    Hello sorry for the delayed response...i purchased the battery from rounded.com, and its 100% genuine, when i inserted the battery for the first time i got a msg saying new battery inserted, so of course its Microsoft battery
    as far as I know, Microsoft does not sell battery of 950xl separately. we do not have official method to buy a genuine Microsoft battery for 950xl.

    The packaging looks suspicious to me. On the left hand side of the package it says "protected wiht dna". "Wiht" is probably meant to be "With". I suppose that mistakes can happen, but that seems like a pretty obvious mistake to make on official packaging. And just because it says a new battery was inserted doesn't mean it's genuine.

    The package is done by Rounded, not Microsoft. Official is referring to the battery itself, not the packaging.

    I bought mine from Stellatech, somewhere in Europe, and it's quite obviously a "real", branded battery. That said, I think I've used it once, maybe twice, so I'm not sure it's quite the value that I perceived.
    stellech and fonejoy, lumia 950xl battery is out of stock, where to go to get original battery?

    Quick tip, if your battery does not sit flat on the table and has a bow or bulge it is damaged from overheating and Microsoft store will replace with a new phone.
    Damn I live in Iran (we are under sanctions), and I guess my lumia 950 xl's battery is damaged from overheating (it seems it has a buldge)
    It drains battery, like 5 percents in a minute.
    I don't know what to do, I guess I have to buy a battery and replace it.

    I was thinking of trying to get a replacement battery a couple of weeks ago but then MS released that last update and now my battery lasts 2/3 days again!

    Hi Abhinav,
    how has been the performance of the battery you purchased from Rounded?
    My 950XL re-boots several times in a day and it seems battery is the issue; it is certainly swollen. I should have checked the battery earlier as now my battery is out of warranty (just over 6 months)

    Thanks,
    Rishi

    I have had the same issue with the battery twice now, first time MS replaced it for me and now going through the process a second time but using the new third party support B2X and hoping the process is both quick and smooth as the first. Hard to believe I'm having to change the battery less than 6months after the first was replaced but here I am. I'm not sure what has caused it and im certain the liquid cooling in the device is supposed to help this not happening. Anyway, my symptoms are very similar to your own and quite annoying as my device will reboot repeatedly if the battery is less than 60%.

    Hi Abhinav, I am getting an offer for a second hand 950 XL (with warranty) for 250 $ and a 1520 (no warranty - 1 yr old - looks well maintained) for 190 $ .

    My requirement is good camera, battery life, good music/video experience, reliable performance while browsing. Please let me know ur views about 950 XL, since u sold it so soon.

    Definitely the 950xl.you can get a new battery and it'll be like new. The 1520 is a better made phone (bless nokia), but you cant replace the battery. Which means the phone might only have 1-2yrs to go depending on usage.

    Hi lumia 950xl was an awesome phone...it set the standards high for me...camera is just amazing...even my lg g5 can't beat it at many instances...battery is rock solid and i just loved it...but my love for new gadget and lack of many apps made me buy a new android phone.

    Thanks Abhinav. How is the support in India for 950 XL? Is the MS Svc center helpful during visits?

    Speaking out of turn... the service center (at Gurgaon, India) didn't help me as my battery warranty (6 months) expired just a few days ago. I had to find someone at MS to help me as the service center is 'obligated' to attend to issues that are under warranty but couldn't help me otherwise. Somehow, my request has been accepted and I am now waiting for replacement battery.

    I think I feel cheated for 950XL; got one for my father & wife, after our 920s got old... I think MS has killed Lumia, should have gone back to iPhone or may be OnePlus.

    Yeah, I was surprised to see this, after all the issues recently with cell batteries.
    I'm on this thread, from way back; I still have a spare battery which I'll probably put up for sale, that I purchased right after I got my 950XL, almost a year back now, through a UK dealer.

    I feel a bit cheated too, BTW, it's unfortunate the way things went. I have to admit, after using Win Phones since the inception, it was incredibly hard to move to Android, but I sure appreciate the stability. I'm even on 7.1.1, the latest beta, and it's crashed 1 time, and had maybe a couple of problems, since installed right after it became available.
    Patches are a bit "thin", but stability is something I sort of got used to not having, it's kind of nice, although I still miss the Win Phone UI, and probably will for a long time...

    Oops. I heard something similar from the seller on OLX yday. I was planning to use it for a max of 1 year (will buy some extension for warranty from b2x).
