After using the 950XL with Continuum daily for a month, here are my thoughts on the current Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile Ecosystem. Enjoy!

    Dave, I loved windows. If you have any connections in Microsoft, please tell them to start them again, with same software but Android based… Please please if you can.

    I was a loyal Windows Phone user for years but sadly they left me…I thought the OS was the best of the 3 OSs at the time and they easily had the best cameras on a phone for years. It was too bad they charged manufacturers a fee for using windows phone when Android was free…I felt that really hampered them as well as getting into the smartphone game so late.

    You know Lumia 950 950xl had great potential if Microsoft kept updating these phones and more importantly kept making more of these phones man they would have I bet you they probably would rival Samsung in iPhone I cannot see how people hated it cuz I have this phone and it has super great potential to the point I'm impressed you can change your gigs of ROM you can do a lot of impressive Feats that other phones can t reach . The Lumia 950xl phone can reach up the 2tb to external storage 1tb of built-in storage by using OneDrive that is very impressive it's definitely ahead of its time some ways very much so I just wish that Microsoft kept making more these Microsoft Lumia 905 xl phones can Central they had such great potential too much so much so I would have loved to see what their new designs would have been like too bad but they stopped I love to see if they could Advance even higher than now I think they had a great potential and newer phones like a Lumia 950 and 950xl that probably was a starting place a great potential the that's not mean they're perfect they're not perfect I can omit the Lumia 950 XL had some pretty bad downsides with software updates and some system problems but in reality like I said for 2015 that was a pretty big deal if only Microsoft let the user control what the snartphone is and what it capabilities could do it would definitely be an impressive feat of a Smartphone think about that. if Microsoft made true 1tb built in of storage and 8 GB RAM I mean a reasonable price less $800 than they make a lot of business it's just a thought a theory
