    A phone with a 3000mah batter should last longer than a day. The Droid Maxx phones have 3000mah batteries and last like 3 days!! This is madness!!
    The Droid Maxx was (as its name implies) engineered around having an extreme battery life. That was its only claim to fame and its attempted niche. It had a 3500 mAh battery actually, and a 720x1280 screen, and a Snapdragon S4Pro, not the specs needed for a powerhouse of a phone, but selected to maximize battery life. Not a fair comparison.

    Is everyone getting the advances info update error? I know it's a small issue but definitely driving me nuts.
    That and other issues are testing my patience. Reset and try again or return... those are my choices.

    do you need something that specific app provides or is it just annoying you? just asking since my 920 hasn't been able to update glance (on w10) and is has not hindered performance and doesn't bug me

    Live tiles don't update
    Bluetooth doesn't connect to headset, band or car without a reboot
    Backups don't appear in OneDrive
    Apps crash consistently, especially messaging + Skype
    VVM nag screen now for pin

    interesting:
    my live tiles do update fine
    haven't had bluetooth issues yet
    I see my onedrive backup
    messaging does crash sometimes, but it's less than 2 seconds worth of work to get it back up
    my VVM works fine. no nagging

    have you gone into backup in settings and initiated a backup? the auto backup schedule, from my experience, isn't nightly, and sometimes takes a few days (up to a week) before another backup is done.

    Got 2 today. I have NO problems at all. VVM went thru setup once. Works fine. Apps are still updating, but the ones that have finished have live tile working fine. No crashes. Trained Hey Cortana, works as expected. Hello works super cool, even with very dark sunglasses. Bluetooth working fine. Like the options to tell BT what to do and which apps it can connect to for a device.
    Like I said, so far, Love it!

    The device (640 XL) identifies itself as a WP8 device which is being blocked by my company. Outlook as an independent app will typically get through but the "unapproved" devices such as Windows Phone, Android devices are either quarantined or just blocked. One of the insider builds had Outlook setup as the same type of app as the iOS version but there were issues with the build that would not allow new account additions.

    Here is an example:

    Nexus 6P was blocked by my IT department when adding my corporate Office 365 account info into the phone's settings (new account) yet the MS Outlook app for Android registered perfectly. Galaxy Note 4 had a third party exchange mail system that enabled some kind of corp policy that allowed my device to register. Nexus 6P----no, iphone----yes, 640 XL---no, Note 4---yes. Strange.

    So, how is the 950 Outlook app setup? Same as the fast insider recent build as part of the device (device-centric) or separate like the iOS version?

    Thanks

    Many times, even triggered backups on a 635 with the latest preview release. I can see a backup from the 635, but not the 950.

    First thing: camera is great at low light, and FAST! I can click to take multiple in sequence without having to wait a few seconds in between. It processes them in the background apparently.
    BUT, after activating the insider preview again, got stuck with an error installing 'insider fast configuration update'. Linked inbox suddenly went away as well.
    Screen is bright, very visible even outside. Double-tapping action bar to turn it off is great but double-tap to wake up missing.
    I also got a samsung 64gb sdxc card for around $20, getting my mozo back tonight.

    So, apparently great hardware, software almost there.

    Yes, me too. Are Screenshots broken for any other 950 users? I get an error message when I attempt to take one. Also, did anyone else use the phone restore feature on your 950 when you initially set it up? I used my previous phone's backup (Lumia 1020 running W10 b10581) and many of the apps in the start list are duplicated but the duplicate is grayed out and cannot be selected or removed. Anyone else seeing these issues?

    Works fine for me. Someone else mentioned this problem and discovered it was because they were out of storage space.

    i had a maxx new and it never lasted me more than a day. the 950 also has more advanced/demanding hardware and a slightly bigger screen, those items prob suck up a bit more juice

    Edit: i meant to reply to the original post

    First 2 hours with the phone and it's working fine for me (knock on wood). Hello Windows works better on my Surface Book - I can have it in my lap and it will recognize me. The phone has to be about a foot from my face - I hope it gets better..but it's working for me. No 'advances info update error' yet at least. Double tap is not working :( Hopefully that will come. There seem fewer bugs then there were when the Surface Book just came out.. so i'm pleasantly surprised. I'll let you know if I still feel this way at the end of the day.

    Significantly larger screen. Maybe only slightly bigger in physical dimensions, but that's not what matters. What matters is that it's a much higher resolution screen and that takes more juice.

    Mine finally updated and installed correctly. It seemed to work once all the other apps finished installing. My advice would be to put it on WiFi and wait a hour or two (I know if not much help).

    I got mine at 9am right when the AT&T store opened this morning. Nobody else there (not surprising). They still didn't have the demo phone in place, but did have some signage up where the phone is going to be displayed. Got the all black, since I had seen the white XL at a Microsoft store and didn't really care for the look. I like the phone very much so far. Coming from a 1020 with 8.1, it is night and day as far as speed. Also I've been using a 635 to test windows 10 on. So I'm pretty familiar with how it works already, but again it's like a different world using the 950 in comparison. One not so obvious improvement that maybe hasn't been metioned: Music through headphones/aux is better on 950 vs. 1020. Other impressions - windows 10 apps from microsoft such as groove, weather, and cortana are much better than their predecessors. Getting used to the slightly larger phone. The screen is worth the trade-off of the perfect fit in my hand of the 1020. I can still use the 950 one handed, just not as effectively. The one handed mode in 10 is very cool. I haven't even used the camera, but from what I have seen and heard I may like it more than the 1020. I sure won't miss the saving... delay on the 1020. USB C is great. I like the design of the phone just fine.

    Is the 950 sturdy enough to go naked or does it need a case?
    Go Naked... I am in love with this Phone coming from the Mighty 1520 . I always place screen protectors , but I feel confident without a case for now.

    Coming from the Insider Preview ( which was a nice opportunity ) but I am surprised how much I like this smaller , Lighter ' FLAGSHIP !!!!!! Device. Tight , Snappy and full of cutting edged technology.. I like being the kid that the other kids are jealous of lmao

    Coming from a 920. Picked my 950 (white) up this morning at a local AT&T store (been on a list for it for the last three days) and it is fantastic.
    The camera in particular is ridiculously good. Did a photo from inside my office building looking out and it gets a huge amount of detail from a bright day outside as well as being able to capture the carpet detail in the dimly lit interior. My colleague tried to take the same photo with his iPhone 5S (yes, not a 6 but still) and it couldn't get any carpet detail. Cropped image...

    Windows Hello is pretty quick. It regonizes me in about the time I'd take to swipe up and tap one digit. And when my work mandates a 6 digit PIN then Windows Hello is a lot quicker :)
    Very happy with this...

    Picked up mine today at ATT around lunch. Was happy to find they had several Continum Docks in stock but I didn't pick on up as I still cannot find a use case for it. To each his own I guess.

    Liking the device so far but man, is it hard to say its worth the $630 price tag (after tax and such) Seems not too much different in the hand as compared to my sons L640. I know the differences are on the inside but still, its tough to say this device should cost that much when it has such an up hill struggle to go. Anyways, things are working well. Still having issues restoring from backup as the apps are slow to download and install but the list was over 120+ apps at the beginning. I like the idea of hello but still not working 100% of the time..... May need more training. I'm going to hold off more impressions on the unit until everything is installed and updated. Still stoked to have a new fresh windows phone on my desk. Happy Happy

    Yeah I tried that but will try again. Ty.

    Maybe it's because I have no case yet. Or maybe I got a demo unit since my local AT&T store sold me one. Buy I'm likely just over thinking, seems to be running quite hot even when not used for long periods.
