    Hi Guys,

    So I'm looking at Upgrading to the 950 or the 950XL.
    Only thing is, which one.
    I had the 950 in hand and honestly, besides the ugly camera at the back compared to the XL, the 950 feels better.
    So I'm more trying to figure out if there is any reason that I would go for the XL over the 950?
    810 vs 808
    3000 mah vs 3300 mah
    5.2" vs 5.7"

    Those are the only differences that I know off.
    I don't think the bigger battery will make a difference, and I prefer the smaller screen because it handles better.

    Any reason for choosing the SnapDragon 810 over the 808? I know its 8 cores vs 6, but still.

    Doubt you will notice the difference between the 808 and 810. MAYBE if you use continuum. I went for the XL just because of the bigger screen and if you prefer the smaller one, I think you've already decided :)

    Great man thanks for the info. Yeah the 950 feels better in the hand and doesn't have that weird button placement that the XL has. So yeah, think I will go for that.
    I have a 930 currently.

    I think 90% of the difference between the 950 and the 950XL is the screen size. That's why I went with the 950 and I'm loving it! Hope you will, too :)

    have both. Using continuum I can't really see noticeable differences

    950
    smaller and more comfortable in the hand
    back camera is better covered. I have also Tudia slim merge and I love it. Cheap, sturdy, covers perfectly front/back (especially camera) and I like its design
    better volume button position

    950 xl
    slightly better cpu
    slightly bigger
    back camera lens is more exposed (there's no Tudia slim merge available for 950xl - using Incipio case at the moment but is not as beautiful as Tudia one and does not protect as much)

    Regular use likely not.

    But you will notice it in games, processing of pictures taken with camera and generating 3d map data, to name a few.
