    I have more faith in the 950XL as that is the one that most employees were using. So firmware/optimization is likely better on it as they likely found quirky bugs while using them.

    i highly doubt that. considering the difference of about a week, i would say the 950 and 950XL have the exact same build of Windows 10, errors and bugs and all.

    I've mentioned elsewhere on this site, that the current insider build is ok for insiders that are expecting issues, and even then it can be frustrating at times, but to release this build to the general public was not a good idea.

    I too have notification issues, I very rarely get notifications on my lockscreen (though i do sometimes from some apps), though the live tiles seem to work ok. I also had issues where I had to explicitly add several apps including Microsofts own Outlook Mail app to the "allowed background tasks" list, surely this app in particular should automatically be allowed to run in the background without any user configuration. Also, if you configure it to collect every 15 mins, if you don't also find the setting to allow it to run as a background task, it still won't collect. This is too much for any new user to the platform to have to deal with.

    Forgot to mention, this is on my L930. The last build had a few less issues for me.

    But he has the exact same issues as many insiders on the same OS build with other Lumia's, so there's not really much of a reason to doubt him.

    Well went in to att store last night .... 950 is super light ! It does feel a bit plasticky but it is the lightest phone I've ever held but the screen is only ok I think my 1520 is a bit crispier. Good over all but not of the chain like my 6s plus but also not as pricy . But for ms flagship? Not sure...

    I am not doubting that there are not problems; however, I think that you raise a valid point. The OP has only one post, and has yet to respond to the thread that s/he created. This could possibly indicate a red flag.

    I could go through and pick out problems as well and say I'm having them. My point is when you have a single post and it's doing nothing but flaming a device, and you're not ACTIVE in the thread you started... the odds are heavily against you in having a legitimate problem. That's why I called shenanigans.

    Maybe he's not ACTIVE because some people like to make fun of others who are new?

    Careful...with only 290 posts and barely double digit likes given (11) you're not much of a contributor either.

    but it does seem iffy...

    If you bought a new device and it wasn't working the way you expected, most people would either return it or reach out. the OP did reach out, but then nothing. Maybe he did make up the whole this, or maybe he returned it. hell, he could have been abducted by aliens.

    Post count "should" mean nothing, but if you start a topic as your very 1st post, complaining about a device you just bought, and disappear off the face of the earth, it does seem suspicious.

    Now, I am not saying the op made it all up to troll the forums, but I can say some people are having issues, others are not. Luckily, I am not :)

    You know you're totally right. If you really don't like it bring it back. In a month or two I bet most of those problems are fixed (Doubt so), we're talking about Microsoft here. But they changed their strategic plan. But I can imagine how mad you are right now.
    Microsoft is actually VERY quick and fixing things.... Apple on the otherhand is super slow. and when they do fix it, its still broken, or broke something else..

    Windows 8.1 released.. big bug was fixed in 2 months. iOS big bugs fixed in 7-8 months...

    Ok, your reasoning is sound. We'll see if he/she ever returns.

    I'll likely still get a 950 at some point myself anyway :)

    First off, at no point did I make fun of the OP. All I did was simply state the opinion of something doesn't add up. And looking at the OP's profile, there's a lot that supports what I'm getting at. He joined on 11/23/2015, made his 1st post on 11/23/15 @ 7:44 AM, and hasn't been back to the site since 8:17 AM of that morning.

    And what does MY post count and "likes" I've given out have to do with it? I don't visit the forums often, but if I find something I can use, or find something I like, I give respect where it's due.

    And, I'd like to believe I've contributed plenty. I was also mentioned in this blog post about Lumia 920 cases by Nokia. I was a month ahead of the article written.

    There is no way a 6" 1080x1920 display is as crisp as a 5.2" 1440x2560. The ppi (pixels per inch) is what determines how 'crisp' a display looks and with only 367, the 1520 significantly lags behind the 950's 564.

    Also, the iPhone 6s plus has a 5.5" 1080 display. Again, nowhere near as crisp as the 950.

    I wouldn't waste my time if I legitimately wasn't let down. I don't frequent this forum as much as some of you and I don't feel inclined to. I'm only sharing my experience as I was a huge windows phone supporter. I love the phone itself but the software is just terrible.

    The text notifications fixed itself.

    The email has yet to sync.

    Ive taken pictures and it takes a while for the system to process it so I can't really snap a pic and show it to someone. Also I try to delete it and it wont let me. I have to try multiple times, close out of photos, reopen and try again. Then it says it got deleted but I go to upload a pic to instagram and there is the picture that is nowhere to be found on my phone or on OneDrive, I want it deleted.

    Also can't save a picture from email in browser.

    Also edge is crap. Sometimes the back button works, other times it takes me to the start menu. Have to click ljnks multiple times sometimes.

    Also when I'm typing in edge and I go back up to add something and I click return, it creates a line but then the cursor moves to the bottom.

    Also when connected to Bluetooth audio, everytime I get a text now, it interrupts the music and asks me whether to read it or ignore. Neat feature but it can be really annoying as theres no option to shut it off.





    I have 14 days since the 20th, if these issues are not resolved...i never thought id say this...but I'm going to iPhone. I liked windows phone before because I could pick it up and I knew it was going to do what I wanted it to do. With this windows 10 its a huge hit or miss and highly frustrating.


    Now an having another issue... Sooner, I was connected to my Bluetooth speaker and when click the volume rocker, the drop down menu said I was connected, ok everythjng worked fine. Now that I am disconnected, and with Bluetooth off, I click the volume rocker and the same dropdown menu appears as if I were still using Bluetooth.

    Perhaps a reset will fix it but this is unacceptable, I dont expect a phone that requires constant resets to work to cost $600.



    As fir hardware, I have some issues with screen sensitivity at times. And the battery drains by 2pm when unplugged 7am.

    PPI is only part of the story. Go look at a new iPhone 6S. The displays are gorgeous. Evenly lit, razor sharp, excellent balance of color and clarity. These phones did not "need" to be 1440 x 2560 to look great.

    At a reasonable viewing distance, all the displays are at or beyond the limit of visual acuity, and as such have little or no discernible difference in "crispness". Yes, the 950 display is beautiful. But so are many others.

    Yes, there is. Cortana/Notebook/Settings... [Read texts aloud]

    At a reasonable viewing distance, all the displays are at or beyond the limit of visual acuity, and as such have little or no discernible difference in "crispness".
    I find this to be patently false, much like the claims that the human eye cannot see the difference between 30fps and 60fps, or that humans cannot tell the difference between 1080p and 720p on anything less than a 32" monitor. There's a reason why 300dpi is the baseline for print, and some people even publish at 600dpi. It because we can tell the difference, even if we can't jump up and down and point to each individual pixel.

    But I can't prove it, just 'feel' it.

    I will grant you there's a lot more to how nice a screen looks than the ppi, though... however, the L950' screen is startlingly good. Not as good IMO as the S6 Edge, but still jaw-droppingly good.

    Your opinion. I own a 1520 and iPhone and literally live next door to att. So for me display does not pop out at me like my 1520 or 6s plus it's ok though.

    Stats are not opinions, they are facts. The fact is the 950 has a lot higher pixel density. There is no denying or arguing that. You can not like it all you want, but the 950 has a much crisper display. Period.
