    i got mine 950xl for more than a month... and im still happy with it
    i hope the camera features from the 930 will be available soon with the 950xl and 950 like the refocus, actionshot, selfie, and cinemagraph
    Refocus lens on 950XL ... I don't know why they stop one of the more unique app in mobiledom. Although I'm glad its still available on my spare 1520. Friends of mine been boasting about refocus-like function on their Huawei P9, it rankles.

    ... !!

    This is an amusing thread to read. I still have my 950xl, having received it in December '15.

    Lumia 950XL Review – The Perfect Reign

    The device feels less than ideal compared to my x3 but still takes fantastic photos. Better than my son's S7. My only gripes are with the power button being too close and between the volume keys and the horrid sound quality compared to any Iphone or my HTC One M8.

    Now that I'm on a newer phone, the screen on the 950xl seems plastic like. Nit sure why.

    Sent from mTalk
    I take a ton of pictures, so i'm super happy with the camera; took it up skiing today, and my pics turned out great! (I'm trying to add a pic to this reply, but it won't let me for some reason...)



    I know what you mean about the 'plastic' feel of the screen. The IDOL 4S glass screen seems to much more 'premium'; the 4S also is way brighter; i ran it with the brightness on 50%, and it looked amazing. When i got my 950 XL, and set it to 50%, it looked dull; i've set it to 75%, and it looks close to the IDOL, but that 'plastic' look is still there...
    Doesn't your X3 seem to large and clunky? I played around with one in the Microsoft store in Toronto, and it seemed huge!

    Got my 950XL about a week ago, still understanding its configuration, facilities but love it. Love the flat UI layout, much preferable to Apple and Android. Don't utilise many apps, concentrating on Outlook, Edge, Messaging. Attempted Hello but need a quiet, bright area I think, as didn't allow me to logon using my saved profile.

    Bit of a pain to get Outlook and Messaging to alert me when emails, texts arrive but after posting on a windows forum, some kind soul helped me out. The 950XL provides basic descriptions and constant searching to work out some features are required but I'd expect that of any complex phone, including iOS and Android.

    I just don't like the variety of iOS and Android apps and their look and feel and the flat UI of Windows 10 on the phone is perfect for me. Overall, love it.

    when you make a windows hello set up raise your phone parallel to your face upright at a reasonable distance. i think this will make your windows hello better at unlocking your phone when you try to look down on it after. its my own experience

    I am super impressed and very happy with the camera so far! I came over from the Alcatel IDOL S4; it was the perfect phone for me....except for the camera; it was too weak to overcome all of the other phone strengths. the 950 XL camera is noticeably all-around better (focus, colour, detail, balance, exposure, speed). Super happy with it!
    super camera

    I just got mine a few weeks ago; despite all the doom-and-gloom about the future of the platform. I had my beloved Nexus 6 for a long time, but after switching to Cricket and getting a Lumia 650 for free and using it as a test run for a few weeks, I got myself the 950 XL and am really glad I did. I have no complaints as regards apps given how I use the phone, and the way it integrates with my Surface Book is a productivity dream for me. Love the OS, LOVE the camera, the fact that there's still a removable back for switching out batteries and extra storage with the microSD is nice to still see around on a phone. The screen is gorgeous, love the battery life...very happy camper here!

    Just got a 950 XL. Switched from an Icon on Verizon to this on T-Mobile, which has been a nice surprise. I'm getting equally good coverage and better LTE speed. Not sure if I'm happier with the phone upgrade or getting away from Verizon. Anyway, so far, so good. The camera rocks, loving the expandable storage, and battery life has been great. Those last 2 were my only real complaints with the Icon. I'm also really liking Windows Hello.

    Right now I'm thinking of mailing my L950XL DS to MS and telling them to shove it. I've bought 3 batteries, one was OEM and another was the listed as one registered with the same model number as my phone, the 3rd one had a higher number than my device. My device says RM-1116 and the one I bought said RM-1118 so that one was restarting at a ridiculous rate. The OEM was a bit better but still the same result, bought one said RM-1116 as my phone and I thought it was the one and surprise surprise it restarted as well. This is getting beyond ridiculous especially for a device with hardware that rivaled many of the "high-end" devices. Will MS EVER GET ANYTHING RIGHT?????

    Got it a month ago. I had a Lumia 640 LTE before.

    Arrived with version 1511 10.0.10586.318. 1st upgrade was to 1607 10.0.14393.1066, and 2nd to 1703 10.0.15063.251


    Very happy with the camera, both photos & videos look great. Didn't pay for it, I got it from work, our supplier was clearing stock and price was 299 euro (inc. vat).
    I hope MS supports this phone and it gets a few future updates. I won't complain anyway, it is much better than anything I had for a long time now.

    2 crashes/reboots until now.

    The battery was completely empty when i got it, I found that a bit strange.

    So, I've had the 950xl since it was released, Dec. 2015. Never owned anything but a windows phone, started with win mobile flip phone. Just wondering how everyone is using theirs. What apps are you using? I do wish we had more apps, especially useful daily apps e.g.: banking apps, shopping, Amazon, public transportation, etc. There's so many companies that offer an app but not for WP, it's very disheartening and frustrating. That's the only reason I'm considering going over to android when I get frustrated enough or the phone dies.

    Didn't write before my conclusion is being made after month of using... but now I can say with honor: I love my 950 XL!

    My previous BlackBerry Z10 was good... but 950 XL is even better.

    I got my 950xl this past Thursday. Came from 2 928's>2 Icon's to this. I had one Icon on 8.1 and the other on 10, really liked both, but liked 10 better. I wanted the xl since a friend showed me his. I've always been a Verizon guy,of course we all know about their love for wp, NOT. I had seen adds for Mint sim and went for that as well since I couldn't use it on an Icon. So far loving this phone, except for the bluetooth issue, I'll be reading up on that shortly. I love Pandora in my car, I hope there's a fix. There are a few quirks, but I expect them, no phone is perfect! Now go ahead and make that folding surface phone that we're waiting for!!

    What Bluetooth issue? I've been using my 950xl playing music and calls over Bluetooth to various cars and devices flawlessly since I got it last year
