Groove, 04 Dec 2015I surely don't defend Windows Mobile. I just know how it was with 7.5 and what it became with ... moreHuh, when android was that old, it was already on 4.4 kitkat.
Guess what, I use kitkat on my androidphone, and it still is more stable, more furnished and more comlete OS than win10...
I do not get it why and how microsoft releases such bad mobile OS itterations, full of bugs and ill optimizations.
It may be a reflection of desktop windows too, Every second itteration is just...bad.
This review sounds very, very positive. IMO - too positive, reading all owners complains about the design, battery life and UI experience.
This review sounds like 9-9.5 and Phonearena gives pitty 7.
I think that real score is between two - fair 8-8.5.
If the design was premium build, not like 640 on steroids, this device will break all Lumia sales records, but now will be for fans in general.
You can actually turn your Xbox One into PC with Continuum on Lumia 950/XL!

The best phone with lots of extraordinary feature ...
Just love to buy this ...
Godashram, 05 Dec 2015Sorry, but unless you are an engineer that has worked on the phone or the OS, then everything ... moreyou dont get it about the 8 hours talking !!!
you dont get it.
The phone lasts for short time in stand by 48 hours ,and thats when you use 1 hour talking ONLY as in the test.
now if you talk more like 2 or 3 hours , the standby will drop like shit will be like 30 hours only because the talking consumes alot of battery !
got it ?
Farland Prince, 04 Dec 2015You know nothing about Hardware . and shut your mouth , I already USE WINDOWS PHONE.
you di... moreSorry, but unless you are an engineer that has worked on the phone or the OS, then everything mentioned about batter life is speculation and opinion. No one can say if it's either the hardware or software's fault. The 950 being the 1st native Windows 10 phone, we have nothing else to compare it to. Using Android equivalents is pointless as well since they are NOT 100% identical in hardware or software, and even then, Only the HTC M8 and the Xiomi Mi4 are possibly the only phones you could use to accurately compare Windows and Android devices.
Granted, I do not know anyone who is on their CELL PHONE for 8+ hours a day. Also, anyone willing to toss this phone under a bus without at least a week of constant use (and updates) has no clue what they are talking about :)
I have a lumia 930 and my previous phone was the 920. I know the lumia range they are the best phones out there but for its just great , like i can just plug straight into my pc via the cable and i can just like drag and drop most of the office files so i use it like my px away from my pc when i go to meet clients im confident i can show and send them work documents. Like last month my had to get repaired and i used an ios device and i could that ios devices are fast simple but to strict . So lumia device are very good devices in its own way.people say that ios and android kills windows app store that is true but who has thousands of apps on a device at the most you have like 30 -40
Indian, 04 Dec 2015It's Software Issue Man........ I Have Downloaded Windows 10 Preview In My Lumia 640............. moreYou know nothing about Hardware . and shut your mouth , I already USE WINDOWS PHONE.
you did not test TALK TIME , you tested STAND BY OR Movies/Games!
if TALK TIME is so low then this IS A HARDWARE ISSUE .
8 HOURS ONLY TALK TIME ! with 3000+ battery , it should be 25 HOURS
BESIDES , no one forced MS to release a phone full of BUGS , why release it without testing the battery life ? they think this is a PC ?
The shame is on Microsoft to release a crappy phone without testing the battery life !
besides , the is not a Beta Version , this is a Final Version . and this is a Phone not a PC .
it Seems MS want to sell us crap like they allways did in the PC market

Indian, 04 Dec 2015It's Software Issue Man........ I Have Downloaded Windows 10 Preview In My Lumia 640............. moreIts a shame for a phone with such a good specs, reviews are done from day one, I'm not sure if majority will wait for update to recommend(/not) in reviews with such poor battery results. For microsoft it would be best to sell it directly then.
Sounded more like an advertisement than a review. Yes, the OS has taken great strides but that is only because it lacked so much.
And there is no mention of the complete lack of good apps in the App Store, which is the biggest drawback of the ecosystem.
It just becomes a useless expensive brick because you don't have apps to do anything with it.
Battery issue is software related. In earlier preview builds it was worse than this. But still it is still bad than 8.1.

mir, 04 Dec 2015Wow. You sure like to defend a half-baked OS.I surely don't defend Windows Mobile. I just know how it was with 7.5 and what it became with 10. And all I can tell you is it always gets better and better than before. As simple as that.
Same goes for Android and iOS aswell, but Windows progresses faster than both if you compare Andorid ans iOS at their stage when they were as old as Windows Mobile is now.
They were not this mature/stable and didn't have that much options and apps as Windows Mobile do now.
What about the limited availability of apps for this OS? It isn't mentioned anywhere but in my mind it's the phone's biggest drawback. I am not trying to start a fight but Microsoft should work much harder on it's software ecosystem before releasing expensive devices for which a lot of apps available for Android or iOS are missing. I have a Lumia 630 which I use as a secondary device, and in this role I am perfectly satisfied with it. But to buy an expensive device which uses such underdeveloped OS: no, thank you. I have tried many devices with all current OS-s and at this point investing such amount of money into a Windows phone is in my mind a stupid and rationally not well founded decision, driven mainly by fanboyism.
