    I'm currently sporting a Lumia 735 as my daily driver and I have a Lumia 1520 for taking pictures for when I travel.

    Though I'm looking forward to the new Alcatel Idol 4S in terms of specs.
    I might still end up with a Lumia 950 XL primarily for its camera.

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    I've had a 950 for the past week and the camera has been VERY disappointing. Many (not all) shots have had bad resolution especially in low light.

    And then last nite I was out at a bar listening to some music. Sent a video back to my wife and it was TERRIBLE. It looked good on my phone but was unwatchable on hers. The I came home and played with sending her other videos, same thing plus some of them wouldn't send at all. Every pic I post to Instagram, etc. Is no where near as good as my Lumia 1520 that I owned or my current Note 5. Am I doing something wrong here?

    Between this bad camera showing, a bad Uber app (if the Uber app was better maybe I could tough it) , no Lyft app, and no DART transit app (I live in Dallas) and I'm gonna have to go back to my Note 5.

    Lots to like on the phone and OS but these things are deal breakers.
    Sorry, I thought it was the 950XL, which has a much better camera.

    I believe you should go for it. It is a lovely phone. And after the event updates, the phone runs smoothly. I am glad i bought it. (very recently.)

    I'm actually looking to buy one right now. Here in Croatia one of the providers give Lumias for really good prices and lots of people bought them. I guess they are not satisfyed with them because there is lots of new or "as new" Lumias 950 (XL) on the market for a pretty good price. New 950 for about 200 and XL for about 300. I found XL too big for me, so I'll go for 950 to replace my Z3 compact. Used Android for last half year and really missing W10m.
    I actually discovered that all apps I'm using on Android I had on W10m. Can't wait to get back on that ship!

    Same for me: looking for a good price for 950 XL here, in Ukraine to replace my BlackBerry Z10 (it's $400 in Ukraine still... s****y dead country).

    I just bought one in sale - about $CAD 350 with the display dock.. I'd the 950 at launch last year and ended up returning it after a month due to OS issues. Now I find the software to be a lot better and it's almost usable. I really like the W10M interface and would love to keep this as my main device.

    Not big on apps, so dont miss them too much. Hopefully the OS gets better over time

    Hard reset the phone, changed the camera settings and now It's all good. Almost 4 weeks in with my L950 and I got to tell you... It's becoming one of my favorite devices after the 1520

    The rich black screen of the OS really come out. And it's size is perfect. Not too big not too small. I could say more... But all in all I'm really pleased with the device.

    Hi,
    Five days ago I got mine L950. Coming from an iPhone 6S.
    It was cheap, to be honest this was the main reason. Around 300 euro new (Netherlands).
    And very curious about continuum. Currently using my laptop with hdmi on tv for browsing and some office programs.
    As soon the continuum docks are less expensive I buy one to to experience it myself. Using currently an bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Hopefully that works.

    The first 5 days are an great experience and no reason to grab my iPhone 6S. No real heavy app user here.

    Lumia 950 still worth it. Still has all the features a Microsoft fanboy (like me) wants. Accept the hotness, a great phone.

    Just bought a refurbished for $240 "Top condition", and couldn't be happier. So much better than the 920 it is replacing. I don't really use a lot of apps, and the ones I do are supported by WP10. So I'm a happy camper :)

    Just got a Lumia 950, what are some of the must have apps? Had the 1020 and 640 a few years back then switched to Android and iOS.

    Microsoft would have already given you most of the "must have" apps, the rest is up to you according to your type or intended usage. What were you using on Android and iOS, look to see if they are available on the Windows Store?

    Well the stuff I use on there is not on the Windows phone like Snapchat, Snow, wifi webcam and bank app. Just wondering what are some of the fun apps to use on the phone. I want to play around with the windows phone for a few weeks. BTW I just got a USB-C OTG adapter, just found out Lumia 950 doesn't play with my Mac anymore, I remember I was able to use a Windows app before to transfer photos. Do I need an app or would it be a quick transfer with File Explorer?

    OK that makes more sense. I’m not that much of a “fun” type of guy (LOL) but if you like keeping up with the latest technologies in regards to Microsoft/Windows and enjoy reading the forums here, get the Windows Central app. If camera and taking photos is high on your list give ProShot (for W10M) a go, nice app that gives you more options over the stock camera. There are several decent photo editing apps with my favs being, Adobe Photoshop Express, Fantasia Painter and Fhotoroom.

    Yeah Windows Phone utility appears to be no longer supported on the Mac if you're running W10M, there are some workarounds if you search the web but can’t vouch how well they work though. Maybe someone else can chime in since I’ve rarely had the need to connect such to my Mac and usually rely on a PC.

    I also remember using a Refocus App on the 1020 where I can select the subject to focus on. I kinda miss the fake blur thing from my iPhone 7, it's not a bid deal. Just the camera is really nice and if had the effect would be a plus.

    And I'm back! Sold Z3 compact and bought myself L950! For only 200€ here in Croatia! I couldn't be more happier! I really missed live tiles and I saw that all the apps I used on Android, I have on Windows mobile. I'm not a gamer... And I have to say that iris scanner works perfectly, I love it!

    Even coming from a Lumia 1020 the answer is a resounding Yes. The camera on the 950 is not as good as the 1020 in many ways, but it is much faster to load, shoot and save than the 1020.

    With the cheaper prices, I picked up a L950 and a dock. Win10 is definitely smoother now, and the continuum feature is pretty slick. I like to work in all technologies because of my job, so I have an iPhone/iPad for work, and I switch between a L950 and an Axon7 for Windows/Android.

    I really like the L950 and outside of some iOS based apps I use, the app gap hasn't been as hard on me (my bank has an UWP App, but I rarely use it). I like being able to use continuum to run Office and connect to the many websites I use. Also, I can connect to office servers using the Remote Desktop Preview app, which works great.

    We will see where Microsoft takes things, would like to see a Surface phone to go along with my Surface Pro 4, but time will tell if it really happens.
