    Thanks, I figured it out. I had not hidden the Tool Tip about swiping up yet. That prevented the buttons from swiping up.
    My 950 battery is not doing very good at all. Used for half a day, I have less than half a charge on it. The specs are no where near right about the battery usage at all.
    This is almost less usage than my 2011 Lumia 920?
    I took 4 calls, 10 SMS messages, responded to email like normal.
    I've only used 10 GB of storage and it keeps hounding me that I have used up my storage. It's a 32 GB Phone?? lol

    When my Lumia 950 is locked, the speakers begin to rustle softly and I can periodically hear a "click" sound , anyone else got this?
    I keep getting this too. Only cure I've found is to reboot the phone. I can't work out what triggers it to start though.

    Version: 1511
    OS build: 10.0.10586.0
    Firmware: 01078.00017.15454.29031

    I've had the 950 for 14 days now and didn't have a problem with it until now. I love the phones interface and design. Price can come down $100. Continuum has real potential. Of course something this new comes with its issues. In 14 days the major issues I ran across is this:

    - Constantly sending data/receiving from cellular and wifi causing the Battery to warm up and drain fast.
    - Finishing touches after Picture taking but found if you close the camera app and go straight to photo app it clears it up right away.
    - Email and Calendar syncing started to act up and currently won't sync, trouble shooting it now.
    - Some apps not working like they should (at least it seems that way)
    - Get a notification saying I'm low on space (This device has 29.1 GB free, and I have a 64 GB MSD card installed)

    I'm pretty sure the sending and receiving issue is caused from the pending windows update and its tasking the phone to near/max making it heat up like most windows devices do during an update. As well as interfering with mail syncing (possibly)? getting a Error code: (0x8007274c) I'll do the recommended steps to resolved the syncing issues when I get the update to go through. Update won't download through cellular data and the recent windows build has issues with my works wifi (security ect) so I'm trying to do this on a limited network which is most likely why its just spinning its windows doing nothing but draining my battery. It would be nice to be able to stop an update if needed and be less in the background so I can see whats going on. (pending update is: OS build 10.0.10586.29) While writing this I thought to change my storage options for downloads and new apps to be set to (this device) Something to think about when trying to install OS builds/Firmware unless Microsoft bypasses these settings?

    When the phone worked it was fantastic! but currently its a warm paperweight. Apologies if this read feels like a rock randomly rolling down a hill because that is how it feels to me at this moment in time.

    Update:
    The change to storage options didn't seem to help even after a restart. Must be the limited wifi/works firewall? I'll try again when I get home. Had to pull battery to keep it from rebooting (to resume OS update) after I try to power it off.

    Update:
    A factory reset/wipe fixed all my issues except the finishing touches after a photo is taken. Made sure to turn off auto update and careful not to power off the phone if there is a update pending (powering off is like resetting). I suspect you need to be very mindful on when to start windows updates and have a stable and sound WiFi connection or risk the update hanging up. As far as Apps I'm sure there are issues that will iron out in time as well as the current issues. Hardware defects are always possible in anything you buy.

    I'm fully aware of all of this, regardless of the fact even with rich capture disabled and going into pro mode my photos are still automatically retouched. The example pictures I attached earlier in the thread was an example of a picture taken in pro mode.
    I have the dual SIM and this one must be defective cause those are disabled on mine too and photos are horrendous. I may have to go back to my 1520.

    Using 950 since last 2-3 days , bugs ive found so far :

    1. Phone reboots during Windows Hello Authentication. It doesnt reboot always , but say at least once a day.
    2. Gallery does take time to recently clicked pictures. Takes around 4-5 seconds to show up.

    And , after photo is taken , "giving final/finishing touches" takes awfully long time. Say around 8-10 seconds or even more. Kinda frustrating.

    Can anyone tell me how living images work? Not all images captured are living images right ?

    And I am still on the 586 build. I heard there is 586.29 build out for everyone but my phone still hasnt picked it yet. I am in India with Vodafone as carrier but carriers doesnt matter here as its an unlocked version.

    Though store did pick update around 30 apps.

    I got the popping and hissing sound from the speaker yesterday after placing my 950 xl on a charging plate. Only way to stop it was a reboot.

    OK, The Lumia 950, I have disabled just about every thing from using background data.
    5 hrs from a full charge down to 20% sitting in my pocket 90% of the time.
    I'm really at a loss at this point, there is something drastically wrong with the device to continuously discharge like this.
    It is almost always warm from the battery discharging.
    Just tried charging it again. Got it up to 70%.
    Put it in my pocket, did a few things around the office.
    Reached in my pocket, phone is hot to touch.
    Battery down to 45% after 30 minutes. No calls, no texting, did nothing with it.
    I think I am going to full factory reset and wipe and setup as a new device instead of restoring from a backup. Everything is on the OneDrive anyhow. Could be one lousy app not showing itself to be suspect.

