    Hi,

    I have asked this question in the main forum but no answers so thought someone here can help. Where have you guys found is the cheapest place to buy the 950 XL in Australia/Sydney?

    Optus seems to be the cheapest at $960, also from what I could find out yesterday the free display dock offer ends today 28/02.

    Will I get the free display dock offer in the Lumia app with a 950 XL from Optus?

    Answering my own question.. lol, just got a 950 XL priced matched Optus price in the Microsoft store in Sydney. ☺

    The free dock offer actually ends on 31/03 unlike Optus who say the 29/02.

    Yep zei20t mines an Optus 950XL. The phone seems to be running very smoothly and battery life does indeed appear to be better. So far so good.

    Hi, I purchased my 950XL at MS store Sydney on Sun 28/02 and was told the free dock offer was on until 31/03. I have only just been able to access the Lumia Offers app as had to wait for a new SIM and only have the Office 365 offer available.

    I have emailed my receipt to the lumiapromotions email address, is there anything else I should try to see if the offer appears?

    Presume I don't need to select US as my region as the offer is on in Australia.

    Thanks

    Picked one up from Harvey Norman yesterday, only one in Newcastle (for them) according to their inventory. I've got limited net access and data allowance at the moment so it's not set up how I want it just yet, but it's enough for me to use. Still have a lot of updates to do as well. From the little time I've had with it I'm liking it a lot. Camera works well, although I've only taken a couple of quick snaps to test it out. Windows Hello works great, no trouble with it for me. Screen is very nice, and the OS runs very well on the hardware. Snappy and no loading/resuming screens.
    The phone feels very nice, I picked this up to replace an iPhone 6+ and I don't think it feels cheap after a year with the metal bodied iPhone. It's not Galaxy S2-5 thin, cheap feeling plastic that's for sure.
    I checked out apps before getting the phone (have had a 930 and 640XL in the past so already had an idea), and my most used ones are there in some form. The ones missing are ones I don't use often so won't miss them. Lost a couple of games, but picked up a few good ones, such as Siegefall and Plague inc (not much to this game but it's addictive). I've got an iPad so can still use the games/apps at home, so not a total loss. Hopefully the iOS bridge is a success and we see more apps come across, if universal apps aren't made.

    Only issue I've come across so far is not being able to download the Australian keyboard (known issue), hopefully that's fixed soon. Double tap to wake would be nice and is said to be getting added sometime.
    No free dock in the Lumia offers app, which is a bit of a letdown considering I bought the phone outright. Apparently Optus customers get the dock free, on top of the Xbox, lucky buggers. I would have jumped on the deal but unfortunately Optus service where we have just moved to is terrible. My wife is with them and she hates it.

    Overall I'm happy. For the way I use my phones it will cover my needs nicely. I also have a Surface 3 and Xbox One, so that's a couple of other reasons I went for the Lumia and decided to give the iPhone a break. Whether that's temporary or permanent I'll see over the next few months with the 950XL.

    The comments from people saying the firmware update improved things significantly is what pushed me to take the plunge. Yeah, there are the Surface phone rumours, but that's still a ways off even if they do pan out, and who knows how much it'll be and whether there will be much carrier support here even if we do get it? I needed a new phone now, so buying one outright was my best option. So, after a lot of umming and ahhing, I plonked down the cash for one on Expansys. I know grey market imports are a bit controversial, but a sale is a sale, right?

    Just need to play the waiting game now, hopefully it arrives by Friday. Will do a follow up post then :)

    be wary of the latest redstone builds. I had no problems, then i had nothing but problems.

    im back on production builds now, ill wait a few more redstone builds before i upgrade again.

    I had major problems on the first redstone two redstone builds. But the 14283 really did the trick. Only prob is the known bug that affects syncing with ms band 2.

    I was on redstone build .1004 and it worked fairly well except for reading out messages on Bluetooth. I went back to production running .164 and the latest firmware. Everything is running quite well. Am very happy with it.

    Realism - the initial excitement period has worn off and now you're using it less with less screen-on time. lol.
