saatya, 31 May 2016yes my dad use it
you are right it's a well crafted phone but believe me my friend metal... moreI agree metal feels good. But I actually think that my lumia 950XL with the leather brown replacement cover feels even better. Leather feels amazing compared to metal.
But yah it's a reference device. One that sort of shows off some of the current features of w10m. Though again I don't feel it will be ready till spring 2017 with redstone 2. So no point of even selling windows devices. I guess the niche crowd will always buy them.
saatya, 31 May 2016yes my dad use it and you are right it's a well crafted phone but believe me my friend metal... moreFair enough. It's opinion. But yah there are many mozo case replacements. And really I prefer to have a replaceable cover to allow your phone to look unique. I'm not talking about protective cases. These completely change the look of the phone simply by changing the removable cover. And like I said the mozo brown leather one makes it look beyond any flagship out there with metal, and people always ask me about it, but I still prefer the all black for some reason. And that's the beauty of the replacement covers. You can make your phone appeal to yourself. I think more flagships should do that. Rely on accessories by allowing a removable cover. This would also allow adding of SDcards/changing battery, and all that. I think in terms of that MS designed it really well by making the cover sit behind the actual screen glass.

5.5" is teh perfect size. Not too big, and ... moreAgreed.
But as one of that "small society" (5 ft 5" with small hands), I'd love to see every manufacturer bring their flagships in two size: 4.5" & 5.5"
Although my finger reach range to 4" screen max, but 4.5" still could do for me. At least those two size caters the average users of small and large hands respectively.
But Nokia or ms or anyone else, will never buy a windows phone lol.

While I can say that Nokia design were better than ms, I have to say 950 (non xl) is quite good looking. It is simple, classy and ELEGANT. Though Lumia 930, 730, 1020, 925 etc were better than ms lumias, but 950 is also in the same league. Beauty is subjective....

you are right it's a well crafted phone but believe me my friend metal feels different on hand
and in terms of build quality it doesn't stand a chance against the other 2016 flagship
and it's my opinion
Yes good to see another manufacturer taking on W10P but again why do they think a massive screen is what everyone wants, this is a tablet not a phone, do people actually carry these things around all day?!
When are they going to figure out that 4.5 inches is big enough!
They make high end Androids and iPhones in smaller sizes for a reason i.e. not everyone wants a massive phone!!!
saatya, 31 May 2016yup agreeed nokia lumia designs were much better than ms.I have to disagree. Have you held the black 950XL in your hands? It's actually quite a nice stealthy looking phone. The blending of the black version reminds me of the Sr-71 jet. The screen is in front of the case enclosure, the bezel is freaking tiny. And if you don't like the original plastic you can get different back plates which most phones don't have that option. So I do have the brown leather one from mozo and it does look more premium from the back. But I don't like the gray metal trim. I prefer the black as it blends so nicely. But Nokia phones were in my opinion pretty ugly. Only ones I felt were appealing were the lumia 830/930/icon. The rest reminded me of some fisher price toys.
Remember Funker, the company which made a phone which cannot be bought anywhere in the world?
It's great to see new WP10 devices, but 6" screen...is to big for myself, but I'm sure other will love.
Anonymous, 31 May 2016Its because its merely a copy attempt at an s7, missing the flash housing and samsungs logo on... moreThis looks nothing like the S7!
If anything they've looked to Huawei for ideas - not a bad thing, the P9 is one of the best looking phones out (which also does not look like an S7).
This could actually be a very good phone. Market dependent though.
