Lumia 950XL Dual Sim. Bad experience. The apps i usually had from the other platform that i switched from are normally outdated if not inexistent (Social Media, Messenger Apps, Navigational Apps, Banking Apps, etc). And just recently all of a sudden, Camera's gone bad. Keeps focusing and can't get any decent pictures. Going back to android. But man, that's a lot of money i wasted on garbage phone.

I like 950XL's hardware. The camera has 5th gen OIS, big aperture at f/1.9, triple led rgb flash, high ISO capability, USB type C, removable back/battery, futureproof microSD slot, gorilla glass 4, NFC, Snapdragon 810, wireless charging, high ppi amoled screen, iris scanner, continuum, miracast, etc.

You'll probably reply with app statistics next since the hardware is top notch. Similar to your marketshare analogy, I dont choose an OS based on the number of apps, I go for quality.

So stick with Android kid, I can decide on my own.

12,000 thumbs up. Good enough for me. Apple is a loser compare to their weekly poll.

  • san

so far Lumia 550 as the best specs for its price compared to any other brand which runs on android windows was far better,Expecting more from Microsoft corp........Please relase more devices.

everyone is entitled to have their own opinion, right, but I believe that we should give our hard earned money to have a device that suits our needs and smartphones nowadays is a necessity and as for me go for the brand/manufacturer you trust most rather than buy a different brand and then feel frustrated about it,

You call Windows garbage, I call your Andy garbage. Don't discourage people like that. Try to give out more professional comments rather than, "it's garbage, don't get it".