    Hi Chris check your windows updates. If you see it's downloading but not progressing its most likely hung up. Causing your battery drain and heating up. Factory reset/wipe fixed this for me. Immediately after boot up go straight to windows update and turn off the auto update. Make sure not to power off the phone or it will try to install pending updates and don't defer updates it will keep you from being able to install OS updates for several months and can cause a problem of the spinning windows issue draining and heating up the battery (maybe a bug). Getting updates to take seem touchy and fragile right now. Since the factory reset/wipe I haven't seen the new OS build show up.

    - Limit background apps, microsoft diagnostic, syncing, and screen brightness for extended battery life.

    - If you know your not going to use your phone for a period of time turn on battery saver (can pin to start) and add exceptions if necessary.

    I also have the sound problem when the screen is off its makin a small sound every 5sec or so. And some small bugs here and there, but the biggest issue i have is the speed on this thing, its slow and resuming is still a ting with everything i do....

    Otherwise i like the phone and i will keep it, so lets hope som apps and a greater support with the device from devs and so on joins the van, we are a small group of people so we dont need a train...yet.

    Thanks for the advice, I had checked updates and background app allowances.
    It didn't make sense though to kill all of them and it was still draining.

    I definitely recommend to people not to restore from older Lumia device backups.
    Setting it up as a clean phone last night without restoring from backup seems to have repaired the problem.
    The biggest drag, is downloading that entire US Map again takes about 2.5 - 3 hrs even on 100 Mbps fiber circuit.
    So far today, normal usage, I've only used about 10% of the battery from 6am to 1pm..... knock on wood.
    Even with a Bluetooth ear piece hooked up and WiFi on all day.
    I did kill a few app notifications just out of my own needs finding them unnecessary.

    My bad experiences with the Lumia 950XL :(

    1)Continuusly Low Storage messages: (since today)
    "Low storage
    Your phone is low on storage space, but there's free space on your SD card.
    Visit Settings > System Storage and move apps to your SD card, or delete some files to free up space."

    While there is barely storage space used???
    This Device: 5.18GB used out of 29.1GB
    SD Card (D:) 3.95GB used out of 29.7GB


    2) App store issues:
    - updates do not get installed (endless waiting loop)
    - icons frequently disappear from the updates list
    - Checking for updates get also stuck (endless waiting loop)
    (Sometimes a restart helps)
    - Lumia Offers App is no more searchable in the store??? (I still got

    3)Lumia free DisplayDock Offer (since the beginning 3 weeks ago)
    -After 3 weeks still no free DisplayDock effer (in Lumia Offers App)
    Also the Lumia Offers App seems to be disappeared from the store???
    Actions:
    Reinstalled the Lumia Offers app several times
    Contacted support 2 weeks ago: response we've got server issues (I don't believe that and if there would be why is this still not fixed 2 weeks later?)

    4)Phone overheats very rapidly: (since the beginning 3 weeks ago)
    -After several minutes normal usage (no gaming) just reading mail or checking for updates or taking photos it gets enourmously hot,
    sometimes too hot that the camera refuses to work (message that phone has to cool down to be able to handle the camera app).

    5)Phone restarts sometimes at random. (since the beginning 3 weeks ago)

    6)Very low battery life +/- with normal usage (checking mail a few times a day) (since today)

    7) Just found a new one, phone doesn't lock anymore, when I unlock I suddenly just have to swipe up, no more iris scan or pincode prompt???

    Other things I tried to fix issues:
    -restarted dozend of times
    -removed battery
    -performed factory reset (this resolved another issue with images in emails, none of the images in html parts of emails was shown?)

    Q: I did not install the latest win10 update myself, does this update get pushed enforced in the background?
    I've got version 1511, is that the updated version?

    regards,
    Dave

    Lumia 950
    Version 1511
    10.0.10586.0/29

    1. Alarm
    When you open the details of an alarm you've set, or create a new alarm, it's not possible to preview the Default alarm sound.
    The "Default" sound is listed, yet when you want to change this setting you can quick select Vibrate only or pick from your music or from ringtones. If you select the ringtone option all the sounds are displayed with the preview play in front of the name, EXCEPT the top option which is Use default (which you cant preview). Note the sounds at the very bottom (after alarm 6): Ahead of Time, Archipelago, Beep Alarm, Birds in the Woods, Clokkastrophe, Early Chill, Epic Day, Lumia Clock, Riverbank Dawn, and Torchbearer.
    If you go to
    Settings -> Personalization -> Sounds -> Manage App Sounds or
    Settings -> System -> Notifications and Actions
    and select Alarm & Clock, the Notification sound once again says Default without the option to preview it! So where is this mythical Default sound? Also, the sounds I mentioned previously (which were available directly in the Alarm app) are not available here.
    Checked, and turns out this is wrong: Also, the alarm volume is controlled by Media + Apps slider and not by the Ringer + Notifications slider. So if you silence the Media + Apps before sleep, you wont hear the alarm!

