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?
AnonD-43677, 03 Dec 2015does this have file explorer? useless software with good hardware...of course.... you ignorant
Yeah..its a legendary mobile..perfect balance with all features..awesome
does this have file explorer?
useless software with good hardware...

Horrible battery life. I don't know if there are people who are willing to buy.
MervS, 02 Dec 2015Guys... liquid cooling is only available on the XL.Ohhh. That makes SO MUCH sense then!
48hrs? I know it runs a QHD screen, but liquid cooled my A$$ if it performs like that under those circumstances!
The phone is sadly expensive outright, lacks potential in the app store and missing the simplest of features like a notification LED. The only good thing I can say about this device is the camera, as Microsoft blesses us again with Zeiss lenses.
Other than that, aside from the camera and continuum... Should you buy? For me, I'd look elsewhere.

in fact, WP is the best place for 3rd party developers, and there's lots of quality apps, but Android people are just too much "oficial-app-whores" to apreciate these devs work!
also Google was a bitch and cut down MS Youtube app, which was awesome, but we still have at least 3 amazing quality 3rd party Youtube apps!
Facebook has taken on the app, and redesigned it for W10, it is currently in beta!
in fact, the store is only poor on niche apps and Google apps (for na obvious reason duh) but for everything else i need, i found ALL the apps: facebook, whatsapp, instagram, youtube, messenger, my bank, my phone carrier, weather app, news app (oh look, flipboard!), adobe reader, netflix, spotify...should i go on? and i'm not the only one, even tho WP is still a small comunity!
"blablabla they not the same quality as Android"...well, i'm sorry to inform you they work well enough for most people...except of course the whiny Android sheeps!
One word: junk.
And not because of the operating system, I really like Windows Phone. But 48h battery rating from a 3000mAh battery ? No notification LED ? Design that looks like a prototype ? Highway-width bezels ? No thanks.
No disavantages? What about this very very weak battery life and the poor app catalog? There is even a decent app for a basic app like instagram!
Liquid cooling only available in class devices. But not a bad review . SHOCKER .
Why are you complaining about price. It's £419.00 on Amazon. Cheap as chips
Did you test the transfer speed of the Type C connector? Panos Panay definitely said these phones support 5gbps.
by the end of the month we have the launch of w10 for many devices with 8.1 and by then we also have a new build of th OS that hopefully improve battery life and other things... i hope anyway...
That 3G talk time is seriously disappointing for a 2015 flagship device. Even sadder is the fact that Microsoft is incharge of both the hardware and software here. How come they could not optimize it properly? I mean they had everything at their disposal that one could ask for. Still...

Also, continuum doesn't require the display dock. It'll work via Miracast as well (tested on the Xbox One, Netgear PTV3000, Microsoft HD-10, Microsoft Wireless display adapter and an Amazon FireTV Stick.
Kyle K., 02 Dec 2015Hello.
While it is not the right place to ask, indeed, I am answering anyway ;)
1. Huawe... moreThanks a lot Kyle. Now I can read page 4 of Lumia 950 review.
and no offence please, as I already mentioned, I really didn't know where and how else could I have asked these questions.
