For those interested in the Lumia 950XL - it is now priced £339 at the Microsoft Store.

Also, if you go through Quidco or Topcashback you may get up to 5.25% cashback.

Please don't vote cold simply for it being a Windows 10 handset. It's an alternative OS to Android / iOS

The difference being that you can drive an Aston on all the same roads that the rest of us use but with this you are limited to driving on motorways only as it doesn't have the apps for any other road type.
And the way it's going this will end up like a track day car.

I like the Windows phone UI a lot. Windows Phone provides in reality what iOS claimed to offer, but never has - seamless and effortless use and integration with the desktop on your PC. I find Android disorganised and chaotic. Being a fully grown adult, I'm less worried about being able to run the latest fad apps. I was aware of Pokemon Go when it came out, but have no interest in it whatsoever. My phone is for calls, messaging, email, web browsing and photography.

I consider Windows phone as 'exclusive' and I'm glad there's still currently a choice. I don't run the latest hardware; I'm only just switching from a 920 (£130 sim free two years ago) to an 830, which cost £130 sim free again.

I realise that Windows Phone is not a popular choice, and that's not a problem for me because the other options presumably suit most people better, which is good for them. It will be sad if/when Microsoft give up on their phone OS, but hopefully they won't because the convergence between the mobile and desktop is a compelling proposition which the other phone OS's can't offer.

The phones are good, the apps by MS though are written by children and work better on Android!!
Its a real shame as the live tile interface is fantastic. I had been using it since the Lumia 800 but ended up getting a full refund on the 950xl as not fit for purpose - even the email system didnt work properly.

I still use a Lumia 800 and love it. Beautiful screen and build. I returned a 650 a few months ago as W10 seems to be a mess in comparison with the windows phone 7.8 OS, which is simple and fluid. If they had only fixed a few of it's shortcomings it would have been near perfect for me. I use Android tablets for access to apps.

Good deal. I tried a 950 for work for a couple of weeks and while it is a great phone with some good features, I ended up returning it due to the lack of apps.

It's a shame really as I quite liked the os and the phone.

If you don't use loads of apps then this is a great phone for the money as there are only a couple of handsets with a better camera. I have Win 10 mobile on my 930 and it is a bit buggy still (loads better than the preview) but I understand that the 950 experience is a lot better as it was designed for it.

Tempted myself but going to hold out for the Surface phone next year maybe.

No way, I splashed £299 on this only two weeks ago for the wife. I don't think anyone can argue with the hardware at this price and I'd buy again without hesitation. It's not the most interesting to look at, but the back cover can be easily replaced with a wooden one from Mozo for example. Admittedly the younger users, or those relying on Google services will be disappointed due to missing games, Snapchat etc, but for the rest of this this is a quality smartphone.

I bought one of these, loved it. Put a push mozo back on it, transformed it.
Win10 works much better on here than on the preview, and I find it 'just works' so much better than android.
I did end up returning mine for one simple reason though. I have a very specific use case and make use of the famousspey sensitive touch screen extensively on my bike. However,despite the blurb,this phone DOESN'T have it....
Other than that is still have it.

I really like these Windows phones and with a dock as mentioned in the one of the posts it is basically a desktop computer too. I have a 640XL Dual SIM and love it. I use an Phone 6+ as my day to day and the Lumia for work etc and there is little or no difference in build quality. iPhone cost me £500 Lumia cost me £99 (and its a dual SIM).

On the down side, app that are available aren't as good as their IOS/Android counterparts. Whatsapp for example didnt allow for blocking of contacts which became an issue for me a while back.

Thanks for that. I have messaged the seller to ask if it will work with my phone (640XL). If is does, I am getting one of those.

Only ever used Nokia / Microsoft phones BEFORE getting the Lumia 950.
Due to being shipped with the removable battery fitted it must have been slightly miss seated. Which I obviously did not know. This caused the phone to overheat and crash all the time. In between factory resets and other things I was doing with tech support I was asked to reseat the battery. This fixed most of the problems but by then the overheating had already damaged the phone beyond repair. After a month without a phone and very poor customer service from Tesco Mobile. I cancelled my contact and bit the bullet buying a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. I was very skeptical on having an android phone but I can honestly say it IS just as good as a Microsoft phone and having the ability to install more apps is a definite bonus. I love the other Lumia handsets 820 / 930 etc but I would be cautious with this model.

