    Went and picked it up at the store today. Interesting though... the one I ordered last night, MS already charged my card. I bet those waiting for Dec 11th get a nice surprise this year!
    surprise?

    I really like it. To be honest, I am glad this is plastic. I've never really been a fan of metal phones. Didn't like it on the iphone and didn't like it on the Nexus 6P. This is good plastic, feels good in the hand. Kind of like the soft touch plastic my old Nexus 5 had, or the Nexus 5X. The phone does get warm, more than I expected, but not hot though. Maybe a bit hotter than my Nexus 6P. Although, I think that's just the heatpipe doing a better job of removing the heat from the CPU and distributing it better. Not too bad at all. Things aren't quite as fluid and smooth like my 6P, but hopefully that's just Windows 10 being new. The Iris scanner works pretty much all the time after I took the time to improve the detection. Not as fast the fingerprint scanner on my 6P, but well its a loot cooler :). Camera is awesome. I feel my 6P's lowlight shots are, well brighter, but the 950XL does a better job of not blowing out the highlights.

    The only really annoying issue was the horrible squeaking noise when I press the back cover. Took care of that with a little bit of strategically located pieces of paper. :)

    Overall, it reminds me of my 640 XL, just faster, better and more refined. A bit more solid build would have been nice, but having the removable battery, dual sims, AND SD card is well worth the compromise to me. Pretty happy with the phone. I was afraid I would regret returning my 6P, but so far so good.

    I ordered two on 11/24 late at night, each with a different credit card. Both cards were charged the next morning (which I believe they do when they ship) even though I had a Dec 11 ships by date. I cancelled both orders on 11/25 because I walked in and bought one in store.

    still waiting for this to ship... talked to SEVERAL online chat reps today... 3 of them told me the same story - preparing tracking numbers... dont know what that means... when i asked... got the same canned response:
    we do this so your item is safe during transport
    what?! :?)
    hoping this thing ships soon... the credit card no longer shows a pending charge...but my account history shows a "in process" but also shows "coming soon" and "complete" go figure!

    Dec 1 my CC has a pending charge. Was told usual shipping on or before Dec 11. Only thing different was told was that a lot had been declined for fraud so charging earlier to give people time to update payment info.
