    1. Quite simply because Microsofts (and in particular Nadellas) comments over the last year have me wondering if they even stand behind their mobile strategy. In the current situation I am not willing to put in a major investment, so I am sticking to lower end phones for the time being.
    2. A 600+ $ phone needs to look like one without having to add another 50$ for a replacement cover.

    For me it's due to having 9 months left on contract, and I'm more wanting the XL which isn't available on the network I'm on

    They aren't sold in my country and I haven't been able to buy them as an import (ordering online is out of the question).
    Otherwise I'd be rocking a 950 xl from day one.

    Some leaks showed some info about the RedStone 1 and 2 release. Seems that MS is taking this seriously after users trashed them all over with the quality of the current OS builds.

    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.
    having no VVM doesn't bother me much, but the 2nd sim icon is just annoying though. so yes they should offer single sim or warranty.

    I already have a 930. For me main benefits of having a phone are :-

    1. Small size ( 4.7" is perfect for me)
    2. Excellent camera and multimedia features. 930 is good in those aspects, but low light photos are a disappointment for me.
    3. Pretty good battery life ( I don't mind a little bulk to the phone as a trade off for longer battery life)
    4. All the sensors for fitness apps.

    950 does not satisfy any of the above requirements for me, no I did not buy it . I am waiting for such a phone from any non-Android vendor.

    Well, I would've held off but I needed a stronger phone than the 640 since I am a power user, but had I known that the Surface Phone was a for sure thing, I probably would've waited to get that over my new 950.

    1. Lack of apps
    2. Looks and feels cheap
    3. Not worth the money
    4. Start screen is really getting boring.

    I agree with all of your reasons. I will add that I don't expect a true 1020 replacement. I'm just loath to "upgrade" for an unfinished, unstable, and overpriced product. When they sort it out, drop the price, and my 1020 is closer to its end date, I'll switch.
    I replaced my 1020 with a 950xl (Loving it btw), with my wife refusing to do so as her 1020 "Has a better camera due to the megapixels being higher." After comparing pictures taken with the xl and the 1020 she had me order a 950 that same day. I don't regret loosing my 1020 at all, the battery life on the XL is double that of my two year old 1020's.

    I really want to love the 950/XL. The specs alone should persuade me with up-to-date mega core processors, 3GB RAM, gorgeous QuadHD screen, W10 native. Plus, all the shortcomings I have with the 930 are addressed i.e. expandable storage, larger screen, thinner and lighter body, greatly improved cooling, Glance support.

    So I admit that some of reasons against it might seem a little pretentious but it just goes to show how much we are affected by the little things in such big ways.
    1) Totally uninspiring plastic body and a flimsy back cover. My 930 looks and feels like a premium product, solidly built. The 950/XL looks stuck at the early reference design stage.
    2) Only available in white and black. In stark contrast to all previous Lumia flagships, this is a backward step. I don't want a third-party cover to express a colour preference. Equally, I don't want to associate with Apple or Android fanatics.
    3) Doesn't support double-tap-to-wake *currently*. I'm guessing that this will be addressed in a future firmware update, I can't imagine that the hardware simply doesn't support it but it adds to the feeling of an unfinished product.
    4) Yes, it's still a little too expensive. In the UK, clove.co.uk are selling the 950 for 449, the 950XL for 529. I paid 435 for the 930 (from Clove) upon its release and although back in 08/2014, that was still a little overpriced, I felt it was justified because it came with a generous bundle including a Bluetooth speaker, an additional wireless charger/battery pack and a 20 app store voucher.

    So adding it all up, it's not compelling enough for me to get the 950 even with the ground-breaking Continuum feature which of course, requires more optional kit. Plus, I'm guaranteed to upgrade my existing 930 and 830 and breathe new life into what are still quality pieces of hardware. Why do I need the 950?

    I'm a Verizon user who can't switch carriers right now...and for a tongue in cheek reference (though the truth), no Amazon ALEXA app...love the shopping list feature of Amazon Echo... (and yes, had to go to Android because when my ICON died, no flagship to replace with)...

    I don't see any logic in spending โ‚น50k on a smartphone when I can get a full PC for 70k. I am talking about Surface 3 or Dell XPS 13.
    However, of L950 came with Intel processor and ran full Win 10, I could have bought it already.

    Because it's huge. XL has even less acceptable size. Waiting for phone the size of L820. What I'm looking forward is high end phone that can sit comfortably in a hand and is thumb friendly.

    Same here with my 950XL I have no problems apart from wmpoweruser app heats the phone up quite a bit. Battery easily lasts a day heavy use, no reboots, Windows Hello works great for me since the firmware update. I couldn't be happier.

    So many people say that win10mobile is so buggy and horrible and I don't understand it. Myself with my 640 and 950, and multiple friends haven't had a problem even close to what people list online. It's really weird
