Bye Bye Lumia 950

After the latest updates, I am throwing in the towel for the the Lumia 950.

I originally got this phone for its camera.  And I would still say that if when it works, it performs better than any other camera phone (and point and shoot in my opinion).  But that is ONLY if it is working.  With the latest updates, the camera app would sometimes crash and worse yet, sometimes even restart the phone.  This was super frustrating as some shots once gone, you can't get back.

The recent trip to Portland clearly shows that it is time to move off of the phone...
a) Phone was draining battery.  Within 2 hours of waking up, the phone would be down to 70% battery.  Maybe the battery is dying after 1.5 years, but this is not the first time the battery drains.  Usually when there are updates approaching or outstanding the phone would go crazy and seemingly do things in the background without you knowing or wanting, causing the battery to drain at times when you need it most (like during the day).

b) The camera (the one thing I really loved about the phone) started crashing whenever I took a photo.  Case and point - 360 shot with the panorama feature would cause the phone to crash and restart for every photo taken.  Imagine going: "ok everyone, say cheese on 3...  1, 2, ah crap.. the app froze... sorry" - That is just sad.

c) GPS/navigation would freeze half the time it is used - not to mention the 'dot' that indicates where you are isn't always correct anymore. What good is an offline map (or online map) with GPS if it can't locate where you are???  Super not cool when trying to navigate and the app just gets 'stuck' while you are driving.

RIP Lumia 950... onto Samsung S8!
