li, 06 May 2016u sure this phone is good? the sofware is fast? tell me more about this lumia 950 xlThis phone is good but the processor Snapdragon 810 has overheating issues.
As of now it is better to go for the new Alcatel Idol 4S Windows 10 Edition. It has newer Snapdragon 820 processor, it doesn't overheat, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, premium glass and metal body and it costs lower than this phone.

About YouTube, just use Awesome Tube, it has all the features of the official YouTube client and it unlike the official YouTube app it lets you download all videos to your phone or sd-card. Its UI is better than official YouTube app.
For Snapchat I use Specter, but it is no more available in store.
For Reddit just ude Readit, it has all the features of official Reddit app and has a better UI.
For Pinterest use Piny, it has all the features of official Pinterest app but its UI is way better than the official app.
Ive been on ms os from Htc 8x, now on 535 ds cause of private and business sims. Im asking 950xl users can i count on continuum? I dont have huge demands from smartphone beside office apps and especially rdp client. If i could use rdp client over continuum dont need notebook anymore to carry all over with me. Btw had a litlle struglling with win10 on 535 but now its ok. But i dont have huge demand for phone beside writing, sending, calling and battery.

Any suggestion on Wireless Charger and Case/Cover?

Anonymous, 05 Nov 2016Nope, MSFT abandoned Windows Bridges aka Project Astoria form their builds due to Googles shen... more...and that's why MSFT bought Xamarin instead. IMHO, Xamarin or Apache Cordova are better solutions (esp. Cordova, if you're a cloud-based web app looking to port to any phone).

Switched to the new Snapdragon 820 powered Alcatel Idol 4S Windows 10 Edition from 950 XL.
From the very first day I noticed immediate performance improvements over 950 XL. Multitasking is better, no overheating, apps don't crash like they do on 950 XL, of course its camera isn't as good as 950 XL but it isn't bad either.
950 XL was a good phone but the major problem of this phone was its processor, almost all Snapdragon 810 phones suffer heating, throttling, app-crashing and RAM management issues. Same was true for 950 XL, although I've observed that due to the dedicated cooling system 950 XL tends to heat up lesser than other Snapdragon 810 phones (OnePlus 2, Xperia Z5 ahem ahem!!) but the 810 severely restricts the capability of this device.
Genius , 27 Oct 2016Hello peeps.!
Just bought myself a Techno phantom 6plus just for the fun of it.... Comparin... moreIndeed the Techno Phantom 6 Plus is a beast.
It has amazing features like:-
Non existent after-sales service.
Non-existent OS updates.
Non-existent custom ROM or developer community support.
Pathetic quality control.
Inferior Mediatek X20 CPU.
Inferior quality IPS display.
Quite a marvellous phone indeed.
Guys is this phone really an advanced one from 640XL? is there a physical change on graphic and camera and so on? Please help
