Continuum on the Lumia 950 just got better

In recent efforts the hacking team responsible for bringing full Windows 10 ARM onto the Lumia 950 (XL) have managed to bring Continuum into play. What that means is that you can connect your phone to a TV or monitor and use it like a regular PC! Finally the hassle of having to do everything through the small screen has been defeated.

When full review of Lumia 950?

I'm just wondering when Phonescoop will have a full review of the new Lumia 950 (preferably unlocked, preferably the dual-active-SIM model)?

Phonescoop is the only website that gives legitimate information on how each device performs as a PHONE, in addition to all of the other specs & performance measurements of interest.

I believe I would like to buy the unlocked, dual-SIM 950 from Microsoft, but without seeing Phonescoop's review of it first, I'm not buying anything.

Thanks, I look forward to hearing when Phonescoop will provide this review.
I'm sure you've seen it by now, but in case not:

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.

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.
I love the 950 handset itself, it doesn't feel cheap to me at all...no "flexing", no squeaks, just very solid. I prefer the lighter phone, so I'm happy Microsoft chose all polycarbonate construction...that's a PLUS in my book.

I'm with you on the c...

Caller ID

Looking for an application that tells you who is calling other than on your listed data base contacts.
I loaded the "Truecaller" app by "True Software Scandanavia AB" on my Lumia 950 a few days ago, it seems to work fairly well so far.

Not just for Windows die-hards

I have a Lumia 950 dual-SIM, purchased unlocked at the local Microsoft store. I love it. Love the display resolution, love the Windows 10 user-interface, love the integrated Microsoft productivity apps, love the preloaded maps/navigation, love the fact that it's a dual-SIM phone with twice the memory of our iPhone 6, yet cost us $100 less than the iPhone 6 did, love the camera.

I disagree that it is only suitable for Windows fans, I think it is entirely suitable for anyone who wants a solid, productive mobile device that isn't rabid about, or totally dedicated to, either the Apple or Google camps - anyone who wants a good, solid phone that works, one built with productivity in mind, rather than making a fashion/social statement or strivin...

The Price?

Today 18 November I spotted an ad choice ad from the Microsoft Store offering this for $549.00US. I browsed over to the Microsoft Store and they did not have a price listed. I did see something load, briefly, that indicated a lower price but it vanished and I could not get it to reappear. Must be getting close to launch. I saw the Lumia 950XL is already discounted at the store.
