lilly, 21 Jan 2016Winner Samsung NOTE 5 !!!!
Loser WP Lamia !!!! The Ecosystem is nothing :(
Buggy Software!Note 4 - exynos version is better. Same CPU as Note 5 (just 200mhz less), worse GPU (but who cares about games). Similar screen and camera but much much better battery (replaceable) and storage (micro SD).
In this review I witnessed 3 losers. Phones are evolving the opposite way around. For shame.

GSMarena is the most unbiased site in the world.
this is why I keep coming here instead of other crappy sites out there

Poor Lumia 950 XL you shouldn't fight against those beasts you have no luck with them lol
Nice review, shows that all three are solid phones/platforms and would make an excellent choice, no matter which one you end up with. It's good to have a competition and for us the consumer to have quality choices. I have the Lumia 950 and am loving it. I am using Continuum with the ScreenBeam Mini Continuum and works great.
I find the 950XL camera way more realistic than any other phone in colors. Battery life is awesome but still needs improvement. Display is superb.
I expected more from L950 but since its business model I don't really care. Still I see them getting better in terms of image quality, hope they will continue getting better. They are not far behind in image processing like others in video. iphone-mono, note5-stereo with 2mics(also sound deviations). Closer comes Z5, the closest one is V10. Sound from 950 is just pleasant and natural. I think it 100times better for those who like to record. I also hope you will test camera, for ex. how long 4k you can record (max time one rec.+how much you can save on memory)... for ex. mono-audio 4K with less than 16GB space, weird audio 4K in 5min parts on 32GB, full audio full length 4K on 32+XXXMB mem.
Here's a photo comparison using GSMArena's own tool.
Battery life is great on the 950XL Dual Sim. Reviewer also placed no fingerprint scanner as a con for 950XL but did not put no iris scanner on iPhone and Note. 950XL also has USB Type C. 950XL wins best camera for me.
Mr Lithuania, 21 Jan 2016I just can't understand, why gsmarena making look like resolution on camera's is the most impo... moreJust like gaming sites are biased in favor of playstation, gsmarena is also favoring android over any other mobile os. though, it's understable since playstation and android fanboys are much more vocal online (massively disliking any positive iphone/xbox news/videos, for example) so they have to write stories to make them happy, or risk getting flooded with negativity. Not saying that there aren't bad iphone or xbox fanboys, but those "bad" fanboys are a minority.
So in conclusion, the iPhone is the fastest piece of metal in the world. And that's it, then it poses as something else and it succeeds, if anything it only shows how uninformed and gullible consumers are and apple knows it. SONY Z5 MASTER RACE.
The Note 5 is the best phone I've ever owned. I had many phones in the past, both Androids and iPhones, and the Note 5 blows all of them out of the water. Efficient and fast SoC, great battery, awesome camera and screen. Just wish they threw the miscroSD card but it's no big deal. Overall it is a worthy champ and highly recommended.
I just can't understand, why gsmarena making look like resolution on camera's is the most important thing. Seriously, i simply can't understand it. Where is aperture, artifacts, white balance, dynamic range, camera's speed and so on. It's way more important than megapixels. Or it's some kind of gsmarena's "silent war" against Apple? :)
Djono, 21 Jan 2016previous review between nexus 6p vs note5 vs lg v10 on photo quality the winner is LG v10, now... moreLG V10 has a superior camera indeed, but it's not part of this comparison. We only included it as a reference camera, it is not considered for the Winner's place at all.
Is the winner revealed yet. I sold my Samsung edge plus for Lumia 950. Best decision I made. Keyboard is fantastic. Hd calls are superb. Camera in my opinion is just as good as Samsung's if not slightly better. The third flash really gives it the edge. Feels better in hand. I can hear people loud and clear speaker phone, WiFi and data connections are better. I won't be going back to Samsung in hurry. Iphone Is heavily overpriced with a 12 mp camera . I don't like the hardware. It hardly ever changes. . Come on android and apple fanbits open the window'sssssssss in your room and look out to the future. Lumia lighted way and Surface phone is coming.
Which build 950 XL was running? Also, did it have the newest firmware installed which was supposed to fix noisy images in low-light conditions?
