    DEAD PHONE OR SO I THOUGHT
    Problem Left phone charging was probably below 30 %
    Had been using it trying a feww games etc
    put it on charge came back to it a hour or 2 later
    nothing pressed power button just got a empty charge battery graphic
    tried everything power button + down and Up no go
    rmoved memory car d no go
    removed memory card and simm
    no go
    checked battery voltage only 3.5 v so problem
    mains charger was obviously not doing the job
    problem solved
    charged for a couple of minutes on usb 3 cable and then back to charger and hey presto phone working again
    weird phone seems to be not charging with stock charger can't check this with multimeter as connections are deep inside usb c connector a bit hard to reach and might short circuit the charger .
    conclusion stock charger is a bit on the duff side, maybe its not working properly or phone is not recognising it for some reason could be a voltage/current/resistve /capacitive /static load spec problem .anyway my contribution to the L950xl scary adventure hope this helps a few people out .up to 38% as I write , great phone otherwise has been stable for a good while .This all happened in the last 30 minutes by the way not good mr gates definitely no caps here mr Msoft get it together .... mr jobs type needed I think..... GoodnighT

    Had the same problem. Even hard reset didn't work. Had to take it to the service center. Not sure what they did (neither are they), but the battery was replaced and a software update had been done. My baby feels better now, still a few hiccups though. Too bad my warranty is up.

    I have the same issue with my phone if the battery goes down to 30-20% is randomly restart. I did think to buy a second battery,and to replaced, but I don't know if this helps.
    Too shame that 950xl is a such a nice piece of kit

    All I can tell you is my experience - and yes, it solved my problem. I got the new battery for some months now and no problems anymore. Probably a bad batch...

    Unfortunately on microsoft store, I can't find it. I have another one for spare, as one of mine 950xl's suffer a badly accident. And I don't think is worth to change the display. Is working, ringing, even on continue is working, but I can't slide to unlock the screen.
    But, that's not the point. With the other battery ( from the crushed one) maybe I had twice this issue.
    I will try with this one. Thank you for suggestion

    Well, I got mine from an Amazon 3rd party seller, the battery was called Microsoft Original BV-T4D, if that helps.

    Chiming in with my experience. It didn't matter what my battery level was, but my random reboot seems to have been lowered when I switched where photos were stored - there were more problems when it was going to my 64GB Sandisk card. There are still occasional freezes and reboots - very frustrating. The camera is the one thing I need it to do reliably.

    I bought this phone mainly for the amazing camera and while the hardware numbers are impressing, the firmware has never been... Still deleting photos and my phone will freeze and won't slide left or right thru the camera roll...

    No such problems here (Lumia 950 XL DS + Samsung Pro + 128 Gb microSD card). Well, thumbnail cache could be faster.

    Battery is OK, even not so good as my old Lumia 1520 battery (RIP).

    I suspect its either a problem with the SD card if you have pictures going there, or a problem with your specific phone but not the model in general. I've had similar problems with other phones that were fixed just be using a different SD card even when the first one worked fine in other devices/uses.

    You can say OK compared to most phones but you can't say OK in the same sentence as 1520. ;)

    Double Tap to Wake is not working, is that normal? Even a hard reset didn't resolve.

    In case of Insider build, it is in Settings - Personalisation - Lock Screen - Double tap to wake up phone.

    After an update, not sure exactly which one, the main camera and selfie stopped working. Now I can use the front facing camera on Instagram, for exemple, but not using the camera app. I keep getting this error and the phone crashes:
    lumia 950xl camera issue 0xa00f4271(0xe801000c)
    whatsapp-image-2017-03-18-01.31.51.jpeg

    Anyone experiencing this? Any suggestions? PS: I am on fast ring developer mode.

    Recently purchased Lumia 950 XL. Got frozen/rebooted 2x in 3 weeks... not too bad. Major problem - and possibly reason for reboots - is unreliable Bluetooth. Both freezes have happened while I was trying to make one or the other BT device work.

    Jabra Tour - connects, but randomly disconnects and reconnects. Sometimes doesn't connect at all. Turning BT off and back on in Settings or restarting phone helps... but only that much. Works fine for a while, from time to time.

    Jabra Classic - same but actually even less reliable. Less working, more disconnecting or not connecting at all..

    Fitbit Charge 2 - mostly works, maybe once in a week refuses to sync, even if it is showing connection (phone can see tracker). Works after phone's restart or toggling BT in Settings.

    Most ironic part? - old BT headset for PS3 (!!!) seemed to work fine. Well, for a few days. Then headset died. Not related to phone, it just... died. So the working phase might have been coincidence, or that thing was one of rare BTs actually working with 950 XL. Maybe I have faulty phone, but I did come across numbers of people complaining about same BT symptoms, so unless it is batch problem, looks like BT is just infamously unreliable at this stage. Which is, like, 16 months after phone was released. I know Win 10 Mobile is not a priority for Microsoft, but still... they should show a bit more pride in what they do, even if it is not as successful as they were hoping for.

    I can't believe the basics aren't working correctly still. Unfortunately my main phone died and I went out wandering today and wanted to get some pics.

    Took around 30 pics with the save to SD card option only to get the camera app hang then it had to be hard reset. Then the repair SD card came on. Saving to internal memory then seemed to work fine though the SD card works fine in everything else it's been in with 45+MB/s transfer rates. I don't know how hard it can be for a windows programmer, if the speed of the SD card isn't high enough, get it to save to internal memory and then transfer it in the background - at least that way you wouldn't loose the pictures. My guess would be that it's not the SD card but the connector to it not being able to process it fast enough.

    Annoyingly you can look back at the pictures then sometimes they go black and don't load or save. Leaving you not knowing if the pictures you've just taken are actually saved.

    At the moment it's my backup phone and i really like some of the features but I couldn't rely on it.

    Can't understand why MS released such a high end device and have such a below low end OS experience for some on it. That should never have been accepted by anyone who develops this OS for MS.

    ? Are you not saving your pics to One Drive automatically? I can wipe my device today sd card and all and as soon as it's back up ALL of my pics are still there to access. Don't have any pics saved on my sd card and through 1 drive I can go back 2 yrs to find pics.

    Microphone is at an unusable level. Requires use of blue tooth headset. Confirmed with recording app. Automatic switch to speaker disabled.
    I've heard of microphone problems happening with just about every type of phone. It's just one of those things that could go out some time.

    Do you happen to be under warranty?

    On my 950xl I've noticed problems, especially since the CU update:

    Extremely high battery drain when in use
    Phone freezing and/or rebooting, usually happens when receiving or making a call
    Phone heats up really bad when playing games now
    Maps and navigation require screen to be on to work. If screen goes off then you get the "Tap to resume navigation" message. This is absolutely unacceptable and if not fixed soon I guess its time to get an Android. I use my phone for nav and rely on the bluetooth spoken nav. Keeping the screen on causes rapid battery drain.
    Randon SD card failures saying its not there anymore requiring a battery pull and restart to get the SD card recognized again.

    Did the WDRT on my L950XL with the new battery installed and so far real good!!! No restarts and the phone's running pretty good. Sorry I didn't try this after the first battery bought with it installed. Just hope that from here with the usual monthly CU that it further improves the phone's functionality.
