Ratings and reviews

Rated 4 out of5 by fromgreat designMicrosoft has recently lent me a" lumia 950" for review.I appreciate being able to use this loan unit but that has not influenced my opinion of the device or of microsoft. This is my personal view and no 3rd party has influence directly or indirectly on my opinions.Let me start by saying what a great design. it fits comfortably in the had and the controls are easily workable when making a call.The camera is the phones party piece , boasting a 20 Megapixel pure view camera to give stunning snaps and selfies.The processor was more than up to the job of running all the games and programs i use, and the windows 10 interface is a great way of keeping up with all your office applications and xbox live account..Android users will take a while to come to terms with the differences and lack of applications but i was able to swap over quite easily.In summary. A great phone , fast , efficient and user friendly.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat Phone by FarMicrosoft has recently lent me a Lumia 950s Mobile Phone for review. I appreciate being able to use this loan unit but that has not influenced my opinion of the device or of Microsoft – this is my personal view and Microsoft have no influence directly or indirectly on my opinions”.I had the loan phone for two weeks. The Box contains the phone, a USB-C cable and a Mains Charger. I was surprised that the phone did not include a charging plate, as I received with my Nokia Lumia 930.I also was lent, by someone else a Dock to link to a Screen, keyboard and mouse. I was then able to test out Continuum.I used the restore process from a backup of my Lumia 930 and the phone setup was very straight forward. I have not had any problems with the Lumia 950 phone and I am really looking forward to purchasing a Lumia 950XL in October when my phone contract ends.I like the face that we can easily replace the battery. The phone charged up very quickly and did not need to put it on charge for another two days.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromWindows 10 Everywhere :)First of all when I took it out of the edgy styled box I wondered if I had a phone or a tablet. The 5.2inch screen struck me as being massive at first but I soon found how advantageous it was. The screen is powered by something called Quad HD AMOLED. Dunno what it means but the quality of the picture is brilliant. Tried the 20 Mp camera and I am amazed at the detail this captures even when zoomed right in there is no pixel loss that I could see although it didn't manage to get rid of my wrinkles. Keeping with the camera, the 4K video is so crystal clear it looks almost like 3D.The other thing that struck me was how blisteringly fast it was compared to my own phone. No delay at all between selecting an app and ready to use.Hello was fun to use to sign in and after training it to look deep into my eyes I could open the lock screen even with my glasses on. Genius! Just in case you had a blurry night celebrating and it doesn't recognise your temporary red eyes then there is also a pin number you can use to access it. Tough if you celebrated too much and can't remember the pin either.The storage is great for a phone too at 32gb which is expandable to a really good 200gb.Continium I am told has been a fantastic step forward for bringing all devices together but I was unable to try the function because I didn't have the £55 MS Dock to connect to.My biggest bugbear with it is the positioning of the screen lock button. In the center where my finger wrapped round to hold the phone. I lost count of the times that I switched it off when chasing angry birds around my screen.In conclusion I will say that I have been a Windows PC fan for many years and now that MS have finally got true Windows across their devices I know what I am going to put on my Christmas list for Santa.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromProbably the best Windows Phone so far, but...I'm writing this as a long time Windows Phone user (having owned Lumias 800, 820, 920, 925, 830, 1020 and now 950). In many ways this phone represents the best Windows Phone experience I've had to date - and this is largely due to better specs for the phone and the burgeoning improvements in the W10 OS. Overall though, it's hard to know whether to attribute issues to the hardware or the OS and how it is optimised for Mobiles. Regardless of where to attribute the issues it's clear that this is a work in progress, and I agree that if you buy into this evolving experience you would most probably need to be a WP devotee. My key issues are: Issue 1. Phone can be unresponsive and slow to wake when pressing the power button to wake up the device. At its’ extreme I have had to wait 15 seconds for the phone to wake on some occasions. 