    Well I am talking about CSR Racing and it has/had serious lagging issues (also on other 950XL)

    Another App... Whatsapp...if you want to send a video, you have to stay in the app otherwise it starts sending it over and over again....

    Messenger/not the beta: Every time when I am going into the app it says syncing or connecting to the servers, sometimes for minutes (does not matter if I am on a 100MBit Line, or LTE, or different networks) even after hard reset

    I am on : OS: 10.0.10586.318
    Firmware: 01078.00038.16082.36032


    As I heard Microsoft has sold his Phone-department/division...so new phone is unlikely
    *Never tried CSR racing so can't say
    *Whatsapp is another app that is not made for windows 10 so you're going to have issues.
    *MEssenger not made for windows 10, you can try the beta, but that may give you other issues, though some people have been enjoying it. Has way more features.
    *Ahh you're on the production build and i'm on redstone. While redstone has cooler features and better in general, it's not exactly stable. For instance I went to my phone and noticed it had rebooted for no reason. Wha? Hopefully they start ironing it out because it's getting close to the release date.

    MS is going to be building some device that has cellular connectivity. Not sure if it will be considered a phone, but will have phone features. And it will not be available through carriers or anything just directly from MS and likely at a premium price. The OEMs will likely copy whatever they release and start releasing their own variants.

    Yes this is exactly the problem....you will have problems with the most basic and required apps.

    - Whatsapp/messenger are both windows 10 compatible (should not be a problem at all)


    I just got my HTC 10 (no ad) and its good to be back on Android again...without any problems.... I just hope that the audio recording would be the same if not better..


    So I am already selling my 950 XL .... if someone wants it, Germany as location....

    What limitations on Continuum?

    Works for me pretty damn good.
    And no, I don't have the dock yet.
    It is a bit slow over wireless, but that is to be expected, still works.
    It isn't available for all Windows Mobile devices. You probably have a Lumia 950 or 950 XL.

    Maps in W10M with first class offline capability is more normal to me. :)

    And what do you mean "no normal youtube apps?" What's wrong with myTube, Tubecast, MetroTube, etc.? Many folks commented they like these over Google's YouTube app on Android.
    You realize Google Maps has offline capability?

    I have used the youtube apps and used to like MyTube, but it isn't better than YouTube on Google. I don't know why none of the apps can minimize the video while you search other videos to watch. Maybe the only thing better in MyTube is downloading the videos or audio.

    Funny, i switched from my Lumia 950XL to an android Leeco Le 2(awesome chinese phone), cause i was sick tired of the lack of apps, the lack of updates for the apps that are available, the Windows10 mobile bugs, the wifi/bluetooth connection issues and also the cheap feeling of the 950XL polycarbonate body. I guess you won't be ble to convince your friend, also if you really are his friend you shouldn't advice him a windows phone

    W10/W10M native Maps app has Offline Maps integrated at OS level, Worldwide.

    myTube! is much better than official YT apps on other platforms (UI, performance and smoothness, features, download and background/lockscreen capabilities etc).

    I used Perfect Tube yesterday, and it was pretty impressive also.

    Little bit extreme there, don't you think? - "also if you really are his friend you shouldn't advice him a windows phone". Shouldn't that be up to the person he is advising to decide? I don't think commenting on looking at a windows phone instantly means you are nobody's friend....

    Yah they are using a backwards compatibility layer so won't run as well nor support all features.

    But congrats. I wasn't a fan of the htc m8 but the 10 at least got rid of that annoying HTC bezel in the front.

    And you need to be a better salesperson. "this phone sucks so hard, all these issues, who wants to buy it?" haha.

    The problem is with the backwards compatibility (although in the description says made for windows 10 or something like that) and this is why you cannot stick to the windows phones, it is good at the beginning, something new, something different, but as I stated, I dont want to wait 10-15 seconds just to be able to start one spotify music when it is almost immediately started on an Android phone with the same pricetag... or the problems I stated below.

    I had the m7-m8 before, so for me its gooooood :)

    If I won't be able to sell the 950XL (which is currently 100% sure cause they don't want to buy it for 300Euro) I am gonna keep coming back and see what's new...

    I never said that this phone sucks so hard ...or something like that, it has its issues I don't want to live with (if not necessary)

    This phone (950XL) does what I need well enough for now, and keeps getting better - and like I said before; I seem to always be anticipating the next build (insider) too see whats new, I rarely experience that with an usual purchase; it usual goes something like: after purchase; how long until its obsolete? This purchase has has differently kept me entertained (good and bad).

    The fact is I am not used too any other OS, so I KNOW I would get SOOOOOOO frustrated trying to find things on a new OS, and therefore would be presented with the situation of limited app":^) - I will sick with Windows OS; now, that is not to say I wouldn't change hardware, but not the OS.

