those idiots love wasting $$$$$...do they even have a instagram app yet?
Can't go near another Windows phone. Microsoft doesn't care about their own OS and we know they don't care about their own phones. Windows phones are worse than on life support.

The above was the launch price for the 950 and 950XL
I accept that the price is exorbitant and the only explanation I have is that the pricing was done using the above as a starting point and not a price to have an inbuilt percentage profit built in
It has to be noted that both the 950 and 950 XL have failed to maintain these launch prices
I don't know if the X3 will follow suit, but for me I m no longer interested in chasing premium phone specs at launch prices.
Those interested in this flagship phone should wait to see if it does indeed fall as it will be a smart move
Windows for me is not running 2 task killers to control RAM which on premium Android is now 4Gb to 6Gb
Also nobody cannot fail to notice the roll out of "SECURITY UPDATES" on Android !
Viruses CANNOT be installed on Windows
Had I not already owned a Windows device (Windows 8) I would be interested in either the 950 or this Elite X3...
but not at the launch price

They just want something that works and meets their needs, which iOS and Android both do very well, that's why Windows 10 Mobile is and always will be the intrusive third wheel.

It's more expensive inside the EU than outside of it when supplementing the VAT, I thought it would be the other way around after Britain left it behind lol
This phone is not worth the risk.
unless it has Gears of War built in...
SpiritWolf, 15 Jul 2016Actually it's not. I am rather sure it will sell couple of millions units. I am one to buy it.... moreNuAns is having a hard time selling 400 Windows phones at well less than half of this phone. This phone will flop for sure.

Okayyy Pokémon go is real supersonic.
Let's try clash Royale...........
for the money, someone could buy a nice Windows 10 laptop.
I still can't understand from these companies why they can't make an x86-64 Windows 10 on a smartphone.

When Microsoft ruined it by its OFFICIAL upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile on 17 March 2016, l replaced it immediately with the 950 XL, paying similar money.
While still furious with Microsoft over my ruined 1520, l would not hesitate to buy this HP device at the reported price if and when available.
l am also enjoying my android, BB10, MeeGo N9 and iPhone 6Plus.
Every OS has its fun and entertainment value and somehow they complement each other shortcomings.
ash, 15 Jul 2016Does this play pokemon go?Now that should definitely clinch it !
Try eating a porcupine alive instead.
Anonymous, 15 Jul 2016$800 for last year's hardware and a failed OS? Yea, lemme open up my wallet.Last year? Huh? Last I saw this had Snapdragon 820 on it. Unless they changed it.
Why do people think only iPhone should or deserves to cost so much??? Just because it doesn't have an apple logo on it it doesn't have to be cheap if it is premium built. And yeah, I will buy this. Together with my HTC 10 and Huawei P9 Plus.
AJ_74, 16 Jul 2016I gladly pay $1500 for this monterous phone of wonder. lagdroid babies who have not important ... morewell, a sucker is born every 10 seconds. thank god for them! capitalism thriving
SpiritWolf, 15 Jul 2016Actually it's not. I am rather sure it will sell couple of millions units. I am one to buy it.... moregood that someone is optimistic. yea, it wont though. if htc 10 doesnt sell well, then an hp who most dont know sell phones wont.