95% of the time it wakes with no delay, but for that other 5% it is VERY annoying and something I never experienced on WP8.1. Issue 2. Stuttering music playback when playing over Bluetooth to a Bluetooth speaker. I have a Braven BRV-X, and have found it difficult to pair the device and have experienced often a breaking up and stuttering of the music being played over Bluetooth. There's no way around this - it is simply unacceptable, and if this fault is not fixed, it would be a deal breaker for me. So I hope Microsoft are listening to my listening experience! Issue 3. Yes the camera is good, but it's not as impressive as the 1020 - this is one area where Microsoft should be differentiating itself. For a flagship device - and since Microsoft appear to no longer be supporting a successor to the Lumia 1020 - this device should be an absolute killer camera. As I understand it, it is now Samsung which holds the Camera Phone crown with its’ evolving improvements in imaging. For a platform which was formerly the leader in mobile photography this is - please pardon the pun - a loss of focus. For this reason I sincerely hope that Microsoft remember that one of the reasons that Lumia users were loyal to the WP platform was because of imaging. Issue 4. Mapping and Navigation. As with imaging, maps were the other key differentiator for the WP platform. My HERE apps for Maps and Drive+ were the envy of my friends. Now W10 is not being supported by HERE, but crucially Microsoft do not have replacement application solutions of equal or better functionality with slick user experience. Mapping and navigation are for me one of the most important functions a smartphone should provide, so for Microsoft to willfully allow loss of traction – please pardon the additional pun – is again, both hugely disappointing and dismaying. It also means that Microsoft are reducing the likelihood of attracting users from other platforms, since if the core applications are not good enough, how does this reflect on the non-core apps? It reflects VERY badly from a user experience perspective. Aside from these 4 serious issues I must admit that I'm seriously enjoying the W10 OS on Mobile. Every week or so there is a new app that joins or updates the W10 app experience. The OS itself it a sizable improvement on WP8.1. However, overall, Microsoft should be focusing more resources on fixing hardware and software issues for their most up to date flagship WP experiences. Oh and one other thing, the flagship device in 2015/16 should be waterproof.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat features, love the operating system !I've been using this for about 2 months now and love it. The operating is fantastic, I would recommend starting afresh rather than restoring an old set up as this will install all your old photo's on your phone when you've probably already got them on your OneDrive anyway. Let the phone settle down and install everything, update itself etc. You will then get a really quick reliable phone with excellent battery life and a brilliant camera ! .... just store everything on OneDrive, this makes life simple when going from phone to P.C to Xbox etc !

Rated 5 out of5 by fromWHAT A PHONE!!!!I've been a windows phone user for 4 years from the HTC on 7 platform going to 1020 on 8/8.1 now the 950 a week or so after release, and you can see the evolution through all the products.The 950 on windows 10 platform is by far the best smartphone (personally) on the market. I’m not an employee of Microsoft before that thought is contemplated.The 950 itself is an excellent bit of kit and not had any of the issues mentioned in these comments. Yes, it does go a bit hot when making it work, but do you not when working out that little bit harder? Sometimes there is a screen freeze here and there, but nothing that is a problem. Fluidity when using the phone, clarity of the screen, clever UI, easy navigation and easy to manage tiles. I bought this phone, not because of the app’s, but to have something original (sick of seeing android & IOS), easy to use and also have the ease of accessing my documents, photos and apps on my whatever device I’m on. Continuum has taken my 950 smartphone to a miniature desktop, connecting via Bluetooth sees a small delay in response between phone and T.V, but, using the dock (a little pricy) with continuum sets the bar for the rest of smartphones to step up to.The integration across windows 10 devices is seamless, I own windows 10 laptop and Xbox one elite and love the fact that my phone can be connected to my Xbox and used as a navigation device and keyboard, or open some of the games/ apps on the 950 downloaded for the laptop. I understand that droid & IOS has something similar, but I don’t think that they have nailed it like Microsoft has.Like all of MS's new OS releases, updates are needed to iron out teething problems, again, something that can be lived with. But all in all, a very happy windows 950 user which recommends this to the tech buffs & business men.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat PhoneHaving read reviews on the Lumia 950 for weeks, reading that Windows 10 mobile was all but dead. I finally decided to go for it and buy it as a replacement for my Lumia 925 that was struggling with Windows 10. I have tried Iphone and find it too restrictive. I tried Android for 4 weeks prior to purchase and didn't like it at all, it has a life of it's own. The Lumia 950 is brilliant. The operating system is clean and simple. The battery is lasting well over a day, some days 75% remaining after 16hrs. The screen is crystal clear. The camera is super quality. The phone is slim and lightweight. The back cover is plastic yes but i can change it with loads of different styles. The battery is easy to change as a result The only thing missing is the Apps, maybe they will come one day. I really don't know what people are going on about in these reviews. Well worth buying and for the missing Apps I use an old iPhone
