I bought a Microsoft Lumia 950 directly from the Microsoft online store. No headphones are included.

As far as I know, the blinking icon simply indicates that the battery charging. I've tried multiple chargers with my Lumia 950, including a Nokia wireless charger, and have never seen the icon not blink during charging. I initially suspected that the blinking icon indicates less than ideal charging current, because I normally use wireless charging, but based ...

According to this Microsoft support article Lumia phones support the AHJ standard, except the Lumia 920 and 820 which also support OMTP. The article makes no mention of newer models, so I pinged @LumiaHelp on Twitter to check if it's still up-to-date. They confirmed that it is, and that the Lumia 950 supports AHJ headsets. (Update: unfortunately the @...

The Homido VR FAQ ignores Windows Phone completely Homido can be used with Android smartphones and iPhones.....You will find the list of the 300+ apps compatible with Homido on our catalog app Homido Center...for Android and iPhone. but if you go to the Homido VR compatibility page, it lists Windows Phone as simply "compatible" (compared to "optimum"...

Unfortunately, you're out of luck. That has been a sore point -- for many people -- for years. Even if you ran it all the way down to where it forcefully shut itself off, it would restart as soon as it had enough juice to do so. You've got a couple of options to mimic the off state: Put it in Airplane Mode at night. Turn on Quiet Hours, remove all VIPs and ...

Lumia 950 can be used as VR gear along with other needed hardwares. A video from Microsoft's YouTube channel shows using VR on Lumia 950. Lumiaconversationsuk mentions VR in Lumia 950 in this article, Microsoft has been working with Virgin Atlantic to create ‘Ida’, an Immersive Digital Adventure built as a Windows 10 universal app, featuring ...

You are missing the flashlight option. To add it back (or remove any other option) go to Settings --> System --> Notifications and Actions. There should be a view of all your quick action items which you can drag around like you can with the tiles on the start screen to reorder them. Beneath is a link "add/remove" quick actions which lets you enable/...

I use to have the same problem. Then updated the phone to OS build: 10.0.10586.29 and all seems to work fine although the phone gets hot when I am using it while it is charging.

My summary of the referenced links below: Check your storage available, you need up to 1.5 GB free space. New phones allocate System & reserved 4.98 GB of 29.1 GB. You may also have some pre-installed Apps & games taking up space (mine was 1.05 GB). If you have plenty of storage space available then you can ignore the erroneous storage space ...

As @Indrek said in his comments, the Application Memory cap is 1536MB. This has been observed using an app called AIDA64. Since there is no reference to the limit on devices with more than 2GB of RAM we must take the practical result. You can also refer to this Microsoft documentation which lists app memory limit as, 185MB for Lower memory devices, 390MB ...

This can happen as your carrier can push settings for your SIM card to your phone. Just do the restart, no worries.

I don't think that video is a fair representation of the phone and its performance in real-world use. I mean, when was the last time you rapidly opened multiple apps in a row like that without actually using them, and had a stopwatch running and/or were doing the same thing on other phones for comparison? Obviously even the tiniest variations in speed, ...

Your body will burn calories even if you do relatively little so it may well be accruing calories over the time you have it monitoring, in addition to sensing motion.

There's no way I know of to prevent a 950 from eventually reaching Creators Update again. You can re-flash the phone with an older OS version easily enough (Windows Device Recovery Tool can do that, or you can do it manually to whatever build you find using iutool.exe, which comes with WDRT). However, the phone will re-update back to the latest supported ...

It seems as Google has removed the app from the store. I guess they also discontinued the backend service as Indrek mentioned.

See this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4077675/windows-10-update-kb4077675 They know they broke it, say they will fix it. FWIW, I have been using the free Adobe PDF reader; it has a few features not present in the browser - you can search for text - but you have to download the file first, which doesn't always work, depending on how a site ...

Make sure that your messaging app is allowed to run in the background. If it is not, it won't be able to send notifications, etc. In the settings menu for allowing/disabling background apps the messaging app has the name "Microsoft Messaging" as well as a winking smiley face message bubble which is low resolution a not similar in any way to the standard ...

It seems this is not possible in the current version of the camera app on Windows 10 Mobile. You should add this suggestion in the feedback app. Meanwhile there are some thrid-party camera apps in the store that might provide you that functionality.

You might be able to do that previously but in latest Windows Camera app, tapping anywhere on the screen instead of on the camera icon results in manual focus. This helps you out to focus anywhere you want. Since you are 950 user, I am dead sure that you are quite updated and hence you can use manual-focusing feature instead of tapping-anywhere capture. If ...

There's a Task Manager app which is similar to the native PC version. It displays what background processes are running (in the background) and you can terminate them too. P.S. There's an app called Battery X , it is good with tracking your battery's usage, strength, performance etc.

You can charge from 2.1 amps and up, but it will be slow unless you use at least 3 amps. I use the Anker PowerCore because it gives me 4.8A output and charges in about 30 minutes...

There has been an update (mostly bug fixes) released for OneDrive in the last few hours. Install it; it may solve your problem.
