    Have you just unboxed a Lumia 950? Is it so recent that you haven't stopped fiddling with it yet? Which variant did you get?

    Give us some quick thoughts on how you like your new device. What stands out right away as a major draw? What seems to be lacking?

    Are you happy you got it? Why? Why not?

    Remember, this thread is for quick impressions of the device. Please post your full reviews over here: [Real Users] My Lumia 950 Review We definitely want to see both: the quick blurbs here and in-depth user reviews in the other thread.

    Thank you for helping all the curious members and guests to get a glimpse of this device.

    I just set mine up, and I'm transfering my number etc over!

    First impression is it feels and looks like it's from the future, lol. It weighs a lot less than my iPhone5, and it's a LOT bigger! The screen looks fantastic, text looks amazing. Added my MS account and everything transferred over like magic, thanks to RumoredNow's awesome post giving me all the information I needed to prep my iPhone to have everything migrate seamlessly.

    I'll give more detailed opinions after I get a chance to use it for a bit.

    First impression was: wow! what a gorgeous display, coupled with: wow! this device feels *really* cheap in-hand. Tactile feedback on buttons is good, but a noticeable quality difference between these and the porcelain buttons used by Nokia on past devices. Haven't updated the software yet, but installed build is a little laggy in places. Anxious to give this guy a spin for the rest of the day, and to try out this camera...!

    I'm not entirely sure... it did go through a whole setup process, but I don't think I saw any kind of specific updating process. It did sit and think for about 3-4 minutes, but I think it was downloading and setting up apps.

    can someone who already has one answer my questions please
    - how do buttons feel ??? I am asking because the button are part of the cover now, which leads me to believe they will feel cheap and flimsy compared to ceramic buttons on my lumia 920
    -since you got your phone was it getting warm/hotish at any time?
    -is build quality of the phone good? I'm not asking about aesthetics, but purely build quality.
    -one of the most important questions, how is the single rear facing speaker ('face-palm!!!' 2015 flagship with this arrangement is not acceptable in my opinion)

    They feel very cheap (wobbling back and forth easily), especially as compared to the ceramic buttons on the 920.

    -since you got your phone was it getting warm/hotish at any time?
    Nope, not yet!

    -is build quality of the phone good? I'm not asking about aesthetics, but purely build quality.
    It's...okay. I would really be hesitant to call it flagship-level. Lots of plastic, dirt/dust gets trapped in odd placed (the embossed logos on the back, or edges of the display), and it feels in-hand similar to a device like the Moto E. Screen appears to have no oleophobic coating.

    -one of the most important questions, how is the single rear facing speaker ('face-palm!!!' 2015 flagship with this arrangement is not acceptable in my opinion)
    In all honesty, the speaker's not great.

    Having handled the XL in a store, I didn't notice a lot of difference. The buttons on the 920 are also part of the cover, main difference is that on the 920 the cover isn't (easily) removable.

    thanks for quick reply, a lot of first impression from Microsoft conference omitted all of these small things. I think when they come out in carphone warehouse in UK ill go play with one to see them in person, I was all excited for 950xl, but I cant't justify spending so much on flimsily build phone :-(, I think ill have to stay with 920 for little longer until it dies, then get cheap lumia after than until Panos do his magic with phone department (I guess another year of waiting)

    yes you are correct, but 'non removable' shell of lumia 920 gave it more rigidity, hence button can be tighhter and better feeing. But we must not forget mozo back cover, there is slight chance they can make things better.

    I think you should play with one yourself before coming to that conclusion, I don't know where these 'flimsy, cheap, plastic' comments are coming from. This phone feels like a million bucks IMO.

    Having used a 920 and a 1520, I can tell you that the buttons on the 920 felt a lot better than the ones on the 1520. The ones on the 1520 are almost flush with the body, which I hate, and they wobble a lot. I definitely thought that they felt really cheap. When I put a case on the 1520, those complains disappeared. Both phones accumulated dust in really unfortunate places. The 920 had it on the FFC and the 1520 on the earpiece.

    I did state that I will play with one once I get chance, probs early December. "cheap plastic" I heaven't used this description because I know Nokia used very good plastic, which makes me think Microsoft would use good plastic too. But using good materials doesn't always translate to good product, as an engineer I came across a lot products like that. You say 950 feels like million bucks, is that because you played with one or do you have one. Eeewing states that his 950 doesn't feel like premium device, ive read a lot of comment on other forum thread where people tried them in shop and had the same experience, but also a lot of positive comments like yours which leads me to believe either people have really high standard for these phone having played around with likes of Nexus 6P or Note 5 or even Iphone (i don't like apple but I do admit most of their products are manufactured well), or the second hypothesis is the quality control of whomever is manufacturing them is very poor.
