    Hello all.
    I've been facing this issue since I got this phone. When I try to upload videos on whatsapp the phone gets extremely slow and hot. It almost becomes unusable untill the video upload is completed which itself is painfully slow.
    Im on official latest build .420
    Not using any sd card and the memory has pretty much empty space left. Its the same even when there's no other app is running in background. Anyone else facing the issue?
    The worst part is that I cant upload videos in back ground of any app. I have to keep the app open to upload the video. So the "multi tasking" is pretty useless here.

    I believe it's an issue with whatsapp and not the phone necessarily

    I am having the same issue on WhatsApp and Viber as well on my Lumia 950. Didn't have this issue on my Lumia 930. I'm running the consumer version and not the preview builds.

    Yep, I'm almost positive Chintan is correct here.
    I've texted some pretty large videos, concert clips and such, with zero issues, from my microSD card.

    So guys we had a Festival so I had to take photos for last two days and share it with family. It was extreme disappointment and embarrassment in front of those android fans who I always try to convince how good wm10 and lumia 950 xl is. Phone froze twice had to take out battery and got slow while sharing videos and photos. I don't know what is wrong with my phone :(

    I am sorry I can't use the option of WDRT as it will take a lot of time which I can not afford

    then you're stuck with a device that may not behave perfectly 100% of the time. There is a new firmware out that helps in improving the battery and camera experience
