    I am from Canada. There are no carriers selling this phone. The Microsoft store has been sold out since Day One. I could pick one up through Expansys for $50 more, making a phone priced $150 dollars more than it should be $200 dollars more than it should be. I will buy one when the Microsoft store gets them back in stock.

    1) Perfectly content with my phones currently (I'm a light user)
    2) Too big
    3) I don't trust W10M

    I had a Lumia 1020 on AT&T before my contract expired. I moved to Verizon because a) the service is way better in my area, b) I could no longer sustain the cost of the AT&T plan when I became a single parent, and c) a friend of mine allowed me to join their plan to help me save a lot of money without sacrificing the necessity of my phone. When I made the switch I got a Lumia 928, which I actually loved a lot. I was sitting on a upgrade for about six months in hopes that the 950's would be released on Verizon. Around the time that we were finding out that it wasn't going to show up there, my phone vibrated right off of the kitchen counter and the screen spider-webbed, despite my Trident Case.

    I had to replace it. I fought with Verizon for two days. They no longer had more 928's to replace it with and wouldn't let me choose the three other Windows phones because they "weren't comparable models". I asked them if I could do an upgrade instead and after going back and forth with them longer still, they said that I could but none of those would be considered upgrades either. They were basically pidgin-holing me into by either a new iPhone or an Android.

    Basically, I can't get a 950 because I can't afford to leave Verizon. If I could, I would have had one at launch. I ended up settling for a Galaxy S6. I use it, but I don't love it. I've had Windows Phones since I had an unlocked HTC HD7 on T-Mobile.

    (a) Waiting until W10M is properly released and is more stable
    (b) Expecting the price to drop soon (or simply consider it to be too expensive?)
    (c) Hoping for a 1020 style version
    (d) Expecting the Surface Phone to be out quite soon

    Or anything else?
    (a+b) $550-650 is way too much for a phone running a still too-unfinished OS.

    I would buy one but I am a Verizon Windows smart phone customer. Maybe Microsoft and Verizon will make a deal and have a Verizon net capable Windows Flagship smart phone for us loyal Verizon Windows smart phones fans

    My Honest Opinion : I would consider myself biggest fan of microsoft and see only they are marching in the right direction with one OS core/Continuum etc. As much as I would love to buy the lumia 950xl, I decided never to buy windows phone again [ owned few before ] until :

    They give option to have a desktop like home screen. Tile home page is fine but just 2 vertical sliding screens [ tile + all apps ] to me is so limiting and not smart. Even least customizable apple you can sliding through your home page if more apps. I for one spend more time just browsoing hoem screen, widgets and so like androids way of implementation/. Android way is nothing more than windows desktop OS with multiple desktops.

    So until and unless they provide a option or choice for users to default home screen to not be tiles only but with icons [ squares are not icons ] in place you like and add widgets or interactive live tiles.. Not BUYING.

    I wish you can measure user's pulse with a poll how many like tiles only screen and all apps screen.


    PS Apps problem is huge too, but i can manage with IE or worst case even ready to carry a second android phone that i can connect with my windows phone's hotspot.

    Not sure have this sentiment but yup no to WP until option to kick or hide tile screen away

    My employer provides my phone, for up to $200 on-contract price (I pay anything over $200), and my upgrade is due in February.

    Unfortunately, my employer is on Verizon, and right now the best WP they offer is the two year old HTC One M8. So I'll be crossing my fingers that a decent WP offering pops up on Verizon by February, or I'll go out on my own and find an Icon or something and wait to use my upgrade until something does come out.

    Though, knowing Verizon, if they're not offering the 950 they probably won't offer the Surface phone either.

    Damn where is my comment - i worte a big para.. Not sure anyways. I still want to make my point no buy until option for user to hide or avoid the tile only + all apps screen and choose a versatile windows desktop os like home screen where you can fill in with icons, interactive tiles, widgets etc and a task bar. I hate the limited WP homescreen

    I replaced my busted 920 with a cheap 640 and upgraded it to Win 10 and after putting in a 64gb SD card I've been perfectly satisfied with it for my day to day needs and I just don't feel a need right now to run out and buy a new phone for $700+

    Because a phone with no apps and a buggy, half baked OS isn't worth $700+ when you can get a 640 for $50 and use the $650 to buy another phone to have apps.

    1) No WiFi calling on T-Mobile (critical feature for me; my office is in an all carriers cellular dead zone); phone is useless at work without it.

    2) Costco made me an offer I couldn't refuse: Samsung Galaxy S6 for $20/mo for 24 months, plus $125 Costco GC, 2 free chargers, free case, 1 free Qi Charger, and 1 free Samsung Galaxy Tab A.

    Love Windows Mobile but had to (temporarily) hop on Android because of the two reasons above. I hope by next Christmas the Surface Phone meets or exceeds the experience of the 950XL; if it does, wifey gets the S6 and I'll get the Surface Phone! I miss Cortana badly, no joke.

    Where are you getting the 700+ number from? I bought my 950 for less than 600 dollars, and any competing phones at that price range would sacrifice something. That's assuming that I would be willing to use Android, and I am not.

    I entered the contest even though I planned on buying a 950. I entered because I'd love to have a free phone, simple as that.

    I have a L1520 with Windows 10... Why would I want a 950/XL? Continuum? No, it's great but I would never use it. AMOLED? No, IPS LCD is better IMO. There is no reason to move from a 1520 to that, the build quality is below par, the over design is just an insult and watching some videos on YouTube shows that in most cases the 1520 is the same speed and in a few cases actually quicker (when starting up, opening apps, camera etc.) than the 950XL. On another personal note, I prefer the bigger phone that the 1520 is, I know most people don't like the massive size but I do so dropping .3 of an inch and having to pay for it is just a no no. The 1520 is no slower, has a bigger and better screen and is far more nicer looking.

    Because it's basically exactly the same as the 930/1520 which i already own.

    You'd have to buy the 950XL off contract anyways, so you can still have a contract. You just buy one and switch your SIM card; you don't need an upgrade available.
