So what you must realise is that you can't order it and have it shipped but people do buy stuff in other countries1
the lumia 950 950 XL like the xperia Z range can be used anywhere on the planet as it has ALL 4G LTE banding
the second thing the price of the lumia 950 $650 is the same as the LG G5 and xPeria Z5
you are gettimg 2 flagship phones stick a sim in and you're away
re apps alll you have to do is create a book mark, eg the official app my bank uses is mediocre, so I log on proper via the phone
point is 2 for one and look at this comparison http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=7534&idPhone2=7262&idPhone3=7815
amarin, 26 Apr 2016Hahaha, lot of MS employee complaining here for just a simple joke.
If you read this, MS peop... morehey, I don't know much about WindowsPhone, WindowsMobile, or even PCs. But I do remember using this thing called BLUESTACKS that allows me to play Android games on PC! It can do messaging to, and even create an android account!
Maybe Microsoft phones able to run BLUESTACKS? The latest ones, perhaps?
"finding a friend that wants to fly to Canada may be easier than finding a friend that wants a Lumia"
Is it really necessary to include the statement above? Most of us are aware that microsoft's mobile business is struggling but without microsoft most pc's are useless.
Well said, Nishru. Whatever you're trying to say, I agree with what you just said. I still have to read some sentences a couple more times, to my enjoyment. Well said, I say.
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016i dont understand!!It's called a "metaphor". Never mind that. Microsoft is the only one responsible for their bad reputation. You work for them and want to defend them? That's fine. But majority of people has been very disappointed with their current business model.
Really very few people are SMART ENOUGH to know windows is the best mobile OS around. Generally, android users are pretending to be smart about technology but.... Hahahahaha😂
I'm coming from Blackberry, user since 2007, and had given up my Passport because I needed a dual sim, hated Android, and had tested a Nokia 920... But hey, what a huge mistake... Lumia 640XL LTE Dual sim was worse than the Nokia. Plus, Blackberry was light-years ahead with regards to user interface, ram and generally any feature you would mention it was better... The only thing that I find better is the range of apps (I'm talking apps that are really useful for travel and business, not games)
For business users Lumia is a disaster, for recreational users and kids, might work just fine, mind you, it has a very god price...
Hahaha, lot of MS employee complaining here for just a simple joke.
If you read this, MS people & company, let me tell you,
if you want more UWP apps available, then don't limit UWP for just Win10 platform.
Let people with Win7, Mac, and Linux to build UWP apps.
Just like Android, make a complete development environment that runs on Win7, Mac, and Linux.
UWP is doomed as long as it's limited to Win10 and Win10 mobile. Open it up then you will see more apps for your Win10 platforms.
"Although, finding a friend that wants to fly to Canada may be easier than finding a friend that wants a Lumia." - Lots of people see this as unprofessional, but it's a funny joke...
Read it and thought "hehe, buuuurrn!" even though I've had a window phone the last few years
I have used both android and windows and i am using now only windows. Windows phone OS FAR BETTER THAN ANDROID...
semi, 25 Apr 2016Dear GSMARENA: It's the FIRST TIME that I read a sentence like that. "about finding a frien... moreYeah. Truth hurts always. Look, I'm not saying it's okay, it is a bit unprofessional, but it's a blog. And also...it's the internet. You should learn how this "beast" behaves by now. My advice? If you won't give people ammunition, they won't shoot at you. And MS has been handing over the ammo left and right recently.
That is a ridiculous article GSMArena, be professional and don't be biased. Every OS has it's own pros and cons and the buyer is smart enough to decide.
WindowsFan, 25 Apr 2016Microsoft, please launch this offer worldwide. It'd sell like hot-cakes in India. CAD 850/INR ... moreYeah, peeps like me and other fellows are die hard fan of this Device. Pls launch this offer in India also! \m/
Anonymous, 26 Apr 2016If this offer available in India.. I will buy one immediately with no second thought. hahha, same here my frnd!
Even I like 950! :D
If this offer available in India.. I will buy one immediately with no second thought.
Desperate measures. Black humors.
Big companies make mistakes too, we know that.
Nokia N2 had been around, it's fabulous.
Nokia C1 had been talked about, it sounded great.
But not enough variety from Nokia.
Microsoft should go back to Nokia and apologize for not selling well, learn from the old masters.
Before Nokia re-took the throne of the mobile world, in the final hours of Microsoft Mobile, 20XX.
Just a dream. Dreams gets as big as you want. Dreams don't make mistakes.
