Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Design & App Not The Only Problem

By  | 

Well, it looks like Microsoft failed to attract the consumers with their new Lumia 950 XL but why is that? We know that it is definitely not the hardware since its specs are as good as any premium smartphone in the market.

Some people seems to think it is the design. While it is not ugly, it is also not the most interesting smartphone we saw last year. Other seems to think that it is because it is running on the Windows 10 and the app store is not as good as the Google Play Store and Apple AppStore.

Others hear about some of the issues that the owners have been having like overheating issues and short battery life issue and are afraid of making the switch. There were also reports about the Lumia 950 XL rebooting itself constantly with no apparent reason.

Many of them also reported that Microsoft did fix a lot of the issue but it might be too late to change their minds now.

    Got the 950XL. Love it. It doesn’t reboot, doesn’t overheat. Was able to restore all apps from my 920. There are 700,000 apps in the store. How many do you use?

    950 XL does everything I need it to to run my business in conjunction with O365 and Azure. It has a great screen and takes brilliant pictures and videos. Windows 10 mobile was buggy when it first came out but as an insider, I am happy with the recent builds. Panorama returning to the camera app and some new apps tricking in to the store are welcome. Continuum is brilliant e.g. when visiting a client in conjunction with a wireless display adapter and Bluetooth mouse and keyboard – edit and present that Powerpoint.

    The Lumia 950XL is the best smartphone we ever bought. For a businessman who is used to work with Windows 10 on his PC, is this smartphone absolutely the best you can buy because Windows mobile 10 is the best software Microsoft ever build. Microsoft had the best app’s for businessmen and the camera with pure view is the best on the market.
