Waited 950 for 1 year. Sent it back after 5 days, phone with so many issues
Shocking. The Note comes out overall on top as usual

No lag, no restart, no freze display, good batery life (Lumia 640)and a good price for this performances. I my opinion Samsung is a rubish. My ex phone was a S3. Stupid phone and verry expensive. I don't want to hear about Samsung. And Iphone is a good too. But is to expensive in my opinion.

And yes, you can attach files to mails in windows 10 mobile. In my experience, none of the features you claim to be horrible are actually so - what's wrong with the decent file manager, which I can also see when plugging the phone into the pc? What's wrong with that level of transparency?It does lack many useful applications, perhaps, but I've found everything I need so far.

the pics taken and result were not same with the Gsmarena's photo & video tool. I can see L950XL photos n videos blew all other phones easily. Try it folks, it's not the same way what this review was talk about.

You have never owned an Android phone or a Premium android phone I should say.
"We've handpicked the best phablets from each of these platforms to put them head to head, focusing on the devices rather than the platforms they represent."
Listed under Cons for Lumia 950 XL:
"Limited app selection"
I didn't realise that was something to do with the device rather than the platform....
Completely incorrectly set camera on Lumia 950 XL. The camera needs to be adjusted to 5Mp with Oversampling, and photos are much better than the native resolution. I have Lumia 930 and I know what I'm sayin. These photos in the pictures are not nearly as good as the ones I've done with 930.

The idea of picking up a 64gb 6 Plus for 600 notes doesn't stack against a sub-450 quid (and still dropping) 950XL with micro SD. You're paying too much for the ecosystem, even though you kinda get it back in resale value.

You probably haven't used one or have used a Windows phone 10 decades ago, or have watched and read too many bad reviews that you think an OS can't be updated. Poor clown.
Actually use the phones and iPhone are more useable than Note 5. Note 5 auto brightness changes too slowly and is blinding with all lights off. iPhone's battery also lasts a lot longer than Note 5's especially on stand-by overnight. I used both phone for a month in December and returned the Note 5.

KEY ISSUES: (but the list can go on and on)
-Still horrible Web rendering (many Web pages: jump, freeze, don't display properly, lag)
-Absolutely horrible (worsen then even windows phone 8.1) illogical and very ugly interface
-Still horrible folder/file management
-Still cannot attach files to email
-Still horrible contacts management
-Still lacks many useful applications
BOTTOM LINE : Windows Phone (if you see ever really used it of course) is a nightmare to use!!!
Been an android addict throughout my cell fone usage career spanning 20 years now.....but I must admit IPhone 6s plus is the best piece of fone experience I have had ever....
Now even going back to Android let it be anything seems odd to me...
ios noe has awesome experience like never before..
And to top it off absolute power house of a battery...
