    Thanks for responding to my questions, here's a follow up.
    Original questions:
    1) Apart from double-tap to wake, are there any other settings missing? Or added that haven't been discussed yet
    2) How'd you recommend using it in the car? Any holders you prefer (perhaps with wireless charging)?
    3) Do you think we'll see multitasking support with the 950 any time soon (within a year perhaps)?
    4) I see the on screen buttons being hidden often, can you keep hem shown?
    5) Has there been any improvement in Wireless charging? Faster or allowing more space in between (for cases and stuff)?

    Your answers:
    Super sensitive touch.
    So you can't use it with gloves?
    CR-200 seems to be fine for the car.
    Yeah but i don't like to push it at the windscreen. But size and weight are fine in it? Nice
    Multitasking support?
    Yeah, showing multiple apps at the same time as you would do on a desktop. At least showing 2 apps at the same time would be nice. And what about background audio?
    You can swipe them away or swipe them up to show again.
    But no setting?
    Qi is Qi, nothing new there.
    Ok, but it could still be improved or whatever.

    But thanks for the answers :)

    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.
    Just tried directly to the Type-C using an adapter and nothing with Spartan Strike. I'll have to try with Continuum, but I don't have high hopes.

    So when you get the 950, either from the ATT or directly from MS, you'll get build 10586, which is part of the Insider program. Now do you get the Windows Insider app pre-installd too? If you do, or do not, are you becoming part of the Insider program as all the rest of us or there's some 'special treatment' until the RTM comes out?

    Thanks for answering so many questions and thanks for the review you posted. One question: Does the retail package come with earphones/mic?
    Doubtful. They usually don't these days.

    In display settings, what is % for text, apps and items? Can it be set lower and how does that look?
    400% and yes, you can adjust it.

    Well, text will get smaller, but hey, some like that on the 1520, so it's your choice.

    Dan,

    I just finished watching your review video for the Lumia 950. Thank you for that wonderful overview.

    However, I did see that your cat looks dubious


    ...Is he holding out for the Intel chipped phones rumored to be in the pipe? If so, do you think he's a smart cat or has he gotten into the catnip again?
    He's a she ;)

    I'll have more on the Intel phone situation next week.

    Hey Dan, I'm coming from a Lumia 1520. It has been my first and only phablet class device. I am wanting the 950xl but I'm on ATT and do not have deep enough pockets to buy it unlocked. Since you are also coming from the 1520, is the size difference to the 950 significant enough to matter, in your opinion? Have you started to miss the bigger screen?

    Will you (or Windows Central) do a camera comparison between the 1520, 930, 1020, and 950?
    Very likely.

    Hello Daniel! Does Lumia 950 support more slow-mo options than 930/1520? (e.g. 1080p/120fps like iPhone6s)
    No, but 120FPS should come in an update no later than Spring, but possibly earlier for 950/XL.

    Does Continuum work with the Microsoft wireless display adapter?
    Have not tried. If it's Miracast, it should work.

    -Does the USB-C port support USB 3.1 speeds?
    -How is headphone audio?
    -Is the "Smart" mode that was in the Lumia Camera app on older devices still here?
    -Some newer devices like the latest Nexus devices have been touted for having great low-light performance. How does the 950 compare directly to the latest Nexus cameras in low light?
    -I've only ever had devices with LCDs so I don't know if this happens on AMOLED devices, but does the screen become black at certain angles while wearing polarized lenses?

    10586 is the shipping versions; Insider will surpass it soon.

    Windows Insider is not preinstalled, that'd be...weird.

    There is not RTM. 10586 is just the shipping version to current phones. Now that my review is over I'll likely put this phone on Insider status.

    No gloves, not yet. May come in an update. My guess is they need the drivers for a QHD display to be finished.

    Multip apps at once, no idea if that is their plan. Maybe.

    Background audio I believe is app dependent. I think Edge can do it.

    Qi has a new version out, but not sure if it's commercial yet. They're like BT with standards.

    Can't say I have.
    Try it sometime if you don't mind. Perhaps it's just my 950, but my friends' heads were huge when they were standing at the edge of the picture.

    Have you had any reboot issues with your 950? Adding pictures to a text message while in the texting app caused a reboot on my device twice today. Thanks!
    I have not had reboot issues.

    Just sent an image in messaging, works fine. Make sure your apps are up to date?

    Yes, to 3.1.

    Haven't had too much experience with headphones yet.

    No smart mode, IIRC.

    950 is better than most phones for low light, easily. I'd say it has to be the top 3. We'll be doing more comparisons in the coming days.

    Polarizing is not nearly as bad as it is with LCD last I checked.

    The OS does not do this but app devs can make this happen in their apps.

    Gosh, when i started typing my queston it was like, page 14-15, three pages in few minutes, damn.

    So, a lot of us got the update to Lumia camera, which basicly retires it and proceed us to the Windows camera. For me, that was on build 10166 or whatever the last slow ring was, now i've upgraded to 10586 and weird thing happend, i got my Lumia camera 5.x back. So is this related to the build number or was it some kind of glitch, and does the 950 comes with the Lumia camera pre-installed?

    It's a big difference, yes. I do miss it, until I want to put the phone in my front pocket.

    Still, it's not a huge, huge thing. Everyone is different, however.

    Thanks for answer! One more question. Can you capture video using Rich Recording (all 4 mics) on your Lumia 950? It seems that all phones capture mono sound on W10M Preview, and there is no option to turn this on within MS Camera settings.

    If it's there on 950, do you think that 1520/930 users will get that via firmware/drivers/camera app update anytime soon?

    Do you have any of the Mozo(?) covers to try? Does that mitigate some of your criticism regarding appearance? EDIT: damn, asked a few seconds too late!

    Oh, and did you get a chance to check the audio properties on a video file to see if it records in stereo?
    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 ;)
