The latest Excel in Android still lacks ActiveX (so you can't open spreadsheets with Macro; come on Microsoft it is year 2015 and we still use our grandma's Excel without Macro function). If this is the same as well, than it is useless! It can't do the same as your PC edition MS Office. It can't perform a PC function. If you can't open any Excel spreadsheet with your ultra powerful smartphone, than WTH are we talking about Antutu etc. scores? I open any ACAD file with my smartphone with ACAD360 free of charge. So, smartphone processor power limitations are gone long ago. We need software limitations to be avoided. In short; WE NEED FULLY PERFORMING MS OFFICE APPLICATIONS. PERIOD.
Can this phone ring and vibrate in the same time or is it like all other older lumias what could only vibrate once then ring
abc, 03 Dec 2015how do you watch youtube? last time i heard, google apps were not available for windows phone. Actually the youtube experience is great, there are great 3rd party apps which have the same fonctions as youtube red (without a paying subscription) : no adds, offline viewing etc.

Anonymous, 03 Dec 2015Battery life is bellow average, but im glad it is removable, that mean i don't have to wait ... morehow do you watch youtube? last time i heard, google apps were not available for windows phone.
I think only XL has liquid cooling - for 810. 808 is not getting that hot.
good job Microsoft.they shoulda went with 1080p.but since you got fast charing and etc. is not a big deal.
good camera+continuum is good for me.
Battery life is bellow average,
but im glad it is removable,
that mean i don't have to wait for 2 hours (maybe)
If i have battery kit (can swap it less than 1 minute and continue watch youtube)
Problem solved.... end of story.
0) It has fast charging - my 950 gets to 100 % in an hour, 50 % in 30 minutes. So...battery life depends on how you use your phone. Mine goes to around 24 hours.
1) The 950 does have liquid cooling. Check the assembly videos and Microsoft confirmation.
2) Have one from the 26th of November - it also came in with bundled headphones.
3) Plastic back does not look cheap...But if you scratch it, it costs less than a back cover for your iPhone to replace with an identical original one.
4) Want premium look? Order a cover from MOZO - full hand made leather back, all functionality still in place - still cheaper than replacing your back cover when scratched for any other flagship.
5) App gap is not a problem if you are not using any apps. What I mean to say is that before you think about app gaps, think about what apps you are actually using and what apps you actually need. Instagram is here, FB is here, Whatsapp is here, Skype, Viber, Snapchat, Telegram etc. Also have torrent clients :). Main problem is with games ..which are a bit slow to show up on the MS Store.
6) Price..not high. From G4, S6, Iphone 6S, HTC M9 - they all came out similar and higher prices. Keep in mind that it also has support for external memory cards, hence when you compare to a Galaxy S6, don't compare it to the 32 GB version only.
Lovely phone, but the bad battery is a deal braker for me. But i changed my mind about the camera, it is truly amazing.
Really, really dissapointing battery life. I really wanted this phone (and aprt from attery life it looks great), but I just cant buy phone with such a terrible battery life. 3000mAH looked promising but in reality is so dissapointing. Guess there is no point looking for miracles in 950XL. :(
The 5.5" LG G4 is a great match for the Lumia 950 - it has a Quad HD screen, it runs on Snapdragon 810 ...............
Please correct to Snapdragon 808
why cripple the desktop? for 70 euro you can have tablet running full windows, so it is just mean to offer less for much more $$$. why require docking station? you could fit 5 full PCs in that form factor these days!
very bad battery life for 5.2 inch with 3000 mAh battery.. even G4 has better rating with bigger screen..
mir, 03 Dec 2015Ohh dear. That battery life though. The camera is excellent, but you wouldn't be using it for ... morebattery life is a usual problem of newly released phones. when they provide some updates it is fixed. don't worry about that :)
drkavin, 03 Dec 2015does this have file explorer? useless software with good hardware...file explorer is there.
Ohh dear. That battery life though. The camera is excellent, but you wouldn't be using it for long with that kind of endurance.
Did anyone else head straight for the camera quality part of the review?
