    It's a great phone that as a Windows phone fan I would get it if I didn't need WiFi calling now.

    But it's a shame MS shipped out with a beta OS. I couldn't and wouldn't recommend the phone to a non enthusiast. because of that.

    Actually, I take it back. I wouldn't recommend to a non enthusiast because of the app gap. Yeah I went there. When I think of the nin techy people I know. They want the apos and no matter how great the OS midge be. They're never embrace it because it's the apo gap

    I love my 950xl..best Windows Phone I have owned. The hardware is top of the line, and if the OS is not perfect yet, it will only get better with updates. There may be a few apps I am missing, but I have all that I really need. So to somebody who likes Windows Phones, I would highly recommend it. To an Iphone or Android user, if the critical apps that user needs is available, and they are not locked into an OS, I would recommend they give it a look.

    Didn't expect to have lots of bugs in the os itself, even the wifi has some issue in 5ghz keeps disconnecting. Tiles wont work (fb, etc.). Bugs must be minimal for a $600 phone.. I hope ms just release update quickly..

    Good thing you don't own an $1100 iPhone. Even goliath has lots of bugs on a new release. No os is immune to bugs. Personally I am pleased at the rate issues are being fixed. WaaS should continue to improve and rollout updates and fixes more rapidly.

    As iOS users can detest price of phone and even market share have no berring on the number of bugs. Both of the big boys have had very severe bugs in their latest offerings.

    Unfortunately there is no perfect phone or os and WP is no worse IMHO.

    I love mine. No major issues. A lot faster and smoother feel than my HTC One M8 running preview.

    I've had mine 4 days and updated to the latest release (10586.36) on day 1. The phone has only frozen once in that time, is incredibly smooth in use, and I saw a drop of only 20% in battery life in 10 hours today after around 15 minutes of use and the rest in standby. As a long term Android user the apps are sufficient for my use -albeit some lack all of the functionality I'm used to - but I'm hopeful the renewed interest in the windows space will drive more updates. The only negatives so far are the power and volume buttons which feel a little cheap, and the light weight of the phone takes some getting used to. Overall I'm very happy with my decision to make the switch (so far!) and I'm looking forward to seeing how the OS evolves.
