    I am not sure if Amazon UK is correct in shipping time but since they deliver to the US I ordered my Mozo 950 XL black cover from them. Came out to 39.9 pounds which was only $61 USD instead of $71 USD if I ordered from Mozo directly. Worth checking out if you are in the US looking to import this cover.

    I actually don't like leather backs. I'd rather prefer them to offer regular polycarbonate backs with different colors and different frames. Just like the red/gold option, it looked great as a tiny pic, but with actual close up of the final design that red leather doesn't really spark my interest.

    Same here. Leather shouldn't be on a phone. It's a device, not a car seat. And, while red had me at least consider it, even in leather, the color combo of red/gold is simply off putting and horrid. Extremely tacky looking. It's a shame they don't have red/silver.

    I'm going to pass on this and stick with the black and logo. The branding and looks mean more to me than the feel. Unless they start offering something better like carbon fiber, i'm out.

    Pre-ordered the natural leather back with the stitching. Pre-ordered the 950 XL at my local MSFT store in white.

    A premium phone I leather makes sense to me. When you are paying $700 USD for a device, a little premium options can't hurt. It's why I like the HTC phones as well with the aluminum finish.

    For something that you hold for quite some time each day leather feels good, really good.

    Is anyone else stalking Mozo waiting for their 950XL covers to come back into stock? By the time I really considered getting one, they were already mostly sold out.

    I'm just curious whether there's anyone else like me who is anxiously waiting to pick up one of these back covers.

    Not stalking Mozo. I pre-ordered from Mozo (#5xx) the first day. But I cancelled that order. Later I found a place in the US and pre-ordered from them due to a slightly lower price for the case but mostly due to a huge difference in tax and shipping. A bonus was they expected their shipment from Mozo within a week. Although I guess that's not really a bonus if the phones arrive even later.

    Plus leather is even more flameproof than polycarbonate. You almost never see a cow on fire (with the exception of the start of Mars Attacks).

    Until they actually come thru, I don't want someone blaming me for delays so won't mention the name until I have it in my hands BUT if you Google (not my first search choice) Mozo Lumia 950XL and click on "shop", you should see it. And if you want more than one, compare shipping between individual orders and multiple. You can order one for $1.99 (USPS) shipping, but two bumps the shipping to $8 with UPS because I guess two won't fit in an envelope.

    Wish they had a black w/gold trim, I'm curious if the leather back is thicker then the others?? Keeping it slim as possible is always my preference.. As for screen protectors with my Note 4 I tried the Zagg glass protector which did a great job BUT I wonder if Gorilla glass 4 will even need a protector??

    All the Mozo 950XL back covers are leather. So I doubt the cognac ones with the stitching are any thicker than how much the thread sticks out. I wouldn't be very surprised if the threads are even fake and are just stamped into the leather like the bumps are in the black and white covers. If the stitching was "real" I would expect a different price. But who knows? Maybe they eat any difference (dumb) or something else offsets the cost of stitching.

    Found some more Mozo products for the 950line at a Swedish retailers homepage, stuff that isn't even on Mozo's own store yet! For example these leather flip covers! All items are listed as coming soon. (BTW this is a serious dealer so these are not Chinese knock-offs)

    It would appear that these Mozo cases are available for pre-order again after having been "sold out" for a couple weeks. Delivery starts mid-November. I still really want that brown one. Looks badass.

    I pre-ordered the white 950 XL and just pre-ordered the black leather Mozo back cover. The leather cover cost $71.95 including shipping. Mozo says they will start shipping November 16. The black leather cover cover reminds me of a retro camera.
    Am I wrong in saying the white 950XL is actually just the black phone with a white back cover?? I look at MS's site and googled White 950XL and every photo shows a black faced phone w/white back cover unlike my old white Note 4 which was all white front and back...

    I'm almost positive that's the case (pardon the pun). The buttons are metallic on both and there are no external trays. The only thing different is the one piece back/sides which is 100% replaceable.

    Could Otterbox actually design a case for this that actually keeps it safe from hazard falls? I've read nothing but disappointing reports from their latest accessories.

    When you say "their latest accessories" who do you mean Microsoft, Otterbox, Mozo, someone else? Just want to be sure. TIA

    I've been reading overwhelmingly negative reports of Otterbox Defenders for the iPhone and Galaxy series. In a sense that they do not even prevent breakage from hip-height drops onto the back and not the face...

    Sorry if this is off-topic.

    You are correct. The front of the phone is black and the rear cover comes in either black or white.

    Last night I preordered the Brown Mozo cover from Mozo directly. They are saying it will ship by Nov. 16 via UPS. I even received an order # from them.
    Will wait and see.

    I am starting to wonder if phone is going to be released either the 10th or 17th due to 2 people saying the 16th on the cases. Microsoft usually does Tuesday releases on things.

    My fingers are crossed that the Nov 16th IS the date for AT&T version(told to me my MS Salesperson), wish it was the unlocked version but if they are correct the unlocked ver. could be weeks to a month later.. I just can't wait that long ;)

    Yeah I just pre-ordered my 950XL in white on the Amazon store, and ordered a Mozo case to go with it - there's several new versions (red leather and silver trim, for example, only downside is the release date is 12th Dec. I'm interested to see if that date shifts to be 3rd Dec like the MS Store.
