  • I would like to win this! :P
  • I would like to choose 950Xl not just because of its suffix 'XL', because of its corning gorilla glass screen , better battery backup , high end 6"screen for better gameplay (movies also) experience, Water cooled technology chipset with latest Snapdragon processor.. And IN SHORT... It blows the party with continuum also and a complete mini computer in my pocket.
  • It's "only" 5,7" and 950 also has gorilla glass and continuum. Bigger battery is probably off set by bigger screen. Now, if 950 would've had 1080p screen it would've been a tough choice since that would've translated into better battery life and would've been completely sufficient. It was gorgeous enough on 6" of 1520
  • I would love to have either phone. They both are very sexy phones IMHO.
  • IMHO, if i win, i'd love anything they send. 
  • me too!
  • Me too, too. 
  • Me three!
  • They are both great but i choose the XL because of the bigger screen
  • Probably non of us will win, it's a very slim chance. anyway 5.2 is big enough, I think.
  • I'd choose the non-XL, because of the smaller screen :D
  • yeah , you're right
  • Who wouldn't? :)
  • It would be less of a size adjustment from the 1520 though Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Misa too!!
  • The xl is to small. Tye 1520 is bigger :( was so happy. Won't get it now
  • I want black 950XL :))
  • We all do! :P
  • How is XL to small ? :) 1520 is huge ... wouldn`t hold that in my pants, no free space if you know what i mean! :))) Jk
  • Lol... You nailed it...
  • Yep 1520 is bigger but it kind old now. 
  • Meh. It's great.
  • XL to small? I think it's big enough, with 5,7 inch (#CMIIW) and 1520 is bigger? it's 6". They just different 0,3 inch... :v
  • Yep, as a 1520 owner I agree - 0.3" is nothing compared to the increased specs
  • You do realize that what you get as an improvement in GGlass 4 over 3, you lose in thickness, don't you? For the most part it's don't to design selection as the XL is a bit bigger. Not much.
  • Bought the Black 950 XL from Amazon site. Expect it before Christmas. Wouldn't mind another though. :)
  •   I got mine from the MS Store the night it became available (Thanksgiving night). ​I put my US and Malaysian SIM cards in it and hopped on a plane to come back here to Malaysia.  It's been a good phone...my 1520 is a great phone!!!  The main problem that I've had with the 950XL is app compatability.  The 1520 is also running Win10 but everything still works on it, and updates are always there.  I'm starting to really like 'Windows Hello' on 950XL...it gets faster all the time.  The whole phone gets better.  I just wish that I could get the updates.  I think that it will be a Great Phone in a month or two, as it keeps improving on it's own.  I want the 950 so that I can compare it to the XL. (Thanks for Windows Central - you guys do a great job)
  • If you win one, send it to me :)

  • I'm not playing in the contest because i want someone else to win it since I already have the XL.  But yes I dropped a heavy drive array on it (15lbs at least) and i thought the screen would do.  It landed right on the screen but it survived and no scratches.  Still need to be super careful because sometimes the right angle will destroy anything.
  • I would love to win a 950 XL as i miss windows phone after switching from 1020 to an iphone 6. 
  • Anything would be nice
  • I would have to agree!
  • Good luck

  • I would love the Lumia 950. I've had to Frankenfix my 920 as I've had it for three years now. It's been in for repair with Nokia twice and recently I've had to change the battery and the USB charging port. It well and truly is on its last legs and I would love to replace it with the 950 which looks fantastic.

  • I were to win this, I'd drop Verizon in a heartbeat, despite having to pay a cancellation fee. LOL.
  • This is why I hate Verizon.
  • I plan to drop Verizon anyway in about 6 months if they don't start playing nice with Microsoft.  If I won this I could drop them sooner!
  • give it to me babe!
