    Another poster here ("poopyfinger") has found that the 950 was shipped with at least 2 different firmware builds. It appears that the phones with the later build are significantly more stable - like mine that I have no issues with.

    Can a firmware update fix the issues that people are having with the 950 series?

    What firmware are you on and are you having problems?

    My AT&T 950 came with 15454.29000 and some of the ones with issues came with 15452.

    My AT&T Lumia 950 has firmware 15454.29031

    It is pretty stable in terms of app crashes, freezes and/or reboots. It's been 3 days and I haven't gotten any of those.

    However, I do have other bugs such as the mild battery drain on standby (2-3% per hours) and heavy drain and heat when using Tubecast for example. Also, I have the brightness bug where automatic doesn't go all the way down to 0% at night. Also, when I set it to manual the phone freezes for several seconds when switching among the different brightness settings using the Quick Actions.

    Seems weird to me that there are so many firmware variants. Is this normal?

    Maybe this is why only Europe is getting a firmware update?

    Bought my 950 from AT&T on day one. It has firmware 15454.29031. No real issues. Had a problem with some resets, but when I turned off the iris scanner those went away. No problems at all now.

    So weird that my AT&T 950, also day one, has a slightly different firmware. I've never fl followed firmwares so I don't know how normal/abnormal this is.

    I doubt I'll get a response, but I'll tweet Gabe Aul about it. Maybe we'll get an explanation.

    AT&T 950, 15454.29031 ... Same issues as listed above with brightness. Other issues of course, but these might be OS- or app-based. Word flow is terrible. Music playback controls take a few seconds to trigger. Bluetooth issues. I could go on. I hope AT&T doesn't hold up this firmware very long.

    Well, no response from Gabe Aul but I don't think he's the one I should have tweeted anyway. Maybe someone will figure out what's up with all these different firmware builds.
