Not about price...
It's about performance, specs and Reliability Sony cells!!
Aadrian, 23 Nov 2016The most feature rich Windows 10 device there is, but it needs marketing. I bet many consumers... moreIf you want same specs at a smaller size, cheaper price and with louder speakers and camera then go for Alcatel Idol 4S Windows 10 Edition. It costs merely $469.
But yeah it isn't MIL-spec ruggedness tested like Elite x3 and it doesn't have Bang & Olufsen audio system either.
The most feature rich Windows 10 device there is, but it needs marketing. I bet many consumers would gladly have this phablet as daily driver but it needs to be marketed. I would buy it if I had the money because this phone is simply awesome.
gaurav big-G, 19 Oct 2016I am talking about flagship phone and All Android flagship phone will get 3 update.Lumia 1020,... moreall series that you said still can run win 10 but on insider preview, even for the elemen level Lumia 520 still can run with it. Google with android created comsumerist people because almost every update android need higher specs, that's why all producer love android.
Even for top hackers only need less than a minute to cracked android.
Jeff, 23 Sep 2016Everything is great about this phone other than its size, it's bit too huge for normal users. ... moreYou get used to it. I jumped from a 5.7"phone to an 8"tablet and got used to it in just 24 hours! Just enjoy whatever you're doing it's automatic and you're fliying. I've got medium hands.
syed, 19 Sep 2016I would like to buy this phone I'll buy it asap! With the anniversary updates just came out! It's show time. Awsome 5.9"screen,water proof or resistant etc...
Jeff, 23 Sep 2016Everything is great about this phone other than its size, it's bit too huge for normal users. ... moreI'm using an 8"tablet for years! A 5.9"phablet is quiet small!!! You can get used to any size just Do It. You've got 2 hands. Have fun! Stop bitching so much!
To jeff, 14 Nov 2016It's look like you have one, can I ask you if i can buy this without the lap dock?i prefer thi... moreNo you can't buy this without display dock. You have to go for at-least one kind of dock, either the display dock or the laptop dock or both.
I went for the display dock as the laptop dock is too pricey. There's reason why this phone has a polycarbonate body, they used polycarbonate so as to implement Qi/PMA wireless charging, wireless charging doesn't work with glass or metal.
It's look like you have one, can I ask you if i can buy this without the lap dock?i prefer this brand and it has a cook design, a microsoft new phone design should be like this for an upgrade to their design and atleast they make some metal this time... Just asking and saying :)
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2016Camera 16 MP is rut having f/2.2 worse focal length, should be under 2, as all Sammy, HTC, etc... moreIf you want a Windows 10 Mobile with same specs as Elite x3 but better 21 megapixel f/2.0 aperture camera then go for Alcatel Idol 4S Windows 10 Mobile edition. It's available at just $469, so it costs way cheaper than Elite x3, it's slimmer, has nice glass and metal build, at 5.5 inches it is way more compact. But of course it doesn't ship with Continuum display dock, you need to buy it separately for $99. But it is still cheaper than Elite x3.
Dear hp & micros, 12 Nov 2016Can't wait for the official specs of the elite x3 camera and hoping it has ois,4k,quick focus,... moreThe camera quality is quite good, photos are quite clear especially after the recent camera bug fix released by HP but don't expect it to be as good like the Carl-Zeiss optics equipped camera of Lumia series. But of course it the camera works smooth and the focuses pretty fast.
Can't wait for the official specs of the elite x3 camera and hoping it has ois,4k,quick focus,ETC..if the camera of hp elite x3 itself is great i hope they make a slim case with camera botton,zoom in and zoom out Since this smartphone has pogo pin then it should be used and they should make a modular camera since the camera is the only low............ I know they can do it , HP and windows is a great company... :) i cant wait i should buy this phone or not but difinitely YES........
Don't get caught out like I did with the Lumia 950. THIS IS NOT A PC ! MS advertised it in a similar way to the X3 rah rah rah. These windows 10 phones all use ARM chips, and cannot run .exe files. ARM and x86 chipsets use completely different languages and you cannot run a program (as in .exe) on an ARM. It will run apps that's all.
Omid46, 01 Nov 2016Still $1200 + is ultra expensive price!!!?Even a Windows fan can buy at least 10 Microsoft 640... moreIf you want a Windows 10 Mobile phone with same specs and lower price then wait for Alcatel Idol 4S Windows 10 edition, it is going to be released for just $469.00 on November 10.
So many whiners. If you dont like windows mobile 10. Dont use it. Its because your android phone cant use continuum and x86 apps. Android users are you jealous of this. Microsoft have big plans for the future of developing windows 10 mobile. In the future windows 10 mobile devices will have keyboards that cover the phone, continuum with windowing and offering more like pc experience. A 3 in 1 device is the future of windows mobile. As microsoft said they will continue to develop windows mobile no restarts or reboots.
Microsoft edge in continuum becomes desktop mode microsoft edge.
Are you envy or jealous that so many years android did not do this.
Still $1200 + is ultra expensive price!!!?Even a Windows fan can buy at least 10 Microsoft 640 XL LTE midrange phablet 5.7 inches smartphone(Undoubtety,the second one in Microsoft 30 bullet lumia machine-gun automatic shooting after the premium high-end lumia 950 XL LTE!!!)!?Any logical reasonable reason for such backbone breaking too much pricing!!!?Thanks to listen to answers....Justice Rights.
SNambiath, 18 Oct 2016No, you CANNOT run Windows Server on ANY Smartphone! All Windows 10 Smartphones run the OS ... moreNow where was it I read about Windows 2016 server Smartphone edition!!?? He will probably want to make it a DC next, with Exchange 2016 as well!
Should have had 8GB of ram if it was really going to be first pc-phone hybrid!
