    It's still not available here in Brazil and Microsoft has not announced a release date, so I assume they are giving us the middle finger, and so am I to them. Nokia had respect, Microsoft ruined it here.

    My 640LTE works perfectly for what I need. The 950's don't really offer me anything extra beyond continuum to even remotely want to make the step up. And since I managed to get it 6 months ago for under $50 I certainly can't justify the cost of jumping to the 950 or 950XL. (And more importantly, the CFO of the family won't authorize the purchase of either device, since she's still happily using her 520)

    Hey, only 12 countries have received the 950s and 550. Africa, Australiasia and South America haven't received anything. That's about 80+ countries right there. Not to mention the dozens more in Europe and Asia. So be patient, like I am in Kenya

    yeah, but it was not like that with Nokia, Brazil is a huge WP market (we have more WPs than iPhones sold) and other manufacturers are much quicker. The new Motos G and X were released here simultaneously with the international launch.

    You missed a big reason why some people don't have one yet. It is currently only offered by one carrier in the United States. I would love to upgrade my Lumia 735 to the 950, but I'd have to switch carriers to do so.

    you're right. The whole world is a much bigger market than US but MS is just concentrating on US and a few other countries.

    the real market is in the developing world, in the BRICS countries, in the fastetst growing nations in the world

    agreed, even the 550 is nowhere to be seen where it most matters...

    Mainly because it is not available in my country (Singapore). My service provider gives us free $500 vouchers during upgrade to buy a phone. Waiting to buy one when I renew my contract and waiting for the phone to be released here.

    The number one reason I'm not even considering it is the size of the phone. I want to use (not experiment with) Windows 10 mobile. I want Continuum. I loved my Lumia 520, I'm jazzed about my 735 (although I am still kicking myself for not waiting to get the rm-1039 model), and I actually like how the 950 looks. The whole larger, flatter trend of phone in general is just not what I'm looking for though.

    I held a Lumia 435 the other day, and it felt great! If we do see a Surface line of phones, I'm praying that one of them will top out at 4.5" screen, but keeps all the power under the hood.

    Mainly A - but I hope to god they don't do something stupid with the surface phone that prohibits me from loading *any* windows desktop app onto it and using it when it continuum - i get that a lot won't work in phone mode - I dont mind about that, but being able to run scrivener from my phone would be awesome.

    1. On Verizon...
    2. Windows 10 Mobile- No matter how many people are happy with it, it's still buggy.

    I haven't bought a 950 because I want a 950XL.
    Why haven't I bought a 950XL? Because the version sold in the US is dual SIM and doesn't work 100% with US carriers. I.e. no VVM.
    While I could get the international single SIM version, that has no warranty in the US, so I'm waiting for the US stores to sell an XL that works with US carriers.

    I'm not considering 950 because of three reasons. The first: I bought 930 last spring (less than a year ago), and 950 is not so much an improvement over 2 years old 930.
    The second: I will never use continuum for work, because i can't imagine working without a pen, also don't have any tv or large monitor - surface 3 is my only "pc".
    And the last one: 950 doesn't feel like a high-end phone after 930. Took 950 and 640 in hands at the store and couldn't tell the difference nor visually, nor how it feels in hand.

    Simple answer: It's not available on my carrier (Verizon). If it was I'd have two already, one for me and one for my son. I've wanted one since they were first announced but after finding out that Verizon was not going to carry them or allow them to connect to their service it's left quite a bad taste in my mouth. Why anyone would announce a flagship phone but not have carrier backing in place I have no idea.

    Need Wifi Calling on T-Mobile. That, and only that, will prevent me from getting one.

    You can get the equivalent of WiFi calling on TMO by getting one of their WiFi/microcell routers. You'd have to put something like a $25 deposit, but if you go into the store, it's possible to score one without putting any money upfront. Give it a go.
