    Lack of a dedicated camera button, which is a deal breaker for me and I'm not sure if it has a replaceable battery.

    Otherwise bravo this is probably the most powerful cell phone in the world.

    No replaceable battery, which is kind of surprising for an enterprise phone. OTOH, thin as hell.

    Is it lighter than the 950XL?

    Considering this is targeted to enterprise im not sure they considered a dedicated camera button a necessity.

    Well for me as a consumer no dedicated camera button is a deal breaker, also no removable battery and no glance screen is a bummer. They obviously put alot of thought into it and packed it with the best spec's possible but these omissions mean I'm not going to sell my 950 for it.

    I'm in IT so my phone does double duty for personal and business use and I would have jumped at it had it not had these omissions.

    I guess the waterproofing had a lot to do with removable battery. Looks like a massive bat anyway, im excited by this, the bar has been well and truly raised, lets see what thier competitors do in this space :)

    It looks like it doesn't have OIS, which would be unfortunate.

    Also it's either dual SIM or SIM + microSD, not dual SIM + microSD like the 950XL. Not much of a problem given the 64GB internal, but still good to know for dual SIM users.

    And finally it's a bit on the heavy side. 195g compared to 165g for the 950XL. Much bigger battery though.

    (and mentioned above, no camera button, no glance screen)

    The 4150 mAh battery remedies that in my mind.

    no its 195g, better than the 1520 though by like an ounce.

    edit: not quite an ounce, 1520 measures in at 209g.

    the only problems I see is the lack of camera button, and lack of a real camera. There is no cameras out there that can beat pureview. That's why I am keeping my 1020.

    Glance is Lumia specific, unless Microsoft plans to expand it. And I'm not to worried about glance (though I do like it) if there is a notification LED.

    This phone is astonishing primarily due to the fact it's packing so much and is still really thin.

    The only things I would nit pick about it is the lack of a camera button and a ir blaster.

    Then again none of these are really important for the enterprise sector.

    Looking forward to the indepth review, this really has the raised the bar in my opinion.

    Looks like a great option. I will be seeking to upgrade my 1520 at some point but have held off thus far. Perhaps this will be the phone to cause me to jump!

    it is more than a bummer...it is a necessity to have those feature....Imagine the cost of replacing that battery

    All batteries lose charge over time so a replaceable battery would fix that if you owned the phone for a few years.

    That's a good catch. No mention of ois.

    Nope. That is why I stick to the MS offerings. That HP phone is SICK.....its a great push forward for the platform. But for people like myself who travel with my phone a lot, and use it for capturing images etc while on adventures or what not....its not a winner. However, what it's aimed at, BULLSEYE!

    The battery doesn't bother me so much as I haven't needed to replace a battery in 10 or 15 years. I do like the dedicated camera button and would miss it, but remember who this phone is targeted to....enterprise customers. A dedicated camera button isn't going to be a huge demand from business customers.
