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.
colombiangadget, 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!
colombiangadget, 08 Dec 2015Nokia always (now Microsoft) has had the best camera phones, network coverage and resistance. ... moreDude, my old year and half back Nokia 930 have 4 mics with rich capture.
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!
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2015So MS is stuck in a vicious positive feedback cycle?
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)

avno7xp, 08 Dec 2015Hi Kyle,
Can you please install the latest insider preview and check whether the battery life... moreHi.
I can't, sorry. We can't install preview updates on the phones, which we do not own. If an official update arrives while the phones are still at our HQ - I could try testing them again.
Can you please install the latest insider preview and check whether the battery life especially stand by times are improved.( 10586.29 and above). The previews will be available next week I think.

all apps i use are, opera mini, chrome,uc browser,twitter,facebook,whatsapp,camera,old quick office,camera,mail,youtube and maps. everything(or an equal powered akternative) is available in windows phone and ios. when i buy a phone i usually look at affordability to features ratio. in that way i still feel my honor 7 is much better than any windows phone. what customers need is value for money
who is did this review !!
The disadvantages :- No fingerprint reader
Hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Why it's become with eye scanner !!
Battery score for me is just average but it is removable so i like it.
Camera is super, you can compare it with DSLR (reference cameras)
and some other hardware part is very nice (from the review)
the only draw back is software and applications, maybe take 2 years or more.
well.... who knows?
even adobe reader is still from year 2010
youtube is awfull lol
IF WE CAN INSTALL ANDROID ON THIS PHONE THAN IT WILL BE SUPERB!!!
