Microsoft Lumia 950 XL can now be pre-ordered in the U.S.; phablet ships November 25th
Want the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL? If you live in the U.S., the only place you are going to find the phone is the Microsoft Store. Apparently, the powers that be at Microsoft felt that the more expensive 950 XL would be a harder sale for the carriers to make, than the Microsoft Lumia 950. The latter is available in the states exclusively from AT&T.

Microsoft is now accepting pre-orders for the Lumia 950 XL in the U.S. Priced at $649, the unlocked unit is offered in black and white, and will start shipping on November 25th.

The Microsoft Lumia 950 XL features a 5.7-inch AMOLED screen, carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 515ppi. Under the hood you'll find the Snapdragon 810 SoC, which contains an octa-core 2.0GHz CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of expandable internal storage.

A 20MP camera graces the rear of the phone, with an aperture of f/1.9. The rear camera also features OIS. A Tricolor flash is included to help you take photos in the dark, and the 5MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3340mAh battery, and Windows Phone 10 Mobile is pre-installed.

Tell me about your 8 million clone flappy crush apps and the rest of your broken security hazards while I spend 99% of my time on three basic apps I need to work well every day. Face it, outlook, internet explorer, YouTube, and a decent Facebook/twitter app probably are all you use

Why do they take so long to make it available to the public? They announced it, what? October 6th? And it'll start shipping November 25th? Just release it a week or two after your press conference like Apple.

Like Apple? Why must everyone do as Apple does? You note: Apple ships thier iPhones by air, not by sea. So thier products can arrive anywhere in the world in les than a day, unlike other OEMs who ship thier products by sea and it takes several days and even weeks to arrive.

Welll, I can make some assumptions. But Assuming the Lumia is continuing to use the Carl Zeiss optics, I know it will be very close with the S6 vs the 950. The iPhone doesn't stand a chance. But I still would like to see the photos.

Working in my field I strongly happy I don't use Android or iOS every hour of every work day, and on the days off...even happier.

Use it as a phone for 6 months to 1year, leave it at home connected to hdtv as a desktop for another 1 year

Thats a good plan for when you upgrade.

the only thing is which one to choose. I dont really want an 810, im not sure if they sorted it with water cooling, but its still a s**t chip. But the xl looks good. mmm what to do.

Another great reason to buy this phone?? When the Surface Phone gets announced, microsoft might offer 950 owners a upgrade/early adopters price. Yeah, it's a stupid reason to buy a 600-700 dollar phone, but if w10 is as nice on my phone as it is on my computer I'll definately be first in line for surface phone, even if it comes out just 6 months from now.
