    which shows a better path for the direction of windows mobile: lumia 950 xl or HP envy 8 note?

    One's a tablet, one's a phone. Entirely different HW requirements....

    So W10M is officially released - do you expect updates to the build faster then what is done for the W10PC version? Will you join the insider program with this? Do the current glitches seem app related or OS related?
    I'll likely do the Insider program, yes. Not sure if updates will be faster than PC. I expect the same schedule.

    I'm curious if you had a chance to try the Microsoft Remote Desktop app with Continuum, and how well that seemed to work.

    Hi Dan, a few questions here. 1: How is wordflow/swipe on the 950? I have the latest build on a 920, 635 and 640 and typing is damn near impossible. Wordflow seems to have devolved to the point it no longer recognises the word "Wordflow".

    2: Does the 950 have anything close to the Lumia Refocus app where you can select "all in focus"? I use this a lot in macro photography.

    Thanks Dan!
    I haven't used Swipe too much, but it seemed okay for me? I'll have to give it another go.

    Hi Dan, in Continuum, can you open a normal looking file explorer window? In which you could easily copy data from one USB flash stick to another? And does the phone memory show up like a C drive? I assume the SD card shows as a D drive too?

    Does continuum support the use of the Messaging App on the bigger screen? I've never heard or seen anybody talk about this before and it would be interesting to use it with a full screen, mouse and keyboard.
    Yes, it works just fine in Continuum

    I moved away from Windows Phone after four years because I got tired of having to purchase my devices(HTC Titan, Samsung Focus, Lumia 920 and 1020) unlocked for my carrier.(T-Mobile) Outside of a Lumia 1020 successor with a Snapdraggon 820 I vowed never to purchase another Lumia phone or any phone for that matter of high end quality if I couldn't purchase it through my carrier. Do you think this is a great strategy and is Microsoft pushing away fans and enthusiasts to other platforms who would otherwise still be riding it out with Microsoft?

    I currently use Glance on my 1020 as my bedside clock, propped up on a Tylt wireless charging dock. You mentioned in the review that Peek is not available, which really blows, but can I at least use Glance for my bedside clock in Red at night and then Green during the day as I currently do?
    So, Peek is by default, actually and there is Night Mode. I think it should be fine for your usage scenario especially when charging.

    When using Continuum connected to a Miracast device (e.g., the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter), what display resolution and refresh rate does it run at? And I guess likewise when connected to the dock
    1080p and 60FPS I believe. That's how it works when docked.

    I know you don't like the Project Astoria very much Daniel, I don't do either. But since it's freezed, how long time do think it will take before developers are going to use for example Project Islandwood? I'm not so much in to it, but do you think it's easy for Companys to port apps? Does it cost much?

    Your review mentions the lack of double-tap to wake, which is disappointing... does the 950 at least have the super sensitive touch (works with gloves on) feature?
    No, as I believe those technologies are connected.

    How is the display compared to Lumia 930? The one from 930 seems to be a bit laggy when scrolling and has also motion blur.
    I like the 930's display better due to the 2.25D design.

    Can we lock (turn off the screen) of the phone while using continuum?
    No, that will break the Continuum connection.

    Hello Dan, is it possible to connect the xbox wireless adapter to connect the xbox controller? or at least a wired xbox controller to the continuum dock? I mean it is absolutely possible but the phone does recognize the controls? in games like halo Spartan strike.

    Hows' the call quality with dual antenna's?
    Seems good. Gets AT&T HD Voice. But I would need more time on the phone to really be sure.

    When is the 950XL coming? Why is it taking longer than the 950? Is there a problem with the production? (Lets be honest here...the XL is the one we all really want :o)
    Not sure what happened but there was a delay. Should be here in the next few days. Fingers crossed.

    there's less then 3" of difference between he screen size. both are LTE connected windows devices. both can make phone calls. both can do messaging.

    if you take the 3" off the hp, it's basically a surface phone.

    You mentioned in the review that there's no payment from wallet. Is this something that may be coming to the 950 in the future, or it's not even happening for W10?
    I just mean a universal payment system like Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, etc. Microsoft says they're working on it, but no ETA.

    Does the 950 / Windows 10 Mobile work smoothly with the original Band v1?

    I have had numerous issues with the Insider Preview builds on my 1520 when paired with my Band 1 - Delayed/missed notifications to the Band, Driving Mode getting stuck ON when paired with the Band, Cortana weirdness...
    Haven't tried, sorry.

    Do you know of any comprehensive list of Universal apps that will work with Continuum?
    I've seen this list Complete List of Universal Windows Apps and Games | finder.com.au but it does not seem very accurate.

    Also any idea why ATT disabled double tap to wake and screen timeout > 5 minutes?
    We'll work on a list of Continuum apps.

    AT&T didn't disable double tap to wake it is just not yet ready. Seems to be a driver thing.

    Is there any indication that at&t will offer the XL? Not interested in upgrading from the 1520 6" to the 950 5.2" and I would like to carry on with my next plan.
    No indication from AT&T about XL. You'll have to buy it unlocked.
