    I was thinking the exact same thing. Aren't they literally the same size?
    Nope, but close:

    Lumia 640 dimensions:
    141.3 x 72.2 x 8.8 mm (5.56 x 2.84 x 0.35 in)

    Lumia 950 dimensions:
    145 x 73.2 x 8.2 mm (5.71 x 2.88 x 0.32 in)

    Still impressive that they fit a 5.2" screen in pretty much the same size body as a 640 with a 5" screen.

    Is the 950 on the left? How is it smaller than the 640? GSM arena has the 950 being bigger?

    EDIT: Even the MS site has the 950 being bigger?

    That's a 640 XL and not a 640.

    Correct, it's a 640XL. The 640 is just a little larger than the 830. And the 950 is just a smidge larger than the 640. But both are dwarfed by the 640XL.

    A few folks asked for this in an earlier thread of mine, so here are some unboxing photos of the Lumia 950.
    It looks like the continum dock came with the phone in the box.

    not the best thats for sure - no different than the Lumia 520 i got mine in....
    I bought my 520 at launch and it came in a box, now they come in that stupid saucer thing that's impossible to open without a blowtorch..

    All that's included in the box is the phone, battery, charger, USB cable, and documentation.

    a cool website i came across last week or so, cant remember who pointed to it, but allows you to quickly compare "ACTUAL" sizes of phones on your screen - all you have to do is a quick calibration against either your existing phone or a credit card/driving license against a template on the screen and then pick some phones...
    you can then put them side by side or on top of each other...
    very cool - give it a try...
    i had a look at a 640XL at an ATT store last night, they didnt have the 950 in store (some excuse about not being a big enough store, even though they were a corporate store and had the 640XL!), so i got an idea of how big it was in my hand and can with this tool see how the 950XL compares....

    How is the balance of the phone? That eccentric battery placement is making me nervous.

    What saucer thing? Pics?
    I REALLY love the old thick cardboard Nokia boxes. Too bad Microsoft gave up on those...

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. Everything I've read suggests that's it's really comfortable in the hands, more so than the XL. I think the balance will be just fine.

    It feels fine in the hand, if not a little cheap and plasticy. Balance is pretty even. Nothing to worry about.

    My 920 with Windows 10 sometimes works a bit slow...

    Is it an issue with 950 too?
