    My Acer Primo says phone and it's on the 09/2018 update. Don't ask how I did it, I'm not sure myself.
    The Primo has no clue either, but I am sure its happy to be along for the ride :)

    How is the Primo. The complete package including the keyboard is $99 on eBay. This is the sealed, brand new variety.

    The most underrated phone ever. Now that I was able to bring it up to 1709 I can easily rank this phone as a top 3. There is no clear #1 because everybody knows the 950 series is the top dog in the camera department but it lacks a fingerprint scanner, decent sounds and the screen is dim and dull as hell. The Idol 4S has the best audio but lacks NFC and has a s**t camera. The Elite x3 has a very nice display (maybe the best), average audio, average camera and the best fingerprint scanner on a Windows phone. The Primo is tied with the x3 in display (it's gorgeous), 2nd place for audio, 2nd place for camera (only with the 1709 update) but lacks fingerprint scanner and NFC. Even though it has the same RAM and CPU as the 950, I'm thoroughly convinced it performs better than even the 950 XL. It doesn't get hot under any circumstances except under prolonged Edge sessions.

    Even if you keep it at Threshold 2, it performs very well but the FCU updates elevate the camera past the x3 and way past the Idol. You can't beat it for $100 regardless of OS especially with the full Continuum package.

    I agree with what fatclue_98 stated except for his take on the Lumia 950s display. I currently draw the 950 XL as the best Windows phone display around imo. The 1520 to me is 2nd and Elite X3 would be my 3rd. If the Elite X3 had more control over their oempanel driver (like the Lumia Color Profile does) I would almost bet it would be number 1.

    I know the 950 XL can peak to 700+ nits of brightness and the color accuracy is one the best out there with at the time had one of the lowest DeltaE deviations and might still be. Over time though OLED panels degrade and who knows what else may have affected the display through the slew of updates over the years. On certain FW/OS builds the display output and Sunlight readability are way different than on the Newest FW and OS builds. I honestly have been looking around for some time now for cheaper replacement OLEDs for the 950 XL because I know I need them and will so in the future. They are still crazy expensive though at times $150.00 US or around there.

    The Lumia 950 is almost as good as the XL models display just not as bright and calibrated a bit differently of course.

    My 950xl said device, which I changed to phone. I'm fairly certain my Idol 4S said phone.

    You think it just opened up to getting 1709? Or did you have to spoof it as a 950?

    Want more dual sim lol

    Spoof and a lot of work. Make sure you have long fingernails because you will be biting them. It's worth it though.

    Yeah, I have a different username over there. I rarely visit that site anymore, too many spoiled little brats that don't know how to follow directions or want you to fix their bricked devices over the internet. Tell one of them little bastards to go f**k themselves even via PM and you get a lifetime ban, hence the other username. The notion of a free exchange of information and ideas has taken a hard turn off the road and I'm not down with that.

    I have a Ph.D. in sarcasm, it helps in dealing with children with entitlement issues. That's why this site is a pleasure to visit. The moderation staff is the best in the business.
