    That is rough dude. Sounds like a dud unit. My phone charges soooooooooooooooooooo fast! It does like 0-100 in less than 90minutes (faster than my car!). Get it replaced ASAP imo.
    Yea I will be when I get home next week, mean while it's just sitting there looking pretty while the good old 930 is trooping along. My 920 actually died the other day, 3 years on, my mate was using it and dropped it from the second floor to concrete RIP lol.

    Yeah got my XL with XBOX yesterday - its a mono sim, really love it, will post R/V later
    Also its a good idea for Infamy79, u can get it via Borderlinx- I have tried them, they r really good

    This is what I want to know too, if none of the Australian models are dual SIM then I'll probably try to import one from the US

    Got my 950XL Tuesday last week. had to do reset at the beginning as i was unable to add accounts on the first start up. This is now corrected. The battery life is not the best even when social apps not signed in and syncing. I have changed the setting for them not to sync as this chews up the battery. The only active apps are message, phone, email/outlook which should not be chewing up the battery. This morning I charged the battery and had also done so last night. I have not made any phone calls and not received text messages etc and battery was down to 13% by 6:30pm. Screen was also off except when in use which was not frequent.

    Two consecutive nights phone calls dropped out minimum 2 times - I noted that when I was receiving a phone message, email or text message the existing call I was on dropped out.

    I am getting low storage message when I have used under 5G, the storage setting recognises that I have only used under 5G but the phone keeps telling me I have no storage capacity and need to insert an SD card.

    The phone tells me in the backup & updates setting that I have phone updates to do and gives me the option to download then sits on 0% continuously, checked the current version on the phone and it is up to date?????

    The phone heats up incredibly and is way too hot when the charger is plugged in. It's unusually hot and as mentioned the battery life is extremely poor.

    I much prefer the WIndows Lumia over the iphone any day, I just hope these bugs will be sorted and the battery life improves.

    I have had similar problems, have a read of the Battery forum, I have have fiddled with settings especially glance, email every 15 min rather than push, background apps, screen brightness 30 & now am getting better battery life

    I am facing similar problems with battery - I have deactivated Windows Hello, decreased brightness, battery life has slightly increased, but its not pairing properly with my Microsoft band 2. Also I faced the Low storage message today for the first time inspite of only using around 5 gigs,
    Love the phone, hopefully small problems get rectified soon

    That's not true... I had windows 10 on my 1020, a fresh start on my 950 XL did not restore the SMS.

    I did a fresh start with the same email address, got all my text msges! Thanks SteveSAPA!

    I thought all my problems were solved, but extreme drain and heat issues again under little to no use.

    If I use it whilst on charge it drains quicker then it charges,

    Going to attempt to remove SD card and see what's the deal there...

    On a side note, where has "Hey Cortana" gone ? I can't find where to activate it in her settings...

    Didn't we agree that you have got yourself a dud unit? Time for a replacement! Such issues are baffling to me as I am not experiencing any of those! Battery performance seems to be improving every day (I'm using it less maybe?). Draining quicker than it charges is outrageous... (even when playing heavy games). Also, Hey Cortana is definitely not available on W10M outside USA it seems (Unlike 8.1). Canadians are having the same problem haha. But this can't be too far around the corner.

    I think only those who pre-ordered with Optus are eligible for it.

    We had, but then a I woke and it was all fine for two whole days, got a good day out of it every thing was working it was devine.

    Put my S.D card in it and kaput, it's even worse now. Apps are crashing and same battery and heating issues, so I took out the card and nothing has has corrected

    Re Hey Cortana, well I'm glad I wasn't the only one looking for it, but MS should make it clear that it's North America only at the moment.
