MINI, 09 Dec 2015Disappointed by the long waiting of windows 10 mobile release, and the no comment attitude of ... morewhat information do you want specifically? Updates for previous models is supposed to start this month for a few models, depending on carrier support, with the rest coming next year.
I think that MS did a mistake with the sizes of 950 series. 5.2" is too big and too close to 5.7", there's no much difference between the two. They should have opted for 4.7"/5" display for the smaller one, in order to create some differentiation.
Also I believe that there is a big hype on QHD displays.
A pixel density of 300 ppi is enough for 99% of users. I have 1280x720 5" display and I cannot even see the pixels. For the 950 a 5" display 1280x720 would be enough (at least 1920x1080 pentile), allowing much less power consumption for both graphic processing and display power drainage.
I hope they will deliver soon a 840/850 compact device with the same camera of 950 but with a smaller display, less powerful CPU and thus a much better battery life.
it may be worth doing the battery test again. since the update released last night my phone is lasting a lot longer! From 7pm last night until 14:30 the next day I still have 80% battery! (flight mode admittedly over night) but still much much better!

Darshada, 03 Dec 2015Yes lol... Instagram BETA. You just have a few filters, you cannot touch the contrast, clarity... moreTry 6tags. Much more powerful and definitely on par with the Android / iOS Instagram.
AnonD-459976, 05 Dec 2015you dont get it about the 8 hours talking !!! you dont get it. The phone lasts for short... moreThe only thing i get that you are 100% speculative, I own the phone, I know the battery life isn't stellar, at the same time, I know battery life in Windows 10 can vary from build to build. My 920 with the build before the 950 release lasted 27 hours before dying. With the latest build, which came out friday, lasted over the weekend on my 920 (from 5pm friday to 9am monday, 6% battery left). Now my 950 DOESN'T have an active sim, but is on wifi the whole time. That insider build should make it to the 950, via the insider program, this week. So until varying builds are tested, then your comments mean nothing. It could be hardware or software, but from everything I have seen, it leans towards the software, which can easily be fix.
AnonD-167064, 06 Dec 2015Have installed build 10586.29 yesterday on my Lumia 1020. Better batter life. Faster Edge br... moreWell that is good news thanks Groove. Hope GSMA does a retest after updates.
The 950 was never touted as having liquid cooling only the 950XL with the 810 processor. The reviewer should never have identified this as an issue because it was never a feature.
Is it possible to use the continuum feature on a touchscreen monitor and make touch input from the monitor ?
AnonD-473477, 06 Dec 2015I want to buy Microsoft Lumia 950, but I want to know that Lumia 950 have liquid cooling system???I still don't know if it has liquid cooling, but mine never gets hot while charging or executing hardware intensive tasks )

wp_lover, 06 Dec 2015GSMArena purple I request you to test the different Lumia 950 unit.
Then test Lumia 930 wit... moreIt's a software problem.
If you would have read some more posts you would have seen several users' reports stating big battery life hit on their Lumias after upgrading to Win 10 from Win 8.1.
Just take a brief moment and think, if battery life was good under Win 8.1 and got a big hit after upgrading to Win 10. Is it a hardware problem for you?
Hardware is still the same, just the software has changed.
By now you should have the answer to your question.
GSMArena purple I request you to test the different Lumia 950 unit.
Then test Lumia 930 with same Windows 10 OS build version.
Then retest the Lumia 950 battery life with improved build version.
Again test 930 with same build version.
(very long process)
By that time 950xl battery life will be ready. So that we can decide what is at fault. Software or hardware or faulty unit or whether the processor eats battery.
But I will give Microsoft the credit for worse battery life. Whatever the cause may be. It is their responsibility to check quality. Wanted to buy 950 as it fits my requirements, budget, palm, and my pocket.. But now, I should deposit some more money to buy 950xl only if it beats 950 in every aspect.. Til then continuing with 730.
Have installed build 10586.29 yesterday on my Lumia 1020.
Better batter life.
Faster Edge browser
More stable Bluetooth.
More speed and stability for apps that are still not yet updated from 8.1 to 10 level.
Better speed in opening and resuming apps like camera, maps, photos, weather and so on.
Realy happy )))
Waiting for this update tot be available for my Lumia 950 next week!
I am waiting for further battery life testing with newer version or retail sample. Given the present battery life result, it's definite a deal-breaker..
Excellent QHD screen, works good with the Windows interface and the glance screen which is back on the flagship again after absence on the 930.
