    We just wait our turn. It'll happen eventually. With good running 950's, we aren't suffering while we wait. :)

    I LOVE mine. Its AWESOME. do NOT believe ANYTHING negative you read. If you have a MS retail store near you, just go there and play with one for a while(1, 2, 3 ..........hours without a hassle), then YOU be the judge of it YOURSELF. I can tell you this, iPhone can eat its dust in just about everything it offers(actually iPhonie does not even come close to anything competition offers, its about 4+ years behind). I have compared it with all the top phones at 2016 CES convention in Vegas, and in many ways it superior to many. The only other phones that can come close to it, It the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium 4K waterproof phone, LG V10, Samsung S6 edge. even these awesome phones do NOT offer Continuum, dual SIM slots. Liquid cooling CPU, or USB-C, RGB flash, ......... all you have to do it Compare the """""SPECS"""" and see what you are getting. Everyone at CES was impressed with My 950XL, when i told them what it offers and go over its """SPECS""". I also showed them its camera/photos, and people were in WOWs. This phone its incredible and works fantastic. that's all i can tell you. Just spend quality time with one and see for YOURSELF.

    Also FYI, I took so many 4K videos at tons of photos at CES, with my screen set at super high brightness, with transferring many photos to my sons phone, and text messaging pretty much all day long and the battery lasted form 7am till 7:15 pm when i got home from the show. As soon as i see replacement battery available for sale for my XL, i'll buy one and carry it in my pocket, JUST IN CASE, if i should ever need one(i haven't yet). I hope this helps.

    I have gotten my 950XL DS for a few days now, having upgraded from the 1020/930 before this. The main reason for me getting this phone was for the camera. Coming from the 808/1020, I felt that the 930's image quality didn't quite cut it - good, but didn't quite blow me away the way the 808/1020 did. I haven't had too much opportunities taking pictures with my 950XL, but from the few samples (hopefully I will get around to sharing them later), my initial impression is this: the 950's camera is very good, definitely much better than the 930 especially in low light. I am also quite impressed with the level of details that it is able to capture in good lighting. I don't want to comment too much on this until I get a chance to try it more, but so far I'm happy, and it seems the image quality is closer to the 1020 than it is to 930.

    Other than camera - no major problems with the phone. Despite initial apprehension, I find myself quite liking Windows 10 Mobile (over WP 8.1) - the notification/action center, keyboard with pointer/voice, cleaner settings, much better mail / calendar app, store are some of the highlights. Edge is promising, but definitely needs more work. I wish there is double-tap to wake, hope they enable this in future - for now it is compensated by that lovely glance background with color.

    The only serious problem for me, so far, is that it took me many tries to install the MICROSOFTMDG update as it got stuck at 0%. The other issue was the creaky case at bottom corner. Apparently this is a common problem which I found the sound quite unsettling initially but somehow I have come to tolerate/ignore it. Hopefully I can find a new case (Mozo?) that will not have this problem.
