Hahaha microsoft is just wasting money for creating phones that wont.sell at all, since they had removed the nokia brand in their phones people started furthere not to buy those microsoft phone, unpopular,pricy ang ugly device. Yes they might relesse these beatufily speced microsoft phones but people wont bother buying it, its not worthy at all slow camera,no tru multitasking, poor apps selection, id rather buy those laggy andriod phones with daily usability.
I have a lumia 930 and was hoping that the 950/950XL would be made like that. Then again, with the SD810......we have no clue as to how the metal body would handle all the heat from the processor. Think I'll stick with my 930 and patiently wait for the upgrade to 10. Hey...........if it ain't broke, why buy a new one?
JF69, 26 Sep 2015What apps, WP has apps, lol. yep over 550,000 now. And when Winmo10 comes out with the Universal App system it will be millions.
Well I love my windows phone. Had IPhone there ok. just flash phone. Had Android great for viruses and malware. And now it seems people are not getting what Microsoft are doing. Well here is Universal Apps. That means the dev tools to convert IOS & Android are much easier now on Windows phone 10. Means that Winmo10 will have much more apps. Eventually as many as Android.
And as for the Lumia 950 that my next phone.
I love Lumia phones, the OS is great and for those using Win 10 on PCs you can have a perfect worming experience if you own a Windows Pho e. The design of Microsoft phones sucks though. They should design phones similar to the Nokia 730, OLED display, nice shape and polycarbonate design. The Microsoft current design of phones appear like Samsung copycats.
lumia 550 = 5 inchi with 1,905mAh battery. this phone will drain battery more than asus zenfon 4 did
billy boy, 26 Sep 2015Windows apps run faster and normally better actually. And windows phone 10 browser is lighteni... moreWithout a real app store WP will lag behind Android and iOS, the WP app store is horrendous, there is a reason why WP had only 3% adaptation, is the OS snappy, sure it is, but like the saying goes "there is an app for that", which means you need a phone and OS that has them, and for WP this line does not exist, it's been their Achilles heel. And those second hand half baked apps do not count. They also need Google services, Bing blows and as does Here maps.
good082, 26 Sep 2015why do people so demanding about more apps. Actually most of the apps are useless and only few... moreThere are mandatory apps like car parking app in my home country cities or virtual bus ticket and etc. Whats the use of the WP if it's not popular plarform and various local service providers doesn't bother in making apps for WP users. Everything is for iOS and Android. Why consider to buy not popular Windows phone and make your life more difficult? Not even mentioning very popular another apps witch WP lacks...
Superb specification, but too high pricetag.
They just dont have the brand and fanbase to ask for this amount of money.
billy boy, 26 Sep 2015Windows apps run faster and normally better actually. And windows phone 10 browser is lighteni... moreAgree for apps, but camera will be not the best.
Even if it shoot at 4k, with this cpu will not be able to make slow motion like iPhone.
I doubt that can beat even lg g4 or samsung edge 6 or whatever was the name.
I'm not trolling. I like and use windows, but the specs will tell someting. Sd 808 is by far slow than exynos 7420 and A9. Even i think is slower than A8.
Flagship?!? I doubted.
ash776, 26 Sep 2015Ya but ....main apps like facebook in wp and opera mini messenger are nothing in front of andr... moreWindows apps run faster and normally better actually. And windows phone 10 browser is lightening quick. And Cortana. And best cameras with superior functionality. Lumia beats the crap out of most os except blackberry 10
Uhhh.. A crappy move from Microsoft again.. Why the hell they r killing the reputation of Nokia.. I own Lumia 925, which is simply awesome.. Windows Mobile is an awesome platform compared to any OS as of now.. But these crappy designs.. Yuck.. Poor design, worst texture n material.. N that microsoft branding n logo.. Really suckss.. On screen nav keys on a flagship.. I wud rather wait for the comeback of nokia..
Hope Microsoft will price the new 950 and 950 xl reasonably well within 25K-30K INR to regain grounds in the industry,but with Iris scanner etc i havemy doubts .Or they must have one model with Iris scanner ,only finger print (Samsung Galaxy A8 ,priced in the range of 25-27K .In india Nokia had a large following but now it is less and now that windows phones have come it is even less.And we have a good market in India much more than US or europe .
Microsoft are you listening ??
Heard that pricing will be somewhat on lines with i phone6s ,if that is the case they will be competing against a company who has already made a mark in the industry and Microsoft is no where near it as far as the Mobile segment is concerned.
