This machine emperor once wanted to completely abuse Apple and Android, but now it is completely cold

In the second week of September, only a few days have passed since Huawei and Apple's new product launches. I know that I am in the news of the two manufacturers every day, and even my dream is that Yu Chengdong and Cook are barbara at the press conference. Regarding the information of the two new products, I believe that the friends already know about it, and they will wait for the pre-orders to go on sale. But in addition to Huawei and Apple, in fact, a major event happened in the mobile phone circle a few days ago, and a machine emperor turned cold again! Speaking of which, it is also emotional. Back then, I still wanted to buy this mobile phone to play with, but I gave up because I was too shy. After all, this mobile phone still wants to be as tough as the iPhone and Android phone king, and the hardware configuration and comprehensive product strength are quite capable. Well, I'm not going to be a riddle person. The machine king mentioned earlier is the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. Do you have any Lumia fans? Raise your hand and let me know~ Source: The Internet is just a change of time. After being officially abandoned by Microsoft, the Lumia 950 XL will now be abandoned by the folk gods. Today, I understand the whole wave of memories of my brother, and I will show you the glory and loneliness of the Lumia 950 XL in those years.

Abandoned Lumia King

The Lumia 950 XL was released in 2015, a year of hidden dragons and crouching tigers, and the competition can be said to be very fierce. At the same time, the top students include Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge and Note 5, as well as Apple's iPhone 6S / 6S Plus. Source: Apple briefly gave everyone a brief overview of the Lumia 950 XL Parameters: The phone uses a 5.7-inch 2K OLED screen that supports screen overview. The polycarbonate body measures 151.9 x 78.4 x 8.1 mm, weighs 165 grams, and comes in two colors: matt white and black. The 3340 mAh removable battery, the USB Type-C interface supports fast charging, which can be charged to 50% in 30 minutes, and also supports Qi wireless charging. 20-megapixel PureView rear lens (triple LED flash), plus a 5-megapixel wide-angle selfie lens. 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM, support microSD card expansion. In addition, there are aluminum side buttons, iris scanning and other features. As an afterthought, it is not feasible to carry the Snapdragon 810 processor, but many manufacturers were using it at that time, which is also a general trend. This wave of configuration of the Lumia 950 XL is enough to compete with Android flagships such as Samsung Note 5 or Sony Z5. Unfortunately, because of the rotten Windows 10 Mobile system and the subsequent delisting of Windows Phone. The Lumia 950 XL, which was originally positioned as a flagship, was not taken seriously by Microsoft, which also led to hasty maintenance in the later period. But it doesn't matter, since the official is sloppy, then it's the turn of the "folk god" to take action!

The Amazing LumiaWOA Project

After Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 10 Mobile, an amazing LumiaWOA project was born. Well, the so-called LumiaWOA project is to let Lumia mobile phones use the Windows On Arm system. A bunch of independent developers tinkered with the old Lumia and new Android models to refresh the system in order to meet the needs of geeks. And the Lumia 950 XL, which was forgotten by Microsoft, is being resurrected with this project, and it also occupies a place in the machine circle as a "brush machine". WOA Project source: GitHub brushed the Lumia 950 XL for Windows, which can not only run PC software, but even play PC games. Android and Apple are all standing aside, and a mobile phone that can run Windows is called a "productivity tool". Tactically, it's easier said than done. It took developers several years to explore, and it was only a little bit. For example, in 2021, some developers have posted photos of the Lumia 950 XL running Windows 11.

Source: Developer @Gustave Monce What’s more, the developer also arranged a “phone dialer” for the Lumia 950 XL with Windows 11. The contact page, quick jump letters, and scroll bar display are all available, and the basic calling function of the mobile phone has not fallen. Source: Twitter @gus33000 And the success of Lumia 950 XL flashing into the new system has also driven the trend of developers to flash the new system for other models, such as Mi 6, Mi 8, Mi MIX 2, OnePlus 6T Waiting for the mobile phone, it already supports flashing into the Windows 11 ARM system. The LumiaWOA project has attracted more and more developers to join, but this booming momentum has not been maintained.

Folk gods can't take it anymore

Just a few days ago, the LumiaWOA project for Lumia 950 / XL phones will welcome for the final update. Gustave Monce, the main developer of LumiaWOA, said, "It's not that they don't want to do it, it's that they can't. Brother understand summed up a wave of dehydration, there are three main reasons for this. First of all, the Snapdragon 810 processor of the Lumia 950 XL is old, and the performance, heat dissipation and stability are not very good. The second is the driver's pot. The developer does not know the existing driver, and it is not difficult to adapt. Finally, the developer team is shrinking, and there are not enough people to handle the sheer volume of bug reports. Once these three Debuffs are stacked, the LumiaWOA project of the Lumia 950 XL will naturally not go on. The current developer has announced that the project will be archived in the next few weeks and then stalled, and it will also be announced that the project will be stopped and issues that have occurred will not be dealt with. Although it is a pity, I still have to say that the Lumia 950 XL will not have a new system update in the future. The "King of Machines" who once wanted to be tough with Android and Apple, after being abandoned by Microsoft and the people, is really going to quit the machine circle this time.
