    Because I bought a Nexus 5x instead but I might come back to the platform.

    Quick question, when did asterisks become the means of typed emphasis? I thought we had capital letters, italics, and underlining for that.

    I wanted to buy a Lumia 950XL but in the mean time I needed to buy an iPhone 6s for some apps. Call quality, display and camera of iPhone 6s can't match even the Lumia 930 I already own. So I will wait for Surface Phone.

    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.
    I'm also on a company Verizon business plan so I'm pretty much locked in to Verizon and can't switch to AT&T. I currently have a Lumia Icon but I've been off contract for a year now, still waiting for something to upgrade to.

    Cost for me. The ROI is rather steep when compared to a 640 or a 640XL. Yeah, I know 950's have more "umph" but if it were just about umph, why not buy a secondhand 1520 with some REAL umph?

    I do own a 950, but the main factor of hesitation for me before buying was whether the OS was stable enough. Second to that was whether the specs and cost were a little too high for my usage. I could have probably got by with a quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM if a Win10 Lumia with those options was avaliable.

    I am interested in the 950, but the unfinished OS is the primary factor keeping me away. Cost is also a consideration as ~$600 is a significant amount of money to be spending on a phone with an incomplete OS. Once W10 Mobile is officially ready to go, I'll consider the 950.

    Until then, I'll keep an eye out for price drops and any rumored release dates for the surface phone.

    I have a L1520 which I got for 420 (new). I find the L950XL barely an improvement. And it's TOTALLY not worth spending 700 just so I can have a bit faster processor, a bit more RAM which I won't use, a smaller screen and a smaller battery.
    Waiting for something huge that will make my L1520 crap. That's what I'm going to buy next.

    Lack of dual sim in UK. Heard you can buy from other European stores, but then possible issues with Cortana and updates. I don't understand why dual sim isn't the standard. Surely they would make some savings from having just one type of phone.

    A, B and C are the reasons for me.
    Also, brand new phone with limited availability in Canada, still listed as 'coming soon' 'email me when available' since the initial 4 hour launch in November.

    Being that we have a half-baked OS running on last year's hardware, poorly; I'll be waiting for the next flagship that's got the Snapdragon 820 with SenseID in it. As a wearer of glasses with a gigantic astigmatism, I can't imagine an iris scanner to be as reliable as a 3d fingerprint.

    Simple reason for me. I am stuck in a two year contract (one more year to go).

    ^This. Exactly the same situation for me.

    I will probably have to hold onto my Icon until a carrier-independent Surface Phone comes around... to be on Verizon is to be exiled to the wilderness for Windows Phone fans.

    Very good question!

    And my answer is a funny story:
    Well i have bought one from a private seller...i paid..but instead i received an ice tea..well thats the price i paid for trusting him :D
    and i dont have enough money just to order another one :D and i almost sold my 930 on eBay because i expected the 950 XL to arrive...what a great start into 2016 :D

    I want one but am strapped for cash. I live in an area where ATT is not available so I have to purchase one at retail price. So, I have to wait until I have the cash to do it.

    My answer is pretty simple really. I don't need a new phone right now.

    My Lumia Icon is still kicking butt and taking names.

    I'm REALLY interested in trying out a Windows phone, but I'm hesitant to spend that kind of money when my iPhone is fine. Even if a Windows phone could be better for me.

    You took the words right out of my mouth. For me, it's a and b taken together. I would really like the 950, but I can't justify spending $600 on a phone with an unfinished OS. I'll definitely get one in the future but only when the OS is mature enough.

    I was really excited about it before launch, then I played with one and my balloon was deflated. The hardware feel was really meh. 10M needs a few updates too.

    What nonsense!!

    I have the AT&T 950.

    A. WM10 is properly released for the 950 and stability is not an issue. Bringing forward features that were in 8.1 like geofenced Wi-Fi and the ability to rotate your Glance screen background would be nice. MS also needs to address how the camera focuses at night. But stability is not an issue.

    B. Wishful thinking for any significant price drop in anything like the short term

    C. Waiting for a 1020 version is useless. Retrenching means not making niche products and no matter how much you love the 1020, it was a niche product. It's not happening...

    D. Expecting a Surface phone to be out quite soon! Are you delusional? They're likely still prototyping and figuring out what they'd like to do. I expect a Surface Phone out no EARLIER than last quarter of 2016, and likely 2017.
