This is my first windows phone and my break from apple. The phone is excellent. Transfer of contacts was not entirely successful, and I'm not sure why some came over and some did not. No photos transferred. I will be traveling to Thailand regularly, and the dual SIM will all easy access to service from AIS there and ATT here. Really appreciate the microSD slot

Another great Lumia phone

I bought the Lumia 950 for an upgrade my Lumia 521 so I could get rid of my home phone. So far so good with it. I did the phone update on it once I got things up and running and that took care of it getting hot. Im not one to live on my phone so Im not real concerned about all the apps but there are plenty of apps already loaded and a lot still available from the store. And I freed up some space by uninstalling the apps I didnt want or know I wouldnt use. Dual sim is great for traveling. I also love that it syncs with all my computers so Ill never lose my contacts. Things are set up like on a home computer with Windows 10 so I was able to maneuver my way through things and find things a little easier. 32GB of memory on the phone and can be expanded with a micro SD card up to 200GB so you can save all your music, photos , etc. Now Im not a phone photographer but it has a Zeiss lens for good quality photos at 5344 x 3008 dpi at a 16:9 aspect ratio which then is only 16 megapixels. 4:3 aspect ratio easily changed in the camera settings to be able to get 19-20 megapixels. You can let the camera automatically set your settings or change them manually. I dont know if the battery would last 11 days on standby since I use the phone but I can go at least 5-7 days on a charge if Im not using the apps or doing anything on my phone. It does get warm when charging so I just use the stand on my phone case so it stays cooler when charging. All in all I love the phone. It should last me a while and work just fine for what I wanted it for. When I purchased the phone it was still $300+ cheaper than a Samsung Galaxy for the same amount of memory in it. I go opposite of what everyone else does and buy things I want versus buying what everyone else has. I do recommend buying a rugged case for it and a good screen guard just to protect it.

Extremely hard to handle and not friendly. I bought a sim card from straight talk and oesn't work. the data is not available and i having hard times. I talk to a representative of straight tlalk and told me that this phone is not in their catalogue. That is the reason they can not handle this device.

Pretty nice.

So, I bought this phone because my old one went kaput & the Lumia 950 is excellent. I got the white one dual sim. Unlocked. Customizability is great. Microsoft Edge is perfect. Unlock your phone with a look if you set this feature up. Pretty nice.

Overall very happy with the phone. Pros.: Switching from Android, found Windows to be very easy to use and more user-friendly. Camera/pictures are simply the best among all the phones out there. Cons.: Not too many apps available, but with little creativity could live with it. A bit annoying: you would have to fill the home screen with icons from the top, sort of like iPhone Other than that really like this phone.

I have an android unlocked phone with MetroPCS sim card. I bought Lumia 950 to use instead of the android phone. How do I transfer the data and the downloaded apps in the android phone to my new Lumia 950 which is Windows based? CJ.
Asked by: Anonymous
You can try to download, install and open the Transfer my Data app on your Windows phone. THen, turn on Bluetooth connectivity on both the Windows Phone and the Android phone, pair them together. Next, Press OK from the request message popped up on the Android phone to allow the Transfer my Data app access to the phone data.You should see your contacts, text messages and pictures on the app screen, press Start to copy data. Once the copy process is done, press Finish to exit.If that doesn't work, often, a good carrier store can help customers with this.

Does its GPS work without internet connection like Lumia 1520's? Or is it A-GPS and needs internet like the others???
Asked by: Basri s.
Lumia 1520 was an exception. It had had on board GPS sensor, not assisted GPS and you don't need WiFi or mobile net connection. It could work like navigation devices. 2 years ago I've experienced it at Canyonlands, UT :-). But it's a pity to see that Microsoft discontinued this feature on the next models.

The XL has a larger screen and has a larger screen size as well as a larger processing speed. The processing speed may or may not lead to a faster processing time.
