    On the Microsoft website there's no mention of FM radio in specifications of 950. But 950 XL has it. Maybe mistake? I can't believe 950 will be without it. Even 535 and 640 has it.

    Agreed. Hopefully, it's just a mistake.

    The German Microsoft store lists both as having an FM receiver.

    The Lumia 950XL also seem to have:

    Gorilla glass 4 (the 950 Gorilla Glass 3?)
    Liquid cooling (the 950 don't?)

    Can anyone confirm all these differences or maybe know if there is more?

    The Lumia 950XL only has liquid cooling because of the notorious heating Snapdragon 810 chip, not Lumia regular 950 which has Snapdragon 808 processor, confirmed by the pocketnow hands on video, url: . And the Windows central article has confirmed that Lumia 950 has Gorilla glass 3 whereas Lumia 950XL has Gorilla Glass 4. And, the Lumia 950 has PMA and Qi wireless charging, whereas Lumia 950XL has only Qi charging.

    What I understand gorilla glass 4 will survive a drop better, gorilla glass 3 will better survive scratches.

    Hmm, GSM arena, says it does... also ign seems to think the 950 also has it . Plus neither article has been corrected....looks like we're going to have to wait until the reviews come out.

    So does the 950 have FM radio or not?

    Mentioned by Dan in his AMA thread. The native FM Radio app appeared to be missing but he got a signal using a 3rd party app.

    Just to confirm what others have stated. The fm app is missing on the phone but the hardware is there and it works. Just need to download a fm radio app.

    FYI, the FM radio built-in app is not missing on the 950XL.

    We discussed this a few days ago. It seems the problem is a restore issue as near as we could tell. My 950 has it, whereas others didn't. Search the 950 forum for the other thread.

    I wondered the same thing (no FM Radio app) after having the 950 powered up for the first time and thumbing through all the default apps. I certainly hope it appears soon as I used it occasionally on ALL my previous Lumia's. Guess I'll have to keep my Zune HD 32 around a bit longer ;).

    I'm wondering when the digital TV tuner will be included in cell phones. Wasn't there one being made for the South American market over a year ago?

    It has the capability, the problem is the FM Radio app from Microsoft is missing.

    You can download a 3rd app, that's what I did and the FM radio works fine.

    Actually, I think the app is installed, but silently. I downloaded a third-party app, and closed it. I went to pause the playback by pushing the volume, and then pause. I also clicked on the frequency displayed there, and it brought me to the FM Radio app from 8.1. I know it's the same from not only the looks, but the fact that it has my saved stations. Not in my app list, but there.

    According to a Microsoft UK Store, including the sales agent the UK/Europe variant at least has Gorilla Glass 4 as well as a FM radio, also it says it has an OLED display as opposed to an AMOLED one.

    You're right about that. I did what you mentioned and the native FM Radio app popped up. Then, if you tap the three dots in the lower right corner, it gives you the option of pinning it to the Start screen. I now have my old FM Radio app on my 950 but the program doesn't appear in the list of apps.

    Hmm on my 950, fmradio stops saying it doesn't support this device. And it's not a restoration issue: I've started from scratch on my new 950, without restoring any backup.

    In the UK just got the Lumia 950 from Carphonewarehouse unlocked.
    When I download a FM radio app its says fm radio not supported on this device!!

    Anyone in the UK have same problem.
    This is a del breaker for me no FM radio and its going back.
    I use it for listening to football and the match's (championship) are not broadcast over the internet.

    So love phone so far but no FM no keep.

    I got intel from a MVP that MS have on purpose disabled the FM tuner on the 950 (tuner is on the 808 chip anyway) because of "quality and performance issues". For now we're supposed to use third party apps. But third parties don't seem to work on FR or EU 950.

    MS have amended their data sheet to remove the tuner from the 950 page. They even have a stupid FAQ "does my 950 have a fm tuner ? No, not all Lumias have a fm tuner". What? ALL Lumias have a fm tuner.

    the 550 seems tuner-less too.

    I have the radio working with a 3rd party app on L950 ATT_US. Reception is as good as it ever was, tuner may have been the issue (yeah, half-baked). Do 3rd party apps work on unlocked versions of the FR and EU 950 variants?
