A while ago I had a Microsoft Lumia 950 black smart phone. It left me a very nice impression, as at a certain moment I had to sell it and got on it some money and an low budget android phone. This was somewhere back in 2016. Compared at that moment with galaxy s7 and s7 edge, it was a competitive phone. I made lots of tests at that point and I saw what was better and what was lacking the Windows phone in the year he was launched.
For 2016 Microsoft Lumia 950 had a better camera in darkness and with lumia I was able to take shots of the sky stars and moon at night.
Now in 2018 I managed to get in possession of a Microsoft Lumia 950 white.
As performance I had no problems using it now, camera still clear and nice. First thing I was missing, coming from an android phone was, Google Chrome and I had to find a replacement fast as everyone needs a good browser. A good browser is a must. After I researched up and down the internet, I found a perfect replacement of Google Chrome. I want first to mention that I tried: Edge, UC Browser, Surfy Browser, Pro Browser, Maxthon Browser, mainly all the browsers that search result on Microsoft Store are showing, but not satisfied with them compared to Chrome on android.
The alternative is Coc Coc Browser. I found that is very famous in Vietnam. It is best browser at the moment for Windows mobile in 2018.
After that I could use Youtube as well, another thing that was missing on my Windows phone. I just created from Coc Coc Browser a pinned tile on the home screen and I have a perfect functional YouTube on Windows phone now.
Coc Coc browser, best browser for Windows mobile in 2018
Everything else you can find normally on Windows phone, Telegram, Whatsapp, Facebook, Messenger, Skype (his home), even Zedge the app used top on android for wallpapers and ringtones.
I will also make tomorrow an article about Windows customization as there are new ways to customize it in 2018.
Also let's don't forget the main functions of Microsoft Lumia 950:
*Double tap screen to wake up.( LG G6 has it)
*Glance screen (Always on dark screen watch and weather like Samsung from S7 and up, Microsoft even has wallpaper on dark screen, something Samsung didn't reached to have yet)
*Face recognition (like the famous iPhone X that discovered it 2 years later)
*20 Mpx Carl Zeiss Pure view camera that can take pictures with the stars and moon at night... phones like S9 and iPhone X can not yet... maybe in few years.
One thing I was missing when I changed from android to windows phone and I didn't found an replacement. When I will find the replacement I will post it here. I couldn't have Facebook store. The new, so useful Facebook market button, where you sell and buy things.
If someone else can find a solution for Facebook store on Windows phone before me, please live it in comments, and I will make a post about that and give you all credits.
So as a crossing line to make the total at the end, Yes it is totally worth to use Windows phone in 2018, it has some advantages from some points of view, like the removable battery.
