    1. Are all WP8 apps compatible with W10M?
    2. How is performance. My 920 is quite slow these days (multiple seconds to launch apps)
    3. How is the groove music app performance? On the 920, the music app is still a cluster f***

    How does camera perform at high ISO levels? I heard it goes to 12 800, but it don't think it makes any sense to go that high if you want your pictures to look good. What is in your opinion the last usable ISO level?
    I have not tried high ISO, really. I also have not felt a need to shoot manually much either. Holding still in low light produces amazing images with low noise. We'll do more in-depth over the coming weeks.

    Hi Dan,
    Do you think that Microsoft will release an android device along with Lumia just like blackberry done with Priv??
    No, I do not.

    Microsoft says that they will be delivering windows as a service. Does that mean once OEM/Carrier deliver Windows 10 mobile update, from that point onwards Microsoft deliver windows 10 mobile future updates independent of the carrier's??
    I think carriers like AT&T will have a heads up on updates and do some quick testing, but I do not think they will interfere as much. I think this is why the 950 is not on other carriers as they could not guarantee such a thing. We'll have to wait and see what actually happens.

    hi dan
    1.950 or 950XL for a new windows phone user (both phones will be without a contract)
    2.are u using a case or not ? if yes which one?
    I need time with the XL, but it's button layout is kind of odd. That will be a preference thing with some being okay with and some hating it. Other than that I consider them to be the same phone. Sure XL is faster (1.8 vs 2.0 Ghz) and has more two more cores, but how that translates into real world experience is not known. I think it may make a slight difference with Continuum. So if you are going to use Continuum a lot the XL may be a better choice.

    Regarding case, no I don't use them on Lumias and don't feel the need here.

    Do you know if AT&T kept the data toggle option in the action center for W10M 950?
    I do have a Cellular Data toggle in the Action Center.

    Like 98% are compatible. Domino's Pizza crashes and our own Windows Central app (which is being replaced soon) has issues too. But these are really exceptions.


    I mean, it's all fast. You're not going to get a faster Windows Phone for awhile. I have no real issues with performance for anything yet.

    Can you try to find out if we'll ever be able to access our on-premise SharePoint servers, like in 8.1 Office Hub? So far, it's not working in any of the preview builds.

    Thanks for replying. Are you having any other issues related to apps not loading or hanging up? Even after sitting all night all the apps I mentioned are still hanging up. Even after doing a couple of soft resets.

    Eh, it should work, but I cannot guarantee it. I have not heard of issues before in doing that.

    I'm a android guy, tablets, phones etc..etc..(never had apple in my life) but the Lumia 950 is interesting because of Camera, Image stabilization, SD card, and removable battery.

    1. Can you turn off IRIS scan permanently? I have negative interest in that feature as in I don't care that a corporation "says" they don't send that info anywhere.

    2. Are the apps found on the Microsoft store on windows 10 desktop indicative of what will be available on the phone? (but simply a smaller version?)

    3. Why doesn't Microsoft do promotions to get android guys to switch? trade in programs + store creds(to buy apps) + 1tb of one drive storage(lol with no fine print because that last one drive move was a d*ck move by them...) :P

    4. How is the windows mobile maps app compared to google's?

    5. Does windows mobile have translate app? how's that compare to google?

    6. Why doesn't Microsoft pay developers to develop? not like for crap apps, but sort of like how the unreal engine guys do it, every if you have a good prototype, they give you $ / mentor to help you get it to market...

    7. With all the coders at Microsoft they should be setting up small internal teams to develop apps...

    P.S : the app gap is real and it definitely is keeping me on the fence about buying a 950...the 950 is way better than the nexus 5x on paper.

    Battery life has become extremely important to me in the last year or so and It may be to early to tell right now but how is the battery life on the 950? I am trying to decide between the 950 (3000 mah) and the s6 active (3500 mah) The s6 would be my first android phone.

    Hey Daniel, 2 questions...

    First, what percentage of issues with the 950 do you attribute to updateable software/firmware in comparison to hardware issues?

    Second, what advice would you give to a Verizon user in an ATT deadzone that wants to stay on W10 Mobile? Wait to see if MS can get the 950/XL on VZW? Hold out for a possible Surface phone? Stick w/ the Icon and eventually be forced to switch os's?

    Thanks!

    1. It's off by default and yeah, you absolutely do not have to use it and can just use PIN or nothing too

    2. It's mixed as this time with probably
    3. They have a new app on Android that tells you which apps of yours are available on W10M

    4. That's a general question for other forum members and likely too open ended for this thread, sorry

    5. Yes and I have not directly compared, sorry

    6. They have and they did. Issue is this: (1) some companies still turned them down (2) Once you pay a company to make an app, you eventually give them the finished product and they have to maintain it. That means the company now has to hire a developer or two. Instead, they often threaten MS they will pull the app unless MS continues to pay them and pay for the app. Think of it, if MS pays for the app and its maintenance, what incentive is there for the company to ever take it as their own when they can just blackmail MS to keep paying? It doesn't work.

    7. Sorry, but these are not really related to the 950 per se ;)

    I think battery life is fantastic. I've been on it and using it most of the morning (since 9am, Twitter, Slack, app updates, email, sms) and I'm at 76%.

    Best thing is if I throw it on the Type-C charger, I'll bump up to 100% in 15 mins.
