    Either sounds nice, but I'd have to go with the bigger phone. More battery, and should have more viewing space for stuff. All that needs to happen now is a Crunchyroll update.

    Assuming the rumored specifications are correct, both phones will have screen resolutions of 2560 x 1440px. Therefore, what advantage is there to getting the 950XL? Are the pixels larger or spaced further apart? If the resolution is the same, you won't actually get more on the screen.

    How much bigger is the 950 than the Icon? I thought they were about the same size.

    The 950 has a 5.2" screen and the Icon is 5.0". As it is, the Icon is a little too big for my taste anyhow. I tried out the Nokia 735 and the LG Lancet a few weeks ago, perfect size!

    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.
    The 950 will work with T-mobile.

    While I'm excited about the announcements, it's too early to say for me. I'm still quite happy with the Icon and I'm not jumping into anything until I have all the facts and I can hold them in my hand.

    I also want to see how the app situation plays itself out after the release of Win 10.

    My first thought would be Cityman because My last 3 new phones also included a bigger screen and I never wanted to go back...

    However I like the size of my 930 so perhaps if possible, I'd go to a store and take the Cityman in my hands to see how that goes...
    Also, I'm a huge fan of built-in Qi charging :)

    Im really not sure. Im using a 1020 and im a bit spoilt on the picture quality. I LOVE my xenon flash...that is a deal breaker for me. Was looking to get a 1520 as a media device but most of the apps I like aren't on wp (showbox movietube....suggestions?) but if push comes to shove id prob go 950xl...

    I don't play games on my phones, noticed that for awhile but even on my iPhone I don't play any games, so everyday performance including browsing the web, Twitter, Crunchyroll and Hulu is key for me. Thinking i'm going with the 950XL just for the battery but I do really like the 950's 5.2" display size

    Depends on whether there will be an unlocked version available in the US or not.

    A bigger screen is in and of itself a boon for many when watching movies, TV, or playing games, even if the resolution stays the same. I want the bigger screen because I watch Netflix and other streaming shows a lot on my phone.

    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.
    Haha yeah I tried using WCentral on my Edge browser in the laptop and it's virtually impossible. Kind of Ironic.

    I'll probably find a store and actually hold them before purchasing. My 920 feels pretty large in my hands right now so going up a 1/2 to 1 inch might be too much. Granted I probably have smaller hands than most of the people on this forum, so my experience probably isn't normal.

    Sadly my screen just cracked so the release date really needs to come quick!

    I think Microsoft is looking into adding wi-fi calling with Windows 10 mobile. I'm not sure if it will be available at launch though.

    Microsoft will be selling the phones directly even if your carrier isn't selling the phone. You'll probably have to pay full price for th device, but it would be unlocked and off contract.

    Ouch, I'd say I still have a perfectly good condition 920 if you want to stick with that model, but the new devices are coming out soon. I upgraded to the 930 from the 920, and I like having the 1520 specs in the smaller size.

    I'm probably going for the 950XL, but I want to see how it feels in my pocket first. The 1520 was a little too big for most of my pockets, and the "pointed" corners were an annoyance any time I sat down.

    I love my 1520 but yesterday it fell out of my shirt pocket fell to the ground and cracked the screen so I will be upgrading to the 950 XL (sounds like an expensive Mercedes model LOL) the day it is released. I'm still hoping they release it at 6".

    To those who expect a Surface phone, let me remind you that it may not be a flagship phone. Current leaks (well they are just leaks) doesn't show high end specs rather than just metal design.

    It's seeming more and more that the initial surface phones are going to be targeted at enterprise rather than consumer based upon the latest "retrenched" article. The leaked specs probably aren't true based on the fact that the cameras can't even be run off the chip listed.

    The rumors of the HTC A9 specs sound like a good upgrade from a 1520. That and the direction of WM10 make it an interesting contender.

    I am hoping that ATT picks up the 950 XL. If so Ill check it out and maybe buy it to supplant my 1520. If they don't then Ill wait on the Juggernaut Alpha aka Surface Phone.

    While I would love to wait for the Intel-based phone, my aging 920 needs to be replaced as soon as possible. I originally thought I'd get the 950, but having played with a 1520, and in light of Microsoft's new one-handed use feature, I'm thinking the 950 XL. I really want Wireless Charging like my 920 has, and I like the design of the XL. I'm really hoping we do get the Cyan color option, as the colors have always set Windows Phones apart(at least until a metal Surface Phone comes out). Planning on purchasing outright so I can upgrade to whatever the Surface Phone may be.

    Well the phones are going to support Universal LTE which should include Verizon LTE bands.That should help.
