    But to be fair the 810 is v2.1. This has been proven to fix all the issues of the original 810. Read the reviews.
    Can you link to a few of those reviews? From my reading, 2.1 is not fixed. Indeed, the name is misleading, as it was only the .1 that is the difference. The one that had the initial issues was 2.0.

    Fixed it certainly is not, well according to the press I have seen.

    Ticking more and more boxes for me. I think the white is really nice looking. And the rear and side colours are not visible from the front! Nice one.

    Definitely for me those colours gives it a different perspective/appeal but can't say its mind-blowing, will need one in-hand to know for sure how we really feel about them.

    3300 mAh removable battery!
    MicroSDXC card storage support!
    I'm sold......I'm even happy about the Snapdragon v2.1

    ...? So little confused is the display AMOLED? And does it use Gorilla Glass 4?

    I also heard OLED with Gorilla Glass 3

    Does anyone know witch one their using?

    Gorilla Glass 4 is superior to 3!

    Yah the white one looks much better than that blue one. The blue one is way too loud.

    The part beside the speaker is likely to let air in so that the snapdragon stays cool.

    Only if it looks textured like blood so you can tell people just how strong polycarbonate is.

    The green one looks the best to me but unfortunately seems it's not coming so I would settle for the blue polycarbonate one! But again does the color really matter when you have a case? Only a clear case would benefit from a colored phone?

    a little. but still no wow factor like how we used to when lumia 920 appeared, or 925, or 930. the design looks like lumia 940 with a little inspiration from lumia 1520. i'm not even sure about the placement of buttons on 950xl. the only benefit i see there is we can take snapshots and restart the phone easily using our thumb. i feel like it's like that so that we can easily take a snapshop of a bug and report, and easily restart the phone when it crashes or hangs hehehehe seems we will do that more often in the future -_-

    the phone looks good in white, not black, because the silver ring on the camera is not too emphasized. and i think i will like the logo. it's like it's embossed downward and filled with glass so it think it will look good.

    but given the current mess of the windows mobile 10. there's no wow factor overall -_- just promises of a good experience such as continuum, quasi-android support, a potential surface phone, that still haven't seen the light of dawn until now. hehehe i'm not sure if i'm going to switch brand for now, or wait in vain.

    No. I've been looking for an upgrade to my Lumia 925, and I've settled on one of these being the choice I go with. The only thing I'm worried about it price. I want the 950XL, just not the price tag that I fear it'll have.

    Actually fingerprint is super easy to get around. You only need some tape. It's been shown how it can be bypassed with a little effort.
    Show me proof that TouchID on the iPhone can be bypassed with "very little effort." That is absolutely not true.

    i just don't get all the complaining... You all want a windows phone... Yet you want it to be a a galaxy or an iphone rather than it being unique as it is. There is nothing cheap about this phone... This phone is designed with function in mind rather than marketing what premium is...
    I agree to a severe degree +Like +Thank.

    All-glass or glass-dominant bodies are overrated IMO. The Lumia series is smarter for staying on Polycarbonate as far as ergonomics and longevity are taken into consideration.

    It's not that cut and dry. It depends on the fingerprint sensor. I don't know whether MS will require such security features on WM to meet certain standards, or if OEMs are free to use the same trash sensors most consumer devices ship with, but that's what it will depend on. An example:

    http://www.nature.com/news/ultrasoun...curity-1.17904

    If iris scanning just uses a standard front facing camera, than that will also be very easy to fool.

    Whether this qualifies probably depends on your definition of "very little effort". I think it does, as it's much easier to bypass than a PIN. TouchID was bypassed by CCC mere days after the 5S launched, and they provided a DIY guide anyone can follow:



    http://www.ccc.de/en/updates/2013/cc...-apple-touchid



    If you have access to a clean glass surface a person recently touched, you can bypass that person's touchID.



    This would not work using the type of sensor I mentioned in my post above.

    "very little effort". As in for someone who knows how to do it and does it on a regular basis. As I said if you want to get into enterprise info compared to what else you can do this is much less effort.

    I like the clean design and lack of metal; I'll take polycarbonate over aluminum any day. However, I will be disappointed if this phone only comes in black and white. I don't mind the blue I've seen elsewhere, but this phone really needs to come in more colors. Unfortunately, given the close-mindedness of consumers I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft is scared out of trying more vibrant colors.

    To answer the question of the post, NO, my opinion did not change after seeing the 950xl press release. I love that phone. My opionion did change on the 950, they ditched the stupid camera lens trim ring in the preview photos to something more like the xl's trim.
