    Use it since launched, but i recently upgrade my phone to 950 because the usb on my 1020 start to give up( it charge at weird angle and no data sync), but i miss the 1020 so much, is the most satisfying phone I've use, shot 2300 pic and 120 video on it.
    What do you think the 950 lacks? I'm curious, because I'm tempted to replace my 1020.

    it's more of at present the 950 isn't polished yet because the software lets it down. Camera software still isn't as great as it should be, word flow isn't as great though it's getting better. Mind you, the hardware is excellent and some added features are a bonus like removable batteries and fast charging.

    Lumia Camera though has issues on W10. Like the focus thing. The windows camera still lacks RAW output and the dual 38 + 5 Megapixel mode

    That's exactly what I thought about the 950's when they came, but isn't it pretty good after all these updates?

    I got lucky and found a brand new sealed Lumia 1020 ATT version about a month ago. I had this model when it came out and used it for about a year and a half. It was my all time favorite phone. Now I have returned, have been using it for a month now. This beast can't be beat!

    950 just lack the heft and feel of the 1020, and I really miss the 34mp resolution on the 1020, the shutter noise, but other than that, 950 really beat the 1020, its fast, the software is smooth now on .318 rarely lag

    I am still using my Lumia 1020 as my one and only phone with Windows 10 Mobile 10586.318. The only thing I am a little upset with is that Skype Video does not recognize the camera. However the Skype application does. The quick battery drain lately is also concerning. Apart from that everything works OK.

    My wife still uses a 1020 daily...but lately the battery has been terrible on it, nothing running in the background, also she said it stalls and freezes up a lot...I am mad that it won't get the official update to 10 when MS said that it will...I used to be a fan of Windows phone, but her next one probably will be an android to get a decent camera.

    I had issues with mine recently, it took at least two seconds until it reacted when I pressed the unlock button. It also started crashing, and it wasn't possible to switch off wifi.

    First I deleted all apps, but that didn't help. Then I went for a hard reset using the hardware buttons, and now the issues are gone. I actually had forgotten how easy it is to restore everything after a reset, just some logins and app settings. The phone is just as good as two years ago again. :)

    I this really/still the case for those now on Win 10? I am considering buying a 1020 to bridge me over to the "next generation" (much delayed/if ever ;) of Win phones. IF I do this, Win 10 has to work well with the camera.

    There's still Lumia Camera app available, "refurbished" on W10 store, and who works well after just the last W10 "insider preview" update.

    WHile trying the last Insider preview, Lumia Camera refused to download from Store. Sorry to disappoint you. But if you come from an earlier version of W10Mobile, with installed Lumia Camewra and just upgrade to the last version (no reset), it might work

    Refurbished? Like "different version"? Has this manual focus problem vanished? Also, in latest Insider Preview the app refused to download.

    Well, this is 1020 forum, so I recommend to have W8.1 installed at first, working fine and stable. After that you can update to W10 through Insider, and DON'T DO HARD RESET. Firmware layer has to be kept.
    As for Lumia Camera app, doing this, update of the app is allowed. This update is a kind of mix with Microsoft camera. In manual focus no infinite, but automatic focus is pretty decent

    What do you mean by "firmware layer has to be kept?" A hard reset does not overwrite the firmware, only settings. Besides, Microsoft has enabled Lumia Camera Classic on the 1020 on W10M to capture the 41mpx shots. The default camera app is not capable (won't be updated) to capture the high-res 41mpx shots

    A hard get doesn't integrate so well with previous firmware.
    Lot of people complaining of Lumia Camera not working correctly.

    So you're proposing not to hard reset because Lumia Camera will not work as expected (I haven't seen any confirmed reports but I'll take your word on it) but you may also know that a hard reset is more or less necessary between 8.1 >> 10 upgrade for the OS to function correctly. In that case the end user has to choose to either upgrade + hard reset (better stability in the long run) or upgrade and not hard reset (retain Lumia Camera settings but OS/device is unstable) or stick to 8.1?

    Good description. Without Hard Reset O.S is probably not optimized, but you have the satisfaction that all old apps keep working. And update including firmware like Denim would be necessary.
    Not optimized, but stable anyway. That's my case. Main Windows functions like Bluetooth work pretty well. It's good anyway to cancel some Windows features. 100 % Windows features or 100 % external apps working. That's the choice.

    Still on the 1020 full time on WP8.1 and quite happy with what it provides. Not really tempted by the 950. I wish we had Edge though.

    I bought my 1020 on the first day it became available at MS store. It's still my only phone right now. Started debating whether I shall go with a 950 or 950xl after bought a pair of 950/950xl during the BOGO promotion. What will be your opinion whether I shall keep using 1020 or switch to 950/950xl?

    My major issue with 1020 is the battery life. But seems .338 makes it better - I have about 14 hrs per charge, based on Battery app.

    The only "must have" feature 950/950xl gives me is dual sim capability. I do use a separate phone when travel overseas. A dual sim phone will be convenient.

    I still don't understand your point of "hard resetting clears firmware settings" and "not to hard reset on WM10". I haven't read any wide-spread reports to avoid hard-resetting after the upgrade. On the contrary, we here have been recommending a "hard reset" after the WP 8.1.x to WM 10 upgrade.

    If you already have a 950 XL lying around then its really a no-brainer. The camera experience (and everything else included) is better than the 1020.

    Camera experience is better, but pictures seen on a big screen have nothing to do, plus the ability to zoom.
    Hard Reset is good for O.S. but, as W10 is not optimized for 1020, if you don't do it, Lumia Camera, Skype, Opera Mini, Vevo, Here apps, etc... work without bugs. (Who else can say that). I'm attached to my classy high level 1020 working in that way.
