nice phone and nice photo picture quality I like picture quality
I understand Microsoft markets this as having 4 mics, it is true for the 950, I can allocate all the mics, but for the 950 xl I can only find 3. One on the bottom of the screen, 2 on the back, cannot find any mic above my screen! Also on the quick start guide it shows only 3! On this review it was mentioned there is one above the screen, can you show me exactly where this is?

also operating system it self looks very shit, even dont have a grid system for icons, everything looks like a ms dos, when you compare it with android and ios. windows not colorful

I'm from India too and Apple just crossed 1 million mark in October, go and check Microsoft Lumia FB page and see people crying about lack of apps. If you have apps NO updates! And people want useful apps, no one cares how many apps does it provide in numbers overall!
And why does WhatsApp have crappy interface on Windows platform, my sister complained and later throwed that garbage XD
vrvly, 07 Dec 2015Q: How long it can record 4K in 30fps? Z5/P can do 53mins.(also cooled) Or is it possible that... moreWell my lumia 930 use to record like 20-30 minutes without stop but because the phone auto stops most apps(including video record) to cool the phone, and since the 950 has liquid cooling i would assume that it records until theres ni more space left. And come on.. whos gonna video.record that much? (And when thr 930 auto stopa recording it saves what it recorded already)
Andro, 12 Dec 2015Continuum is a fail if not a fraud.Both Microsoft and its paid troll advertises were going on ... moreHow can you say Continuum is a fraud? Did Microsoft ever advertise or suggest you could run CAD or any Win32 programs on it? If you think about it, when Remote Desktop is released as a Universal app (apparently not far away) you'll be able to run the apps on your desktop using Continuum. No matter which way you look at it, that's a pretty cool and very useful feature - hardly what I'd term a fraud...

In a nutshell, it feels so easy and natural for a Windows 10 user, the OS is cleaned up considerably from previous versions, and Microsoft is improving the experience weekly. I wish the video autofocus wasn't so busy but it's not a deal breaker. Both the 950 and 950 XL are great phones. Thanks for the detailed review.

If you really want a phablet get the Sony Z Ultra, it's a gorgeous 6.4" device and completely outclasses this 950XL.
these phone just cool but in this price huawei p8 or mate s far better than 950 ,,,,

Well it WOULD have a case if there was a case available in my country.
I will keep it as is until after New Year day (as it is fully functional), because I am afraid if I tried to fix it now, it would get delayed.
lol. hohohooo.. windows phone os is a failure. this year, pinterest stops supporting windows phone os. next year path will also do the same.
microsoft! thats what u get for destroying nokia.
AnonD-81205, 13 Dec 2015Damn I love this comment section.
1) You don't praise Microsoft? You are a hater.
2) You d... moreIf continuum is a useless joke, a 4K screen should be a laughing matter too. And just because a feature is new doesn't mean it's something great. HTC's Ultrapixel tech in the M8 was nothing more than a marketing ploy - photos were muddy, had low DR and often had poor contrast. (PS, if everything new was good, then we should all be celebrating their decision to include an 810 instead of an 808 :P )
I'm not saying the 950XL is a wonder phone. Plastic is blegh, especially next to that gorgeous Sammy glass, and the price isn't exactly competitive either, and MS could have done something really great with this device. But that said, it's not such a bad phone! Apart from the build quality and the apps, it does pretty much everything you'd expect from a flagship.
