Default The Verge's Lumia 950 XL review

The Lumia 950 XL simply isn't for me or the vast majority of smartphone users out there. I use Windows 10 on a daily basis on a PC, but the experience on mobile is just lacking. Microsoft has done an excellent job on its apps for other platforms, and my iPhone home screen is full of them. The Lumia 950 XL needed something exciting and unique to convince me to switch back, but it failed. That might change if a rumored Surface Phone arrives next year, but right now it's the same old waiting game for Windows on phones. A year ago I was tired of waiting, and today nothing feels like it has changed. Windows 10 papers over the cracks, but unless developers buy into Microsoft's vision of universal apps then it won't change much. More and more high-profile apps are disappearing from Windows Phone, and the Lumia 950 XL won't help bring them back. When your flagship Windows Phone fails to entice even Microsoft enthusiasts, you know you've got serious problems. Love the money quote: "If you're someone that believes Windows Phone is dead, this is the casket you’d bury it in." Damn that's cold.