    2. Pressing at performs paste
    Dont know how to recreate this one, but happened a couple of times. Quite frustrating if youre trying to write an email address, and when you press at, a paste is performed with whatever you have in the clipboard.
    Changing the language on the keyboard got rid of this one. Interestingly, the only connection I can find is that I use the Croatian keyboard which (on a desktop) has the at on the AltGr + V (which is basically Ctrl + Alt + V), and paste is just Ctrl + V.

    3. Automatic update + SIM PIN
    Automatic update schedules a restart at 3:00 in the morning. On restart, the phone gets stuck at the SIM PIN input screen, which in turn disables the phone until you enter the PIN (in the morning).

    4. SIM PIN
    When starting your phone, if you cancel the PIN input, its hard to get the phone to ask you the SIM PIN again. Back in WP8.1 the SIM PIN entry was displayed if you started the Phone app, but now when you start the Phone app it actually starts, but doesnt ask for the SIM PIN (the Dial pad is displayed). It does say PIN required on the top, but nowhere to enter it. Dialling even a single digit finally brings up the SIM PIN entry.

    5. Conversations (skype images)
    Images sent via Skype are not displayed. Unsupported content in this message is displayed (even though the image is stored in the cloud and displaying it is trivial).

    6. Calendar
    The calendar live tile has reverted to WP8 look with all the text on the tile being the same size. WP8.1 had the day and date justified to the right, and the date in double the size font for easier readout.

    7. Calendar view
    The month view has again reverted to the WP8 look with the screen split, and the month view on the top and the details on the bottom. WP8.1 had a clearer month display, especially if you have multiple calendars.

    8. Lock screen + weather
    Weather is no longer available as a lock screen. My picture, Sample images, Bing and Twitter are the only options. Cant understand why weather is not an option. There is an option to use weather as a quick status, but allegedly that one only displays when theres a weather warning. It is possible to show weather as a detailed status though, but I have the calendar there.

    9. Maps
    HERE trinity is still missing from the store, and with it all the Favourites saved within them. Not possible to import the Favourites from HERE to the built in Maps app.

    10. Restoring from OneDrive backup
    If you DONT enter your Microsoft account when initializing the 950, there is no way to restore from the backup later. When you later enter the MS account, the device wont ask to restore from a backup. Additionally, if your device name is the same as your last backup, your old backup will be overwritten. Bye, bye backup.

    11. Screen + Touch
    There is a significant delay when swiping left from the start screen to the Apps, but this might be a cosmetic delay. Ive found the screen response in Maps (especially when multitouch is used) is horrible.

    12. Maps multitouch mess
    When moving two fingers up/down, the map should just tilt up and down. Instead its combining the up/down and (slight) left/right to rotate as well, making a jittery mess. If (general) up/down motion is used, only tilting should occur.

    13. Camera
    Adding the finishing touches Nuff said.

    I have this same problem. I often have to shrink the size of the email message so that I can fit the entire message on the screen.

    Apparently the mail app uses Word to render the email and it has all sorts of problems with high dpi screens. Its 'normal' for the phone unfortunately (or any high dpi phone using windows). One can only hope that Microsoft fix this soon as update to use proper rendering tools.

    I've noticed (and confirmed that at least one other person is having this issue) that there is an issue with miracast wireless video playback with my Lumia 950. I am connecting wirelessly to a NetGear PTV3000 hooked up to my TV. The Lumia Icon can wirelessly playback the same video very smoothly, but the Lumia 950 stutters...both on the phone screen and on the TV. These videos are various formats, but not streaming, they're just large video files on my device...streaming via continuum is just as bad as screen mirroring.

    Luckily I have another streaming device that supports DLNA streaming, (a western digital HD live or whatever)...so I have been playing my videos using the Lumia PlayTo app.

    Still though it sucks that I upgraded my phone, thinking that it would do everything better...only to find that it's a step back. hoping it's a windows 10 mobile issue and that they can push a fix.
