    So long as the specs are there. . . . But I do get how the leaks or renders of leaks look middling. And its not as if in aping the prior Lumia vibe, they're tapping in to the Gulf Stream of Commerce. They don't either scream "high end" or "flagship", at least not until you turn one on! But if you adjust for hype, many of the rivals' flagships are pretty much blah. Its hard, outside the reality distortion field, to keep rearranging the same elements to come up with something truly novel. This is true even for the pretty renders. I happen to rooting around in a cabinet drawer this morning and I picked up my old Blackberry Z10 (January 2013) and it looks pretty much like a lot of today's "cutting edge" renders.

    I'm not going to tell anyone to love the design when the 950 series is officially revealed, but the renders (like the majority of renders) are not coherent to 1:1 manufacturing dimensions. The implied internal density from a drawing isn't anything to go by, so we should temper our expectations on all fronts. This rendered concept isn't bad but it doesn't scream Lumia to me. I think the real phones will have some of the facial curves of the 640 XL but will have the rectangular profile of the 520, if not a touch sharper/sleeker.

    I love it but I gotta admit it looks exactly like an iPhone 5. That was the first thing I thought when I saw the concepts, not the icon/930. And not that it's a bad thing, at all really.

    I really hope MS reads all the feed back from the leaked renders and totally scraps the design and starts over. Keep the specs but change the design. I would wait to February or march for a really solid looking 950. But in reality if the final version looks exactly as it does ill probably still grab one, Icon's getting old. Just the truth.

    My thinking is this, so what it resembles some other shell because that's where the similarities end. If its running Windows 10 for Phones, its ride or die time. This is what I hope will be the design and it doesn't even matter to me if its built by Microsoft. If HTC or Sammy or some other builder could deliver a simular design, I'm interested. This looks professional, classy and would be a pleasure to own while running Windows 10 for Phones.

    I like it SOME, but I don't care for the metal band or rounded corners.Something seems a tab off with the camera as well. The whole thing gives off too much of an iPhone vibe for me to really buy into it.

    Even though it looks a bit more iPhone 5s than 930 to me, it looks hundreds of times better than the 'leaked' renders of the 950 and XL we've seen. This at least looks like a flagship and not a mid-tier phone. However, I think the general public would probably refer to it as the Microsoft iPhone. I think it's just the length; this render looks narrower than the 930 which is what makes it look more iphone-ish. Also, the colors of course :) The 930 was usually advertised in that awesome orange! If they stuck the 950 into a 930 exterior I'd consider it - as the 950 renders look, I don't plan on considering them.

    Yes, this is gorgeous. A friend of mine who is iphone 6 obsessed said it was really pretty but didn't think it was real as that doesn't seem like something MS would do. It has a sort of lumia 830 mixed with iphone look to it, but I love the lack of bezel on the sides. A man can only wish.

    Besides the physical buttons, yeah. Not sure how you can use a keyboard and mouse on your phone, then try to go back with a physical back, home, and search.
    Good software design would have the navigation bar pop up when a mouse is connected.

    Looking at it from the front, it reminds me at any white samsung phone.
    Looking at the back side, it reminds me at an iPhone 5.

    Personally, I hope the final design looks different from those two.
    I believe the lumia 930 had the best look from all windows phones.

    It looks like a Galaxy Note 4 which is to say it looks pretty good.

    I actually like this concept. The leaked ones just don't look that nice. This has a more flagship look. Kind of like the 830/930 with a bit more style. Can't wait to see the actual devices.

    Why doesn't anyone render these the way they'll look in the wild: With a giant plastic and rubber case on it, obliterating any semblance of itself?

    Yes! What we need to do is worry less about how MS makes it look and get some decent looking case options for Windows phones. If someone would make some killer cases, that would be great...

    It's nice and I like it more than the leaks of the 950/XL but this just looks like an HTC One. If anyone has a Twitter account, there's an account called phone designer who released a couple of concept designs (in March and July) that I liked. There was also another concept that I loved that someone released but I don't remember where I saw it but I saved the picture.

    Killer design! That's a real Nokia style! I don't like so much the first concepts. They are too trendy (read Iphone-ish)! I always will go with the heavy and robust Nokia design

    They have to get rid of the Microsoft's logo at front side. I think their logo has too much letters and not so pretty font. At the back cover i would go with the Surface logo style, minimalist and elegant, like Windows phones should be

    Hahaha! I guess you think Nokia designed the iPod Nano, then.

    This looks very similar to what I'd like in a phone! Really nice concept, however I'd like the screen to be centered, with on-screen buttons. It's hard to judge the bezels, wth the front panel being white, but I would like some bezels.
