    People complaining about the buttons, just LOL at that. The buttons on my 950XL actually feel better than the ones on my 1520. Do I care they are not integrated into the device? NO actually I like that because if the button gets messed up I can just buy a new back cover. My sons iPhone 5S top power button is screwed up and there is nothing he can do about it.
    LOL about that one... The buttons ARE integrated into the device, just not the cheap plastic pieces to push them. So when they get messed up, you will have to buy a new device too (or repair it). And without double tap to wake... ;) But LOL again, the buttons on MY 1520 feel a lot more premium. But I was not complaining about that as long as I owned the 950 XL.

    Just because a product didn't ship with a feature (double tap to wake) doesn't mean it won't be ready in the near future. This is a new screen and maybe it was flaky so they left it out until they can polish it up

    This is a bad time of year to expect updates due to lots of people being off work towards the end of December. Your dock will ship in 8-12 weeks from the time you ordered it which you would have been aware of at the time, and you are not going to get any replacement for your stock cover creaking unfortunately.
    Let me get this straigt: The problem is not with the stock. The problem is, that i dont have the offers app, neither can i download it, neither does M$ know whats wrong. They are "working" on the issue, but no word since 10 days already...

    If they cant manage to get things sorted out until christmas, they should not have rushed a product on the market, that is not nearly finished. They just created bad press for themselves.

    And if anyone says that the 950XL buttons are better than a 1520... i believe it. But i can just laugh at M$ quality then. The 950XL buttons are the worst i ever had.

    Being an early adopter is always fun. I've had expected results with both of my 950xls. All of my issues are software related and I expect will be sorted out. My biggest complaint. The thing is too light and thin!

    These phones were for the fans. If you are a fan, you should have known what you are getting yourself into. Stop crying about how expensive it is. I have my frustrations with MS, but I'm being as patient as I can.

    If your phone has ridiculously bad battery life, runs hot, crashes ect... It's a bad phone, simple as that.
    The sad part is, there will be no "late adopters" either, if the early adopters have nothing but problems with the products. They will just see the inital reviews, wich are mostly bad, and the beta software, or the lots of complaint threads on the forums. This is simply a bad strategy for M$. If they'd had delayed the start by 1-2 months, that would have been only a small news wich everyone forgets.

    Weird my 1520 buttons were loose and rattled.

    My Lumia 950xl may be plastic buttons but they are firm and tight, no rattling.

    A month wouldn't have made a difference. I'm nearing a month of Lumia 950 ownership and problems persist despite updates. I still get reboots while taking pictures; it's only happened 3 times, but that's 3 times too many and updates haven't helped. People is double-listing certain accounts and those duplicates can't even be viewed, let alone deleted. And most frustratingly, connectivity issues with my Band persist. The best thing I can say is that system app crashes almost never happen anymore.

    I don't want to trivialize the effort that goes into fixing these issues. I imagine that Microsoft is prioritizing critical issues, but how bad were those that these persist?

    Hmm, definitely vice-versa on my models. On the 1520 the buttons stand out just slightly while you see the plastic bodies on the 950 XL in all of their pride. Only the misplaced power button of the 950 XL is lower than the volume buttons, which looks strange. But I found it OK as I said.

    Exactly. The phones were out to testers what 1 or 2 months already? Or even more.
    How could they not see all these quality flaws, and software issues? And if they did, why didnt M$ fix them for the release? At least the major bugs with the restarts, and bluetooth.
    Even if they implement double tap wake (wich isnt a deal breaking feature), or fix the continuum mouse bug, or fix the bluetooth bug, or fix the restarts, or get up better notification delivery system, or get out a better back cover in the second or 3rd production wave, no one will care anymore, because it wasnt in the phone, when they got reviewed. Its over. Bad news are already out.
    I really wanted this phone, but if this is the quality level M$ is OK with, i already doubt they next phone will be anything for me...

    Just printed my return label.

    All I wanted was a faster 1020. After 20 days, the XL lays on the shelf and I carry the 1020. Seldom lock my phone, do not care about Hello and yes a fingerprint reader could'. work better. Do not use a phone for music, cannot delete Groove. Wanted Hey Cortana, but without LTE, it does not work most of the time. Like my Visual VoiceMail, seems I cannot have that with the XL. I like wake on double tap, does not seem to be coming, who needs sleep on tap. All during the insider testing, many requested repeating notification for missed calls and messages, nope did not get that. Complaints by the hundreds over the Circles instead of Squares on the people app, MS did finally made the circles bigger.

    I am sure I will lose my $100 promo code that used, I had it from the two Surface Pros that I bought, but better that than the $595 I paid.

    Disappointed not mad.

    Apple and Google are so high up the ladder they can afford to slip a few rungs. Microsoft has just barely climbed on, so when they slip they risk falling off entirely.
