    I ordered a White 950 XL from buymobiles.net on 02/12/2015 - still waiting and receiving regular emails with a "stock update" stating that the item is still out of stock
    Oh the difference. Regular emails! Stock updates! Argos seem happy with unanswered calls, ignored tweets and facebook DMs and throwing us the odd lie.

    FYI. One of the first things I did was order a Display Dock. They are still available, and available on the CPW bought phone (Not just Microsoft bought ones :))
    I tried all day yesterday and this morning but it was showing Out of Stock constantly. Checked on the off chance earlier this afternoon and it went through fine.

    both black and white have been in and out for a week or so... they either show "add to cart" or they will show "email when available"
    I was able to add the white to cart yesterday but then a short while later it said my cart was empty...
    nothing new, unfortunately...

    i did get on the phone yesterday and was told initially i would get tracking numbers by the end of yesterday, then she said, let me double check and then she came back and said sometime this week... :(

    So after another few phone calls with Argos and Exertis, they now say that I could expect the phone on Friday. I'm still hesitant to trust them on this though.
    This morning, I put an order in with CPW to see if I'd get it sooner, but got an email saying they were backordered (I chose the black model). Phoned them 10 minutes ago to change to the white model which showed as in stock online...I'm now getting my phone tomorrow! Awesome.

    Don't really care about the case colour for now, as I'll be getting a Mozo cover at some point. I just really want the phone!

    Argos just tweeted me to ask if I could give them my address and order number they'd get someone to look into it! I, with considerable restraint, pointed out that if the scrolled up a bit they'd see the details I gave them when this started 6 days ago.

    I refuse to cave in and go somewhere else for several reasons a) I'm like a bloody minded pitbull - when I latch on, I ain't letting go b) I've had a word with myself and, in all honesty, I'm in no real hurry and c) I need the 6 months to pay for the damn thing ;)

    They have a local US number on site, ask them, I had ordered my Lumia 1520 through them and they had shipped via DHL in 3-4 days to Australia.

    Can somebody give some advice. Is there any real and/or noticeable difference between the 950 and xl like performance wise and battery life wise. I'm in a bind on which phone to get. I like the bigger screen of the xl but hate the idea of a dual sim phone.

    Just ordered my white 950XL through CPW in stock and delivery tomorrow, so happy and they are also the cheapest in the UK.
    I wonder if they had a special agreement with Microsoft?

    When Microsoft said they wanted to get phones into the hands of as many fans as possible what they meant was 'fans' who bought FROM THE CORRECT OUTLETS as dictated by them and didn't exercise their right to buy from any other resellers. Bad consumers.

    Well my 950xl is still in an Argos limbo (seriously can't believe how shocking they are) but my 950 'should' be here today. Though looking at my due time by the time it arrives I will have already left work :( Come on DPD please be early.

    so finally i did get a call from Microsoft India since i was one of the first people to prebook the 950xl in my city.
    however i wasn't impressed as i should have been. i din have the same excitement as i had when i first went to see my last phone the Nokia 1020 ,test unit.
    Firstly the phone looks identical like the 640XL , now don't call me cribby but if i am shelling out Rs.49,999/- i least would want the phone to look somewhat flagship grade. Yes it has its advantages like the removable back , dual sim (indian variant ) and the micro SD card slot , but so does my current handset the LG G4 which i picked up for the time being waiting eagerly for the 950xl.
    secondly, i was extremely disappointed to see the loading resuming screen. yes its still there and its quite sad that even with the best of the chipsets and with three gigs of ram this issue is still there specially on the start screen when phone is left idle for long and when switching apps. Now before i get comments like " Ive barely spent time with the phone" , since i know the manager of the Microsoft store in my city i was lucky enough to have the handset for a few hours of use before i had to return their demo unit.
    Microsoft have done a brilliant job however in keeping the Snapdragon 810 heating issues at bay with the liquid cooling , even after intensive use i never found the phone to heat up , yes it does get warm but never so much that i had to stop using the handset so i would give the phone at least that.
    The screen is brilliant , no complains whatsoever , yes i wished it was slightly curved (not Samsung s6 edge curved but more like the previous lumians curved at the edges). Besides that superb viewing angles, deep blacks , punchy colors all what you would expect from a QHD screen , it feels at par with the QHD screen of the LG G4 .
    The camera is marvelous, however if it had more richer options in manual controls( greater control over shutter speed duration mainly, 4seconds just doesn't cut it anymore honestly) i would be sold and honestly the software is to be blamed . While some pictures appear crisp and sharp some appear washed out .
    lastly the pricing .
    The 950 is priced at RS.43,000/- while the 950 XL is priced at Rs.49,990/- which is quite disappointing when you compare the same with the other flagships. My LG G4 costed me Rs.33,500/- which has identical specs to the Lumia 950 and i really don't see why there is such a price difference.

    will i pick up one of these? No. Why? cause these phones just don't make the cut that the lumians did in the past for me and i have always been a windows fan starting with the lumia 610 to the 720 and finally the 1020 and i thoroughly miss windows phones mainly due to the no nonsense right to the point behavior of the OS which android CANNOT provide , but i don't see myself investing in the 950 twins anytime soon .

    Finally got through to Argos to cancel on third time of trying, first time gave up after 30 mins, second time got through but call went dead, third time only 12 mins to get through. I have cancelled, and as but as others of said they have to cancel with their supplier before they can process my refund. I tried to get an assurance that I would be contacted when it was going through but I got the impression that for these types of orders it's unlikely I will hear, so I am probably going to have to call one more time.

    The bosses at Argos should be made to listen to 'your call is important to us' on loop for 8 hours a day until they realise the best way of showing that is to reduce the need for calls and speed up the answering of them. At the moment the one thing I am certain of is my call isn't important to them...
