Phonescoop review of Lumia 950 & 950 XL?
Speaking of Windows 10 Mobile and the recently-introduced 950 & XL, it seems to me rather conspicuous by its absence is Phonescoop's usual in-depth review of either or both of those devices. Most other websites published their reports days ago. AM I missing something here?

LUMIA 950 XL
Be great if Sprint would get off their asses and get behind a high end device like the 950 XL. It would cost me way to much money to switch carriers just to get a phone. Looks like I'll be stuck with Android for even longer. Sprint doesn't want to sell Windows phones because they say they don't sell. Well yeah if you offer one ****ty device and never advertise it or promote it, of course it's not going to sell geniuses.

The world's first closed open-source OS. Android has all of the inherent shortcomings of an open source OS, with NONE of the awesome benefits.

Lacking CDMA support, dual-SIM
Seems like a good effort on Microsoft's part, but IMO it is a FAIL that they omitted CDMA support and dual-active-SIMs. If Microsoft truly wanted to become the de-facto phone for businesses and "knock it out of the park", they just blew it.
(1) They should have exactly mimicked the RF capability of the iPhone6 and made the 950 a truly world phone.
(2) They should have made dual-active SIMs standard on these "flagship" phones. That would have been a great differentiator.
I love Windows 10 on our Surface Pro 3, I love the Windows 10 Mobile "fast ring insider" beta I have on my Lumia 635 spare phone, and I was REALLY looking forward to trading in my Android working phone and buying a Windows 10 Mobile phone with dual active SIM capabil... (continues)
