    A nice review here:

    Microsoft Lumia 950 - The Last of the Mohicans

    This phone is awesome, it made me ditch android. My only regret , Google apps like YouTube are banned.

    I love the sync with my win10 laptop :D

    @Umbra : I'm using Lumia 730 DS. I feel MSFT has kicked out my phone out of RS2 update.

    photos are awesome, but they make me skinnier because the camera has a wider angle that seems to stretch the image unlike the usual cameras.

    win mobile was good, Microsoft made a mistake , balmer was doing so bad that win mobile went down with him. it was a good OS specially touch prediction algorithms which was making it so smooth and responsive. it's a shame that it is not having more market share to attract the devs

    I am on my second Lumia 635 (they are only € 100 in Netherlands without contract), I really love the battery life. My first Lumia 635 died after 1.5 years because I was cutting wood for a fire basket, because the guy organizing the party had drunk a little bit to much beer. So I told hm, "let me do it otherwise accidents will happen". Guess what with the second axe-swing I trashed my phone, because it felt out of the arm pocket of my coat. Imagine the laughter.

    not really , sure some apps i like are only on Android but i bought it for the overall specs and especially the front dual-camera, the dual sims and in some day i should get the Nougat version.
    my Lumia is more a "work" phone because i will only do serious stuff on it , while the Huawei will be more a leisure one, youtube, social stuff., etc..

    I use Pandora myself, both on droid and windows. There is Google Play music which is free. Most of the good ones cost a little, like poweramp and jetaudio.
