Great phone, shame about the initial price.
I suspect many of us will wait for it to come down in price before getting one.
myksy, 21 Oct 2015i was planning to get the lg v10, but after seeing that website, it made me think again. guess... moreSpot on with the expandable memory capability. I think it's crazy selling the same device with different memory capabilities. The price difference is huge... Crazy, I tell you!
Gargantua, 21 Oct 2015it would be nice if Microsoft using Intel Atom SoC or Exynos.Exynos chipset is not good as intel atom and Qualcomm...
Samsung s6 uses this exynos processor which didn't withstand against the intel atom powered zenfone 2 (4gb) on the gaming benchmark..
This phone looks very promising. App hounds will pass but I only use a few so having thousands of duplicative apps to choose from does not impress me, nor being inundated with excessive permissions demanded for no reason by apps. I especially like that you can buy direct and pass up the carrier bloat ware.
omegas, 17 Oct 2015AMAZING CAMERA! http://blogs.windows.com/devices/2015/10/15/camera-magic-on-microsoft-lumia... morei was planning to get the lg v10, but after seeing that website, it made me think again. guess il be buying the 950xl. but il have to check again some reviews and camera samples first. plus+ for the removable battery and micro sd card. another plus+ for 950xl if it can burn dvds and have movie maker and attach a projector =) BIG plus+ if it has windows explorer like the ones on the computer! one small windows 10 or 7 computer at the palm of my hand!
Wow, excellent job done by Microsoft after a long long journey. I will surely buy, once the price become more affordable reaching sub-$400.

A 6.7mp Zeiss optics Cam of lumia 730 can surly beat 8mp of Sony m2...i did the comparison with ma brothers m2 and.. The pics taken on Lumia 730 was super.. Its not about the size Dude..its the image capturing capability of the lens which makes the image quality

FYI, the Snapdragon 810 used to have the heating issues but it has already been resolved in the latter production of the CPU that is why a lot of OEMs still have it under the hood of their phones. Another thing why heating issues will be avoided is because of the OS of this phone, it is not Android, it is not demanding and it has liquid cooling system that will cool the phone down. There's also a couple of back casings available at Mozo that are made out of real leather on the back and steel frame on the edges that can resolve your issue about the backing of this device.
Ahmad Basem Khd, 18 Oct 2015Now this is something..
Light system with huge processor..
Best camera on any phone ever..
... moreSorry, but a fail Snapdragon 810 processor.
On top of that a plastic/polycarbonate body for a top-high-end phone (price)??
This is so 2014.
Other specs are ok, but than there is the lack of enough apps like for the iPhone and Android.
There is no gain in having the phone to use like a laptop.
You still have to plug it in a wall socket to be alble to use it for more than 3 hours though.
I'll stick to my laptop with Win10 ;-)
