    Yeah if Microsoft's strategy works they will only make business and flagship phone and what would be better than a Surface Phone? I am really excited about this device.

    Yeah, after the Intel Surface Phone comes, I'm leaving Lumia and sticking with that if it serves not only business but as a good consumer device (the way Surface Pro does).

    I feel Lumia probably wont be around (at least under MS) too much longer after release Surface Phone & continue their first party phones under that brand. Unless it gets popular?
    Other OEM's are going to be jumping in & MS only needs one first party brand per sector of their Products (surface phone, surface, Ms band, hololens, Xbox)
    Rubino said something recently that gave me pause about the "Surface Phone."

    "Since this enterprise-focused phone is not a consumer flagship, it reasonable to assume the specs will be very good, but not out-of-the-ballpark expensive. Microsoft would likely to make a premium device for companies that can be bought en masse at a reasonable cost."

    If that's the case, I would bet that it may not have some of the same flagship like qualities as the Cityman or Talkman. Things like a high quality display, a high quality camera, qi charging, etc... May be missing. Sure, you'd have an intel processor. But there's a tradeoff.

    Yeah that had me somewhat worried too. I hope it has all the flagship qualities alongside whatever other new things it may bring.
    I mean the Surface was originally a business device, but it always had all the qualities of a popular consumer high end tablet PC... So hopefully the Surface Phone will follow the same route. Other wise this Surface phone wouldn't be too Surface-like at all

    I have to see how big the XL is before deciding. I would love built-in Qi since I have used it every day for three years. :)

    XL for me. Still using my almost two year old 1520. Love the size so I'd go for the bigger new model

    It'll definitely be around the same size as the 640 XL, considering the fact that they have the exact same screen size, and a very similar form factor/design (judging by the leaks of course)

    Against my better judgment I will buy another Windows Phone. Love my Icon except for the lack of apps, and I am still hoping that Universal apps rectifies that situation somewhat.

    I'll go for the 950XL. Want something with a large screen and as good hardware as possible.

    Yikes. You're still willing to give Verizon your business after the Icon fiasco? I love their coverage but... I'm hoping they don't get it so I have an excuse to leave. Unlocked and no contract for me.

    I want the XL but recently got a new job where i get zero cell coverage in my office. I'm hoping they will have wifi calling. I message my wife with Skype but can't expect everyone I know to move over to Skype in order to get a hold of me during the day. No wifi calling, that might be what actually drives me away from windows mobile.

    My first world problems are so sad.

    If i could like get a job by the next week, and maintain the good work in school (highschool, yikes), and if i could manage to save enough money, i'd go for the xl, just out of curiosity for the bigger screen. But, considering that i'm from Bosnia and the unemployment rate here is something above the 50% i think, i'll just call it a dream not come true. Meh.

    It really depends I'm in the not to excited about the design camp. However I want a WP10 phone so it will really come down to what T-Mobile decides to launch but my choice would be the 950XL I'm use to not getting the WP I want because of exclusive which appears to be the same as always. Though I could be tempted to look at cough 6plus dam exclusive. But wait I will October is close at hand and nothing right now is official. So hold and simmer.

    The 950... unless the size difference is negligible, then I'll consider the XL.

    the 950 .... maybe. I've got to have hands-on feel. I need to see if 5.2 inches will work for me. I've determined that a 5 inch screen is max for my comfort and I'm not sure about 5.2. I'll see. If not, I'm happy with my 830 and M8.
    I feel the same way. My 940 is at the outside edge of comfort for me size-wise, and the 950 is bigger. But who am I kidding? Imma buy a 950.

    I was almost certain that I would get a 950 due to the size, but having held and used my girlfriend's 640 XL, I really like the 5.7 inch size. I had no trouble holding and using it comfortably. So am strongly considering an unlocked 950XL now to go along with a switch from T-Mobile to Cricket.

    950XL for me, downsizing from a 1520. I will also look into the Surface line next year when its available.

    I want to believe the the rumored size of each of the handsets is wrong. When I look at the size comparison on Phonearena, Cityman looks particularly wide given the screen size. I suppose it's not horrible, but it's still wider than last year's Galaxy Note 4.

    To the point: 950XL in a heartbeat if the price is under $600. If not, then the 950. If the XL is over $600 and the 950 is over $500, then the Moto X Pure or the Nexus 5X, and I'll come back to Windows Mobile when they offer up their business-class handset.

    If the 950 had the same features of the 950XL then I would go with the 950. But built in Qi charging (what I am used to with the lumia 929) vs. Qi charging with flip cover, makes it an easy decision. 950XL. Although like I said I would prefer the 950XL specs with the 5.2 screen size. But ya cant have both now can you.

    Oh and also the 950XL has support for the surface pen which 950 does not. Not to mention 810 vs. 808 and 3300 vs. 3000 battery. God MS edge really sucks on this site its missing tons of keystrokes.

    I'm waiting on the finale design and specs, to decide it will have to be a large step-up over the 1520. What I've seen so far doesn't impress me for the price. I look for the finale design to be somewhat different from the prototypes we've been show. Plus I'll wait to see if people have hardware problems or any other issues as well. I'll ride my 1520 into the dust if need be.

    I was hoping to get the 950 but after reading it may be AT&T only today and I am with Tmobile I may abandon windows phone. I don't switch providers for phones and tired of exclusive crap.
