  1. These two handsets, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are the most waited handsets for Indian users who wants to stick to Windows Phone OS and delaying the release date may harm Microsoft. Like say the release of iPhone 6/6s ahead of these handsets has cost some of the users. Microsoft could have a better strategy I guess.