    Maybe now you can try the insider with your 950XL (if you are going to keep it:):):), you always give a pertinent post, so I know your input would be valuable for the rest of us.

    Unfortunately Windows phones as cool as they can be are a dying breed. With Windows phones Microsoft is unfortunately in the same position mac was in the pc world many years ago.....except that windows phones aren't going to make a big surge in market share and become competitive. They are just going to fade away. Its really frustrating to be using a phone you like that is offering less and less and slowly dying. You're best off not trying to convince your friend to change anything...he'll just switch back and get mad at you for wasting his time.

    Enjoy your Windows phone experience while you have it

    Nobody knows what the future is going to be...High End Smartphones are becoming less important to Manufacturers because they are becoming saturated in the marketplace. ANY Manufacturer that is worthy of future existence, better be looking at the next big thing (whatever that is).

    Plus, Windows has just signed a patent deal with a Large Chinese manufacturer, so we may see the the next big High End Windows Phone manufactured in China for less money and a huge potential market, yielding more attention to the phone market segment.

    If you ask me, Windows is gearing up for next season (retooling the OS) - as it were, Windows WAS a dying breed (along with a lot of dead, and dying breeds out there) - but with a whole new OS, they have as good a chance (maybe better) to be the next Phoenix rising as anyone else.

    It's the OS, and what it will provide.

    I really loved my 1520. It's still a great phone. I like it better than the Nexus 6P that I'm not using. I left purely for the app gap. You aren't going to be able to make that up with windows phone in the current climate. Honestly I'd have stuck with Windows phone if they'd have worked with Google apps better. The lack of Google app integration (not Microsoft's fault) and the app gap really cripples the phone. I still keep my 1520 around and even pop my sim in it and drive it around because I like it so much. It's a shame that the apps just aren't there.
    Funny you should post this... I was a Note 2 user for two years and went to the 1520... after nearly two years I decided to go back to Android and got the 6P about 3 months ago... Some things I found really annoying about it. I made two videos explaining them. The second video i made today explaining why I'm selling my 6P and why I switched back to the Nokia 1520.

    And this one from today:

    W10/W10M native Maps app has Offline Maps integrated at OS level, Worldwide.

    myTube! is much better than official YT apps on other platforms (UI, performance and smoothness, features, download and background/lockscreen capabilities etc).
    I never used the native map/Nokia Drive because it wouldn't tell me the side of the road that my destination was on, which was too annoying. I used a different app that did not have the map integrated at the OS level. I'm really not sure why that matters. Its not like Cortana can work without the internet anyway. The Google maps lets you download even a small location. In some ways it is worse than just downloading a state, but I really only travel in a single city on my daily activities, so that is all the space I need to waste on maps.

    MyTube is great, but being able to rotate the phone to portrait and scroll the suggested videos is a better solution than putting the video in the background. Same thing with the small video in the corner. Performance and smoothness are no different. I'm not sure what features other than downloading videos without using a different app is the only feature I'm aware of (and I really never used it). Chromecast is built in. Background playing works with Red (which you get for free if you subscribe to Google Play Music). I'm not sure what lockscreen capabilities you are referring to. The notifications let you pause and play and next videos from the lockscreen or any other for that matter. If downloading videos without using a separate app is super important, then Windows Phone has apps that do that. I haven't looked for one on Android because the Youtube app is sufficient for my needs.

    Windows Phone has features that are unique, but these just aren't them.

    It isn't available for all Windows Mobile devices. You probably have a Lumia 950 or 950 XL.
    That's not a limitation, it's a new feature that is not supported on older devices.
    Calling that a limitation is not intellectually honest.

    Settings > Update and security > Windows Insider Program > Choose your insider Level > "your option": Fast / Slow (Fast is pretty good right now for the 950XL; and your 950XL is now a backup:):):)

    If I remember correctly, you will be emailed a confirmation, or a welcome, or something. and your phone will go through a restart.

    After Restart;

    Setting > Update and security > Phone Update > Check for updates

    Will download and install (should anyway) the insider ring you choose (fast or slow).

    NOTE:

    - will probably take a while (couple builds back it took hours, for me)
    - also: if the screen gets stuck on the Windows (logo) splash screen, during the reboot process; be patient and give it a least an hour, if it does not proceed to the next "we are working on it, it will be worth the wait" (or something like that) screen, than do a soft reset to push it along. some insiders (myself included) had to do multiple soft resets and point. BUT, the last one was smooth as silk, so it my not be a problem for you.

    Regarding going back to the Production Level, or Threshold, that CAN be done, I have never gone back or done a hard reset, but there are a lot of posts with good step-by-step instuctions (also on the Web)...just do a search, and find a detailed account of how to, you shouldn't have a problem.

    Good Luck if you pull the trigger":^)
