopped using this as my main phone is because of APPS. I need to be able to use most of the major APPS for me to keep using it. I need Facebook's APP but the Windows version just does not support voice calling and video calling. Development for APPS has ceased on the Microsoft platform.
This is a cell phone that came out in 2015 and it's now 2018 and I have yet to see a better camera on a phone than this. Microsoft is truly innovated in their UI design. I hope to see maybe a future Surface Phone which will return the power of a Windows PC OS in the palm of your hands.
This phone has better touch sensing than my HTC10 and everything is much more faster and fluid. The AMOLED screen is still an excellent choice for visibility in sunlight over LCD. My HTC10's LCD sucked in sunlight so bad that it made me miss my 950XL's screen. It's sad that the only thing this phone OS lacked was access to the most popular APPS. Had this not been the case the 950XL would still be my main phone. I still keep this phone as my backup phone as of now my HTC10 is dead.
After 2 years my 950xl is still good no bad issue,no lag, i use until now, from Indonesia
One of the best mobile I ever had. Its really fantastic. In the use of two years, never gave any major problems.
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2018Hello readers, I'm an Indian and I have well defined strategies to bring back Windows 10 Mobi... moreHello readers, in my previous message, I said that I read about articles which say Windows 10 mobile has ended. But, it is coming back to life in the form of Andromeda OS. Good Luck Microsoft.

strategies to bring back Windows 10 Mobi... moreNo, both SIM support 2G-3G-4G.
But of course not simultaneously. You have to choose which SIM shall be used for mobile data. Switch between the SIM takes about 3 seconds. I use the feature to take use of two different operators every day. (Salt and Swisscom in Switzerland).
Seems to be quite rare, such a feature.
Hello readers, I'm an Indian and I have well defined
strategies to bring back Windows 10 Mobile
effectively. The main plus point of Windows 10 is
that it is a closed ecosystem. May I know, is there
anyone who would appreciate Windows 10 mobile
back. Moreover, please do say about whether
Microsoft would give me an opportunity to hit. I am
into this just after reading many articles saying
Windows 10 mobile has ended. Please do reply.
I understand that the second sim in Lumia 950 is 2G standby only. Is this the case with Lumia 950 XL dual sim as well?
AnonD-730498, 13 Jan 2018Windows Phone are run very smoothly compared to android phones even with just 1Gb of rams. Cam... moreNo phone company now even Samsung giant is manufacturing your favorite Windows phone because phones running Windows OS is a flop. Android OS so far is still the OS to reckon with. MS Lumia 950 XL is a monumental flop.
Using this phone from a long time. Never have seen any heating or battery drain issue. Its smooth fast and snappy and battery last full day very easily. Getting small Firmware updates every month Jan 2018 and Feb too. I am completely satisfied and love this mobile. It has camera like no other phones till date.
faraway in battery backup and smoothness as well than any android device. want to see a new products from Microsoft.
Windows Phone are run very smoothly compared to android phones even with just 1Gb of rams. Camera is excellent. Display is very good. No hang at least in my own experience. Built in apps like office and maps and health is very useful. No problem with games and social apps. Just lack of some applications can make some problems. After all very beautiful and stylish phones. Hope to see at least one new phone from Microsoft in 2018.
Rebuilt Windows phone , because it's camera is very good . manual mode is very good.
plz try to rebuilt Surface phone or Windows phone and add option Android app runing cross platform system or Built mainly app for windows store , like youtube, facebook,..etc. then nothing fail phone.
shodaime zack, 01 Jan 2018need advice..is this phone good??overheat much?? Camera is the best other phones can not compete but heating problem making battery draining fast about half day battery back up...
shodaime zack, 01 Jan 2018need advice..is this phone good??overheat much??I am using this everday as my second phone. GOOD: (i) camera quality is excellent that i am very happy with the image quality, i think no other phone can compete, (ii) plastic design is suit in the pocket. BAD: (i) heating problem making battery draining very fast, if you like browsing internet may be only half day batery backup, (ii) facebook messager call in both sound and video does not work, (iii) glass sreen and cover protection difficult to find or event can not find it. CONCLUSSION: if like taking photo you should chose it. Overall advise- you better chose Nokia 8
