Lumia phones with IPS allways perfom better than Lumia with AMOLED screen .
you can check it !
even the 640XL is better because it uses IPS.
it seems the AMOLED they are using is very cheap
Mike Ty, 03 Dec 2015Hi everyone! Am not working for Microsoft but please let me tell you what to do regarding this... morehi,
There is a big problem about Windows phones ,
for example not all banks have applications for windows ..
not all supermarket , not all airports , airlines , reservation , not all Hotels , etc
they ALL have IOS and Android apps for their business . THATS THE BIG PROBLEM

AnonD-167064, 04 Dec 2015do you also understand, that Android is more stable and more optimized than Windows 10 Mobile ... moresorry , this is hardware related issue !
the battery life is 3 times better ! this is not a software issue !
AnonD-167064, 04 Dec 2015If you only knew how poor was the battery life and how unstable and slow was Windows 8 Mobile ... morelol , Lumia 930 came after 1520 and sucked on Battery life even more than the 950 ...

If you only knew how poor was the battery life and how unstable and slow was Windows 8 Mobile when launched.
Now Windows 8.1 Mobile is rock solid, smooth, fast and with good battery life like on Lumia 1520 or Lumia 640 for exemple

this phone at 8 hr with 3000 battery is bullshit ! nothing will convince me to buy it .
I will wait for HTC , or Samsung to release a windows phone !
mir, 03 Dec 2015That does not explain the measly 8 hour battery call endurance, in which the screen will be tu... moremaybe they are using high power send/receive transmission for calls then , which is bad for health but good for signal strength .
could be the mic/speakers power as well.
in Short I am not buying this phone lol
AnonD-459976, 04 Dec 2015sorry , 8h TALK TIME has nothing to do with the internet at all. this phone is bad.of course it has to do a lot with that. Becasue even if when you're talking and for some reasons data connection is interrupted, it doesn't mean that background processes are not actively collecting data to maybe trasmit it later.
And the OS needs further tweeking to increase the speed of the UI and built-in apps and also reduce CPU usage by this apps/tasks by optimizing the way they are executed.
ICE, 03 Dec 2015On the contrary, IPS actually uses MORE power compared to AMOLED. On the flip side, the power ... morenope !
old IPS draw more power !
your information about IPS is from old 2009 days .. we are living in 2015 .
Also , not all Amoled are good and power friendly . It seems Samsung does not sell the Better AMOLED screens outside to win competition.

If you install the current Windows 10 Mobile (build 10586) on your Lumia 1520, 640 or on any other Lumia battery champions which were previousely running just perfect under Windows 8.1 Mobile, you will see the same situation as with Lumia 950 (XL) as the one in this review.
The newer is the OS build, the stabler and smoother it s and the less backgroud processes are running to collect phone crashes/bugs data and the less is your phone's Wi-Fi/4G connection will be used during the day. AS simple as that.
Battery life will soon improve a lot when Microsoft will realse a more stable/optimized OS build later this month, beacause they will gradually decrease collected data amounts which will significantly decrease the number of backgroud processes collecting various data and Wi-Fi/4G usage.
Windows 10 Mobile will be updated later this month to bring better battery life and smoother and quicker apps response times.
Meanwhile it consumes approximatively 30% more battery than Windows 8.1 Mobile on my Lumia 1020, because it constantly uses the phone to collect data concerning various apps crashes, slow apps lunching and resuming times and it uses as well a lot of data connection to send data all the day from your phone to Microsoft so they can take a look to get problems fixed.
Good to have a comparison with 1020 in terms of camera.
AnonD-232545, 03 Dec 2015As per the videos (for some time unavailable anymore) from Kapion LAB, both the 950XL and 950 ... moreThe Docs at the FCC, which is required for sale in the US, show a 950 with no heatpipe. If the heatpipe was in the production model, then the app would have to be resubmitted with the update. My guess, the teardown WITH the heatpipe is possibly the final preproduction model.
AnonD-459976, 03 Dec 2015dont hold your breath , The XL uses a more power hungry chip ... The Problem is in their AM... moreOn the contrary, IPS actually uses MORE power compared to AMOLED. On the flip side, the power draw on IPS is less affected by brightness levels. Ideally, to compare the battery life between the 1520/930/950, all three will need to be retested running Windows 10. I believe the 1520 battery performance will drop running Windows 10 + Cortana.
Dearest gsmArena and Microsoft friends and followers.Microsoft doesn't need to experience the same road that Nokia took again.The rise and fall of Nokia and reasons of the Nokia empire descending is the best guidelines for Microsoft to be taken attention to!!Of course,undoubtedly,lumia 950 XL(plus LTE standard 5.5 inches if exists!!)stands among high-end smartphones with respect to design,features,and performance,however it is maybe a start of offering the higher and highest ends smartphones in future hopefully!!!I myself still prefer to put the 8affordable good quality lumia 640 XL LTE in my virtual dream wishlist museum!!!?Because 950 XL is so much high ultra pricy that only few in the world market of nowadays can afford buying it and a good start needs some subsidies especially for the third world nations to absorb their interests towards Microsoft!!!Still people don't forget nokia 808,N8,1520,735!!Why!!!?I have to add that studying complete unbiased fact writing gsmArena review gives more profound knowledge to know lumia 950 so much better!Thanks all,gsmArena,Microsoft to read and regard goodwill comments .Justice Rights.
