    I will say this... the phone is nice. It's not as nice as I thought it would be, or would like it to be. Build quality is about on par with my 640XL. Nowhere near the quality of new Android or iPhones.

    Also... the phone gets HOT. I didn't even restore a backup, and just letting it sync my contacts, it's very warm to the touch.

    We'll see how it plays out once I have some time with it.

    Yeah, you can't really judge heat at initial setup with all the required network activity of restores, app updates, etc. Best to let it settle down a couple of days.

    Just as another noteworthy piece of information. I've had the phone crash twice just trying to choose a ringtone. Also, the speaker sucks.

    I'm really hoping for better out of this device. Unfortunately I have been spoiled on the overall experience of a device by using an iPhone 6 and 6S since July. Been a WP guy since the old WM days.

    For those who bought the AT&T locked version, I am interested in understanding what modifications AT&T has applied to the Lumia 950. I assume their standard bloatware and carrier lock - anything else? I would prefer an unlocked one, but someone else pays my bill and I will take what I can get. :) I'll be coming from the Lumia 920, which has been a great phone for me.
    There is an AT&T logo when the phone boots, and a half a dozen pre-installed apps.

    ALSO - to those who have received the phone....

    which did you buy? ATT or unlocked or other country variant?
    what is the model number?

    You can find the e-label from:
    Settings / extras+info.

    I am having some bad feelings. People who have 950's on reddit are having crashing also. Maybe the stores not having theirs in yet makes me better off.

    If you've received one, please post the model number and product code.

    They are found on the label inside. Model RM-xxxx and product code 059xxxx

    Will be useful for searching, thanks!

    The case pops off. there is a little opening at the bottom of the phone where you slip your nail; into it and pop it off.

    Mine has been delivered at my in law's house in Boston. Too bad I'm half way across the country. I fly out on Friday and won't get it until I get in around 8pm. Hoping there are plenty of user reviews by then.

    Those of you who have your phones already, enjoy them!

    just imagine, if we knew they were shipping yesterday, everyone would have planned a bit better :)

    Lol I figured that from the notch on the bottom but I'm kind of heavy handed and didn't want to crack it in half trying to find out. Found it through some Googling (ehem Binging), thanks.

    Mine too seems to be getting hot just sitting on the desk. Weak cell signal? I dunno. It is hot though.

    So, unless I'm missing something, there's no double tap to wake, I can't find the setting for Hey Cortana, and the deal breaker for me is that the phone does not support hands free voice control in my 2015 Honda CR-V.

    This sucks.

    Same here. I also can't get my photos to upload to OneDrive, searching settings is not working properly, VVM is not working, and my on-screen buttons tend to disappear randomly leaving me with no way to navigate out of certain screens.

    I'm sure all of that is fixable, but it's annoying right now!

    I have to have voice control in the car. Unfortunately I can't look past not having that. The others I can wait for.

    Turned off Glance - temp dropped drastically. May be coincidence, but leaving it off for now to see.
