    Can we expect a full review of Lumia 950 XL with Creators Update ? How does it fare in 2017 ?

    I hope the random restarts are fixed....it's getting unbearable, and I am losing my patience.

    i'm in the slow ring with the cu, nothing has changed to me, the phone always has been very responsive, but it stills warming like hell, the battery is decent but it could be better (aprox 8 hours with lte, gps activated, normal use)

    I'm on Fast Ring. With minimal to moderate usage, for example when at work where I use the phone mainly to make calls or surf a little social stuff, the phone lasts me about 7-8 hours, coming down from 100 to 30 percent battery. I've gotten more than 12 hours on a similar usage pattern with battery save on all the time. All the above are on LTE dual sim.

    Performance wise apps seem to open faster, run stable as compared tp previous builds, overall a more polished feel (same as when the anniversary update had arrived). I would say performance is as I would expect from this phone.

    Taking photos and videos is better, my phone doesn't heat up when doing so. However, the phone does heat up when put om charging some times. Phone heating up is much less frequent than I remember (or I may have gotten used to it).

    Using the phone as a hotspot or similar uses, like processor heavy games, or prolonged camera use will start to drain the battery fast - since the first scenario is project wifi signals, and the others use the screen a lot.
    Windows hello / iris scanner works much better, faster and quite reliable. Even works from a farther distance, the improvement is quite noticeable.

    In some of the earlier builds the connect page in settings used to crash upon opening, but works fine now.

    All in all, if you are thinking of installing, it's a good build/update

    ExpressVPN is working a lot better on this build, than any other for me. But as @beachhppr stated, it doesn't stay connected:(

    Hello is definitely more efficient. Groove music is louder and sounds better quality.

    I have a similar conundrum, I've been using a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and, although hate is too strong I really can't get used to it. I've been eyeing another 950XL. What put me off before was the battery life but I may just have to put up with that.

    Well, lumia 950XL on creators update is more or less the same as it was, when you left the platform (if you already owned it before):)

    - battery life still mediocre
    - iris scanner still load of crap
    - camera still great:)

    What changed: you can get it really cheap, it feels faster and edge is way better.

    Has anybody with a 950 XL bought through EE in the UK received the creators update?
