  1. I’ve been using the 950XL since the week it was released, and I have no complaints.
    As a phone, it works nicely. The integration between calls, messaging, etc is very smooth, and I especially like what’s been done with the mobile version of Outlook.
    A common complaint about Windows phones is the lack of apps. I’m sorry, but I’m just not seeing it. So far, I’ve found an app for every situation that I’ve needed. The games selection does feel a bit limited, but I’m not a big gamer.

    The cameras are fantastic – the main one is the best I’ve seen in a phone.
    The battery tends to last for about a day and a half, the way I use the phone, but it recharges really quickly. I got one for my wife as well, and she’s less demanding on the phone, and she only needs to recharge about once every 3-4 days.

    The other side of things – using the MS Hub with the phone – seemed like a gimick at first, but the more I use it, the more I like it. At first, it felt a bit strange plugging a mouse, keyboard, and screen into my phone – but having said that, it DOES work, and it works well. The complaint here is likely to be the one I mentioned earlier – not all Windows Store apps support this mode, so the pool of available apps is reduced.
    As far as performance goes, it feels like a mid-range laptop. I can see it being useful for people who hot-desk it, where the screen, keyboard and mouse stay put in one place. Of course, you don’t NEED a mouse – in this mode, the phone works as a trackpad.

    I’ve also tried hooking up a projector, instead of a screen, and used the version of PowerPoint that comes with the phone to do presentations. That worked like a charm. You need an Office 365 subscription to get the most out of the built-in Office apps, but that’s an expense, not a problem.

    Overall, I’m very happy with it. This is, beyond a doubt, the best phone I’ve owned.
