    My trusty Nokia Lumia 1520 has served me well since launch. But now, with a cracked screen and a dying battery I am in need of an upgrade. I see prices of the Lumia 950 xl dropping and I am wondering if the OS is still viable? And even if it is, would be be best to get this model or an alternative? Or even wait for the fabled Surface Phone?

    I have the 1520 also and have just bought a 950xl. Staying with MS Phone OS makes you wonder about the future but I does what I need it to do and does it well.

    At the prices they are at for now, they are a great deal. The big thing for me has been fixed because MS has made most of their core apps available for Android.

    I think that Windows for phones is going to be niche, like BlackBerry.

    the 950xl is good and so is the 950. It really depends on your use case. If you already were using windows 10 mobile on your 1520, then the 950 will feel like a faster and better phone for your needs
