    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 i will have no second thoughts in selling one of my kidneys, or half of my liver, remains to be seen, if that Surface phone could run win32 apps, that would be just insane.

    What's with the talk of Surface phone rumors? Only thing I found seemed to be more emerging market tech.

    Argh, can't decide....XL looks beautiful, but not yet ready for bigger pants. 5.2" perfect size but don't like the look. In the end I probably go with looks (and possible blue colour), should go well with surface pen

    I am thinking the 950. Had a 1520 for a while and it was just too big. This all depends on pricing. If I cant afford it right away, i may hold out with my 830 and go with a surface phone.

    L950XL if I dont find them too ugly which (personally) I do looking at the renders. Then I might need to downgrade to crapdriod until Surface Phone.

    I'm guessing the phones are going to look better at the October 6th event than the leaked renders. They show an old version of the OS too which looks pretty lame. I'm also thinking they will look cooler in person and feel better in the hand (hope).

    I'll probably go with talkman or whichever one is the smallest physically. I do want a premium phone but I don't want to carry around a backpack specifically made for it.

    Hoping Telus will carry at least one. I would prefer the 950XL, if I had a choice.

    Once Microsoft releases them I plan on going to the local Microsoft store to hold them in my hand but currently the plan is to pick up the 950XL.

    I'll take a 950XL to go please...

    ...And then use the proceeds of its sell value to finance the rumored Surface phone if it happens...

    That's assuming all these work on Japanese LTE bands as well as US bands (and since the OnePlus One I own now does, there's no reason to think Cityman wouldn't either.)

    I already have a Talkman and, with the latest build, I started using it as a daily driver. So far, so good. Coming from a bigger handset, where I always needed to use both hands, this feels right for me. Most likely I will stick to it after launch.

    I would probably go with the 950. However, I want Qi.
    Don't get why its integrated into 950XL and not the 950, you need a flip case to have it??
    Do not like flip cases, so there goes that.....

    Also why the hell are they making 2 nearly identical flagships?
    Basically the difference is a 6 core to an 8 core, a .5mm screen size difference, and the Qi if I am not mistaken??
    (i dont GAF about metal camera rings or small differences like that). I'm taking strictly about hardware.

    Anyone else thinking why? or is it just me
    Would it have not been better to have a flagship as well as a mid to high end model as well?

    My plan was to finally have pc,tablet,phone under the same platform.

    I just recently bought one of those cheap chinese tablets (Teclast X98 Air II) to fill the tablet void I had, since I stopped using my BB Playbook like 2 years ago (used it for travelling, but stopped using a "tablet" when we got screwed out of BB10 upgrade for it). For what those chinese tablets are, they are a great bargin. I am running win10 on it and it runs smooth and fast. I would recommend to anyone looking for something cheaper. I just wish I had known about the X98 pro coming out because I would of got that instead (upgraded cpu,gpu and extra 2gb of ram).

    I was to complete the set with a new windows phone, but I dont want the bigger one just to get Qi.
    TBH, now that I have seen what can come from those chinese manufacturers, including seeing some of those cheap (but high spec) chinese phones as well, I am really hoping that one of those manufacturers does release a high spec W10 phone. I have seen a few rumors about a couple. If I can get a similar high spec chinese phone that is close to what is being offered my microsoft, I think i will try out that route first.

    fingers crossed...

    Really? Does it have Qi, or does that require a case? Weight? Tell us more!

    Because some people want a humongous phablet, while others just want a normal sized display. I'm actually somewhat upset that they didn't make them more identical. The way they set up these phones, people who simply want the smaller device are also getting the inferior device, due to hardware differences. They should just put qi and the best processor possible in BOTH of them... These two phones should be exactly the same but just two different sizes...

    Respectfully, to play devil's advocate, they tried that and it didn't work. There comes a point when a company can't be all things to all people. There's a reason that MS moved to a strategy of focusing on fewer market segments. In doing so, there must be some concessions. the 950 allows them to have a "value" offering at the high end and enables those who would otherwise be purchasing a midrange device to avoid a perceived downgrade to something like the 640XL.

    I enjoyed the Lumia 950 XL, well designed and satisfying. 950 I do not like the design, plus it's super top !! Here in Brazil I heard a lot of criticism from both devices!

    No. Definitely no.

    I'll buy an x86 phone
    and will wait patiently til a Surface phone is available
    or some other vendors will offer attractive concepts.

    ARM no more. Done with it.
    If it's Windows it better comes with x86.
