    I've had many phones in the past but have mostly stuck to iPhones since the original iPhone came out (I have had a couple Androids and Blackberries in between). My last Windows phone was the ORIGINAL MDA before the smartphone became popular.
    I plan to keep this updated as my 950XL will arrive today. I will post my quick review and also what apps I used previously and the alternatives on Windows 10.

    I am excited for this adventure and really looking forward to the potential in the Windows platform now.

    Since this is technically my first post here let me reassure you, I have been a member on iMore, Android Central and Crackberry for MANY years; But I am glad to be here now. :)

    Good to meet you. I hope things go well with your new 950XL. I think you might struggle with some of the apps, but your difficulties may link to how attached you are to apps that have no direct match with Windows Phone. But, if you're willing to move forwards and adjust your view on things, then good things await you.

    I just received it.
    It's comfortable and built pretty well from first impressions.
    Pictures to come.

    Just got my 950XL... I'm in the US and they sent me a Dual SIM. Wonder if there is no Single SIM phones?
    Here are some pictures!

    Dual-sim? Really? I think I've read something like MS will not launch dual-sim version in US.
    Then is this one really a true dual-sim? Or MS just messes up inventory and ships out versions launching in other countries to US, interesting.

    Can't wait for mine to arrive! Keep refreshing UPS tracking webpage, although I know they will not deliver my device before noon.

    I'll be checking out the dual sim status with the phone. But the box does say that.
    My phone came from PA and I'm in Miami, Florida. So it's just whenever UPS makes the stop to you.
