    I bought it cause android and iphone are foreign to me. I have a whole microsoft ecosystem. I need continuum and RDP. and well, just to support the platform.

    I am getting one sooner than later. Can't wait either. I'm over a year now going on 2 without a new phone. Cannot have that.

    ^^Steve, that kind of irresponsible behavior is not tolerated around here. Get your behind over to the Microsoft Store on the double.

    Besides from its camera....I really like the OS though it pains me to say that some of its function like Me Tile

    (Okay there's a notification center....but I don't know...I really like that app and I don't need 3rd party apps like sync.me to sync my contacts)

    It has great hardware specs but software wise not. I have to use my Zenfone for work because my company software doesn't support WP.

    MS has a long way 'till winmo10 will be usable as a stable OS...

    I had an upgrade and my 925 was feeling sluggish. I love wireless charging. I love the live tiles look. I have no major issues with the 950 or W10M. What i like best is my phone is a great phone first, and then can do other things. As long as it doesn't "force close" on every call, I'm good!

    Why? because after three years it's time for a change.
    Lumia 1520 is/was a beast.
    While not a fan of SD810, it can't help but be better than a three year dead design.
    Next time hoping for an Intel processor.
    Those Asus Zenfones fly from all indications.

    Didn't read all pages, sorry if redundant .

    #1 reason: The camera on the 950/XL is literally the best on the smartphone market right now, and it's not really close. Go here and choose the Lumia 950/XL and whatever other phones you want for proof. Really, it is a huge step up, and no one is talking about it. Photo Compare Tool - GSMArena.com

    Other reasons: The screen is incredible. Using this phone with Win10 on the desktop and with the Band 2 is a nice ecosystem, and is only getting better. Windows 10 Mobile was a mess at phone launch, but it is getting much better; the latest .71 build is faster, smoother, less buggy, and uses less battery than before, especially during idle. The first-party apps are getting better. There are still some annoying niggles, but not more so than you will find on other platforms.

    The main negative remains third-party app support ... hopefully UWP helps with this. Also, I miss the simple, consistent UI style from WP8.1 and before. This was a major selling point for me, but is being deprecated for a boring, unimaginative Android-style interface. Thankfully the Live Tiles remain the best phone UI (although I would like to see toggles added).

    I was three years with my Nokia Lumia 920. It was time to move on. I liked the 950XL for it's "empty" design but had hoped MS would have been smarter to have optional back plates for colors or styles available. But the 950XL also has great camera. I bought into the MS ecosystem back with my Xbox One and Lumia 920 and wanted to stay within the clean user experience. Yes, Windows 10 Mobile has had it's issues; e.g. Cortana acts up a little more, rare random restarts, rare screen hangs, but it has significantly reduced with updates. It's the journey not the destination.

    I bought XL for various reasons here are a few:
    - For me no phone os compares to windows mobile 10, in terms of presentation, charm, and in presenting information while at the same time looking awesome
    - I wanted the best possible camera on a phone, and nothing beats the one on the 950 XL
    - Was curious to try out continuum as even it's current iteration is great, not the mention it's potention in the future.
    - I was not worried in the least about the bugs since It was clear that they would be fixed sooner rather than latter in the whole paradigm of windows as a service (this has been true in practice, as the last couple of build versions are already very stable and, in my opinion, very fast and stable)

    not true... have you tried the latest builds? .107 runs fantastic with zero crashes so far and even the battery is good once again.

    My Lumia icon has been slipping of late and I don't expect it to get any firmware update or Windows 10 mobile, other than Insider Preview.

    I bought the 950 XL to get a better phone, which will be supported and noted by more providers. I actually called T-Mobile and the rep knew about the 950 XL and we even talked about it for a good half hour.

    At any rate, I wanted a new phone due to battery and WiFi issues, a better Windows 10 experience.
