    No battery drain issues for me yet. Went to bed last night with it at 100%, played with it a bit before going to sleep. Woke up it was at 87%. Not bad.

    Only bug I've come across is the Outlook Mail not opening pictures in emails. I didn't notice it until after I had synced all my music and everything so I don't really want to do a hard reset after all of that. Hopefully MS puts out a fix soon. Ah well.

    For anybody wondering about audio quality:

    Earlier I synced my 950 with my itunes library using the Windows Phone app for desktop like I had done in the past with my Lumia 1020. It all worked flawlessly and even synced my playlists and album art etc.

    Audio quality with earphones is VERY good albeit a little on the quiet side. Probably the closest to iPhone audio quality of any phone I've tried (I'd say the iphone still has the best audio quality using earphones). The equalizer is good and the ability to create a custom equalizer profile is awesome. I tested this using a pair of RHA-t10i earphones.

    After two weeks of using my 950 I have decided that I can live with the win10 bugs and cheap feel of the phone. I know that I wouldn't be happier with an iPhone or nexus, but I wish that mobile win10 were fully baked. Here are my main complaints.

    1. It is ridiculously difficult to close browser tabs. The X is so small.
    2. Driving mode refuses to actually ignore texts.
    3. Apps crash all the time. Today it was photos and messaging.
    4. Battery life has actually been pretty bad for me.
    5. The phone's design is uninspired.

    I don't think that the 950 is worth it unless you actively dislike the other options and have been burned by used 1520s or icons. I fit neatly in that group, so here's to hoping that updates fix most of my problems in the near future.

    Just wanted to add Carphone Warehouse are starting to ship phones next week, just got my delivery email...

    Now to make my mind up about the Mozo Case and if the 950 works with the Nokia DT-910?

    I received mine on 11/25/15. I really like this phone. The battery life is good and I haven't run into any problems. The camera is just beyond belief. Any apps I use are there. The display is great. If I'm to complain about anything, it is that, to me, the phone is too big. I much preferred the size of my previous phone, the HTC 8X. That phone was also really nice, until it started having issues - something was failing though I don't know what. If that hadn't occurred, I wouldn't have purchased another phone. I've had iphone (twice) and found it boring and I find the android phones are (to me) a hot mess. Personal preference.
    Again, no problems, as it has been performing flawlessly.

    AND, I forgot to add, I can see the screen when I'm outdoors. That is a big plus.

    I have just taken delivery of a Lumia 950. The instructions make very clear NOT to press the power button until you have inserted a SIM.
    What will happen otherwise??

    I believe it sets up your access points so if no sim card your need to update them manually or reset your phone

    Battery life is good so far... 16 hours of heavy usage drained the battery for the first time.
    Left the phone at 72% and in the morning it was at 68%... i am quite happy after all those negative things about heavy battery drain.

    What can improve the battery:
    When activating the phone, click on Customize and remove all options for sending information to Microsoft.
    Switch to 3G if you don''t need 4G
    set Glance to 15 sec.
    Disable double tap to lock
    WIndows Hello - off
    Hey cortana - off
    Show notification banners (for some apps like Messengers and others) -> Off ( you will only hear sound when you receive a message and the screen won't turn on)
    Auto Display Brightness -> Off

    Positives ++++ Windows tiles/tile folders is more ergonomic and intuitive than Android swipe. Windows Hello removes the enter pin nark. Wifi calling transforms your real bad indoors network provider connection into crystal clear call audio. Excellent battery life. Great design of the back cover to allow virtually any material to be used as a replacement. 148 GB of storage space. Excellent camera and audio video playback. Continium is genius.

    Negatives----- Having a set of number keys at the top of the keyboard on both pages for usernames that need numbers, Skygo not compatible

    Though I'm not crazy about the new fonts, wire frame icons and hamburger menus my biggest peeve is not being able to hide the navigation bar through settings app. If you can swipe up to bring it back you should be able to make it go away. Not all developers put this setting in their apps. Microsoft included. This should be implemented in the system.

    Before anyone suggests it, yes I did send it to Windows Feedback through the app on the 950.

    How does the WiFi calling work?

    WiFi calling works really well on EE, it's a good thing as reception isn't great where I live.

    Yes, but HOW does it work? According to AT&T's WiFi calling page, the options should just appear in phone settings, but I see none of that. I do have HD Voice enabled. So, this means AT&T doesn't support WiFi Calling on the 950? Yet?

    How long has the WiFi calling been working?

    I got a 950 at one of the insider events last Wednesday and WiFi calling worked well for two days, also on EE. I then got a SIM update message asking for a reboot - This has removed the WiFi calling option from the phone completely. Which is quite annoying.

    Maybe it's because mine is SIM free.

    For me it is an option... All settings/mobile and sim/sim settings/wifi calling and also an option which you prefer as a default...

    Yes I think it is contract only...

    In the UK it is network provider specific and used as a carrot for a contract. Basically it deducts from your inclusive minutes like a normal call but most contracts are now unlimited minutes so it is effectively free.

    Thanks. I get that.

    My point was, I had the option available and selected, then received an update two days later which has removed the option completely - It's not greyed out or anything, it's just not there.

    I am on contract with EE, but the phone was purchased elsewhere. Was your phone from EE or was it SIM free?

    I have also received the sim update or death as well, I am trying to find out why now.. I think it is their systems have not been updated to allow wifi calling on this phone with it only being out a few days. I purchased my 950 thru EE. I will keep you posted what they say?

    Update EE advised me to do a hard reset and after reset another sim update installed and wifi calling is back. I am not sure if it it was the hard reset that caused this or they updated the sim their side so I would call them it might save you resetting the phone...

    That sounds right.

    I just ran the Windows Device Recovery Tool to do a full restore... booted up and there was no option, received a SIM update, rebooted, and the option has returned.

    Hopefully it'll stay this time.

    Well I have had another sim update of death... so don't update again!! Nobody seems to know what the story is at EE I will keep pursuing them until I get an answer...

    Update ... EE are looking into it, at the moment they cannot confirm but as we know it works fine as long as you don't update... I can confirm that backing up and restore doesn't effect this setting. So you can restore a previous back up and the sim still resets back to wifi calling.

    It's a bit of a mess at the moment then.

    Mine's still working at the moment, since I did a full restore. Not sure for how long though...
