Latest windows 1.4% all over world use, maybe it's hardware be latest but processor 810 snapdragon is always risky to anticipate. Dislodged Sony BB HTC all have shifted to media tech Taiwanese or Chinese chips. Had 800$ 1520 6" set all too good, but when time to change it begged for sale at100$ ONLY. Why it's windows! Just get a second hand at200 from market it's equally good in all respects include upgrade to win 10. Beaware😊
woskins, 22 Nov 2015no, you dont add them together, it does not have 8 cores running at 3.5. the samsung s6 does ... moreDude it got Qualcomm 810 octa core processor.. Octa means 8 ... Hexa means 6.. Watch the lumia 950xl videos.. 2 quad core process with 2 ghz n 1.5 ghz... A total of 3.5 ghz.. Also Samsung s6 uses exynos chipset..worst processor of its kind.. S6 failed the benchmark test against Asus zenfone 2 (4gb ram).. Also s6 don't have sd card support n small battery only 2600mah n only 16mp cam ..but 950xl has 2tb sd card support and 3340mah battery.. And 20mp Zeiss optics cam with pure view tech..

Guys; the phone is worth a wait.. An octa-core WP us al that u need to last for years without having to worry about getting a new device...i have been using a Lumia 1020 for an year and a half now... No issues at all... Ben able to get the best shots every time... Continuum is another extremely handy feature...3430 mah battery is like wow!!! Also since android and iOS stupid can be tin on wp10 ; the one drawback of a WP is now resolved;!!
Really looking forward to this phone! I've been using the HTC M8 Windows model since it came out and it is hands down the most productive phone I have ever used.
Price range its very high
not affordable for common people
if microsoft want to buy this phone
cost ll decrease
Anonymous, 20 Nov 2015MS are lame duck, windows 10 not 950xl in market. Two models and its a headache for them, whil... moreYa.. Dude.. U know y..??? Bcose Samsung sets starts to hang after 3months of use.. Ma frnd always complaints about his 6 months old Samsung set... These Samsung sets wont last like lumia.. Its called quality.. The only reason for the Samsung market share is the android apps n people with lack of knowledge about durability of smartphones... Am using Lumia 520 for the last 3yrs....played asphalt8.. Now upgraded to w 10 preview 10581 Still no hardware n software issues..
MS are lame duck, windows 10 not 950xl in market. Two models and its a headache for them, while Sammy releases every week a new model and in market. They had to adjust price buying Nokia into loss.. So already Windows 1% share will dwindle.
USB V3.1 type C means real high speed connectivity & charging, the way to go for all future smartphone & you get it here first, good job Microsoft.

Does this mean it has two set... moreYa dude 950xl uses an octa core core processor.. 2ghz quad +1.5ghz quad = 3.5ghz octa core processor.
Octa means 8..
"Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2 GHz Cortex-A57"
Does this mean it has two sets of Quad-Cores, equaling Eight Cores all together?
AnonD-340886, 13 Nov 2015Dude r u nuts..??? Its a flagship model... 950xl has 3.5ghz octa core Qualcomm chipset..3gb ra... moreyea you are right the compnay nokia or engineering of nokia lumia smartphone are smart and best quality compare to other as you sade specially the camera even they have 6mp compare 8 or 16 can beat nokia always the first of all harware camera software designed fast browsing etc....
Still not k market, only MS Store online, no comments.. Processor 810 used when 820 nxt on phones. Ms are lazy half hearted approach k launching W10. So much time waisted W9 would have to be upgraded. Average specs but by time it's on shelves become obsolete.
