    Be careful taking off the back, if you touch near the USB-c port you can bend it, I bent it back but still it shouldn't be that easy to bend.

    Also, as I posted elsewhere here is a picture of behind the battery confirming a US phone from Microsoft Online with dual-SIM.

    Did you take it off with the port or the notch?

    Question...tried plugging my type C cable into a normal USB port on my computer. Do I need a special adapter or something ?

    No, but it charges very slowly compared to a wall charger.

    The notch, but I touched the port opening and it bent.
    Also I noticed both of my cases when trying to take them off they pull the whole back off.

    I could definitely see a tight case potentially pulling off the back. And I could see how the usb c port is vulnerable when the back is off. Thankfully the backs won't be off for long enough for it to be an huge issue. You aren't going to irreparably bend the port through normal use.

    Can someone put it side by side with a 920?
    I can do that tonight when I get home.

    Microsoft Complete is the best option if you can get it.

    Will let you know what I think once everything is up and running.

    Make sure you're on wifi initially... You're going to chew up a bunch of data doing app downloads and updates.

    they are not visible right now... Pino (Here maps VP) said they are working through some technical issues that are now allowing them to show up in the Windows 10 Mobile store... so that means they are working on it...
    I have come to prefer the windows map app recently - still uses Here backend for the map data, but the app is better i think... esp that 3D and streetside view

    Thanks, though it looks like that only applies to the Surface product line.

    Most phones and laptops and tablets available from the Microsoft Store are eligible for Complete, including flagship Lumias. I had complete on my 1020 and on my 1520. Others have confirmed they've gotten Complete for their Lumia 950 XLs.

    Unfortunately, I think you have to go in-store to register for Complete. That, or call Microsoft Customer Service and pray.

    is it possible to replace the cable on the wall charger or maybe use a europen wall charger and to plug in the TYPE C data cable ?

    Nope... I'd be surpised if the European versions of the phone don't come with a plug that fits the country it's sold in.

    it will be sold with the right wall charger but if I buy it from the US it Is a little bit cheaper...(buying it SIM FREE)
    in Europe if you be the 950xl in France you get the Display Dock and the DT-904 (wireless charger)

    it is a great phone specs wish but is it a good phone for a first time WP user (to start of with the BEST?)

    For those that have their XL's (and have owned a 1520), can you tell me how the external speaker compares? The 1520 speaker is loud, which is something I appreciate.

    As well, curious how good the vibrate function is. Last couple Lumia's I've owned had very weak vibe functions so I can never feel my phone ringing in my pocket.

    I have to say that the USB-C port sticking out looks like its asking for trouble when you take the case plastic off. I'll take a close look at that when I go to the store.
