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.

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.

Caller ID

Looking for an application that tells you who is calling other than on your listed data base contacts.

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...

Phonescoop review of Lumia 950 & 950 XL?

Speaking of Windows 10 Mobile and the recently-introduced 950 & XL, it seems to me rather conspicuous by its absence is Phonescoop's usual in-depth review of either or both of those devices. Most other websites published their reports days ago. AM I missing something here?

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.

Screw Android

The world's first closed open-source OS. Android has all of the inherent shortcomings of an open source OS, with NONE of the awesome benefits. Google has had a plenty time to get it together and create a unified platform that works right. But they just can't seem to do it. Android has so many little annoyances that could easily be fixed if Google cared. But instead they seem intent on focusing on making Android more like iOS. Furthermore, this year's lineup of flagships is paltry in comparison to my expectations.

I will test drive the Lumia 950 and if it lives up to my expectations, this will be my next device. It looks like Microsoft (the king of OS) has finally gotten mobile right. There are too many advantages to having a unified Windo...

bad move

I don't understand why a company who is struggling to get market share with their mobile OS would limit the sale of a FLAGSHIP phone to a single carrier even for a short period of time. Initial release is vital to a phone's success. I will be very disappointed if this turns out to be true.

Lacking CDMA support, dual-SIM

Seems like a good effort on Microsoft's part, but IMO it is a FAIL that they omitted CDMA support and dual-active-SIMs. If Microsoft truly wanted to become the de-facto phone for businesses and "knock it out of the park", they just blew it.

(1) They should have exactly mimicked the RF capability of the iPhone6 and made the 950 a truly world phone.

(2) They should have made dual-active SIMs standard on these "flagship" phones. That would have been a great differentiator.

I love Windows 10 on our Surface Pro 3, I love the Windows 10 Mobile "fast ring insider" beta I have on my Lumia 635 spare phone, and I was REALLY looking forward to trading in my Android working phone and buying a Windows 10 Mobile phone with dual active SIM capabil...

Rich—you might want to correct the sentence "On the positive side, Nokia is catering to the no-compromise folks..."

Too bad that these: a) feel cheap; b) will have limited carrier coverage in the US. As usual, Microsoft is handicapping their own chances before they're even out of the gate.

Since Samsung dropped the ball on the Note 5

I'd be really interested in a review of the 950XL. Maybe Windows 10 is the answer to some of the aggravations of Android that Google and Samsung don't seem to want to fix.

It was no leak

Microsoft wanted to show you the hand that was dealt to them as a tease. Make no mistake about it this was not by mistake
