I got the loose case with less then 4 cover removes, in fact, it started from the second. The build wuality of this phone is not even close to be on par with nokia, not miles away. This phone is the worse quality i have ever owned in my entire life, this is the samsung of the past. Yesterday, i noticed that my phone is mostly off then on while keeping it in my pocket...something wasn't right that's for sure! So i tuned it on and started to bend it a bit, sideways. It turned off fast. So the battery had something. The 3 pins were to far from eachother and minding the fact that the phone is as flexible as a plastic toy it turned off. I ended up using some needles to bring them back. Now it doesn't do it anymore. But for how long? The build quality of this device is a joke. And i am not gonna defend it. I love the device. But i feel like i am using a plastiky samsung

Hi guys, regarding to the 950xl i bought it on Saturday, its really awesome and amazing but the problem that i found is that the phone gets stuck to much and some of the applications like Whats app didn't get installed. :(
know my father is returns it to the shop :0 :(
I tell my experience while waiting for my 950XL I was using a LG G4, arriving mine I sold to a friend, this week with this beautiful team, note that brings a very very good camera, sound and screen, Android has apps not yet come to W10M and several are one step ahead of ours, but ... despite the powerful hard 4-5 times it appeared mje: the application "X" does not respond, notice lag in 2-3 opportunities, in about 3-4 seconds remaining labeled and then answered, then still in the android 6.0 v your things and still requires much hard. All S.O. They have their stuff but as that of W10M the underline more and more q think everything is by the lack of apps, if you would have the same apps on android q maybe not complain of everything. Windows 10 with enhanced apps that brought (Facebook, Instagram (BETA), Twitter, etc.) are a step forward and that is noteworthy. Now with my 950XL SUPER I'm happy, I love the camera and screen, I have not experienced any problems, only slight delay in Groove music to start the Now playing songs that after passing does not and x time delay in the notifi. Messenger with respect to the PC. I really like W10M and improve in future updates, but we are also impossible to form, if delayed 3 more months and polished best, as we were going to criticize, I hope to continue to encourage developers to make more Aplis and better not ask things not you others claim or that others do not. W10M like this very pointed the finger, I would say, which is free of lag and failures cast the first stone haha ​​(no, not the big apple would throw)
Regarding user experience in Windows 10. You have to remember that its not a complete product. It keeps evolving. At first in comparison to Win8.1 it felt like a tiny step backwards but with the recent builds....especially the 164 build, it feels so much better than 8.1. I mean, I have 10 on my pc and its awesome to be able to start work on my XL and finish up on my PC seamlessly. It's great. Since the last update, I have only had two reboots thanks to WhatsApp calls, but I know it will be fixed. After all more updates are coming and it will only get better.
Regarding this "creaky back cover" story. I purchased my new unit and no creak or squeak or any noise for the matter. It has been observed that you get the creaking noise when the cover is repeatedly removed and bent and twisted. Basically if the back cover gets excessively removed and replaced it will get creaky.....and I mean excessively (like someone who wants to replace a battery 10 times in a day). Otherwise, nothing 'creaky' about this phone.
Regarding durability, unless you plan on doing construction work, breaking rocks, opening bottles, hitting nails, sitting on it, digging holes and killing bugs with this phone you have nothing to worry about when it comes to durability. Personally I care my stuff, my 920 still looks brand new and its white. I bought a case for it and I haven't dropped it but if you look on youtube you will see a few videos regarding durability.
Scott, 02 Apr 2016Hi fellas!
I am a Lumia 1520 user and I wanna go for an upgrade, however I'm confused about ... moreHey, I have my 950XL and it is an amazing phone. The plastic doesnt feel too bad (infact weight of the phone is comfortable due to the build). Between elite x3 and 950xl depends on what phone size you are comfortable with. I had lumia 1520 earlier and I felt it to big little big for my comfort. 950xl feels good with marginally smaller footprint but better screen to body ratio. X3's back side built quality didn't look very good in my opinion.
Lastly, i think we will significant price difference between 2 phones by the time X3 ships. So it may come down to best bang for thr buck.

I have a question Microsoft phones have the same durability like Nokia ones, Because I have Nokia Lumia 1020 and I'm thinking to upgrade...please respond :) Thank You!
I don't care who said what and what are said,but i do not like any android phone even if i get one for free. Since i start using phones with Windows 8.1 or 10. It make the communication and other things like taking photos much more comfortable. If you only are looking for a phone go and buy something cheap, but if you need computing, phone and much more go for the Windows phones. Anyone can say bad things about any product to impress others.Thumbs up for the new 950 and 950 xl.
Pay the troll no mind Scott. Not sure about the camera unfortunately but I can say that if you like the camera of the 930, the 950xl is up your street. The HP phone does look great spec wise, you can check that out on this site......tho some of the specs appear incorrect.
For example, we know the snapdragon 810 uses cat6 for its downloading, so why does the 820 have cat3? Hope someone would clarify the specs later but it's a free country......make sure you see your options for yourself first. Best way to judge
(1)Is it available from any local store other an Microsoft Store? I can't find it in ATT store.
(2) Are all the 950 XL sold in the market today Unlocked ?
(3) Is 32GB storage the only version available?
I am a Lumia 1520 user and I wanna go for an upgrade, however I'm confused about whether to go for this phone or wait some more time for HP Elite X3. I like the specs of HP Elite X3 after all it's powered by Snapdragon 820, has 4GB ram and it gonna sport high quality Bang and Olufsen audio system besides specs the most important thing is that it feels similar to my Lumia 1520 in terms of size, however I ain't sure about its camera and other specs. I would like some suggestions from y'all.