They are about this price in the second hand resellers.

Looked at one the other day and although its internal hardware looks good spec I felt it seemed very plasticky and brittle compare to my 930.
As for windows os that's fantastic and I really need more upgrade paths for when my 930 gives up.

Im on the latest insider release and cant see MS dropping it unless they continue to fail to release the hardware/mobiles for users to progress. I think this could be the killer for the platform if the market doesn't get flooded soon with new phone releases.

App wise the os has plenty for what I want.

Maybe when these drop a bit further I might take the plunge.

It's an excellent handset, apart from having an incredibly bland design. Windows 10 Mobile is still my OS of choice despite also owning a Moto X.

The camera on the 950/950XL really is fantastic with the latest firmware/OS, it can't be beat at this price.

I trialled one of these for ten days as part of Microsoft's (now cancelled) phone trial program.
Directly comparing it to my Lumia 640 there was practically no difference apart from the better camera, so for me it's not worth the price. Sub £200 and it might be worth it.

However, Microsoft are slowly forgetting about Windows on mobile and these things will seem quite outdated after a year, unless Microsoft really push to get their platform back on track.

Good price, no doubt it's a solid phone but Microsoft's stance on the future of their mobile phone business is unknown and unfortunately there is still a lack of software for the devices. Personally I like the UI and function of the phone but Microsoft would have done better if they didn't saturate the market with phones in all price points and invested more money and incentives into the software/app side.

From what I understand you might still be able to get a free dock and Office 365 12 month subscription through the "Lumia offers" app on the phone...I don't have one so can't try it but it's what I heard on one of the latest All About Windows Phone podcasts...

Also, don't quote me on this but it should still be easy enough to sell this for around £200 next year (I have sold older outdated handsets at higher % rates). So if you are a Windows fan this probably even worth it "just for now", until we see what the Surface brand will bring.

I want it mainly for the camera but if it performs identically to my 830 (other than the hardware-specific differences) then I won't bother...

The biggest difference is in app and page load times. Perhaps the biggest difference is that it can keep 16 apps in memory ready to be instantly reloaded, whereas the 830 will only keep one or two apps in memory at any one time (even if they are displayed in the recent apps, they will usually have to reload from scratch).

I had to giggle at how the iPhone scored better in some respects because of it's dimensions..... Shock Horror!! Smaller phone with smaller screen has smaller dimensions than larger phone.....!!!

I had really hoped Windows Mobile would take off more but they seem to be continually backtracking on promises (a bit like with Windows RT) and slowly giving up on it. It's a shame as a Lumia 950 + Continuum dock sounded like actual progress for smartphones and computer convergence.

Also Windows phones seem to depreciate like nothing you've ever seen. Former and recent Lumia 930 flagship is now under £100...

I never had a single offer using the Lumia Offers app - it's yet another example of Microsoft providing software that stops working, so they cease development of it

I tried the Continuum dock with this phone and it was a gimmick.
It's only really much use if you forget to bring along a laptop, plus Continuum is a PITA to carry around and the Microsoft keyboard is a terrible piece of hardware

Gave up on Windows Phone last month, Android has matured a lot more with Marshmallow from before when I was using Jellybean and switched to Windows Phone.

Live tiles is about the only thing I miss, I actually feel now that my phone is a useful tool out and about compared to what is lacking with Windows Phone....it could have been so different but Microsoft do not know how to properly market their products and were way too late to market behind Android and iOS.

That always seems to be the counter argument that iOS and android is full of gimmick apps. Coming from a Windows Phone back to Android both my wife and myself have found this far from the truth.

Windows Phone is a great OS...buggy Edge browser aside. It is let down by poor apps, often ones released are better designed on iOS or Android...and the biggest problem of all is lack of useful apps, including banking, retail shopping discounts (something we are all on here for...bargains), local government apps, travel apps and electronic device network controlling apps. Without those I found the whole Windows Phone ownership like a well built Swiss Army Knife with blunt blades.

Microsofts commitment to keeping this platform going is shakey in the extreme. The cpw sales guy said he'd bet his job on them stayung when I slated it to a potential customer what a goon next he'll tell me he'll be selling his grandmother. Microsoft put millions of 435 in the hands of 11 year olds I know my nieces have 1 and 1 lined up if they break them. Waiting for the 550 to come down to a fiver. Microsoft are finished both mobiles and pcs
