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.
Conrad, 22 Feb 2017The processor is a major weak point of this device, Snapdragon 810 is infamous for overheating... moreOh look yet another Alcatel Idol 4S Windows troll. 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.
snk, 03 Jun 2017Surface line is better. U won't regret if u buy surface pro4.what if it get spoilt will they abandon me again the same way they did with lumia 950xl , i feel sorry for the guys at the CARE CENTER coz they are desparetly trying to prove to me that it is going to be better but after trying the same thing 4 times in seven months they too are starting to give up . sorry bro to me after what i have experiencd with lumia 950xl MICROSOFT PRODUCTS seems very risky to buy. i found better customer care at APPLE. yes the iphone is more expensive but atleast you are assured good quality for your money
ashish yadav, 27 Apr 2017i really dispoint about lumia 950 xl , i was buy it from amazon online, after 6 month it going... moreeven mine, at seven months old this phone is dead, i feel sorry for the guys at the CARE CENTER coz they are struggling to bring it back to life while microsoft moved on to other things without even caring what lumia 950xl owners are going through, i would advise anyone to stay away from these products
It's been more than 6 monthes since I purchased this phone, and I am very pleased with this, very fancy looking, yet easy to use. I am glad I purchased this on last Christmas sale since it is hard to find this phone any more.
Althugh I don't expect much functionarities on any phone, (phone is phone) it is handy to have it during vacation, it has nice camera with shutter button, message to friend with picture, good GPS and maps for just in case when I get lost or to find target spot, occational E-mail and star map, calendar schedule, and FM radio to listen local station when I got bored.
I brought it to Japan for vacation, worked very well. (Believe it or not, the bands/frequency used in North America is different, rathr odd, considering rest of world standard, so make sure phone has band 1 for Europe and Asia) The phone got a lot of attention in Japan the country where almost everybody uses iPhone, which i think too expensive for what it does even considering it has a lot of application. "What is that? Never seen it. Wow, wireless charging? etc.
Now I wonder why some people has heating issue... but I noticed it marginally heated up while I was transfering SD card image from digital camera to SD Card on the phone through USB-C port. Probably it is not good idea to store application on SD Card. (I only store picture and some dicument nto sd Card) hope this will help to those has issue.
i have this mobile and to this day i wonder, what if i could make it android ??? would be the best 5.7 inch mobile in the market within its price range now hahaha
Please dont buy this phone if you havent because it s faulty , it keeps overheating , keeps restarting, and when multitasking the phone hangs and over heats the battery so bad it gets swollen, THERE IS NO SOLUTION TO FIX THIS PROBLEMS so in the end you are stuck with a dead phone. i wonder if the same apply to SURFACE laptops , for me after buying the 950xl i wont be buying any other microsoft product EEEVVVVEEERR
The good thing about it is the quality of the camera and the clarity of the screen and the speed of touch, but slow to store and download and open files, poor performance of the professor and the temperature of the device (cooling system is bad) and battery does not work long enough
