    This is supposedly the new flag ship the 950XL replacing the 1520 ? I still hope Microsoft gives 1520 users Windows10 !

    Two things I like, two things I don't like about the 950XL.

    I don't like how larger the rear camera is; it should be equivalent to the size of the 1520 rear camera. I do like the removable battery & the higher resolution. I don't like the fact that the 810 is only 2.0ghz compared to the 800 which is 2.2ghz.

    If this is replacing the 1520 as the flag ship considering it is almost a 6 inch sized phone, how much ?
    Hm. The larger camera housing isn't really a problem, in my opinion. You're getting an extra LED flash, better OIS, and hopefully a larger camera sensor (all good things).
    Also, your qualms with the 810 are silly. The 810 is far more powerful than the 800 in every way. There's been talk of overheating but polycarbonate is way better at dealing with heat than aluminum or glass an Qualcomm has worked hard to solve these issues (also Microsoft presumably).

    For me, flagship phones need to be 'special'. The iPhone, Galaxy S6 and some others look and feel so much more premium.
    The SGS6 looks great but is still a bit meh when you actually hold it. But I agree with what you say this phone seems to have zero wow factor and it's something Microsoft really need.

    It emphasizes the greatness of the camera.
    That has to be one of the most stupid postings I've seen. Does your car have a big bubble on the top to emphasise how great the roof is?

    I'm not the only one who like the camera bump

    I'm pretty sure some others would agree with me that, the camera bump it's eye catching, cool looking, and let's people know they're dealing with a great camera. I personally like the way it looks. The camera bump on my 1520 looks cool to me. If you don't like camera bumps then that's just fine.

    Yes.
    Dodge Viper, two bumps on roof to wear helmets when you race.
    BMW M3, bump on hood for engine.
    Many muscle cars, bumps on hood for air intakes, larger engine.
    Many sports cars, wider *** for larger rear tires for more traction.

    I get asked all the time about my 1020 and its hump, and I tell people it's to pack serious camera hardware...if they ask more, I demonstrate.


    Some light reading for you on the "Power Bulge" https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_bulge

    Better doesn't tell me why it's better; not all that is new is always better.

    I love the bump.incidentally, not sure polycarbonate is better than metal when it comes to heat.

    anxiously waiting to get one of these. I cannot get another updgrade on my account as My package from telus no longer exists and I have stuff for my wife and I that would cost twice as much now. I was going to get two phones and buy the 950s when the kinks worked out, but I am just buying two out right for us now and skip the androids.

    Metal is a heat conductor. Polycarbonate is better at dispersing the heat and at releasing it.

    The Snapdragon 810 has a newer architecture, uses newer chip cores, is more efficient, and every benchmark says it's a substantial upgrade over the 805 (which is quite a bit more powerful than the 800) and that chip has a 2.7gHz clock speed. Don't believe the clock speeds have the final word, because there's a lot more to CPU's then raw power.

    Sorry zachary, you've got this backwards. Being a better heat conductor is exactly what makes metals better at transporting heat from the inside of the device to the outside... and dispersing/releasing it. The ability to disperse heat is the most important property of any heat sink. If what you say were true, heat sinks would all be made of plastic. They aren't. They are most often made of copper, or if price is an issue, aluminium.

    I guess I was wrong. Thanks for the information.

    Can you do a 950 render too?

    Count me in with the folks who poo pooed the leaked renders of the 950/XL. While I'm a fan of the use of the lumia Plastic, and don't mind the camera lens bulge, I just wish they had used a metal band like the 930, but more importantly, gotten rid of that, quintessentially iPhone, black smoked glass front fascia. Its time for smartphone designers to move beyond that paradigm.

    Here's Motorolas new 5.7 inch screen phone. It has a bigger screen than iphone 6 plus but they shaved so much bezel that it's a smaller phone. And this is why people complain about the Bezel on the new 950XL phone.

    The iPhone looks so beautiful in contrast sitting next to those two devices imo 👀. The Motorola device looks like a cross between the Nexus 6 & the Moto G (latest model)

    Personally, I don't care for the recent iPhones. I think the 6 series are their worst. I liked the 4 series, and thought that they looked great, I still do. The 6 series remind me of the original ones, and I never liked the corners. I find them to long. Thankfully, the 950xl has a shorter corner sweep.

    I can't stand the iPhone 6 Plus. It's literally a blown-up version of the iPhone 6 in every way. Meaning the bezels are also proportional (it at least seems that way).
