    Clove have rattled through their stock (of black anyway) already to fulfil pre-orders and a bit of a rush of new ones today, but are expecting a 2nd delivery tomorrow.

    They were surprisingly helpful when I phoned even called me back after they spoke with the supplier about availability

    Carphone Warehouse is now out of stock, even though when I ordered on Monday they claimed stock and next day delivery....they cannot say when they will get stock....
    That's annoying as it says they have white in stock on their website

    Hi all, I've been following the action but not yet posted.

    I just took a lunchtime trip to CPW Cambridge and they had both phones in.

    I had been leaning towards the 950, but the 950XL didn't feel that much bigger so I think it would be my phone of choice. However, I didn't pull the trigger and get one, because it didn't feel very high end. My current phone is a White 930 and despite being a bit heavy, I think its the nicest looking phone on the market. Build wise, the new ones feel a step back (I was envying the Sony Z5, and the Galaxy 6+ look and quality, but I wouldn't go back to android).

    I have been keeping an eye on the Mozo cases, but I'm waiting for reports on the plastic surround. If I were to go with a 950XL, I think I would prefer the mozo horizontal flip (like a book), but I read on their site that the phone is attached to the case with tape. Strange, particularly as the vertical flip case is pre attached to a new phone back, which makes much more sense.

    The brown phone back looks nice, but as I said, the 'metal' look and durability worry me a bit, plus I would also want another case to slip it onto (I put my naked 930 into an excellent Snakehive brown leather pull up case.

    Has anyone yet had a hands on experience with the Mozo cases?

    Honestly don't find my phone feels cheap in any way. I come from a HTC One M8 (Android version), and this new phone makes the HTC look about 10 years old. Not actually too fussed about getting a Mozo case at all any more, now I've been using it in my hands. The only reason I would consider getting one is for the extra grip that the rubber (or leather??) would give.

    I've received only praise for the look, feel and design of the thing :)

    Glad if feels good. Were you coming from a 930? I might be in a minority but I feel the 930 is a quality cut above the rest (I had a 920, 1020, 925 and 640). I loved the 730 quality too (possibly my favourite design) but I didn't own one as I always tended to have the flagship model.

    Came from a HTC One M8 which was one of the first all-aluminium body phones, supposedly looking amazing, but looks so ridiculously dated now.

    Haven't seen or felt the 930. I have had a 920 and it did feel solid but was rather bulky (and no removable back, so I felt a case was required on top, no fears with the 950 xl).

    The Mozo cases (the non-cover ones at least) have plastic sides but are brushed with metal so they look (and feel, for the most part) like metal. The cases with a cover seem less popular in general so haven't seen much about them.

    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.
    The processor is different of course - this has been shown in various reviews and first impressions that it does make a difference to how long the rich capture photos take to process and perhaps 4k videos are saved also...
    i dont think otherwise anyone has shown any tangible difference to the daily use.
    So, it will come down to how it feels in the hand for you.
    Dual sim phones - you can use one sim and leave the other... there may be an option to remove that extra sim symbol soon... but for now its there... if you dont use it - it wont be a detriment either.
    what phone are you using right now? what size screen?
    im going from a 4" to the 950XL... i dont want regret not getting the biggest screen and the fastest processor further down the line.

    I bought my phone, pre-ordered, when it was first announced on 11/16/15 that pre-orders were now open. I put in my order for the 950XL in black and then waited. The status never changed from "order in process", said it would ship by 11/25.....Never did. call MS and talked to a tech, worked my way up to highest level tech. Yesterday I was finally told that my order was LOST. LOST, I say, how? Said there was a glitch in system, we went through the steps to place a new order and have it shipped over night for my troubles......guess what I was told? yep! Got it right. OUT-OF-STOCK!!!! Not happy right now. Come on MS, get new phones out to us, we are waiting. Anyone else in same boat?

    Well still no news or update from Argos but the 950 from CPW arrived just in time before I left work. Dealing with CPW (even when there was an order issue to a typo my end) has been a dream compared to Argo$.

    Like a lot of people have said on here it is a disgrace that Argo$ have charged us even though they quite frankly seem to have no clue when they will get any XL's in stock.

    Well. After I cancelled my order 2 days ago... It turned up today!! Phoned them up and they said the supplier probably didnt look at their emails.. Great! Thanks...

    Gotta phone the supplier tomorrow and get them to collect it... Would have refused delivery if it wasnt delivered to a neighbour and wasnt in a completely unbranded box!!!

    In reference to US Microsoft stores playing the waiting game...

    After having to change my delivery method, they made me cancel my order. I then miraculously found another to order from MS this Monday. I bought the expedited shipping because who wants to wait. Then today I noticed a change on my order status to the dreaded "Back-ordered."

    I went the rounds and was finally put in contact with a customer service rep who repeatedly assured me that said phone would be shipped out ON Dec 11th.

    Perhaps they waited to update all the phones with .29 or they are just awful at math.

    Well at least that means they are starting to ship, but it is just further proof of how shocking they have been all round. If you don't mind could I ask what date you ordered yours with Argo$?
