$799 for this phone, thanks but I can live without NFC, QHD display and all those military grade durability. I think the Alcatel Idol 4S Windows would be a better bet for me especially now when Microsoft has slashed its price to mere $100. As for the desktop kit I can,always buy the Microsoft HD500 dock, keyboard and mouse separately.
Worst phone ever had.
Very slow when running 3 or 4 appa simultaneously.
Can't find any good office package . Only can use Office 365 and need to buy it.
Stock browser is shit. Take ages to load web pages.And most of the web sites are not supported.
Filling web applications are very hard. Take long time .due to lag.
Ever I didn't have any problem with Bluetooth with any phone.
The worst BT connection in this phone . It not supported most of the device. Even Didn't work with my 2015 prius. Frequents lose communication between every 10-15 seconds.
Most of the windows apps are not properly worked with Elite x3
Battery pretty good stay whole day .
Sound quality nice.
Canara is average
Maheshchennai, 18 Nov 2017Can anyone say me about the camera picture quality ? Lumia phones pictures are little yellowis... moreThe camera seems to be marginally better than my 1520, but its not on par with new apple or galaxy, its clear and colors look good, but the zoom algorithm is definitely behind the big names.
Can anyone say me about the camera picture quality ? Lumia phones pictures are little yellowish, this to a Windows phone, that's why the doubt , please someone reply me who have used this phone
Well I went for almost same set up as yours after buying my Alcatel Idol 4S Windows, the only difference is than I went for Logitech K830 Illuminated Keyboard which cost me $62 so I ended up spending $321 but I can use the keyboard in dark too, still cheaper than HP Elite x3 though.
- Since latest Update is WP10 very stable, no crashes anymore.
- Still one of the bigest and finest Displays out there.
- Probably the best speakers ever built in a Smartphone.
- Specs are still comparable with the newer Android flagships.
- Native Apps are in excellent condition and you can still find many very good 3rd party Apps.
- Continuum is for simple tasks very convenient.
- You can still find couple of big Manifacturers of Hardware and accessories supporting the platform....
Rumors have it that HP will soon stop the production and that MS will support WP10 with no more major upgrades until 2020... which is probably not all that tragic for a smartphone as long as the 3rd Party Apps stay in good condition...
There is still hope that MS will come with full Windows on ARM, on a Smartphone/ Phablet device until then!

So I think this device is just overpriced.

I hav... moreI used Lumia 950 XL and i know about desktop expirience. ok phone does its job well but in other hand Viber not working? srsly ? Viber is supported by windows 10 mobile,if i wanna pay that money for that device it need to be well supported and without bugs wich is not case here as well. so real price of this phone should be about 400$ but it have HP logo on back. also samsung s8 and note 8 support desktop expirience , have big screens , better cameras, better support , stylish look , many minor features like iris scanner and wireless charge,fast charge... And guess what?S8 IS CHEAPER
Hudinited, 03 Aug 2017Bro bro bro i'm from serbia too... Personaly i dont have a phone but i meet with it few months... moreGuys, you are like everyone else.
Read specs and usability before purchasing product.
I have HP X3, almost a year, 900$ with dock, keyboard and mouse.
Works perfectly for business (MS-Exchange, Office365, Skype for Business & other).
On the other hand, if you needed a phone, you could buy something for 40-90$ - a phone.
HP Elite X3 is a sort of hybrid, a little bit away of what is usually expected from smartphone. For example Viber is useless on this device (sound does not work and signaling is odd). On the other hand skype is working perfectly. From my point it does the job for which it is made for. And BTW, every manufacturer supports product only on local market where it was purchased, even if this is global product there are local legislation related to purchase. Especially when it comes to communication equipment, this is related to legislation!
Anyway, this is Windows 10 based device. If you used to iOS or Android, this is complete change in approach. If you didn't purposed it properly than it is a money through away.
Was reading on a X3 forum on Windows Central that the X3 will be coming to Verizon in the next couple weeks. Looks like I will be picking up a new phone for Christmas or just after.
akorietem, 09 Jun 2017Ive been fan for windows phone but lack of app has drifted me away , this phone i should go ba... moreYes, It supports almost all social networking apps which you can use on any Android smartphone.
mladen, 06 Jul 2017use HP since new year,no compliment,now totally out of use,hardware and software problem,dead ... moreBro bro bro i'm from serbia too... Personaly i dont have a phone but i meet with it few months ago... my buddy have x3 and mobile networks are just fine ... even 4g works in middletown of Novi Sad... Only complain that i have is low-light performance camera... And im not a fan of windows mobile but this is pretend to be business phone... But im not sure about HP many other manufacturers use different antenas depending on region... so that in your case can be a problem since you live in canada... but 800$ really? you can stick with any other phone but you go for HP? HP is brand but not in mobile division... You have Sammy,Sony,LG,Apple,ASUS,Google,HTC,even Motorola(Lenovo),Meizu,Huawei and Xiaomi are a lot better choice... all of these companies have flagships(High-end phones) if you need Desktop expirience go with S8 if you need big screen S8+ V20 U11 I7 plus etc if you need camera go with PIXEL XZ PREMIUM S8 IPHONE 7 Plus V20 G6 P10 so many choices ... In battery as priority go with MI MIX MATE 9 MI 6 I7 Plus .... so many better choices in every aspect of this phone... I personally use V20 since release... I have all i need ... Big screen,Great camera,Smooth expirience overall,Secondary display,Fast charging,Best multimedia expirience avalible right now , battery isn't that good but i carry one more for any case,It can lasts a day but i have about 9h screen on time daily...there is no phone who can give me that battery built in...Also to mention that LG haven't bootloop issues since they change motherboard vendor and cooling system...Also there are more additional features like wide angle camera,FULL manual mode,IR blaster,Always on second display, removable back(also means u can change if you damage it ) Quad-DAC and so on... so my brother dont be fooled by HP,PANASONIC,KODAK etc ... they have phones but that's not their priority... so you cant expect boom from them... (ok priority sounds stupid Phones are not priority to SONY LG SAMMY but they have a years of expirience and fixed mistakes from the past)... Also microsoft is done with mobile division wich means one year software support in best case... Keep using gsmarena or yt and inform yourself well before you buy next one...
