    I'm kinda hoping that the new flagships have a micro-USB and a Type-C port. One of the reasons I went with the Surface 3 over the Pro is that it charges by micro-USB, which is the same as my 1520 and my LG Tone + headset. When I travel with a Incident Management Team, sometimes my luggage space is limited, so having one wall wart and a couple of cables saves valuable space. That being said, I'm sure Continuum will need the additional throughput of a Type-C port.

    My biggest hope is that it will use the Surface Pen and run OneNote. That would be a killer application!

    Although, i'd be ok with it, the rumored specs are just on par with what's out last year.

    In order for MS to hit this out the park, they need to come with it.

    Windows Hello
    Continuum
    Glance Screen
    2k screen
    Qi or wifi charging
    Exceptional breakthrough quality camera with OIS and HAAC microphones.
    SD Card slot
    Removable battery
    Pentaband modem

    .. in a thin metal bodied frame like Surface with SURFACE branding.

    They would need to pull out all stops to win some customers over and that's what we want and what other platform users need to get noticed. Nothing less is acceptable to be honest. Or, they'll be repeating 2010-2014 again with late to market specs and zero excitement.

    These specs are on par with what's just been released: LG g4, htc m9. That's current. That's a good thing, right? These supposed specs are current. No one should expect any less. More, well that's a bonus.

    I would rather have a 1080p HD instead of qHD. Battery life is important to me. Everything else seems ok.
    Definitely agree. It feels like there is room for one more phone below these 940s. 1080p screen, quad core, maybe 4.7 to 5 inch screen...Lumia 935? That would probably be the sweet spot for me.

    You're the thinking of the (incoming!) 840 with those specs. :) I'm hopeful it will have all of that.

    Windows Hello would be an amazing feature but for them to use that they would have to switch to intel chips

    Do you have denim on your 930? And if so how would you describe the battery life? Compared to the 1520..if you've had any of the 92x series phones (920,925.928), would you say it lasts longer than those?
    Sorry, I meant I have both the 1020 and a 1520. I was referring to 41MP vs 20MP.

    I do not have a 930, sorry.

    if you allow me to answer that, battery life on the 930 with Denim is good. Also, about temperature, the phone is acceptably warm most of the time, no crazy heatings or power drains. Battery life is also better than the 925 i used to have. It's still not better than the 830 on both matters though, but i can say i'm satisfied with it.

    I can second this. Using the Icon/929

    Also to answer the thread question, no I'm not disappointed at all. I'll hang onto this 929 for awhile but I really want to get something that will support continuum.

    While we're at it, are there any tests comparing the 930 battery life before and after Denim?

    I didn't see anything about windows hello that would require the use of intel chips. Microsoft has not stated this.

    I'd really like to see something new in a sub 4.5" model and preferably 4.0". But I fear these are done in the mid/high end arena.

    I think it's just because Intel is more or less the only company making a camera capable. But with Windows 10 launch, I would others would want to make cameras that support Windows Hello, and they would most likely be able to be integrated into non Intel chipsets.

    I'm still hoping for a 1520 successor with all the bells and whistles.

    Just as long as it still has amazing battery life.

    Hexa core and octa core processors? Really? -_- That's overkill for phones!


    Actually it may not be. With what I saw from build, your phone will turn into a pc with windows 10. That horsepower would be needed.

    They would need to keep the wireless charging, and ois with a good camera. SD card slot would be nice to! That sounds like what I am looking for.

    I think the only thing they should go crazy with is camera spec, fit the best you can in there, and storage. 128gb minimum. The awesome thing about WP is that is runs smooth on less than nuts hardware. No need for hardware that just eats batteries for no reason. The size, a 4.7ish and a 5.7ish inch screen would be great.

    The only complaint I have is the rumored front facing camera specs. 5mo for a high-end phone these days is ridiculously low. Even many midend devices from popular manufactures have an 8mp front shooter. Quality selfies is important to the relevant crowds. It's also very important to me, I have an icon and the front facing camera sucks, so I believe Microsoft needs to get it right this time and keep all the specs highend instead of just some of them. Even the fact that they are putting 3 gigs of ram instead of 4 is a downer. Why? Not because we need 4 gigs... We don't lol, but because other bighead competitors have 4gigs, so to the consumer they are going to say why should I get this phone with less ram and a crappier front facing camera when I can get this better specd phone. And seriously that is how consumers think, so it important to address in high end devices. Obviously the iPhone doesn't count here, people buy the iPhone regardless of it's specs lol. Give me a better front facing camera and then I'll be happy with the new flagships.
