    Depends on how it's implemented. I have one on my W530 (Thinkpad) and it is horrible to the extent that I don't use it. However, the one on my Yoga 260 (also Thinkpad) is absolutely great - I use it all the time.

    I haven't tried any on a phone, though, but after my experience with my new 260, I'm inclined to get a phone with a reader when my 950 is ripe for an upgrade.

    Yep, I've tried it on both an iPhone 5s and Nexus 5X and it is perfect, especially when taking it out of my pocket. It can be ready to go before the moment my eyes see the screen!

    Yes, interested in the HP Elite X3 and if you are using one what is your experience and would you recommend it at this point in time?

    To answer the OP, no. I am an avid Microsoft user however, it came to a point where I could not do my job anymore due to the lack of apps unavailable on Windows. So I made the switch to Android. I'll describe Android in one word: WOW. Coming from Windows Phones for almost six years, Android is light years ahead of Windows Mobile.

    Take away the apps, Android Lollipop is a very smooth, responsive, battery conserving and user friendly operating system. My 2011 Lexus ES350 doesn't fully support it, but having Android Auto working partially is superb. Just saying OK Google, it responds accurately and works without any issues. My Blu Life XL with 2 GB RAM, & 16 GB ROM runs circles around my Lumia 640 XL in every category except for camera & lack of glance screen. It is incredibly fast; almost as fast as my wife's iPhone 6s plus.

    I bought my Blu Life XL just to try out Android and I'm sold. I'll never buy another Windows Phone again. I'll still use Windows tablets and use Microsoft services like Office365, Xbox, Outlook, OneDrive and Groove music, but only on Android. Google Maps is superior to Windows Maps in every way; bottom line, Microsoft's retrenchment plan is causing them to lose out on their die hard users and advocates. Three years ago I would highly recommend Windows Phone. Not any more today.

    Right now, I'll say no.
    I own an SP2, an RT, a 640, 640XL, a 950, a 1520, and an i5SE.
    Only my i5SE is an active phone.
    The rest : 640, 640XL, 950 & 1520 I use on Wi-Fi to test their systems an w10m.
    In a relative post elsewhere, I pointed out that my RT experience seems much more fluid in operating than either 640.
    The 1520 tends to be the better performer; with the 950 a very close 2'nd to it.
    My SP2 & my i5SE do the best for what I use them for.
    My only disappointment is that the MS OS lacks the quickness and fluidity I enjoy and come to expect.
    The apps aren't that much of an issue for me.

    If, and or when, MS every does make a comparable phone to my SP2 & i5SE experience, it will only be then that I reconsider.

    In the short term I will eventually sell off my Lumias.

    I'm using BlackBerry Z10 yet... with a hope to hear something about Surface Phone, since I like to use only top devices and don't like to change phone every year.

    BlackBerry died for me after switching to Android. So, I'll wait for Surface, and, if there will be no rumors about it in nearest future, I'll grab 950XL.

    Also, bought 640 for my mom and her mom... they are happy.

    If windows phone provided the Sirusxm radio app I would not have left windows phone. I had to go to android but I do prefer the windows phone UI. Soon as a Sirusxm radio up is available I will go back to a windows phone.

    I had to leave WM a year ago because my L930 fell into the sea water and I couldn't fix it. I bought Xiaomi mi5 and it's a good phone. Still, I miss WM10 but I can't find a phone with full hd screen and top hardware that has a similar camera of L930 or L950.

    So I guess I'm going to wait forever for a phone like this. The android is not a good OS but the only choice I have now. Soon I'm going to get one of the Olympus new cameras to get back to photography after damaging my L930 which was great while traveling.

    Fyi, never felt the apps gap but the funny thing that I feel it now with android! WM in my experience with it has better apps quality and superior UI. I don't care about iris scanner at all.

    Used to use
    htc 8x, L930 and L1520(totally broken screen)

    You would love the 950xl point & shoot cameras then. Best camera on a phone I've ever used. :-)

    Actually I don't know why I should buy Windows phone, because there is not new features for the phone, and compared with Android, it is more ordinary.

    I would, but I don't have any variants. Was looking to buy an used 950XL, but that didn't worked out well. Signed a new contract with my carrier yesterday, no W10 phones available. I would probably wait a few more months to see if the Idol4S Global Variant or the Elite X3 or anything else shows up. If not, don't know what I'll do. It wouldn't make sense, economically speaking, to buy an used phone since I have some aquisition budget left on my carrier's account. Unfortunately, Europe, the main MSFT market regarding mobile was left with no options available.

    I have been Windows since Win 7 on an LG Continuum than a 920, went to an 830, and now a 950. I love the UI and the ability to personalize it. I do wish there were a few more apps but it has all that I truly need. I will buy again unless the next phones do not continue to improve.

    Have since the begining and will continue as long as its available. Everything i need to do i can do on the browser. Apps for me are a bonus if its there. What i have now meets my needs. Not even anticipating if microsoft does release a surface phone. That feeling of my windows phone as a pockatble pc makes me happy with what and how im using it. It just works.

    My 950 is working great, eventually it won't, it will be outdated or they'll release something with upgrading to. So, yes. I will buy another Murphy mobile device or a Windows 10 mobile of some sort.
