FATEvsDESTINY, 11 Mar 2016Great review, love the format! Please add PPI to the percentile rank Please add brightness r... moreYeah that entire section talks about how the build quality is excellent and the design is simplistic yet surprisingly elegant and comfortable, yet then it gets a low score, which I don't understand.
The Lumia 950 XL won't accept third-party USB Type-C cables because most third-party cables utilize USB 2.0, which is basically microUSB but with the USB Type-C shape. The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are some of the only phones available that implement full USB Type-C or USB 3.1 which provides lightning fast data transfers. Perhaps you can comment on the fact in your review.
Nitpicking-You have a Samsung S6 image for LG V10 in your "Also Consider" section.
But, this a welcome article format. I have been following articles on your website for years now, I think you should have both a shorter (like this one) and longer version of the review.
Nice mini review GSMarena. Only thing lacking for me was the nice outdoor visibility table that you use in the regular reviews.
This is a nice and short way to give a review. I just have one problem with it, it is not properly optimized for viewing in mobile browsers which would be the majority of browsers viewing a timesaver review.
Great review, love the format!
Please add PPI to the percentile rank
Please add brightness range to "screen close-up" data
PLEASE Remove "Coolness" Rating, it is arbitrary/subjective and hurts the quality of your review. Other than that I think the percentiles and ratings are great.
P.S. Could you explain why the build and design for the Lumia 950 XL is so low. I think there is some reviewer bias leaking into the review here. I understand Win Mobile scoring lower in software and performance and even losing points for lacking app support but build and design should not be this low unless it is seriously an issue that is explained in the review. The current score makes it sound like it performs like some of the lower quality chinese brands, seriously.
Two things came to mind:
1 Amazing review, the way you guys put it together is just better than anything else I have seen, I still love the long reviews though, on that front your reviews are also the best out there by far.
2 You don't need to view the youtube videos in the browser!! There are many apps to do so and the best of them all is mytube, that app wipes the floor with the original youtube app, so check it cause I have the feeling that alone would have improved the score.
That's it, keep up the good work guys.
A fan from more than a decade ago.
A very detailed review.Well done and keep up the good work. Thanks GSM
"A notable omission is an official, native YouTube app. Today, years after the introduction of the mobile OS, you still have to resort to watching YouTube videos in your mobile browser."
No you don't. There are excellent third party apps available.
But really, everyone in the industry knows that Google refuses to develop for Windows. They even forced Microsoft to take down a native YouTube app. It's wrong to blame Windows for the monopolistic behaviour of Google. Rather, you should berate Google for it!
Yeah I agree, I haven't read it all but at first sight it looks nice and easy.
