When Microsoft announced in July that it was writing down almost the entire cost of its Nokia acquisition and laying off 7,800 employees from its phone division, many took it as a sign that the bell had finally tolled for Windows Phone. Despite a promising debut in 2010 and some very compelling offerings since, Microsoft’s mobile platform has failed to gain significant traction, peaking at just 3.4% of the global market in 2013 before plummeting to its current low of 1.7%. Microsoft’s restructuring, along with its move to port its Office productivity suite to iOS and Android, was seen by some as a tacit admission that it had lost the smartphone war – and mediocre hardware offerings like the Lumia 830 did little to change that perception.

The October launch of the Lumia 950 (and its larger sibling, the 950 XL) opened a new chapter in Microsoft’s mobile history. The Lumia 950 is a bundle of contradictions: a halo smartphone in a ho-hum chassis; a cutting-edge operating system with a still-nascent ecosystem; a product built not necessarily to sell in volume, says Microsoft, but as a kind of concession to the long-suffering Windows Phone loyalists. In other words, the Lumia 950 is unlike any smartphone that’s come before. While it probably doesn’t represent the future of Windows on phones, it’s one of the only two flagships available on the platform today. So is it worth the $600 Microsoft wants for it?

Only if you’re a fan.

Me and my girlfriend have Lumia's, a 635 and 735.She diesn't bother updating it to win10 and is still very pleased with it. No hassles, no problems etcI have updates mine and never had any issue with it.Very smooth transition to win10 and I find it awesome.And we often get new updates etc, so It's far from dead. in case of the store..ah well…there are alot of apps, hou won't find through the normal menu. What helped though wad reinstalling it. But still, many appd you neef to find by manually searching by letter of name. But again, I don't use a shitload of apps, just the most important ones…i Just don't bother actually, so I al very happy with the Lumia!

Only losers uses this type of phone?

Ziggy Sheppard says:

In the UK, you can get this phone from Microsoft directly for just £249 (about $305) with a free display dock which suddenly makes this phone one of the best deals available. The equivalent iPhone costs almost 3 times as much direct from Apple.

Eskyl Music says:

most of the bugs are fixed now. Now windows 10 mobile are far better than ios and android.

Charlie Boyd says:

I found windows 10 to be more stable than windows 8 and I have a Lumia 640

Sean Dougan says:

Josh Figueroa says:

at 3:12 what weather app is that ?? or is it just the stock one?

MrGrislyTooth says:

Honestly I would have a Windows Phone and the 950 would be my first choice but the issues need to be fixed before I consider making the switch. My biggest problem would have to be the marketplace being empty of the apps I use most and the duplicates of which most people wouldn't download because it's not from the actual developer. If Microsoft can fix these issues I would most likely get it instead of the iPhone.
