Just a disappointment


Jan 5, 2016, 4:01 PM
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 comments that Windows 10 Mobile is still just too slow and buggy for general release. My Lumia 950 came with build 10586.0, it recently auto-updated to 10586.29, and frankly I've noticed no improvements at all with the .29 build. In fact it seems like battery life is actually worse with the .29 build.

I love the 950 in terms of hardware (its lightness, solidness, great screen, great camera, fast-charging, dedicated camera button), so for me, I'd actually prefer to have my new 950 running on WP...

I totally agtee with you about running WP8,1. I like the OS version and still use my Lumia 1520 on wifi. I hope they improve it. I would definitely go back.
