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.
Farland Prince, 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.
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 ?
Paras sam Nokia 920, 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 )

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.
This isn't really a forum..it's just "let's slag off everything"..Anyone got any sensible knowledge of how the 950 is shaping up?..
Hi GSMArena crew, thanks for the review. Always, when I read GSMArena reviews, I start with page 3 (Battery), and I was shocked at the 48h duration (and 8h calltime).
i. Could you please repeat the battery after an update is issued? (or have a final retail sample in your hands)
ii. Making an article comparing battery life of a Windows phone with 8.1 Update 2 vs Windows Mobile 10 (when that goes live anyway) would be very interesting. Let's see if the new os is a battery hog. The more device you could include, the better.
iii. And something unrelated... Do you have any plans for reviews on ZTE Axon Mini and Axon Elite (EU version w/ 1080p screen) in the pipeline? ZTE Blade S7 maybe?
iv. Unrelated no.2, do you have any update on the battery test of (final retail sample) Sony Xperia M5?
vrvly, 04 Dec 2015Its a shame for a phone with such a good specs, reviews are done from day one, I'm not sure if... moreobjection here. Microsoft no need sell the company, they have to improve and get it better and even better for the software n hardware n the OS support. They need new ideas.
Thank you for a very helpful and insightful review.
I have enjoyed Lumias since the 800 and have always enjoyed the cameras and the OS. Since then I've had the 920, the 1020, the 535 and the 830. I enjoyed them all, except for the 535, and will probably get a 950XL. The better processor helps with the speed issue, especially in the camera department.

They are loosing marketshare day by day, faster and better mobile OS development is a MUST in such a situation.
They release two flag models, people who know will not buy cause they know the cons, people who dont know will buy and remain dissapointed with lacks in batterylife and software optimizations, and will not put their trust in lumia again.
That is no way to grow a userbase.
Microsoft mobile OS work is quite dissapointing considering it is such a big company.

Apple has only 7 phones on iOS 9 - they have no excuse to be slow, not especially when you're paying top money for their phones.
Microsoft doesn't have a global market share anywhere near the aforementioned companies when it comes to phones. There's no incentive for fast development.
As for their desktop OS - it's only been 4 months since Win10 was released. Third-party software companies are still adapting. Updates will come. Give it a few more months - it should work better for more machines.
