Dont want to bag Microsoft over the placement of the speaker but the 920 speaker placement was fantastic and 2 sets of grills for stereo HOWEVER if this is the extent of the compromise in getting this fantastic fully featured phone I most certainly wont complain!
Thank you Microsoft for this class leading phone and great OS ecosystem.
Android and Apple are hidebound with nowhere to go whereas MS are giving a complete mobile computer with full cross platform to desktop.....sucks to be behind the times with lagroid and fruitjuice.
All those complaining about the # of apps on the Windows store, have fallen into the trap by apple and google. I've used my 920 for years now, and gave never needed a million app. The store has plenty to choose from that are worth using. Claiming a superiority because of the # of apps is simply ridiculous. WIN 10 is great, and now with flagship phones as the 950 XL no one can criticize Microsoft
JF69, 10 Oct 2015The app store is a complete joke for WP, reason it is way behind ios and Android, WP's 3.5% ad... moreYes, the Windows App store is seriously lacking in really essential apps. For example there are no Catholic mass books or prayer apps whereas Android has a pretty good selection. If Microsoft really wants their phones to take off they'll need to do a major re-haul of the store!!! otherwise a lot of people will be just go back to either Android or Apple. The Win 10 OS is real good but....
No head phone enhancement and dolby digital plus. This is not in line with Nokia plan for the hybrid rank of phones. MS should not neglect these again. Nokia devices are cherished for providing quality musical sound.

And its got all the apps for that you need. If I wanted a toy I'd buy android or apple. It's got best features
willboyce, 10 Oct 2015I'm nearly sure it has a good app store. But only couple fart buttons and face changers and us... moreThe app store is a complete joke for WP, reason it is way behind ios and Android, WP's 3.5% adoption rate will tell you all you need to know. The WP OS is real nice but Microsoft has screwed the pooch with the lack of apps in their WP app store, developers are staying away from it like the plague.
Hebphone, 10 Oct 2015Wait a minute: what about the octa and hexacore?It says, Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 &
Quad-core 2 GHz Cortex-A57
This adds up to Octa-core.
If this OS Windows 10 phone loaded Lumia950xL works like a Computer, it will populariZe in future
JF69, 10 Oct 2015Without an app store, this phone is as good as dead, just like the entire WP platform, Microso... moreI'm nearly sure it has a good app store. But only couple fart buttons and face changers and useless apps
High Specs Hardware + Snappy Software
i can't believe it
well done Microsoft
Without an app store, this phone is as good as dead, just like the entire WP platform, Microsoft needs to get their act together.
Main review page says the 950 XL will have Gorilla Glass 3 and the 950 will have Gorilla Glass 4. The 'Hands On' page for the 950 says it'll have GG3 instead, and the specifications page for the 950 XL says it'll have GG4. What's real, here?
And now we wait if the rumors of Lumia 950/950XL are compatible with the Surface pen. If this is true, I'll be getting the 950XL that has a removable battery, memory expansion, runs Windows 10, and transforms into a PC through HDMI or wireless display connector.
Samsung would really be losing its hardcore users for the Note lineup. Hello, Microsoft.
Annexy, 09 Oct 2015Does Lumia 950 XL supports surface Pen?Nope. I think there keeping that for the surface phone next year. So rumour has it
I'm going to save up to get the XL. I've always been interested in the platform but never left Android.
