    After weeks of research and trying various phones including BlackBerry PRIV, finally decided on the lumia 950. Went to MS store today to see the demo and I was pleasantly surprised to see the quality of the phone an it's beautiful display. Tonight surprise the guy said it's available right now to buy. So ended up buying one
    Sitting in the box still. Hav to go out tonight. Will set it up later and post my comments.

    Since it seems that all Canadian pre-orders are delayed I was wondering if the Phone you got is made for the Canadian market? Meaning English-French packaging and manuals.

    I can only think of that being the reason those devices are withheld, FCC etc. already approved them and since the 950XL is being shipped, doubt anything regarding charger is not good...

    Except of course they are upgrading the devices for Canada with Gorilla Glas 4 instead of 3 that is sold in the united states :)

    What? Where did you hear that they are updating the Canadian 950 with gg4? That doesn't make sense, why would they even do that? There would be absolutely no benefit for MS to even think about doing this. Also gg3 is better for scratch resistance, gg4 is better for drop resistance, so again, no benefit to have the newer glass.

    It's a joke, because the specs on the Canadian MS store site list it as having gg4

    Anybody know if the SQ1 store has sock. The phone is the ONLY reason I would go anywhere near a mall at this time of year.

    Curious? Why did you pick 950 over the BB Priv? I have a BB Z30 AND I own a Nokia 925 WP. I am trying to decide should I get Priv or 950?

    I know you weren't talking to me, but I'll chime in because I was debating between these phones too.

    I chose the 950 over the priv because initial reports suggested poor quality control and I've heard the camera isn't that good. Blackberry mobile has been dead/dying for awhile. Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on them (I'm an HTC fan so I know a little about drowning on a sinking ship). If any BB device were to persuade me into buying, it would have been the priv. Something about a slider in this day and age is intriguing to me, call me old fashioned. I figured going with MS seemed like a better bet.

    Yes. I still think bb10 is the best mobile OS . But I couldn't stand android. Being a phone addict I wanted something new so I picked 950. Despite all the negative reviews im liking the phone so far. Sone teetujnf issues such as battery drain etz. But im sure things will get better after a week or so.

    Loving the display and my main requirements work fine - email, sms and some apps. No complaints so far. Loving the camera.

    Aske me if you need by further info.

    Thanks for your response...I am leaning towards the 950 for the reasons you pointed out. Also, that slider mechanism is having problems with some users and it is something else that can break overtime. Also, I have a Microsoft computer and Xbox One, so I would be back in the MS Ecosystem...plus it is cheaper than Priv.

    Agree with you 100%. I have a BB Z30 WITH BB10 and it is a great OS. I have a WP 925 now and have always loved the WP. The 925 stared freezing up on on me and I grabbed a BB. I do not care for millions of apps hence the reason I have been on WP and BB and not Android. I am leaning towards the 950 because pound for pound it out spec the Priv and it is cheaper....

    Someone above said that Toronto Eaton's has the 950, but does anyone know if SQ1 or Yorkdale do? It's a reasonably long trek from Hamilton, so I don't want to make the drive if it's going to be for nothing. My 920 is extremely flaky at the moment, so I'd like to replace it.

    Also, do any of these stores have display models out?

    Cheers.

    So I got the last 950 from Eaton Centre location, yesterday morning. Someone canceled a preorder, as they thought they had reserved the XL and I happened to walk in at the right time.

    Just to answer my own question, they do have display models out and also a nice Continuum setup, to show it off.

    The actual stores are Microsoft, the online store is not. Maybe that explains the delivery problem for online orders? Online store routinely screws orders up, can't wait for a store in Montreal

    Verizon in the US, L950 and XL don't work, you can see the details on some other chats. Also heard some had to do a hard reset before their carrier would recognize. Just curious. No problems on Koodo, I assume?

    No problems with Koodo. Getting used to my first ever windows phone. I come from bb10 - so I still miss some basic things like all mails view, bed time mode with auto exit when alarm goes off, not having profiles for sound like work, home etc not having the hub etc.

    Not sure whether I can just live without those features yet. If not, I'm going to return the lumia

    So after a week, I've returned the phone. Great hardware but the OS nerds work. Main reasons fr returning : no all mails view, html emails with images not displaying properly, slow camera and heats up the phone when I take pictures continuously, no icloud Email push option.

    Bought a new BlackBerry Passport !!
