    The Lumia 950 is a placeholder for the Surface Phone. That's where all of Microsoft's efforts are going in mobile. They needed a "flagship" device for W10M, not mid-range or low-end devices. That was considered crucial to keeping the brand breathing until SP is released and until W10M is truly ready for general consumers. Bringing Windows Mobile back from hibernation is much easier than restarting it from cold/dead.

    So this "placeholder" they're calling the 950 is not a top priority. Actually NOTHING in mobile is a top priority for Microsoft at this point and they have said exactly that on several occasions. Most recently it was at Build 2016. But even within the low priority world of Windows Mobile, the Lumia 950 is not the top priority. Disappointing for a supposedly flagship phone with so many issues. And once the Surface Phone drops, the Lumia 950 will receive even less attention from Microsoft (if that's even possible).
