Mobile Phone Lumia 950 XL Just a disappointment

I am a previous owner of a Lumia 1520 and loved the quality, build, and feel of the phone. All of the new microsoft phone products, including this one, feel extremely cheap, light, hollow, and flex when you hold them. Not to mentioned as you change screens you constantly get the 'Loading' message.

I'm sorry but at this point in the game, you should not receive a 'Loading' message unless you are downloading a file to your phone.

Many of the major US banks are pulling their apps from the windows platform. For example, Chase, Bank Of America, etc. The apps are going in the wrong direction.

I struggled to stay with a windows phone because I truly loved my Lumia 1520 but now I have to bid them farewell. This is just a disappointment....

The Apps

I don't quite understand the apps issue. How can the banks, especially the big ones, deny windows phone users of bank apps when Microsoft is willing to write them? Apple is not even an American company anymore, at least it pays no US Corp tax on device sales to anywhere in the world, NOT EVEN HERE IN THE US and their devices are in most of our schools but they have bank apps. Something seems fishy here, perhaps restraint of trade, collusion etc. Someone needs to inform Americans about this.
Hmm well that's good to know, what about android? is that also not US based company?

Ok, so maybe it's a little buggy NOW. But this is definitely the mobile OS of the future. My next device will definitely be a Windows Mobile device. Thanks for this great review.

Great Review!

Thank you for the very in-depth review of Windows 10 Mobile ("W10M"). Typical thoroughness and fairness that are Phonescoop hallmarks.

I've added my comments below, but first I have to ask again when you think we might see a hardware review of the Lumia 950 and 950 XL...I'm keen to see how they stack up as phones, in addition to all of the good stuff in W10M. How is their signal-holding ability? How do the incoming calls sound to you and how do you sound to the other party, in regular phone mode and speakerphone mode? How do they sound for music playback?

I apologize for the lengthy stream-of-consciousness post below, written as I read Eric's review, so if you're not that interested in Windows Phone (WP8.1) or W10M, please just stop r...
Does Edge on W10M have the "Reading View" like W10-Tablet/Desktop Edge does? That is a major, marvelous feature.

yes it does

Cortana on my Lumia 635 AUTOMATICALLY delivers incoming texts over the Bluetooth headset, reading them aloud to me, then...
