Dodo, 07 Dec 2015One potential major issue is the lack of fingerprint scanner and the multiple user recognition... moreWhen they said they managed to "fool" it, they meant the constraint of a single user recognition. For a user to register their iris, they need you to unlock as well as provide a pin, nothing different from letting somebody else register their thumb, isn't it? And if a stranger has your pin, screw your thumb, you might as well poke it in your iris, your phone is open to them. So don't try to make it sound like a vulnerability when it isn't. A feature requirement, maybe.
Dodo, 07 Dec 2015One potential major issue is the lack of fingerprint scanner and the multiple user recognition... moreThat's because Iris scanner is still on beta right now. Most of the issue will be fixed via os/firmware update.
The strengths and weaknesses of the device is very well elaborated. Kudos for the unbiased review Gsmarena!
Kyle K., 07 Dec 2015Hello.
I've tried different FM radio apps (on Lumia 950 and 950 XL) and none of them worked... moreHey Kyle,
I understand but than on the connectivity page why it says "There is also support for Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and GLONASS, plus an FM radio." ?? :-P Typo ?? Copy/Paste Error?
AnonD-98355, 07 Dec 2015Where is the audio quality test?It's in the review right from the time of publishing - Multimedia page.
AnonD-232545, 07 Dec 2015Please edit. It has FM Radio. It's just that the default application is not present on the dev... moreHello.
I've tried different FM radio apps (on Lumia 950 and 950 XL) and none of them worked - they all said the phones don't have FM radio hardware. If you tell me what app you tried, I will check it out. Thanks in advance.
One potential major issue is the lack of fingerprint scanner and the multiple user recognition ability.
The iris scanner appears less than secure if it can be fooled by scanning another person's eyes. This would be important to many and I hope there is more information available.
What about the ability to pay at checkout with Windows?
Please edit. It has FM Radio. It's just that the default application is not present on the device.Any 3rd party app for FM Radio would work great - if you still have the unit, go ahead and check it out.
Wow! These are seriously good camera shots!
The 950XL appears to beat the Note 5 and even the Xperia Z5, by the looks of it.
Yes! I love Microsoft! What I know is that Windows for desktop pc is the best operating system on the planet. Now I can't deny Microsoft is doing his best to do the same on smartphone. I hope very soon Windows 10 will be the best operating system of all platform (Smartphone/Tablet/Laptop/Desktop/Console)
