soz but to many apps on windows are missing for my tastes, I love windows 8.1 mobile I even like windows 10 mobile exept hamburger manu but here maps and now paypal is to many for me. I hope they sort out the app issue cause in 2014-2015 it really wasn't a issue that it is now. And now I'm used to android on my s7 edge and yes its expensive, I'm still very happy cause I have here maps I have my paypal back I have a you tube app that is reliable unlike my favorite metrotube that was hit and miss last few months on my 930. More importantly my speakerphone comes on when I put the phone on the table something my Lumia 930 with windows 8.1 did with gestures and still nearly 2 years later windows 10 still doesn't have. No wireless payment like it should have been on my Lumia 930 2 years ago. soz but I'm not willing to go on anylonger with windows mobile, I felt like a second class citizen on windows and that's what microsoft made me feel lie, I don't on my edge s7 expensive phone, but you know what, its worth every penny. I still miss the windows ui and live tiles and Cortana loads though.

I'd still get the the x3 with it's failing (but still good performing) OS over another overpriced Android device like the Sony XPricy, unless said Android device has top-of-the-line flagship specs and sold for a much cheaper price than HP/Sony.

Also Cec compatible via mhl allowing to use your TV remote to control the phone

Digital noise cancellation for music, films games built in
Ldac high resolution wireless which is 3 times higher bit rate than standard Bluetooth
the bad thing is that sony don't advertise much of these features

I remember gba emulator was best on my old e65. And playing with buttons was more fun than with touch screen.
Qxdir, 18 Jul 2016If only it was android...There will be many androids with similar specs. If it was Android, HP would be another Sony,Lenovo,HTC. Not making profits but hey they make Android. With windows phone this is gonna be only high end phone for some time. I think HP would be selling more with windows than Android.

I can understand this if you were a shareholder in samsung or google. Trying to be advocate of big companies who screw you over to get your money.Smh

imparanoic, 19 Jul 2016people say xperia performance is expensive, this is even less value This is the highest-end and best phone Windows 10 Mobile has to offer and for $700 it's not a bad one if you're a diehard fan of the platform or enjoy the whole 10 ecosystem, whereas the Sony XP isn't even the best Android smartphone even though it's certainly one of the priciest even if you decide to get the bundle package deal for the x3 lol
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2016Then it would have been an utterly useless phone.To you maybe. Not to the rest of many many millions globally who'd be willing to give this a chance. This is a Nexus 2016 done right should HP know what's good for them.
