  • Surely then, Thailand is next?
     
  • This is too much for me. Glad I bought an 830.
  • urrrrrrrrrrrrrrhhhhhgggg i need money haha
  • I will wait for a sale. This is to much money for a third world country
  • Ya, in India also the prices too high, they are loosing potential buyers. And also the regional marketing managers didn't do any market research for the price of lumias. They didn't understand that this is not USA.
  • What would you like them to do? make it cheaper for you?. Then everyone would go and buy one there and bring it home to sell. That is not good business. That is the price you pay or you don't.
  • They look far less than the iphone6s, the proportion is the same as in other countries. Prices are relative. http://www.apple.com/ph/shop/buy-iphone/iphone6
  • But you have Continuum, so you can avoid to buy a PC...
  • I bought my lumia 1520 @ 29,900.00 a year and a half ago. So i think this is just a fine price. I'll get one after new year.
  • Ha, I got my 1520 almost have the price of its release price. Clearance sale it is!
  • third world???????
  • Finally. I've been waiting for this...
  • Wow, so it sell for much more expensive than US. This is asia, what kind of pricing is that?
  • I get you but the pricing is cheaper than India,even the dock.
  • Hmm..this was the pre-order prizes which were published earlier in MS Ph site but the ₱32k L950XL is bundled with the dock
  • http://www.apple.com/ph/shop/buy-iphone/iphone6
  • Just letting you all know, you can get phone Lumia 950 XL from http://www.1shopmobile.com/Mobile-Phones/Nokia/Microsoft-Lumia-950-XL-LT... $669USD and $35 shipping which totals to $704USD
  • What about the warranty? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • hmmm..I will buy one on next year's sale though it will be a good news to interested buyers. I am not ready to upgrade my 1520 just yet.
  • Me too
  • Im just gonna buy it. Yes its crazy expensive but there is nothing quite like being one of the first to get a new device
  • Simple. Anything unlocked you can get in the US mutiply it by ₱50 to get the MSP when it reach Philippine shore, all custom and taxes included.
  • Any news on Dan's review? Pretty eager to see what he thinks. I may then finally order an XL. Been right until the last button click, 3 times.
  • And in Brazil the Microsoft even can't define a date to the launch. It's ridiculous
  • That's 12500 peso less than its being sold for in New Zealand stop complaining
  • BRILLIANT!! So this means that the Indian market is the most expensive to buy the Lumia 950 series! Even Phillipines is cheaper to buy from !! Lumia 950 - India $654, Ph $615
    Lumia 950XL - India $740, Ph $698. And I thought that UK is the most expensive. Great. :/
  • Our taxes and import duties to blame!
  • Bro that is not the case
  • That's the case Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Of course it's the case. The present government had already increased import duty on luxury goods only a few months after it had come to power.
  • You can thank your government for its prohibitively expensive import tax regime!
  • But it is due to your import taxes...is that not correct?.
  • correct
  • More import duty was levied in order to encourage local manufacturing of such goods. So basically, if Microsoft wants its phones and other stuff to become more popular here, they would have to make them here. Nokia had better marketing strategies than Microsoft hence it was so popular in India. Nokia had its own factory which made its phones cheaper.
  • Will be waiting more time for the price to drop. For the mean time I'll still rock my 1520. :)
  • Oh well, I'll just wait for the prices to go down... Hopefully by summer.
  • Still no love for Malaysia
  • Just letting you all know, you can get phone Lumia 950 XL from http://www.1shopmobile.com/Mobile-Phones/Nokia/Microsoft-Lumia-950-XL-LT... $669USD and $35 shipping which totals to $704USD
  • Hi. I tried to access the link you posted on 2 computers but it seems that cannot access the link. Would be more than jappy if you can assist me, sir. Thanks. :)
  • Hopefully a trade-in scheme will come.
  • Do they accept trade-ins? I'll either trade-in my 1520, wait for carriers, or just purchase straight from the store.
  • ANG MAHAL!!! I thought it will be just around 22-25k..uhh..i will wait 6 months then. :S
  • Pre, anung inexpect mo? Top of the line phone ito ng MS. Of course itll be expensive
  • Yes but, they intend not to sell these on par with other flagships like iPhones or Galaxies or Privs, etc.
    But..whatever, iPhone's are still a lot expensive than these..I might get one from kimstore with a huge discount..like on my 1520 :D
  • I got my 1520 at 18k, release price was around 33k before I believe.
  • ...same here
  • Finally! Will definitely buy one when I get home for Christmas. 950XL for me plus the display dock.
  • Here in Brazil we are not gonna see the 950 XL version because its price will almost reach heaven. It is all US$ vs R$ stuff. A dollar here is like 4 reais. The iPhone 6s Plus costs R$ 4699,00 the same thins as US$ 1150,00. Microsoft when noticed that the XL version would surpass the 3000 reais decided to wait until our economy become better.
    Apple doesn't care about it.
    The Lumia 950 will be R$ 2599,00
  • No choice but to purchase the Dual SIM variant then. Kind of disappointing that they didn't release the Single SIM variant here. A Dual SIM phone doesn't feel premium.
  • A no-SIM phone should make you feel more elite then? Good luck and happy fiesta! ;p
  • what happened to the pre ordered phones we ordered on https://profile.microsoft.com/RegSysProfileCenter/wizardnp.aspx?wizid=d5...
    hope it gets here
  • I'm from the philippines and I'm still hoping for the surface phone as my primary phone :3 :D coz the lumia series still resembles for nokia phones.    
  • No thanks...2 xpensive...
  • Yes!!!!! I'm so happy its finally here. I'mma check it out at Glorietta. I hope the local Nokia/MSFT store also carries the Mozo covers.
  • I've been waiting for this! Kinda disappointed that we don't get a free dock.
  • Finally! The flagship has come back to Manila!!!! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Buy a Xiaomi, it's only about $250 or more.
  • My last lumia's --------
    Lumia 800-lumia1320-lumia640xl. lumia 950xl too far for lumia lovers.
  • I'll pass on this one while I get the rumored Nokia C1.
  • #Filipino
  • Got excited when unbox reported this that I went to an MS store. Turns out they failed to report that it's on the 14th. :( But yeah I hope stocks don't run out since I didn't preorder and I really want to buy this before Christmas. My 1020's camera OIS is acting up (suddenly has whizzing sounds) so I can't take video with it. Plus the battery and charging connector is acting up.
  • Wow. At least it's available in PinaS. While here in Saudi Arabia, all you get is a #Soon response. Anyway, I'll be sticking with my 640XL and 1520 until a new flagship comes out next year.
  • My lumia 1520 still rocks!!! I'm skipping this one for now. Still waiting for the 1020 successor. Definitely by that time it comes out, has continuum and better specs...
  • Even here in the US, I can't afford to buy it unlock.
  • Filipinlerde bile başladı hala Türkiye'de yok. Ne saçma sapan işler bunlar.
  • it is sad to see that MS open new market but I'M not able to place an order in Canada... :(((
  • Here I was thinking that the Acer Jade Primo would get here first.  Its cheaper than I expected.  I was thinking 950 would cost P30k and the xl P40k.  I feel that there could have been a promo for the display dock though.      
  • ...well, in time for the so-called holiday salary bonuses...looking to upgrade my 1520 with the 950XL
  • Ping us if they offer a free dispute dock here in the PH. At the price I bought it, it should come with a free display dock!
  • Greeting. I just wanna kno where I can purchase a Lumia 950 and 950 XL. Please email me the store where I can buy one.. I'm located in Clark, Pampanga, Philippines. Thanks. =)
