    I won a 950 through some online sweepstakes.
    Received it yesterday.
    In a whole I am plugged into the Microsoft Infrastructure, but have been using Android Phones for ages.
    I have a Surface Pro 3, use OneDrive and MS Office.
    As an existing ATT customer all I needed was a Nano Sim and I was underway.

    First impressions :
    Really nice looking phone, awesome screen, I dont see any issue with the build quality as others noted.
    Once all the updates where installed I was off the the races.
    There are a few core things I use my phone for :

    Music Player
    That to me is the first and foremost requirement, I use MediaMonkey on my desktop and sync my music to a micro SD. I was not impressed with Groove, installed a few others VLC, MixRadio etc.
    All I want is an app that discovers my Music on the SD card and discovers my M3U playlists on the SD card. So far none have worked properly. Any suggestions?
    I would also like to ensure my played tracks are scrobbled to Last.Fm, which works seamlessly on Android, are there solutions?

    Browsing / Ease of Use
    May of the operations are clunky, mainly centered around edge, when entering user credentials I need to disable the keyboard at times to get to the next field. There is no easy tab option. Edge in general seems to crash on occasion and is slow / unresponsive even here on the Windows Central site.

    Messaging
    Great. Love the Skype integration into the messaging app. Both WhatsApp and Threema are available and working nicely

    Apps
    I dont use many, but there are a few that I really would love to see, general smaller local operations so not holding my breath.
    FlyCleaners Dry Cleaning and Laundy Pickup and Delivery (doesnt have a website alternative so really hamstrung there)
    DOTT Dog Tag Bluetooth Virtual Leash for pets.
    Seamless I have no problem using the website, but an app would be nice

    If I cant resolve the Music problem, I may switch back, the rest is minor to me.

    Any pointers?

    ModernMusic works great for locally stored music and will scrobble to Last.FM

    That's all I have off your list. Others will chime in soon, I'm sure.

    It's in the settings. You have to check a box to enable it. I don't scrobble to Last.FM, but I enjoyed the heck out of locally stored scrobble with JukeFox on Android so I understand the want.

    Did that, i set everything in settings, and it seemed to log in, but when I play mic it doesn't propagate to the Last.fm site.
    Will have to play around with it some more, maybe contact the author.

    The Windows Central site is honestly one of the worst out there for bogging down, especially the desktop version. I have to mod my HOSTS file to even use the site on my Surface 3, or any desktop Windows device really.

    Modern Music was a dead end, couldnt get it to work. But i found Music Locker which works perfectly with last.fm and also lets me import m3u playlists.
