Continuum looks like an ultimate useless gimmick.
Watch how a 3 year old Android, connected to the external screen and peripherals, humiliates it in terms of multitasking and overall capabilities! Everything works, even the games:
I looked at this phone online last night. I'm with O2 and they don't sell it yet, so I looked at the MS site. They have a link to offers and you can get this for free (On O2!) with 3gb data and unltd calls/texts for £31 a month. Half the price of some other makes. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/mobile/phone/lumia950-xl/offers/?obc=monthly_cost&opp=10#filter-container

I think it has to fight on the OS front, too. It's not any easier, though. So yeah MS is stuck between a rock and a hard place - they need to become Superman.
not really , the Apps that are Missing are the commercial ones Banks , Supermarkets , Shops , Train stations services , booking services , that companies only code for IOS and Android .
you ask them about WP version and they say : sorry we dont have it.
AnonD-474053, 08 Dec 2015Nokia always (now Microsoft) has had the best camera phones, network coverage and resistance. ... moreTrue that.
Tried all brands and OS'.
Prefer Windows. Has the buttery smoothness of iOS with the non-restrictiveness of Android.
Essential productiveity apps are on WP.
Others (time wasting games, etc) aren't. No biggie.
Cant wait for my Lumia 950XL
Having just viewed its photo and video samples, I am officially impressed judging by them alone. Now, I wonder how DxO would rate any of the 950 duo
Haha expensive at launch!? Its tooooooooo much expensive! They are stupid as hell!!!! Microsoft make up your mind!

So this isn't something new.
IRIS scanner is useless compared to fingerprint. Everyone looks stupid staring at his phone like dumb dude.
why the lack of custom contact field IS NOT mentioned in the review under the telephony department? It is a MAJOR drawback for a lot of people!

Bad sales -> less incentive to make... moreThis cycle is more like spiral..
They can escape if make phone with inspiring design and look.
That means metal or glass or combination of polycarbonate with metal, but must be inspiration for the consumers. Also good feature set: sd card slot, fingerprint beauty display and nice battery life, combinet with strong camera performance. IMO they can sacrifice wireless charging and replaceable battery. Who need second battery exept hard fans? MS need masses with money. That mean fashion and that mean DESIGN. And marketing of course.
No easy. With 950's became even harder.
Nokia always (now Microsoft) has had the best camera phones, network coverage and resistance. Now, continue with these characteristics but improved, simplicity, fluidity, high yielding, anyway. for someone who really needs a powerful mobile, does not need much garbage or install applications million, it has the right at the right time. The best camera, dedicated and selected applications that do not damage the cell, the novelty of iris recognition, 4 mirofonos, clean interface, simple configuration, network security default browser, in short, who wants something different, easy and powerful , lumia is what you need. I consider myself a fan of the brand and I've had all platforms, android, ios, the truth, I prefer windows.
Welcome to the Future of Flagship Smart-Phones:
Can double up as a computer (to some extent), has something that wont require me swiping my finger for security (old days thumb impression), has removable battery, expandable storage, reversible USB and wireless charging...
Android flagships should learn from the master (Nokia re-branded as Microsoft)

AnonD-182350, 08 Dec 2015who is did this review !! The disadvantages :- No fingerprint reader Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Why ... moreyeah sounds crazy saying no Fingerprint reader yet phone has it's own technology for securing and unlocking device which is iris scanner
Milo, 08 Dec 2015Perhaps you and I do, but we have to keep in mind not everyone is that concerned with value fo... morei dont look at os or apps, since w10m,ios and android have all the apps i need, there are good games too. what i need is more functions and features at a good price .thats why i am still in android honor 7. may be everyone are different. but if someone have plenty of money like you said, they can blindly go for iphone or lumia. but if so,i would have preffered iphone over lumia because it is a better status symbol
