Yuri84, 17 Dec 2016I tried windows phone and... well, I can't say I like tiles and menus. Parts of menu names are... morethat's a lie loll.. one things windows is amazing for is speed and simplicity. If you've used an android phone, using any other OS should be a breeze.. android is the messiest and most unorganized OS on earth...
It's not useless to buy this phone depending on the use you have for it. A person using a phone for calls, SMS, WhatsApp, even Facebook and emails doesn't need all the millions of apps on Google play store or ios. They would be primarily in the age 40-50+. Quite a few billion of those people around.. Not to forget the camera which you won't get in a phone at this price.

Can't complain about camera in 950 (xl?), quality-wise it was the best (or among the best) I've ever seen on mobile. But taking pictures, viewing them felt sluggish.
About phone makers: Alcatel, Acer, HP aren't known for making top products. First two are well known for their cheap offers (as a result - quality is sub-par, can't compete with top Samsung or HTC or LG phones in terms of cameras, for example), while HP is well known for their weird products and no less weird prices. I'd say HP should stick to where its good - laptops and printers.
Sadly, no leading phone making company is making windows phones any more. None from Samsung, LG, HTC. Xiaomi wants to make a tablet (?) but that isn't a phone. And I'm no longer a huge fan of Xiaomi products. Their prices are hard to beat, but quality-wise they have a long way to go. You get what you pay for.
If 950 XL wasn't sluggish in everyday tasks, I'd consider it.
Crazyyy, i would buy this device again, and again. For this price, it is not a steal, no other device is worthy for this money, in front of this device.

Popular phases that android users use against windows phone:
1. No apps: This phrase has been on for a very long time, until most windows phone users starting correcting them by letting them know that all the apps that is needed is available. Then second phrase was added.
2. Windows phone OS is dying or dead: I have been hearing these phrases since January this year, now we are in December the phrase has become old and Windows Phone is still here.
The phrase windows phone is dying or dead is a stale phrase; recently MS announced that an ultimate windows phone will be made, hp is fully committed to making windows phones, Alcatel are also making windows phones, Xiaomi recently announced a windows tablet, acer is equally in the business of making windows and many others. Windows Phone is going nowhere, haters can commit suicide or learn to live with it.
We know they don't like windows phones, they always hovering around news that concern windows phones in order to pour out their hatred. But they failed to understand that their likes is not compulsorily our like, so also their hate is not compulsorily our hate.
I love windows phones, it is very productive for me. You can to your android pages and offer your suggestions to the users.
Surely there's no market for windows phones anymore, think there selling out before the creditors take stock?
In my country 300$ = ~ 600national currency and the cost to replace a broken display is 300 >.>

$299? Is that what I must pay them or is that what they will pay me?
Hello dear, 17 Dec 2016To Microsoft! When Zuk & Xiaomi & Leecoo can sell there device less than 300$ why yo... moreNo price is good for a Windows phone, no matter how powerful it is. Not even $50 for this phone. Windows (on phones) is dying, and it doesn't have enough space in the ''Android vs iOS'' zone.
