Unfortunately, the total lack of apps and horribly buggy OS makes this phone a loser... Way too many alternatives out there to even consider this.

There's bugs on all the operating systems. Didn't we just read the other day about Apple releasing an update to fix over 100 bugs on their latest OS.

Yeah I unfortunately have to agree.. I had a Lumia 950 for a little bit to dip my toe in Windows. I loved the hardware itself, camera was awesome, phone was fast as hell but the app store was awful and eventually I sold the phone. I want Microsoft to make it awesome but it's not there

Show me (legit from the actual company) Snapchat and Instagram for windows. That is all they care about, and if its missing those 2 apps, people dont care if the company has 3 trillion apps, it just has to have the apps that they want.

I just recently broke my Sony z3 and for now using my back up phone Nokia 521..and everytime when I click on WP market from looking at apps on there I wish to laugh and cry at the same time :D Windows acting like they don't care about improving quality app selection.

The problems for the 950/XL are exacerbated by their app marketplace, but most 2015 smartphone flagships will be on fire sales soon due to the garbage SD808/810 most were stuck with last year. As soon as the SD820 flagships start arriving, I predict a bigger decline in ASP than normal for that very reason.

just got me one, and compared to my wifes iPhone 6s plus, and my note 5 this is way better, it might be just me but I don't get this app stuff that everyone goes on about, I have 11 apps on my phone and that is it, and I run my business from it, the way it works in with my surface pro is awesome... I'm very happy with this phone

This phone has had several price drops and hasn't sold well at all. Every review says it is buggy with no update coming anytime soon. Windows doesn't sell bc it has terrible apps or apps that don't work well. This phone was supposed to rival iPhone and we see how that worked out. And no I don't have an iPhone!
