    Agreed, most phones look boring and the same anyways from a straight on front and rear view.....Look at the iPhone product page and tell me it looks high end with those bezels and plain design, plus ugly stripes!....boring as hell, but in person and in hand it's gorgeous.

    This is the flagship design we were supposed to get. Aka the cancelled McLaren. They could've easily used this premium design without the buggy 3D touch screen technology.uploadfromtaptalk1441076453413.jpguploadfromtaptalk1441076460591.jpg

    Microsoft should bring Lumia 940/XL as well as other Lumias on the design language of Lumia 925, plus removable back cover like that of Lumia 830.
    Honestly, the designs of Lumias in 2015 is poor. ALL THE LUMIAS should have Aluminium rounded frames like that of Lumia 925 or Xperia Z3+ or at least solid hard polycarbonate frames like that of Xperia M4 Aqua, the front screen Glass panel should sit perfectly with no gaps with Display Panel and meet the corners of phones with no gaps between them.
    The fully removable back covers like that of Lumia 630 or 640 have results giving creaks between back cover and back body of the phones and the gaps between the front corners and glass panel of the phones is too much.

    I take 950/950XL design over any phone hehehe.
    Do you honestly think these design renders if would come true would appeal to any other Android Or Iphone user to look at these phones seriously for buying?

    So the solution is to buy an overpriced phone that is easily broken?

    Yes, disliking metal phones without removable battery and even sd card support is pretty common. However people will still buy their brand if they don't have other options. And since almost every Flagship is going that way you can't really choose. So thank God Microsoft.

    Same goes for Samsung S6 for example, I'd buy it for the specs and not 'Cos I would get a glass back without battery and SD card.. Mehh.. Processor, Camera performance, Screen quality. Yes.

    Won't it be better Lumia smartphones with Aluminium frames or even hard polycarbonate frames but still with removable back shell and Battery like that of Lumia 830, rather than fully removable back shell like Lumia 640?
    The fully removable back covers like that of Lumia 640 or 635 give creaks and gaps between back cover and back body of the phones and the gaps between the front corners and glass panel of the phones are too much. So, I hate this kind of design.

    I have 830 and 735, and as much as 830 should feel "premium" I'm not very happy about dents on the Aluminium frame that I cannot replace with a new shell like I can on 735. No need of a repair if you can just spend 25 on a new shell.

    And surprisingly the 735 has no gaps between the shell and the phone's hardware, while my 830's Aluminium frame has gaps on the bottom side that leaks light from the capacitive buttons, and the plastic cover's hole for the Camera does not fit correctly.

    However an idea of having a harder piece of Polycarbonate as a frame would be nice too. Although I'd prefer smaller costs of a repair with a flagship.

    Yet that's just me who prefers Specifications over material used or design to some point.

    The people here defending Microsoft's decisions so hard will change their tune as soon as/if the rumored Surface phone comes out. Then they'll be praising it for its non basic and premium design. I would like to see how many people saying the 950/950XL designs are so great would pick them over the Surface phone. It's so sad. I love Microsoft but I'm not blind to the point where I make excuses for every choice they make especially the ones that make you go hmmm.

    I came to these forums because i'm tired of Android, and tired of rooting to get what i want. There are enough apps in the windows store, to keep me happy. My LG G3 contract will be up soon, and i really liked the design of the 640XL. However, i'm holding out for the 950XL, because i like the faster processor. The "give and take" in this forum is refreshing, but it's starting to get reminiscent of the old Crackberry forums. Everyone should just agree to disagree, period. I do like new thoughts and ideas. It's just the way that they are put forward that's a little disturbing.

    Why does user have to be blind because they like these designs? Daniel Rubino said it himself....the odd thing is, it is windows phone users whining about these designs when non-windows phone users(aka the ones usually bashing windows phone) say they look pretty good. Irony.

    Please don't tell me what I will do if a surface phone comes out? When I buy a phone I rarely pay attention to how it looks. After all I have owned phones such as the Microsoft Kin, Kyocera Echo(Dual Screen Android Phone...seriously look up how ugly it was), Motorola cliq, backflip and many other phone.

    Why? I brought them because they looked cool/unique to me....not because they were pretty. I brought them for the FEATURES of the phone. For Microsoft Kin, I love the kin studio/spot(which they would bring it back to windows 10 somehow) and I love pulling my Echo out and being able to watch a video on one screen and have a text message open on the other.

    I had the xpera play which was ugly as sin simply because I could play playstation on it. It could have been way better designed and its camera sucked royally(this was Pre-lumia) but I got it for its features...not its looks.

    As far as a surface phone, I'd get it if it had a better camera on Front and back than the new flagships and it brought something new feature wise.

    Premium to me is not something made out of metal and is just pretty....Premium to me is something that sets trends(like the 1020 with its epic camera) or the 1st phablet for the windows phone ecosystem(Lumia 1520) that brought me my favorite phone.

    Premium to me is being able to run new windows 10 features with no lag because it has amazing performance.

    That is precisely why apple users stick with IOS.Not for a design but because Apple brings them a quality product that builds on what the previous iPhone brought them....even with its redundant design.

    And that's what these Lumias likely will do...bring me new additions on top of an amazing Lumia experience.

    Besides
    I like my colors....and if a surface phone cant bring me colors like I have on my Lumia, then that kills a lot of my interest already.

    Let people have their opinions without you labeling them negatively because they disagree with you. After all even with Samsung's cheap plastic designs up until recently, no one denied that a Galaxy S4 or S5 was a premium device even when manufacturers had begun using glass and metal by then.

    640 XL is an amazing device as far as design goes...I am looking forward to this new XL :)

    Very valid points but for one people who were waiting for a Galaxy S phone didn't have to wait for over a year to get one and more for the people who didn't get a flagship at all since the Lumia Icon was exclusive anyway. For me that's dating all the way back to the Lumia 925. And even still Samsung designed phones with actual design elements when they were using plastic materials. They still looked nice even if the skipped out on the premium materials. My biggest point is that Microsoft had more than enough time to give us Lumia 640/640XL(that's not even to say they look bad)look alikes with high end specs. If we had a flagship last year then I could be way more forgiving but I just don't see how they have done us justice with these. I by myself could produce a phone design that is more intersting in less than a week. Just for fun I may do one.

    But what is the point of releasing a flagship last year when there was no major update? What company do you know that just releases a new flagship with no major updates to the os? It doesn't make sense to release a flagship on windows phone 8.1 update 1 when there is no real difference in update 1 vs 8.1
