    I know windows phones lets you pin website to the start screen - they used to display an image of the site in Windows 8.1 - but in Windows 10 - they are simple blue squares... is there a way to get them to be more informative?
    I think this is up to the website, as some websites that you pin will have the sites logo on the tile, while others are the generic Edge logo.

    What is the maximum shutter speed on the camera? (As long as the 4 second shutter on the 1020?)

    Yes. If it's Qi, it'll work across the board on 950 and 950 XL. Still, USB Type C Quick Charge is much faster.
    Is the "fast charge" as started on the ms specs actually the Qualcomm quick charge 2.0?

    Hi Dan,

    Somewhat off topic, but does the XBOX One work as a miracast device to use with the 950? If not, is there any chance that will be implemented in an XB1 refresh (when is that happening btw ... I feel like the original XB1 is getting a little long in the tooth).

    Thanks!
    Miracast support has been there since April for preview members. Also, it's a bit laggy.

    Hi Daniel

    Very interested in getting more info about the camera. Could you upload a couple of RAW files (.dng) of typical scenes (outdoor, high dynamic, etc.) so that we mobile photographers are able to assess the quality of the camera? Algorithms, etc. are fine, but I work exclusively with .dng on my 1020 and I'm excited to play with raw files coming from a 950.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Ashram ...
    A question for Dan then: Do you know when this will be officially released (i.e. not just preview) ... Also still curious about the XBOX refresh :) I have an aging second gen PS3, and I have been thinking of upgrading that to an XBOX One (which would make the purchase of a 950 much more likely ... I really would like the ability to do miracast on my TV).

    Hi Daniel. I have been grumbling about some issues on the forums here for the last few days, but I'm not ready to give up. I do have a few questions I'd like your insight on though.



    1. Visual Voicemail - others have it, other do not (I am one). I can trigger it and it prompts for a password/pin, but it never displays my voicemails and becomes a nag screen. I have reset the phone once already and that didn't help, do you think it is a SIM problem (new one with Lumia 950) or a phone problem (replace it)?
    2. A ton of text messages were backed up and auto-magically downloaded when I set up my Lumia 950, except for 11/30/2013 - 11/18/2015, those were all missing and still reside on my Lumia 920. Any ideas or tips? I guess I can live without them, but that sucks.

    Hi Dan,

    I listened to your opinions about the materials (plastic vs. metal/glass) in your review. While a lot of people have busted on the construction as uninspired, it seems there are a lot of practical reasons for the plastic, two of which you mentioned (durability and weight). The two others that I have thought of are:
    • Removable back plate, meaning you can have a replaceable battery. How would you do this metal/glass?
    • Wireless charging: wasn't it only recently that someone figured out how to do this with metal?


    What are your thoughts on this?

    Resetting the phone and not restoring from a backup fixed the vvm issues for me.

    Do you know if the unlocked 950 and/or 950 XL will do HD Voice on AT&T, or is that unique to the AT&T-branded 950?

    Besides the faster camera, is there a perceptible performance difference in the OS and apps between the 950 and 1520 with both running W10M 10586?

    what advice would you give to a Verizon user in an ATT deadzone that wants to stay on W10 Mobile?
    If it's only your home that won't get AT&T reception, you can buy an AT&T MicroCell from them, their femtocell, which connects to your home internet and acts as a personal cell tower for you. I don't get an AT&T signal in my neighborhood, but have been using a MicroCell for years to have five bars throughout my house.

    It costs $300, but they gave it to me gratis, without my asking even, as thanks for being a 10+ year customer; if you tell them you're a VZW customer considering a switch, maybe they'll comp you one to get you to change over.

    Obvious that the 950XL is utilizing liquid cooling but I'm seeing mixed information on the 950, does it or does it not utilize liquid cooling for the Snapdragon 808? Thanks Dan

    Hey Dan by chance do you know Microsoft has any payment options for there unlocked phones. I checked out the 950 at ATT and I really like and definitely an upgrade from my L928, trying my luck with some wishful thinking.

    Have you tried setting the "download messages from" option in the messaging app settings?

    Cases for me ship on Wed, so probably at least 10 days out for my follow up on that and yes, I expect it to make a difference.

    Haven't tried audio yet, sorry. Super busy here ;)
    are the cases stocked in US or is there a hefty shipping fee on top the cost? -- what does a Mozo case set you back delivered to your home?

    Thanks, Daniel for the AMA weekend stint.

    Two (unrelated) questions:

    1. Do live tiles for people groups update with notifications for members from the group on the L950? I've loaded the last three fast ring updates on my L920 daily driver, and while I get the rotating pictures on the people group tiles, I don't get the live tile updates when I receive communication from group members. Is this feature deprecated in W10M? I manage staff, client projects, and participate on two professional boards, across four email accounts. I depend on multiple people group live tile w/updates to keep up; the prospect of having to plow through notification center, no matter how improved in W10M, is a real motivator to stay with 8.1.

    2. Does the continuum hardware have the capability to accept an input network connection? My organization is transitioning to a hosted virtual desktop model in early 2016. With a dedicated network connection (compared to WiFi) and a Windows universal app to run the HVD, it would present a scenario where a 950 or 950XL could approach an all-in-one device. Thoughts?

    This was an honest question. At the Microsoft store, while looking at the 950, I could not find controls similar to what's in WP8.1. I'm beginning to suspect there are none, but I'm hoping I'm wrong. I believe email encryption will be an important feature for most would-be enterprise users. There's a lot of great information in this thread, but nothing about S/MIME or email encryption. Does no one care about it...?

    Hey Dan, ended up picking up the 950 from At&t since my question earlier today and...

    The ring in the back is not as bad looking as I thought at all. 950XL design remains better IMO, but the 950 is cool too and better than expected

    Since this thread is about the 950, and I just picked up one and used it for a little, let me give you a tip, specially if you're moving from a 1520 or a similarly big phone:

    Go to Settings > Display, and change the "size of text, apps..." to 350%... then go to Personalization > Start and put "Show More Tiles"... This will get it to the same number of tiles as the 1520

    I was so pissed at first when I noticed I lost two columns of tiles, even when I put "Show More Tiles" when it was 400%. But this fixed it!! I hope it helps!

    MUST READ!

    Thanks Dan, I got a 950 and you answered many questions I had.

    I still haven't seen anything about what happened to Cortana's music search ability, where'd it go? It's a great feature, I love that it kept a history of searches.

    hold down the search key or say "Hey Cortana" and you will see the music icon in the top right corner,
